    Yes, we're getting redesigns! It's about time, I don't want Sonic to get stagnant like Mario. Mario always looks like Mario, it's so damn boring.

    I liked the cohesion that came along with Unleashed honestly, if only because every 3D Sonic model that came before it was awful. And just like with Lost World, I don't trust Sega doing anything new. At all. Change makes me very afraid.

    Ya know what I'd like? De-designs. Go the classic route and pretend Modern never happened. Or even a stylistic change. We don't need steroid Knuckles though. That's too far.

    Instituting it now: the sharks are at the ready. If this turns sour (and boy, am I expecting the worst... call it preparation) please try to keep the criticism/complaining civil. If you must go full child mode, I'm sure Sega's own forums will happily take you.

    If this truly is going to bring about redesigns based on the silouettes of the show teaser pic, which we will not be certain of for another 16 or so hours, then I'm expecting full nuclear on the fandom. I wasn't around on the internet when the first major redesigns were unvealed, but I was for when the 4Kids VAs replaced the Adventure game VAs. That shit was bananas. Such an event could mean a level of bananas the likes of which I am completely unprepared for.

    There's a popcorn gif that I had around here somewhere, because words can't express how much fun I anticipate the internet meltdown being.

    I just feel like the redesign can't go series wide as they just released a game that deviated a ton from the last 3, and why would that just be a one off, plus with all the games they still support like Sonic Dash and All Stars Racing transformed, Smash Bros coming out, and the extreme backlash they got with those cartoon redesigns in the first place, I just feel like it'd be incredibly stupid to redesign the cast. Maybe back in the day it made sense. Dreamcast was coming out, year 2000, time to be edgy. But now it's been 15 years since that redesign, compared to only 7 years where classic existed, and they slap modern's face on as much stuff as possible. What about the Macy's Thanksgiving Balloon? And the comic book. That just got a HUGGEEE reboot. You think they'd of insisted on Sonic Boom designs from the get go of that reboot. What would they do to explain that? Genesis Wave 3? Well that'd be kinda boring wouldn't it?

    I'm fine with keeping these redesigns cartoon centric, it might even work better. Just... it ain't broke. Don't fix it. Please. Please for the love of god don't do anything stupid. Plus, if it's too big of a change, I may just say fuck it I'm done. I've gone through too many roller coaster rides thanks to this series and I'm kind of tired of it. Part of me has been wanting to find a reason to ditch this series for years. So go ahead Sega. Ball's in your court.

    I'm hoping for some good fodder for Retro.txt, myself.

    That said, I'm ready, I'm willing. Give me what you've, got, SEGA. We'll see if I can choke it down.

    My body tensed up significantly after seeing that. Hoo boy. Don't know how to feel about this if it's as drastic as it looks to be. But I'll reserve judgement until it's unveiled.

    Now I know how you old guys felt when the Uekawa redesigns were about to drop.

    Tomorrow is going to be one of those days isn't it? Part of me wants to see the absolute worst that could happen in a potential "ruined forever" scenario. Prepping myself for the worst.

    Considering I'm one of those "old guys", I can't help but wonder that myself.

    Trapped in my own thoughts.
    Two stageplays, a screenplay, and an album
    I thought Nintendo was extending Year of Luigi. Sonic needs to wait his turn.

    Good thing this is going to go down when I'm out of class.

    Hopefully it's either good, or it's bad enough to quench my desire for absolute chaos (no pun even remotely intended).

    Either way, I'm betting we'll be seeing some retro_txt material in the next few days.

    I'm not gonna pretend to be an insider, because I'm not. Depending on when the news breaks though, I may not be around. Fuggin' school.

    My personal opinion on the matter? Based on the readiness of the sharks, I'm kinda concerned.

    Oh well, at least my signature is relevant now. :v:

    Edit: Wait fuck, no I'll be on my way to classes. I just saw the invite and it's New York. Gentlemen and ladies of the staff, I wish you the best of luck. :colbert:

    Oh shit, I'll be home so I'll be able to see what's up from the jump. I can't fucking wait!

    Man, I need popcorn for real now.

    Someone has to make a video compilation of all of this. I want to eat my popcorn after work and I don't want to fill my keyboard with crumbs.

    Still maybe we are being to pessimistic maybe, just maybe this might be good.
     
  20. Its amazing how complacent everyone has become when it involves Sonic announcements. So instead of having high expectations, lets just embrace the impending disaster and enjoy the ride that only the internet can provide. :v:
