.hack//GU Part 1 trailer

.hack//GU Part 1 trailer

Bandai Japan released a new trailer for .hack//GU Part 1: RESURRECTION. Even though it looks all PSO-ish and can be misstaken for a MMORPG, it actually seems to be an offline online RPG. The game is totally offline, but the MMORPG community in 2017 has gone all crazy and it's up to you to kick the AI online players asses. I think.

While I didn't like first 4 ./hack games, this game looks very promising. Much more smooth and beautiful and battlesystem looks great. Plus, I like hero.

They call it a MMORPG? i dunno..maybe because you play inside a MMORPG, i mean you are a character inside an AI controlled MMORPG.. wow pretty confusing there..

I don't know if you would like the game if you didn't like the first 4..but hey, it should still be a great RPG. Glad to see the playstation 2 still has life! and great JRPGS!

I think that in the case of .hacks the O in MMORPG stands for OFFLINE. So it's like Massive Multiplayer OFFLINE Role-Playing game.

And the trailer looks awesome. The battle system in the previous hacks wasn't that good (it was passable, but hardly even that), but I absolutely loved the story. This seems to fix the bad battle system, and the plot seems interesting. Definitely one of my Most Wanted games at the moment (after FFXII and Okami).

About the game


What's up?
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth of the roomscale experiences i think Budget Cuts is my fav. Just a demo/early access still, but the stealth is just so cool. (2 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @Megido: have you tried any cockpit type games? Like Elite Dangerous (4 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog so it retained the photorealism of filmed footage, but you could still lean in and around and everything would shift with perspective. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @KORNdog: I saw a few recent 360 cameras being advertised as VR cameras and they're 2D. I think 360 video is pretty cool in general though. (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog sony did quite a cool thing with a violin solo guy where they filmed it all with 3D cameras. but then converted all the elements into a 3D scene running in unity. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I can kinda imagine VR in something like Battlefield being pretty incredible too but I'm not sure how well that would work with most people's stomachs. (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @GriftGFX: yeah, i can't say i've seen any though. even the stuff on youtube is stereoscopic. it just requires a fixed head position. no leaning forward etc. (1 Hour ago)
