Re: Miscellaneous game questions...

You have to understand that in the Americanization process, the original references to Japanese youth subcultures were put aside in favor of other pop culture references recognizable by the American public. In this specific case, Misuzu is a Sukeban, that is, the leader of an all-female teenage gang...

Re: Little bugs in the database 2

1. The entry for Superstar Seymour displays the cassette inlay for Super All Stars.

Re: Did you ever think you were the last Spectrum user?

My 48K, which my Dad bought me in June 1984, sadly was half-fried around 1993. I knew of no other who was using real hardware Spectrums around then, which was not surprising since from 1985 on Italy had become a Commodore colony, and everybody else had C64s, or had ditched the C64 in favour of the A...
