Blog-keeping and a small update

In a long overdue bit of blog-keeping, I have gone through Very Very Gaming’s wacky archives and tagged each and every post (podcasts excepted) with “written by Adrian” or “written by Maya”, or in a few rare cases, both! Now you can know who wrote which post, past and present! This is something we’ve wanted to do since the very beginning of the blog, but we were too uncreative to think of an elegant way to indicate who wrote what. Big thanks to geozeldadude for his feedback which prompted us to re-think the issue. Certainly, dual or multiple authors can work well on WordPress – see our blog buddies over at A Most Agreeable Pastime and United We Game for good collaborative blogs in action – but it didn’t seem appropriate for the way we work here, for various reasons.

For one, every post on this site is a collaboration between Maya and myself to varying degrees. We proof-read, make edits and offer suggestions on each other’s posts. There are posts that are written from my point of view, when in fact Maya did most of the work, and vice versa. That happens sometimes when one of us has an initial idea but gives up or neglects it, and the other person will pick it up and finish it. For simplicity’s sake, I just followed the post’s “perspective” when doing the tags.

And, for this reason, while it’s tempting to count the archived posts and declare myself the CHAMPION FOR ALL-TIME for most posts authored… it doesn’t even begin to do justice to the reality of our blogging endeavour.

Saving these gifs for another time… unfortunately

Speaking of winning, there was a cool thing that came up recently. Retro Gamer, a print magazine based here in the UK, cribbed a Sexy Parodius screenshot from none other than Very Very Gaming for a recent feature on Sega Saturn shmups. Talk about gratifying!

I could kick up a stink perhaps about not being consulted… but anything that spreads the joy that is Sexy Parodius is alright in my books.

    Seems like this is a very collaborative blog if both writers have so much input in each post and the one writer can complete posts written by the other. Congratulations on slightly being printed in a magazine.
    Where do you get the pictures from? Do you capture them yourself while playing the games?

    Congratulations and I am happy that you were able to filter your posts! I have to start the haul soon as I’ve picked a new theme and now I need to categorize the posts a certain way, but it shouldn’t take too long. Have a great Monday!
