    More games were added ... the 2 Battlefront, the last 3 Battlefield and the "missing" Mass Effect games, 3 and Andromeda.

    I guess they're going to add new games every week through this month? Discounts on their catalog are set to end with Steam Summer Sale (ends in July 9th)

    Games that still are not on Steam:

    Sims and SimCity games
    Respawn games (Titanfall, Apex Legends)
    Sports games
    A Way Out
    Saboteur
    Dead Space 3
    Alice: Madness Returns
    Syndicate

    And then there are "retro" games.

    As long as they keep the Steam versions dependent on Origin, I really see no point in buying EA games on Steam.

    This came with the original Alice on Origin for a brief period, which I missed out on. They never sold it individually or as DLC. If it comes to Steam with the original included, I'll re-buy it.

    Twice the services means twice the awesome!

    Actually, it's to trick kids who don't read the fine print to buy it on steam, then they have to install Origin to play it, and when they have Origin they might as well buy more games on EA's storefront. Funneling in new customers is what's it about. What's weird is that they didn't do this before but gated their games off Steam entirely before.

    Titanfall 2's singleplayer is surprisingly worthwhile, FYI.

    It really seems like Electronic Assfuckers wants to keep American McGee's Alice an Origin exclusive. They either see no value in its re-release, or too much value, in which case it would make sense to make it exclusive to funnel more saps into their web of dark patterns, and keep hold of the old ones.

    Wait, it's not even sold digitally on Origin anymore. So clearly "no value" then. It would probably require much work to make it compatible with modern systems anyway.

    I think there would be the fourth wave of games next Thursday (and then maybe fifth?). Not sure about the retro (80s, 90s) games but I think they will release all of their games that are available on Origin (maybe not Titanfall 1).

    They're going to sell the subscription service on Steam, and they can't add third-party games like they do with Origin Access, so it makes sense they release more games on Steam to sweeten the deal.

    Looks like Titanfall 2 will be the best seller among JunEA Steam releases. It's around the top end of the global seller list and hit the highest concurrent player number (8,393) among the JunEA releases.

    Be advised that Steam has a hard limit of 100 Creators/Curators that you can put on Ignore. Once you reach that limit Steam will throw silly error messages at you.
