That's hurting my eyes. I'll give you some heat if you make it stop.

Im cleaning it up now lol

heat for the effort, thanks mysmith

Shame I don't have a powerful enough laptop.

Meh... got most of these for free a couple of months ago during EA's promo code balls up xD

Excludes most of their fairly recent games, but some good prices if you haven't already got them

Got some of those on Steam and probably paid less

heat

meh nice sale but i'll pass on origin because of the computer/data scan thing

but the sale's cheapen the franchises!!!

Banned

Don't forget Origin comes with free spyware!

Voted cold, of course.

yea cold cause it's not steam and i don't want to deal with another ecosystem

Terrible customer service. Account was hacked and they did nothing for weeks.

I have 30 days to download?! Then after I can't download it again?! If my computer crashes and I can't download my purchased game then I'll pirate it. ****

Interesting. So I should vote cold on any deal that isn't Amazon because "it's not Amazon and I don't want to deal with another shop"? And what on earth is that meant to mean anyway... I honestly cannot grasp how "dealing with another ecosystem" could be remotely arduous to anyone. If you want to play Burnout Paradise, you click the Burnout Paradise icon and play it - why does it matter that it has Origin in the back-end?

I've re downloaded games from Origin multiple times over the course of several years, and the website says you can "download a game as many times as you like without limit". Where on earth is this 30 days coming from...

Because then you would need to install another program, have another account, have achievements stored somewhere else, have none of the people on your friends list to play with, etc etc. Having all of your games in one place is quite nice.

Just make an account with Origin and have it to auto log in, within a day you'll forget it's there. Then add any game you have on Origin to open from Steam.

Was that so hard?

Origin gets so much unnecessary flak just because it's not the status quo everybody's gotten used to (i.e. Steam), it's really not a big deal once you get down to it.

Anyway this sale is kind of pants, Burnout is the only decent deal out of the lot, since it's the only game on that list that is both worth playing and hasn't been cheaper in another sale.

What makes you think there is spyware? Uninstall all your blizzard games and see if there is a difference

I actually prefer this to steam now, as now I can easily install the client on my SSD and tell origin to install all my games and their respective temp/downloads to my HDD. Though steam's not getting uninstalled in my system just yet - (TF2 is just too fun!)

Ive never had any spyware from the origin games I play (granted I dont play that many)

Origin is a better service, faster downloads and the app isnt a pile of crap like steam.

Nice try, EA.



I think its more to do with having a opinion

I'd put money on these being cheaper during the steam sales

Steam crashes a lot or just hangs.
And I have a very top spec pc, same on windows 7 and 8.

You're not in some of the beta's are you? I've never had a problem with steam and running a high spec too. Had way more problems with origin than steam, plus I do find the steam deals better value (i dont work for them honest)

Worst one was losing all my saved games and origin thinking i hadnt even installed all the games I own. The only exception to this has been BF3, ran like a charm since day 1!
