Event report: RPW & Flophouse Wrestling!

July brought us another Ruthless Pro Wrestling show, but this time, the organization joined with Flophouse Wrestling to provide a double bill out of Indianapolis, Indiana. With two cards put together by the companies, the day featured eight hours of professional wrestling at one, single ticket price. I try to take quick clips of the […]

Exercising Journal #3: Looking for Some Variety

It’s been some time since the last journal, but, with summer activities and holidays in full swing, my exercising has fallen a little by the wayside. I haven’t completely dumped it, though, but I think my exergaming habits are going to be changing a little. I have kept up with Fitness Boxing and Ring Fit […]

The recorded no-rounds-lost play of Ring of Destruction (Super Muscle Bomber)

I first discovered there was a sequel to Capcom’s Saturday Night Slam Masters just into my first year of college. I stumbled upon it looking through arcade ROMS, as I wouldn’t be able to put my hands on a real-deal arcade cabinet of the game until 2017 when it was added to Galloping Ghost Arcade’s […]

Event report: RPW’s Ruthless Consequences

Ruthless Pro Wrestling (RPW) held its Ruthless Consequences event May 29, 2021, in Erie, Michigan, and having attended the previous three live events, I wasn’t going to skip out on another chance to catch live pro wrestling about as close as it gets to me. While I mostly write about video games on GemuBaka, pro […]

An updated stroll through Galloping Ghost Arcade

I managed to record a decent chunk of footage during my recent visit to Galloping Ghost Arcade, and this included a “quick” tour through the multiple rooms at the location. I say “quick” because, with 800 games, this still results in half an hour of footage as I merely walk by and announce the titles […]

We originally met through playing DanceDanceRevolution, but there were other games we started playing together as well: Donkey Konga 3, The Urbz, Monster Hunter, Capcom Vs. SNK 2 […]

Retro Achiever Game #57: Tetris Battle Gaiden

My second subscriber special on Twitch brought me a Retro Achiever challenge that represented both the familiar and the unfamiliar. The game chosen was Tetris Battle Gaiden for Super Famicom – it’s obviously a Tetris game, but the battle format shook up the rules. Tetris Battle Gaiden released only in Japan, developed by Bullet Proof […]

Exergaming Journal #2: First milestone in sight

Not much has changed in the past few weeks, but I’ve remained consistent with the plan I put into place for myself. As a result, I am on the cusp of reaching my first milestone at nearly 25 pounds lost since mid-March. To recap from the first entry of the Exergaming journal, I finally decided […]

The appeal of Jaleco’s Arm Champs II

Back in 2019 I did a livestream from Galloping Ghost Arcade in Brookfield, Illinois, and the highlight of this was playing a session of Jaleco’s Arm Champs II. I made a Twitch clip of me playing this game on the highest difficulty you can select in-game, and this has sat on my Twitch channel since […]

Sampling the AntStream Arcade service

Just as digital purchases have muscled into the gaming scene, it’s an upcoming inevitability that cloud- or streaming-based gaming delivery will continue to slide onto the table. In a previous games writing endeavor, I had unlimited access to the digital landscape of GameTap – a service hosted online by Turner Broadcasting System (which explained why […]
