Sell the key to buy some good games.

Trade the key for a Garrus body pillow.

A full set with a double sided Liara/Kasumi body, Samara and Tali head pillows, a Miranda throw pillow and Jack as of those kinky wedge shaped pillows and you got yourself a deal.  
 

Why didn't you get the Pinnacle Station during the free Origin sale?

I figured I'd get it later.  (Procrastination finally backfires.)
 

when you're done

Irrational advice needed.

I have the Mass Effect trilogy (bought seperately) on Origin already. I also have a Mass Effect Trilogy Origin key. Do I activate the key to acquire the only non-cosmetic DLC I'm missing (Pinnacle Station) even though it has never interested me in the slightest and is terribly cost ineffective, but is the only way to now get said DLC and I'm a Mass Effect addict. Or do I do something else with the key?


Don't give it to spoder

So, elder scrolls online is getting surprisingly solid reviews so far. I fully expected it to completely bomb based on what i'd heard beforehand, but it's at an 83/7.0 on metacritic right now.

 

Don't plan on buying it anytime soon, but still, interesting.

Critics were well paid.  Co-op Skyrim is what it is, which is fine... to an extent.  Subscriptions will dry up fairly soon.

Metacritic is the gold standard by which games are judged, and reviewers like IGN and Gamespot are the most trustworthy early reviewers in the business.

I don't remember complaining about DRM in my post.  ;)

 

Wasn't going to try to play it immediately, so no worries.

It's not bad.  It's nicely streamlined.  Launch isn't really make or break... staying power is.  What will the playerbase be in 3 months?

It rubs the lotion on it's skin or else it gets Bad Rats again.

Game's barely even launched (just today) and only 7 critics reviewed it (on the PC). Kinda early to call it on reviews here - since it's a MMO. I'd guess reviewers will fully review this soon - and likely, on real live servers players will be playing on.

 

EDIT:

Given what I played in the Beta that weekend a few weekends back, I think the real problem w/ ESO for many gamers is that it's not really a MMO, yet not really a Elder Scrolls SP game (and I doubt ESO will officially support mods or be "modded" like crazy, as well(. It's somewhere in the middle - tries to be a Jack of all Trades, but it's really a Master of NONE. And, oh yeah - the first 10 hours or so, it was overall quite mediocre and boring to me.

We don't play games on CAG; we backlog 'em. ;)

No wonder we have no time to play games!

All we do is keep buying games; run games idly for cards; keep backlogging games; & talk about games on CAG Forums + gaming forums like it.

Well, you know - ESO scores a 94% on PC Gamer, you know the fix is in. ;)

 

EDIT:

Well, I don't know how much ESO been overhauled since the Beta a few weekends back.

If ESO gets much better + more exciting after players get out of the first 10 hours, then I'll be damned.

{shrug}

But, it shouldn't take 10 hours for a game to decide if it wants to get good, TBH.

based on what little i've read, there's been improvement made since the beta

agreed on the ten hour thing though

They actually completely reworked the premise. It's a massive multiplaying online swimming simulator

I hate when I intend to play a game on friday evening but forget to install it before heading to the gym. Well, we'll try this again tomorrow Arkham Origins. I'll bring the beer.

I've heard that ESO will be a total Secret World killer.  True story.

Public Service Announcement:

 

The consensus on the BioShock series used to be -- don't worry too much about the order in which you play them as none of them will completely blow the story for the others. 

 

Forget all that now.

 

The new BioShock: Infinite DLC is spoilerific. The game offered to give me a quick refresher of the story and I chose YES (thinking it was a recap of the B:I story) and it proceded to blow the lid off of BioShock. 

 

No biggie to me since I've already played it, but I'd feel sorry for anyone taking the advice to play them out of order. Take heed!
