*sigh* if only it didn't require me to have Origin...
I jumped, O my brothers, and I fell hard but I did not snuff it, oh no. if I had snuffed it, I would not be here to tell what I have told.

Probably a bit much for the current consoles but i'd like to see it on the new ones.
Here's a lockpick, now jog on.

I thought that too but when I actually saw how good the game will be I put my hatred aside. I didn't want to miss out on this, I suggest you do the same.

I quite liked that Polygon site until they used the word 'addicting'.

Do you not find it amazeballs?
Some say he's half man, half fish. Others say its more of a 70/30 split. Whatever the percentage, he's one fishy bastard.

Origin works fine. Sure its another client you need running but it mostly stays out of your face and works when needed.

Its the high price and DRM that's putting me off. In all honestly though I would only buy this to dabble in anyway so the price would have to be low.

The game looks brilliant and is exactly what PC needs at the moment.
My only issue is the high price from Origin. Surely it should be cheaper than buying a boxed version of the game not the other way around?
Either way, I've managed to order a digital version (CD key) for £30.50, which is the sort of price I was willing to pay, so happy days.
Can't wait to get playing!

The irony being that I am using a lolcat which I also despise.

Don't mind that one though.

Oh I don't hate Origin, I just don't want it on my system. I still disagree with EA's practices of data collection and banning people preventing them from playing (certain) games which they've bought and paid for.
I'm quite happy to go the rest of my life never having another EA product on my pc (and future consoles if it comes to it) :wink:
