Good morrow, friends!
Spring arrived about a week ago, which means my quarterly Sega Does update is fashionably late as usual.
I’ve been working behind the scenes to improve the look of the blog. Some of you may have noticed more obvious changes, like the front page no longer featuring the full review and header images in more recent reviews. Expect more changes in the coming weeks. I’m really trying to make the site as user-friendly as possible.
More good news: all the games lists are finally live! The Dreamcast lists were completed a couple weeks ago. That means all the games I (or a guest author) will ever play and review are currently on the site. Only took three years! Yeesh.
While I wish I was done with the games lists, I’m currently moving backwards and revising the lists to feature both the game name and the date of release. Take Saturn – 1996, for example. The date is listed first – 01/20/96 – followed by the game. Not all the lists are complete in this manner yet, but I’m hoping to have most, if not all of them, complete by the end of April.
Gotta go f- ah, forget it.
I’m also going to be making alphabetical lists for all systems. This is something that I’ve had requests for since the beginning of the site, but I’ve held off because of the site’s chronological leanings. As I progress further into the quest, however, I realize that people generally only respond to games they have a connection with. Why make it difficult for people to find a review, particularly if they have no real interest in the Sega quest as a whole?
I’ve reorganized the Patreon a bit. The reward tiers are the same, though the goals have been altered slightly. If I’m going to expand the site in the ways I’d like to – streaming, books, etc. – I’m going to need more income. I’ll likely be adding a PayPal button soon, a one-time donation sort-of thing, in case people would like to support the blog outside of a monthly contribution. If y’all have any other ideas on how the site can pull in additional funds, let me know in the comments.
That should do it for now. As always, thanks so much for hanging out while I talk about old Sega games.
