[Update: I'm wondering if this "Farcry Blood Dragon" interview might hint that "The Abyss" and "Terminator" actor Michael Biehn will be voicing the protagonist on this for now, purely hypothetical expansion.]
The problem with the ever-escalating battle for April Fools superiority--particularly in the tech sector--is that some exciting ideas poke through and fans are left wanting some gadget or game remake/de-make that will never be.
And ultimately, I hope Ubiosft hasn't allowed themselves to be caught up in St. Liar's Day, and that the continued teases for what appear to be a VHS-era expansion for "Far Cry 3" are teasing an actual thing that we'll be able to play in the near future--even more so based on the period-perfect title crawl in this trailer Kotaku spotted this morning.
"Blood Dragon"--whatever it is--comes complete with its own "official" site complete with eye-bruising, Geocities-era layout and the conceit that it's a critically-acclaimed feature by fake director "Alexis Graveyard," and I'm sure if we poked around at it enough, there's a super-secret reveal about the game buried somewhere in there.
According to the site, the story takes place in the far-flung year 2007, where an Army of U.S. cyborg soldiers have discovered a powerful bioweapon on a distant island. Our hero is Mark IV Cyber Commando Sergeant Rex Power Colt who has been dispatched for "find out what the hell is going on."
Oh, and keep your eyes open at the 00:41 mark for what looks to be the first still from the game. If it's actually a game.
