Dragon Age: Inquisition on Origin only for master race

It was to be expected. EA and Valve don't like each other anymore, so any games from EA will be distributed via Origin instead of Steam. Therefore, it comes as no surprise that Dragon Age: Inquisition will be the same - but does that affect your purchasing decision?

No, EA isn’t spying on you with Origin. Probably.

Ever since Microsoft’s Kinect got linked with the NSA and Sony’s PSN got hacked, security and privacy have been big buzzwords for gaming consumers. People are worried that gaming companies are watching their every little digital move. According to some reports, EA is doing just that.

Play Titanfall for free this weekend

EA and Respawn’s mech-and-pilot shooter Titanfall was the big hit at last year’s E3, and was even rather well received by critics upon its final release. Unfortunately, the game was denied a local release because its cloud-powered servers are too far away from Africa. Maybe you’ve been wondering what the hype is about. If you have a bunch of spare bandwidth, you can give it a shot this weekend – for free.

Origin is having a cheeky sale

Steam and its myriad sales and bundles is responsible for much of the content clogging up your backlog. Chances are, you’ll never got to playing all of those games, because you’re always buying new ones. Origin wants in on that backlog-stuffing action too, and has kicked off a new sale that takes a dig at the Steam games you don’t play – by offering ones it’s certain you will.

Get Battlefield 3 for free

EA really wants you to like them. No really, they are trying to be likable. And, like a cheap date, they're giving it away for free. Well, at least they're giving away another game for free, and this time it's the beloved Battlefield 3 - just in time for the Battlefield Hardline hype.

Titanfall now has even fewer game modes!

Titanfall from Respawn is a great shooter, filled with mech-dropping action. As a multiplayer-only game, it was criticised – when it was indeed criticized – for having too few game modes. and now, on the Pc at least, it has even fewer. Respawn has removed the Capture the Flag and Pilot Hunt modes from the game’s ranked playlists.

Plants vs Zombies is free, for now

Plants vs Zombies is pure tower defense joy - what could be more entertaining than killing zombies with the power of your perfectly planned garden? If you haven't played the full game, you can now grab it for the low low price of... Free!

Origin will no longer ship physical copies of games

Did you know that you can buy your games online through EA’s Origin service and request a physical copy of the game to be delivered to you? Yeah me neither but apparently you can...or should I say you could.

PSA – Grab Dead Space for free

Got an origin account, a decent PC and enough cash for therapy? Well here ya go then, as the original name in horror is free right now on EA’s online service. That’s right, Dead Space, for free. Thank/Curse me later, and grab it while you can by hitting this link.

Win a digital copy of Titanfall for PC!

If it wasn’t for the lovely folks at Evopoints, most of us here in South Africa wouldn’t be afforded the opportunity to play Titanfall. South Africa’s been denied one of the year’s biggest games because network performance, they say,  just wasn’t up to scratch. Maybe you’re wary of buying game keys off the internet, or maybe you’re not convinced the lag will be bearable – so you’ve opted to not grab Titanfall right now. So thanks to Evopoints, we’re giving one away.

Titanfall on Xbox One has an uneven framerate

Titanfall is out today in the US, and on Friday everywhere else. Other than South Africa, that is. It is, by all accounts, a pretty exceptional game, evolving the Call of Duty formula and making it fresh and exciting. It’s the Xbox One’s  marquee title. it’s killer app. And it runs pretty badly. Stand by for disappointment.
