all of them are for origin, the game activates on origin
Yes, I know. That's why I replied to droobie21 and let him/her know, because he/she said they'd jump on the deal if it was Origin-activated.

What is the $5 coupon mentioned in the wiki?
During November and December, if you bought certain games from Amazon you received a $5 off coupon for Editor's Choice games in January. This C&C bundle is on the EC list, which is probably why, as I alluded to in my earlier post, Amazon won't price match the Impulse deal. Too many people are still sitting on those $5 coupons, and I doubt Amazon wants to sell this for $12.
Careful... nostalgia is a tricky thing. None of these games are going to be quite as fun as when you first played them. Plus, they'll look horrible, by today's standards. I recently waxed nostalgic about the Pharoah game that Sierra put out in `99 . Despite getting a hacked .exe that allowed for 1920x1080 graphics (which essentially just put more pixelated real estate on the screen), I was quickly turned off by a game that I once sunk many, many hours into.
Even back then Command and Conquer games were never about the graphics. Its about the gameplay and strategy. I still play Red alert 2 online with friends and we have a ball.
The Impulse/GameStop deal for $17 is for Origin, just FYI.
Not sure if Amazon will price match the $17. A lot of people are still sitting on those $5 coupons from the holiday sales. So while I'd love to get this for $12 from Amazon, it seems unlikely.
Good point. I didn't think that one through. Thanks for the heads up. I'll probably order if I don't guilt myself out of it by the time I get home. I've already paid a bathtub of cash in the past few months for games I don't even play.
I still have my RA (free download now too I think), RA2 and generals discs from way back when, and just finished replaying RA2 a few days ago. Nostalgia can indeed be fickle, but I still love it. I'll probably install Yuri's Revenge soon.
I don't want EA to have anything more to do with CNC, but I do sometimes fantasize about some other decent company winning the IP in a high stakes CEOs-only poker game and returning it to its former glory.
