A Sudden Turn of Events!


Good morrow, Sega friends!

A new month is upon us, and with it comes a massive change in my life. For the next couple of months and possibly longer, I will be working with my dad. Since I live in Austin and he lives in New Orleans, I’ll be commuting back and forth every few days or so. Five days on, five days off, something of that nature.


This is a huge deal to me. My dad and I haven’t been that close for most of my life, due to his job and various life circumstances. I’ve always wanted to be closer to him, but never knew how to go about it. And, if I’m honest, he never really seemed all that interested. Recently, though, he retired and expressed a desire to work on some projects together. Both to make money and to get to know each other better. I of course said yes. Given our history, I’d be foolish not to take this opportunity.


I’m excited for this time, but I’ll be honest: this job will eat into time spent on Sega Does. I’d like to say I’ll be able to work with my dad all day, then play games and write at night, but that may not always be the case. On my days off in Austin, however, I will be writing, so the site will not become dormant or shut down. Though it probably doesn’t seem like it at times, I’m committed to Sega Does for the long term.


I want to thank Taylor Pinson for his LaserActive reviews. I know I’m going out of chronological order by posting them now, but I was never going to cover the LaserActive in the first place. As such, I see them as a welcome change of pace from my somewhat rigid  structure.


There will be more LaserActive reviews in the near future, but for now, I’ll be returning to Genesis/Master System reviews. We’ve got some biggies coming up, including Phantasy Star III. Pray for me!


Thank you – yes, YOU – for continuing to stick with the site. Sega Does is only a little over two years old and it’s gone through significant ups and downs. Extended breaks, on-again-off-again podcasts, etc. I couldn’t do it without your encouragement and support. Y’all the best!

  1. I hope this results in some good father/son bonding and more importantly, FAT STACKINGS OF THE CASH!

  2. Congratulations on reconnecting with your pops. I don’t have to personally know you to understand and appreciate what that can do for your soul. Good luck!

  3. That’s excellent Dylan. I hope it all goes really well. Don’t be discouraged if there are some initial teething issues – sounds like this reconciliation/connection is a long time coming and it might not make a linear progression. Congratulations on this huge step though – sounds fantastic!

  4. Awesome that you’re going to be able to reconnect with your dad! Definitely take the opportunity to do that, and don’t worry about us, we’ll be here. Family is more important, especially estranged family that are reaching out.
