On December 12th, 2008 I posted the first article for The Nomad Junkyard (I missed it by ten days, but I'm remembering it nonetheless). Much has changed since TNJ debuted; visits have quintupled, I've been invited to write for Sega Memories, The Saturn 'Yard and The Dreamcast 'Yard and thanks to my spending addiction my Sega collection has nearly doubled!
A special thanks to all the readers, I'm excited to see what the second year of portable Sega gaming coverage will bring.
As a special holiday gift, here's a Sega holiday recipe:
Ice Cap Night Cap
1 Genesis or Mega Drive handheld
1 Sonic 3 Cartridge
6 oz Eggnog
2 oz Spiced Rum
Mix the rum and eggnog in a medium glass and sprinkle nutmeg on top. Insert the Sonic 3 cartridge into the handheld and plug in and put on headphones. Boot up game. After Sega logo appears, press Up(x2), Down(x2), and Up(x4). The sound of a ring will confirm correct code entry. Hold A and press Start to enter the level select menu. Select Act 1 of Ice Cap Zone. Enjoy!
