Just wanted to give a heads up of an excellent article over at our friend Jeff Healy’s blog, Part-Time Elves. If you’re interest in Mecha — giant piloted robots — then check out the article for a list of Mecha RPGs put together by Jeff and some buddies at RPG.Net. Here’s a taste:

The idea of piloting such a fantastic piece of technology has always been fascinating to me, and judging by the number of different RPGs out there that support the idea, I’m not the only one. So I decided to take a look at all of these different systems and see how they handle mecha, and give my opinion on each one.
