Blog Update

The Year is 20XX and it is Time for Sega Does

How the time flies.

When I started Sega Does in 2014, the goal was simple, albeit ambitious: play every game ever released for a Sega console and discuss/review it here on this blog.

I knew this would take time – many, many years, even if I didn’t stop for breaks. What I didn’t anticipate was that I myself would stop and start this journey many times, over a period of years. I even shut the site down “for good” in March 2022.

Now, against all odds, Sega Does is online again. Not because I wanted it to be, but because someone brought it back to life for me (a story I’ll tell in detail at another time).

So, Sega Does is here and looking spiffier than ever, but a thought occurs: what is this blog’s purpose in 2023? Do I still want to play every game ever released for a Sega console? Does anyone still want to read about such a crazy endeavor?

I don’t know. But for the next three months, I’m going to play, discuss and review Sega games, like the old days. I can’t promise 2 or 3 reviews a week, necessarily, but I’m certainly going to be playing and writing in a greater capacity than I have in the last five years.

I have no expectations. In the next three months, I’ll discover if I still want to invest massive amounts of life and time into this blog. If people are here for that, great. If not, that’s ok too.

Should I decide to continue Sega Does beyond the next three months, I’ll share more plans I have for the site and myself at that time.

But if the next three months of writing proves that my interest in reviewing Sega games has waned for good, then I’ll leave the site be.

One thing is for sure, though: I won’t be shutting the site down again. At least not for the foreseeable future.

Any thoughts or feedback? Feel free to leave a comment, hit me up on Twitter or shoot me an email.

That’s it! Next review in chronological order is Warsong a.k.a. the first entry in the Langrisser series. I’ve heard this is a long, beefy game, so in the meantime, I’ll probably review some smaller games that came out around the same time.

See you then,

Hi Dylan.
Just checked back on the off site looking for an old SG-1000 review, thought the site was more archival now. Good to hear you are back for however long that may be.
Glad you can promise to keep the site alive as it has become a great resource for Sega reviews, rivalling Sega 16.

Sut! Awesome to hear from you. Yes, I’ve been enjoying playing/reviewing this latest run of games. I hope, at the end of three months, I feel like I can just keep going.
