    When I installed Origin, I didn't un-check the box that makes origin start when when my computer boots up and I can't find it in settings. Any one know what I'm overlooking?

    Click the Gear in upper right top (next to "?") --> Settings --> Scroll down (General Tab) and an option is there to deactivate it.

    Baka is intrigued on how well origin runs so far ._. Is it very similar to steam or does it feel inferior/superior in any way?

    Inferior, but only because it's new. It feels more restricted than Steam, and given that it only supports 1 developer. -_-

    Given that they use Battlefrog, I disapprove. EA's just full of suits with more money than sense and probably thinks C++ is a bad grade.

    That is why I only program in A++.

    Origin right now is basically just a somewhat annoying way to play the BF3 beta. It has nowhere near the breadth of steam (obviously) in terms of games and It probably never will. The biggest issue isn't origin, but the battlelog crap that EA is forcing down our throats.
