Oh yeah, scanning my computer for "other EA games"....I paid for a game to install a service to tell me whether my other games need updates?

Yeah I'm tired of companies thinking they can get away with bullsh*t like this. Stay out of my private life!

Why is everybody so paranoid?
Like everyone is out to get them.

It's the Government!!!!

Paranoid? Dude, it blantatly points out that ORIGIN SCANS YOUR COMPUTER AND YOUR FILES!

Wtf is there not to get paranoid about that? When did it become okay for a company to scan personal files and data of its consumers?

Why is it important for EA to police gamers on whether they have legit copies of other games? What's it to them? And why do they need that data?

EA and Origin can GTFO with that kind of nonsense.

hahaha...paranoid loser gamers. Doesnt get any better than this. Theres a carck that allows you to play without origin that works like a charm. If you dont like it, go back to COD. This is hilarious.

I'd like to be there when EA sends the Origin anal probes through your Origin-bought gaming chair. I mean, they'd only do that to find out what you like to eat, and what better way to do so than by testing the food-tube while you game.

It'll bring a whole new meaning to the term "butt raped" when you're losing like a punk in Battlefield 3. To put it bluntly, you won't be QQ'ing because of the score, and EA probably won't foot the cleaning bill either.

On second thought, I think I'd rather skip on that can enjoy that discomfort on your own.

Origin FTW!
