    The soil knows all.
    The PC Sakura Taisen currently up on Sega Retro I believe is the 1994 release. It has one of those green Sega ratings, and those were phased out before 2000.

    The one in Muteki's post says "DVD-ROM". But it also says Windows Vista and has newer CERO ratings. So I'm guessing it's an even later re-release than the 2000 one.

    Huh, so there was a 1994 PC game and it isn't on Sakura Taisen's website... and DI guess that means the series started on PC :| but who knows

    Also on the website: two Game Boy Color games, lol

    Not a request, but while adding the TGS stuff to the 3DS page on Sega Retro I noticed two peculiar things:

    http://tgs.sega.jp/2011/data/plineup/sims_pets
    http://tgs.sega.jp/2011/data/plineup/nfs_the_run

    The Sims 3 Pets and Need for Speed: The Run, which are EA titles with Sega as partners.

    Does this mean EA has come back to Sega? =P

    Did F-Zero AX come out before, at the same time as, or after F-Zero GX? (at least in Japan, where I have a release date of 25 July 2003 for GX, which is before the 25 August 2003 release for the US; neither Sega of Japan nor Nintendo of Japan mention the release month (hell, Nintendo of Japan doesn't even list AX on their site; only GX!))

    AX definitely came out after GX in America. There's a flyer in my GX box for AX that says "Coming this September!" (I believe it was September, I'll check when I get home)
    EDIT: Confirmed. Also, it's in the back of the manual. It says "Launching September 2003! Visit f-zero.jp for details." No exact date, though.

    On Saturn:

    JP - Chaos Control - no Virtua Gun
    EU - Chaos Control - Virtua Gun
    JP - Chaos Control Remix - Virtua Gun

    Does this indicate that the EU Chaos Control is actually Chaos Control Remix, or that there are three different versions of the game?

    OK different question: I have a JP Saturn game with a spinecard, but the store I got it from put the price tag sticker on the spinecard. How do I remove it without damaging the card?

    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.

    Eh, I guess I can try that if there's no other option... are there other options?

    Welp, this.
    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.

    Welp, this.
    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...
