The Legend of Zelda (http://movies.ign.com/dor/articles/863515/legend-of-zelda-movie-trailer/videos/legendofzelda_filmtrailer_040108.html) debut movie trailer.

.:Edit:. Looks like GameSpot (http://www.gamespot.com/) is also running flash page with fake articles. Still not as good as their World of StarCraft.

Damn! Shame that is an April Fool's Joke. I mean, it looked cheesy, but it still looked kind of fun.

I'll be telling my students today I decided to cancel class because I felt giving an exam right after spring break was a horrible thing to do. Then promptly give them th exam anyways.

Anyone remember that April's Fools joke from EGM a while back? When they told people that Capcom's Resident Evil 2 had a secret easter egg in which you can use A***a from street figher in the game. You had like 8 times in S rank plus a bunch of other silly stuff. I remember people believed it so much and actually trying to get A***a. Some of my friends even told me they unlocked him. Too bad they confessed it was a April Fool's joke.

Luckily I stopped it and avoided disaster before it could attach itself to my brain for the rest of the day. Nothing worse than having a stupid song stuck in your head all day. I'd like to thank Mischief for the NKOTB yesterday.

Ok Borfase I hate you for that, lol. I was sitting in the living room with a bunch of people when that played. Now everyone definitely thinks I am a closet gay. Anyways, I thought the Blizzard ones were hilarious. It just took me a while to figure out that they were pranks. It seems kinda weird that they spent that much on that Zelda trailer. Who's to say that they arent really making one?
