    Thank you very much for the heads up. I won't buy any games on Origin but I will certainly take the ones EA offers for free.

    Also there is whole bunch of games you can register you game keys on Origin. Even games bought on Steam.

    Jesus but the Origin interface absolutely sucks. The site itself is so damn slow too. I would never use it were not for ME3.

    Oh, and Red Alert 3 now I guess. Thanks Devil

    Cool. Free games are always good. I'm trying Simcity 4. Thanks dude.


    Edit: Might be better if I could get Origin to work. :(

    Thanks a lot for this, but this shit seems to be really bugged. Store is so slow I don't think I'm going to get it to open at all.

    Edit: Won't work for me. Am I supposed to type in the code in the Promo Code section of the Shopping Basket screen?
    Yeah, won't work.

    Hah, same. You're not in the US, are you? It seems to be area restricted.

    It is area restricted, but when I registered on EA a year or two ago I put that my residence is in US. Looking at my Origin profile now, it still says so.
    Not sure how it all works, but I guess that's the problem...somehow.

    Oh well... I'm not interested in most of this games anyway, just wanted to get DA2.

    Regardless, thanks to DevilTakeMe.

    Fixed it. Sure the software sucks but it is a free game. Worth playing and then uninstalling after a while.

    A free game is free game. Just get a game from the list and never use origin or the game ever if you want.

    Edit: And it's dead, people found a way to get every game on the list for free.
