Looking forward to getting Dragon Age Origins Ultimate and II for PS3. I tried to check out to see of the prices were live, but no-go.

I'd like to pick up Dragon Age 2, but what are the odds that they'll eventually release an Ultimate Edition of DA2 with all the DLC?

Also, fair warning for people getting Dragon Age: Origins on console -- it's a tradeoff either way. PS3 = better graphics, but often choppy framerate. 360 = noticeably worse graphics and textures, but mostly smooth framerate.

DA 2 appears to have fared better (i.e. pretty good) for both consoles in terms of graphics and performance.

Never played any Command and Conquer games - any recommendations on which to start with (if they are indeed all $5 each to download)?

Thanks

Do people still play Battlefield 2142?


I hope so. Probably my favorite Battlefield.

Oh, gotcha. Thanks!

Anyone have tips on other EA racing games I should check out? I tend to go for more arcade style racing, but sims are okay as long as there's a gentle difficulty curve. I am currently playing the following racing games:

  • Dirt 2 (I find this game really hard, but I'm grinding so I can earn better handling cars)
  • Burnout Paradise (gorgeous and fun, but I really dislike the open-world nature of the game. I loved Burnout Legends on my PSP since the tracks were closed and the gameplay fun overall. Honestly, I have a terrible sense of direction in real life and in games.)

Some of my old-school favorite racing games were Formula 1 and Ridge Racer 4 on the PSOne, Test Drive Le Mans 24 Hours on the Dreamcast, and truthfully nearly anything ChoroQ-based (Road Trip on the GameCube was heartbreakingly buggy).

Thanks in advance!


Need For Speed Hot Pursuit is made by the same guys as Burnout Paradise. It is probably the only Need For Speed game I have really enjoyed.

You also might like Shift as it is an arcade racer that got confused and tried to be a sim. Personally I love sims so I couldn't stand the arcady front tires are glue and back are on ice handling while racing around real tracks.

I hit an EA sale like this up a month ago maybe? Anyway the site did a very bad job of letting me know what was going on with my order as there was no info in my account of having ordered something but eventually I got an email with a key for Shift to put into Origin. I didn't care at all about getting another version of Shift so I never remeeded it but I assume that is more straight forward.

When I click on the link I don't see anything 40% off when I was checking out? is $39.99 for Dragon Age 2 really the price? Because that is not 40% of $59.99

Shame their selection of PCDD games suck.

I will be buying NFS:HP, Skate 3 and Dante's Inferno for the PS3 though. Finally found an excuse to buy them.

Free Ship with 39 or More Order

*Info taken from the banner on the site.

Edit: 6.99 Standard Otherwise (Plus, the delivery guy comes to your door wearing a banana hammock. At least that's what showed up at my door last time.)

My best friend and I think that's awesome. In fact she used the words "Bad-ass." What about the tax? I need to see what else I might want or if I want free shipping at all. Hm..

Not sure if I should bite then. The shipping sorta ruins it since I fall short by a bit.

Im going to do the gohastings 40% off deal instead of this. The shipping kills it and shift isnt the console version. Not to mention even with the 40% off ea deal bulletstorm still is a couple of bucks higher than my price point.

Will this be a code or will all the prices on that site drop? I'm about to turn in. I was waiting just for this deal to start to make sure I get my copy. Portal 2 + Dragon Age Ultimate hits free shipping btw guys if it's 40% off.

Wow, shipping is $7. I will definitely pass. I don't feel like spending over $40 on EA games just to get free shipping. (All I wanted as Dragon Age 2 anyways, looks like I will just wait for an ultimate edition)

EDIT:I think the system is messing up. It just showed Portal 2 at 59.99 yet ME 2 at 7 bucks. I refreshed and it went back to original prices.

Anyone having trouble adding NFS: Shift for free to their PC-only digital download order? I only have Mirror's Edge (PC, downloadable) in my cart, but when I check my shopping cart or try to check out I don't see Shift.

EDIT: Ah, BOO. Looks like Shift is only given to people who purchase physical product. To test things I added a retail game to my cart and Shift was added automatically. Once I removed the retail game (DA2, XBox 360) Shift also left the cart. What the heck? I would have thought that Shift would have been more of a PC bonus given that it's the PC DD version. Or am I just smoking crack and doing something wrong?

I don't really want to spend over 39 so shipping kills it for me. I just wanted Mass Effect 2 for the PS3 but that would bring it to about 30 and that's what it's going for on Amazon anyway. At the same time, the deals are great over that amount.
