ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Today has been an absolute great day as I found one of my original memory cards for one of my top five favorite games of all time which is Gran Turismo 1 for the original PlayStation. In this episode I break down what I want to do with it as well as videos that I would like to post mesh. So come and take a listen to what I have to offer and what my future plans are going to be.

Hey, everybody, what is going on tangents here and, you know, I thought I'd give you a little bit of a very unique episode. Lately I've been getting into Retro Grade Gaming. I brought in my Xbox, I grabbed my playstation and I hooked him up. I found a copy of Grand Turismo. Couldn't find the memory card for my games and I think that they have been with the games that were stolen years ago from a party my ex had. And when it comes to the xbox, I still have NHL K five. I bought another version. Everything on that behalf has been absolutely going five fine. Anyway. The reason why I'm bringing this particular subject ump is...

I looked everywhere and I found a bunch of memory cards over my mom's house. I tried them. No, no gt one at all. So I put that off. I've been obsessed with a NHL K five. I've been playing that basically every single day. I am basically in average record holder for my franchise. See, he's game, nothing that really spectacular. Yeah, was looking. I know that was a little bit of a stretch, but I was trying to think of what I was going to say. I was looking for my hockey cards because I wanted something to do with my kids. You know, I have four boys, one girl. With the boys rely hockey and I thought, excuse me, and I thought, why don't I...

...find my hot yards and we can have a hockey card set put together with all my old ones, grab new ones, things like that for us, just for the family. So I go into my shed, open it up and I'm looking around, looking around like where's my freaking hockey cards? And out of the corner of my eye it took a look at a plastic shelving unit and I'm looking going that what I think it is. And what do you know? It was a play station of one memory card. Who, I wonder, what's on this? So I grab it, run inside, tell Tj and skylar hi, love you. Grab my playstation, grab the controller, grab the power cord, blocked right into the boys bedroom. Unplug the xbox bucks plugged in the playstation, pop the latch, hit the power...

...button, got to the memory card, put it in. First thing that loaded play station one's grant grant Torismon. I'm looking at I'm in shocked. It's like no, that cannot be the my file. No, so I go run crab the disc, put it in. I'm just sitting there, boots up to peace, peace, pep load, load, perfect, it's all right. mainscreen. Scroll down, hit simulation mode. Looked at how many days there were and the day count that my savee geame had was one thousand, three hundred and eighty one days. I got massively stoked, like...

...beyond stone. Look at my cash. Couple hundred thousand. I'm by this time I'm like one to freak out. Psychokay, I gotta calm down. You gotta calm down. I went into my graduate scroll down. First car that I was looking for what's the Chrysler Copper head or the dodge concept card? Just in case you don't know it, it's like a mini Viper. I just it kind of blew my mind. Is Psych okay. I got into the car, went to the autumn ring mini. For Some Otter reason, that's like one of my most favorite preasures. Don't know why. Took a look at the record and the record was like twenty eight seconds for one lapt it's like no, did I find it? Raced it absolutely kick got car was too powerful. Can Handle like God, like thirty five seconds for...

...the first and second happens and kind of damn it went to my license. This is a spot where I knew if this was my original content, that would be my be my a and my international a license complete. Is Right before I quit playing the playstation. I finally had my international a license. That was one of the hardest ones and they know for a fact that I did beat it. It's like, all right, let's get you up, let's go. Looked at it, beat it this. This basically is my original file from there, early of early two thousands. It like, Oh my God, the in the Stellgia effect that is having on my mind is insane. I can still picture seeing myself in my room, when my friends...

...are bugging me to the goal, to the Bar, to go out party, there's me at home playing this. Or how about playing this game on New Year's Eve, on one thousand nine hundred and ninety nine, as it turns into the two thousand Millennium or decade, whatever you call like. It had that much of nostalgia effect on me that it just blew my mind. I felt absolutely in love with it. There was really not more I can say. The one part that I am going to do, which I will post it on Mesh Dot ce a, just in case you're new, and that's also another reason why I want to do this. Mesh dot he a is like youtube, but different. There's no ads in the videos. The...

...only thing that you got to do is pay your monthly membership and the people will get paid from your membership. So it's a new chapter in tangents existence. Baby, I don't know. The one thing that I really do hate is paying for ads. If you're willing to go pay for ads on you to the this is absolutely nothing. And Mesh. I've had more interaction with my followers on Mesh Dot Sea that I have on Youtube. I've had more views on Mesh I have on Youtube. I'm almost thinking about getting rid of my audio podcast and focusing more on Mesh because the people on it, they have been absolutely awesome. I love them to death. They make me actually...

...feel good about my content, other than Youtube, which, yeah, I got basically nothing. It's like a little limp, meaner, caring little, a little little, little, little, little little. So what I want to do is on Mesh Dot Sea, on my account intentions with toby, I would like to go record a bunch of my races and have them be posted online from people to go and check out. One of the reasons why is I've been obsessed for probably like the last ten, fifteen years now, last ten years, the last two years to us, on how well I've tuned my copper head and compared to the other places across the world. There was one video that I seen on Youtube wear my time. It was just...

...a little bit slower than these other guys, and I've even found a website. I don't know if it was for granturs well one or if it was F granturs O two. That the time of my time that I have, which is like twenty eight point five seconds, is almost three seconds slower than the fastest time. So what I would like to do is get a bunch of these videos and post them and try challenging people to beat it. It has almost became my mission to post these times like that's how much faith I...

...have in this particular car. There's there's three vehicles. Now we're absolutely ridiculous with all the two there was my car, my copper head, which I'd use, my GTR thirty three, my skyline cheap, well, our thirty three. That was my buddy Ernie. He was up sessed with that in his quarter miles. Just absolutely insane. And finally, the TYOTA SUPRA, which hoyman would actually use when he drove as well. Those are the ones that really stood out and I would like to go and try making a bunch of these things online website, Mesh media for this. I'd even go on...

Youtube to try getting more views, more impacts on my records and see if anybody else can beat them. Hey, if I can get at least three seconds off of the quote World Record, why won't I do it? Like this is almost something that it's telling me that I should maybe it was destiny trying to tell me that I need to do it. It's just, Oh my God, you guys, this is insane. I know I'm starting to get back into Retro Great Gaming. This is like the number one step anything that I do get. I really do want to like focus on my playstation one, two player for player adapters, as well as all the controllers which I would have had, except they were over at one of whoyman's friends house.

He had a party and all my controllers, all my four player adapters, were stolen. It pissed me off and guess what? It was over at his house, not whinns. The saw the guy's house and he just said, oh well, it's like, dude, usually when somebody leaves something at Your House you would be polite and protect it, but instead they get stolen in. You're like basically giving you in the middle fingers and get out of here. So I haven't talked to that guy. I'm still pissed off at them because the four player adapt or the to four player adapters, that was like eighty bucks back in the day. Then I had eight controllers, let's say forty bucks a piece at the time. Yeah, do the math...

...it. I lost like couple hundred dollars right there and all I god was asked, oh well, screw it, you don't need it. Like so I want to replace all that. I found a memory card where it uses a nesty card, which I would absolutely use it get all the games that I had that was stolen from my house, were I x had a party and lost all of it, while so much more of them just my sanity, my wealth and a bunch of other things. Anyway, then work on my xbox, my original like, for example, Midnight Club, the hockey xsn studios all their games, like rivals, links top golf, your links golf tops Bein so I do have a vision of what I want to do...

...and it's you know, it is what it is. I'm going to start. If I can collect everything that I want, that's great. If not, it's part of life. Anyway. Thanks for tuning in.
