Must be playing TDM.............:rolleyes:

LOL more QQ about Origin....To bad its the same shit as Steam with a different GUI. Just because its EA people just got to hate.
Steam is great. The service is great, big library, Valve is an awesome company. Tried and true program. Origin on the other hand is just another BS program like the other 10 competitors out there that is annoying to have and ridiculous. I don't have a problem if they want to have the program, just don't make me use some stupid online DRM to play the game.

What Battlelog? I hated it too in the first day when I played the Beta. Now I love it. Makes it a shit ton easier to join on and play with other people. And track all your stats.

I do like Battlelog. Origin on the other hand is "ok" at best. Saying "it's the samething as Steam with a different UI". Is vastly over simplifying it. On BF 10 year anniversary a friend wanted to pick up BF3 for $10. But he didn't get paid till the next day. So I was going to pick it up and Gift it to him. Guess what, you can't do that on Origin. Since he is a friend of mine in person, he trusted me with his login info, and I purchased the game from him by logging into his account.

Origin is working to get better, but simplifying it down to "they both do the samething, but look different" doesn't cut it, thats far from true. Steam has much more features, and is much more polished. I'm not saying that isn't to be expected, it has been on the market longer. But I do think EA should have taken more time and looked to Steam for more features that should have been added to Steam, or even innovated some instead of basically just giving us a extremely dumbed down Steam.

bah Steam is only on the market longer because EA dragged their ass,

EA downloader or w.e the hell they called it came out roughly the same time as Steam,

EA just dragged ass like a bunch of retards and never understood digital distribution properly untill Steam had already kicked their ass.

Regardless, what Steam and Origin are designed to do and their main purpose. To me they are the same thing with a different GUI. Some features better then they other.

Totally agree. All I ever had was complaints with that damn EA downloader, and heard the samething from many others. But EA didn't bother changing it up, and now here we are. I'll keep using Origin, it's fine for launching the few games I have on it. But Steam is where the rest of my business will go still. And I'd be surprised to hear any differently from others, is anyone here actually going to Origin over Steam for their game purchases that are shared between them?

Regardless, what Steam and Origin are designed to do and their main purpose. To me they are the same thing with a different GUI. Some features better then they other.
Exactly, thats the point of what people said. They prefer steams extra features. Thats like saying a Escort and a Lambo are at their most basic level both cars. You seem to be saying thats means they are equal, others are saying, they obviously are't.

Features matter, like I just said, I don't want to be logging into other peoples accounts just because I can't even gift them a game.

But how much of those extra features is really just bloat and not being used. I use steam to buy and launch games. I use Origin to buy and launch games.

Yeah I don't see a lot of difference. I use them for the same thing. I* don't really have complaints for either.
I do have to say when I have a problem with Orgin Habib is always right there ready to frustrate the hell out of me :roll::roll::roll:

The money the guy has made from the views on that video disagrees. :laugh:

I make videos with my friend for BF3 and other games and post them on our shared channel, doesn't take much time to make a video, maybe an hour or two. (Link to our youtube channel)

This was posted on Facebook by DICE for the BF3 page so obviously this video is getting some attention. They say its the best edit they have seen so far. I think it could be used as a BF3 Multiplayer Trailer TBH.

I already named one, gifting to friends. I use Steam Screenshots all the time. Also I use Steam to launch all of my games, so I don't have to have desktop icons or different ways to play different games, can't do that with Origin either. I could keep naming more ways I use Steam everyday, but I think thats a pretty big list.

All Origin is useful for is buying an EA title and launching an EA game. I would say it's useful for chat, but I never seen anyone on it, so I can't say it is.

Either way, you answer me this. If there was a game offered on both Steam and Origin, which one would you purchase it from?

My feet and my truck can both get me to work, but guess which one I choose everyday.

It wouldn't take too long to get those clips. They aren't massive kill streaks or anything.

I'd take the one that doesn't report in-game usage data...and that'd be Origin.


DOn't get me wrong, STEAM is cool and all, and functionality-wise, I feel it's the better option...but it spies on you...watches your clicks, button-presses, and deaths, and then sends that data to Valve.


Frankly, I can guarantee I was the first user of Origin here on TPU, because I alpha and beta tested it way back when, before EA sold titles online. Half the titles I have in my Origin account are via that testing. Origin, really, is not that great of a client, but when it was annouced that you could get BF3 only there, that was fine by me, since I already used it.

Now, really ,I don't personally care what client i gotta launch for what game. Frankly, I'd rather have none at all for BF3, especially considering the web interface too launch the game...Origin is really just a retailer, and nothing else.

No way dude. It took a little getting used to for all of us but after using it for a little while almost everyone agrees Battle Log is really cool with great features and a definite step forward for these types of games.

There is a reason so many things have moved "to the web". They can also update it independently of the game itself which is great.

the stupid web browser crap is what makes me angry.
That is actually my favorite part of BF3. I did not like it at first, but it's become quite useful dealing with the social aspects of the game, especially joining other users I play with normally.

I'm sure they coudl ahve offered an in-game interface quite easily, but the whole smart-phone aspect of BattleLog would be lost.

The money the guy has made from the views on that video disagrees. :laugh:

I make videos with my friend for BF3 and other games and post them on our shared channel, doesn't take much time to make a video, maybe an hour or two. (Link to our youtube channel)

Lol money "If " he signed up for all that BS.. Why don't you give him a call and ask him how much uber money he made.. I bet it's not much..lol.. If anything at all..

People get all bent out of shape comparing things that have no impact on their life what so ever.. My reply was simply that I didn't like it. No comparisons and unbiased.. Idc who likes it, like it all you want.. I don't.. Maybe EA will catch up one day but for now, they are waay behind in terms of digital distribution..

Regardless I need some freakin people who team up and actually play this game sim style.. You know, like actually watching each others backs and heading out together..

What you guys did when I was on a few nights ago was cool. How you made the squad and we were all in it. Made it waay easier to stay close to yas and watch your back. That's the kind of gameplay I enjoy..

I'd take the one that doesn't report in-game usage data...and that'd be Origin.

DOn't get me wrong, STEAM is cool and all, and functionality-wise, I feel it's the better option...but it spies on you...watches your clicks, button-presses, and deaths, and then sends that data to Valve.

Frankly, I can guarantee I was the first user of Origin here on TPU, because I alpha and beta tested it way back when, before EA sold titles online. Half the titles I have in my Origin account are via that testing. Origin, really, is not that great of a client, but when it was annouced that you could get BF3 only there, that was fine by me, since I already used it.

Now, really ,I don't personally care what client i gotta launch for what game. Frankly, I'd rather have none at all for BF3, especially considering the web interface too launch the game...Origin is really just a retailer, and nothing else.
I could really careless about any sort of tracking. I'd be really surprised if Steam bothered tracking every single button press. But deaths and such, thats watched, but thats for Steamworks games, not for every game. Even if it was for every game, I don't care much, the fact that any client you connect to knows your IP makes me not care so much since they know exactly where I'm at.

The only reason reason I have Origin is because of BF3. I have a few other games on there as well, but I don't play any of them. I'll continue using it to buy EA games if it's an exclusive to Origin, but thats probably as far as I will take it, until they do some vast improvements. The only real notable change I've seen since Origin released I believe back last September is a revised friends list, and that just got patched in like a month ago.

I personally like a client to launch my games. For a few reasons, like Steam keeps all my icons in the same place, then I get screen cap and uploads easily, in-game chat, ability to add these features to non-Steam games, now Steam Workshop. Just a bunch of things I like. Now if it was just a platform to launch the game, like Origin, yeah, not so much a fan of that. I launch my Origin through Steam, and renamed it to BF3, simply so I could save screens and talk to my friends list thats actually online on Steam. Then I just close Origin after since it's only useful to launch the one game I play on it.

To be honest, you seem to be the only one bent out of shape on this. It's a simple video, using EA's intro and outro, made as a contest entry, and your first comment is the guy has no life. And your second comment is snapping saying others are bent out of shape telling people to give this guy a call... with key words like "uber money, BS, Lol". If you had said "I don't like it and x,y, and z are why.". You might get some people debating it with you, but at least they would know where you stand, rather than starting with a blanket statement.

The only thing I don't like about Origin is that I now have 2 accounts that I can't merge.
