Thinking about going with Dragon Age: Origins, wonder if it works on Ultimate Edition.

"buyer" beware Origin scans your computer for anything it may not like. Just a heads up

Damn, didn't get one. On the other hand, I own both Spore and DA:O, and have little interest in BF:BC2, but still, a game is a game.

Not a scam, you must install origin on your PC though, and buy the game through there. I got BFBC2 for free, after using the Promo code. Too bad I don't have a gaming PC anymore.

I havent gotten one either, I have a bunch of games on Origin....some strange feeling with EA I think that works against me.


Yeah I don't have one either and I've bought a couple hundred dollars worth of stuff on Origin.

It's just a promo code, you don't follow any links from the email.
Just log into Origins Desktop, and use the promo code at checkout

Is the promo code a 1 time use?

I didn't get one, most likely because I live in Aus.

Could it require that you're account be created before a certain date? The email sounds like it could be meant as a reward for long term customers. I haven't gotten anything; I created my account for the BF3 beta.

I doubt it, mine was created in 2008 and I've received nothing.

It's a one use code, so it's not valid once it's used.

DA:O is the best game but keep in mind it has a ton of DLC. The others have expansions but they aren't nearly as essential as Dragon Age's extras. I'd snag one of the other and buy DA:O Ultimate Edition for 10 bucks like it usually goes on sale for, as the individual DLC going on sale is fairly rare.

Yeah I'd recommend doing the same.. you're better off buying the ultimate edition whenever it goes on sale rather than getting Origins for free.

I have NOT played Spore yet, even though that's the freebie I just took here.

BF:BC2 is a great FPS - whether you want a really good SP campaign or MP online shooter.
You can't lose w/ this title, either way.

DA:O is 100+ hours of RPG awesome-ness.
Granted, it doesn't contain Awakening or the 9 DLC's in the Ultimate Edition], but this here is the best bang for your buck...for actual game-time.
If you are missing DAO and you love strategy-RPG's like Baldur's Gate 1 and 2 - GET THIS. NOW.
For free, you'd be insane to pass this up.
Awakening (Expansion) is good, but it's nowhere even close to as great as DAO (base game).
I do also have DA:O Ultimate Edition [DAO + Awakening + ALL 9 DLC's] - and I have yet to touch most of the DLC's there.

Make sure the expiration date is in the OP and possibly the title; its June 23rd at 10pm PDT

Edited OP, but couldn't fit date in title. Thanks for the suggestion.

No email for me, though I basically never get EA promotional emails like birthday coupons or anything. Kind of a shame since I wouldn't mind checking out Spore.

Probably have a setting somewhere telling EA not to send me emails, which ends up including promotions like free games.

Edit: Checked my account, says my email address is unverified. I tell it to send me a verification email, which it does. The content of the email is as follows:


Dear ,

Thank you for using Origin! Please click the link below to verify your email address.

If clicking the link above does not work, copy and paste the URL into a new browser window.

Happy gaming,
Your friends at Origin


Exactly that. No name to go with Dear , and no link whatsoever. Origin!
