LOL. "I like how you don't read. You see a letter adn say what you want". Vinny is loving this.
"777, that means he's read-write access for everybody, just talk to him!"
I love Vinny. :D
Jack in sounds so dirty.
finally a game that makes WoW look good.
good video. i love it when something crazy happens on screen and all you hear is a deafening "WOOOAHHHHHHHHHHH" lmao.
ugh why does just watching this make me want to play wow again?
" Can someone explain how Ryan ruins everything he's in? Not only is he just mean and unbelievably unfunny, but he has nothing interesting to say. Please keep him out of the video content. Hearing his voice on the podcast is torture enough. "Go away.
"Con" does actually come from consider, as far as I know. I remember typing /consider on mobs in EQ1
Freestyle vector olympics!

"NOT LIKE THIS!" -LOL...I wish they had kept switch.
"...but now Ryan is getting super serious about playing and isn't really talking at all..."
Still curious to see what the female characters are like along with what would happen at the start of the game if you take the blue pill.

" @Reverseface said:Seriously. The first episode was great because they were stumbling through everything and having fun (somewhat), but now Ryan is getting super serious about playing and isn't really talking at all. Hopefully next week they'll try focusing on the community a little more." Does anyone else get the feeling watching this ryan is abit too serious playing, he doesn't leave much time for vinny to make jokes and play off each other like Jeff & vinny do on ER. I think they should get jeff in on this so vinny has someone to talk with. :P "this * 10 "
I, too, want to only half a body... =(
"wonder if anyone in the matrix is also on this site... and will say hi. "
Lots of clicking, doors and stairwells. At least the guys keep it interesting.
blah blah, stop complaining, there is no way the community wont be insulted. The people still left playing this take it too seriously. Besides, these guys review games for a living, and when you have a game that sucks this bad, and takes place after the worst of the three matrix movies, what the fuck do you want? A lot of the laughs have to do with the stuff that is wrong with the game.
Is there anyway we can watch the final ep live?
lol hes a clicker xD
Cant the Matrix Online community just piss off!
" Seriously, some of you guys need to take a look at yourselves. You're blindly insulting a community of people who enjoyed playing a certain MMO and in turn defending the site that you have attached to. I enjoy Giant Bomb but those of you who are calling the MxO community 'retards' or any other insult to that effect are no better than those who insult the Endurance Run with such words. How would you feel if your favorite video game was played ridiculously by 2 guys who also joke about every aspect of it? Even if for the majority of you guys the Matrix Online looks stupid, there are people who enjoy it, just like with everything. Stop acting like Giant Bomb fanboys who will defend them 'till no end and acting as if they're the best. I enjoy Giant Bomb, and the Matrix Online does not look that appealing to me, but act intelligently. "
ME: Isnt that just typical behaviour of the majority of people on the internet..especially in regards to people who play games? There's an interesting tribal mentality going on here..but thats another matter.
Ryan and Vinny are acting like guys who have never played the game before, have no idea whats going on and are giving honest opinions about what they think of the game as they try to understand it. They are not reviewing but chronicling their own experiences. Personally i find the hand to hand fun to watch, but the rest is nigh on awful....and that's coming from someone who just quit WoW after 7months.
People are defensive of things they love, be it the matrix, giantbomb or vinny messing up on Persona. Its just rather sad that most can't see the wood for the trees.
Nevertheless insulting ones favourite videogame would be tantamount to insulting their choice in footwear. Its an opinion and open to ridicule as much as anything else.goddamn quote boxes..gahh
Ryan and Vinny - Don't know if you know this, but the bar at the top of the screen corresponds to the number keys on your keyboard. You don't have to open your skills during a fight and place them in the bar, you set up your skills before the fight then you just use the number keys rather than having to click on tiny icons to do everything.
All the menus have prominent shortcut keys as well.
I'm not an MMO douche who's going to get angry because you don't know how to play but it's INCREDIBLY frustrating to watch you guys awkwardly fumble around with mouse clicks :)
Edit: Also your character stats seem to be set up for a ranged character. So you should start using guns... the game would probably be a lot easier that way.
" @Besetment: They did directly insult those who play this game, in the first episode, by saying something to the effect of "Who could possibly want to play this?" and remarks about how anyone who's into the Matrix fiction is an idiot.Anybody should be able to tell they were just cracking jokes, that was not some malicious attempt to insult everyone who played the game or likes the Matrix. "

Is Vinny drunk?
Haha the community reaction is great. Why are they so angry? And why do they think that killing you in The Matrix Online will ruin your day?
This is priceless, I can't wait to see what happens next. I hope you guys focus more on the community and less on the missions. At least you're trying to learn the game.
This.. actually.. looks.. pretty cool. *embarrassed and weirded out*
I love when Ryan and Vinny do videos together. It always ends in hilarity.
I can't wait for the end. Will it be a big explosion or a simple disconnect? Either way it will be awesome
want more,i wanna see what happens to this game,it got me interested, u shuld hook up with the other players 4 like one episode,it might be cool to take a tour around the matrix,and see people fly around and stuff lol
" @MediumDave said:If you actually watched the video and listened to Vinny, he actually says he admires the fact that MxO has a nice group of dedicated players, or something to that effect. Regardless, just because they're making fun of the game does not mean they're making fun of the user base, and any player who jumps to that conclusion just might be a little over-protective of their game. I think this second video really shows that Ryan and Vinny are actually trying to play the game and not just be funny, which MxO player's should appreciate.
"" How would you feel if your favorite video game was played ridiculously by 2 guys who also joke about every aspect of it? "Well, while I admit that I would only be slightly frustrated and that that particular comment was slightly irrelevent, when you insult an MMORPG in particular, it's like insulting the whole community behind it. Imagine a popular gaming website doing a video and insulting WoW the game; many members of the community would visibly display there anger. And even if most people don't consider video games a big deal, there are some who consider it very important. I'm not saying that that's good or okay, in this case I'm just saying that the reactions to such videos should be expected. Those people are most prevalent in niche games/MMOs like this one. "
I wouldn't give a shit? Who the hell cares? It's just a video game. It shouldn't define you as person. It's not like I made the game. It's a GAME. People shouldn't take shit so seriously. If someone playing your favorite game badly and making fun of it hits your Anger Button, you need to chill the fuck out.
That being said, enjoying it, Ryan and Vinny. Your annoyance, feigned or otherwise, with Vinny is amusing to me. "
I love vinny"s matrix like false memories of the matrix movies.
I have some very fond memories of playing MxO back when it was actually FUN. Like all MMOs, it had a great community and i met a lot of interesting people while playing. It also had an interesting story arc but i quit playing once i realized the writters were just pulling plot devices out of their ass.
Does anyone else hear brad in the backround?
" @Besetment: What do you mean? I never implied that. I'm talking about commenters who are calling people in the MxO community to the effect of 'retards' saying that they're no different to those who insult this Endurance Run and Giant Bomb from the MxO community. "Ryan and Vinny are not insulting the game, nor do they hate the playerbase. Playing a game and cracking jokes about what they see is not disrespectful, it's routine. They're new to the game and just jumping into it, which is how nearly all the quick looks are made. This is an homage to MxO, and they're putting a lot of time and effort into making these videos because the game is about to end. It's the commenters who are trashing the game, and trashing people who play it. Your question of 'how would you feel if giant bomb did a quick look of your favorite game' lost its logic when you implied that this game is seen negatively by anyone but comment posters, who don't represent Giant Bomb. If people are insecure enough about their game that they're offended by some wisecracks about stupid looking models or ugly buildings, then maybe they deserve to be made fun of.
worst game ever
