What EA will lose if BF3 stays off Steam - Page 17  

post #161 of 174
And all the BF3 players now do not have to deal with a bunch of whiny Steam crybabies. That's a win in my book. I personally hate Steam because they FORCE thier users to run it in the background while being online, unlike Origin, where you only use it to buy the game, then never have to use it again. Did you all read that? I will repeat it for all the morons out there:

YOU NEVER HAVE TO RUN ORIGIN AGAIN AFTER INSTALLING THE GAME.

Tp hell with Steam taking up my system resources. They didn't make the game, why should I allow them to have anything at all to do with it?

Its not about clicking a mouse, its about having two programs to accomplish the same task installed on my system, and potentially running simultaneously in the background.

Two friends lists, two games lists, two separate communities where there used to be one.

I still can't understand why people are so afraid to install a program that takes a few megabytes of space and does not bother them after installing the game... Compared to origin steam is very intrusive.

While I am quite aware that some people will still buy the game after saying they will boycott, I will not. The article is good to point out that most people (myself included) are genuinely content with Steam at the moment. I DO have a ton of friends I connect with through Steam and multiplayer games ARE more fun when you play with friends. I can also connect with them through Skype, Facebook, OCN, IRC, Twitter, MSN, AOL, text, email, and the list goes on. But I don't, I prefer to have them all on one place.

Right now, Origin is still in its infancy. I would prefer to not use it. Therefore, I will use my hard earned money elsewhere to show that. You can call out 'whiners' all you want but those who cry 'Whiner!' are generally doing more whining than their targets.

Regarding the fact that it is actually Valve that won't allow BF3 in the store, I could care less whose fault it is unless there was some great injustice occurring. EA is fully capable of adjusting their games to work just fine on Steam. If they want the sales that would occur through Steam then they could easily place BF3 there. I would prefer to get my updates automatically through Steam and not some 3rd party update service. This is a clear attempt to gain more users on Origin (again, not evil or bad in and of itself) but I don't agree and so I will not be purchasing it on Origin. I may buy a retail copy if Origin is not required to play it but I find that highly unlikely.

Maybe you should rid yourself of one of your testicles, too.

2 > 1.

There are several programs on my PC that are meant to accomplish the same task. Like I said earlier as a simple example, both firefox and chrome. Sometimes I open them at the same time. I know, it's blasphemy! Is your head spinning yet?

Considering that this is the first time I have seen this said, at least as many times as it has been...

Can I get a link to where that was confirmed by EA?

Just because there can be, does there need to be? Are you implying that if there were a single browser that accomplished the best from Firefox AND Chrome, you would still choose to use two separate programs? If so, whatever floats your boat. I prefer to not have to fragment my computer experience whenever possible.

You'll still be forced to use Origin.

Sorry to break the devastating news.
I love how you misinterpret other people's quotes to spin your own point of view.



There's been about 25 posts in this thread alone clearly stating you don't need to run Origin to play games that you got from Origin.

But who cares about that. Let's just ignore facts, and misinterpret what other people said just to bash Origin some more.

That and the people who complain about Origin taking up a whole of 100MBs on their system are what make this thread worth reading.

Anyways, I'm surprised NO ONE is complaining about the DLC bonuses from buying the game on Origin. That is the real issue. Not the fact that you gotta press a different button to launch the game. Giving away weapons to players for pre-ordering may unbalance the game, or may have no effect at all, but we won't know that till the game is out. The maps, that's a good bonus. The weapons, not so much.

I have 160 games on Steam, and I couldn't care less about being loyal to Valve for Steam. Portal 2 isn't available (for digital download) anywhere but on Steam. Yet when another big company wants to do the same thing, it's heresy. Except you can actually get BF3 on D2D and Impulse and whatever else.

I remember buying Half Life 2 and having to install some useless program called Steam to make it work. Wasn't happy at the time, since it was most likely gonna be useless. Funny how that worked out.
