It has been a while.
I seem to be having to explain this alot these last few weeks - I was replying to what someone else said, and appologised for the detraction....
Yeah.... I 'member.
Yeah... EA was like hey everyone that bought Battlefield Bad Company 2 on Steam we will let you activate your Steam copy of Battlefield Bad Company 2 on our new EA Download Manager now renamed Origin it's super good now guiz you will love it.
I then spent every moment of using it wishing I just didn't have to use it..... I've sent so many negative feedback messages over the years when it asked how I felt about Origin and if I would recommend it to others.
What an odd world. Not that I'm not liking it. I wonder if they bring over some of the older titles that started on Steam, but then got taken away (Dragon Age 2 and onward, Dead Space 3, Mass Effect 3). Also, could this mean more goodies for GOG (at least Dead Space 2)?
Yes me too, particularly at the times when origin was new and I played BF3 I usually didn't give them too good of a feedback as well. Lately, my main issue is with Frostbyte's update process (which still is horrible imho needing huge downloads, and downloading first before asking for EULA confirmations which, by itself, is stupid in case anybody would really want to decline). But these days, I honestly make it dependant on what games I play... haven't started origin in like, a year or 6 months prior to BF5's release.
Afaik, they will be bringing more titles to steam in 2020. Not sure which those will contain.
Cool. We'll see what the future brings, then.
Alright. Time to replay the dead space series.
Who wants to play on co-op with me?
add me on random_rambler
Star Wars: The Fallen Order is available on Steam to pre-purchase. Thats another EA game, but with different developer which probably have many games on Steam already. Another question is, will it be available on Nvidia Geforce Now since most Steam AAA games are available.
