Default "On The House" Free AAA game every month [UPDATED]

About a month ago I posted EA was giving away Dead Space. Since then more details have emerged about this gift.

It seems they are planning on giving away 1 free AAA game each month. The chance to grab Dead Space expires on May 8th when a new free game will be added in its stead. I'll update post with details then.

Well, that's a tad underwhelming. New game is Plants vs Zombies.

June
June's Free game is BF3...Not bad EA, not bad.
That didn't last the whole month...Now Peggle.

My decision to not buy any games in 2014 is paying off.

Not that I need a bigger backlog, but still....

Did I miss something? Was EA taken over by another company? Why are they being nice?

I don't trust it.

Awesome find! I was just looking through forums at random seeing what's going on and found this.

Nope, they're just desperate to get people onto their failure of a distribution platform.

Ever since getting a year long sub to PS+, I've a long backlog of games to play on my Vita and PS3... and the inception of Humble Bundle has filled up my steam library.

I'm trying not to think too much on my Xbox 360 backlog.... I've yet to finish any game I've gotten with my Gold sub.

Edit: Oh, actually, I think I've played through World of Keflings. No DLC though.

At this point I'd put it ahead of Steam.


Steam is just bloated with crap.
