"As spotted by the canny denizens of the Escapist forum, there is a quite extraordinary clause in the EULA of EA’s new game service, Origin. One that may well make you think twice about letting the software on your PC. Under the title of “Consent to Collection and Use of Data”, the clause states that by installing Origin you are giving EA permission to “collect, use, store and transmit technical and related information that identifies your computer, operating system, Application usage (including but not limited to successful installation and/or removal), software, software usage and peripheral hardware.”"

I quite like the internet, I use it often and I've been playing games on PC only a short amount and I'm loving it.

Thankfully I've only come across ubisoft's and I downloaded a 'crack' thing to play the game while not connected to the internet(I bought the game, if I want to play while offline it should be my choice =/) main reason was because it kept disconnecting from the server and it freezes the game.

This was for Splinter Cell Conviction and Prince of Persia The Forgotten Sands, they should really stop with this rubbish and make it more 'user friendly', people will always find a way around it so don't do this stuff.

"Maximum, Game".
