EA's Origin Access was launched today for PC. I had no interest in EA Access for Xbox but I've signed up for Origin. There's a lot of EA games I have only a passing interest in, such as Battlefront and Need for Speed, which I wouldn't pay $60 each for, but will gladly pay $5/mo to put a few hours into. I'll also use it for Unravel next month.

Anyone else planning to sign up, or are currently a member of EA Access?

Considering I haven't played any EA games, nor had any desire to, since 2012, I don't think that's very good value for money. Tongue

Nothing in 2016 piques your interest? Unravel, Mass Effect (maybe), Mirror's Edge?

Mirror's Edge is the first EA game since 2012 that interests me, but one potential game of interest is no reason to subscribe to a service like that.

EA is just so incredibly bland these days. They manage to suck the interesting parts out of every single game they produce.

I got the email and was interested until I looked at the list. I already own everything I was interested on that list, so it wouldn't help me.

Yeah, no.

It wasn't a bad deal on Xbox; I signed up when it first launched and the title selection was far more limited than it is now, and still got my money's worth. Played FIFA and Madden which are games I'd never pay full price for but wanted to try out.

The only reason I wound up canceling is that my backlog was so huge to begin with that it didn't make sense to pay money for games I wouldn't have time to play.

I'm super excited for Unravel, and the fact that they green lit a new Mirror's Edge is really encouraging. If Mass Effect Andromeda ends up coming out this year (I doubt it), I'll be spending a lot of time with EA games this year.

I logged into Origin for the first time since signing up for Origin Access and was dismayed by the lack of titles available. I thought EA Access on consoles offered up to 10 hours on ANY EA game - Battlefront, Titanfall, what have you. That wasn't the case, though. I cancelled the service, I'll be putting a few hours into Unravel and then moving on.
