Just as I'm not going to buy Modern Warfare 3 unless it's on EA's Origin, I'm not going to buy Minecraft unless it's on EA's Origin. EA, EA Origin, and everyone who works for EA or contracted by EA, is awesome.

The BF3 alpha has made me join you Overon. We both think the same thoughts.

It looks very on-rails and geared toward consoles. Way to ruin a beloved franchise.

If you can re-sell your downloaded games then the developers and publishers will start charging more up front. They will also start doing other things to make you want to purchase new rather than purchase used.

Gabe must know this. Its not complicated. I expect never to be able to re-sell a downloaded game. Doesn't bother me.

"operating system, Application usage (including but not limited to successful installation and/or removal), software, software usage and peripheral hardware". "EA may also use this information combined with personal information for marketing purposes and to improve our products and services."

Make money from making a game. Make extra money by selling marketing data. Be extra scummy by providing giving your users no choice.

I'm surprised Gabe is even considering cross-platform play.

NCsoft just keeps shoveling out that shit.

Guild Wars, City of Heroes, Lineage II. And then of course we will have Guild Wars 2 and now WildStar. These are do do?

The alpha server browser was on a web page. It wasn't bad, had the general stuff you expected in a server browser.

The web page would also show your stats and stuff.

News Comments > Battlefield 3 Will Require Origin
69. Re: Battlefield 3 Will Require Origin Aug 11, 2011, 19:10 Nate
 
In the alpha feedback, I complained about having to install 4 pieces of software just to play. Browser plugin, Origin, the alpha itself and I think the last was a 2nd piece of browser software. I also didn't like having to start the game from the browser. You couldn't just launch with a simple desktop icon.

Origin popping up and displaying stuff each time I started playing was also annoying. I eventually just dragged the window mostly off screen and left it there.

Despite all of these annoyances, I still pre-ordered.

Been playing the alpha, great fun and runs on my laptop smoothly.

Shh, we were told not to discuss the Alpha. (Looking left and right)

Kinda irked that the download and the physical are both $59.99. But I'm lazy so bought the download anyway. EA needs more money.

After many hours this weekend, I'd definitely say BF3 is worth $50.

The $60 price tag is a little on the painful side. I'll probably pre-order it on Origin.

Diablo 3 is for me! These decisions by Blizzard all seem quite logical.

  • I like the real money auction. Should be fun to sell stuff for a few bucks.


  • I like playing with other people. So no offline play doesn't matter.


  • Their effort to ensure no hacking or cheats is also appreciated.

    News Comments > Brink DLC Next Week
    8. Re: Brink DLC Next Week Jul 29, 2011, 19:52 Nate
     
    I had many hours of fun in Brink for the PC. Agree that the servers are getting quite thin.

    The only reason I kept playing Brink was that I'm tired of TF2. It has some new elements which made it fresh. Now, its not so fresh. Perhaps 2 new maps will keep me interested for a few more plays. But probably not.

    News Comments > Brink Postmortem
    15. Re: Brink Postmortem Jul 25, 2011, 21:14 Nate
     
    They said that the free DLC is held up because of they are waiting for the XBox approval process. Don't know why but they must want to do a simultaneous DLC release for PC, XBox, PS3. Another stupid move.

    I've been playing the PC version. Getting a good amount of fun out of it but developed a hate for the Reactor map and one other. Some of the maps I really like.

    The PC release could have been much better. A short period of open beta testing would have pin-pointed various simple problems that they shouldn't have went live with. Brink was close to being a very good game but they blew it.

    Fallen Ench is a new, hopefully non-crap game built using the same engine. Its a freebie to make up to the people who bought the first one.
