The digital version used the EA Download Manager (EADM) which was able to be uninstalled (all apart from the activation files) after the game was installed.
I haven't played that game for over a year and never went past the original DA:O so the Awakenings and DLC were unused.
Fast forward to today - I have a new PC and wanted to install the game. There is no way to install without EADM but EADM no longer works - it comes up saying there is an upgrade. The upgrade is to EA Origin, with all its spyware and completely different terms and conditions to the original EADM. I will NOT install Origin. This means the games cannot be installed. (No, I'm not interested in alternative downloads - I have the legal, registered games and want to use them).
This, to me, raises an important point - the terms and conditions under which I purchased this game have been changed. The original EADM had nuisance value but was not intrusive. It could be removed without impacting on the game. At no time did I consent to anything like Origin & by forcing this on me it is essentially killing the original contract and enforcing a new one under duress. EA clearly stated that the game would be available and able to be reinstalled. It can't be, unless I accept the new contract.
As you may have guessed, I am very, VERY angry.
