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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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, […]

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 […]

A March visit to Level 419

Just before the social distancing mandates set in, I was able to take in a fresh visit to Level 419 arcade in Northwood, Ohio, which allowed me to gather more media and get my hands on a few more rhythm game titles that are new to the area. First up is an updated walkthrough of […]
