Quick thoughts on Time Crisis 5 [Arcade]

While I was at Dave & Busters on New Year’s Day to get in a session of Pump It Up XX, there didn’t seem to be any new games on the floor since the release of Elevator Action Invasion. Walking around the collection of games I realized there was something in the mix that I’ve […]

It’s a new year, and with the new year comes resolutions. At least in the United States, the number-one resolution made by people is based on fitness/weight loss. While I set my goal last year, the new year brings a wave of people getting excited about fitness, and this energy encourages others to do the […]

Wrapping up 2021 for GemuBaka

I mostly went off the radar in December, which was the result of a chest cold I had followed with spending time with family for the holidays. I really wanted to scratch a few more projects off the list, but it wasn’t in the cards for me. Still, 2021 was a strong year for GemuBaka, […]

Event report: RPW Boiling Point 2

Ruthless Pro Wrestling was able to host one more professional wrestling event for 2021, and we were able to attend the matches held in Maybee, Michigan. We were unable to make the Bumps in the Night and Inked in Blood events, so it was nice to be back after an absence at those events. If […]

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.

Exergaming Journal #6: The Ring Fit 14-Day Challenge!

The fitness gaming drive continues! I recently made a switch to heavily focusing on arcade dancing games, but I was recently tagged by Twitter user Super Jude to participate in a 14-day Ring Fit Adventure challenge: Play the game some way over 14-straight days. I finally found a good stretch of time to do this […]

The Zero Hour Game Challenge

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 […]

Opening Nintendo Stickers from 1989

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 […]
