Re: .hack franchise plot threads that are still unresolved?

Whoa, Kuukai that sounds like a major plot point to the Entire series that we were not given at all! I suppose it was a fond hope that //Epitaph of Twilight would eventually be released in English but alas. The idea that Lara ended the cycle of Rebirth in order to show the system that it needed to a...

Re: .hack//G.U. Last Recode

Hmm... a combination of Morganna and Vegalta maybe? It may possibly be related to the Gaelic word Moralta, meaning Moral, the dot hack series has taken some influence from there before. Interesting all the same.

Re: Character popularity poll 2017!

If //Link is to be re-released it needs to be reworked from top to bottom. Story and Music are great but the gameplay is... lacking. At least Albireo was still in the top ten of Males. granted rated last of the main Male characters (except for Tokio) grumble, grumble... Funny enough, if you consider...

Re: Dreams, Morgana and Mental Manipulation in The World

@Keyaki, I stand corrected. I'm not sure I'd call Morganna "evil", but she was most concerned with self-preservation which lead her to do some malevolent actions. @k-su & Falions I think you're both exactly right. Especially when taken piece by piece. I would say that reading a synopsi...

I have to say, that child Aura playing the piano and adult Aura playing the piano is an adorable juxtaposition.

Re: Dreams, Morgana and Mental Manipulation in The World

Not really. Morganna had nothing to do with Elk helping Morganna, he did that entirely on his own. Kite destroyed Macha which, in turn, killed Mia and Elk was upset. With grudge against Kite, he decided to help Morganna to get back at him. Thankfully, Elk realized how wrong and selfish he was. That...

Re: Vegalta, the Shadowed Calamity

Well the translated info. on the thing's art mentioned it as "crawling like a baby" which implies it's some newly birthed.. something, possibly spawned by Corbenik's Rebirth. The name "Vegalta" only comes up with some Japanese baseball team, so no luck there. Hmm... might it be A...

Re: Dreams, Morgana and Mental Manipulation in The World

I think that Morganna's non-character in the first four games is probably one of the only failings of them. There are *hints* that she is more involved than she appears. After defeating Skeith people report hearing a woman shouting before the system error and this reminded me of when she is yelling ...

Re: Dreams, Morgana and Mental Manipulation in The World

I think that Morganna can function as a full omnipresent being, but it likely takes a lot of energy (?memory?) and she wouldn't be able to conduct it for that long. During the later parts of the series she is clearly acting in this role as she cannot see the Net Slum and asks Macha where Tsukasa and...

Re: Dreams, Morgana and Mental Manipulation in The World

Tsukasa does say in one episode to Mimiru that though he falls asleep sometimes it feels different from sleep. So odds are that these visions Morganna plants into Tsukasa's data are made for the purpose of influencing his next actions.

Re: New .hack Novelization

So this is after Corbenik's been defeated? (Speaking of such did she still have her //LINK death speech in this?) Honestly, that makes a lot of sense since this is likely what //ZERO was meant to be leading up to (and what the //ZERO is probably referring to) I would guess that they planned for some...

So... https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DLv8iMjV4AAIUge.jpg:large Skeith is chasing after Lios, who is on an R2 motorbike, with Kite behind him and Helba in the back seat while Balmung rides a Noble Grunty and looks on in trepidation.... Is it safe to say that this novel is no longer canon?

Re: .hack//G.U. Last Recode

Aside from trash like that, shouldn't we be looking into making the game more balanced? If it is released on Steam that means some measure of actual modding can be done that wouldn't require a complicated process to make available. I for one would like to get rid of that silly "If you are level...

I quite am. I'm playing through the original four games to completion again and loving them. I do need to get back to finishing //SIGN again but other things came up. I've reread AI Buster and when I finish the four games read //Legend of Twilight's Bracelet once more. So far this trip has been wond...

Re: .hack//G.U. Last Recode

While it's great that we're getting Ovan, I'm a little concerned that CCCorp would reveal that. That could have been a wonderful surprise (since all we've seen so far hinted that Vol. 4 was all about rescuing Ovan, this shows it goes a bit deeper than that). What I don't understand is why he still h...

Re: .hack franchise plot threads that are still unresolved?

Hmm, where are these from in-game? I didn't even realize MaMa was mentioned in //Link at all and I only recalled the visit to //Fragment was very short. That all sounded rather interesting though. Who is Hakka of the Twilight Knights, by the way? I didn't recognize that name, but they seem to be ver...

Different character traits and I *think* that something with the Lost Weapon changes as well, but it's been so long I don't quite remember if that's true or not.

Harald is awfully concerned about a "Warped Aura" or "Dark Aura". I always found that a little strange that his initial thoughts on what was going wrong with Morganna was that Morganna was turning Aura into something he never had planned for. At the time I thought it was because ...

Re: .hack franchise plot threads that are still unresolved?

I think because Morganna, as a self-aware entity beyond anyone's direct control could possibly lash out against those who would try to manipulate her. especially seeing as she was the God of The World. AIDA however, while self-aware to an extent did not have the same amount of control that Morganna ...
