Cool Humble Bundle

Humble Bundle did a good job at releasing some great games like Dead Space 1 & 3, Mirrors Edge & Medal of Honor.

https://www.humblebundle.com/?originbundle

All for $1 minimum? Why yes, this deal is a steal. And for $4.50, you also get Battlefield 3 and Sims 3.

All the games except for BF3 and Sims 3 are available through steam with this deal. So pay $1 minimum to get all the games and you will get a steam key as well as an origin key.

DS3 is also Origin only.

Pay what you want. On their own, all these mind-blowing titles would cost about $215, but we're letting you name your price! Pay any price to get soundtracks for The Sims 3 and Battlefield 3. A purchase of $1 or more gets you Origin* keys for all the games, and you can also get Steam keys for Dead Space, Crysis 2 Maximum Edition, Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box, Medal of Honor, and Mirror's Edge! Beat the average to also get The Sims 3, two expansion packs in The Sims 3 Starter Pack, and Battlefield 3.

Is there a major problem with Origin? Just picked all of these games up for $5, I think that's a superb deal.

I have friends who use Origin and have (almost) no complaints whatsoever.

It's spammy, incomplete, redundant with Steam, and likes to use cpu and network bandwidth randomly for no reason that's beneficial to me in any way.

First time I used it it would leak memory after closing certain games. I'd hope they at least fixed that by now.

Main reason for me is I don't support having multiple CDS's running because every large publisher wants a little bit of the steam pie. Especially EA. It's anti-consumerism at it's worst.

Oh, I see.

Well, I don't own any of those games, so I will be using all the Steam keys. I put in $5 just to round it up.

Unfortunately I'm not sure whether I can run The Sims 3 without Origin at all, but we will see. I might have to use Origin anyway if that is the case, because I have wanted to try out that game for quite some time.

EDIT: Looks like some of The Sims 3 is available on Steam, but not everything. Guess it's Origin for The Sims 3 for me, then. Just looking towards the future, assuming I like the game... probably will be picking up all the expansions. I'd play BF3 if I had the time to invest in another multiplayer game.

Just make sure that you don't have Origin set up to start on launch, and only run it when you play a game, close it when you close the game.

Also close it when it's downloading when you play any other game just to be sure.

Wonder if I still have the problem where downloading BF3 resets when I close Origin. I got it free from buying SimCity (which is just bad) before everything was fixed with it, and I never finished downloading it because it just reset the DL. :P

Also, I think if you download the DLC for The Sims 3 through Origin, you can copy and paste the files into the Steam version and use them.
