Amazon seems to have price matched the C&C Collection for 16.99 - 5/coupon for 11.99:
http://www.amazon.co...uct/B009IR1SR0/

Personally, I'm still passing though. If it's a bug, get it quick, but I don't think really old games at 11.99 is that crazy.


Old games still have value...

GOG regularly sells old games for $6 each, and there's a ton of games in this pack. If you like rts games it's a great deal and with the re-release you don't have to worry about them not working on Windows 7 or 8 (they do just fine with this release) or having some crappy old disc based DRM scheme, since this pack just uses Origin.

So I just activated this in the following order:

1. DoW II Retribution
2. DoW II Last Standalone DLC Pack

When I did so item number 2 registered as a DLC pack, not just the last standalone.

Are you saying this is different than what you experienced? Trying to write a summary to the team and want to make sure I'm not mis communicating something.

Cheers,
Tony


I sent you a couple of PMs about this. I think some of the key batches were the Last Standalone base, but some were correct. I activated DoW II Retribution first, then when I tried the DLC pack, it said I owned the product already. When I gave the DLC key to my gf, she registered it just fine, but it was the Last Standalone base, not the DLC: http://i.imgur.com/0X9kR.png

That's tempting on CnC. Wish I had a way of knowing A) How many coupons I had left (I think it's 2, but don't want it to be 1) and B) what other offers there will be this month....

All of the DLC shows up here for me:

https://social.biowa...ntitlements.php

I don't think you can check it on Origin itself.


Okay, I see a bunch of Dragon Age DLC there (as well as a bunch of Mass Effect 2 and Dragon Age II DLC, which is odd since I don't own the games) I must have successfully redeemed. It's not a *big* deal if I didn't, because I'm just backing up from my Steam keys.

This Dragon Age stuff is confusing and really needs a FAQ or wiki or something.


This.

The latter you can get free here.


I didn't even know about this! Thanks! I assume this is all in the Steam version...

And the DLC key you are required to redeem at Bioware (now you login with your Origin info) here: https://social.biowa...redeem_code.php

If this is wrong someone correct it but this is what I had done to the best of my recollection.


I redeemed the DLC key through the Origin client, which is what prompted me to ask the question in the first place. If I try to redeem on the Bioware site, it tells me the key is already redeemed.

@TONY

Hey, Thanks to Lego LOTR I finally got my wife to play video games with me, and now she wants to play all of the other games. Any chance the editors could choose a lego bundle that activates on steam?
Currently looking to sell or trade: Duke Nukem Forever Complete Pack, Borderlands GOTY, Mafia 2, and more all activate on steam. PM me with offer.

That's a good deal. I already own the older games working on Windows 7 with community patches (they were all released for free download awhile back by EA), and Command & Conquer 3, which was the main one I'm interested in from the series.

But for $12 for all of these already patched to work on modern computers is a killer deal.

I'm not really sure on the redeeming on Origin part. When I did it it was before the Bioware/Origin account mergers so they weren't cross populating or really talking to each other and I actually had to redeem through Bioware.

I think now you can do it on either or and it will populate over but not 100% sure on that point.

I also noticed that the Bioware social account will let you redeem DLC for games you don't own. For example I grabbed a key from Alienware for an M-90 Indra sniper rifle for ME3 and it let me redeem it to Origin and shows up on my Bioware social account although I do not own ME3.

Actually based on that recent experience I'm going to go ahead and say that redeeming Bioware DLC on Origin now does seem to populate it over to the Bioware site.

Wait, did you redeem the code through Origin? Isn't that the way of losing the key? I've read it a few pages back, and even in the Amazon description page it's stated:

"The DLC Registration Code must be activated from within the game and requires a BioWare account. From the title screen select "Downloadable Content".
Only the base game code will activate through Origin."

Take a look at this post: HERE

Yeah, I thought about that. ;)
but I'm sure some folks got it if they wanted to so it probably helped a few folks. I don't think everyone refreshes the EC list or re-checks it often. If Crusader Kings ever goes to 9.99 again, I'll remember to PM Longshot before posting it. :)

My earlier comment was more where I didn't think 11.99 was that great a deal even though there are a lot of games in this pack so they should have price matched to begin with.

That's probably because C&C is just not my genre of game so maybe any price is a bit high for me. I just figure people would play Starcraft instead due to being more "gamer league" type...It's also EA...nice to see it coupon eligible for a few hours at least.

You get CK2 and like 5 other games for $10.

On the main page of Game Downloads... it still shows in the top left hand corner under Featured - The Darksiders Franchise Pack for $13.19 and Saint's Row The Third Complete Pack for $12.49. Once you click the links though, they are full price. I know the sales have been over since yesterday but figured that someone should be aware so they can fix it.
