Holy veal, this is the first time I heard anybody talk about Vette! ever. Wasn't my favourite open world driving game of the era (that title belongs to Test Drive 3) but it was something special.

Brad has literally asked that same cocktail machine question and got the exact same answer before. I forget which exact podcast but I'm sure it was when Vinny went down to California Extreme to buy arcade machines.

@andrew2696: Brad harbors deep guilt from his younger days for eating on that Ms. Pac Man machine. We’re here for you Brad - it’s ok you did nothing wrong!

I think one could make an argument that the game saves for the PS2 are art. They make those blue blocky towers and all. Art!

I just went through the whole save backup process with my GameCube through the Wii. It was super cool to have my old saves on my PC but it was super crazy to me at first

@alex I have an e-kit I'd like to be able to record with someday, curious what you plan to use for that?

@humanity: I can absolutely imagine Brad being the type of kid to be anxious about doing that. No one said he could but no one stopped him.

And then it traumatized him.
