DIRT 3 Leaving GFWL in the Dirt

Codemasters confirms via Twitter that DIRT 3 is another game that will transition to Steamworks for multiplayer support with the unlamented death of Games for Windows LIVE (thanks PC Gamer). This may not get the green flag until next year, however, as they say: "We are working on it but it may not be until the new year."

I quite like Steam. I actually quite like Origin, it does the main things well (i.e. it's fast and it generally stays out of sight). ForgedReality, are you joking? You followed a post that mentions contentless criticism of Steam with contentless criticism of Origin so I'm not sure.

I don't like how Origin's server browser, and 99% of its UI is done in the browser. Why do I have Origin installed if it's just going to (inefficiently) use my browser? It doesn't always work the way it should and it can be quite cumbersome to utilize. It would be better if it offered some sort of in-game overlay at least, like Steam's shift+tab. I hate using Origin because it's just a hassle, but it's the only way to play BF3 (the only Origin game I own).
