Origin is a game application created by Electronic Arts (EA) to manage all your EA games. It allows you to buy, install, update your games and chat with friends. Quite similar to the well known Steam by Valve Software, but with less game titles…

Double it up

Here’s a little tweak for those of you who uses more than one hard drive (you should). To reduce your main data hard drive’s wear and read/write bottleneck, you should (whenever possible) redirect all your program’s cache & temp files to a separate hard drive. Among those programs, Origin, as bad and crappy as people may say, allows you to customize its cache file location.

Origin is cool

So simply go in your Origin’s settings and choose a new location for all your game downloads!

FREE BONUS

Dead SpaceDead Space 1 is currently free on Origin! Grab it while it’s hot!

Enjoy!
