    With the WoW Armory changing all player models to the Walruses, the Armory background image has a bucket reference to it. Just right click the image, and click View Background Image.

    That was a sidescroller with a guy that kind of looked like Bishop from x-men right? I definitely played that and would play a sequel or re-issue on Live or something. Is that their joke? I can't see their site from work.

    Part of their joke is that they're making a new one. Thorne harder. Screenshots include surfing. But yeah, that game owned for the amiga.

    The battlenet one is the best one so far.

    XKCD is using some kind of unix-but-not-really-unix file system for navigation on the front page. I'm sure there's easter eggs a-plenty in there but as it is I suck and can't even remember how to open a text file in unix :(

    *edit* Found one, if you type "Make me a sandwich" it returns "What? Make it yourself". If you type "Sudo make me a sandwich" it returns "Ok". I imagine then all of the easter eggs are going to be based on previous comics.

    *edit2* You can go south and be eaten by a grue.

    It has a directory structure.. which you can delete:
    xkcd.png

    (if you're not familiar with unix, what's happening at the bottom is that I have deleted every file on the disk, and the command 'ls' no longer exists)

    The site stays in this broken state until you do a reload.

    yeah I totally did the make me a sandwich thing. wonder how many times that was typed in there today

    Valve has only done two April fool's that I can remember. One way back about Counter-Strike, and one last year about Jarate.

    They may have not done one this year.

    Yes, but as far as I know everyone's still watching them from the whole Portal 2 announcement, as we all wait for Ep. 3. Now would be a great time to do something.
