Gotta go to work.
I gotta be real with y’all. I was excited to jump back into Sega Does, thus my hasty “Sega Does is Back!” proclamation, but… it’s not quite time to return yet.
“And why?” they asked.
The NES book is my first priority. I’ve been trying to push that thing out since early 2016. We’re in the second half of 2017, it finally has a tentative timeframe for release, and I have to see it through. I’ll be putting out more updates for it as the book gets closer to completion, both on Questicle and Sega Does.
I also feel like now is a time for behind-the-scenes work. I’ve wanted to build a post-2000 Nintendo handheld review blog (GBA, DS) and an early Sony console (PS1, PS2, PSP) review blog for the last couple of years, but I never felt like I could just stop or even slow down Sega Does to work on them. Now that I have, I realize taking a break is not the end of the world, and my desire to invest time and effort into these blogs has increased.
I will eventually be putting all these blogs – Questicle, Sega Does, Nintendo handheld, Sony, etc. – under one giant hub website. I have a sweet domain name picked out and everything, but it’s still in the planning stages, so I don’t have a lot of information to share yet.
While I’m constructing these sites, I also need to prepare myself for when Sega Does eventually returns. This means: buying systems I don’t have, modding them to play Japanese/European titles, stocking up on games, etc.
On top of all this, my personal life has gotten increasingly busier since the start of the year, and I don’t see it slowing down any time soon. Growing older, responsibilities, and all that.
I’m sorry I published the last post and got peoples’ hopes up. I feel like a boob for getting ahead of myself, especially since I was excited to jump back into the Sega fray with y’all. I’m sure some of you saw a larger break coming, but I promise I’m not going away for good. I’ll be posting updates about future projects on Sega Does and Questicle, so you can stay in the loop.
Thanks, as always, for your support throughout the years and years. I can’t believe I’ve been reviewing games for seven years now. That’s a long time, but as a sage once uttered, “Can’t stop, won’t stop.”
Talk to y’all soon.
