* UnusualUserInterface: Both played straight and averted. To play the game, Tokuoka uses what appears to be a PS2 controller, but also has some kind of Virtual Reality headset on, which appears to respond to his head movements. When just using the desktop or the email systems, he uses an ordinary keyboard and monitor.

''.hack//Liminality'' is a 4-episode {{OVA}} which deals with what is occurring in the real world during the time period of the first four [[Franchise/DotHack .hack//]] games. The OVA was originally distributed as a bonus with the games, one DVD per installment. However, subsequent re-releases haven't included the {{DVD}}s, and they can be hard to find used. In Japan, the {{OVA}}s were re-released separately as part of ".hack//Integration", a campaign to help consolidate the multimedia franchise. Liminality is unique among .hack// in that it is set entirely in the real world; there are a few segments where the characters play the game, but we never see the game through their eyes during these scenes.

** This is foreshadowed in Mutation, which has a news article about vending machines with online security.


Added DiffLines:

** It's a Face Mounted Display, also known as FMD or Neuro Goggles. It is very common in the .hack franchise, with the explanation for its invention being that it's more immersive. It doesn't actually control the game, it's just the visual display. There were also gloves being developed to complement them, which you find out if you follow the in-game "News" stories.
