Greeting and salutations from the depths of my sleep-deprived mind!
I just wanted to give a brief update on some upcoming happenings and some already-happeneds around the site.
First off, as some of my more eagle-eyed readers may have noticed, I have taken down the Peripherals sections from below each system. Originally, I was going to write articles about every single worthwhile peripheral released for Sega’s systems; “worthwhile” meaning the peripheral was notable in some way i.e. the Dreamcast Keyboard for Typing of the Dead or the Master System’s 3-D glasses for Zaxxon 3-D (among others). But it all comes down to this: I want to devote more time to the games themselves and articles about the peripherals get in the way of that. Instead of full-fledged articles, I’ll be including information about specific peripherals into reviews of the games that use them. I doubt anyone really cares about this change, but I felt like it should be noted. First up: Hang-On II and the Bike Handle.
This brings me to my next subject: time, or lack thereof. I’m currently getting ready for a cross-country move at the end of September. The move is about three weeks away, which gives us time to prepare, but as it so happens, the company I work for is also undergoing a major transition of its own right this moment. As a result of my company’s transition, I’m working more hours, along with preparing for a humongous move at the same time. All this to say, the next month or two on Sega Does might be a bit lacking in content. God willing, the podcast will continue unabated (Podcast #10 is coming, hopefully by the end of this week), but reviews might decrease to about three or less a week until I get settled into a new town/new apartment/new job/new life – ETA mid-to-late October. Please understand.
Thanks for your continued readership. I’m really looking forward to digging into the Master System library with you all.
