Sorry for not providing a fake interview, I've already written a fake article today (for Wookieepedia, a Star Wars encyclopedia, http://starwars.wikia.com) and this news entry, so I didn't feel like writing the interview... Besides, it would be hard to imitate Fabrice's style :).

It could have also worked if you had said that Nival was now working with Strategy First and that all of there work was switched to Disciples III

As with all other April Fools jokes, one need only look at the date. ;)

Anyone remember last year's Adaptive Forts (AF) gag?

I very rarely believe any jokes on this day (including this partnership one), but I actually thought the Adaptive Forts one could have been real. The idea Fabrice proposed was actually well thought out, so I had doubts as to whether or not it was true.

OMG I fell for it very bad! :) Of course it's now April 2 now, so my resistance was somewhat lowered. Thanks Needles, the moment I clicked the comment button I saw your reply that saved my day. :)

The sad fact is, most of the complaints UBI supposedly mentioned aren't far off the mark.

Could someone please remove this newspost? It was a very obvious joke on 1st of April, haha-then, but now it is a thorn in the eye! It just keep on getting more and more real everytime I see it. It's just in my mind of course, but yet- what excists, really, outside my own mind?
