Lol, I have not used my origin client for a while. upon learning of the free bf3, I wanted to post the news first in the forums but somebody already posted ahead of me. :)

since I don't have the necessary hdd space for the installer/installation, I just 'grabbed' the game before the 4-day offer expires. bf3 is the third freebie I received from ea's origin (dead space 1, pvz 1, bf3)

It's very sweet and thoughtful of EA to do this (Sarcastic? Me? I'm appalled) but 20 gig is a lot for me to download on a 10 MB/s line. Anyway I might just take them up on the offer.

I tried downloding this but Origin just incredibly sucks. First I can't retrieve my password cause their email doesn't appear in my inbox, then I created a new account and Battlefield 3 download keeps popping up errors every minute, it's impossible to download it...Nothing works in that goddamn Origin.
