Mass Effect 3 Ships; Review Roundup

While I chuckled myself, for someone who defends steam, you sure pile on the Origin hate. Just sayin.
Or maybe I'm just honest about them? If you've read my posts you see I criticize steam when it deserves it, same with valve. I give them praise when they deserve it too.

Yet, when I praise valve/steam I basically get called a fanboi, and when I criticize them I basically get called a hater. IMHO, that just means I'm fair towards them.

I'll freely admit I have an automatic bias towards EA and everything from them, because of their long history of screwing their customers, studios they buy, and their employees.
But you know what? I gave origin a try just in case EA changed since the days they tried to charge you a fee to redownload a digital game on their service after a few months. Guess what? Origin sucks. EA had a great chance to come up with something with a better interface than Steam's clunky one. Steam is right there for them to learn from and improve on. Did they bother to spend any of their millions on a couple UI programmers and make something awesome? No. When I tried it I posted a mini review on blues listing the stuff that I disliked about it. I often see additional stories on blues confirming my feeling towards it. Like creston's. He actually comes up with some imaginative insults, like "tardmongrels" I like that. Instead of continued repeating of the boring 4 letter words that everyone throws around so much they are meaningless, he comes up with something cool.

I also occasionally mention what EA needs to do to earn my money. Such as do a good sale on sims 3 collection, $200+ isn't a good sale. Or putting DLC on steam for me to buy, so I don't have to deal with trying to buy it elsewhere and figuring out how to manually install it. Or putting games on steam instead of pulling them out. Or how about come up with a BETTER than steam service? Not equal (which its nowhere near right now), but BETTER. They have the money, they don't have valve's reluctance to hire specialists, or valve's lack of adequate manpower, they have a shot at making a good alternative to steam, but so far they aren't doing too good a job at it.
