Guns here too! I did break years of tradition not playing ea games at release with TOR. I bought it retail, made an origin account used for the game account. No software install unless you buy and download from them.

Nope, I will never install Origin. I don't hate EA or even Origin itself, I just don't need another client. They have very few games I want so the decision makes itself.

Ditto. I refuse to use it. I did try it on my test PC at work. I wasn't impressed!

I wish Medal of Honor Warfighter would go on sale. I'm surprised with the not so great initial sales that it's not discounted with Battlefield 3 just to try and move some units.

Origin's really not as bad as everyone seems to think. It isn't as good as Steam but it's not as utterly worthless as Uplay. It supports cloud saves, lets you specify your download and install directories, lets you save the installer files should you want to re-install games without re-downloading them, etc. In addition, unless a game explicitly requires Origin (basically all of EA's recent first-party titles), you only need to run Origin while installing it. After that, you can launch the game without Origin.

While I'd certainly prefer not to use Origin, it still has some benefits and the downsides aren't significant enough to justify boycotting the games that use it.

origin is so pathetic they still don't have a complete ME2, after 3 years.

Not really sure what you're talking about. If you want to buy the ME2 DLC, you have to buy it directly from the Bioware site using Bioware points. This has always been the case, even before Origin existed. There is no version of ME2 that includes all the DLC.

No I'm trying to get PHJF to get Battlefield 3 for 12 bucks but he won't budge due to Origin. That and he's been brainwashed by a JRPG for the PS3.

I've installed it to play what I had to Origin and promptly uninstalled it as soon as I was done.

Just noticed the GOT RPG is on for $10 has anyone played it? From the metacritic reviews it seems $10 would be fair enough.
