The recorded no-rounds-lost play of Ring of Destruction (Super Muscle Bomber)

I first discovered there was a sequel to Capcom’s Saturday Night Slam Masters just into my first year of college. I stumbled upon it looking through arcade ROMS, as I wouldn’t be able to put my hands on a real-deal arcade cabinet of the game until 2017 when it was added to Galloping Ghost Arcade’s […]

An updated stroll through Galloping Ghost Arcade

I managed to record a decent chunk of footage during my recent visit to Galloping Ghost Arcade, and this included a “quick” tour through the multiple rooms at the location. I say “quick” because, with 800 games, this still results in half an hour of footage as I merely walk by and announce the titles […]

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 […]

April Fools: The Return of Neco Drop!

It’s unfortunate I didn’t have the energy for April Fools Day this year, as the day does the potential to be a lot of fun in making obvious jokes. It also didn’t help that I really don’t think I’ll be able to top last year’s April Fools Day output! Still, I was able to enjoy […]

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 […]

Rounding up retail clearance games

My new game backlog is so intense at this point, I find it difficult to add to my Switch/PS4 collections until an outlet comes along providing these games at a great discount. When I take stock of my shelves, I’m realizing my backlog mostly consists of anything I’ve purchased in the past two years. The […]

First thoughts on Balan Wonderworld (PS4, demo)

Balan Wonderworld received a demo for each available format, and being intrigued by the stylings of Yuji Naka and Naoto Oshima of the Balan Company, I figured I would give the trial a spin. Based solely on the announcement trailer that debuted the game to the public, I was expecting way more Nights Into Dreams […]

Opening an imported PS2 game shipment

Right after the holiday, I placed an import game order with Genki Video Games – a fantastic source of Japanese video games. In a recent browsing of the company’s wares, I found an item that was long overdue for my collection. As a huge fan of Bust a Groove/Bust a Move, my collection had gone […]

The best of GemuBaka in 2020

With how 2020 ultimately went down, I was torn on whether or not I wanted to bother with a “best of 2020” Twitter content wrapup, similar to what I did last year. However, in checking the analytics, I saw the year had a decent spread of content from some pretty obscure games. As expected, eight […]

A slice of normal: Game shops in 2020

The year 2020 nixed all of my efforts to attend gaming events and go to arcades, but the one activity that still persevered in a limited capacity was being able to travel to area shops to look for retro goods. I only visited these areas when something else was scheduled, such as medical appointments for […]
