Including third-party apps and services, £852.18. With 847 hours logged in the sim that's just over £1 per hour.

I've spent £157.78 in 2017.

What's the 3rd party stuff? I had assumed it was a closed ecosystem but obviously not.

SODE iRacing Fuel Calculator: automatically calculates my fuel on the fly during a race, but I can also use voice commands to change tyres, windscreen tear-off etc. Very useful in VR.
Voice Attack: same sort of thing but not as good.
Trading Paints: powerful painting app plus galleries where you can download car liveries for anyone to see who also has the software installed. The basic iRacing painting app is rubbish.

Having to use any kind of command to change components is a cop out! Where's your pit crew? What kind of alleged simulation even is this!?

I'm just sending instructions to my pit crew using the radio like any other driver would. :p

<47.99> FIFA 18 (Switch). Probably cheaper elsewhere, but I was in local indie shop and decided to get it from there while I was out and about.

Really pleased with the game so far too. Haven't really played a FIFA game properly since FIFA 10. 12 didn't grab me, so I lost interest in them for a while, but this is good. Once you get past the initial couple of EULA screens, logging in with Nintendo and then EA Accounts, you can finally get stuck in. Short loading times just a nice straightforward game of footy.

<6.99> Age of Barbarian - Extended Cut.

Looks rather similar to the two old 8-bit Barbarian games, which I played a fair bit. Looks like my next purchase will have to be another SSD though as I don't even have the 5.5gb left to actually install it.

It was down to two beforehand (Outlast and Life is Strange) so I'm actually happy to see it perk up a bit again. I'm also in the middle of SOMA but I don't think that's too long and there's no challenge to speak of.

Yeah, the reviews were pretty iffy and I swithered over it but apparently it's not all that long and it still looks utterly incredible so I'm happy to play through it for the sake of finishing up the trilogy.

<89.99> 250GB Samsung SSD. Not strictly a gaming purchase, but the main reason I'm buying it is to install some of the Steam games I've been buying lately.

How's that Aim controller? It looks comically massive in the pictures I've seen

Not sure if I'll keep them all as yet or re-sell, but I'll at least give them a go first.

Prey (2017) for PC, retail key from G2A.com

£29.99 from Steam or £14.57 from G2A, and it wasn't any more faff than buying through Steam really.

Took about 45 seconds for the key to come through, activated on Steam, job done, game installing.

Retron 5 3-in-1 Adapter, so I can test Game Gear and Master System games using my Retron 5. Not cheap, but the RRP is £60+, so about as cheap as I could find.
