    Blizzard is also having some fun... This weekend, we’re upgrading all inactive World of Warcraft accounts to grant returning players full access to the game and all their characters—without a subscription—through June 24.

    I you want to feel bad go here first https://help.steampowered.com/en/accountdata/AccountSpend Steam just introduced this... it will let you know how much money you have spent on steam.


    The "OldSpend" field equals to the amount of money that was spent before the Limited User Account policy was implemented in 2015. The "PWSpend" is related to purchases made on games operated by Perfect World Entertainment. a Chinese company that runs CS:GO and DOTA 2 in China.

    TotalSpend $229.10
    OldSpend $89.11
    PWSpend $0.00

    Turns out today is my 10 year Steam anniversary. I'm pretty shocked I've averaged less than $2/month of real money spent over that time. And I'm sitting on a bit over $60 in Steam credit currently (thanks PUBG crates).

    It looks interesting, but $8 shipping sucks. I'm interested in people's opinion of the Steam Controller as well. If I were to get the link, I'd probably get the controller too.

    Steam link + Controller for $34 + $12 shipping

    I'm with Thor. About $160/year. That doesn't include games I bought for the kid. I put that down as a child-rearing expense anyway.

    Are you tracking your childgrowth expenses? Slap him with a payment when he turns 18? Hold that number over his head for the rest of his life?

    Just take the number you see and divide it by the number of hours you spend on steam.... then you see it really is cheap entertainment.

    I have both, quality is fine on both pieces.

    I haven’t tried other games since I had an issue on the stick of truth where I couldn’t figure out how to do the fart attack with the controller.

    Buying a couple more now that I see inside the box is a flat Ethernet cable and a 6 ft. HDMI cable. Worth it just for that.

    It'll work with a Xbox 360, Xbox One, or PS3/4 controller, too.
