Marching Onward: Iron Edda Accelerated

By Anthony “LibrariaNPC” DeMinico, 01 August 2018 When I think of games set in an era of vikings, I think of heroes slaying beasts, gods guiding humans to great deeds or follies, and events that involve weaving of epic tales and showcasing the hubris of both man and god.

On The Road With The Nomad Armory

By Anthony “LibrariaNPC” DeMinico, 18 July 2018 It’s no small secret that I’ve been trying to streamline my RPG kit over the years.

By Engi, 14 February 2018 Recently, I streamed both Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) and Fortnite, two of Twitch’s most watched games, for a couple friends so that they could get a sense of what both were like. I played a solid hour or so of each, and of course, I was terrible at both games….

Nier or Far from Perfect?

By Engi, 11 August 2017 Nier: Automata is an action RPG from Platinum Games that is an indirect sequel to Nier, both of which I never heard of and have never played. I ended up with Nier: Automata on my “Must Play” list after watching an Outside Xtra video where Ellen and Luke messed around,…

Orwell: “Do You Believe in Coincidence?”

By Zatheera, 28 July 2017 Orwell is yet another game that had originally caught my eye due to one of Mike Laidlaw’s Indie Saturdays streams (VA11-HALL-A being the first I reviewed after seeing it on his stream was ). I had put it on my wishlist and purchased it at 50% off during the Steam…

VA-11 HALL-A: Cyberpunk Bartender Action

By Zatheera, 17 June 2017 Time to Mix Drinks and Save Lives! I’ve wanted to try VA-11 HALL-A: Cyberpunk Bartender Action ever since I’d watched Mike Laidlaw stream it on twitch (where I go by a different handle) during one of his Indie Saturday streams. I’m not sure why I didn’t buy it right off…
