Let’s get better acquainted with Samantha from Mexico!
Tell us about yourself.
an 18 years old girl from México and I really love Need For Speed. I’m
currently at level 50 in NFS World. Some people know me by my Youtube channel
and because I'm the creator of the WG Comics in the site World-Garage. I
like drawing in my spare time, whether of cars, people or cartoons.
How long have you been playing NFSW?
the beta number 3! I was so excited to be part of this game. I still
remember my little purple Mazda 3 which was my first car I drove in that
What is your favourite car(s) in NFSW?
GTR R35! I am a fan of all the Nissan cars, in the game and in real
life. It's the perfect car for me. I love my other cars too, such as my
Silvia or my 2000GT-R. These cars are Amazing!!! My favourite tier 2
cars are the awesome Subaru Impreza and epic Skyline R34. My favourite
tier 3 is the Porsche 959.
Your most memorable experience about NFSW?
must say it was when some World-Garage members and I were cruising
around the new cities when they were added long time ago. It was my
first cruise with them. They were so friendly, that they
infected you with joy! It was very fun.
What do you like most about NFSW?
Pursuits and Team Escape! I like to hit the cops and try to destroy
them, while the pursuits gets me all competitive. How many cops can I
disable now? How much bounty I can get in one pursuit? I love those kind
of challenges, like the missions from Most Wanted. As for Team Escape, I
prefer it more than races because it's more cooperative and doesn´t
really matter who finish first, everyone wins!
What other console or online game do you play?
All my NFS Games are for PC. I am a PC Gamer, however, sometimes I’ll play games for the Nintendo DSi.
Favourite car or driving scene in a movie?
like the cars from Fast & Furious: Tokyo Drift. My adrenaline goes
up seeing those beautiful cars drifting that way. I also won't forget
the scenes of Bumblebee and Autobots in Tranformers: Dark of the Moon! I
get goosebumps just hearing the sounds of the engine in that great city
What song or music do you rock out to while playing NFSW?
music in the game is ok, but if I want to listen to something
different, I play Rise Against or Deadmau5. I do not know if it's
my imagination only, but the performance of my cars increases when I
listen "Help is on the Way" or "Savior" from Rise Against. Linkin Park,
Avenged Sevenfold and music from composer Steve Jablonsky are other
When you’re not playing NFSW, what else are you up to?
is my favorite hobby. I am a beginner when it comes to photoshopping,
but it is really fun to try to make some awesome designs,
photo-manipulations and stuff. Besides studying, I watch television. My
favourite shows include Top Gear, South Park, MTV and Discovery.
Team Edward or Team Jacob?
I hate Twilight so much! But if I have to choose, it would be Team
Jacob. Sorry, but I think Edward is too simple. He’s not "spicy”
enough. I hope I don’t get crucified for what I just said.
