I Want To Complain

I just opened an e-mail saying that if I pre-order Showtime through Origin I receive a free stuff pack.

1. I have been buying the stuff packs all along.
2. I have been buying retail copies all along.

In all honesty I do not find this promo fair. If "New" free items were offered I would say hey this is ok. But that would be wrong too as I do not want to play the game through Origin. I have been buying hard copies of the game for the reason that I may not be "online" in the future but will still be able to play The Sims 3.

This is not the first time The Sims game have had what I consider to be unfair offers with their launches.

Thanks for letting me complain.

    I'm sorry, but I don't really see how this is that upsetting. Many companies do this. I know Herinteractive does this with Nancy Drew games. Its kind of annoying, but not really outrageous. Sorry, but its the way the cookie crumbles...

    You need to complain on the website that you downloaded the car from...this isn't the place to do it, since the car is CC.

    I live in the UK. I order from Origin. They don't offer me hard copies, just downloads.

    I believe OP means hard copies as in retail bought (aka actually going to a electronic/game store).

    I have really had enough of origin. I went to live chat (should have known better) and I asked them to please check and see if I had ordered Showtime, as my paypal said I paid for it, but never got the confirmation or any notification so, I asked and was told to order it again, and they would give me a 15% off code and I could get a stuff pack with it. I told them that I was checking if I already ordered as last time I ordered a stuff pack and had already ordered it, they sent me the stuff pack and the digital download which I paid for twice, and would not take one of them back even though I had paid for two, and they said because I ordered them and guess what he wants me to order another showtime, when I was checking with them to see if I was charged and the order was not placed. Why would I be stupid enough to order it again. Well trying to talk me into it, he said that he would just need my account name to order it for me. I told him that if he just needed my account name to order it, than he should have been able to check my order using my account name, he said he could not do that. What? So I would expect them to give you the free pack even though you already have it, take it as a download or the disk whichever one you do not have and use it as a backup or sell it on e--bay, Just a suggestion.

    ^ If you want someone to help you, you need to be more specific. The answer can only be as specific as the question. It sounds like your video card isn't good enough to run the game and the display driver is crashing but I can't tell you for sure based on what you said.

    What is the exact error? What are your specs? Please post the dxdiag (if you're using Windows, if you're using a Mac...I can't help you). If you don't know how to do that:

    Click Start
    Type "dxdiag" in the search (without the quotes)
    Click on dxdiag
    Click Save All Information
    Copy and Paste that here

    I have played The Sims since the beginning. The Sims was great for the time it came out...Sims 2 was an incredible upgrade. I loved it. Sims 3 was the best because the whole town aged and not just the house you were playing. Sims 4 is terrible. Unless you are a girl and like to make dollies and dress them there is little else to do that I see. It is completely limited to the house again. I held of buying it and finally gave in. I felt so cheated. I still play the Sims 3 and it is still fun. I hate Sims 4
