Both are paper, so good question. If it was on plastic or glass, you could just tear it off and wash out the residue.

in most situations like this, time, patience, a steady hand and a razor blade can "coax" the label off.

Get some acetone, put a small amount on a cotton ball, and rub around the price tag.

I'd be wary of most solvents. You'll either strip the colour from the spinecard and/or leave a residue on the plastic.

I tend to just slowly and carefully peel away with my finger nail, and then lightly use isopropyl alchohol to remove any sticky residue. Very sparingly though, you've got to be careful with solvents.

I guess that's the title but I meant the whole page, as it discusses the game's release :/

One was a standalone release, the other was packed-in with the console.
Google mothafucka.

If anything, I find isopropyl leaves a weird saturation of its own, though I'm usually doing this on books instead of video games.

Was the System 18 Where's Wally/Waldo game Wally wo Sagase! released outside Japan? I can't find any evidence for/against this and a lot of sources (such as MAME's source code) use the translated name...

Japanese speaking people, Google is failing me and I need an English translation

ザ・タイピング・オブ・ザ・デッド featuring 楽天 みんなの就職活動日記

"The Typing of the Dead featuring ....."


apparently this is a variant of The Typing of the Dead, in which all the words are replaced with ones about getting a job. Currently breaking up The Typing of the Dead to keep things a bit more managable.

Quick breakdown with the help of jisho.org:

楽天 = optimism
みんな = everybody
の = <possesive particle>
就職活動 = job hunting
日記 = diary/journal

...o_O?

Can someone with a non-TMSS Mega Drive test the Japanese After Burner II? I think I found another one without TMSS... The US/EU one does have TMSS.
