Metal of Honor: Pacific Assault free on Origin
Once claimed, it's yours.  Dunno for how long.  Is this a thing with Origin?  Like Games with Gold on XBox?  Haven't signed into Origin in forever (2012?)

Re: Metal of Honor: Pacific Assault free on Origin
Yes, EA has been doing this "On the house" thing for some time now. They've been putting mostly old games on there and it's a genuine "claim once keep forever" deal.

Let there be stars and let there be you
Let there be monsters and let there be pain
Let us begin to feel again

Through On The House I've picked up several games that I never would have bought.  Looking at Origin, Steam, and GOG game lists, as well as my bookshelf, I think I am a game collector more than a game player.
Maybe someday God will give you a little pink toaster of your own.

Oh, I can go for some old-school shooter right now :) thanks for the heads-up

Re: Metal of Honor: Pacific Assault free on Origin
Origin remains a terrific non-investment.  I haven't given a penny to EA yet have more than a dozen titles to show for it. :D

I know and feel your pain.  And that's without counting books/animu/whatever, too. :(

Re: Metal of Honor: Pacific Assault free on Origin
The sad thing is that I've collected most of these but have yet to actually play nearly any of them. I keep forgetting Origin exists when I go looking for something new to play...
