Is there even anywhere on their site where you can actually log in? Or do you have to install the whole thing in order to redeem the code?

It's not like I'm likely to actually play the game so maybe I shouldn't bother, but I do have an ancient account from around the time the game originally released so might as well spruce it up.

I'm in a similar situation and was wondering this, myself... It does appear that the store interface where you redeem codes is only accessible in-game.

BTW, expansion content is not included in their definition of "all quest packs," however they do have the first six of those on sale for 99 cents each for the duration of this promo, as well. That's everything from Mines of Moria (2008) up through Mordor (2017), which I see they normally sell these days as a $59.99 package.
I downloaded, installed, and tried to log into my account but its login kept saying "Failed to launch client -- No subscription for LOTRO found". My logged in https://myaccount.standingstonegames.com/home.php web page doesn't show a LOTRO subscription, but does show my free DUNGEONS & DRAGONS ONLINEā„¢ Subscriptions signed up on 9/22/2009. I tried to sign up a new account since I was playing its free beta back then, but it wouldn't accept my old e-mail address. I don't want to make a new account. I'm hoping its support can fix this soon so I can redeem and play it soon!

I started up my D2 Median XL install and it works fine Har har har

According the Median XL mod creator, D2R there will be a single player mod coming some time in 2021 inspired by Median "but better" so that's an interesting bit to look forward to.
Doesn't Blizzard not allow mods online to play?

I really wished D2R & D3 didn't require online Internet to play offline single player. Open beta was nice though.

I literally stopped earlier this year because I let my sub expire and ran into locked quests.

Nice!

How has this game been recently? I haven't jumped in again for a few years but I have a lifetime account from forever ago so might check it out again if there's interesting things to do and see.
I played its free beta that was in September 2009 according to my old account. It was OK, but not good as original WoW, current ESO, etc. Is it better now for me to revisit?

Yeah, but not pretty as D2R. Maybe someone will find a way to make it play offline without Internet for single player.

Best Action RPG ever made, with a few QoL and graphical updates, and that music... Definitely getting this within a few weeks, once the online is smoothed out.

That music indeed. Matt Uelmen really hit it out of the park back then. For anyone who hasn't heard the covers by Jonas Lefvert, here's a playlist of his on YouTube with some great renditions.
Nice find and thanks.

Star Trek: 25th Anniversary was great. Never played any of the others...that I can recall.
I only liked its space battle parts. I never cared about adventure games. I played it and its sequel, Judgement Rites, on my IBM PS/2 model 30 286 10 Mhz PC.

Also, free give aways?

I couldn't get the recent Black Ops Cold War's free trial to work via Battle.net: https://imgchest.com/p/qe4gd5mq4j2 ... Activision's support couldn't resolve it. I wasted times, bandwidth, and SSD space.

I used to (well, 20 years ago), then Steam started having massive sales and Epic gives them away free. Now I just collect games I never play.

Also, do they even make demos any longer? I see them very rarely these days.
Oh yeah, free full games too. Too many games! No time to play like today for me.
No time? There's always time for games!

Seriously though, why do not have any leisure time.
Real life, colony, etc. Having fun with other stuff like Internet.

This game is the development studio's first game and its low effort cash grab playing off the Alient license. The graphics are 5 years old, the animations are janky, the xenomorph AI is really bad. The level design is mostly corridors and despite it being mostly corridors and 5 year old graphics and poor animations, it still suffers with poor framerates! They couldn't even be bothered to make the characters lips move when they talk. The best thing about it is probably the upgrade system the way you have to slot in and modify abilities. That's the coolest and most innovative thing about the game. Everything else is average or falls below expectations. Always beware of a game based off a license popular property most of the time it's going to be average or below average like this game. Huge disappointment. The only way this game is going to have any longevity is if it comes out for Gamepass or is free on Epic store. The game literally tells you to not play with AI companions if you don't have friends on the higher difficulty levels. That's what will happen when the game dies and there are no human players to play with you.

This is my take from the reviews. The game is garbage, how garbage like this is considered good when there are so many clearly better co-op shooters is beyond me. To all those saying this is a good co-op shooter, what the hell are you smoking? Probably because: Aliens.....

Take a look at what a good Aliens game looks like from 1999: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OlZTfQAQaoY

Look at the ligthing especially. This is a game from 1999!!!!
Damn dude I remember that game. It was crazy how good it was for 1999! The tracker was awesome and ramped up the tension.
Yup. I loved how it had three sides too beside Aliens and Predators!

Okay just tried the download again today and everything is fine so far. The download is around 37GB.
37 GB for a strategy game?!?!?!?! What the frak?

It has hella graphics. You've never reaped corn this pretty before. Seriously though, that does seem a little big for the base game, but textures are quite detailed and it is pretty looking even when zoomed in, so I imagine that has a lot to do with it.
Nice dupe. Well, I won't be getting the bext visuals since my used video card is a GeForce GTX 750 Ti (2 GB of VRAM).
