The two accounts are not linked via email, and the emails are completely different. Origin is known for scanning for other folders, what it does with it is beyond me besides locating other EA games via registry or folders. MoH was uninstalled off my computer months ago, and was not installed on my current drive. It was installed on my storage drive.

Yea thats what I mean. I dont understand why it wouldve have given me all the games that they have published which I own through steam. This kind of crap makes me nervous about purchasing ME3, granted I havent had any problems but you never know.

Obiviously you guys havent read NEWS at all, like this http://www.overclock.net/t/1072635/pcg-ea-steam-keys-can-be-activated-on-origin

YOU ALREADY OWN THAT GAME, and origin has scanned it and now you can launch it throug origin. Simple as that or then you have alzheimers biggrin.gif

Sorry for bump, but when i logged on to origin today, i noticed that I've got two Medal Of Honors in my games list. They have the same serial, so i don't know what happened. thumb.gif

Hmmm...I wonder where the Origin does not scan unauthorized folders legion members are. wink.gif

Just an update I got Spore now too on my Origin account. Never bought this game in my life. So I guess this is an opportunity to play the game for free smile.gif
