I believe your online address must be your EA/Origin address, so you can't have your store email be email@example.com and the game email be firstname.lastname@example.org. (I had a similar problem when I set up my COD Elite stuff and couldn't sync with my old site PW because it didn't meet the new PW strength requirements. Lame.)
I have crysis 2 but i cant get the online to work. I keep getting invalid email when i make an account.
Due to backlog, I'm holding of on Crysis 2 until it goes below $8. I never finished the original yet (despite finally having a PC that can manhandle it) or Warhead and when playing on PC now it's pretty much Battlefield 3, so why add to the never-gonna-play pile when you can wait?

I can't wait until they get a better selection of games. It blows me away that they don't add their past catalog of games for sale. I don't think they realize how many gamers enjoy making nostalgia trips.
They have more at stake in terms of releasing their old games than Steam does. For one, they would have to make sure their games are compatible with current systems. It is EA's delivery system, so they will get even more flak if they release incompatible versions of their own games. 99% of the old games on Steam are from other publishers, so it really isn't entirely Valve's fault.

They have a deal with GOG for those and I'm pretty sure whatever contract they signed at the time stipulated the games to be GOG exclusive as they have yet to show up anywhere else.
For the most part they are $6 and all the games are DRM free so its far better than you'd get on Origin.
