Video Game Spending Thread 2014!!!!!!

Postby Basilikos » Sat Jan 18, 2014 12:57 am

Why? Because something has to shame half of NSC from buying too much.

Rules straight from the old thread, because they're still useful as they (mostly) are.
Darkbuster13 wrote:Rules 'n' stuff:
1. Only post when you have the game/game related thing in your hand. None of this Pre-order bull. "Oh, add five dollars here, and then add 45 dollars in November, k thnx, I might add about 20 more on in June though so take care of that too" I ain't havin' that. When you've paid off the full price of the game and you are in the position of starting the game itself, that is when you tell me to add it to the list.
2. Don't bother with Taxes. We aren't having a contest on who has the most corrupt government.
4. No sabotaging the forum to erase all of your embarrassing scores this time, okay Jacob?


Happy new year's! This starts right now, of course.

NEW RULE
3. COUNT WHERE YOU SPENT REAL CASH.
Ex. If Jacob spends $500 on e-Shop, PSN, and LoL cards, and then proceeds to buy only three $20 games on the e-Shop and spend $10 on LoL points (whatever those are) and $5 here for a PSN game and etc., Jacob should put down $500 and bask in his financial shame instead of putting down a bunch of $10 and $20 items and making me break out a calculator.

tl;dr: No imaginary cash here, just real cash.

I got Civilization V too, but through the Humble Bundle. I got a lot of other stuff too that I haven't touched, but I've spent like 13 hours on Civ V and can't afford any more for a little while... I really like it though! Figuring it out slowly. It came with Brave New World and God & Kings DLC, so I think I have a good amount of what Mike got, but not all of it.

$16.

I'll have to estimate with my 10% discount as I misplaced my one reciept, but...

Nintendo 3DS XL Zelda Edition with A Link Between Worlds - $198
The New Super Mario Bros. - $22.48
Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D - $25.15
Free Copy of Pokemon Y for buying two things I was going to get anyways - Priceless

Oh I guess I forgot the starter pack I bought for the screen protectors. That was $13.50 after discount.

And that makes my total $258.13.
