While we're on the subject of Baldur's Gate, is there any way to discern what mods are already installed? I was thinking about giving it another go; I installed a shitton of mods on it a while back and then bounced off the character creation screen. I hate character creation screens. Gothic 2 is far too similar to Gothic 1, so since everyone else is playing BG I might as well jump on the bandwagon.

Life got serious and tedious again so I have had to put aside the delights of New Vegas for a happier time.
Not sure if I'll be able to play much over the next month but if I do I've earmarked sessions for cathartic shooting of things, so decided to give RAGE a second chance and also bought Dead Island GOTY for 4 quid for the same purpose.
Also managed to adjust the sliders on Fifa and have got a fairly realistic game of foot-to-ball going, it's a real pleasure now when you get some momentum going.

Surgeon Simulator 2013 crashes non-stop. I never get to remove the stomach because it just keeps crashing.
I'll switch to offline in my Steam friends list because I don't want to annoy people with constant "SirKicksalot is playing SS2013" and try again...

I recently discovered Astats.nl, and based on that I'm replaying Half Life 2 because of how close I am to getting 100% achievements. I know, achievements are generally worthless, but when backed by a good statistics aggregate like Astats I find them oddly compelling. I have the same problem with PS3 games and PSNprofiles.com.

I'm not playing anything now, that's the problem. Hoping to grab StarDrive soon (if the late game issues are fixed), and Sleeping Dogs or Lords of Football caught my eye, but they're both a little too expensive when all I'm basically looking for is something to kill time. So an old game from my shelves then? King's Bounty calls to me, or possibily Jade Empire. Still haven't gotten past the first town on that. Or I could pay a visit to GoG and buy a new old game.
Freespace 2 looks interesting. I haven't played it before, but did play the fanmade Wing Commander Saga which was modded from Freespace.

Is it story-driven? Does it have space poker?

It also has one of the best plot twists there is and that's sadly just about the only thing it has going for it, besides the rather original setting maybe."Reason is the madness of the strongest"

Its a wonderful space opera, with excellent combat mechanics and creates a wonderful sense of time and place as well as excellent ai and variety of ships and weapons. And the second game has arguably the greatest explosions in any game ever. Not to mention some of the most frantic capital ship vs. capital ship combat i've ever seen. DEM LASERS!
I've posted on the games before and am very familiar with the series so feel free to bang away with questions.

The BGs (and later NWNs and DAs) are a bit harder as you have to rely on the game giving you people to fill each role.
That being said, the extent of my research is mostly just to make sure there are good weapons of a specific type (if I am rolling a character who needs a good weapon). So that just means skimming the weapon list or, in the case of the excellent AL series for NWN1, just asking the creator "Hey, is it worth rolling a barbarian who uses greataxes?"Steam: Gundato
If you want me on either service, I suggest PMing me here first to let me know who you are.

Baldur's Gate II does have a somewhat lacking cast of pure arcane casters, though.

(I'm assuming by DAs you're referring to something other than Dark Alliance?)

I keep going back to Rage but I'm wondering why I'm bothering...
Most games have some sort of thing to aim at - a badguy to depose/catch/kill, skills to hone or levels to gain or whatever.
Rage seems to skip all of that and is simply self-contained - you get a tonne of missions, each of which simply earns you money/unlocks more weapons.
The 'skill' of the game is in remembering to buy the shitload of ammo you'll need I think - otherwise it just feels like a self-fulfilling slog with no actual reason to be doing it?
Right now I'm working through Dead City, dealing with unspeakably nasty things just to give myself a better defib. - the one I have has done me fine thusfar so clearly I'm doing this so it can give me even harder things to do.
Why didn't I just take up drinking and gambling like the rest of the remains of the human race again?
Also - I've finally seen what people grumbled about, I thought the game looked OK until I reached Dead City but I now have the awful textures and other crap which makes me feel vaguely like I'm in a Dali painting brought to life...

If you want my advice: the Dead City boss fight is the perfect high note to end the game on if you don't feel like playing any more of it.
