Robert’s Pick: The 2006 release of .hack//G.U. Vol. 1//Rebirth might have perplexed its stateside audience, with its offbeat, internet-inspired moniker, and single-player gameplay that simulated a Massively Multiplayer Online RPG. But in the ensuing years, these concepts become more common, stimulating demand for the inaugural game and its two follow-up. With the original PS2 games long out of print and selling for a hefty sum, the release of .Hack//G.U. Last Recode is exceedingly welcome. For a reasonable price, you get the trilogy, along with a fleeting fourth entry, along with the expected update to the visuals. If you’re new to the material, I’d suggest playing alongside reading the manga or watching the anime for maximum enjoyment.

  1. You have to love a site that has a picture of a Fox girl the week CoD comes out.

    Blessed image!

  2. No price for ACA NeoGeo: The King of Fighters ’97…

  3. Waiting to see how Sonic Force fares. Expectatations set low.

  4. I guess liking Call of Duty: WWII is a bad thing now. I like being bad then.

  5. Isanydeal is saying .Hack//G.U. Last Recode is $50 everywhere. Guess I’ll wait for now.

  6. I was always the kid who asked for Stardew Valley for Christmas and got Farming Simulator instead. I feel bad for the Switch owners who will get that.
