Okay I've looked around a bit (okay I googled it) and I can't seem to find a solution to my problem without downloading a full copy of the game with a crack.

I legally purchased my copy of mass effect 3 from my local walmart, came home to install it and I had to download a program called Origin, now it installed fine (origin not the game) but when it came time to activate the game so I could install it, it said that the server was busy or they were doing maintainance. No scheduled maintainance and the server busyness has lasted oh about 12 hours now, so I am assuming I do not have enough bandwidth to properly allow origin to operate. So I need to find a way to install and play my game without going through the loops of Origin, and answers out there or did I just waste a good $60.00
