Toxic Players and (Lack of) Redemption in .hack//G.U. vol. 1//Rebirth
In November of 2017, a remaster of .hack//G.U. called Last Recode was released with very little fanfare. Last Recode is a remaster of the three original .hack//G.U games (Rebirth, Reminisce, and Redemption), plus a new fourth entry (Reconnection). Rebirth, the first entry of Last Recode, would have been great if only there weren’t the new main character to contend with.
