The devs make me so MAD!
 
*Note: This was an April Fool's post. Please don't take it seriously.

Alright, here's the deal. I've been a member of the dev team for a good while now. To tell you the truth, I've actually been silent over there as of late. I've expressed my discontent over the SRB2 project several times, but that's not what's important. I'll tell you what's important.

You see, the devs have been discussing some dramatic and sweeping changes behind the iron curtain they call the dev channel. If you thought SRB2 was about staying true to the classics, you thought wrong. You see, they are planning on introducing a change so controversial that it would likely shatter any hope that this project would ever become something worthy of great respect.

It's all in the character design. They want to alter Sonic. Make his eyes GREEN.

I know what you're thinking. You're probably just as shocked as I was when I first discovered this. I felt I had no choice but to inform the players of SRB2 before it was too late, before the community would explode and be left in shambles.

Want proof? I have proof:

[13:12:13] <Sonict> Man, that is pretty weird.
[13:12:19] <Sonict> I'll have to ask Mystic next time he comes in.

[21:47:14] <Mystic> We've discussed this many times before. We're not budging on the matter.
[21:47:25] <Mystic> You know just as well as I do that SRB2 has long needed an overhaul such as this one.
[21:47:32] <Mystic> Our userbase _hates_ change, even if it's for the better.
[21:47:37] <Mystic> Remember the board upgrade? ^_~
[21:51:56] <Alam_Squeeze> DOOM! KEEN! GREEN!
This is starting to annoy me to no end. I can't believe that the dev team for a fangame like this one would completely sell out to the recent trends in video games. I mean, God! Everyone has freaking colored eyes now! They made Yoshi's eyes bluish-purple! Why?! It doesn't even make sense, and it makes the characters look horrible now! I thought the devs had at least _some_ sensibility.

Well, that does it. I'm finally moving on. I don't care for you guys anymore because this incident was the last straw.

cool story bro

Rob 04-01-2010 05:35 AM

While I agree with Foxblitzz, I'm not about to quit over it. Still, this is a completely stupid move.
This is supposed to be classic Sonic. Green eyes is ridiculous to no end. We've been doing fine with the normal color, and it makes no sense to just up-and-out change the color to green. We may as well just start using Sonic Adventure style art too. :/

Wow.

What to say, what to say..uh, I'm speechless.

Bawww green eyes

MascaraSnake 04-01-2010 06:09 AM

I especially like Alam_Squeeze's response. It's hilarious. Also, green eyes = end of the world.

Elk 04-01-2010 06:12 AM

=)!
This is how Sega started losing money, adding weird gimmick's.

ZeldaGamer00 04-01-2010 06:17 AM

I HAVE green eyes, so I declare this topic demeaning towards Green Eyed People! http://forums.sonicretro.org/style_e.../specialed.png

Please don't hurt me D:

ashtheman14 04-01-2010 06:30 AM

lol no, it's not.
But green eyes for sonic = srb2 theme snaps in two
Translation: Why the green eyes why?!

Blade 04-01-2010 06:34 AM

Green eyes? I thought we desided on GUMBALL EYES! D:

CoatRack 04-01-2010 07:27 AM

Blade, Gumball eyes was for Super Sonic. :<

yoshibot 04-01-2010 07:38 AM

Oh my god! Green eyes?! / Such a travesty won't stand / before our nerd rage!

Zap610 04-01-2010 07:41 AM

This is an outrage, I am going to quit and never return! Surely this will cause the devs to change their mind about making a slight, hardly noticeable edit.

Cue 04-01-2010 08:49 AM

The hell? I didn't even know about this, but God dammit, who the hell recoloured those eyes? It goes against everything we stand for!

Violo 04-01-2010 09:31 AM

This is such an April Fool's joke. I may rather the green eyes for Sonic, but it doesn't fit SRB2's style.

I mean, why would an administrator just have an outburst like this and releasing very confidential information on the upcoming SRB2 and still be admin when Cue, another admin, has also posted agreeing? Sorry, but this is just wrong to me. What kind of April Fool's is this?

Except for the people who wants to read everything (Fine, me). Okay, seriously? Green eyes? I don't really know what to say on that. Except for the life icon looks weird with those eyes.

Dr Ivo Robotnik 04-01-2010 10:22 AM

This is an outrage!

My badniks are designed to detect and attack the many furry animals that assault my bases through a process of facial recognition scanning. By changing the color of their eyes, my robots will not be able to target Sonic, Tails, Knuckles or the many strange recolors that appear during what I hear as being "coop netgames".

Actually, on the topic of Tails and Knuckles. If their eyes have been changed as well, the entire plan has been ruined and the Eggrock is a sitting duck, waiting to be invaded. While most of you are complaining on the basis of a visual overhaul, I have a legitimate complaint about the practicality of the new design. This change must be reverted to normal, lest my entire doomsday plan will be ruined.

Sonic Team Junior. I am disappoint.
