Went through my stack of games to finish and grabbed Darksiders and Vanquish. Darksiders just doesn't have that excellent quality. Just borrows stuff from great games and is just 'okay'. But I'm not that far and maybe it gets better.
All this hoopla over Mass Effect 3 and the new editions of Baldur's Gate, plus a little spending money, convinced me to dig up the password for my GOG account. I'm in a quandary over what to buy, though:
Baldur's Gate 2 (Includes Throne of Bhaal)
Baldur's Gate (Includes Tales of the Sword Coast)
The Settlers 2
Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri
Tropico Reloaded (Tropico, Paradise Island expansion and Tropico 2)
I'm not looking to spend more than $20, and I'm not really sure where to dive in first. Recommendations appreciated.
Just as a follow up to this, I bought Baldur's Gate, The Witcher, and Alpha Centauri for $20 tonight. For those that don't have it on PC, The Witcher: Enhanced Edition is $5 at GOG right now (limited time offer, not sure when it expires). There's also a huge Interplay sale, so the first three Fallout games (1, 2, Tactics) are $3 each, along with both MDK games and a handful of other titles.
I am currently playing Prophecy of Pendor, which is a mod for Mount and Blade: Warband. The mod is a huge step above Warband in terms of playability and content. There is a lot more to do, much more items, weapons, quests, completely new factions and cities, and there are actual victory conditions. It's also much more difficult than Warband.

Just downloaded Tribes: Ascend, going to check it out soon.
If you're interested, as well as anybody else on these forums with Tribes Ascend, I have plenty of promo codes for 250 free gold in the game. It's good for a perk or a lower level item like an explosive nitron for pathfinders. PM me if you want a code and I'll send you one. Only one code will work on an account too, already tried redeeming more than one.
