    That rumor doesn't make much sense, vanin. Steam does patches automatically, almost invisible to the user. I doubt Steam would have any trouble serving patches to Mass Effect players. I'm sure it was just about money, and EA wanting more of it.

    EA is super greedy and has been for years. Why else do you think we get a new Madden and a new Tiger Woods every year with little to no innovation? They just want a piece of Valve's action. EA is, after all, a publisher.

    I'm buying it, I'm just way into the ME series so of course I have to play ME3.
    To declare that a personal, inner experience gives certainty about the workings of the universe is to assign far too much value to one’s subjective sense of conviction.
    I’m not that arrogant.

    The brain, marvelous instrument though it is, isn’t infallible. It can misfire, seize or hallucinate, and it can do so in a way that’s utterly indistinguishable from reality to the person experiencing it.

    And that's entirely the problem. If you buy it from Gamestop or Target because you don't care for Origin... sorry, you can't even play the game (or return it!) without Origin installed. How shitty is that?
    When I got Cata from battle.net just before launch it was more expensive than boxed in a local store

    And what store lets you return pc games?

    None now, due to heavy DRM like Steam & Ubisoft, The Steam DRM is alright, but you should be able to gain a refund of the game if you meet the minimum system requirements and it's not running it / It's very sluggish, the game simply isn't enjoyable for you (In this case it's games like Dead Island, Brink, RAGE etc.)

    If you live in the UK then you are guaranteed refund of the game if you request it within 7 days.

    Crazy

    In Denmark it's like if you break the plastic wrapping you cant return it. Been like that with CD's, DVD's and games since forever..

    Tell me about it, same country XD

    Do mind you do have a chance to get a game refunded on steam within 7 days, it's somewhere in the EU law about returns, let me search for it.

    EDIT: Steam deleted the thread due to people starting to get refunds, money greedy bastards, but I found an old archive page.

    So much for free speech in the US.
    Know that under current UK and EU law, you have the right to demand a refund from Valve.

    From a recent post on Reddit: http://www.reddit.com/r/gaming/comme...fund_on_steam/
    And screenshot of successful refund: http://i.imgur.com/GJ7Qf.png

    Corresponding EU law: http://eur-lex.europa.eu/LexUriServ/...7L0007:EN:HTML
    Known as the "Right to Cancel" in UK, or "Right of Withdrawal" in EU.

    Cool! Stuff like that is good to know

    But I only buy games that I know I'll like, so it doesn't really matter to me

    None of them do. Which was my point: you've bought something you can't use and can't return. You're screwed. That's fairly unique, as consumer products go.

    Edit: Props to the UK for having decent consumer protection laws.

    I'm so going to buy it. Beaten ME1 and ME2 couple months ago, so I'm really excited about ME3. Origin is not a problem, I had Crysis 2 for ages there and I also got BF3 few weeks ago. Can't see what's the panic about, everything is cool.

    I wonder If people are purposely trying to keep the results the name, lol.
    Anyways, yes I will buy ME3 for PC because I can no longer stand the bad graphics and the 30 fps lock on consoles. I'd rather deal with hell hole called "Origin" than to get a dumbed down experience.
