EA Origin: 50% Off Battlefield 4 + Savings on Other Battlefield Games

EA Origin: 50% Off Battlefield 4 + Savings on Other Battlefield Games

Get Battlefield 4, the hottest of the new hotness for only $29.99 from EA Origin!

This really is the hottest FPS out there right now. CoD: Ghosts is trying but in my professional opinion, it can’t compete. Which is why EA selling Battlefield 4 at such a deep discount is so awesome. It’s not like this game isn’t already selling a ton of copies!

There are actually three versions of the game on sale. Well, two really. I’ll explain after the jump.

The reason I say BF4 + Premium isn’t really on sale is because you’re still paying $50 for premium and $30.28 for the game so it’s basically the same as buying the game on sale then getting premium. This is, of course, a PC digital download so there is no shipping and even better, no waiting!

EA Origin Coupon Code: Get 50% Off

EA Origin loves you and is giving you 50% off just to prove it!

Click here to shop @ Origin.com

  • Coupon Code: LOVE
  • Discount: 50% Off
  • Expiry: 17th February 2014

Valentine’s Day is over but you can still show someone you love them by picking them up a video game. You can love your wallet by getting it for 50% off! You don’t often see storewide sales like this with Origin and when you do, you rarely see them for this much off. Unfortunately it doesn’t apply to everything in the store. I don’t really know which ones though. It applied to Battlefield 4, which is fairly new and selling like nuts. Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag, however, isn’t covered by this coupon code. Not sure why.

But it isn’t just BF4 and AC4, it’s games like Plants Vs. Zombie, Peggle, Feeding Frenzy 2, Monopoly and Bejeweled 3. All those casual games you play on your phone can be enjoyed on your PC (and sometimes Mac) as well when you get them through EA Origin. There are tons of great older games that you can pick up as well. All the Sim City games, Dead Space, The Walking Dead, The Sims 3 and all it’s expansions.

A lot of people don’t like EA because they’ve bought up a lot of the big game studios but when it comes to sales like this it’s nice that companies like Maxis have been subsumed in to EA.

All the games are Digital Downloads so you don’t have to worry about shipping.

EA Origin: The Sims 10th Anniversary Sale – FREE Town Stuff Pack + Up to 75% off The Sims 3 Games

Posted by on February 5, 2014 at 6:00 PM

EA Origin: The Sims 10th Anniversary Sale   FREE Town Stuff Pack + Up to 75% off The Sims 3 Games

EA made my wife happy with free expansion and 50% off The Sims 3 games and expansions on Origin!

Seriously. My wife was having kind of a crappy day until I noticed this. I grabbed her laptop and got the free Town Life Stuff pack. It hasn’t showed up yet since it apparently takes them 72 hours to transfer the bits from their servers to my wife’s computer but it’s free so I can’t complain right? So to brighten her day a bit more, she is going to pick up another expansion for 50% off. Not sure which one yet but she has a lot to pick from.  They aren’t all 50% off but almost all of them are. You can pretty much pick any expansion/stuff pack.

And if you haven’t picked up The Sims 3 yet, get out of my house. Or pickup The Sims 3 for 75% off! It’s only $4.99. Normally it’s $19.99 so you’re saving $15. Of course the main game is cheap so you’ll pick up an expansion too.

It’s kind of crazy that The Sims has been around for 10 years. It just seems like so long ago. 10 years. Makes me feel old. I remember picking up The Sims when it first came out. I had loved SimCity for years so a lower level version of that was very intriguing. I enjoyed it but I didn’t love it. For whatever reason it seems to appeal heavily to the women in my life. My wife and her sister both love and play it . My Mom even played it for a bit. I always liked building the houses and getting the stuff but not so much the simulated life stuff.

This is a PC or Mac Digital Download so you don’t pay shipping. The free game can take up to 72 hours to show up so keep refreshing!

EA Origin: Up to 50% off The Sims games and Discounts on Other Games

EA Origin: Up to 50% off The Sims games and Discounts on Other Games

Celebrate Simsmas with up to 50% off The Sims 3 and its various expansions!

This sale is timed perfectly for me. My wife loves The Sims and I am a bit behind on Christmas shopping. So maybe we’ll make an expansion pack or two an early Christmas gift. I’m going to guess that my wife isn’t alone in loving The Sims 3, and that I’m not the only person who is a little behind on gift giving for said wife. I made the mistake of telling my wife about the sale so if I buy an expansion for her she’s going to know and is going to want to play it. I should have shut up, bought the expansions and the downloaded and installed it after she went to sleep on Christmas Eve. Oh well.

The best deals here are The Sims 3 plus expansion packs. For example, The Sims 3 plus Island Paradise. It’s normally $39.99 but at 50% off you get it for only $19.99. That gives you The Sims 3 and the expansion. If you were to buy them separately with this sale they would cost you $24.99. If you already own The Sims 3 of course buying the expansions on their own make the most sense. They are anywhere from $9.99 to $14.99 depending on how new they are.

No shipping as these are digital downloads. No need to check the mail on Christmas Eve looking for a gift!

EA Origin: Only $5 for Battlefield 3 (PC)

Posted by on June 14, 2013 at 7:30 PM

EA Origin: Only $5 for Battlefield 3 (PC)

You, the consumer, voted and told EA that you wanted Battlefield 3 for only $5 so you got it!

Battlefield 4 is coming out in a few months and you had better be ready. The pros are gonna be out in force for this one and you don’t wanna get pwnd like a n00b right out of the gate, right? The best way to do this is pick up Battlefield 3. BOOM! HEADSHOT!

I’ve noticed a lot of game companies doing this as of late. A few months before a big new game comes out they release the previous game for super cheap. It’s a great tactic because it gives you a little time to get in to it so when the new one comes out, you immediately need to go pick it up. Now in this case EA let people vote on which game they wanted to see on sale so it may not have been a pre-emptive sale but you never know, right?

Regardless of the reason, you’re getting a $19.99 game for $5! You’re saving $15. There is, of course, no shipping as this is a digital download PC game,

What upcoming sequel game are you excited for? Do you have the previous game in the series? If you don’t, would you grab it for $5 or just wait for the new one? Let me know in the comments below!

Origin Spring Sale: 50% Off Video Games Site-Wide

Posted by on March 12, 2012 at 1:30 PM

Origin Spring Sale: 50% Off Video Games Site Wide

The EA online store, more commonly known as “Origin,” are having their spring sale! In this sale, they’re offering loads of video games at half price.

The Origin Spring sale offers 50% off site-wide: plenty of opportunities for super video game bargains.

Now, even though these games will ship from the US, you’ve still got the potential to get some super bargains. I did a test order for Battlefield 3 for the Xbox 360 for only $29.99, and Canadian shipping was only $2.50.  But I believe shipping is free if you spend $39 or more.

There are also some titles on PC digital download, so you don’t have to worry about shipping on those at all. For example:

My favourite game of last year was Portal 2, which you can get for $29.99 on Xbox 360 or PS3 (PC Version is not discounted!). I played this game co-op with my partner, and it was really great fun. We did have a few loud arguments during gameplay though, but it was all part of the fun!

What games are you ordering?

Canadian shipping is only $3.50, which is really reasonable.

If you’re looking for some Christmas gifts for game lovers, this is a great day to get them!

Portal 2 is a brilliant game, one of the best I’ve played in the last year. It’s funny to think that it was only a little add-on game in the Half Life Orange Box, but it was so popular that Valve increased it to a full game in and of itself. My fiancé and I were playing it co-op when we got it a few months ago. It led to a few arguments across our home office… YOU stand there! YOU shoot! DON’T MOVE!!

I’m planning on getting Arkham City too. I played the Batman Arkham Asylum game on my PC, and I had a lot of fun with it. If I get Arkham City, I will be buying a joypad for use on the PC though, as I found the PC controls a little annoying when I was playing it. It’s designed for joypad fun.
