SEGA’s Mission: Impossible Arcade

My arcade travels still bring me to my favorites – the rhythm games and fighting games – but along with those, two other staple genres continue to pop up in current arcades: the driving and light gun games. For the latter, I’ve spent some time on GemuBaka looking over Elevator Action Invasion and Time Crisis […]

Randomly thinking about Holosseum

On my days off work I tend to poke through some of my old media to generate content ideas, and today’s walk back through time led me to SEGA’s Holosseum. SEGA released two holographic arcade games: Time Traveler in 1991, and then Holosseum in 1992. These cabinets are perhaps the most 1990s thing ever – […]

The soft return to live streaming

I’ve lightly explained a few times that my live streaming on Twitch had gone on hiatus, and that lasted for nearly three years. After much preparation, live streaming resumed at the very beginning of August, and there is now a rough two months of part-time streaming content highlighted on the channel. Much like doing the […]

Recent Arcade Adventures

In a complete reverse of last year, it’s looking like fall has put me on the road more than the summer months. The past couple of months have put us at arcades in Illinois, Michigan and Ohio, and if a November trip pans out, I’ll add Indiana to that list. August allowed us another trip […]

The ‘Third’ Dynamite Deka Game: EX

Dynamite Deka popularly filled in a beat ’em up void when the genre became a little less prominent by 1996. 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. The game was introduced as the 850th […]

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 […]

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 […]
