The Matrix Online

Date: September 11th, 2021

A little known fact about little ol' me is that I was actually around for The Matrix Online's beta back in the day.

My mom's boyfriend was all privileged and got to be a beta tester for the game, so I got to hang around and watch the glory that was The Matrix Online be built... nowadays, the game is sadly dead. But you can still boot up the emulator and walk around the landscape and talk to like the one or two random people who are doing the same sometimes... so there's that, I guess.

I thought this stuff was so cool. So many of my interests are like tomboyish or whatever because I was raised around dudes in their mid-30s who cycled in-and-out of my mom's legs, which means that I got to be part of the revolution that was The Matrix Online. Fuckin' rules. I live for it.

And hey! Don't like The Matrix Online?
