The Matrix Online: "$15/month Blue Pill"
Posted: Wednesday April 13th, 2005 by

I've been doing some reading around the net about the Matrix Online, and to say that some commentary is "less than glowing" would be an understatement.

So, being the crotchety ol' bastard I am, I decided to make fun of the game. No, I haven't played it myself. I can't afford another MMOG subscription. But, in reading the reviews, I likely would have avoided the game anyway. But, I do still try to be the mouthpiece of the MMOG community from time to time. So, I'd be more than happy to hear from those of you playing the game: good, bad, or indifferent.

The game takes place after the third movie. A shakey sort of peace exists between the machines and the humans of Zion, but the Matrix itself is still contested: rogue agents, dirty criminal underworld, etc. At any rate, there are messages to "red pills" scattered around the town warning them against thier actions. So, I ran with some of their imagery coupled with my cynicism.
