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 […]

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 […]

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.

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.

Opening Nintendo Stickers from 1989

My wife and I attended the 2009 VGXPO event in Philadelphia, and, at the event we purchased a copy of the Nintendo DS game Sangokushi Taisen.

For those unaware, Bill Kunkel is considered the “grandfather of video game journalism,” launching “Arcade […]

Event report: StarFight 21

Thankfully COVID didn’t completely ruin the momentum of the local Game Con event, as most of that group was able to move on and produce StarFight 21. This event focused solely on providing a Super Smash Bros. Ultimate tournament, but it was able to garner decent traction thanks to its sponsors. The support allowed 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 […]

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 […]

Exergaming Journal #1: Starting the Journey

I generally spend most of my time these days playing games from previous systems – on top of copious amounts of arcade gaming – but the pandemic has seen me shift a little more toward current games. I’m sitting on a backlog of games I’ve purchased for the Nintendo Switch and Playstation 4 over the […]
