Watching any MMO is a test of patience, especially if it's one you're not familiar with.  Combine that with trying to keep it moving for the audience and the fact that these guys don't play MMOs and you're going to be bored no matter what.

As for people getting offended about the game being reflected poorly, be serious.  The game looks like crap, it's based on something that is all but forgotten and is now regarded as the most overhyped franchise of the last decade, and it looks to be about the most overly-complex MMO to ever come out.  There's nothing to defend, the game has 3 servers and is now free to play until it dies.  The state of the game speaks far more hashly than a dude on a web site.

I've played several MMOs over the last 15 years, and this one looks worse than any of them, even SWG.

i checked out the MxO Forum thread about this. One guys says their just trying to get picked up by the escapist. That makes no sense. Keep up the ER

Trying to change to the other tab and I accidentally clicked the GiantBomb logo which took me back to the home page.  Now I've got to reload most of the video. :(

This game look so boring.

Posted by Track

Ryan is acting like a popular insensitive kid hating on his unpopular friend, Vinny. I love Vinny.. it's sad to see that someone doesn't. This only makes me see Jeff as a greater person than I used to, which I thought was impossible. Jeff & Vinny FTW!

holy crap at all those butthurt nerds in that matrix thread. There are some people who get it but most just take it way too seriously hah.

like this guy
"It's incredibly poor journalism really. No research, no community outreach, no testing. If this had been made for a respectable gaming website the editors would have laughed at them and advised them to finish school before looking for work."

and the guy who thought they were making these videos just to get a contract with the escapist lolzzz

@Alpha_02: Yeah because watching people play videogames and being amazing at it is so funny.

Wow, some people in that MXO thread are getting all emotional about this. Pa-thetic.

Hilarious. I understand the people who don't think it's funny. GiantBomb humor really isn't for EVERYbody. But some of that stuff people are saying is really pitiful and defensive. They called Ryan and Vinny gay, they called them bad journalists... The list goes on and on.
Good job guys, you really showed how great the MxO community is! They're totally not overprotective of their shitty little world even though they know it isn't very good and also dying!

thank god this game is shuting down so the idiots who play this game wont be able to annoy ryan and vinny, giant bomb FTW!!!!!!

I'M IN THE MATRIX ASK ME ANYTHING

Posted by Dethfish

Some of those MxO players need to just get over it. No matter what they say or do the game is still going to be shut down in a couple weeks. It's pathetic.

I'm glad to see that some players decided to be helpful to Ryan and Vinny though. I guess that shows that not all MxO players are complete assholes.

Posted by atomic_dumpling

I can see it now: Ryan running away from an angry mob, the chat window constantly getting filled with gems like:

"giantbomb SUX! U R GAY THIS IS NOT FUNNY!"
"FUCK OFF FAGGOTS!"
"We are gonna gank you like there is no tomorrow!" (bonus point for irony there)
"IGN is much better than you idiots!"
"Ryan you fat slob!" (You know, stock internet insults)
"Matrix Online was such a great game until you guys ruined it!" (um, okay …)

… and then an admin, GM or whatever comes along and bans Ryan and Vinny for being too silly for MXO, because "Online Matrixism" is a very serious business.

Posted by Nadril

Oh wow, that forum post is serious business isn't it. They really need to fucking lighten up a bit, it's a game (and a terrible one at that).

Quick look was pretty funny even though the actual game is so dull that it's hard to really make it interesting. At least some games are so terrible it's funny, but matrix is just bad and...dull.


A tip though to the matrix fanboys, there IS a reason why your game is the first game SOE is shutting down. Just let that one boil in for a moment, even games such as Planetside are still going on under SOE.

Posted by spiceninja

Do you talk to yourself like that when you play games all the time Ryan, or are you doing it just for the video so we know what your doing?

Posted by Fiveoutafive

I bet Jenny is on da block

Posted by Metiphis

Ryan you gotta hang out with the Matrix community, it's just going to be entertainment gold.  The missions are dull.

Cool, door's over there then. Good job defending your MMO!

Vinny. You were absolfruitely correct to hang on to your O'Reilly JavaScript book.

Posted by Phished0ne

I think my favorite comment on the forums is:


" Anyone noticed the homo-erotic subtext behind the two of them getting all picky and feisty over the quality of their man? I mean i'm all for apt charachterness but i'm not exactly worried about the cut of his butt or the shape of his hips - and frankly if that's their sexual orientation power to them - but they strike me as the type to throw rocks at people who are different because it's the cool thing to do."

he didnt seem to understand that they werent "being picky" as much as they were gawking at how none of the character models looked like human beings..
Posted by Nightlight

Ha ha reading the MXO board comments were funny.

Great video guys keep it up :)

Posted by Vorbis

Can't blame Ryan for wanting to be abit more serious, the MxO community took alot of offense over the first video. Don't know why, would of been the same for any MMO, always confusing as hell for the first 10 levels.

But fair play to that synapse77 (sp?) for helping them,.

@Vision: OMG there is totally a Mara persona in persona 4. And yes....it looks like a penis

Video quality isn't good enough to read the chat box...

Posted by Chocobo_Blitzer

Well bless synapse or whoever for trying to show them something. But you know as much as I love giantbomb, it does get kind of tiring to see nearly every game they put to video, they're entirely inept at playing.

And while the clownish behavior is part of the appeal of giantbomb, I can't help but feel a little embarrassed when there's another community involved as with this MxO deal. Regardless of how small and.... odd it may be.

Posted by FluxWaveZ

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.

Indifferent. There's something missing in your logic here, and it has to do with the fact that comment posters do not represent Giant Bomb. At all.

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.

Man, so far this game sucks soo bad im bored watching them make fun 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.

@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.

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.
