    I never realized Apple users knew there was such a thing called 'computer gaming'.

    Thank you for reminding me why I don't buy an apple computer.

    "Batman: Arkham City, Dragon Age 2, Dirt 2, and several Lego titles." <~~~~ Yeah, ummmm. I don't think so.

    Now the least popular game client can be on the least popular gaming platform. Thanks EA, you bring things to those who probably could careless.

    Are they sure it's wise to have Dragon Age 2 front and centre of their advert?
  7. Just yesterday I had a "fun" Origin experience. Wanted to try out the new Crysis 3 beta. Had to like Crysis 3 in facebook to get the serial, fired up origin, wanted to download it, nastygram: for "children's security" this game can only be downloaded between 23:00 and 06:00 in Germany. Fun fact 1: I had to enter some numbers confirming my age of my identification card on facebook in order to get the serial.

    Fun fact 2: I do not even life in Germany.

    I for one will never buy an EA game again. Their tech support is non existent. If they ever release a game that I would like to play I'll simply pirate it. It's far easier than trying to deal with them.
