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 […]

Getting our hands on a Vicious Circle cabinet!

GemuBaka readers likely know the website has become a bit of a source on Atari’s canceled arcade fighting game Vicious Circle, but I was recently able to take a big step forward on covering the game thanks to the game’s inclusion to the floor of Galloping Ghost Arcade.

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.

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 […]
