    I'm too busy with all the games I'm currently playing to take on any more, but it's a nice little event. Have fun, everyone!

    Strokes Daily said:i have a feeling battlefield 4 premium will be free soon. its been a few months since they added games or gave out dlc its also a safe bet the newest need for speed will be added. if hardline made it after 5 months need for speed will likely be added soon.I doubt Battlefield premium will ever be in the vault, its just too much DLC that they have been selling for $50 for so long. although I have been wrong on the speed of games being added to the vault, though, so you never know. I missed the last free period, but maybe I can get on it this time.
    Your financial solution

    Dragon Age's is really the one game I want to do but I fear the completion may last longer than this thing will allow.
    Yeah DAI's a rather long game, and it's honestly, a really good one to just take your time to enjoy.

    Dragon Age: InquisitionHeraldThe Herald achievement in Dragon Age: Inquisition worth 130 pointsFinish the single-player campaign on at least Hard without lowering the difficulty.


    Dragon Age: InquisitionInquisitorThe Inquisitor achievement in Dragon Age: Inquisition worth 465 pointsFinish the single-player campaign on Nightmare without lowering the difficulty.


    These two take way too long, I don't even remember if you can start off with Hard on your first playthrough.
    You can start off on Nightmare and complete the entire game on it; I did - and explored everything and 100%d the base game - but I was playing for like 170 hours :)

    I'll be also in the team trying to complete NFS: Rivals in a week. Hoping there will be enough boosting sessions for the two online achievements. Though with an event like this I couldn't imagine not.

Thirdly i would like to announce my disappointment with EA for not expanding on their catalogue since the last time I was a subscriber around three months ago. I went from mass elation to severe WTF in 30seconds.It is somewhat surprising that more hasn't been added to the Vault recently, but EA hasn't really put out that many titles in until the end of 2015. There was a lot of dead time in their console resume. I would expect PGA Tour to end up in the Vault shortly though, and Madden 16 should be in shortly after the conclusion of the NFL playoffs in a little under a month (think late February).

    There are also some rumblings that they will start to add backwards compatible titles to the Vault (they don't have any currently as Mass Effect is technically a MS-published game, although I don't know what it up with the Popcap games that were published by them before they were acquired by EA), so that is definitely worth keeping an eye on.
    Most of the current games don't appeal to me much but there are titles that I want to play. I tell you what did impress me with this subscription, when I cancelled it they reimbursed me for the remainder of the month. Just holding out for Rory Mcilroys golf and Fifa 16 now.

    I have the subscription. Totally worth 30 bucks for a year if your into sports and shooters.

Three months doesn't give them a lot of time to put out the games, never mind sell them a bit before they make them free. I imagine (the latest)Madden will be next added since they are playoffs right now. I figure rory golf and latest need for speed after that, then NHL 16 after Hockey season ends.
    Fifa 16 or Rory Mcilroy would have pleased me
    The quotes were messed up, I didn't say the part that was quoted, so I changed it to what I said above.

    I think it will be soon for golf, Fifa will be june or July considering that is when the last two Fifa's went to vault.

    BTW for anyone who PC games, they put out Origin Access very recently. It is very similar to EA access, except for they indicate it will also include some 3rd party games. Currently, 15 vault games are all EA titles.

    Does Battlefield 4's premium still transfer from the 360? That'd be great to pick up if so....

    I feel like it would take me most of the time period to even download any of these games. Titanfall took at least a couple of days...

    Keen on giving Titanfall or PvZ a spin. Are there many people still playing them?

There's always a couple thousand playing Titanfall, although you might be hard pressed to find a game in your region in anything other than Attrition (TDM), Frontier Defense and Campaign.

You would have to play a lot and be great at it. Not saying its impossible, though.Really? Says 15-20 hours on the game page. Or is that people underestimating?its not bad if you use the trick to get credit for levels that are impossible to beat.What trick is this? Because this is the first I've heard of such a thing.
    Looking for a partner for Battleblock Theater Insane co-op.
