    If this isn't an April 1st prank, I look forward to seeing what comes from Sega Retro.

    I'm really glad the decision was made to get rid of the Sonic boards. It was getting so bad half the time I would take one look in the Sonic 4 stuff and just not feel like posting at all. I am definitely signing up on Sega Retro though. Cheers!

    Please expand on that post, there is more to Sonic than just 'Sonic 4'

    As for this update :(
    I'll just lurk about in the members lounge..

    I'll patiently wait for tomorrow. I don't doubt Sonic Retro is becoming a subpart of a SEGA Retro or something. But dropping the Sonic out of it? Makes me sad, I was liking this community.

    EDIT: That, and the banner is ugly.

    This will make the transition a little easier while we sort things out behind the scenes.

    And yes, segaretro.org has been in the planning for months, take a look at the wiki timestamps. You think we dreamt this idea up a couple of days ago in the staff channel or something?
     
  7. I do smell some parallels to apil fools but hey, some cool stuff has been released on April 1sts before :P

    I just meant that some times all the crazy nitpicking and what not would just make me not want to post at all in the forums. It gave me a bad taste in my mouth. I was posting elsewhere in the Sonic forums though. I was pretty interested in the comic section personally. I'm looking forward to seeing if the hacking community starts getting into other series other than Sonic now.

    Come on Ristar 2!

    Welcome to SOSTH, Area 51 and SSRG life circa 2003 - 2005 :eng101:

    In all honesty though, making a website more generalized towards SEGA is a good idea. I'm sure there are LOTS oif things we have had yet to unearth because we were so focused on Sonic.

    The rational, and tone in the first post - or few posts - brings back unsettling memories of the 2003 - 2004 Sonic scene / Emulationzone scene, of when Andy canned the SSRG in 2003 - or even (before? after?), when the Mario Fan Games Galaxy site was accused of having pirated materials, and the site was taken down/the owners of the site kicked from the emulationzone hosting they had without so much as an examination into the validity of the accusation. My point being, when addressing the issues that spark change, don't be an Andy.
     
  10. This is retarded. Not only do you make legal issues by having the company name instead of the team name. Don't you think that opening it to sega would draw a larger crowd of idiots? I don't thnk you thought this through. And since I'm not gonna be part of this crap anymore, I can just say fuck you you stupid bitch

    Vette Z: I think maybe some "respect" is at least at hand here, although you have the right to share your own thoughts, I think maybe you should be a bit subtle with it, without the cursing at least =%

    Plus I don't think you made much of a good point, sorry.

    This is even theorically possible? (Never mind practically.)

    I understand why you guys are angry and all, but... Either way, april 1st or not, I think it will be a good thing.

    I feel bad for Scarred Sun and the staff of retro with having to put with the Sonic 4 thread and the idiots there. It looks like she couldn't take it anymore and I don't blame her. I'll admit I'm little suprised though as it was something unexpected. Of course, I feel like an idiot if this turns out to be an April Fools joke. Can never really tell with the internet.

    The starting line is the Act 1 Boss of Death Egg, Ristar makes a cameo in single player, Doomsday Ship makes multiple cameos, Eggrobos, and tons of paths and debris.

    So, allow me to get it straight. Basically, you are all saying that I can finally talk about Shining Force, and how they are shitting on the franchise compared to the classic ones, without being flammed and/or trolled at all, and finally getting some love for that game. As well as talking about unreleased games, such as the remake of Land Stalkers that was supposed to come to the PSP but never came. Is that it?

    I don't understand what's so hard about wanting to generalise a goal to fill a niche that previously didn't exist. Besides, the amount of information on Sonic is finite-- the only two options after we've sufficiently exhausted Sonic research and engineering are either to expand or fade into irrelevance. Refusing to evolve would result in stagnation and ultimately death of the community, while changing gives us a chance to avoid such a faith.<!--QuoteEnd--></div><!--QuoteEEnd-->

    Wow, philosophical there matey.

    To be perfectly honest, I was fed up of the Sonic 4 Bitching when I joined the forum, and hated the fact that I was getting crushed by people without any kind of remorse for not having the same negative outlook.

    If the Sonic part of <strike>Sonic </strike>SegaRetro is gone, then whoop-de-doo. Looks like the morons who hate this game for existing (yet also complaining when it didn't exist), because it hasn't turned out in the way they had seen in their heads.....Good fucking riddance.

    I'll check back a lot less often from now on, seeing as I don't really know about SEGA pre-1991, and at the moment, I don't have plans to, because nothing interesting seemed to have happened back then.

    All this can prove, is that, even the Smartest, more incorruptable Sonic fans will one day fall, because they are outnumbered by a factor of 100000.

    Today I was waking up with good hopes of something funny for april fools, something like the last year (going back to SWS2B time). So today I read this and well... fuck. All I can say to this. I'm just glad that I made only one post in the S4 topic. :v:
