That is PR 101.

Too little, too late, if you ask me.


I personally cannot understand the major business ethics of EA but they're holding some of my favorite companies hostage (Bioware, Dice and Visceral). I like this because its a charity and secondly because its giving us a lot. These are games EA has definitely already profited off of and can afford to give away anyway.

I just got Battlefield, Dead Space, Mirrors Edge, Crysis 2, Dead Space 3 for much less than I could've paid on consoles, even at Gamestop. These are definitely around $200 worth of games.

My laptop is definitely far stronger than any of my current gen consoles. 


I agree.  I have been on an EA boycott for awhile now, but this was too good of a deal

This is the same way I feel about MS and outside of gaming industry Sony to a lesser extent. If they keep putting out the games I cannot deny them. I love my Mass Effect, Dragon Age, Halo, Battlefield and Sony exclusives.

I'm planning on buying this bundle even though I don't currently have a Windows machine that can run these games.

Some advice please: This will be my first Humble Bundle, and my first purchase on Origin. Is it best to redeem my codes immediately after purchase, or is it safe to wait until I'll actually be able to play the games?

I have no plan currently to buy a computer that could run these games, so they could easily be sitting in my account unplayed a year from now (or maybe even longer).

My codes from the first humble bundle are still there (2.5 years ago) so they are safe to store as long as you like.


Thanks. I realize now it was probably kind of a dumb question. Once I made my purchase and saw what was going on, I went ahead and redeemed my codes and registered the games in both my Steam and Origin libraries.

I know what you mean. I'm a fan of Bioware games, but i block EA on everything else.

My point is they cant buy our trust. They have to earn it.

Which is why you buy their games when its dirt cheap and pay the minimum.

Most of their games are like $20 to $40 individually on Origin store/Steam store but you can get all of them for just $5 which is pretty much a steal.

Exactly my point. :)



I think the redeem code registration has gone down because people raped the humble bundle, specifically on origin rather than Steam.

It still works if you click on what I told you to in the earlier post regardless of the message of the day.

I just downloaded Origin and it said redeems down when I came up, but now it works. Pretty funny, for some time EA was taken advantage of.
