I'm not sure about the numbers, but Nintendo bombed quality control. YouTube Switch Issues, there are a ton of problems with the OS and low quality design.

Can't say I've heard much about issues besides a dead pixel, my switch has been working without an issue so I can't complain xD

Been really enjoying Nier Automata. The whole time I felt nostalgic playing it, couldn't quite put my finger on it, but now I get it. It reminds me of .hack so much! From the music, to the environments, to the weapon design, to the character movement animation, to the hacking! I took a few screenshots while playing, and wow, show these to a .hack fan and they will believe a new game is coming!


(you can totally bs and say that these are the new designs of the forest of pain, mac anu, those GU spiral tower dungeons, and a new Delta Hidden Forbidden Holy Ground) :lol:

RF: When I was younger I got an e-mail from CyberConnect2 encouraging me to try and join after my studies.

So where I live, in Toronto, it finally warmed up. After those few snowstorms in early April, spring finally came.
My lectures are also now over, and I only have a few exams next week.

This summer is very important to me, I'll be taking my last class at my university (graduating in August!) - I will also have to use this summer to job search and search for post grad - whichever option I will land quicker is the one I'll take lol...

But I also have been thinking back to my childhood a lot lately, a sort of reflection of the last 10-15 years of my life. Trying to remember and compare the type of person I was in the 2000s, and where I was, and the people who were around me at the time. It's a strange feeling I've been experiencing. I feel happy I'm transitioning from being a student to basically an adult, but at the same time, I keep thinking to my teenage days and really missing them. I'm excited, but a little worried too haha.

Thanks <3
I also hope that my interests stay the same, I've seen far too many friends on various forums leave shortly after finishing uni and entering the real world. Having fun and having hobbies is important too.

I remember giving you advice on game stores in Toronto a few years ago, but hey, maybe we've sat together on the TTC without even knowing it. It's heart-warming to know there is another dot hacker in the city. :D

I also am halfway through my undergraduate! Most of my time this summer will be spent playing video games and also working. I work at a game store, too, so there's no escaping it. I'm also going to Tokyo again in a couple weeks! Expect some pictures of whatever .hack goods I acquire.

I'm still a student and even though my turn to graduate will be coming soon enough I feel like nothing will be all too different. I have mostly been the same person my whole life. I mean, here I am, posting in a .hack forum that I used to lurk when I was a kid. I mostly just hone my tastes and that's it. I don't think I'm too different at 19 then I was at 9, I mean, other than the whole "maturity" thing.

Yes, I remember! I only managed to track down Infection, then gave up lol. Still hoping for an HD collection.. one day.

Yeah, it's weird. "Maturity" is such a vague concept - I wouldn't say I'm that different from when I was 12. Still have mostly the same group of friends and interests. Sure, people come and go, and interests expand - but otherwise it's still me. There is also slight pressure when you look at people surrounding you. Girls becoming moms, guys getting their careers together - that sort of thing. I wholeheartedly believe that it is pointless to compete with others, you are you, our life paths are unique and it's just silly trying to compare yourself to others. Saying that, though, there is a good quote that I also like; it states "to be aware but not compare." In that sense, while your life is individual, do keep in mind what is going on around you, it helps you stay on track.

From my experience, I would define "growing up" as the process of going through **** that life throws at you and dealing with scummy people. It's a sad truth, but far too many things in our lives are beyond our control. In just the last years I spent at uni, so much **** happened that helped me acquire a new perspective of the world. It's true that you stay/feel the same as ten years ago, but now you have experience about the imperfect world and people around us (which we didn't know as kids or teens). Gotta stay focused and be smart, a lot of people are out there to get you, so make sure you don't end up being had.
I suppose it's the events and people, good or bad, that accumulate over the years ultimately expand your horizons and viewpoints. While interests and hobbies stay in the same realm, all the other crap eats away at your time. It's hard to be successful in life, gotta work very hard for it - and in the process your naive-self gets groomed into a moody adult, lol. So we need to keep that in mind and stay positive in retaliation to the curve-balls that are thrown your way as you go on.

RF1: What a coincidence... I'm in Toronto as well. Although I'm more on the western side.

RF2: I feel really old.

Share how your trip was (once you're back)!
Me and my friend are considering going this fall, but we're not sure if it'll be too difficult without a person who already visited beforehand.

I went by myself for the first time last year. Granted I had a cursory knowledge of Japanese (much better now!) but also all the signs and so on had English. I will be posting my .hack finds when I'm home! I'm in the Chicago airport right now. My flight got delayed!

RF1: Avy/sig update.

RF2: I just suffered some nerve damage in my back... due to this, my right leg is KILLING me. >__< It's gonna take a month to heal, apparently...

RF3: Anything fun for the summer? Well I am hoping to attend Bot Brawl in Toronto on July 8th/9th. Thing is, I usually work weekends so I dunno if I can make it.

Should we make a Discord group for dothackers? I feel like communities are more popular now than forums?

We have one already, don't we? Not that I'm using it at the moment, I've taken a break from the Discord server at the moment for personal reasons.
