For Steam and whatnot, not too bad actually. Probably like $65 in total, $40 of which was Far Cry 3 so not nearly as bad as other years when I went whole hog and spent like $400. But I also am kinda running out of stuff to buy. I just bought the DoW2 pack, GalCiv pack, and Endless Space. All of which are long games that I don't have time to play but I bought them anyway. I really want to dig into Endless Space, as I haven't played a huge scale turn-based strategy game in a very long time.
I did buy some 3DS stuff at a local Boxing Day sale where it was buy 1 get 1 half off so I ended up spending about $50 on NSMB2 and Mario Kart 7. I am quite enjoying the 3DS so far.
Also, it is good that they are going hard on supporting Linux (they will have to if this box is to be Linux based). Maybe I can finally get rid of the steaming pile of poo that is Windows once and for all. If it weren't for games I would already be fully moved to Linux and Mac OS.
"Real Game". Everytime I see people post this term (often in relation to discussions of mobile/indie gaming and usually claiming that mobile platforms don't have said "real games") I ask them what it means. I have never received a response.
$73 for unlimited texting (which I never used to use but now use probably 100 times a day or more), unlimited data, unlimited local calls, unlimited national calls to other people on the same network, unlimited picture messaging, caller ID (A big one for me) and $8 insurance for my iPhone 5 I got a month ago. That is around the average plan you can get here if you have a smart phone.
I used to have a cheaper plan but now that I work during the school year I can afford a better one. I also use my iPhone significantly more than I used my old Nexus phone.
I just bought Guitar Hero through Guitar Hero 3 for PS2 recently. I still use mine a bit. I was late to the party when it comes to the PS2 so I still am slowly catching up on games for it. I still want to get the Sly Cooper games.
