It seems that some people have enjoy a little more than just the upcoming movie scenes Ice skating 4. While EA continues to give fans a fresh update on a game that’s been around for a long time, the developers wrote a blog post to say there’s a limit to that sentiment. and ask everyone to please stop playing a leaked build of the game.
