|Whoa, look what I just got in my e-mail:|
From: Alex_TG@<edited out>
Subject: Noctis V Screenshots.
Hey there, TV..
I've got some problems with my internet, and couldn't access AnywhereBB anymore for some reason. However, I can still check my e-mail, and that's why I'm able to send this message..
Anyways, I thought i'd be nice for a while, and give you all a few Noctis V screenshots.. That includes the long awaited Surface Screenshots As to not kill your mailbox, I've put them on a free site adress I obtained myself a long while ago, way before AnywhereBB even existed..
Enjoy, and don't forget to show this to all of the others around there!
Here's the link to the .zip file containing all of the new screenshots.. TinyURLified because of the extreme length of the URL..
This idea shameless stolen from megagun. Ok, I know I'm a few days late for the april fools joke, but it would've been a little obvious if I'd just posted it on the day. We should make this an annual tradition.

|It's a four-days late april fool's joke. He admits it in the tiny text at the bottom, but you don't need to be a brain surgeon to realise that something is iffy when the post is made by a regular member rather than any one of the umpty million mods we have in this forum.|
There was not even a pay-off, like a link to some strange joke-site or pictures of silly animals or something. If there had at least been a picture of a cat superimposed on an NIV landscape with the subtitle "Im on ur planet, killing ur burds!" I would have maybe smiled a little.
|You know how I knew it was fake? I mean, aside from the caps and all. It was the fact that he used Alex_TG@<edited out>, and I know the only e-mail address Alex uses and it doesn't start with that |
I also agree with Magnulus, it isn't really funny.
|I think an older thread actually has the exact same title as this one doesn't it? |
The ultimate April Fools would be Alex making a news post about the release of NV, with a link at the bottom. Everyone clicks the link expecting it to be a joke...it turns out to be the actual download...meaning the ultimate joke isn't a joke at all.

|It originally was my joke (TV4fun copied the text ) and back then I figured it might have had some credibility, as I had been working double-time on Noctis IV CE back then.. |
|Well then I guess that makes it even less funny since it's a copy of a joke done last year.|

|even though i am a relatively new member and it is not my place to say what should happen...|
i suggest this thread be renamed to reflect the lack of funniness and possibly be moved to whatever.
Agreed. Done and... done.

|Locked and trashed would be better for this kind of bad jokes.|
|Yeah, that was kind of lame... it's a bit difficult to believe the post when there isn't even a link to anything in it.|
Feeling sorry for everyone, I decided it couldn't hurt to upload a real surface shot I had lying around. : )
