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 […]

Exergaming journal #7: Knockout Home Fitness

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. I’m guessing it’s mostly because the majority of the systems released after I started driving around and having jobs, but it actually wasn’t until the mid- to late-2000s that I […]

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 […]

Retro Achiever Game #58: The Adventures of Batman & Robin (Genesis)

Getting back to my long overdue Retro Achiever series updates, game number 58 is one I’ve wanted to get on GemuBaka for a long time – the Clockwork Tortoise-developed and SEGA-published The Adventures of Batman & Robin for the SEGA Genesis/Mega Drive. It’s a game that released so low-key and was often ignored in 1995, […]

The enduring aesthetic of SVC Chaos

Capcom Vs. SNK gets a lot of love, so it’s easy for Playmore’s title-flipping effort SNK Vs. Capcom – SVC Chaos to get lost in the fighting game shuffle. Chaos can’t compare in quality – I’m actually a huge fan of the first Capcom Vs. SNK game and would say it does a couple of […]

‘Fear Has an Address’ – The 1997 release of Castlevania: Symphony of the Night

Nearly 25 years later, Konami’s Castlevania: Symphony of the Night is billed as one of the quintessential classics of the Playstation One library. Personally, Mega Man 2 is the only game in existence that holds more favor to me than SotN. Recently, I was able to take in a little bit of media from when […]

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 […]
