This Gib is actually gonna be a quickie (like I’ve always meant them to be), because I’ve few waffles to make (read: rubbish to say) – Plants vs. Zombies on Origin is free, On The House! Much like the last time, except not sidelined by BF3. Hooray!
I’ve yet to actually play my free copy of PvZ since getting it last time and my only experience with the title is from a pirated version of old. It was good fun then, though I found it wore thin for me sooner than it did for others.
And, referring to the “Special” part of the title, Origin’s also having themselves a Great Games Sale! “Get up to 75% off select titles” the page says. I scrolled through the selection, averting my eyes to avoid temptation, and there are some nice deals going. I may well get Dragon Age: Origins – Awakening to complement the free Dragon Age: Origins I got some time back and round out my Dragon Age experience (when I finally get to it…).
Or: Battlefield 3 is free! On Origin! Until 03 June 2014!
Continuing with the trend of blatantly copying what I report here from NAG Online, anyone (with an Origin account) can now get Battlefield 3 on PC for the high, high cost of absolutely nothing (unless you count data for the 19GB (!) download…)! Not only that, but right now you can totally still get the thing-I-forgot-to-report for mere clicks too, which is Plants vs. Zombies GOTY Edition (PC and Mac)! Until 16 June 2014! Huzzah! More freeness and things!
Of course, you’ll still need to get yourself Battlefield 3’s Premium pack if you want ALL the (Battlefield 3) things, but, at least locally, the vanilla base game is pretty much all that’s being played online now anyway so one might as well wait until that’s on sale/free.
Thanks, NAG Online!
