GemuBaka turns 14!

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. In that year, I had the thought, “GemuBaka might be hitting its 10th anniversary.” Silly me. I had to […]

Arcade Games, WrestleMania, Chocobos and Sonic!

It’s been a bit since the previous site update, but that time has been filled with a couple of trips. Plus, work has been catching up to me for the season. Since I have a media job where I write stories for a publication, writing features and articles outside of that scope hasn’t exactly sounded […]

Exergaming Journal #8: First major goal reached!

In all honesty, my exergaming for February was minimal when compared to other months, but the month still brought some very good news – I managed to meet my initial weight loss goal! It was mid-March in 2021 that I began this journey and the GemuBaka journals that accompanied it, and, within one year, I […]

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 […]

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 […]

Playing SEGA’s Burning Rival (arcade)

One of my favorite things about Twitch is in being able to see people from Asia stream an assortment of odd video games I may not ever know about otherwise. Xelloss09 frequently streamed 1CC attempts of a number of arcade games, and some of these were so obscure, I hadn’t heard of them and very […]

Exergaming Journal #5: StepManiaX!

My personal exergaming journey began in mid-March, and this is has taken me to multiple games that include Ring Fit Adventure, Fitness Boxing 2 and Pump It Up XX. This has also led to a growing interest in other games that may help me keep active, including future titles such as XSEED Games’ Knockout Home […]

Exergaming Journal #4: Pump It Up

The last time I wrote about my exergaming exploits, I noted I was wanting something more than partaking in the same cycle of Ring Fit Adventure and Fitness Boxing. While both are excellent products, I was yearning for something different after a rotation of those two games over a period of two-plus months. I noted […]

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 […]

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 […]
