A new freebie is available via the Origin client...

Mass Effect 2

This seems to come with all the DLC too I noticed when installing it.
Thanks. The ME series is one of my all time favorite 'want to play' things. Now I just need the first one, and an OS to run the second one. :P I was kinda hoping they would release a re-master for a modern console, and then I would likely just pick up that.

That's what I dislike on Origin: the DLCs are never on sale and you can only buy them from Origin directly... (unless someone knows how to get them cheaper, in which case I'd be glad for the tip!)
At least for newer games (e.g. the recent Battlefield games, Battlefront, or Titanfall 1), Amazon occasionally has deals on the Origin codes for the games' season passes. You usually can also buy Origin codes for individual DLCs from Amazon, but I don't think I ever seen these on sale.

Well, on a bright note if you wish list Dungeon Keeper on GOG you can get it for a song in a future sale I'm sure. It's cheap to begin with although it should be at this point.

Heh, turns out I already have it on GOG, I had forgotten, so no big loss to not also have it on Origin! Probably a freebie I got some time ago on GOG (otherwise it's $6, not that cheap for a 1997 game).


Correct me if I am wrong but I think they do ultimately release at least in some cases, complete GoTY editions of various titles but maybe they don't do this universally. As far as I know, Dragon Age Inquisition can be bought complete with all DLC now.

You're right, I didn't know but there's indeed DA Inquisition GOTY. And there's the older DA Origins Ultimate (basically a GOTY), I have that one. But nothing for DA II, nor for the Mass Effect games, alas...
