I imagine that right now you're feeling a bit like Alice, tumbling down the rabbit hole. That's because today we're visiting the distorted world of the Matrix Online
. Here we're witnessing a Live Event for the Machinist faction that took place during the game's hey-day.
Jared, who shared this shot with us, explains the game's appeal: The first two-three months where the Live Events team was online almost every other night, making personal connections to players, organizing the troops and generally stalking the roleplay community. The game may have been awful, but the combination of the live events team and roleplay community made it more than worth it.
We're excited to see lots of people sending screenshots to the One Shots
mailbox for games other than Guild Wars
. Not that we don't like Guild Wars
-- but variety is the spice of life and we love to see shots from games we haven't highlighted lately. (Trust me, we'll come back to Guild Wars
eventually!) We only post what you send us send your screenshots and stories from games long dead to firstname.lastname@example.org
. You may see it posted here tomorrow!
