Complimentary game for 1 year anniversary DA:O, BFBC2, SPORE

#1 Edited by Sackmanjones (4761 posts) -

Hey guys, 
   Just checked my e-mail and EA sent me a message with a code to get one free game. They are offering what I listed above, Dragon Age: Origins, Battlefield Bad Company 2, and spore.  Yes they are old games but I for one passed up on Dragon Age and was pretty excited by this deal so I figured that some other people may have passed on these games and wanna jump in.  Just wanted  to let everyone know to check their inbox because I have no clue how long the deal will last. Anyway, I'm off to downloading my copy of DA, enjoy duders! 
 
EDIT: Just checked and offer ends June 23 so definitely get on it if your interested

Still not worth it.

Thanks for the tip duder.

What's the prerequisite to take advantage of this? Do I need the e-mail, or is there a place on the site/client for it?

#5 Posted by ThunderSlash (1953 posts) -

Didn't see one in my inbox, but I'll keep checking just in case. Thanks duder.

@ShaggE My guess is you probably had to sign up around the time orgin launched. It wasn't too clear but that would be my guess

@Sackmanjones: I have a pre-Origin account, hopefully that doesn't bone me somehow. I did get MOH: Airborne for free on the Portuguese site, though, so there's that at least.

On a related note, MOH: Airborne is free on the Portuguese site.

Oh shit I always wanted to play that. Do you mind postin a link?

Got spore, thanks OP (that email I have it assigned to is old and I would never have checked it)

You'll get STDs.

Ehhh, Spore is pretty awesome in the cell stage, creature stage, and space stage. Not anywhere near what was promised or what it could have been, but still an alright game.

What are the prerequisites of getting such an e-mail? Maybe I haven't gotten one because my Origin login is broken since their merging of data and the e-mail they send for account verification is broken as well (it doesn't actually contain my name or a link to verify).

I always found the premise of Spore really intriguing and from what they made it sound like prerelease the possibilities and scale seemed almost endless. Did it not actually turn out that way? I never had the chance to pick it up.

No email, but the only offer I can see related to their 1 year anniversary is half off a game if I buy another one.

Also, it's saying week 3 of 4? I've been on Origin constantly the last three weeks and this is the first I'm seeing of it...

Huh. I haven't gotten an email and I've been a member with EA dating back to 2009.

@Sackmanjones: No prob, Bob. I just grabbed it because lolfree, but I'm kind of curious about it after looking it up. I can't believe I'm going to say this, but... I miss WW2 shooters.

@ShaggE: Awesome dude, I've always wanted to play MOH: Airborne. Thanks!

Edit: Unfortunately I don't have the e-mail described, maybe I'll get one soon. I'd like to own DA:O on PC.

I've had origin for a while, but no email sadly. I never played spore so it would be neat if I could get a code for it.

Ah man, now that you mention it -- I do too. I want an HD D-Day landing!

#22 Posted by mandude (2666 posts) -

Can we get a mod in here to ban the OP (and maybe the other people who got an email)?

#23 Posted by CaptainCody (1521 posts) -

I like how you only have 3 days to even jump on this offer. Some people would miss it in its entirety without even knowing, and you could find those games at this point for 5 dollars. EA going beyond the call of generosity once again.

#24 Posted by Demoskinos (15143 posts) -

Eh, nothing of interest here. Well, Dragon Age if i already didn't own like 4 fucking copies of Dragon Age.

@mandude: why?

#26 Posted by Grillbar (1904 posts) -

i have had origin for a good since BF 3 and i diddent get an email. maybe its cuz im in Europe prehaps. and its not in my spam mail either

@TheDudeOfGaming said:

just want to be clear. its not worth it due to the origin installer or the games.

cuz if its the games then there is something very wrong with out, DA:o and BC 2 are both really awesome games.

if its the installer i dont see why but ofc you have a right to have that opinion and since your not the only one then there must be something about it in your specific case

Because they're massive jerks.

Also, because I didn't get an email. :(

Can I activate it on Steam?

I truly am sorry. It seems like its hit or miss for some people. Maybe it's just rolling out through the week and everyone just gets their separate deadline or something? Idk I check my e-mail like once a week and I just happened to stumble across it. Just tryin to help!

Did not try but they do give you a code to type in so it's possible

Thank you! I want to see if that works...

#32 Posted by TheDudeOfGaming (6078 posts) -

@Grillbar: Yeah i guess it's not exactly clear. Should have just said fuck Origin.

#33 Posted by Djstyles92 (953 posts) -

@AndrewB: I was so so so so hyped for spore, and then it was just slightly decent. It was probably the biggest letdown I've experienced in video games.

Damn it, would have wanted to get my hands on DA: O.
