There's nothing cathartic about angrily hitting Shift+Delete.

Yes that’s right folks, as of April 4th – this Friday – EA’s digital publishing platform Origin will go fully digital, ceasing to sell physical copies of its games in favour of an entirely digital approach.
This news will no doubt come as a shock to some – like Tim and me, who did not previously realise that Origin actually sold physical copies of games in the first place. “But shouldn’t you two, who write about the industry, kind of know that?” You ask? Yes, maybe we should. Maybe some things slip through and we’re not super computers and we can’t know everything, not all the time. Oh good, this is just great – Tim has gone back to the crawlspace. Are you proud of yourself tough guy? Do you feel like a big tough man now? You make me sick.
If you’d like to learn more (although not a lot more) you can read about it over on the Origin News Blog. Meanwhile I am going to go coax Tim out of the crawlspace, because it’s my turn to hide out in there.
