I consider myself a man who knows what he wants in life. I want my RPGs to have job systems. I want my strategy games to have wizards. I don't mind real-time with pause, but I prefer turn-based because then I can drink my coffee with one hand and carefully plot the enemy's demise with my mouse in the other. And I don't mind dying and losing all my souls as long as I can look cool doing it.

Favourite Games/Series

System Shock 2 held the belt for years, but Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous is coming up as a strong contender.

Favourite Genres

Turn-based tactical RPGS, Souls-likes, rogue-lites, CRPGs

Misc Interests

books/movies/music. Usually the nerdier the better, especially if it's fantasy written by someone with two r's in their initials.
