I was all excited when I got my BF3 Alpha invite and then spent two hours that night never actually getting into a game. I tried the next day with no luck and they've since shut down the servers. Oh well. The boards were raging bitchfests anyhoo.

Well, on the bright side, I just got this email from EA:

Thanks for being a part of the Alpha Trial for Battlefield 3™. Now that the Alpha Trial has ended, all server access will be turned off until we launch the Beta in September. Your participation and feedback will make Battlefield 3 a better game, and we're truly grateful for your help.

The Alpha Trial has been a resounding success. We were able to perform a number of server-related tests, including load testing our back end. Rest assured that any performance issues you may have seen at this early stage of development will be remedied for the full game launch. If you haven't already, please leave your feedback at Battlelog. Your insights and comments are essential to making the game as polished as possible.

As a special thank you for playing, we're offering Battlefield 3 Alpha Trial players a bonus PC digital download game when you pre-order Battlefield 3 Limited Edition at Origin. Hurry-this offer is only good for the next 3 days. See below for more details.

Thanks again for your contribution. We look forward to seeing you on the battlefield again this fall.

Interesting. I was in alpha and never got that email. Either way, Fuck pre-ordering on Origin. I'd rather have savings elsewhere than a free game any day.

I'm leaning toward getting Dead Space 2 cuz it's the one I don't have and I wanted it. No one seems to be offering any sales so far, and getting into the beta would be nice.

So I took advantage of this deal when active and my free copy of dead space 2. But then I got an email from Origin offering me a code for ANOTHER free game from those three. Anyone else get this email?
