All games I had on GoG that had an upgrade like that I got for free, the keyword is having ALL DLC from Vanilla. At least Bethesda did the same thing with Skyrim, I believe that is a good marketing move because seriously, I can play both games upgraded, but in case of Skyrim, teh Vanilla with Mods is still superior.

Funny thing about 4K graphics, Fallout will have that upgrade too in 2 years or so :D

While I appreciate Bethesda to do fully moddable games like Fallout 4 and Skyrim, I would actually appreciate it more if they took more debugging time, considering Fallout 4 was in development since 2009 (when they sued Interplay and stole Fallout 4 data and used it for their Fallout 4 game.) considering the game had a few serious bugs and the annoying never ending Minuteman quests (seriously are they ever done ? cuz I think I done like 2000 of them already and every time I complete something I have to save someone again, I think I'll just depopulate everything and see if it works)

Have these keys when I bought 3 of a Dollar Mega Bundle from Bundle Stars. I had the two sets of keys posted on FB but I'm not sure who were the people who claimed keys. I also couldn't verify this on Steam 'cause I only get "Product already owned" instead of "Duplicate Keys"

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

Yeah...but you have to install Origin to run it.

So, is it REALLY 'free'?

:P

Is there THAT much difference between Origin and Steam?

Many, actually. Both are distributor, have friends, chat, and overlay function. Both are also free to use provided that you own a game on their platform. Steam, however, requires you to make at least 10USD purchase before your account is fully activated.

AFAIK, what Origin don't have are those communities, groups, badges, custom profile pages, Big Picture, VR games, hardware surveys, user reviews, mobile app, library sharing, in-home streaming, logging in on multiple device (else, In-home Streaming would be useless), video streaming service (EA uses Twitch), forums (EA has forums of their own, but usually for EA games and Origin).

So, yeah. There is that much difference between Steam and Origin.

One is run by Megatron while the other is run by Satan.

Sure, both are bad, but once is active in the way he goes about it.


I have a rather 'hate hate' relationship with EA, given how many companies and franchises they've helped kill.

I have never used either of them, therefore I cannot comment on it.

Does Origin still scanning your computer for illegal software when you are not looking ?

Not sure. I always leave my task manager open. All the time, I never saw any drive activity while Origin is open. Even if they scanned it, they won't find pirated EA games.

Thanks, man.

Thanks for this one. I tried this just to see, seems no one had taken it yet. :)

If someone comes across a Shadow Of Mordor Key, or DA collection... :)

So Atlas Reactor just went f2p on Steam. Already played 15 hours in 2 days... This game is awesome.

If anyone wants to play I have a code that unlocks all heroes for 7 days: ZNCMT6GKFE27KDR2RXW7

Also my IGN is KaiFaust#7522. Hit me up! :police:

For many multiplayer games it is not exactly a good sign.

Depending on how they plan to deal with it, probably microtransactions for skins and shit, I like how it goes in HotS, although I wouldn't call those "microtransactions" the content is actually worth the price most of the time, although I only have like 6 skins bought, and I can't really play Jaina without Flame Festival dress.

Yeah they went more LoL-like with the model. You get a lot of in game currency from dailies and other quests, use those to buy heroes. You can alternatively buy the heroes outright. There are also loot crates every level similar to Overwatch that give avatars/skins/backgrounds and stuff that you can buy, but you don't really need to since you get so many. It is a decent model.
