Steam has an OFFLINE mode! Origin DOES NOT (at least last time I checked) STEAM FTW!
origin has an offline mode if you have the games from piratebay instead of origin.
But Origin does in fact have an offline mode. And you seem to forget that Steam's offline mode didn't work properly for years until Valve finally got it right a while back. Valve used to even make jokes about it in the changelogs for Steam with messages like "Offline mode finally fixed (for real this time)".
Origin has an offline mode. You could also play older origin games without even needing origin to be running, which is something that steam doesn't allow you to do.
Origin has offline mode, Start BF3 in offline mode and you get a single player menu :)
that would be awesome,......if I could log in.
Had my Origin account hacked once. Took me a full month of hassling EA before they let me log in again. Phew! Luckily I don't have many games with them. 99% of my games are on Steam. I feel safer with Steam. Furthermore, Steam allows me to share my games with my family members. Cool!
This really sucks for people like me outside of the US/Europe..I normally just wait till the retail copies appear like a week after they release in the states now I have to purchase codes from amazon cause origin is literally a parasite to anyone living in a 3rd world country.
You can still buy physical copies from retailers. You just won't be able to order physical copies from the Origin store itself.
Really? Article scared the hell out of me. Thought I had to go to hell and back just to play Dragon Age: Inquisition .
In that case I have absolutely no use for Origin.
I had no idea you could even buy physical copies from Origin.
Good thing I ignore any game with the EA logo!
I have never, and will never, use Origin. Change all you want EA your digital platform is a heap of crap on a turd throne.
Installing Origin is like giving my PC a new form of cancer.
This was the only thing Origin had going for them since when they have a deal say on Battlefield 4 it would be on all platforms and not just the PC version. Boo EA boo!!!!
