Re-Dubz #4: Origin Leads To Suicide

This week on Re-Dubz, a man is so distraught over having to deal with EA’s Origin service that he’s threatening to jump off a building. That’s as rational a reason as I’ve ever heard to commit suicide, if I do say so myself.

I have not yet found anything to be cheaper on Steam. I just bought Arkham Asylum GOTY for 15 bucks on GFWL, I think it was like $30 on Steam. Before that I bought Witcher 2 at Amazon for 39 bucks, it was like $49 on Steam. Every time I buy a game, I check Steam first for some reason, but it’s not yet had the lowest price on anything. So where does this “it’s cheaper on Steam” come from? It’s usually cheaper at Frys or Best Buy, much less Internet choices.

And Crysis 2 for that matter is 39 bucks on Origin. I believe it was $60 on Steam before it was taken down. Sorry to the Steam fans that wanted to pay an extra $20, I guess.

I don’t always buy games on steam everytime because they may be cheaper. When they have sales though, their prices are unbeatable. I buy them on steam because they are a good reliable system to manage my games and their social network and game overlay system is great. They give all developers they same limelight as each other. I have been using it forever and now a new storefront comes out that offeres less features and wants to throw there weight and crappy software on my computer just so they can make more profit. No way. EA turned their back on the PC a long time ago. Now they want me to trust them again in this way? By limiting my selection to what I can and can’t buy from steam. What if they said that walmart or best buy couldn’t carry one of their games? What then? It’s the same thing. I don’t blame the developers that EA hires. They are the ones that suffer though when they limit the storefronts that they can market their games in.
