Drink lots of water and go to bed. It's DX10 now, so quite nice.

Actually, its an interesting topic. I've found that computer gaming is one of the very few entertainment activities that alcohol doesn't enhance or complement.
In fact, any amount seems to degrade the experience... well at least for me it does anyway.

Are you saying I'm prone to making off topic comments? Actually my folks being gone does have a bit to do with increased drinking and game playing. Not that I am too worried about hijacking a spammers thread anyway.

I can't play any game when really drunk. Degraded experience, degraded performance.

For several resaons i think to know that smoking something can increase experience a lot, while degrading performance just small enough to be still able to play.
TestDriveUnlimited for example is quite nice in such circumstances. Racing through hawaii with a sports car is even more fun that way.
(I wouldn't drive a car in real life when i have been drinking any amount of alcohol or used any kind of drug. Not only beacause it is illegal here in austria, because it would be really plain stupid and dangerous to do so).

Greetings

Dru
