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 ;-)
Should this be 2024 :)
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'

<25.99> 12 months Nintendo Switch Expansion pass
Also... The totals link isn't working. Was that broken when the forum broke the other day?

It was working before the crash so likely related @grim... can you have a look please ?
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!)
<200> A 1440p monitor for my PC.
