My phone is still stuck on vancouver time. It refuses to change. It's trying to tell me something.Tom Mills
Unpacked, washing on. Normality very much resumed. Little bit of passport drama on the way home but not quite as bad as the way out.Tom Mills
@LiamPetersen bloody painful lol but we've got a lot of respect for the embargo's we're given and would never break it.Dave Bryant
@Calfreezy yeah mate :) that was the best thing about EAC tbh just meeting all the guys and giving iur feedback about FIFA direct.Dave Bryant
@MUFan23 no need to hope mate. We've got shit loads of content.Dave Bryant
@Calfreezy under embargo but its only a short one. Gamescom is actually a possibilty....Dave Bryant

@mikeastuto had a long chat about that particular topic with aaron. Will discuss it on the podcast.Tom Mills
At the airport. *sob*Tom Mills
@TGI_TwistedMind first touch control really emphasises just how "free" the ball is.Dave Bryant

@dav3duncan yeah was brilliant mate. Lots of really good stuff in comparison to when we played last time.Dave Bryant

@kleiberl hey mate, we sat with Aaron McHardy for about 3 hours and discussed everything. Impressions/podcast coming soon.Dave Bryant
Last day today :( big press event at EAC where we'll be seeing lots of cool #FIFA13 presentations and grabbing some interviews #FSBatEACDave Bryant
@ruffneckc yeah it does and they mentioned some tuning they've done so full backs don't get too sucked in to forward play.Tom Mills
@Dave797 @PompeyHumber @teebs33 @FIFASoccerBlog I won that game in every way that counts.Romily Broad
@PompeyHumber @teebs33 @FIFASoccerBlog @RomilyBroad I did batter Rom though. His "its an E3 build" excuse just didnt wash.Dave Bryant
@teebs33 @FIFASoccerBlog @dave797 @RomilyBroad I was encouraging his comeback vs QPR. How did Torres miss in 90th? Oh yes, Dave messed up!Simon Humber
Really great day today, much #FIFA13 sampled and amazing access to the guys behind the game. Huge press event tomorrow before we return.FIFASoccerBlog
@NathanLeeGibson not really, except everything is smoother than when we last played, and it was good then.Tom Mills
We can talk about gameplay though and it felt super tight compared to the E3 build. Screws really tightened up in all areas. Impressed.Dave Bryant
We can answer gameplay stuff so feel free to ask about that, although timing is crap as uk based guys are asleep except probably @CalfreezyTom Mills
@Dave797 I heard you guys are getting a new build tomorrow so some of the issues your seeing should be fixed.VanCityVilla
Saw and played some truly awesome things today. Cannot wait to share once the time is right. not long to wait #FSBatEAC #FIFA13Dave Bryant
