The third chapter! The newest episode! ...Quite possibly the best yet.

Let's start breaking this down. Sound included, for the first time I can remember, repeated music from earlier that I can recall. While I picked up on that immediately, it didn't actually break my experience. The sound is just as good here as ever.

Moving right along, for the first time in my reviews it's high time I start talking about the plot itself. We are seeing people become more fleshed out as time goes on, and much to my joy that includes examining internet relationships. This... pretty much nailed it on the head, as far as I can see. Plus, purely from a fan perspective you've given me a new pairing to ship in the form of Whyti and Nylocke. Heh, kudos to both the writing and the voice actors all across the board for making me actually believe their performances.

The new conversation avatars are... Actually, quite interesting. They look less clean compared to the older ones, but I actually enjoy these more now that they have fluidity, and look overall better. It's kinda like actual game sprites as they advanced from glorious 2D pixel goodness to 3D, the pros and the cons alike. In short, they're an improvement in my eyes and well worth the wait.

And of course, now we get to the humor and action. Yet again, the dialogue manages to be an absolute riot at times, and hysterical when it means to be. The humor has maintained it's level of class, and I'm exceptionally pleased to see the return to form. As for action, the move away from the grid in the hacker battles has opened up the world in my eyes, and by and large that means more interesting looking fights. Combine with increased movement in the action beyond just standing on opposite sides of the arena, flinging the same attacks again and again, and the game feels more and more intense than ever.

So yeah. 3 episodes in, and each one has raised the bar compared to the previous ones. The voices keep getting better, the humor is still constant, the plot is really starting to roll and get personal, and I am more invested than before. Kudos all around. CONTINUE!

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

it has alot of good qualities that a t.v show would have, with some of the best voice actors on Newgrounds. It also has quality writing, merging humour and drama together. To see alot of these qualities merged together

Saw this at the movies on frontpage and before I watched this, I watched the first and the second one.
I have to say this is one of the best movies on Newgrounds that I've ever seen.
The theme reminds of .hack, wich I really loved. I would love to play TOME if it was real haha!
The action is great, lot of different characters with each a different style.

Just a few words needed to be honest:
Keep up the great work!

Can't wait for part 4!
