    Welp, this.
    Hi folks,

    We've been busy doing lots of cool and good stuff over at Sega Retro for the past few months, including some new changes that may affect for your experience.

    1. On December 1, we will be moving Sega Retro to a HTTPS-first setup rather than supporting mixed HTTP/S traffic. This may affect your sessions if you are currently logged into Sega Retro while using http.
    2. On December 1, we are also extending out the single sign-on that we've developed to include Sega Retro. This means that if you have an existing Sega Retro account, you will need to make an account at Retro CDN (or use your existing Retro CDN login) to continue using the site. Any new accounts created after December 1 on Sega Retro, NEC Retro or Retro CDN will all work as one login system.

    Thanks for continuing to support Retro, and if you haven't take a look at some of the things we've been doing lately (like making our own Metacritic for old games or building a database that dynamically retrieves developer credits) take a look!
