    To all you who got the free games on Origin

    Just a PSA, but EA is apparently not banning people who got the games, someone on Facepunch called in about it. This is because, for one, it would be a PR nightmare, and two, people who only redeemed one or two are not in the wrong and should supposedly be keeping them.

    However, I am hearing talk of wiping off the free games from those who got about 5+ games. If you want to keep any of them, install them immediately. Origin uses a modified .exe and if you downloaded them, you should still be able to launch them with your serial code.


    I still have no real confirmation on the actual wiping of the games, though. Anyone got any sources on this? I'd love to know if I'm keeping 20 games or not.

    I can't seem to find anything officially on the matter myself. I sent in an email asking about it.

    Since you 'purchased' the games (albeit with a coupon that made them cost $0.00), doesn't that make them your property and thus illegal for them to take away from you?

    Money grubbing whores not putting something about it being their property and you just have the license? Even GFWL does that with like, 5 installs per game purchase.

    No idea, the only games that I felt were worth 'purchasing' were Dragon Age 2 and Dead Space 2.

    I only wanted to see where the story went, and after an hour or two of it, I have to agree.

    General consensus was that the reviewers were either paid off or blinded by nostalgia. 82/100 on metacritic, that's such bullshit.

    Well if we take a look at Mass Effect 3 and Dragon Age 2, we can realize that Bioware is little more than EA RPG. Even the Bioware co-founders quit recently.

    As for me, I've started playing the Dragon Warrior/Dragon Quest series, and I gotta say, older JRPGs have a place in my heart.

    Apparently Medal of Honor keys aren't working for Multiplayer. Enter serial codes ASAP if you want online features for any of your games.
