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 !

Post your prices inside <> symbols and Grim...'s magic tracker will total everything up for you : http://www.beexcellenttoeachother.com/counter/cash.php (*)

You can also put negative values in if you've sold items back

(*) This looks like its working straight away this year so maybe last years coding update was good ;-)

I was out by almost a factor of 100% last year, so I've adjusted my expectations accordingly this year.

St Austell to Penzance route, a steam train to use on it, and a freight locomotive.

I can walk past the cafe I used to work in at Truro Station.

This is a thing, though

<49.99> Metal Gear Solid: Master Collection Vol. 1 (Steam)

Bought this for a second time, after refunding it last year when it became clear that it didn't work at all on the Steam Deck. They've just fixed it... took them long enough.

I dont know if you only buy from Steam themselves or have steam credit , but plenty of other stores have at least some type of discount on this

even avoiding the grey market sellers , Fanatical / Game2 / Green man gaming all have deals on

Link below in case anyone else wants to pick it up now its 'fixed'

Also... The totals link isn't working. Was that broken when the forum broke the other day?

So far this year.

I'm expecting a fairly cheap year, I don't anticipate any significant hardware purchases and my PS Plus sub seems to cover console gaming pretty well, plus there are loads of games I want to replay.

<31.48> Warcraft Rumble stuff (Play Store) <<<< I've stopped spending money on this now
<10.00> TLOU 2 Remastered for PS5
<17.59> Easy Come, Easy Golf for Switch (from the Everybody's Golf people!)
