Origin is an intuitive and functional download client that eases game downloading.
Origin is a distribution platform for online games offered by Electronic Arts.
This program is a utility for downloading games on the site of the same name. It allows to buy and download games of users choice in a fast and simple way. To do this, Origin requires only one condition: be a member of the platform by creating an account.
Origin provides direct access to the online store to the games already acquired by the player and on any PC. EA catalog has a clear, friendly and neat interface. For games already purchased user can re- download and reinstall if necessary.
Electronic Arts does not forget the social aspect to share his experience playing with his friends outside or in the (in- game) game.
What makes this more handy utility that using a CD or DVD is that it eliminates common concerns relating to removable devices such as scratches, discs and other disused. User will not have problems or updates or losses serial numbers since they will be stored in his Origin account.
The download manager needed some serious attention this week: the progress bar wasn't displaying properly for games with progressive installation, some of the controls weren't clearly labeled and if you made your Origin client window very small the download manager would shove the profile tile on top of the notifications tile. The bar's been tweaked, we used our label maker to take care of the buttons and gave the download manager a stern talking-to about respecting others' personal space.
You can now resize Origin chat windows when they're popped out, instead of having to accept whatever default size they feel like being that day.
Have your text-to-speech messages sounded alittlelikethisrecently? It's hard to hear anything when people are talking too fast or interrupting each other, so we've slowed things down a bit. Now messages should sound more like a conversation and less like an auction.
Now the Origin installation window shows off more recent games in its image loop, because we love our children and want to brag about them.
