    pop cap is giving away free codes for plants vs zombies


    why?​
    "This Halloween, the ADA and PopCap Games are redefining what a Halloween “treat” can be… by giving FUN instead of candy. We’re giving away Plants vs. Zombies™ download games as a sugar-free alternative, and you can join in the fun. "
    there only one down side and that is you must wait till oct. 30 to redeem them
    but dont wait too long because they expire on nov.10

    That's pretty cool, unfortunately now that they're owned by EA I can't allow myself to download it.
    To play this more than likely may require you to download and install Origin...

    Code is PEAH8R

    EDIT: Oh crap, RupeeClock pointed out a problem.. I was hoping to get this on Steam, if they make me download Origin, go screw them.

    It's probs going to be a direct download. Or at least that's how it was with their previous promos.

    If it's a direct download, no account registration, no Origin installation, just a totally unrestricted executable, I'll download it in a heartbeat and see what all the love is about.
    After all it's a game before the EA acquisition, so long as they haven't stuck their dirty little hands into it somehow.
    Heck, could be a great game for my mum to play on her compy.

    Whether it requires Origin or not, I think it's really cool of them to offer it for free. I'll try it since I already have Origin installed anyway

    They're giving the game away for free to promote a cause - can we dial back the complaints a bit?

    Well, could be interesting, but you know what, my country is the number 1 in using illegal stuffs, so this thing here does not impress my friends

    Looks like it's a direct download and does not require an Origin account.

    You can breathe a big old sigh of relief now.
