    Some fool on Reddit posted this...you know I'm definitely interested in the "open beta" but I'm not so sure I'd want to play an "Alpha trial" anyway. Isn't this for smaller-scale testing of more specific things like the server performance and community features and such anyway?

    And Origin is fugly. Kinda looks like Desura but even fuglier.

    you'll probably have to install it as that's how EA games patch now. afaik it doesn't actually
    have to be running to play, but that may change with predominantly online titles like BF3.

    so basically all those that were bitching steam had to be on can now stfu because origin is the same thing but even worse, k gotcha,

    still not buying BF3 then,

    i look at digital distribution services as being aking to different consoles,

    i dont need Steam, Impulse, Origin, D2D, etc all on my PC

    its becoming more and more asinine to just load games and play them,

    i stuck to 1 for simplicities sake its bad enough i have to remember
    info for every site im a part of and every console i use

    Xbox live
    Games for Windows Live
    Steam
    Impulse
    Direct 2 Drive
    Origin
    Playstation Network

    then lets not forget things like
    The Witcher enhanced patch that you have to register to here forum to get so theres another
    EA / Bioware to get there DLC

    i mean it wouldnt be so bad but alot of these companies i have to remember multiple log in credentials just to access my shit, enough is enough, if EA wont play ball with steam , i dont need EA's games, we never use to need auto patchers use to be the community got by just fine with regular good ol patches but i forget this current generation of gamers is so ignorant they have to be spoon fed how to do anything.

    Yeah you certainly have a valid point and it's beyond having gotten seriously annoying but to say you're not gonna play the game as a result is pretty much cutting off your nose to spite your face. Whats the point of your expensive rig then? Of course, the publishers know we will generally put up with this garbage cause we want the product too much. What the fuck can I say? The jagoffs have got me.

    i have many other games wrigley 100s of them many i havent played yet,

    i also do 3d rendering and 3d art i use my PCs muscle for far more then games

    example 6970s 2gb vram frame buffer lets me work more effectively in Mudbox then say a 1.5gb GTX 580 ;) i take all these small things into account, with my rig, its not just gaming it has many other purposes,

    and its not cutting off my nose to spite my face

    again i never bought Bad Company 2 or Vietnam they were given to me, :roll: so yea BF3 can be the greatest experience ever, im just not going to put up with more halfassed shit from EA

    i am willing to bet Origin will eventually flop causing a headache for more ppl then the relief it might offer, just look at Games for Windows live getting shoe horned into xboxlive, lolz im a customer i dont have to put up with the bs if i dont want to, i stopped buying activision do to the online only shitty DRM that dosent work half the time, and if EA wants to force me to use there renamed EA downloader well they can eat a dick to lol. Ea is also the type to give you limits on how long you can download there games AFTER you bought them, i believe Northern Strike was it for 2142 had this glaring issue where if you bought through EA you had only a couple years to download it after which you had to buy it from them again, EA's shady practices in the past has not endeared me to there new pos service. Ill take my chances elsewhere and pass on purchasing BF3, and ill pass on origin,

    Origin is like steam but its not steam i have to rebuild friendslists for what purpose?

    i look at it again as each digital platform being a seperate console and each of there friends list features being much like, Facebook, myspace,google + or windows live messenger, yahoo messenger, aim, etc etc it just seems a bit much im tired of juggly usless shit i shouldnt have to lol

    and it really is to bad because from the looks BF3 will be amazing,

    The purpose of Origin, if anything pertinent, is the ability to play BF3 which by your own admission looks amazing. Do I too wish that weren't the case? Of course. But I think I would put up with a lot of annoying, unjustified crap to play this game. I too have many others but find myself still going back to BC2 most of all and it's a safe bet to assume that go-to game will become BF3 upon release. Hell, I would've "bought the beta" for $30 had I found that for sure a non-pre MOH order would have granted me access. But, again, you do have a point. Just think you're overreacting and I furthermore want to see you on Wake Island and such!

    And, ok, didn't really know you were seriously into modeling and rendering and shit. I'd love to put mine to other use too but it essentially ends up just being a glorified, overpriced console. Thats why I tried crunching for awhile but that shit is really just a monumental waste of electricity and thus money, imo.

    I got mine from Gamestop. What I am hopping is I wont have to install origin to play. Like old school gaming. Nice little patch.exes. If thats the case then I'm ok with EA's decision to leave Steam. HOWEVER if I have to have fucking origin installed to play BF3 its gonna suck and I plan on writing a long letter to DICE......kinda like an old man shaking his fist!

    That's something I always wish for TheMailMan. Especially due to his rotten taste in music.

    we can only hope :)

    i get the issue with origin, and steams no different. i understand why some people feel that way about it,
    it simply isn't that big of a deal to me. I've already got origin, impulse, and steam installed. I have a d2d
    account, a gog account, a bliznet account, and how many more?

    we are on the internet people. it's not that radical to have to register and keep track of accounts. a small piece
    of software running in the background is simply not that big of a deal, provided it works as steam does for example.

    I think you are blaming individual companies and services for what is essentially the natural order. companies are not
    going to work together and make use of every platform just to please the 10% who care. they will just continue to
    push you toward theirs or you simply won't play their games.

    and some are fine with that. but me personally, i want to play these games. and having to have a 30mb piece of
    software installed to do it is again, no big deal.
