Let’s Try This Again

 

Gotta go to work.

 

Oy.

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 ā€“ 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.

  1. Good luck with those other blogs Dylan. Will you cross-post links to them on Sega Does when they first start? Wouldn’t want to miss out. šŸ™‚

    An early recommendation for an obscure DS game that you might otherwise miss: Puzzle Expedition. It’s a tough little platform puzzler that gets hardly any attention. Not sure off hand when it was released, so it might be a while before you get to it. It’s a satisfying game.

    • Hey Rom, I appreciate the well wishes. I hadn’t thought of cross-posting, but that’s a great idea, I will do that.

      Puzzle Expedition, huh? I will keep an eye out for it! And if you think of any other recommendations, let me know!

  2. Don’t worry about it Dylan – it’s easy to get carried away, important thing is you stopped before you went too deep into the rabbit hole šŸ˜€ take your time and don’t worry – it’s a tough task you’ve got ahead of you.

    I like the idea of one big hub site – as you said, seven years of reviews is a lot, so it will be good to keep them in one place.

    As always, if I can help, let me know.

  3. Don’t feel too bad about spilling the beans early. I did the same thing with my YouTube channel at the beginning of the year, announcing a project I would hopefully be working on throughout the year, then the year quickly got away from me before I knew it, and suddenly, months had gone by. Between personal stuff getting in the way, too much Breath of the Wild, and work, that goal fell quickly by the wayside. Just keep plugging away, and know that those of us invested in your writing will be here when you’re ready to keep going šŸ™‚
