why do you classify steamworks as a separate entity from steam's digital store?
Majority of Origin complaints are complaints against EA and fanboyism.
How many actual problems are on Origins recently?
I mean besides the massive fanboy outcry, i haven't read any real gamebreaking news regarding Origins.
GFWL i can understand as there's a lot of login problems with it, but origins i haven't come across any severe issues listed or myself personally.
Btw the most imposing DRM right now is probably blizzard's Battle.net. you basically cannot play SP games without an internet connection.

lol if you live outside USA you will understand that Origin is crap

just two things for example....I live in America, in a country where usa dollars are used....

and yet Origin show me prices in Euros, just because the language in my country is spanish...and there is NO WAY to change it.....Steam even list my countrry in every option...accept our credit and debit cards....our currency...

sales...sales are non existant for latin american users in Origin.........sales in Steam are the same for you, me and everyone...only time a sale is not the same is when the developer (like the GFWL trash) block it

Origin sucks

Still don't care as it still has activation limits no matter where it's bought from (retail, origin,steam, amazon, etc.). Learned my lesson with Warhead, I will never touched a activation limited game again.

But what games have you purchased that required Steam which did not state that much in the requirements?

Not all games force you. True. Many do. True. Do I get that choice? No. Amd I told about this requirement before I make my purchase? Most times no.
I'm sorry that when I buy a game, I want to play the game, and nothing more.
DRM is DRM. All DRM is bad. Nuff Said.
I don't have an aversion to Steam, but I agree--people harald Steam as some godsend anti-DRM entity, when in fact it's just the same old DRM just fancied up and (thankfully) doesn't really present the user with a lot of problems (something they've gotten right).

The steam store and the steamworks DRM leaves the majority of decisions up the the developer - that's hardly intrusive by design. Actually more that's robust and flexible than anything else...
But in fairness, read what they're saying--it's not just Steam, it's all forms for DRM. It's not anti-steam drivel, it's a valid disagreement with the implementation of all DRM. Despite my appreciation for Steam, I also agree with what his/her message is.

Also, what games can you purchase in steam which doesn't also require steam to play? That's not a rhetorical question, I just thought that all games purchased (or activated) on Steam require it to be played.

Why is it people get so blinded (or rather brainwashed) when it comes to DRM. You're either pro-steam or anti-DRM of any form. That dichotomy boggles my mind. Does everyone who touts steam as the best thing since sliced bread really not see that it's DRM? Albeit DRM that's so much better-implemented than most things so far, but it's still DRM. I like Steam, but I disagree with DRM in principle, and I tolerate DRM when it doesn't disrupt my gaming experience. But don't fool yourself as a steam-user, it's still the "big bad" DRM...

So EA caved, huh. It's about time biggrin.gif

Seriously though, I remember that EA said they weren't going to launch ME3/BF3 on Steam because they had different concepts about how DLC should be run and who the DLC actually belongs to. Yet Crysis is now back WITH the extended DLC editions as well.

It's not like EA at all to backtrack and contradict themselves like this
Glad to see it back and I hope there's plenty more to come!

If you run x64, warhead LITERALLY comes with its own 'crack'. Just go to Bin64, and run Crysis64.exe. The game works exactly the same, but for some reason doesn't need a disk, and ignores the activation thing. No idea why. (You need to download the patch).


And yes, thats all 100% official. Official patch from Crytek. Official game, right from the disk. You cant explain that.
