Kuukai wrote:-You play a beta tester you can change basically everything about, so I'll just call this person "the champion." The champion swiftly rises through the ranks and creates quite a stir on the boards, especially among newbies. The boards are also populated by all the junkie players you'd expect to be beta testing this thing, from Silver Knight to Piros 4 Ever to Kuhn. Most of them are concurrently playing FORCE:ERA. Sakuya even makes a real appearance on the boards, prompting requests for autographs and screenshots from fans of Versus with her inexplicable celebrity status. No one really knows why she's in the game, although Tobias and Mary attempt to explain Bloody Christmas (the events of 2022) to the board.
Kuukai wrote:-After being defeated twice, Tokio reveals that any normal human would have been real-digitalized by now during these battles. Many beta testers for the game have been real-digitalized and haven't been heard from. However, the champion possesses a special disposition (pretty much the opposite of a doubleware) making them immune to real-digitalization. This is what Tokio has been looking for. Tokio isn't sure what CC is planning by bringing back this technology, but he tracked down an area on the server that's the origin of the real-digitalization signal, a very dangerous Battle Point that would bring any normal player into the game before they could defeat it. Tokio wants the champion to do what no one else can and defeat this area, allowing him to shut down the system and his friends to trigger a reset program that frees the trapped players.
Bloody Christmas is referred to as the castle battle where Hermit attacked.roru_aurarios wrote:So thats why Sakuya and Hermit was chosen on the character roster for Versus [The World]. Guess that makes sense. Perhaps that Bloody Christmas event was after the One Sin event? I wonder.
I hope they give something more about Tokio, I want closure too. I assume one of his "friends" is Saika, though.roru_aurarios wrote:So there is Real-digitalization and Anti-real-digitalization. It sounds like both Yin and Yang. I am curious, again. I wonder what happen to Tokio and Saika after they finished high school together? I wonder what secrecy group they have been hidden after all those years? There is so many questions, yet unanswered. Anyway, I hope you finish the rest of the story, Kuukai-san.
It's not open, it's a beta test. Like Akashic Line, in many ways. It might even be something gone horribly out of control, but being CC Corp they're still going to go after you if you try to interfere with the useless admins. It's most likely to further MaMa's agenda though.VirusCoreS wrote:how come CC openly implement this kind of technology?
isn't that kinda illegal?
I hope so too, that's a trophy! But getting to Champion was easier point-wise than I expected. A friend came by, hopefully Ovan isn't that hard and I can finish tonight. Nothing else has been very hard...VirusCoreS wrote:oh, and I hope you got S rank for every battle, Kuukai

(Phantom) Thief wrote:It was a .hack art book released by Kikuya. Most of it is for show but there are a few items I think are interesting. In the middle there is a story about Saika after AIKA's sacrifice for .hack//Link and at the back there's an epilogue for the comic between Tokio and Ryu and Kite in real life. Also all though it is completely irrelevant I still laugh at the reverse gender joke for schicksal and the twilight knights: http://img16.imageshack.us/img16/3848/f ... eripon.png
Kuukai wrote:You get the championship. The game and boards seem emptier and emptier. Tokio manages to plant the reset program, but gets caught, and contacts you telling you you're his final hope and you need to defeat the final boss to destabilize the server and trigger the program.
Kuukai wrote:It's really cool the way Tokio uses his powers to narrate at the end. I wonder if the credits are eventually replayable, they're awesome.
