Realized this morning that there has never been a digital service I like less than Origin. 

Had a notion to play ME2 this morning, and I remember I picked it up through Origin a couple years ago.  I go to log into my account, and it tells me it needs to do an Origin update.  OK, fine.

I log in after the update and it takes me to my games, but tells me it's running in offline mode for some reason.  Odd, since I'm connected to the internet just fine.  There's a big "Go Online" button, I click it, nothing.  I close it out and restart.

This time, I enter my log-in info and it tells me "An unexpected error has occurred.  Please restart Origin."  Frustration level rising, I restart it again.

Now it tells me that my log-in info is not correct.  Never mind the fact that the exact same log-in info worked not 2 minutes ago.  Urge to kill rising, I restart my system and try it one more time.

Allows me to log in...and we're back to the "offline mode" issue again.  Fuck it, I'm done with this.  I have had more problems with Origin that I have ever had with any other client.  Screw you EA/Origin.  Your bullshit "service" guarantees I will never buy another digital game from you.

Whatever, it's always about me.

Good to know, although my point still stands.  Seems like every time I try to get access to Origin, there something that's messed up.  Don't even get me started on trying to get my password recovered last time.

You've clearly not met Origin's mentally disabled cousin, uPlay.

Correction uPlay make Origins look like a well oiled machine.
I must say in all fairness I cant tell you how many times I had to reinstall my OS in the early days of Steam.
It wasn't until 2011 I put that back on my system and loves in now.
