Lol, tom, that was really the best april joke ever! I'm lovin it! YOu really got me with that one!
it was a good april fools joke. i fell for it at first, and then i realized what day it was.
Ha! I knew it! :)
I was actually confused when I saw the homepage yesterday. Then I read some of the user comments and I remembered that yesterday was April Fools Day!
If Newgrounds does actually support McDonalds, that would be sad. Think about it. We would be viewing a website that promotes fat greasy food. I haven't eaten McDonalds' food in over five or six months now. (thank god!) I mean the food DOES arguably taste good. However, the food is not good FOR you, especially if you eat their food very often.
Anyway, good one Tom!
Penny Arcade did a great strip about IGN.com's stint as a corporate whore. They described the site something to the effect of "it looks like Ronald McDonald shit all over it". I think it's sad that the look of NG's parody wasn't even half as bad as the actual IGN site while it was still up, but the altered descriptions of the frontpage features were a nice touch.
Speaking of the frontpage, I still think that Drag Racer and Love Hina Sim Date should be removed in favor of something more recent.

I agree with that, love hina is already so long on the frontpage. Damn, i played that game enough now. It needs to make place for a new entry.
Anyway, is that thing from IGN also a joke?
They actually rebranded their entire site to reflect the golden arches, with pictures of McGriddles floating around in every corner. It was the most horrifying thing you could ever witness
Jeasus I can't belive they did that I'm so glad you didn't keep that because that is so dumb having McDonalds being your sponser.
Sincerly Petey The Great.

rabid do you rven CHECK the front page?
Eww, total sell outs! It annihilated a perfectly good site.
Makes you sick just looking at it. The food, I mean. Who actually enjoys eating McDonalds' food?

Hmm, i can't find a joke there. Anywayz, if macdonalds would be the NG sponsor, there would come out a lot of macdonalds games, and mac donalds banners...I wouldn't like that....

Anyway, the McNG logo was the wierdest part: "We Love to See You Smile!" *shudder*
That would be me ;-) Just a little ps can go a long way. :-D
Till of course you forget to redo the date.
Yeah McNewgrounds was the Best. Gag. Ever.
When I got to that page yesterday I was LMAO now that I think about it I should have taken some screenies :(
Was a joke?
I thought that was real! :'(
I was fooled!
(By the way, that pic that you posted is very big, more than 450 pixles)

I also agree with that!!! Lets start an anti-dragracerandhinasimdate protest action!!!!
No serieus its time for those 2 to leave the front page!!!
Do you honestly think a company like Nintendo would:
a) Continue to allow the paradoys of thier games on a site they are sponsoring to inlcude such high brow images as Luigi whacking off or Mario calling the princess a bitch?
b) Endorse a website with such colorful content as a game entitled "Pussy or raw meat"?
c) Wish to be affiliated with 90% of the retards that can't spell thier own name or tie thier own shoes that frequent this site?
NG is just fine the way it is thank you very much.

yeah, one of my friends thought someohe hacked him finally.
Also when it was mcnewgrounds yesterday it actually looked pretty good. Compared to IGN's "I'M LOVIN IT" fagtastic layout.

A little off topic but please get a new face.
I loved that joke. I didn't do anything for April Fools day. In fact, I completely forgot about it, until I hit Newgrounds at like 11:45 or something, and then I remebered and was all like "Shit! I missed it!" so I silently weeped myself to sleep, but not before starting a cartoon based on the joke. It'll be cool. Maybe. Oh, and just to confirm with you all, everyone who's cool knows that DQ is where it's at.
Yep ign have now done it with rainbow six 3
THE TOOL KITS LOVE ADVERTS, I personally liked the mcdonalds
site, made me hungry lol

'Fraid not. There was definitely an all-McD's IGN.com for a while, though I never got to see just how bad it was myself. I'm guessing the screenshot is authentic, especially judging by what other people are saying on here.
I for one didn't like IGN much before that. Sites like that and Gamespot really pissed me off when they eliminated most of their free content and put it all into pay services like "IGN Insider". I don't care how good a site is, I can usually find about the same content for free elsewhere on the internet. I wouldn't even pay a monthly fee for NG. Maybe I'm just a cheap bastard....
