    For Pen & Paper RPGing, I've mostly grown out of the prep-heavy 3.x. Too much time building enemies and painstakingly applying templates to run the game for our group. I've also kind of soured on the...

    Hawken looks like a pretty impressive game, but I've got reservations about the tone of its mech presentation. I like my mechs to have a sense of gravity and weight, and lean a little more towards...

    The Remember Me button isn't part of the quick login at the top of general forum pages, though. That's probably why you're not seeing it, Ratatoskr.

    Like Sean, I'm a genre flirt. I've played and enjoyed at least something from just about everything, though it's hard to hold my interest with a driving game.
