    New DRS is pretty big.

    After all that teasing it's hardly changed. Actually it is and looks good:

    A bit of everything it seems with smartphones coming soon.

    Formula One - 2019 Season

    McLaren announce partnership with British American Tobacco, so McLaren have got their own Mission Winnow it seems. I wonder how close to tobacco level money this is, could be a big boost for them.

    Formula One - 2018 Season

    Probably best to think of the car manufacturer being Fiat who want to boost the Alfa brand. Sauber was effectively a Ferrari/Fiat B-team anyway, so re-branding the team as Alfa was the next logical step. They've talked about a technical collaboration between Alfa and Sauber, so I think it is more than just Ferrari parts and a badge. Doesn't hurt that it's a brand with a long racing history and plenty will be happy to see it back, of a sort at least. It is a shame to see the Sauber name leave the grid, a name I've grown up with and always had a fondness for, who couldn't like the people behind the C9. Important thing is the factory is still going and hopefully this strengthens their future.

    Didn't need to read it to know this would be the final line.

    Steam Secret Santa 2018

    It's that time of year again; 2011, 2012, 2013 , 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017. Don't forget things changed last year when they removed the option to add games as gifts to your inventory, meaning you can only send gifts directly. So the only way to keep it secret is for people to send me a list of the games to buy and the money. It all seemed to go smoothly last year. The easiest way is to use the Digital Gift Cards, this sends me Steam wallet funds that I can then use to buy the gifts. One limitation is there's no option to send a specific amount, it's multiples of 4 and 10, you also can't use current wallet funds to buy them. We can also use PayPal gift or bank transfer, as these will require some more organisation would be best to get them done before the final minute.  To take part please PM me a link to your Steam profile by the end of December 18th. Make sure your profile/game details are set to public so your secret Santa can view it. On December 19th I'll send a PM saying who you're buying for. PM me the games you want to gift and if using digital gift cards send it to JPR (main not Santa) before the end of December 23rd. If you want to send money another way let me know in the PM and we will sort it out, please try and let me know as early as possible. I'll then send the games out late on the 24th. My account is a UK one using the UK store, the digital gift cards are converted if sent in a different currency but not sure if you can see the conversion rate. The Winter sale should start December 20th this year so a tight turnaround as usual. Games should be at their best price at the start of the sale, useful for buying gifts, it also means you won't miss out on anything if you choose to wait until the 25th to buy games. A wishlist is really useful, no limits on what you can buy, I'll include a Steam profile link so you can see what they own. Whilst there's no restrictions the spirit is more thoughtful, you can send a comedy gift, but it's not really in the spirit if that's all you send.

    Just got the gift, thank you I really appreciate it. It's been great to read people's reaction to their gifts, roll on December so we can start again.

    Formula One - 2018 Season

    Reading this it seems even more the right decision, an autocrat who treated the team how he treated the press, doesn't sound like the way to get the best out of the Ferrari team. Looks like this was Marchionne's plan anyway, the board had been informed and would have happened in the Summer but his death delayed that. It does sound like there has been infighting recently between Arrivabene and Binotto and a choice had to be made. If they kept Arrivabene then it's likely Binotto would go, a man whose been at the team since 95 and in charge of the technical developments over the last couple of seasons which have been pretty handy. Bring on the racing, just got a bit more excited about the season ahead.

    Formula One - 2018 Season

    Happy with that, hopefully this will mean an improvement in management next season. Also hope Binotto will end Arrivabene's ridiculous approach towards the media as well.
  13. $59.99 Looks like £44.99 here, so as contingencies go I don't think this one will be getting a silent assassin rating.
  14. When Yoko Taro thought Persona was too sensible, so sent Joker and the gang 5,000 years into the future for the Nier: Automata cross-over. I now want this.

    Santa's sack is full now and ready to empty at 11pm tonight, hopefully everyone will enjoy unwrapping their presents, merry Christmas all.
  17. This has now been taken over by Cyanide.

    Steam Secret Santa 2018

    I'll send PMs to those whose game list is private just to let them know. I imagine many missed the changes Steam made which set it to friends only by default.

    Don't forget a few days left to sign up for Steam Secret Santa, check out the sticky and drop me a PM. Bring a little fun, excitement and Christmas spirit to the Steam sales.
