Wasteland 2 NOT an Origin Exclusive

Enough people took Brian Fargo's positive comments about Origin's support for crowd-funded games as an indication that Wasteland 2 might be an Origin exclusive that the inXile Entertainment CEO took to Twitter to correct that mistaken impression. He says: "It is absolutely NOT going to be exclusive on Origin. They are just one of many digital stores we will support." Thanks nin.

I've got to give the nod for my personal worst gaming company to EA, though Microsoft is right behind them. I think that MS at least makes an excellent OS on which to game (every other generation anyway) gives them at least some redemption in my eyes. EA doesn't give the community anything good. That some games under the EA brand are still worth owning is a testament to the quality of the games' developers, and happen in spite of EA's involvement, not because of it.

That's a bit short-sighted. Games like Dead Space, Mass Effect, Mirror's Edge, Dragon Age, Crysis, Battlefield, etc, could not be created without tens of millions of dollars and raising that kind of money as an indie developer just isn't going to happen. Without EA's funding, those games would not exist so you have to give them at least a little credit. You should also give them some credit for at least supporting the PC. If EA hadn't bought Bioware, Bioware would still be making Xbox-exclusives. The only reason Mass Effect ever came to PC or PS3 was because of EA.

As for Origin, while it's nowhere near as good as Steam, I haven't had any particular issues with it. Installing, updating and running games has been a cinch. If the game doesn't require Origin, you don't even need to run it in the background. Also, Origin lets you install games wherever you want which comes in handy when you're running out of space on your usual drive.
