In a thinly veiled attempt at targeting Steam users, EA’s Origin service is promoting a player appreciation sale on games that invites you to forget about your backlog and instead buy some games that “you’ll actually play”.
Oh? They get origin in a functional state again? Its been broken so many times I just stopped checking it.
Broken since? Been using it for a long time.
Ive never had any luck running origin as with many others. For example, the origin store at this moment isn't working for me. I got a loading symbol for a couple minutes then got spit out because origin is unavailable. But i will give it credit, i did successfully launch deadspace 3.
As much as I hate EA's approach in Origin, with their retarded pricing just being a flat out insult (much like the PSN's prices, what a joke, but dumb console peasants still use it for some god forsaken reason, and then have the audacity to say PC gaming is more expensive), I have to confess I've been genuinely impressed with Origin. I have never had an issue with it. It doesn't cause problems, it runs just as well and fast as Steam. I get just as fast download speeds as I do on Steam. Steam beats it every time with content and most importantly prices. Steam is more community and socially driven as well, and actually has indie devs release games too. Origin has a long, long way to go, and if they don't slash their prices by £20 as a minimum for each game on release, they'll never be good.
Sorry, Origin, but these prices are simply not good enough, especially with the Steam Summer Sale on the way.
Why buy origin when there's not even an option to back up you're games. Such joke cause I love re downloading bf4 everytime I had to reinstall my os /s
"Games you’ll actually play” People still play NHL 09?
That really is just pathetic EA
How is having a sale pathetic? Will it help if they increased the price instead?
whats on sale is pathetic NHL 09? such wow Defending EA? re-evaluate yourself
Just downloaded bf3 for pc for free, even though I have it for ps3. Still not buying their other games on origin.
Yeah because i totally would play such AMAZING HIGH-QUALITY BUG FREE HIGHLY REPLAYABLE TITLES SUCH AS DRAGON AGE 2 AND DEAD SPACE 3. Literally the only worthwhile title in EA's franchises is The sims and that's sad
try "Spore" it's like evolution simulator.
I have Spore and its good until you get to space and then it becomes "Allied Interplanetary defense simulator" where you constantly get called back to help protect your allies. Then lol sequel like Darkspore killed it. That's yet another EA title to suffer that fate
I absolutely love Spore. In fact I feel like booting it up right now. @YTPHaruko I liked the space part of the game the best. It had more depth than any of the previous sections. And while I do agree with you that your allies constantly call you back, so what? I just ignore them. Expanding my intergalactic empire and becoming the most powerful species in the galaxy is far more interesting than being bothered by a few whiny allies.
Try Spore it's very good game. You will understand evolution more :)
Wow I can't believe what entitled whiners a lot of gamers are.
You get an agree from me, but seriously this is the Internet. I can totally believe it lol.
