Sinon will be appearing in the Drama CD(OVA) version of SAO. It's probably a 1 episode Drama CD, so far that's the only official information on Sinon's appearance

I think the reason to why SAO and GGO impact me the most is because I`ve play Ragnarok Online and Counterstrike as a teen. So both of these arc interests me a lot.

For me, thinik the reason why GGO's Arc had the most impact for me is the intriguing premise that even the safest VR device can be used as a medium to kill a person.

Oh...have you read the light novel? Because it was not a VR device that kill GGO player.

The player was kill physically in the real world.

What I think he means is that it still not safe to use because there is a risk of getting kill while playing and realizing there is something wrong in the Real World it's hard.

Somebody gets it.


Plus the fact that I said "premise". But why did we need to disclose important spoilers?

That's why it can be said that VR device should not be used
1) If you live alone
2) If your house security is not strong

There will be definitely scenario like the "laughing coffin" case where jealous player might want to kill the real player due to some reasons if ever a VR game was to be establish in the future.

I don't think the <<Laughing Coffin>> were a jealous type of people. I personally think they're people who find superiority in having the power over life and death. Just saying.

So, the evil guy would kidnap Kirito and try and trick his parents into letting them marry?

The Eve Online meta-game is fairly vile with denial of service attacks on player's IP during important moments, spying on Skype conversations, sending someone over to flip the power circuit off... but even there you're unlikely to actually kill a player over a MMO game.

But then again, you certainly do get the rare unhinged gamer who can't differentiate real from virtual who kill their fellow gamer over pixels. So it's certainly a viable threat. Having said that though, the odds of a random MMO gamer being able to stop a unhinged crazy from killing him with a gun when either plugged into a VR world, or not, is probably about the same.

Is Eve Online that brutal?

Seriously... Skype wiretapping...DDoS... O.o

Anyway, at least the GGO case was found to be an isolated case. But as a question: how the heck did Xaxa get his hands on a rare Skill?

I don't think we even need to go as far as VR, I've seen some articles come off gaming sites about gangs that go to other internet cafes in places like Korea where they go and try to find players and beat them up because of some in game dispute.

When one of my former co-workers went to a CS LAN thing in china, they actually had separate rooms for each side so that the loosing team wouldn't start brawling with the winners. You picked a side and you were not allowed to switch.

Never heard of the EVE Online stuff, though I didn't play with the hardcore groups when I was playing, but I could see it happening, certainly the DDOS and Skype stuff.

Anyway... For the actual LN stuff, anyone else really interested in whatever is keeping tabs on Kirito in UW? To me it's something different that doesn't really fit in with the explanation of the world we have so far, so I'm interested in seeing how far it's willing to stretch the parameters of it's mission, especially considering what we know about how Kirito affects the people near him in this world.

Which novel do you think Kirito is the most badass in?

Spoiler for ggo, fairy dance, mother's rosario don't read if you didn't finish:


Haven't finished Alicization yet, but I have a feeling he'll be badass in it too.
