Thanks!




I don't know whether to laugh or cry.


laugh til you are crying? It seems I'm the only person here who had minimal interest in this bundle, but even I want to buy it based on the demand for it alone

Just a head's up to all of you. The prices have flipped on most of these, but some of the items are cheaper than advertised. Seasons, Monte Vista & 70s, 80s and 90s Stuff are cheaper than they're supposed to be.

EDIT: Supernatural is a little cheaper too.


Looks like we got this fixed, thanks for the headsup :).

You shoulda asked for a price match for Wargame while it was on Steam sale. Amazon already had massive paradox collections sold during january just past....

I bought the Sims 3 too early, so I'm not going to waste money on expansions, but it might be a good time to get Medieval since I don't see it going any lower.

Is medieval an extension where I need to buy sims 3? I NEVER played sims before and would love to see why a lot of people like it. Also, I'm guessing Sims games are not very demanding on PC's?

Nope Medieval is a standalone game. It's ok, but it's not anything like the Sims3-crack that makes you want Katy Perry Cupcake Bra DLC when you're high.

I'm guessing you haven't preordered anything from Amazon recently. They don't do 99 cent RDD anymore. There's only 2 day shipping now, which will get it to you on release day.

The government banned the sale of The Sims 2 a while back due to a growing epidemic of unemployed Sims 2 addicts forced to live on cat food.

Oh, I see.

Well the only thing that I can suggest is that maybe the key was entered into the wrong place. When you go to thesims3.com, you have a couple of different places to enter the key. First go to the menu bar at the top of the page and hover over "My Page". With the drop down menu that appears, scroll down to "My Account". Another Drop Down appears.

There are a couple of different options there that will allow you to redeem a key. The first one from the top is "Register A Game". This takes you to a page that has 5 boxes to enter key digits into (20 Digits total). This is where you register the actual games/expansions.

The other option in that drop-down menu is "Redeem a Code", which will take you to a page that has 4 boxes to enter key digits into (16 Digits total). This is the area where you redeem keys from sim point cards and for towns (I used this to redeem Monte Vista).

Is it possible your friend went to the "Redeem a Code" page? If not, has your friend checked their "My Store Account" page to see if the games have shown up there? Sometimes it takes a few minutes for them to show up.

The "Refresh" is just a more up-to-date-patched version. It's saving you from a couple of gigs of patch downloads vs the original release (assuming you buy the physical media). Not sure what version you get if you buy directly off Origin, but I suppose it would give you the most recent patched build. In any case you're downloading everything so it doesn't matter.

I bought this on sale in December when Amazon previously dropped it to $10 and just got around to playing now. Bought through Amazon, redeemed key through Origin. As of one week ago installed the base unpatched version from Origin and had a separate 1.3GB patch needed post-installation.

If there was ever a game which could use a Season Pass this would be it. $25 annually wouldn't be a stretch given the game originally came out in 2009. Offer an "all DLC until now" bundle for $50 and the Season Pass for $25 and watch your sales skyrocket. I can keep dreaming though...

I think they would make more money going the Hat Fortress way. Open a Sims store, where users can create and sell content, EA getting 30% of the cut.

I don't think Origin is that advanced yet. You must be thinking of that other service. :-P

I downloaded Sims Medieval recently from Origin and then when the game ran the launcher it still needed to download the updates and install them.

It's possible that they do keep Sims 3 more up to date but I kind of doubt it. They seem to be relying on the launchers to do the updates which means you download the old versions first then run the launcher then do the updates. *Edit confirmed by a least one Amazon review, at least as of July 2012.

I have a problem and a question.

The problem is that I can't register on thesims3.com website. it says it need my serial key for either the game itself or an expansion, but the serial key I have in Origin won't work, so I can't register.

My question is: When I buy for example the Pets expansion, do I enter the serial I get from Amazon in Origin or on the website (Im hearing some talk about the website).
