Late Night Poll: Talkin’ ‘Bout My Generations

Today, (April 7th) at 9 AM Eastern on the Sonic Facebook page, there will be a “huge announcement.” I’m sure some of you will stay up all night brimming with anticipation.  Most of us jaded bastards will go to sleep and not give a damn or will stay up all night playing Minecraft and ROM hacking as usual.  I, personally, will be working on my fanmade script for a sequel to You, Me and Dupree, called You, Me and TWOpree: Dupree-ier.

Real Talk: You’re In Our Thoughts, Japan

Unless you’re a hermit who has not heard the latest news, Japan got rocked pretty badly by a magnitude 8.9 earthquake and a devastating tsunami.

While we may not have many active Japanese users around here, it’s no secret that both Sonic Retro and Sega Retro are both centric around products from the nation and a lot of the user base follows some aspect of the culture. Our hearts and prayers are with the people of Japan that they can overcome this tragedy.

We hope those of you with friends over there find that they’re okay.
