1. Any game that needs to give a copy of a recently released top tier title (BF3) to increase poor pre-order numbers is probably not going to be a good game.
2. Origin. Terrible service, not user-friendly, and it is bloody well intrusive.
Sorry to say it, but I'll just have to watch the ending of this great saga on YouTube. Sad really, when you consider I used to be a huge BioWare fan until they started producing crap sequels instead of original games. Chalk up another ruined company thanks to EA.
