REVIEWS PAC-MAN and the Ghostly Adventur Review
Is the entire Ghostly Adventures series, including the TV show, a prequel to the rest of Pac-Man’s life? Because in my childhood I seem to remember Pac having a girlfriend and a kid, not worrying about Pac-puberty.

NBA LIVE 15 Review
Yes, NBA Live was horrible last year. But this year's entry is a vast improvement. Just give it a try.

So a while ago, I downloaded Dragon Age: Origins Ultimate Edition from Amazon. Got it for pretty cheap, I believe. Felt like playing it today. Got stopped in my tracks. Before the game can launch, I have to sign in to me EA account. No problem, except it says it's invalid. So I do the forgot my password thing and the email that arrives says:

Quote:
You can get to the Retrieve Password window at any time by following the instructions below:

1. Launch the Origin client.




Aside from being able to play the game that I bought with money that has been on my hard drive minding its own business for months, give me one good reason to abandon all that I believe in to download Origin. Anyone? Hello? Echo...echo...echo...

Because that's what you gotta do to play the game? That's how they want it to be. I think if you want to play EA games, expect to do that no matter what from now on. It's shitty but it's here to stay.

It'd be a nice courtesy if all companies made a lite platform.

They're really trying to make pc gaming unappealing. Soon every publisher will have their own service each more horrid than the last. I already have too many accounts to keep track on.

That will change over time, at least I hope it does. This is all a part of the "Gaming as a Service" model that most companies have been following since 2008/2009. It's not going to stop any time soon.

Go grab yourself a nice skidrow crack or something.
TBP is probably your best bet - gamecopyworld doesn't have anything for DA:O for some reason.
