[GamingBolt] Origin is required for all PC editions of Mass Effect 3 - Page 36

post #351 of 565

Well guess I'm gonna buy the PS3 version then, don't understand why in hell force Origin on a Heavy based Single player Game, yet another idiotic move from EA, I totally passed on BF3 thanks to that. Thank God they didn't do that to SW:TOR or I would really be angry.

Apparently there's a multiplayer component.

As a bf3 player, it doesn't really matter to me.

Sure, I'm not thrilled with managing two different services, I'd love for it to be all in one place, but that's simply not going to happen. All EA is doing is trying to protect their IP. The day Valve allows a service like Origin to provide a game like Half-Life 3 without requiring Steam is the day I'll equally hate on Origin like all you crazy people.

Currently @ 128 games installed on Steam btw, vs. only 2 for Origin (BC2 and BF3). As long as its only the absolute biggest EA blockbusters that require Origin, I really don't have a problem with it.

I have read the horror stories both on here and Reddit. I do not want to be a victim.

yeah, because Valve has proven to be 100% secure...oh wait, they just got hacked a couple months ago, heck, a buddy of mine got his account jacked and someone bought a whole bunch of games from his account and when he contested the charges, Valve just shut his account down, took over a month of him constantly harassing Valve before he finally got his account back.

On the flip side I've only ever had pleasant and very easy exchanges with EA and Origin, heck, got Dead Space 2 for free by simply asking them for it when they had a BF3 preorder promotion where they gave Dead Space 2. The catch was I had already preordered BF3 long before the promo.

Neither is Origin.

First of all it was your pal's fault that his account got jacked. Second of all your pal probably went through the wrong channels to get his account back. Others have gotten their accounts jacked and they were let back into their accounts within 24 hours.

As well as they should. Personally if I were in that situation I would feel as if they owed me that promotion. If I had a game preordered during the time of a promotion like that it should also count towards that promotion.

Feel free to scan through this 40 page thread but many of us were arguing in it from start to finish and there were quite a few members from our own forums who found Origin to be scanning files it shouldn't.
http://www.overclock.net/t/1155275/various-battlefield-3-outrage-in-germany

There's no proof in that thread. If you actually read through it you would see there's no proof it scans any files that could be considered invasive or unusual. One thing I did notice in that thread is you like calling people fanboi or insulting them because they don't agree with you, a trend you seem to have continued in this thread. Why don't you download the tool linked in that thread and show us exactly what its doing that it shouldn't be? You sound so convinced that it should be easy to prove your point.

The origin comments are getting out of hand. I bet most of the people on here havn't even tried it, there's nothing to it. It's an EA version of steam. So what if EA wants to require you to use it, it's really no different than other online games requiring you to create a login ID and password through their website to play online

It's a simple program, it's easy to use, it takes up almost zero computer resources. Get over yourselves. seriously.
