    I will check this out when I get home. Apparently it is blocked at school because "Website contains prohibited Virus/Malware content."

    The status for "Elite" and other rankings for a game is based off of total time.

    Wierd, it pulled the achievements from Steam for some games, but not all. For example it says I currently have 0 achievements for Skyrim, but it shows all my achievements for Civ V.

    Well giving away 2500 copies of Minecraft for Xbox 360 was a hell of a way to get the word out today.
  • Ya it doesn't really work very well, I think they have a lot of bugs to clear up with the Steam API. I tried the web interface and desktop app, and neither really report achievements correctly which greatly takes away from the fun of it. It was fun to try though, cool concept. Difficult to monetize with coupons. It reminds me of mint.com a little bit in how they are trying to monetize it. They probably hedge on the idea that EA will buy them out if the ads(sorry, rewards) don't work in order to improve the social aspect of Origin.
