EA, pick up your god damn support “phone” will ya!?

Wanted to play some NFS Hot Pursuit 2010. People used to play this online even even a year ago so I wanted to give it a shot again because it’s so fun doing insane speed slides through corners. And all the fun ended when game displayed this to me when I wanted to fucking activate it using my original Limited Edition key found on the back of the game booklet…


Well, you don’t say!? When did I fucking do that EA, eh? When? I might have wasted 1 or 2 activations because I forgot to deactivate it before formatting the system, but I sure haven’t fucking wasted 5 of them. Moronic De-Authorization tool of course doesn’t work, because you have to use it on the system where game was installed and activated. Which I don’t have anymore because I’ve bought a whole new system. I even wanted to add the game to Origin, because I’ve used same Origin account to login to NFS Hot Pursuit 2010 AutoLog and thought the server will figure out it’s the same serial and add it anyway. Nope. Can’t do that. The game has been already used on another system. Yes, my god damn fucking system.

But fine, I’ll contact EA and let them sort it out…


Do you want to know for how long I’m trying to contact them? For 7 fucking days. SEVEN! In the evenings, in the morning and no one fucking picks up the live support request. It’s like everyone left EA support department and couldn’t be bothered to give a note on a fucking webpage. The fucking webpage says expected waiting time is 5 minutes. I’ve waited for hours in total across several days and no fucking response. I’m still waiting at the very same popup above as I’m typing this rant…

It was hard to dig out this contact and after constant failure, I wanted to send them a written support inquiry through e-mail or shit. Yeah right, can’t even find that shit. Live chat seems to be the only way and no one fucking seems to work behind it. At all. I don’t give a fuck if the game is 5 years old, I paid for it and I want to fucking play it. And I can’t because of the fucking moronic retarded DRM. This is exactly why I don’t have UPlay and this is exactly why I don’t buy ANY games from Ubisoft since they introduced this shit. And frankly, I haven’t bought many EA games either for the very same reason. If I have to buy a game, my first stop is either GOG because it’s DRM free and I’ll NEVER experience such retarded shit or it’s Steam, because even though it’s DRM by itself, it at least fucking works and they have a support that actually fucking answers the inquiries.

Btw, if anyone happens to know any way to contact EA in any other way than this fucking dumb “live chat”, please let me know down below so I can play this god damn game already…

SimCity 2000 SE for free!

ea-origin-logoGood morning everyone (unless if you’re not from Central Europe, in which case, happy Easter!). Today, nice people at EA are giving away yet another classic, this time around it is Simcity 2000 Special Edition. I don’t think it needs any further description except that it is a grand daddy of all city construction games in which you can make towns, cities, make them successful or burn them down to the ground with tornados, fires, riots and aliens. Aliens! 😀

You can grab the game here:

I can’t find the end date for this giveaway, so grab it before it’s too late!


Plants vs Zombies Game of The Year Edition for Free

Wow, EA at it again. In a positive way! After free Battlefield 3, here comes the all time classic Plants vs Zombies. A cartoonish 2D arcade game with plants defending the garden against zombies. And it’s WAY better than their latest 3D Garden Warfare nonsense. That one is nowhere near as good as this original. And best of all, it even works on Windows tablets with full touch control. I’m playing it all the time on my ACER Iconia W4.



This awesome deal will last till 2014-06-16. Make sure you grab it because it’s just awesome! Only on EA Origin.

Have fun!

Battlefield 3 now free!

Like with Dead Space few weeks ago, EA has been generous again. This time with a free copy of Battlefield 3 through Origin client.



And enjoy! I’ve bought this game when it was released and despite never playing multiplayer portion of it, I really enjoyed the single player. Graphics and sound effects were very good, interesting worlds and action and it was decently long. And now that it’s free, you just can’t go wrong with it (if you haven’t yet played it). I don’t know what happened at EA for them to be so generous all of the sudden to give away pretty much new games, but hey, who cares. Bring us more of this good stuff! 😀


Dead Space game free on Origin

Grab it while you can! I have no clue how long this deal will last, but it is a great deal, so don’t hesitate.



Dead Space is one hell of a game with fantastic graphics, dark atmosphere, amazing story and can easily be marked as spiritual successor to games like System Shock 2 with all the weapons and abilities upgrades, inventory, purchasing system and interaction with the world. It’s a truly amazing experience that you’ll never forget. You can trust me on that!
