If I were asked to describe Jaleco, I would define it as a company the on the edge of greatness. Their catalog is filled with titles that, while above average, didn't quite reach the same heights as their contemporaries. Released for the Famicom in 1992, Pizza Pop! places the player in the role of a pizza delivery boy who is trying to earn enough money to buy his girlfriend Betty a ring. As he pushes onward to his delivery, he has to deal with his rival, Nick and his army of minions.

Posted under Toaplan, PC Engine, Shooter, Horror Story

Toaplan was one of the most prolific developers of shoot em ups during the golden age. They endeared themselves to gamers by releasing titles such as Tiger-Heli, Twin Cobra, Hellfire, Truxton, and the infamous Zero Wing. Released in the arcades in 1989, Horror Story also known as Demon's World internationally is an auto-scrolling horizontal shooter where the player armed with what looks like a copy of a proton pack busts ghosts and other demons. Today we will be looking at the PC Engine port of Horror Story to determine if this game is an under appreciated gem or if it should stay buried.

Posted under Nintendo, New York, Store, Mario

I recently had the chance to travel to New York for work and I knew I wanted to visit Nintendo NY. Located in New York City in Rockefeller Center at 10 Rockefeller Plaza, the two-story, 10,000-square-foot store is a must stop for any Nintendo fan. I started my journey by mapping out the subway lines, and after getting lost a couple times, found the store.... ten minutes after they closed. I left disappointed, but I was not giving up. I made it back early the next day and would like to take you on a tour.

 Part of the intro

If you ask anyone to come up with a list of Genesis beat'em ups, I'm sure they would choose the Streets of Rage trilogy, Golden Axe, and Altered Beast.  These well-known titles helped define the the beat'em up genre, but there are several previously unknown Chinese titles that are just now coming to the West from publishers such as Super Fighter Team and Piko Interactive.  Yang Jia Jianghas or Yang Warrior Family is an unlicensed beat'em up based on Chinese folklore that is about a family of warriors who defend China from invaders, only to be sold out by their peers.  So is this import from the East worth adding to your collection?  Let's find out.

Thanks to Senseiman for the pic

At the start of the year, I made a decision to organize my collection. I have stacks of carts in moving boxes, shoe boxes, and every type of box in between. I needed to create a system that would make it easy to find the game I was looking for and provide a uniform look on a shelf. Ideally, I would buy the original boxes for all of my games, but the prices boxes go for these days make this a fiscal impossibility. So what options are out there for casing a collection? I started off looking at the way other collectors organize and case their games and found three popular methods:

Posted under Barcade, Pinball

This series will focus on visits to barcades, game stores, conventions, etc. and our first stop is Tokens & Tankards. Nestled within downtown Mount Prospect, Illinois (18 W. Busse Ave) in what used to be an old pizza parlor, Tokens & Tankards provides a spin on the classic barcade as they offer up classic British and Belgian pub plates paired with local craft beers.
