Who is GemuBaka?

GemuBaka originated as the collaborative efforts of D.J. Tatsujin and MixMasterLar. The two authors became accquainted while working on projects through Rithum Interactive, including Rithum News, a video games-based Web site that covered video game news while producing original features and reviews on a daily basis. Although the site was scrapped in early 2008 in favor of a more ambitious project from the company, the two still saw potential in what they had to offer in their writings, forming GemuBaka nearly six months following the close of the site.

D.J. has been writing about video games for the past 15 years, being published and holding positions at sources such as Blogcritics.org and self-published materials before joining Rithum. Since then, he has spread out to work with sources such as Diehard GameFAN.com, J2Games, Video Game Collector Magazine, Arcade Heroes, Bemanistyle and more. He has been playing games actively since 1985 and has lightly dabbled into nearly every aspect of the video game industry, which includes app development, independent game conceptualization, journalism, public relations, marketing and more.

Outside the Internet, he has a bachelor’s degree in communications specializing in journalism from The University of Toledo. He also has a variety of associate degrees in the fields of accounting and marketing and has a certificate in Japanese proficiency. He has nearly 14 years of experience working on local newspapers, in writing, photography and design.

What does GemuBaka mean?

GemuBaka is a collection of works from the GemuBaka collaboration. The name is derived from the Japanese loan word for game as well as “baka,” which in one of its variants means “crazy.” In a literal sense, the phrase means “game crazy,” which would describe one who is crazy about games. Fortunately, that describes us perfectly. GemuBaka catalogs the works of the GB team and spans a wide range of video game topics to include features, previews, reviews, editorials, FAQs and more. In a perfect scenario, I would update the site at least once per week, but I usually get caught up in work and family matters. Still, I make an attempt to try to post two updates per month. While our works used to focus on a lot of current gaming, I have kind of stepped back from that and taken on a more “archive” role to try to fill in the blanks for games that do not have a lot of internet material available for them.

GemuBaka’s YouTube channel started in 2008, and is usually updated twice a week. D.J. casually streamed on Twitch for a few years, and that archive remains with around 100 hours of gameplay footage. He will one day return to live streaming when he feels the timing is right.
