I've uninstalled it just as many times as I've installed it. It seems like something always conflicts with origin. It's probably just me but the issues and ea's wishy washy stance on drm has been off putting. There's a few things on it I'd like to play but I'd rather just deal with steam.
Hmm, not sure what it could be. As that is honestly the first I heard of someone having those types of problems. I've had problems like that but with Games for Windows Live. That is no longer around. I install the game and let Steam launch it.
So far I only have games that came with their respective humble bundles, but if I do buy anything it will be an Origin exclusive. I don't plan on buying something that's available on Steam.
