Some really good deals there. I'm think about picking up Gotham City Impostors from there even though I already own it on XBLA.

I was having a look though that list and noticed Bad Company 2 Vietnam is there. I never got to play that and wondered about if it's possible to buy Vietnam on Origin and play it on Steam if you have the Steam version of BC2 so did a quick Google.

It turns out if you go to BC2 in detailed view of your Steam Library and click "view cd key" on the right hand menu, you can redeem that on Origin and you have the option to redeem normal or Digital Deluxe Edition. You obviously pick Deluxe and that comes with quite a bit of content including Vietnam. If you have Bad Company 2 on Steam then Vietnam and some more content is free so long as you redeem your BC2 key on Origin which is great.

If you want to skip going through Origin then being directed to ea.com to activate the key then this is where you get directed to: https://activate.ea.com

I thought this might come in handy for a few as I'm sure I'm not the only one that didn't know about this beforehand.
