The Best (And Worst) of Video Game April Fool's
Here's the only true thing you will read on the internet today: This episode is not a prank. Instead of trying to fool everyone, Maddy, Jason, and Kirk are going back in time to look at the history of video game April Fool's jokes: the good, the bad, and the very, very ugly. From fake Zelda movies to Assassin's Creed Kinect, there's a lot to laugh at this week.
Correction 4/1/2021: We initially thought the Assassin's Creed Kinect joke video was made by Ubisoft, but it actually wasn't. That part of the conversation has been updated and edited for accuracy. Sorry about that!
One More Thing:
Kirk: Monster Hunter Rise, baybeeeee
Maddy: Incomparable by Brie and Nikki Bella
Jason: The Grace of Kings by Ken Liu
