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 […]

Preview: Mega Man The Sequel Wars

Mega Man has always been one of my favorite video game series, so I like to check out fan projects based on the series every now and again. One of the more recent projects showing promise is Mega Man The Sequel Wars – a project that aims to take Mega Man 4-6 and port them […]

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 […]

Other April Fool’s Fun

Given the current situation in 2020, April Fool’s Day didn’t need to feature cruel jokes, but it certainly seemed like a day to make obvious gags to try and make people laugh – if even for a moment. The biggest effort came in the form of a collaboration with Zool, along with others with a […]

Trocadero SEGAWorld London

You know those embarrassing situations where your parents pull out the old photo binders to show other people? Well, that recently worked in my favor for once. On a recent visit to my parents’, my mother leafed through a binder I had chronicling high school, and, low and behold, I had preserved a 1997 printing […]

Retro Achiever Game #54: TMNT Hyperstone Heist

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were a huge part of the arcade scene as calendars flipped over into the 1990s, and I’ve detailed before how important Konami’s 1989 release of TMNT was to me. We later received a version of the game on the Nintendo Entertainment System, but the smashed-down product into an 8-bit cart […]

The Curious Case of Castle of Illusion Scoring

I’ve participated in the RGB (@RetroGameBrews) High Score program on Twitter for the past couple of years, and, entering season 3, we’re tackling a lineup of SEGA Genesis game titles. The RGBHighScore series features 10 games (season one was NES, season two was SNES), which award points to qualify for an end-of-season tournament/elimination round. Season […]
