Oh well, I kind of wanted to try this.

Not going to break my $0 to EA's digital store streak.

There is something amusing about a Source Engine game not being available on Steam.

I have no problem with Origin. I wouldn't avoid a game because of it.... it's PC or nothing for me.

I dont mind at this point. Origin isn't bad at all.
It's not so much that Origin is bad (it's not), it's that EA is one of the worst things to happen to PC games since... Well, they're probably the worst thing.

Also, Origin isn't even close to Steam in a feature set comparison, even after all these years.

There are literally people that won't buy the game because of this.
Isn't it great?

Well on the upside if the game ends up looking like a pile of shit no one will ever know since Origin doesn't support screenshots.

Between re-downloading Origin and buying an Xbox One, I'll take Origin as the lesser of two evils. Yea it sucks guys but Origin isn't that bad.

Well on the upside if the game ends up looking like a pile of shit no one will ever know since Origin doesn't support screenshots.
I didn't even know about this, but that's fucking hilarious

Figured as much with EA as publisher. Zampella might be one of the worst business men in this industry. He gets screwed by Activision, then proceeds to have the same thing done by EA. Fool me once yadda yadda. Enjoy 1/4 the sales on PC TitanFall could have had. Now lets see the other shoe drop when the game is announced without many PC specific features.

I have no issues at all with Origin. It alarms me those who are so polarized by Steam they are not open to alternatives.

Isn't this expected?

Another Titanfall thread. EA must be happy. Is this the most alked about next-gen game so far?
