Blog Tom Ato > A list of every game I bought/sold in 2012 with $ and hours.

Posted 28 December 2012

Here it is, year 3. The spreadsheets for 2011 and 2010 are on different tabs.

Note that this doesn't include free games from PS+, demo hours (minutes), or games that I bo...

Blog Tom Ato > I wrote a book!

Posted 19 November 2011

Hey everyone, I just thought I'd pop in and announce that my book Flights of Fantasy I is complete! I'm posting about it here since the book is about my love of video games, and CAG helps me get those video games.

It's available as an ebook for only $.99 or in print for $8. The best part is cheapassgamer will get a cut since it's on amazon (which is pr...
