April Fools: Blizzard's Annual Jokes

Are you tired of April Fools Day yet? I'm not. I love it, and not just because I'm finally going to meet my hero Bigfoot (and hopefully Evil Kenevil). It's because I love jokes. Especially when they're funny. Like Blizzard's jokes this year.

The makers of World of Warcraft and Diablo have come up wtih these hysterical bits:

  • Blizzard Storefront is offering the "Diablo III Deckard Cain X-Treme Gamer Blanket" it features "patented Freedom of Movement Holes" and is "covered in runes of warmth," as well as a full body, Diablo III-themed pillow.
  • World of Warcraft is revitalizing their equiptment system with the Equipment Potency Equivalence Number. As you get better and better equipment, your EPEEN will grow and grow!
  • Battle.net is offering a plug-into-your-head Neural Interface.
  • Blizzard Mobile is offering a pair of new games: Blackthorne 2: Thorneharder and Queen's Quest. Hey, a mobile version of the old King's Quest game doesn't sound like a joke to me as much as a great idea!

What do you think? Good crop of Blizzard jokes this year or what?
