I wanted to play some BF4 yesterday and it said, "Origin is currently experiencing technical.. blah" Today, I get this and I can't even play offline..? I have BF4 and NFS World and towards of them I get this message.. "Game is not relesed yet" When I click on "Go Online" nothing happens.. wtf..?

Here's a screenshot.

Origin occasionally corrupts ITSELF and prompts me to re install. happens every few months or so. ANNOYING AF

Annoying indeed! Specially if I gotta redownload over 20gb (BF4). I wish, BF4 was on Steam. EA and their bs of a software..

Because Steam NEVER has those kind of problems.... oh wait.

What I do with big games like that is keep a backup of the folder and update that backup each time there is a big update, so if something happens like it did to you I don't have to download the whole thing again.

Yeah... I thought about that when this already happened. Unfortunately I was up for over 48 hrs. at that time of the install and my brain didn't think about backup.

Dude, that ain't healthy or safe.

Sleeping is nice.... especially when you have dreams of Jessica Alba.

Yeah but what can I do about insomnia? Meds don't help so gaming keeps me calm. You're right about Jessica Alba dreams :p

I have, I have tried just about everything. It's gotten a little better lately. If it wasn't for gaming, I'd lose my mind throughout these long nights.

I advise profuse amounts of marijuana and NyQuil worked for my friends insomnia.

Ahh.. if only it worked for me. I've been blazing everyday for past 8 years, I have a green card. I get the best herb here in Denver CO, best hash. But even mixing hash and nyquil is weak for my insomnia, insomnia over powers everything. Sometimes I'll get some sleep, sometimes not :/
