    GOG.com is having yet another D&D 'classics' sale. It works the same way as before; the more you order (or own), the higher the discount: from 40% for 1, up to 75% for all 10. Which 10? These:

    Neverwinter Nights: Diamond Edition
    Neverwinter Nights 2: Complete
    Baldur's Gate: The Original Saga
    Baldur's Gate 2: Complete
    Planescape: Torment
    Icewind Dale: Complete
    Icewind Dale 2: Complete
    Forgotten Realms: Demon Stone
    Dungeons & Dragons: Dragonshard
    The Temple of Elemental Evil

    There's no way I can add 10 games to my backlog, but I enjoy RPGs and smiting evil with an axe or magic, so what would be the top couple of choices from these?

    Dragons Hard is essentially rubbish. Its fun, its very much a 90's era RTS before Relic came back with CoH and showed people that RTS could have varied and interesting decisions. Its tech tree and unit types are interesting, but hilariously, completely broken. You can finish the whole Human campaign with nothing but speced up clerics, as everyone in range attacks and everyone who isn't autoheals the others. Its fun, but pointless.

    NWN2? Great but painful to play, cant someone fix the interface in a mod please TY?
    NWN 1? Ugly beyond all recognition but Hordes of the Underdark is a great scripted campaign.
    Baldurs gate 1&2, mod it up and you have a fun but mechanically dumb romp. THAC0!
    Planescape Torment Worth experiencing, but my god is the beggining of the story a road bump, early on its all WORDS and you are like "Why should I care" and then suddenly, you care forever.
    Icewind Dale is Baldur's Gate diluted and strained through a colander. Its lean and and intense.
    The Temple of Elemental Evil gets praise, but I haven't really got into it yet, its turn based.
    Forgotten Realms: Demon Stone looks pretty crap.

    Torment and the Baldurs Gates are the stand-outs for sure. After that you're probably looking at NWN2 and the Icewind Dales.

    Cool. I'll go with the Baldur's Gates then and see how I fare.

    Dragonshard is a shit version of Spellforce, a statement I'm pretty sure will cause your mind to go apoplectic.

    Otherwise Torment, BG2, IWD1&2, and NWN2 are all great. My love of PS:T is well known, as if my love of NWN2: Mask of the Betrayer. BG2 is also an incredible game which (THACO aside) has great gameplay and many wonderful fights (As opposed to Torment which has wonderful conversations). The Icewind Dale games and core Neverwinter Nights 2 campaign are fun fantasy romps, with the latter having problems of the engine variety but a lot of good in there too.

    Hello, My name is Dr. Francis Chickenfeet, I am the user you know as 'Heliocentric's doctor. I just wanted you to know that after he started ripping doors of their hinges and we were forced to sedate him that 'heliocentric' said

    Thanks for pointing that out. I was thinking about buying it from Nuuvem (in Brazil), for around 24,- . But as they seem to be region-locked (again), I think I'll wait for another bargain, maybe ebay?
    Seems this might have to do with the later release in non-US regions...damn Internet-oceans :-/

    I own almost all of these thanks to last year's GOG Christmas sale, and I still haven't played any of them. I am part of the problem.

    Thought I'd mention that Euro Truck Simulator 1 is currently in the Groupees Build a Meridian 4 Megabundle, under the name "Big Rig Europe". 3 games minimum for $1.

    I am German and I just bought Saints Row 4 on amazon.com. Turns out I can't activate the key on steam and it says the product is not available in my region. Looks like they're region-locking pretty hard so beware.

    Had the same issue with Saints Row III. I used a VPN to activate it successfully, been playing it ever since without issue. Steam doesn't look to kindly on that though IIRC (the activating part).

    AFAIK if you want your games on Steam, just buy (well trade, buy the keys on the Steam Market) them through TF2outpost.com

    In most cases it'll be cheaper than anywhere else.

    Deep Silver aren't getting a red cent from me until the whole region-locking situation become totally clear (especially given the impact of AU censored/ROW keys for Australians), and they deign to respond to all the queries about why in the space of 2 days the Australian version of the game has gone from about to pre-load to delayed a month and now delayed to some random unspecified date in September. And to think it had been a guaranteed pre-order.

    So you aren't pre-ordering...

    Good job, you made the correct decision. If you have even the slightest doubt or concern, just wait. The game will still be there, and will probably be cheaper.

    If you want me on either service, I suggest PMing me here first to let me know who you are.

    I'm sure Spellforce 2 is fine
    Don't spread such lies. Spellforce 2 is not very good. They removed pretty much everything interesting from the first game. Presumably based on the whining of those without taste. What you are left with is a game that isn't bad but is never really interesting at all.
    Irrelevant on further examination of the rest of the thread.

    Steam Games From Paris sale. Doesn't show in my client but works on the website.
    Copacabanacom shows once again how they don't get Steam: their two months old mega-bomba Remember Me is only 40% off.
