[Origin] Crysis for a buck. 24hrs only. Be quick!

31 posts in this topic

That might be a good reason to try Origin client again.

The first and only time i used it to buy a game the game was not added to my games list. After i downloaded and installed the game i had to start it outside of the client and as far as the client goes there was no trace of me buying the game.

It appears that is for US only.

I live outside the US and the link redirected me to the front page... but using a proxy I was able to "see" the special ;)

I live in the Dominican Republic and I had to use the proxy -- so I guess is limited to a "selected set of countries"...

Origin isnt that bad. it's not nearly as polished as Steam, but a lot younger. I bought some DLC through Origin recently, and it was painless.

Looks like it's over. I just connected via a US VPN and checked, it lists it at $20 now. :(

Everyone and their mother has a game store with a mandatory application that has to run while gaming.

Anywho, the offer I get is both Crysis games for 5 Euro each.

The link brings me to the home page. Can't even find anything but Crisis 3 when searching. It seems every time I try something with Origin it's a bad experience.

By use of a proxy I managed to get to the checkout but it wanted billing information, PayPal and my Debit Card both didn't like the fact that my only country options were AU and New Zealand. :s

I just re-installed Origin but the game is 5$ ... well since i played it already i'll pass. For 1$ it would have been interesting to replay the game before Crysis 3 but not at 5$.

Origin improved but the road to Steam is still really really long. At least looks like they are working on it. Also 113MB of ram you got to be kidding me. Steam takes 25MB only close to 5 times less ...

At least the game i bought is now showing in my games list. The first time i tried Origin the game i bought was not even showing in my games list that was really fail.

They really need to improve the information page for the games. No achivements. No trailers. Few screenshots. No linked articles. No news. There's like nothing but a short marketing description of the game. It's bad when you need to visit the games web site before making a decision.
