Power Button - Episode 5: April Fooling With Dan "Shoe" Hsu
April 06, 2010
This week on Power Button we sit down with Bitmob's Dan "Shoe" Hsu and talk April Fool's Day pranks from the gaming world. Which gags were our favorites? Which needed work? Did any of them actually fool us? Is Sega actually relaunching Ecco the Dolphin as a shooter? Wouldn't an iCade for your iPad be really neat? You'll have to listen to the show to hear all about it. After that, we take Shoe on a walk down memory prank lane with a retrospective of our favorite jokes from his tenure at Electronic Gaming Monthly to hear the secret stories behind infamous fake articles involving the legacy of Street Fighter II's Sheng Long, a remastered realistic version of The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker that caused trouble with GameStop and Nintendo, the truth behind Lego Halo, and more.
