  2. Now this is a good point. But I guess Tecmo is all about, and this is for John (or as Asimov’s calls him, Jon), titillation, only hinting at things. Wheras the fan mods leave nothing to the imagination. Which is really odd considering we’re talking about virtual people which really only ‘exist’ in the imagination anyway.
