[bf3blog]Origin required to play Battlefield 3 - Page 33

post #321 of 349
Its simple.
Make retail version of the game not require origin but still give the option to use it.
Digital - Require origin.

But nah, lets force our client upon you.

Funny how you think OCN is the collective of all PC-gamers across the world.
Let me ask you something, when you visit a Ferrari lover forum, do you also pretend that every car owner is part of that forum?

And trust me, "all the rage and hate from the OCN community", usually only amounts to a fraction of the users that posted in that topic, these days people will find anything to ***** against.

EADM used to do the EXACT SAME THING with my digital Battlefield 2142 copy before it was renamed to Origin.

Therefore, it is a reincarnation of EADM, and the need to have EADM to run the game was a feature that existed BEFORE Origin was born.

Therefore, *yawn* and no point protesting if you'll only care to protest when the thing you're protesting against affects you personally.

What Glory?

Most of the people here are going to buy it regardless, only immature people wouldn't buy it because of origins.

EADM never did that for me with Black and White 2 or Burnout Paradise, I also downloaded and installed BFBC2 Vietnam with EADM.

You could download it and play it as if it were a regular off the shelf game or DLC pack by running from install directory, because EADM was nothing more than a download manager (hence the name) and could be uninstalled without any problems after installation.

pro·test/prəˈtest/
Verb: Express an objection to what someone has said or done.

I don't have to be in the "Protesters of Origin" party to express my opinion, no matter what you say. I'm not saying your opinion is invalid, it's just that you're defending something that noone has seen in action yet. Let's just wait and see if Origin will be any good instead of the ugly JPEG with buttons it is right now.

Yeah, it was for the Alpha testers who put a pre-order down on BF3.

We are all biased in our own little way, but the way I see it with the whole BF3/origin thing, its the no dedicated servers thing all over again... it'll be slow and gradual, but the way the industry is going we may as well be playing on a console in the future.
I don't like the fact that ea is tying origin in like this, but again if it works well i'll be happy, I like steam so this isn't too different.

But this is typical EA(heh) as well. Very good marketing and the game isn't the same as it's shown.
Having not showing tanks in mp or jets till now? jesus the game is coming out next month.

calling COD4, or L4D/L4D2/portal 2 a console port is baseless and illogical, if anything they were ported the other way.
100% agree, people who throw around terms like console port should know what the hell they are talking about.
