Okay, I finished playing through Enter the Matrix with Niobe (one half of the game, basically) and it had some interesting tidbits that correlate to Matrix Reloaded. I’ll include them in an LJ-Cut, whited out, at the bottom.
Not much else to report today. Stayed home and telecommuted due to having two bouts with the unpleasant rear output — at JOSH’S place, no less, where I’ve never needed to take care of that particular piece of business before. Left the party feeling very ugh and icky and tired, so I mailed da boss to say I’d TC in midmorning and went to bed. I didn’t get much work done today, but frankly the office’s projects are in a bit of disarray — the usual amount of ‘Waiting for so and so to give me something’ and ‘Waiting for so and so to e-mail me’ type slowness.
I Am Determined to get at least one more level in Fist of Discomfort done by this weekend. I’ve learned an important lesson from EtM — have a wide variety of ways to dispatch your enemies and approaches towards dispatching them and you’ll be okay. ETM only occasionally had more than one approach, which ain’t cool. Even if the game is easy at least folks can have some fun and variety.
In white, although frankly by this point you should be prepared anyway: We see the ‘new oracle’ in the game, IE the new actress since the old one died of diabetes. *sigh* They give an explanation in game that the Frenchie Guy whose name always eludes me told her to be careful, so she changed faces for safety reasons. Now, at the point in the plot timeline AFTER Neo collapses at the very end of the movie, Niobe visits the Oracle, who tells her that Neo’s MIND AND BODY have become seperated, and he’s trapped between ‘our world’ and ‘your world’. I think this torpedoes the ‘multiple matrixes’ theory, and it’s in fact very similar to .hack, where people in comas are still logged into the game. I’m sure there’ll be an explanation forthcoming. The Oracle mentioned that Trinity can get Neo back, but she’s going to have to go through hell to make it happen. Then Niobe and Ghosts’s ship, the Logos, gets chased by squiddies down, down, down deep into the earth into uncharted territory, where they get stranded. End of game.
