EA Kills Off Origin

Origin to be replaced by more generic naming convention.

EA is changing the name of their Origin client to "EA Desktop." EA is calling their new app a "next-generation PC gaming platform."

This renaming will...

When you think of the heyday of Tony Hawk titles, you probably think back to the games prior to weird skateboard controllers and the abysmal Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5. You think back to a time in your childhood when you would turn on your old CRT television, power on the PlayStation, and digitally pull off some sick tricks while Goldfinger's Superman blasted in the background. The first couple of Tony Hawk games hold a special place in a lot of our hearts...

    Forza 5 Update Lets You Immediately Access the Car DLC You Purchased

    In the past, if you purchased new DLC cars with real currency in a Forza title, you were not given immediate access to those cars. Instead, the DLC purchase simply allowed you to purchase the cars using in-game currency when you had enough money to do so. Now, with a new content update for Forza 5, it finally looks like Turn 10 is going to fix this rather asinine idea for good.
