I don't suppose that those who win Dragon Age 2 through the outstanding AG competition are also eligible? :P

Not only do you get it for free but you get all the cerberus network downloads. My only qualm was the lenghty process of copying code after code from bioware to the EA downloader
Bah

They probably just looked at their accounts where people owned me2 and da2, realised there was a 90%+ correlation, and thought it would be a good cheap promotion for them.

heh yeh quite probably. Still - it's a good idea; getting people hooked on more brands for older titles makes sense at the moment as we're going through the brand name wars

You can't give it away either as it's tied to your Bioware account. I would expect they would give away ME2 with copies of ME3 as well to help encourage new people to the series.

yeah if you pre-order. get free me2 and me1 for $10 or something similar

Ditto Rav. If it wasn't tied to my BioWare account I would have offered it to anyone that wanted it. I would keep it but I bought ME2 during a cheap Steam special so don't need a second copy.

Give away the one you bought and keep the free one?

/not sure how Steam 'Give-away' works.

The expiry date of the offer almost connived me into paying full price, before I remembered that if I stuck to my original plan of buying DA2 when it was cheap and included the DLC, I could almost certainly get ME2 cheap too and probably come out better than this deal. Good old original plan, almost thwarted.

I've grabbed DA2 from G2play.net for $26AU, just gotta wait up to 72hrs from activation to make sure I get the Black Emporium (req'd to get the ME2 key).

If this works & I get both for $26 I'll be pretty stoked.

p.s. you can get much of the DA2 bonus items by playing the FB flash game DA Legends
Nerfington
Posted 06:45pm 06/4/11
Yeah but you have to play that game. :S

edit: And I mean I really tried too...

I'm hooked on that DA: Legends flash game, just seems to be the perfect thing to kill some time while I'm waiting for s*** to build or have a couple of minutes to kill throughout the day.

I noticed Bones is smashing it too, I keep getting notifications telling me his hero has levelled up. I took his hero into a fight though and got it killed, it should have used more backpunch.

Score! Found it quick and easy to get it.

Turns out you can give away your free ME2 code. the person getting the code just doesn't get the Cerberus network without.

I grabbed my free code and now have one to give away to anyone that wants a free copy of ME2. PM me for the code. First in first served and all that.

Posted 03:46pm 09/4/11
ive got a code too. will give it to the first person with a 100+ post count who pm's me

Posted 07:38pm 09/4/11
so should i play ME before ME2?
Spook
Posted 07:39pm 09/4/11
yes

Update: My key from g2play.net didn't have Black Emporium (the requirement to get ME2), but I used online chat with EA Support and they happily generated a key for me and I'm all sorted w/ full ME2 & Cerberus network.

Pretty stoked considering it cost about $26 all up

its better raider, i played me2 first then went back to me1
Mordecai
Posted 02:45pm 10/4/11
ME2 is not bad it's just not as good as ME1. BioWare took out a lot of your ability to truly customise your character with powers and stuff. One of the worst ideas was making ammo mods a "class power" and not all classes get access to all types.
