  • BigSocrates posted a message in the forum topic Do you play best sober, buzzed, or drunk?. on the General Discussion board

    My reflexes are not good enough to play impaired, and my judgment and focus get worse too. I don't drink very much, but I basically never play games drink for this reason.

  • BigSocrates posted a message in the forum topic EA is not done making Need for Speed games. on the Need for Speed board

    I liked the 2012 Need For Speed: Most Wanted game, and if they could make something like that again this would be good news. The 2010 Hot Pursuit was also great. But I don't think EA is that company...
