I bought three games and it took off on the two cheapest ones. It took $3 off of Skate 3 and $7 off Dante's Inferno.


Ahh ... thats why. It's not only taking $10 off. It's throwing out the current discount and applying a flat $15 off each games MSRP.

Ae you sure it worked for you? I mean it just took $15 off MSRP for me. So if I applied my recyclebank code to skate 3 ($18) and Dante($11) the new prices are $15 and $5 respectively which equals MSRP - $15 for either game. Unless you got Skate 3 for $3 and Dante's for free I'm guessing it does not work.

Gotcha. Well that came out a much better deal for those two games then. But what discount was applied had to be whichever was better because I still got NFS:HP for 23.99 rather than the 24.99 I would have paid with the $15 off.

Anyone had old $20 code that is not working? I was told it doesn't expire. They were only 1 month old, yet it shows up as code invalid.


This happened to me as well with a code i bought from someone here - maybe try calling CS to see if they'll replace it

Kind of want Mass Effect 2 @ $23.99, but I think I can hold off until it goes to $20. I'd have to pick another game if I buy now, and pay tax too.

Maybe there will be another drop for ME:2 when the third one comes out.

I talked to them they said they no longer give away nor use $ off coupon. Only % off coupon. And I got pissed because I had 3 that's now useless. The best they could do was giving me 3 20% off coupon. Unbelievable. I was saving it for EA Inside Deals.

$23 for ME2 on PS3 is really nice, but this deal needs a free shipping code to top it off. Could buy DA:0 ultimate for PS3 as well, then easily sell it on Ebay for $18. That would bump me up to free shipping at $40. Hmmmmm....

Mirror's Edge for $5 sounds good. Anyone play this with the 360 controller? How does it play out on PC?

For those in the know, how much more value does Dragon Age Ultimate Edition add over the original, and would it be worth buying if I own the original release (I think it comes with that golem DLC as well). As an example, I held out for Fallout 3 Game of the Year, but I actually ended up playing very little of the DLC because the base game was plenty big and I had my fill by the time I had played through most of it. I've been playing through Dragon Age origins recently, and it too seems pretty big...

This one appears to be missing now?? I can't seem to find it on the page...?

C&C The First Decade is showing as $20 now; Wasn't it on the $5.00 sale page earlier?

Wow I might have to buy some of those C&C games for $5. Def getting the first decade one though.

Awakening adds quite a bit of gameplay. It's worth getting since I think Awakening goes for about $20 on its own. As far as Fallout 3 goes, most of the DLC was worth playing. If you haven't gone back to play it, you should. Operation Anchorage has a shitty story, but there are some great perks (the stealth suit, for one). The Pitt was alright, but no good equipment. Broken Steel and Point Lookout both add a great amount to the story, and they are amazing. The last DLC (the alien one, the name escapes me) was pretty bad, though.

Does anyone know if the battlefield 2 servers or the 2142 servers are full enough to justify buying either game? I have a hard copy of bf2... but couldnt run it at the time.

I thought that only applied to the physical games. Not the download ones.

UE is pretty underwhelming. The DLC is categorically bad. They can be fun if you enjoy DAO, I enjoyed all of them but the horrible dwarf one, but they are still bad. Awakenings is pretty much the same, fun but not particularly satisfying. About 15 hours of gameplay, gameplay being your character running around decimating everything because they don't even pretend to balance classes beyond level 20.

For me the core game was about 60 hours, Awakenings near 18, and the DLCs somewhere between 1-3 each. But they aren't good. At all. The best is the golem one, which you already own.

Thanks horsewarrior... and thanks afarewell2arms as well. I guess it sounds like to me with my huge backlog that the core game is enough for me since I already own it. From your hour breakdown, it certainly sounds like it gives you the bulk of the experience.

Yea both are still pretty active all the time. Like any older games, there are busier times such as nights and weekends, and some days can have almost nothing going (particularly in 2142).

In summation, both have their dedicated fanbases and regularly gain new players, if not daily. If you are into battlefield, I would say they are worth WAY more than asking price.

If you pick up 2142, pm me, and I will play some rounds with you (i still pick it up once or twice a week)

Just spent an hour playing with the 360 controller. Plays great, no issues whatsoever and the game still looks amazing.

I am getting an error message saying "payment authorization failed." I am using the EA wallet since I have credit from an EA screw up in the past.

Is anyone else getting this error?

Anyone have an EA promo code that they don't want? Debating picking up 2 or 3 games.

Tempted by DA2 as well, but I know I'd just end up buying it again when its packaged with DLC.

I just spent an hour dragging a boat up a mountain for a trophy. What have I become...

 

Now just play a really piece of shit game and then complain about it until (and well after) you get the plat.

I got this last time I tried to place an order, 2 weeks ago and they still have it unresolved.

So I bought SimCity4 deluxe. Do I get a NFS game free? Is it all sales or just for the console ones? Because I don't see it in my Origin now.
