The games are there but the speed to download them isn't. I've let it download for two and a half days and I am at 13%. Oh well, as long as they have their money right Origin?
I'm probably gonna get flamed for saying this, but, get used to the disappointment. Generally speaking Origin doesn't have the polish that Steam has, and by the sounds or it that may also ring true for reliability.
I base this on threads and conversations i have read, i don't personally use anything other than steam for syncing reasons.

It would have taken forever at home and thats assuming that the connection wouldnt time out.
I'm gonna take a shot in the dark and say they don't have as many servers, or as much connectivity (what ISPs buy to make internet) as valve, probably because Origin is newer than steam.
