No, it's terrible but you have no other choice.

Damn, they are really really really desperate. I mean, it's battlefield 3 not even battlefield 2.

Let me enlighten you: Dead Space was the first game on the house. Though it is a tad weird that you were not aware of that.

I don't get people's problem with Origin to be honest. If anything, the customer service is even better than Steam one. Sure, it has its flaws, but even Steam has its flaws, even more so now with the releases of old games that are mostly just the back catalogues of some crappy companies.

 

Back to topic: I don't like shooters, but if I can get one for free, I won't shy away.

Do you guys think a dual core 2.00 Ghz, 4 GB Ram and ATI radeon 2400 computer can run this game at least on low?

It's not Steam, but once you'll get through that phase, it's not bad.

Today I've installed my free copy of Bf3. Then i saw the battlelog and I immediately uninstalled the game.

But it's still more expensive than walking to the closest Gamestop and buying a EA game or a preorder there. Hell, the BF4 preorder was 10€ plus cheaper than on Origin.

Don't forget that no one's forcing you to use either. YOU wanted to play the game, so YOU have to deal with possible "obstacles".

Okay first off, who the hell preorders nowadays?

 

Secondly, where I'm living, the new games on Origin are $60. And EA does bring out sales once in a while, not a much or massive as Steam's though. Not sure how it works in Finland.

The BF4 basic pre-order for PC was 50€ on Origin and the Deluxe was 60€.

The Basic Pre-order from a gamestop was 48 for PC, I think, and in department stores it was between 40-48€

And the Origin sales are always on titles I know I can get cheaper from most stores here. Even GameStop with their slight overprice has those cheaper.

Basic Preorder from GameStop is 65 USD, not cheap at all. It's the same price we pay for preorders. But who preorders nowadays if we can't trust our devs to bring out quality products?

 

Origin preorder is 68 USD and Deluxe is 80 USD. Preorders in Origin in the US tend to be $59.99.

 

Origin sales are few and far between, but that is why there's GMG.

Last time I was on Origin was around a year ago if not more because I was playing sim city (Don't ask was trying to optimise it) So I didn't really keep up to date with the hole giving games away on Origin. The only game I knew was given away was Medal of Honour and a few other games because of the joke that was Sim City.

But since you'd have to download it (they did not just send it to everyone, you had to pick it up) and you had no idea it even existed, someone must have done it for you. If that's impossible...let's say it was magic *snort* *snort*.
