Titan Falls: Titanfall Error 503 Stops Players From Playing

Update: Servers now seem to be functioning again. Original story: If you're wondering why we don't have a review of Titanfall yet - or why, to their credit, so many of the write-ups out there don't yet have scores attached - it's because review events hosted by EA are a poor way of experiencing EA games. It's far more useful to wait for them to…

Your Move, Steam: Origin Offers Full Refunds

Well now, here is something. If you go through every article we've ever written about EA's Origin service (because what else do you have to do on a beautiful, possibility-packed, er, Tuesday), you'll find that we've basically just written a series of pleas. "Come on, EA. Just do something - anything - worthwhile, interesting, or different with your proprietary ball-and-chain," our posts may as well…

EA ‘Confident’ Origin Issues Won’t Plague Euro SimCity

In the words of RPS' totally unneeded, never sighted on a semi-regular basis error screen, SimCity's having a bit of a wobbly. Some people, however, haven't even been lucky enough to get into its now-infamous queues - let alone experience the majesty of realizing they might eventually get to play the videogame they purchased. So then, is this a preview of the hoops Europe gets…

Lakes Boil: Ubisoft And EA To Sell Each Others Games

Everything is topsy-turvy. Up is left, down is blue. Ubisoft have just announced that they're to start selling third-party games on their online store, Uplay. (Which could mark the first time anyone has ever looked at the online store, Uplay.) And even more peculiar, they're also going to start selling their own games via EA's Origin download service. Do words and numbers even have meaning…

Play4Free Is No More: EA Debuts Origin Free To Play

If you have anything even vaguely resembling a working knowledge of the English language, you'll probably agree that Play4Free - EA's diabolical label for its gaggle of free-to-play offerings - was painful, difficult to look upon, and probably responsible for the deaths of millions. But now, on this happiest of days, EA's kicking it to the curb in favor of Origin Free to Play, a…

Origin Accounts Hacked – Maybe Change Your Password

Uh-oh. Eurogamer are reporting that a number of people have woken up this morning to find that their EA Origin account has been hacked. Receiving emails telling them that changes have successfully been made, recipients are not too delighted since they never asked for any. And then of course getting control of their accounts back again is a great big palava. It's even happened to…

EA’s Origin Leaves The Doors Unlocked, Looting Ensues

As spotted by Kotaku, this weekend EA's Origin had a sudden burst of not quite intentional generosity. As a thank you for completing a survey, a few customers were sent a voucher for $20 for the digital store, allowing them to download a free game. Except, well, EA forgot to make that code a one-time only thing. Can you guess what happened next?

Et Tu, Uplay? – Ubisoft Relaunches Its PC Store

The digital distribution plot thickens. In the beginning, there was Steam, and it was... not great. But it slowly trended upward in its tiny virtual vacuum until it expanded into the empire we all know and mostly love today. And people noticed. So along came Origin, with its EA stamp of approval and not much else - though slow progress has seen it take a…

Errrr: Origin’s “Landmark” 9.0 Update

Let me begin this by noting that, in actuality, EA's at least been paying solid attention to Origin lately. Lending a helping hand to crowd-funded games taking their wobbly first steps was a smart idea, and putting out a big call for input from users is a much appreciated gesture - assuming, of course, that EA actually takes resulting criticisms to heart. That said, Origin…
