interesting i guess. is this the same team that just made Deus Ex HR? if so, then I'm actually pretty excited about thief 4. HR wasn't perfect, but it was pretty damn good.

After the excellent job they've done with the DX revival, I trust them to apply the same carefullness with Thief 4.

Same studio, different team at least in name, no idea how much assets they share.

They've said few times that it's a different team

BF3 hacked to work without Origin

Just removes Origin apparently. I guess there are problems with it ?

It's a regular crack.
Just as removing any other DRM it violates EULA and can cause problems with cheats protection and game updates.

As much as I don't want to install Origin I wouldn't risk my cd-key being banned or some such. Mixing cracks and online play isn't a good idea.

I haven't heard about any problems with Origin, in fact I barely notice it launches when I start up BF3. I'm going to go ahead and say it is less intrusive and loads faster than Steam. Has anyone had a legitimate problem with it?

Various complaints of uptime or suspicious about it snooping on your hard disk, so far. Latter is a problem in Germany, will look later but all I find is in German.

It's slow as **** and the fact that you have to exit and enter the game every single time you change server is extremely annoying - plus your browser has to be open, which is just a waste of RAM... incidentally I'm not impressed with the new "features" as you might tell.

And not being able to change squads mid-game... :p

I hope the single player portion of Mass Effect 3 doesn't require Origin...

Nahhh.

I vote with my wallet, and so far if EA force us to install this I wont be buying any of their future titles.

So the "Initiation Station" for Saints Row the Third can be downloaded. Basically lets you play around with the character creation options, and nada beyond that.

Briefly entertaining to see what it can do, but there's only so much fun you can have just doing that...

None of that has anything to do with Origin. That whole browser Battlelog thing is completely independent.

edit: And I agree with you, the browser thing is odd. I've gotten more comfortable with it, but it does seem like a waste of resources. It just seems to be aimed at making slower computers have a bad time.

I picked up the PC version via Steam. But apparently there's also Xbox360 and PS3 versions are available over the relevent networks as well..

Your right, I was just venting. Origin in itself is fair enough - but if they want to challenge steam they need to have some sales and so far their games are more expensive then they were on Steam (B3 is about 10$ more than Bad Company 2 was).
