Origin isn't terrible. It has cloud saves, automatic updates standalone installers and unless a game specifically requires Origin, you only need to use Origin to install it. After that, you never have to use Origin again.

The one thing Origin doesn't let you do is download a game, then port it to a different machine or create a backup. There have been plenty of requests for this feature, and as usual, EA simply ignores its customers.

The original was great but as long as EA keeps boycotting Steam I'll have to pass.
And no Origin, but that won't happen.

The real issue is that people like having all their games in one library. For most people, that library is Steam. When you don't make a game available on Steam, you're forcing them to create another library and split up their games. That's inconvenient and really unnecessary when EA could just adopt Steam like every other publisher (except Ubisoft).

And if you put a shortcut on your desktop or in a games folder it doesn't matter if you're using steam or Origin.

There's zero reason to not by a game just because it isn't on precious Steam.
I don't like running these programs in the background with these games. I don't mind having them to download, update, etc. I just don't want to have them running all the time even if I am gaming!

EA's insistence on using Origin for everything just makes me skip their games. If they get around to figuring out Steam then I'll consider it.

This, if it uses Origin it won't be on my PC...
Don't all new PC games use Origin these days?

I'd be a lot more interested to hear about the software and equipment used in the PRISM program, than the argument over the "correctness" of the collection itself. The fact they are doing it is no surprise to me, and not particularly intriguing. Knowing about IT side of the process would awesome.
It would be classified. Someone would have to leak it.

Most of us have suspected for decades that our government has been monitoring us. Why this surprises anyone I do not know. It's been leaked time and time again. At&t had the secret rooms in San Francisco where data mining was done by our government. We all know the current US cell phone company's have programs built into their services that log all our usages. Our leaders have spent billions of our tax dollars on these monitoring programs. They have that huge facility in Utah being built that was exposed recently. And other smaller sites like the one in San Francisco.

Ironic then isn't it that they failed to stop the Boston bombings even after the Russian government agency warned them about the family that carried it out? Even if they held back some of the info they had. All the agencies and wasted billions didn't do a damn thing because some bureaucrats decided that they were not a threat.

Crazy, we draw closer and closer to Orwell's 1984... though it seems he was off by several decades. It's like a runaway train now. We are losing our civil liberty's and privacy's at an alarming rate. Scary shit.
We were already like 1984 long ago.

I've been nothing but a true PC gamer going back to Wolf 3D and then Netquake..I have despised consoles and all the shit that came with them..but I am getting a PS4 as some sort of absolutely misguided point to stick it to MS and their shitty One mechanics.

My stupid protest by purchasing some other console won't do fuck all to MS, but it'll make me fell better. I will make sure to spread the word too.
Ditto. I haven't had a video game console Atari 2600. I find computers are way superior especially when it comes to hacking, modding, etc.

I got an update and didn't check the date, and then all of a sudden, every time I tried to fire up a game, I got a message about "checking for game updates".

Then I killed the exe and restarted it and everything ran fine...weird.

Don't you love computer issues, especially the weird/odd ones like that one? My Steam was acting very slow with its TF2 updates. I had to restart it.

noted, thanks! I had heard that both 2 and 3 were lacking a bit...I just hadn't looked into it at all. My backlog of games to play is just ridiculous at the moment.
Ditto. I just don't have time to play games so I stopped buying and downloading demos and betas. If it is one of those free weekends, then I will try to check them out but that usually fails. Haha. Damn, I am old.
