More commonly known for its Die Hard Arcade name in the United States, the game was a spotlight STV hardware title (the arcade’s SEGA Saturn equivalent) and used three buttons to craft movesets akin to […]

The return of wrestling Toledo can call its own

You may have noticed that I occasionally dabble in recognizing professional wrestling on GemuBaka, and there is a simple reason for that: Video games are my number-one passion, and pro wrestling follows close behind as number two.

Put 14 candles on the birthday cake, because GemuBaka just turned 14 years old! The GemuBaka timeline has been something that never really crossed my mind until all of the frequent updating I did in 2020.

The Best of GemuBaka in 2021

Another year, another GemuBaka “best of” wrap-up! What makes 2021 a more interesting year was the fact I let up on the Twitter posting a little more and put more focus into content creation between this website and more full-featured videos. Looking at the Twitter figures, 2021’s top content lacked the diversity seen in previous […]

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 […]
