So it’s been awhile since I’ve had one of these “What’s Goin’ On” updates for Sega Does. As Sonic might say if he were giving birth, “I’m way past due!”
Most of you know that before I embraced Sega’s cold metallic bosom in the spring of 2014, I was ensconced in the NES library on Questicle.net. I reviewed every North American NES game, swore I’d make a book out of all my reviews, then let the site alone. But since the 30th anniversary of the NES is fast approaching (October 1985), what better time to dust off the site and release an all-encompassing book? Over the next couple of months, I’ll be hard at work getting my NES Compendium ready to go. I’ve been revising – and in some case, rewriting – every single one of my 754 NES reviews. This is good, great, fantastic! Unfortunately, since I have a limited amount of writing time throughout the week, I have to pull time from somewhere. That ‘somewhere’ is Sega Does. I’ll still be updating the site, just a bit less than usual. Expect 1-2 reviews a week for the next 2-3 months. The podcast should continue on as normal, but with fewer games to discuss, we might focus more on specific topics; Sega-related podcasts rather than strict game-by-game discussion. We shall see.
I’m not giving up Sega Does. I’ve thought about pulling the plug more than a few times, but I feel like I’m supposed to continue this blog, as if this is a part of my life’s work. I can’t explain this mystery and it sounds silly to me as I write it. Believe me, my life would be a lot easier if I didn’t have this burden of my own making on my shoulders. But I will continue. I have to. I can’t wait to have the NES book behind me, so I can focus exclusively on Sega. Until then, thanks for sticking with this crazy endeavor.
And hey, if you like Sega Does and want to see it continue on a more frequent basis, please consider contributing to my Patreon. My Patreon isn’t explicitly Sega Does related, as it covers all my writing. This blog is one of my main endeavors, though, and if I reach a certain amount of money, I will be able to – Lord willing – cut back on my day job and turn Sega Does into an every day or every other day type of review blog. I’d also love to incorporate videos along with these reviews, but one step at a time.
Thanks for understanding and for continuing to read my work. Y’all the best.
