Now I remember why I use steam :/

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So I bought darkspore today (off a cd keysite since it is cheaper than steam) and you can't activate it on steam unless you buy it there I guess so now I am stuck using this EADM thing that EA has to screw you over.

I choose to install the EADM tool onto my E drive which I use for everything I download but when I start it up to download darkspore it starts putting it on my C drive.

Annoyance number 2 is I am only downloading at 1.5mb/s whereas on steam I get 3+

...I REALLY hope BF3 comes out on steam. Probably the only game I wouldn't feel bad paying full price for and maybe even buy it retail
