    Lol. It's just that it's so typical for me, generally if I buy anything it goes on sale 5-20 bucks less within a week.

    Actually, apparently, you can.:slap: Crysis 2 comes with EA's Origin Crap Requirement. I'm fighting with GF right now asking for a refund.:nutkick: I couldn't even load the game without downloading Origin and never activated it. Not sure if I'll have any luck. :banghead:

    Okay, I despise EA as well but still, origin does all the same things as steam. I use it for a couple of games. I have an idea, you can give the game to someone who doesn't hate origin just for the heck of it being related to ea.

    If you don't get anywhere with a refund do a giveaway here on TPU if you are that bothered by Origin.

    I found Origin to be very basic and not that bad actually, it is not a giant obtrusive bloatware.

    Well as long as you don't pirate games/software then you are perfectly fine so why not suck it up and deal with it? If I have to agree to their terms of service to use my content then fuck what it says I paid for it so I agree. I don't have anything to hide so they can look all they want on the other hand if someone does have something to hide I can see why they would be SO against agreeing to Origin's invasive nature.

    The problem with a sniffing EA is that it leaves a potential backdoor if Origin gets cracked ("hacked" as some folks put it). Interference into one's PC by Steam, Origin etc. should be limited to an absolute minimum.

    Please, tell me I'm not the only person that spent a few minutes wondering why you'd be fighting with your girlfriend and asking for a refund . . .
