While obtaining the momentarily free offer of the full Sims 2 collection, naturally I felt my hairs stand on end. I dreaded the prospect of having to install the proven spyware vessel that is Origin. I already have another game on it, but played it just once, because my quadcore system was slowed down (whilst not playing interestingly).
I can’t find a lot of press on it, but there appears to be an outcome: Outcome. Hahahha…. Haven’t tried it yet, for fears of it being just another botnet, but one source seems to imply it simply automates a process that can be carried out manually in order to run games off of Origin without running Origin.
Caveat emptor, I’ll try it soon.
