  • Uranium87568688 Uranium (@Uranium87568688) reported

    @wardenofmyheart @EA @OriginInsider Yeah the issue is that it requires the Origin launcher to even launch which unfortunately won't launch w/o wifi. So annoying; there's no need for TS3 to have that extra hurdle... but wifi has returned thankfully, too bad I have to go to work now lol.

    @OriginInsider Great! How about you now add this months games for all the people paying for your service since you just seemingly decided to skip January. And fix the broken PC app that requires a workaround to just update or download a game.
