This was the worst April Fools joke ever. Even worse than the time Mom's called me and told me she was dead.I was suspicious at how easy it was, though.

Posted by: SoupDragon on 4/1/2012 9:27:20 PM
And to think I made it all the way to 11:45PM without encountering a single April Fools prank all day.......figures. (figures as in "I would like my Galactus now please")

Posted by: batman_25932 on 4/1/2012 8:48:37 PM
Man, I was so looking forward to getting that free Chaos War Fast Forces pack! I went from WTH, to "FU The Le!!!", to LoLing at how "too good to be true" this all was.

Thanks for a good laugh!

Posted by: Sundown on 4/1/2012 3:31:02 PM
Has anyone stopped to think that today is April Fool's Day? I can't see why Wizkids would be putting out a spaceship shooter game that has 80's graphics and nothing to do with either clix or comics!

US and Canadian residents only please.
