Another year and another attempt to guess how much money your going to spend on gaming !

Any hardware your looking at picking up ?

Are there big games you are going to grab on day 1 - or will you wait for the magic £20 mark ?

Post your estimate here and try and keep track of just how much money you are throwing away when instead you could be outside !

After a mere twelve years, I've finally spent five minutes making the tracker pay attention to the thread you arrived from, meaning I'll never have to update it again. I've edited the FOREVER LINK into Zaphod's post.

<34.99> NFS Unbound 'Palace Edition' for PC from Origin. I've been waiting for it to turn up in a sale. It's by Criterion and as we all know, they make the best racing games.

I already have it on disc, but the Series S doesn't have a slot! It's been at near £20 for ages, but I saw it was on offer and jumped on it

Mr Fast - Steam <0.39> - described as a twin stick shooter, but it's more Cannon Fodder (mouse to aim, separate fire button), than Smash TV/Robotron. Bit fiddly on the Steam Deck, left stick to move, right to move the mouse cursor (or touch screen if you can manage that), and right trigger to shoot, I might have to see if there are any better layouts (there aren't, but right trackpad works and is much better than the stick). I've had more than 40p's worth of entertainment out of it, but I think it's only on sale for another 10 hours or so.

Blossom Tales: The Sleeping King - Steam <2.74> - Rather than actually try and finish Link to the Past for once, why don't I just buy this somehow-evaded-Nintendo's-lawyers-up-to-now "tribute."
It looks very much like LttP, and I'm hoping for good things when I get round to playing it.

@MailiA you do know you can get Playstation Pounds a little bit cheaper than face value , I always used to use CDKeys in the past but more recently Shopto has had better offers

https://www.shopto.net/en/search/?input_search=psn

So for example that £50 you just got could have been £42.85 : https://www.shopto.net/en/dls55596-play ... 00-p52491/

Pay Shopto you get a pretty much instant code , stick the code in and your account has the £50 credit and your ~7 quid better off ?
