Hello Sega friends. Please forgive the lack of posts as of late. Much has been happening behind the scenes, and it’s finally time to reveal what I’ve been working on.
First, Sega Does – the project where I review every game ever released on a Sega console – is now a part of my new venture, the Retro Gaming Archive.
The Retro Gaming Archive is a website dedicated to the exploration of all video games. These explorations will initially take place in the form of reviews and written features. As the Archive grows and expands, we will inevitably launch podcasts, stream, make videos, and produce more content. For now, reviews and features are our wheelhouse.
What does this mean for Sega Does?
Any new Sega Does posts will only be featured on the Retro Gaming Archive. That means this post – this one that I’m currently writing – will be the last new post on Sega Does for now.
SegaDoes.com will remain online for the foreseeable future. While I have moved all older reviews (including comments) over to the Archive, I haven’t moved the games lists yet. Those are important! I’m unsure how the games lists will be incorporated into the new site, but rest assured, they will eventually make the transition also.
Why move Sega Does to the Archive?
I love discovering old Sega games, hence Sega Does. I love writing about old Nintendo games, hence Questicle. But I also desire a place where all games, regardless of platform, can be discussed. It doesn’t feel right talking about a Neo*Geo game on Sega Does, and Nintendo fans would probably have my head if I discussed PS1 games on Questicle.
With the Archive, I can continue Sega Does, review any Nintendo games I want, talk about PS1 and PS2 all day, etc. In essence, the Archive gives me the freedom to talk about any games I want, without Questicle and Sega Does’ built-in limitations.
Also, from a logistical standpoint, having one site for all my content will be great, both for you as a reader and me as a producer.
I just want to read about old Sega games, not old Sony/Nintendo/whatever games. Why are you doing this to me?
I have good news for you! If you just want to read Sega Does content, visit the Retro Gaming Archive, click on ‘Sega Does’ at the top of the screen, and all you will see are my Sega Does posts.
I don’t currently have an e-mail subscription service yet on the Archive, but one should be up soon. If you subscribe to Sega Does via e-mail and would like your e-mail to be transitioned over to the Retro Gaming Archive, let me know in the comments section.
Finally, my latest Sega Does post “What’s Next! – March 1991” is currently up on the Retro Gaming Archive right now for your reading pleasure.
Ok, I think that’s it. If you have any other questions, please leave them in the comments and I will answer them. Otherwise, thanks for reading and I’ll see you over on the Archive!
