So, why does it tell me that I need Origin running in the background to play Mass Effect 3 on Steam?

Oh yeah origin still launches. You just can buy the games via Steam I guess.

Edit: Not sure if the entire Origin program runs or a plug in instead of it though.

That's awesome, even more bloatware/spyware to run in the background to be allowed to run a game that does not require it.

This is why I just steal these games and crack them. Not because I can't afford to buy them, but because, **** you, I don't consent to your terms and until you fix your scumbag ways, I'll continue to steal your software.

A new Star Wars game is coming. Called Squadron and will be relieved in 2 days. Will make it to Steam so that's good news.

I just want a new X-Wing or TIE Fighter game. But I know that will never happen.

I hope that this will improve player counts on these games. I'm hoping that Battlefront 2 and BFV come to steam as well. Those are some of my favorite games but player counts have been going way down, especially for Battlefront 2.

I know they aren't being supported anymore, but it would still be good to see them over on Steam and gain a little more traction.

Unlikely.





Many people including myself uninstalled origin and never looked back after Patrick Soderlund basically told the gaming community to go f-themselves. I used to be loyal to the BF franchise (and FIFA when I was younger) but I've grown disgusted at the industry and where it's heading. Outside of CDPR, Blizzard, Valve and Rockstar I feel the overall quality these days is lacking.
