  • Steam is perfect. EA is wasting money with Origin and it seems like they think way too highly of their PC gaming market... Which consists of...ME and DA... Gotta wonder how long Bioware sticks with them...

      Do they give them to everyone who does that?

        that said, if you can, find a retailer selling them, and go check them out in person. i don't tend to find a lot of noticeable difference between same-level lcds (assuming, of course, that you're not buying some bizarre off brand). *shrug*
        Looks more and more like I'm going with that one. No retailers selling it near me though :( So I'm going off specs and word of mouth alone. The 24 inch Samsung is still in play too though, just wish they made the same thing in a 27 for a competitive price with Viewsonic.

          I believe so. I don't know if there are limited keys, but after going to that website and logging in they will give you a key. You enter that key on Origin and then start the download.

          Looking at that website again, it skips step 1: invitation by going to that link. I don't know if it is suppose to work openly.

            I did this and it came up saying I was not able to do it. So it must be limited.

            1. Login to EA of your account
            2. Add the games of battlefield series (i added BF2, BF1942)
            3. Add BF3! i did this because it was there
            4. Explore around the Origin Site (i did this but don’t know if it’s related)
            when i did this, within 3 days i got my invite… i think the age of the account, the games you bought over the years and what your interests/jobs are (if in IT i think they think that you understand tech stuff) is part of the invite process
            this is what i did, you can try too so don’t get angry if it doesn’t work.
            Please note i only have added Battlefield games on my EA account so i don’t know if this also makes a difference.
            P.S i don’t think it’s against the rules to post when i did which MAY get your an invite.

                • Anyone here have Amnesia: The Dark Descent? Thinking about getting it.

                    • I really wish Bioware wouldn't taunt us like this. Normally by now we would have a release date.

                      Now is the time to try and steal some of the hard core WoW fans away. They just have to strike while the other side is wounded.

                      • I think Blizzard is going to release Diablo 3 when TOR is released. I have a feeling.

                        • They are claiming that it is to be released in 2011... Which would suck. I wouldn't know which one to play.

                          • Diablo 3 apparently wont be able to be played without an internet connection

                            • Yes, there is no offline/single player mode anymore.

                                I'll play TOR at release and check out D3 later when I'm done leveling/doing that stuff.
