Being too dense to find the offline mode button makes Origin an always online DRM service? News to me. Get your facts clear before you run your mouth


Whoa whoa whoa whoa calm down el capitano

Origin has put my download speeds are 15MB/s in the past, despite only having about a 60Mbps connection on a good day. My best speeds on Steam have been about 7MB/s.

My Origin has always DL'd at about 1.2 MB/s, while Steam only at 800~ KB/s. Only reason I use Steam more is because it has a much lower chance of going the way of GFWL and because it has better and more sales for games. However, if I see a game at the same price on both Origin and Steam, I'll switched to usually going for Origin now.

tl;dr : if GTAV comes out for both Origin and Steam for the same price, I'm getting the Origin version.


So you enjoy always online DRM I guess?


Except Origin has an offline mode that actually works? Stop talking out your ass.

Legitimate reasons for calling Origin a turd have proved to be few and far between. For example, most people just call Origin a turd and then leave the thread without actually giving reasons...

Oh boy a "Steam vs Origin 'I'm too inept to use both'" argument broke out. Jesus himself didn't see this coming.

Origin almost has 2x the speed. Its your connection TC, Origin is already proven to be the better service, it just has less games than steam.


It's already been proven that Origin artificially inflates speed by downloading the compressed file but showing the download speed as if it wasn't compressed essentially doubling what your speed appears to be.
