View Full Version : Favorite Online April Fool's Day Jokes 2015

04-01-2015, 04:07 PM
While there is plenty of personal pranking and such that goes on today, what I've truly come to love about April Fool's Day is the way websites and game companies react to the day.

Today has started out bright and happy for me with a change to the Smash Wiki (http://www.ssbwiki.com/Main_Page) site, which is now the Smash Riki site, a website centered around the awesomeness of Riki from Xenoblade Chronicles.

Riki is best character in all two games he appear in! This website all about Riki! Riki is Heropon of Frontier Village! Appointed by Chief Dunga, Riki take command of Shulk, Melly, and Hom Hom friends and travel world, finding bad guys and fighting them to shreds! Spurred by fame, Riki then appear in game of Smash Bros.! Riki so good that he not allowed to fight, and instead jumps in to help random sidekicks when they grab sidekick shiny, or when Shulk calls for Chain Attack! Riki is 40 years old, so no treating him like child! Riki's favourite letter is exclamation point! (Clicky for more!)

Share some more of the online fun that you've encountered, so that we can catch some great jokes that we may otherwise miss.

EDIT: The Smash Riki site also includes Riki's "News from other worlds" featuring some upcoming game releases from Smash Bros's other franchises. My favorites are highlighted here:

Xenoblade Chronicles: Oh, Riki You're So Fine
Hey You, Pikachu 2
Zelda CD-i: The Remastered Legacy Collection
Aerosmith's Rockin' Roller Coaster: The Video Game
Super Mario: Revenge of the Rejected Characters
Pokémon TemporalDiamond and CelestialPearl
Metal Gear Solid 3.14: Sons of the Snake-Eating Patriots

Reddit has a pretty clever one going on right now.

I'm so not pushing the button. I haven't even unlocked it yet.

Reddit is actually pretty amusing today. /r/dataisbeautiful (http://www.reddit.com/r/dataisbeautiful/) is no longer about graphs but about Star Trek's Data

/r/WoW (http://www.reddit.com/r/wow) is in comic sans and totally about dank memes

r/TodayILearned (http://www.reddit.com/r/todayilearned) is now all about conspiracy theories

r/movies (http://www.reddit.com/r/movies/)and official movie circlejerk about all those indy movies you like that everyone else totally doesn't and that's so edgy.

IN OTHER NEWS Goodreads announced a new phone app KINDLR (https://www.goodreads.com/blog/show/498-announcing-kindlr-the-new-goodreads-dating-app), a dating app using your reading history to pair you with matched.

Google also has the maps as pacman. Go play pacman on your street. I got to level 13 before I lost all my lives.

Youtube will ask you if you meant "Darude - Sandstorm by Darude"? anytime you search something

I follow the Game Grumps channel (inb4 complaints about their fan base, believe me, I know). Their prank this year was Arin and Ross "cancelling" Game Grumps and releasing Toon Grumps, which is just watching them talk over making animations instead. It wasn't funny, which isn't a problem, but as a fan it was very interesting to hear what they had to say since it basically was an hour and ten minute long podcast. If you're into animation and whatnot, it is also interesting to hear them talk about the technical aspects and behind the scenes stuff.

So basically their prank this year wasn't about fooling anyone, but to just chill and shoot the ****. If anyone is interested here is the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jca8apuvKOA

Been lazy and listening to music on YouTube. If you search for ANY music on YouTube the correct result will come up, but it will always display "Did you mean: Darude - Sandstorm by Darude"

I laughed.

The button is driving me nuts. I love it.

I liked that! I wish it was real. :(

Anyway, I kinda enjoyed Tumblr's joke, but Coppy was annoying as hell. I ignored him most of the time.

Was I helpful to you?
[Yes] [No] [Okay?]
