Arriving late to #VitaIsland

Outside of the original Game Boy, I actually haven’t been very engrossed in the lineup of portable gaming systems that have launched over the years. I’m guessing it’s mostly because the majority of the systems released after I started driving around and having jobs, but it actually wasn’t until the mid- to late-2000s that I […]

Event report: Cleveland Gaming Classic

We attended the Classic Consoles and Arcade Gaming (CCAG) event in the Cleveland area in July, so I was pleased to find the Cleveland Gaming Classic being held in that same area. These events are just under two hours away from me, making them great day-trip events full of gaming. While CCAG is largely a […]

In the time-honored tradition of doing something “productive” in the hour reset for Daylight Saving Time, this year I attempted to speedrun through eight video game categories in less than one hour. I did a recording of this, which is the closest I’ve come to actually streaming in a long time. The full rundown of […]

My wife and I attended the 2009 VGXPO event in Philadelphia, and, at the event we purchased a copy of the Nintendo DS game Sangokushi Taisen. We very much enjoyed this arcade game by SEGA in which you collect cards that place characters onto a field for strategic battles, and jumped at the chance to […]

LRG’s Undercover Cops (SNES) Collector’s Edition unboxing

Earlier this year I placed an order for the collector’s edition of Undercover Cops from Limited Run Games. The item was in production for more than six months, and I kind of forgot I had ordered the item until I recently received a shipping notice. The package arrived Monday, and I spent a little bit […]

Retro Achiever Game #58: The Adventures of Batman & Robin (Genesis)

Getting back to my long overdue Retro Achiever series updates, game number 58 is one I’ve wanted to get on GemuBaka for a long time – the Clockwork Tortoise-developed and SEGA-published The Adventures of Batman & Robin for the SEGA Genesis/Mega Drive. It’s a game that released so low-key and was often ignored in 1995, […]

The enduring aesthetic of SVC Chaos

Capcom Vs. SNK gets a lot of love, so it’s easy for Playmore’s title-flipping effort SNK Vs. Capcom – SVC Chaos to get lost in the fighting game shuffle. Chaos can’t compare in quality – I’m actually a huge fan of the first Capcom Vs. SNK game and would say it does a couple of […]

‘Fear Has an Address’ – The 1997 release of Castlevania: Symphony of the Night

Nearly 25 years later, Konami’s Castlevania: Symphony of the Night is billed as one of the quintessential classics of the Playstation One library. Personally, Mega Man 2 is the only game in existence that holds more favor to me than SotN. Recently, I was able to take in a little bit of media from when […]
