Deus Ex: Human Defiance not a game, trademark repurposed for April Fool’s

February’s Deus Ex: Human Defiance trademark isn’t for a new game of any kind, Eidos Montreal has confirmed on the Deus Ex Facebook page. “The Human Defiance name was registered on the off-chance it we might need it, but it was decided later that it wouldn’t be used,” the post noted. The developer posted an April Fools Day trailer for a retro-style game of the same name, which you can check out through the break.

    We don’t normally post April Fool’s Day stuff, but this one isn’t a joke. ArenaNet has actually put together a retro-style adventure update for Guild Wars 2.

  • Zelda movie is best April Fool's joke ever

    We hate April Fool’s Day, but this IGN video of what appears to be a Zelda film trailer is just excellent. We take our hats off: a new level of acting like a tit on the internet. Really, you have to see this. After the “link”.
