Welcome to Episode 007 of Shoot the Core-cast! For December 2018, we decided to do a little something different. Instead of looking at a single game, we took 2 classics head-to-head, to decide which one is the superior proto-shmup on the Atari 2600: Imagic's Demon Attack, and Activision's Spider Fighter. Which game proved to be the bigger hit with the Shmup Club? Have a listen to the podcast, and hear what we had to say. Don't agree? Leave us a comment, or better yet, play the games for yourself, and decide!

Posted under review, psvr


I recently acquired a massive Playstation VR package in a mammoth trade with our very own Disposed Hero. You may recall from our podcast my initial excitement at PSVR being announced and my further excitement after actually trying it out at a friend's house. The steep cost of the add-on kept me from procuring one earlier, as did some apprehension about playing games in VR for prolonged periods of time. Would VR games just be gimmicky, short experiences, leaving me in a situation where I wouldn't feel like mustering the energy to set up and put the helmet on every time I want to play it? Or, is it possible to take deep, lengthy dives into more meaningful experiences like the ones I cherish on conventional platforms like televisions or handheld devices?

Texas hold em is one of the most popular and exciting poker games available. Learning how to play the game is not only easy but fun. The first thing you need to do when starting a new game of Texas hold em is to space out each player to ensure there is enough elbow space for each player to play comfortably. Ideally, this space should preferably be enough for a player to place his drink or grub.

Getting Started
Start by shuffling the deck and place two of the decks aside to be used later. Also have with you buttons to show who is the dealer, the Big blind and, the Little blind. The two players forced to bet are known as the Big Blind and the Little blind. Just before you start the game two players must be chosen as the Big blind and the Little blind. In a mandatory 2/4 game the Little blind will be forced to bet $2 while the Big blind bets $4. In both cases the dollars are fake, often fake money chips.

The game starts when the Little blind and the Big blind have placed their casino mate online casino bets. Starting with the player on the left, the dealer passes two cards face down to the two players. He then deals himself two cards if he is also playing. After dealing everyone their cards, one more card is placed in front of each player lying face down. The game is now underway.

First Round of Betting
In the first round the players make a match, fold or raise the Big blinds bet. Betting starts from the left hand of the Big blind. If a players cards are good, they stay and match by adding $4 for a 2/4 blind. However, if the players cards are really good they can raise the stakes and bet more than $4. You can, however, make this bet as a bluff depending on your game strategy. When it is the Little blinds turn he either matches the highest bet on the table or folds. If he folds he loses his $2.

After all bets have been placed the dealer makes a flop and deals three cards, face down, and places them on the table. When the players have viewed their cards, they have the option of using the cards or not. However, they can not pick up other cards because these cards will be used to determine the winner.

Subsequent Rounds of Betting
Another round of betting starts with the player on the left of the dealer after the flop is made. A turn is then made where a fourth card is turned over next to the flop. The players can use this card without picking it as another round of betting starts. The fifth and last card known as The River is finally turned by the dealer and yet another round of betting ensues.

When all the players have completed their bets they all show their cards. If two players are still in the run, they reveal their card to determine the player with the better hand, with reference to the 5 cards on the table and the 2 combination in their hand. The winner takes all the chips on the table. The whole process is repeated until the overall winner takes all the chips or the time limit expires.

In gaming, it is far more of a tradition for me to look back than forward, mainly because I just don't play the newer games. But for once, I think I will take a look forward.  Be forewarned, this article won't necessarily be about games that are coming out in 2019, rather what I intend to play over the next year.

Posted under Suprises, If I put the game titles here you may not bother scrolling down


Instead of a "best of 2018" list, I figured I'd toss together a much more accurate "games that pleasantly surprised me that I played within the last year" list, even for games that weren't released in 2018.

Before typing any further I will fully admit that my old, feeble memory banks whine like a first generation PS3 when thinking about yesterday, and go into full-out Dreamcast lumber-saw grinding if I even try thinking about last week, so recalling anything from a year ago isn't too likely.  Thus, please forgive me if most of the games on here that came out in 2018 are from the tail end of the year.  Anywho, onward!!

I was very excited to learn about the new Dororo anime. I was even more excited to find out that I would have enough time to put out a review of Blood Will Tell before it came out. Well, it's a day late, but it's close enough.

The Sears 1991 Wish Book. The stuff dreams are made of.

Sometimes, a fond old memory can come rushing back to the forefront of your mind with such force that, you get a similar endorphin rush experiencing that memory as you did when it was happening to you the first time. Good memories of a departed loved one spring to mind, and you're instantly transported back in time to a happy memory of you and them, and you get that warm, safe feeling that makes you smile. Perhaps you had a favorite sports personality as a kid, and meeting them to sign a baseball or take a photo with them was a highlight. Years later, you find that baseball in a box in your parents' basement, or come across that photo in an old album, and the memories come rushing back, giving you that same big smile you had when it first happened. For me, I have very fond memories of lying on the floor of my grandparent's living room, next to my younger brother, quietly perusing the Sears and JC Penney catalogs my grandparents received in the mail.

To me, 2018 was a great year for gaming with sequels to long-dormant franchises, new takes on old classics, and open world games where traversal is half the fun. As the year draws to a close it's time to reflect upon the games that made an impact on me in 2018. I have collected my top five games for 2018 and will discuss why they matter to me below.

Posted under Top 10, GOTY, Game of the Year


2018 was a weird year for me, with some high highs and low lows. On the broad scale, the world continues to be....what it is. We'll just have to see how things go there. But for me it was a year of rebuilding, one in which I had a plan. Kind of a one step back in order to make two steps forward thing. Thankfully, I was for the most part able to achieve what I'd set out to do. Not necessarily in the ways I'd hoped or expected, and there were some bumps along the way, but the last few months of the year were pretty great, and my efforts were met with reward.

What does this have to do with games, you ask? Well, unfortunately, the work that needed to be done took a toll on some things. I didn't read as much as I wanted, I didn't game as much as I wanted, and in the last month or so in particular I unceremoniously withdrew from quite a lot of things to make sure I ended up where I wanted to be, one of which being the video game golf tournament on this very website. Still, I was able to make it out to RetroWorld Expo 2018, which was a fantastic trip, the RFCinema feature I started was met with success, I had a great time taking part in the Doom 2016 playcast, and I was pretty proud of the content I was able to produce for RFGen. And while my list this year is more of a "Top 8 Games of 2018 and Top 2 Games of 2017 That I Didn't Play Until 2018", I did manage to play some great stuff. And that's what it's all about, getting all the enjoyment we can from the time that we have. So here's to putting a bow on 2018 and making 2019 all it can be! Let me know what you think of my selections in the comments below.

While I really didn't intend on playing so many new titles this year and instead wanted to focus more on my backlog, I ended up falling into the trap of acquiring and playing as many new releases as I could just like I did in 2017. However, many of these games were great, so I certainly don't regret spending my time with them. Now that the year is over, I wanted to share my overall thoughts on the games I played. Instead of just focusing on a top 10, I decided to rank all the games I played that were released this year. If any noteworthy titles are missing from this list, the reason is simple: I didn't get around to playing them!

Sakura Wars is a long running series of tactical role playing games that was created by Red Entertainment, who has shared most development credit with Sega. Its first release was in 1996 on Sega's Saturn, however this series would remain in Japan. Sega would release four games on its own consoles, two each on the Saturn and Dreamcast. Its fifth entry would release on Sony's PlayStation 2 in 2005, long after Sega finally called it quits on their own hardware. This would be the first game in the series to release outside of Japan, with its original PS2 release localized by NIS America for North America in 2010. The game's later Wii port would be released in North America and Europe at the same time as the PS2 localization. Its design history and mixed reception seemed to have lead Red and Sega to both give up on the series, until a recent announcement of a game called Shin Sakura Taisen in 2018, or New Sakura Wars in English.
