Why not just use the Windows registry to look for installed EA games? Installed EA games will create a key into the registry. Instead of recursively scanning the hard drive at periodic times with no transparency, why not look for known EA game locations in the registry?

It would be better and more transparent to only allow scanning for games when the users asks to do so, not just obfuscating it from the user.

That being said, my issue is not with Origin. It is with Battlelog. I find it ridiculous that I have to be connected to the internet in order to launch any part of the game, INCLUDING MY VIDEO/AUDIO SETTINGS!!!
They really really need to scrap the concept of browser launching from this game, I complained about it during the alpha test, and I'm definitely complaining about it now.


Actually if you lose connection you can still play the singleplayer and djust the settings from there. Happened to me and I did it.

That's still a massive inconvenience for something so simple.

Example: In play League of Legends you can't even change video/audio/control setting unless you're in-game. So to avoid time wasting in-game i do it in the Tutorial >_____>

Probably still wont be on steam. It's just punkbuster updating possible detection locations.

Even if it would come on Steam i assume it will be the same for Games for windows live games.
You start the game with Steam but then it opens Origin anyway.
