Dual Screens: Awesome Pea: REVIEW (Xbox one & Nintendo switch)

Awesome Pea

Often times multiple authors wind up playing the same game at the same time but the differences between consoles may not warrant two separate reviews. Dual Screens is a segment on Galaxy of Geek where two authors review the same game but each offer their own perspective and score.  Nintendo Switch By: Frank Duran Awesome Pea is full of nostalgia but […]

Review: Mario and Luigi: Dream Team

Poor Luigi. Despite his lithe physique, vibrant green coveralls and a much better coifed mustache than his genetic counterpart, he was relegated to “little bro” status from the get-go. With Nintendo proclaiming 2013 the “Year of Luigi,” you’d think the guy would finally get a break (well, besides the phenomenal Luigi’s Mansion), but no matter how incredibly fun Mario & […]

Backlog Quest II: Day 23 – Captain America: Super Soldier (NDS) – Light on the super

Dear Journal, Today I fought for truth, justice and the American way. Captain America: Super Soldier is a pretty standard 2.5D side-scrolling beat em’ up that draws comparisons to classic 2D games of the same type. You fight a horde of mindless enemy soldiers and the occasional boss through a series of rooms in a very elaborate German castle. At […]

Backlog Quest II: Day 21 – Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion – 90’s kid at heart

Dear Journal, Today I rescued most of Disney’s famous characters from an evil witch. Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion is sort of a sequel to the classic Castle of Illusion game, as well as a sequel to Epic Mickey: Power of Two. Mickey has been called to a castle in order to save Minnie, a castle that is vaguely familiar […]

Backlog Quest II: Day 16 – Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands (DS) – The (easily) forgotten version

Dear Journal, Today Clearance Bin Review turned two! It was two years ago today that I launched CBR and published our first review, The Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands.  By pure chance the opportunity to play the DS version of the game, which I knew to be notably different, came about last week and it seemed like a really […]

Backlog Quest II: Day 14 – Cabela’s Survival: Shadows of Katmai – Tomb Raider meets Buck Hunter

Dear Journal, Today I learned to be careful for what I wish for. I made sort of a weird statement when I was reviewing Cabela’s Big Game Hunter 2012. I lamented the lack of a crazy mountain man father figure that made Dangerous Hunts 2011 so interesting.  Well Cabela’s brought back the crazy in Shadows of Katmai, as well as […]

Backlog Quest II: Day 6 – Looney Tunes: Acme Arsenal – Rabbit season

Dear Journal, Today I fought robots as a waskly rabbit. Looney Tunes: Acme Arsenal is one of those games that exist because someone, somewhere was told to make a game based on a popular license and they had to think of what to do with it.  There have been a fair share of Looney Tunes based video games over the […]

Indie Games Uprsing III Review: Entropy – Portal minus the portals

The Indie Games Uprising III has succumbed to Entropy; no not the thermodynamic property of cooling down (to overly simplify), but rather a Portal inspired indie game by the same name. Entropy has you solving various puzzles in a first person platformer that earns its name in multiple ways. The most obvious way Entropy earns its moniker is that the […]

Indie Games Uprising III Review: Gateways! – For science!

Gateways takes the Indie Games Uprising III through  portals and time and twist everything up in the process. To try and write this review without referencing the obvious source material would be possible, but pointless. The game is Portal, but 2D, a whole hell of a lot more difficult and with a lot more than just a simple portal gun. […]

Backlog Quest: Day 30 – Star Wars: The Clone Wars – Republic Heroes

Dear Journal, Today I found out that even Jedi Knights can be totally un-cool. Star Wars: The Clone Wars – Republic Heroes is a video game with three titles and only one camera angle. A mix between platforming and third person shooter, Republic Heroes never manages to really nail either one. The game takes place between the events of seasons […]
