  • The Matrix Online

    I don't usually play games, but after a short time in the beta test for this game I got hooked. I was wondering if anyone else was playing or will be playing?

    On the previews on Enter The Matrix, it looked very cool. I thought it amazing that every room of every building of the city is to be accessable.

    Although, getting hooked in playing a game about a world dominated by computers that control you preception of reality is just a bit too close to weirdness. If I was tired enough, I'd start to question which side of the Looking Glass I was on.

    So how deep is the Rabbit Hole?

      Well, there goes my meatspace social life.

      The irony of plugging into a simulated reality, playing a charachter doing the same thing, is a bit too poetic

      Maybe it's the machines trying to ease us into the idea of plugging into an alternate reality willingly?

        no.. I have my Star Wars Galaxies and thats all the addiction I need right now... besides I am half way to Jedi you can't just walk away from that....
        If I had a nickle for every time someone offered me ten cents to keep my two cents to myself... I would be a rich man.

          Dont know, how much money do you think the Wachowski Bros. can make?
          Im not much for games, and i too see the iron in the game, but i have to admit that i was kinda intrigued by the idea.
          The only stupid question is the one that you dont ask.
          Or the one that ends up in dev/null.

            heh, i take partial blame for getting Grifter hooked on this game, I cant count how many times he watched me play it at my house and said "damn, I think im gonna have to get this game". hehe.

            It's a sweet game, I dig it, quite addicting, if you dont mind devoting a few hours to it each night from the consequential addiction that'll come from it, I highly recommend it. the design rocks, the once a month events created by the live events team are great, the fact that the wachowski's and paul chadwick contribute so much coolness to the evolving story and direction of the game rocks, and best of all, one of my favorite things, the players themselves can have a direct impact on the continuing official storyline.

              I do have to say that this game was far better then the Enter The Matrix. I also wasn't to fond of MMORPG's. World of Warcraft just wasn't the cool thing. Now, actually plugging into a simulation as stated above, I think this is awesome. Worth whle playing.
              Linux is not the answer, its the question; the answer is yes!

                You just made me dig out my old LucasArts "Star Wars Collection Volume 11". It's been in the top of the closet gathering dust since 1997. See what you made me do? Thanks a bunch, Siviak
                I enjoy talking to myself...it's usually the only intelligent conversations I get to have.

                      i have to laugh. my friend has it and he's given almost everyone in the game a lapdance as a hot female alien stripper. BTW(he's creepy and ugly)
