Pokémon takes over Google Maps
Google has published a video advert for a Nintendo Pokémon game that involves Google Maps. As you can see in the video, Google claims you can now use your smartphone to see little cartoon, battle-ready Pokémon appear in front of you.
“Dozens of wild Pokémon have taken up residence on streets, amidst forests and atop mountains throughout Google Maps,” explained Google. “To catch ’em all, grab your Poké Ball and the newest version of Google Maps for iPhone or Android. Then tap the search bar, press start, and begin your quest.”
Blizzard comes back to April Fools with a big one
A company that’s been absent from previous April Fools lists, but this year was one of the best out of everyone in our opinion is Blizzard, and its mock launch of a new game entitled ‘Outcasts: Vengeance of the Vanquished.‘
While a quick glance at the page reveals it’s a blatant April Fools, the amount of work Blizzard has poured into the art and copy for the game is impressive. The game hinges on all of the classic also-ran, cast aside bad-guys from Blizzard’s games being able to visit revenge. The company even went as far as designing a custom controller for the game complete with a credit card slot.
Minecraft turn everyone in to villagers
Everyone in Minecraft got turned into villagers except one person. ShutupBrick.
Mojang said on their website: “The long-nosed villagers introduced in Minecraft beta 1.9 have become sentient. They have taken over our skin servers and content delivery networks (CDN), so unfortunately you will not be able to change your skins until we fix the problem. We are desperately trying our best to pull the plugs, but we should prepare ourselves to serve under our new villager overlords. Singularity may be upon us.”
