Make The Stars Wrong in Fate of Cthulhu

By Anthony "LibrariaNPC" DeMinico,  26 June 2019 There is a great deal of love and admiration of the Cthulhu Mythos among gamers and horror fans. There was something about “the fear of what man was not meant to know” that inspired the genre for years after Lovecraft passed on. While we have multiple Call of... Continue Reading →

Storming The Castle: The Princess Bride RPG

By Anthony "LibrariaNPC" DeMinico,  12 June2019 There’s a shortage of perfect movies in this world. It’d be a pity to ruin this one. That’s my feeling every time I hear about something coming out with The Princess Bride name and branding. I never say “The movie was better than the book,” but this film has... Continue Reading →

Super Powers For A SuperAge

By Anthony "LibrariaNPC" DeMinico,  29 May 2019 In my opinion, RPGs based around heroes are difficult to get right. Sometimes a game will come out tied to a specific comic line or one specific character, but it will fail for anything beyond it.

I’m sure we were all raised with hearing ghost stories, seeing horror movies set... Continue Reading →

I have a number of reviews of these books already, and there are many... Continue Reading →

Powering Up With Power Outage

By Anthony "LibrariaNPC" DeMinico,  17 April 2019 Games pitched to children have been a hit or a miss in my book. Usually, the mechanics are either so simplified that they become unplayable after a while (and often broken by older kids and adults), or they are just kid themed with a convoluted mechanic. That said,... Continue Reading →

REvisiting The World of Survival Horror

By Anthony "LibrariaNPC" DeMinico,  20 March 2019 Resident Evil will always be a special game for me. Growing up, it was a group game: friends and I would usually meet up, take turns playing, throwing ideas of where to go next and how to solve puzzles, and generally enjoy the story. Newer iterations of the... Continue Reading →

Invading The Quest RPG

By Anthony "LibrariaNPC" DeMinico,  20 February 2019 Last year, I was keeping my eyes open for interesting, low cost games to pick up for review. One of my fellow gamers on Twitter shared a link for the Kickstarter for Quest, and while I was a bit wary, I really couldn’t resist. I mean, how many... Continue Reading →
