Got an extra $20 ~ What FPS to buy? - Page 3

post #21 of 38
Mirror's Edge for sure played that game for hours on end on my 360. I got 3 stars on every time trial except for one or two. So much fun.

lots of people are still playing regular bad company 2, vietnam is just a nice add-on, which you can buy further down the line.


about mirrors edge... i know that you can activate most recent EA games on the EA download manager and download it from them.

so you could buy ME from steam, get the CD Key from steam, register it on EADM and then buy the DLC.
its a bit of hussle but that way you can play the DLC.

i have burnout paradise on steam, and i activated it on the EADM. i belive it would work, but dont quote me on that.

im not sure if it would work. i can try and activate my retail mirrors edge on EADM to see if it would work (if you are interested).


anyhow, i really believe Bad Company 2 (with or without vietnam) is a better purchase just because of its replay value, but mirrors edge is also great. so buy whatever you feel like playing.

BTW: there is a bad company 2 MP demo on PSN

I decided i'm in the mood for something different. So how do i get the key from the Mirror's Edge before i accidently use it up on steam instead?

Sounds like a masterful idea

BFBC2 is pretty cheap. there's the DLC but you can just buy that when you have more money i guess?

don't get CS:S unless you plan on taking some time to get good at it.

where are you buying the game from?

i was assuming you where buying it on steam.

if you are, once you have bought the game on steam, you get the CDkey and register it on EADM. registering a cdkey on EADM will allow you to download the game from EA, which has a DLC compatible version, then you just buy the DLC.


thats the theory, i dont know if it will work for sure.

i have registered a game from steam on EADM (burnout paradise), but its up to you if you want to try out.

you could also ask someone that already owns the game on steam to try and register it on EADM, that way you will know for sure if it works or not.

Will try this for sure! Just bought it on steam. Also, this thread (on the last page) i think pretty much proves that you can. How do i acquire the CD-Key is my question though?

steam will provide you the key so you can introduce it the first time you launch the game.

ill post a screenshot for where you have to look for it (dont know how to explain it any better)

EDIT:


although its in spanish the layout will be the same for you.
the red circle shows where you should click to get the CDKey.
