@alex: Wind Waker HD will be digitally available for all Wii U owners on September 20th also. So you can buy it beforehand even if you don't buy the bundle

I think it is really stupid of Nintendo to announce a price drop almost a month before it happens. It's gonna kill most of the small amount of sales they were going to have...

1. Qualifying pace is different from race pace. In the race your car is full of fuel and you have to use the tyres for longer periods. The Mercedes that Hamilton drives has been known to wear out the tyres much faster than the others.
2. Qualifying has 3 sessions. First decides positions 22-17 (if I remember correctly), while the other 17 continue to Q2, after which the 10 fastest drivers go on to Q3, where if you don't set a time at all, you will start 10th anyway.
3. The amount of money spent on a car makes a huge difference. The rules have become stricter in the past 10 years, but the car is still very important, maybe almost more important than the driver. But that depends a little. Short answer: there is a pretty good amount of different things the teams can do.
4. You can do one defensive manouver per turn, so one switch of "lane" during the approach to a corner.
5. I think it's sensors on the car - the DRS won't work if you weren't close enough. There was a case of this in the Hungarian GP, where Alonso's system didn't work properly and he could open it anyway. Also it is restricted to special parts of the track (which you might have known).
6. Each race weekend has two different tyre sets. Each driver must use both (in dry weather) during the race for at least one lap. The softer set is quicker but wears out faster and vice versa for the harder compound. There are 5 different tyre compounds and Pirelli chooses which two sets it brings in every weekend.
7. No clue :)
8. If you pass someone, then you must give the spot back or you will be penalized. If you cut, then you will be penalized, but if you just avoided a crash by cutting, then you are fine.
9. It's secret Red Bull code, like play calling in the NFL. Probably meant something like turn down the revs or hold position or fuel low.
10. You saw incorrectly. I think it is 25 for 1st, 18 for 2nd, 15 for 3rd, 10 for 4th and something up to the 10th position that gives you 1 point.

@rolanthas: The 'Solid' in 'Metal Gear Solid' does not refer to Solid Snake, it refers to the change from 2D to 3D, where everything is 'solid' as opposed to 2D. I know that doesn't help your feelings about the lead characters, just trying to be informative :)

@somnambulist: No clue if he is doing anything music related at the moment. I know some of the guys, but I haven't seen Antti in quite some time.

Have to buff my friend's band, their album will be out next month. The earlier ones are really awesome, this one is with a new singer, but I expect it to kick ass anyway! If you are into the melodic shit, check it out!

The "Coming up on Giant Bomb" ticker now displays This Weeks Podcast incoming in 37 minutes (2am here, I guess 4pm on the west coast?)

This is totally stupid. ME3 with kinect looked kinda okay, as in it will be useful, but nothing that I would ever want. Imagine the amount of possible trolling during the conversations. Also, don't want to talk to my TV. GR:FS's customization looked intuitive and possibly useful, but again, nothing that you couldn't do with a normal microphone or just a controller. I won't even get into Fable....

And Disneyland? REALLY?!
