With a list of characters including Tsukasa (.hack//Sign), Subaru (.hack//Sign), Tabby (.hack//Roots), Midori (.hack//Cell), and even Kite from plain […]

.hack Brings The World To PSP

By Spencer . January 13, 2009 . 10:06pm

After two sagas of PlayStation 2 games Namco Bandai is taking the .hack series to the PSP with .hack//Link. By the title and character art alone this looks like it’s based on the manga of the same name. One thing for sure is the characters are the same. However, the Famitsu photo is too blurry […]

Watch – .hack://G.U. Trilogy teaser clips

By Spencer . November 13, 2007 . 8:14am

Instead of giving .hack://G.U. a full blown anime series CyberConnect2 is summing up Haseo’s story on a DVD and for the high resolution buffs a Blu-Ray disc. .hack://G.U. Trilogy isn’t an anime, the direct to disc film uses CyberConnect2’s models. In the two trailers the animation looks spectacular, but I’m not too keen on paying […]

Introducing .hack://Link

By Spencer . October 26, 2007 . 11:58am

  CyberConnect2 (or is it Namco Bandai?) is expanding the world of .hack with a new manga series called .hack://Link. The story takes place in a new version of the World, the World R: X and after the events of .hack://G.U. I'm starting to get overwhelmed with the .hack canon so I'm going to pass […]

.hack://G.U. remade in high def

By Spencer . September 14, 2007 . 9:22am

Days after the conclusion of .hack://G.U. arrives in North America, CyberConnect2 announces .hack://G.U. Trilogy. Surprisingly, this isn’t a bundle pack of the three .hack://G.U. games for the Playstation 2. .hack://G.U. Trilogy is coming on a Blu-ray disc, which means you can enjoy Haseo’s three games (again?) in high definition. Fans of the .hack series are […]

Entering the .hack://G.U. world for the third time

By Spencer . September 4, 2007 . 1:40am

Honesty time here, I played, but didn’t complete .hack://G.U. vol. 2. I had to start .hack://G.U, vol. 3 Redemption using a stock version of Haseo and company, something most of you probably won’t do. This will probably make my hands on experience with the build notably different from yours. On the plus side the first […]

Getting lost in .hack//G.U. Vol. 2 Reminisce

By Rolando . May 24, 2007 . 11:53am

What more could be said of Reminisce? It continues the story from Rebirth by answering some questions alongside giving more unanswered questions and consists of a deeper story than that in Rebirth. I suppose its due to Reminisce being the middle part of the G.U. trilogy, but Reminisce manages to pick up where Rebirth left […]

.hack://G.U. Vol. 1: Rebirth

By Louise . November 1, 2006 . 9:35am

There’s a type of game for everyone. If your idea of a game is one that has hours on hours of cut scenes, hand-holding, repetitive dungeons, button mashing, and a plot that seems to go nowhere, then volume one of this .hack series is just what you’re waiting for. For everyone else, watch the anime […]

.hack://G.U. vol. 1 your guide to the new world

By Spencer . October 11, 2006 . 6:13pm

  Even if you got Kite and BlackRose to the maximum level in the first .hack series, you’re going to have to start from square one in .hack://G.U.. The new trilogy has a new “world” and more immersive content to draw people into the illusion of playing a MMORPG. A new fighting system, guilds, and […]
