I’d be interested in a cost breakdown too.

Yea, Mr. Money Bags. Spent a whole paycheck on those ACA games :stuck_out_tongue:

Well, on the podcast he said he “had access to” several games so I was wondering how much the whole experiment cost.

I think he leaned on me for access lot of those, so … it didn’t cost him much. :wink:
