On the House

Bejeweled 3 is Origin's latest On the House freebie

Is it just coincidence that "three" rhymes with "free," and Bejeweled 3 is now free through Origin's On the House program? The answer, obviously, is yes, it's a complete coincidence. But so what? It's free!


Wing Commander 3: Heart of the Tiger goes free on Origin

It's hard to be too critical of anything that's free, assuming that the free thing in question isn't actually doing you harm. So even though I'm not a big fan of Wing Commander 3: Heart of the Tiger, I can recommend it right now because it's free—"On the house," you might say—and it's probably not going to set your PC on fire.

Starting today, the publisher will choose one older game from its library and offer it On the House, a new Origin category for games available free of charge. First up: Visceral's disturb-tastic Dead Space.
