Velvet if you want to buy Alice 2, its still on gamersgate, but I suggest you hurry.

Oh and Velvet to me bigger issue is losing all the deals and sales that games receive on steam and how often they occur. I dont see EA doing much in terms of deals for their new games anytime soon if they go origin exclusive. This is big problem for me, because paying for a game is the most important part.

Great deals often ROFL, thats a good one gl finding a good deal on a newly released game as fast as on steam or big sales and as often as what steam does. You are dreaming, especially if EA does make their games fully exclusive to origin. Then they will have no reason at all to put newer games on sale till year later earliest.

Gamersgate still carrying crysis 2 and even new alice right now, I hope they continue to carry EA titles as thats my last hope to buy EA games in future like me3.

Btw, something interesting about Origin system:

EA support error info on lifetime download limit

Re-installing your operating system, or interrupting a current download, will count as a new computer installation.

wut?

I know many people pause and resume their download later especially when on slower speeds or reboot, lose connection crash etc.... in Origin's terms thats new installation.

Btw, here is a post by someone from crytek on steam forums:

Cry-Adam post on steam

-> "Crytek love and support Steam. We will remain on these forums and continue to answer questions and share information as much as possible.

Actually, retail copies wont always be there, retail market in us took another dip in sales and at some point it will actually cost more to release/publish physical copies than actual profit. At that point there will be only dd, and for everyones sake it better not be origin only for EA games. I would wait for official statement from either valve, or ea or crytek before jumping to conclusions on all future ea titles though.

PS Oh and noman, steam had way better deals on those games u listed in the past before EA store.

StingingVelvet,

There are numerous cases when it comes to me1, me2, crysis packs where there were huge sales on steam during special events and I bought most of those games at that time and I did check EA own site and few other places at same time, steam always beat it. Valve published their own games on steam from day one because there was no other alternative, they never took their games off another service out of the blue because they didnt like the competition. Further, I don't see Origin selling many other non EA games like Valve does. I am ok with competition but how about Origin actually do something that will want me to buy a game on their system other than making it exclusive? how about better deal, how about something related to the system itself thats better than steam? Didn't think so.

There maybe many things I will hate about Origin system, not sure yet, I know that non us customers have a lot of complains. However, before I even will care about that the most important aspect is the price. This hurts customers in the end because EA is a company that time after time always cared more about profit than anything else. Now try to say same thing about valve.... nope it doesnt fly. So, EA having their titles on only 1 system that they own will mean if you want to buy their games you will pay their inflated prices and like it. Btw, I saw origin's support forums and help, wow what a mess reminds me of something back from 2000, even MPlayer had better organized support.

Valve's games are only available through Steam.

What's worse is that all Steamworks enabled games regardless of where they are purchased forever require a third-party launcher that effectively brings the entire Steam store along with the game.

I can't be more glad that a publisher is taking games away from Steam. I hope that the games stay available on Direct2Drive, Amazon and other digital download services.


If EA is going exclusive they wont stay on impulse or d2d, also looks to me like you don't care about the most important aspect: the price. Have fun paying full and overblown prices for ea games on origin, and maybe u can get a sale a year after game is out. lol.

Fact is that if you can't buy EA games anywhere but origin then you will be ra*ed pricewise and won't enjoy sale deals that for example steam or impulse offers on regular basis. Why do you think EA prefers to have their games on ORIGIN only? This way noone can buy their games cheaper and thus are forced to pay their ridiculous prices. Oh and when I mean that this applies big time to some people in other countries trying to buy games on origin.

Some people say that steam need competition, thats true, lets have competition, but that would mean that both steam and origin would offer EA games, then it would be actual competition, when EA only sells their games through origin, what kind of competition to steam is that? User is not visiting origin to possibly buy a game because its a nice deal there or better system, etc but because he cant buy it anywhere else. You call this competition? rofl.

I assume people who say Origin is great change also love to pay full prices even months after release and having nothing close to what steam frequent sales offer them. Ahh yes. You may as well send some money in envelope to EA if you like throwing money away.

Oh btw, no Alice on steam no buying options for me.

The difference between then and now is that Valve created a new market for this sort of deal and does a damned good job with it.
That's what we can say years later. But then people bitched and whined and MOST OF THEM installed Steam to play Counterstrike and HL2. And then, they get used to it. And now they can't think of a life without Steam.

EA is bringing nothing to the table ...
EA doesn't have to. They bring TOR and probably BF3 and ME3 and every other potential hit to Origin. That's all they have to do. Enough people will follow. And get used to it.

No, you do not have to follow. But enough people will as they followed Steam, as they accepted online DRM and account locked content and other annoyances just to play a popular game. Many gamers are addicted to games. They will do anything.

OH yea, if ME3 is exclusive to origin only that means I wont be buying it, I bought me1 and 2 on steam and if its not on steam I wont be buying it, but I am not saying I wont be playing it.

I would love to see EA have the balls to pull their games from all online distribution services/stores and having it exclusive on origin only. I would laugh hard. Oh and as for taking off their titles off steam, I am glad since most of them suck that way I never have to see them on the steam store.

PUT ON SOME GOD DAMN HELMETS FOR FUCK'S SAKE. In the fiction, space marines wear helmets. Not just for the protection, but for the tactical advantage of the "autosenses" and imaging enhancement displays in the helmet. They aren't stupid like the COGs in Gears of War.

And they use cover, especially the Ultramarines, they fight more tactically.

Damn, so true.

My friend who played few hours of the game told me these things about this game so far:

- highly linear
- graphics are some of the lowest quality you will ever see on ue3 engine.
- graphics feel like a low quality console game, low resolution textures, low polygon counts etc...

quite sad if thats true. I guess they rushed the game or did not care.
