Their site said I needed to validate my email. Been about 24 hours since I clicked the link for them to send the email. Yeah EA!

Even if you got it, it'd probably not have a link to verify...mine didn't. I had customer support verify my address for me, but didnt matter anyway as they still never sent me a code.

The single player of Bad Company 2 is very enjoyable, however it biggest strength was its online, which has died down alot since Battlefield 3 came out, you will still be able to find games, it is just 'last weeks news' so to speak.

Dragon Age: Origins is a great RPG which feels very Game of Thrones style story meeting gameplay elements from Knights of the Old Republic from Bioware. This is the title I would suggest the more.

Spore was not my thing and bored me to tears.

Haha, totally in my spam folder. Anyways, the only one I didn't have was Spore, so... eh. wtf.

I'm sure this is EA's way of getting me comfortable with actually buying something from their store rather than just inputting codes from boxed copies of games, amazon-bought copies, and steam codes (the ones that work).


My thoughts exactly. Good luck with that one EA!

Apparently my E-mail was unverified too.. Which is odd considering I bought Bad Company 2.

So it's fine to have that while I buy a video game, but to receive one for 1 of 3 games they aren't likely even been sold well anymore. Then that's where EA drives the line? oh well I've played parts of orgins and Spore and DA crashed n' burned with DA2.

well. I guess they don't like me. Email is all set up due to BF3, but no email. But the only one I don't have is Spore, and I don't know what it's like now, but it's prob still a DRM mess. But it looks entertaining at least.

edit: but oddly enough, i've recieved other promotional emails from them about me3 and such. no wonder they're the most evil company in america.

Haha yeah I was just coming here to say the same thing.

DA1 with all DLC + DA2 for $10 all next week on Amazon starting sunday.

A lot of the DA1 DLC honestly was pretty bleh and rehashed the same old areas or was an out and out cheat like those feastday presents, but Awakenings (the expansion) had a lot of content in it.

Among the regular DLC I would say the Warden's Keep was probably the most decent followed by Returned to Ostargar, which wasn't amazing but did give some needed closure on the whole Cailan thing.

They rest are pretty crap in my opinion.

I don't count the Stone Prisoner as a separate DLC because they literally surgically removed it from the main game and it was given free to everyone who bought the game retail, though I imagine if they give it to you for free they probably won't give the Stone Prisoner with it. Not sure really.

I won't even go into Dragon Age 2 because if you can't say something nice...

At least with the Amazon sale it's dirt cheap.

Anyone else having issues with codes being passed to them from friends which don't work? My buddy sent me an unused code, which is not activating in the client or website.

I figured it out - you have to add the game you want to your shopping card on Origin, then go to check out and apply the code there. I tried redeeming the code straight up in the client and it didn't work.

No one actually reads all the words anymore, do they? The email - as I posted in the OP - has step-by-step how to redeem the code; here, let's have them again...

1. Log in to the Origin gaming app from your desktop.
2. Use the search bar to choose your favorite game from Dragon Age: Origins, Battlefield: Bad Company 2, and Spore.
3. Add the game to your cart.
4. Scroll to the bottom of the page, click “Enter Promo Code” and enter the following promo code:
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

...but I've seen so many posts about how people needed to "figure out" how to make it work - e.g. "I went to the web site and pasted in my code and it's not working! EA SUX!!!" - it worries me about the state of reading comprehension in the world.

I didn't read the OP, and I had the code e-mailed to me (not the original body.) But thanks for talking down to me. I'll bet Harvard is glad to have you.

Hmm, did not know only college people knew how to read and comprehend. It has been stated several times that it has to be redeemed via the Origin client.

No one was talking down to you specifically. I was just remarking on how many people seemed to be having trouble despite clear instructions being provided. If someone sent you just the code alone because they didn't simply forward the email, you should discuss the importance of context with them, as in, "Would it have killed you to send me the whole email so I wouldn't have had to muddle around trying to figure out how to use it?"
