I thought this is worthy of a new thread since it's the first EA game back on Steam since the whole Origin debacle, with EA games getting removed from Steam. Hopefully it means future EA games will also make it back onto Steam.

I doubt Valve have changed the rules regarding Steam, so if EA had any issues with providing DLC or not getting user information they don't have them now (Did any DLC actually eventuate for Crysis 2?)

Edit: Yeah, there was DLC, I should have checked.

Looks like they settled with Valve (isn't that why they removed it?)

I dislike Origin and EA in general due to all the DRM--If the server's down, no games 4 u. With steam there is offline mode.

DRM with Crysis 1 was nuts! It took my computer 10 minutes to recognize it was a legit disk and that ugly cursed spinning CD mouse pointer...argh!!

I seriously doubt The Old Republic or Mass Effect 3 will show up on Steam. It's great they put up Crysis 2 Maximum Edition (lol) and all, but unless another big EA games comes back, or is made available when it wasn't previously, it probably doesn't mean much at this point.

Yeah, what's with that? It takes my computer a minute or so to even recognize the disk, takes ages to browse it as well.

probably put it up because there will be no more dlc for it, so perhaps the same can be said about mass effect 3 in the future

Mass Effect 3 has zero chance of showing up on Steam, since not only is it on Origin but it requires it to run for all PC copies (digital and physical). Although hypothetically they could still do it, since Games for Windows Live titles have shown up on Steam in the past (like DiRT 2 and 3) that use Steam (for delivery) and GfWL (for updates/achievements/DLC etc). So guess could be possible to tie in Origin in a similar fashion.

Really? I've never had that problem, starts up instantly for me :unsure: (and before you ask, it's a legal uncracked copy :laugh:). Only "problem" I've had with it is it often reduces my PC to a crawl! but that is the "Crysis effect" in action :p

The Crysis series, another one of those glaringly obvious examples of why you're truly better off to just buy the game and then pirate it because it really is easier and has a much better overall user experience with the pirated version.
