Over 100 games on sale but a lot of them are just 50% off. There are some at 75% off such as Dragon Age: Ultimate Edition, Dragon Age 2 and Bulletstorm. The sale runs all week.

$6 for Deus Ex Augmented if you still don't have it.

$5 is pretty good for RO2 for those that missed it on GMG.

Dragon Age Origins UE for $7.50 and Dragon Age 2 for $5 are both tempting, looks like the lowest these games have ever gone, although Amazon sold them together for $10 a few months back.

They activate on Origin, but not Steam. I don't really feel like installing more game store/manager programs, so I've stuck to Steam so far, but this might persuade me to add Origin.

Do all of the games in the sale activate on Origin?

I'm looking at some games, and it says I need to download the GameStop app to do so. I am wondering if this means I need the GameStop app to actually play the game, or I just need it for the download...

Really not interested in having yet another client on my computer if I need it to play the game, but I guess I would be okay if its just for the download (as with GameFly).

It really depends. Only EA games activate on origin and even those are hit and miss. Older EA games may not activate or may require a work around or chatting with a helpful customer service rep and asking them to manually add it to your account. That's not a guarantee though...

With you all the way on the clients, but the more there are the lower the prices will be, so it's an inconvenience that I'm okay with. Hope this list helps.

Thanks for the reply.

The two games I am looking at - Alice: Madness Returns and The Saboteur - are both old EA games.

I wish they would say on the webpage if their app is just a downloading client or not.

Wow, thanks for the link. Both my games (Alice and Saboteur) are on it.
So basically I buy the games through GameSpot and if they don't use Origin for activation, I email EA with proof of purchase and they send me a key? I guess I could do that....

Thanks again.

Yeah, I bought both those on Amazon and both activated with no problems on Origin, though some people report needing to chat with support for Saboteur.

Not only is it a Steam key for the Augmented Edition, but it also includes the Explosive Mission Pack bundled!

Not sure if the Augmented Edition should include this piece of DLC, but I bit for $5.99. Good price!

If you are talking about Deus Ex: Human Revolution - that game flat-out requires Steam PERIOD.

I can't speak for the original Deus Ex and DE: Invisible War.
I have those from Retail from WAY back and those didn't require a client back then.
I think that was before Steam existed or even really began to take off.

They do. It says Steamworks on the page for it. I just bought the regular version during the gamefly sale so of course the Augmented edition drops this cheap. Damn.

Do you have GameStop PC App program installed?
When I've bought Steam game-keys from them - it usually shows up there in that program and in your account there.

That is, of course - unless they sold out on DE:HR...
I hope not...

Wow, that was incredibly easy.

I bought Alice: Madness Returns, Dragon Age II, and the Saboteur. I used a GameStop gift card as payment. I even received a 10% discount for being a reward zone member, which essentially nullified taxes.

I downloaded the GameStop app and connected it with the email and password on file of my newly-registered GameStop PC Download account, then selected the "My Games" tab in the app. Each of the games prominently has a button to click labeled "Product Code". Then I opened up my Origin app and redeemed each of the codes.

I'm happy. Thanks, OP.

I did download that bloaty crap. It installs some InstallAware and then the app. Something strange about it is, it shows my... Origin games. Which is only BFBC2. And Deus is not listed there. Just look at their forum, everyone is complaining about it: http://forums.impuls....com/forum/1006

eh it's okay. I think I paid something like $10 or so for Fable 3 with all the dlc during the summer sale steam had but for $9 it's not a bad price. I've seen it @ retailers still selling for a lot more than $9 that's for sure..

By the way, it'll work on GFWL and has Xbox 360 controller support with achievements.

Thanks, man. Grabbed it and downloading now. For anyone on the fence, it's an amazing game. I'm just rebuying on PC to play it again. Already finished it on PS3.
