Because I wants to play it
Is this going to unlock soon?
Mine said 1:01 am. It errored out the first time I tried to download it, then it downloaded a 150 mb file and said it was full install and it doesn't tart when I run it for obvious reasons. Tried repairing the install but nothing. God dam I hate Origin/EA.
@shaggydude: Mine just does pre loading, runs though the EULA crap, then when I hit finish it downloads a 250 mb file and that's it. Nothing else. Can't find anything online yet about it. Tried verifying the install, restarting origin/pc. Same file every time.
So apparently people who preordered from Origin are still having difficulty even seeing the game as released, whereas those who preordered elsewhere or are just buying the game now from Origin are already downloading or playing. In short:
@shaggydude: Same as before. Downloaded, hit play, it says it's launching, and then nothing happens. I didn't think it was possible to dislike EA or Origin any more. First/last time I give them the benefit of the doubt and go against my personal rule of avoiding their games/services.
Thought I might stay up and play for an hour before bed. After all, if it unlocked at midnight EST, that's only 9PM PST right? So I get an email that says "yo, you can play your game." So I open Origin. Game not released yet? Huh.
Oh well. Guess I'll play it tomorrow. No big deal. I just know that if it had been Steam, it probably would have been pre-loaded and ready to unlock by now. The interface doesn't even say when it's out. Hell, the store didn't actually say either. Yo EA, Origin needs some work. A lot of work. So much work you might want to give up and go back to Steam?
@saadnation: That's what's so sad/maddening about it. Some times they do make good games but all the BS that goes on around them is just not worth it to me anymore. Crap like this on top of terrible business practices with DLC and microtransactions just means that a game has to be something really special for me to want to be willing to put up with it.
@jnal: I was just hoping that they at least learnt something from Diable 3 which I think was a worldwide release and was probably a major factor in crushing their servers. But yea bugs and I hope from a different thread earlier someone mentioning it not saving after 2 hours of play. I hope that doesnt end up happening to alot of people.
Mine "Unlocked," but apparently i have to wait till March 7th to play. I live in California, shouldn't it have been released on the 5th?
March 7th is when it launches in Scandinavia so I have no idea why it's saying that for you in California. High five, Origin?
Still no unlock here in Texas. The pre-order "grayed out" box appears in "My Games" but it's still saddled with a fat banner reminding me it's not released. Guess I'll go to bed and hope it's up in the late morning/early afternoon when my ass wakes up.
Feel free to add me; that quicklook has really got me worried about single player agency in this title.
