Awesome "April's Fools" around the net?!

Blizzard's already famous for their April's Fools for World of Warcraft or Starcraft. What other ones did you find and like?

The Star Wars Battlefront subreddit temporarily turned itself into Jar Jar Binks mode. It was glorious. :lol:

While not from this year, the developers of Eve Online did an awesome one back in 2013. We were kind of disappointed they didn't do one this year.

Bohemia Interactive took a shit on all their Arma 3 customers and jokingly stated ACE3 was being developed

I liked StylusIRL because it's just a pen really. FireStorm team didn't have one this year, and watching people think the Nintendo Direct was an April Fool's prank was funny too.

Well, I've personally experienced the... rather "rotational" last moments of Retrospring, along with the crazy "everyone now has Miku avatars" update to my Twitter client.

I've also come across some nice new Skyrim mods that, despite being obvious jokes, were pretty good compared to everything else to come out of that nexusmods place.

MechWarrior Online dropped a doozy during their countdown to the UrbanMech release.



Speaking of 'Mechs, War Thunder introduced the ST-1 walking tank.



And two years ago, we come full circle when BattleTech released the (completely useable in the tabletop game!) Technical Readout: 1945.

Reddit introduced The Button.

New cults popped up nearly overnight. It's insane. I'm holding out for sub-10-seconds or so
