What I’m Playing: .hack/GU Redemption

I loved the original .hack anime and the game series with Kite and Black Rose. Although the levels are repetitive, the story was cool and I loved how you’d get different aspects of it by the gameplay, anime, and videos.

New Year. Fresh Start.

Five years ago I shaved my head and apparently caused total strangers to explode.  A simple haircut seemed like a Very Big Deal last time, but didn’t faze me at all this go around.
