    NFL and NCAA Football 2018

    Patriots owner Robert Kraft has been charged with soliciting prostitution and being involved with human trafficking, which obviously is a pretty horrific story and potentially a big problem for the NFL and Patriots. The details that are being released make for pretty grim reading. EDIT; reports now suggesting the charge is for soliciting, and as of yet they have not ascertained his involvement with the trafficking part.

    Hollow Knight - Soulsvania platformer

    There's also a hidden Hot Spring under the Arena for those who haven't found it Did Lost Kin, Failed Knight and Soul Tyrant last night. Really enjoyed the latter fight - heck of a lot of timed dodging and making use of narrow windows to hit the thing.

    Dirt Rally 2.0

    I'm going to have to get this, aren't I. On another note, I do like Jimmy Broadbent. His stuff is usually quite fun and informative, and he's pretty handy at driving sims too. Tuned into some of his enduro racing stuff over the years.

    Formula One - 2019 Season

    General early thoughts I’ve seen around the web and other places is that Ferrari look great, Red Bull are decent, Mercedes might be a bit behind where they want to be and apparently McLaren really don’t look great on long runs. Testing is a mystery (especially week one) so we’ll probably be getting a slightly better idea of where everyone is at next week

    Wouldn't surprise me if McLaren at least tried/are trying. Am sure Andreas Siedl could help push that one over the line!

    They're also going to court in March as their logo bears more than a passing resemblance to some bike manufacturer. Rich Energy: Whyte Performance Bikes: (Incidentally, if anyone's really into somewhat shady funding coming from an almost-impossible-to-find energy drink firm, check out Leopard Energy Drinks and their Moto3 team in motorbike racing. Have been going since 2010, apparently the only place you can find their product is ordering online from some obscure German supermarket...)

    This lot are going to be a laugh this season, aren't they?

    Hollow Knight - Soulsvania platformer

    Went back to this over the weekend and made pretty good progress! Fairly close to the end but have a ton of optional stuff to get done. I started this after chaining through all of the original series Mega Man games in a row so I was flying along, but having left for a while I found myself to be a bit rusty. Did that one long room in Deepnest yesterday where you have to pogo on the top of a flying centipede thing whilst dodging spikes. Ugh. Got it done in the end but boy oh boy did it bring my Switch's wellbeing into jeopardy at times. Think I might activate the Grimm Troupe at some point and also keen on doing at least the Trial of the Conqueror so I can get the final upgrade for the nail. Overall I've seriously enjoyed it. Some of it can be obnoxiously difficult at times, but almost all of it is the ol' chestnut of pattern recognition and practice. Don't think I am going to go for full completion (112% or whatever it is) but there's a lot left that I reckon I should have fun with . Also, the music is ace.

    I’ve never seen anything like that - that was utterly, utterly mad. What a race!

    Ah , now that is a quality example of a terrible F1 car. Apparently at the German Grand Prix Michele Alboreto got so irked at it during practice that he came into the pits, got out of the car and asked the lead designer to take a stroll with him. He proceeded to take him to the Williams garage, point at the car and say ‘Look! That is what a Formula One car is supposed to look like!’. Around the same time, the FIA made a somewhat hamfisted attempt at banning driving aids from F1 mid season. That Lola was announced as the only legal car, not because they’d removed all the gizmos they had on it, but because it had none of them to begin with. @carred - yup, looks like it is. They’ve found a loophole that the legal dimensions of the front wing only apply to the mainplane the endplates. The additional planes seem to be able to be whatever, so looks like they are trying to wash most of that air inside the front wheels. Not sure if it’ll work, but you can bet that all the other teams will be studying it carefully at Barcelona next week

    Actually, talking of cars with noses they didn't normally run... McLaren and Senna tested this at Monza around the time of the 1990 Italian Grand Prix:

    Yes, you are both mostly correct and slightly incorrect. As a reward, I gift you both this picture of the 1994 Pacific Ilmor PR01 in its rare, hardly-seen low nose configuration that they ran in the final few races of that season. BEHOLD.

    That was Jos-Verstappen-at-Hockenheim-1994 levels of burn there!

    Fun trivia quiz: which team had a similar diamond-esque livery pattern in the early/mid 1990s?
