Launched in 2004, The Matrix Online was an MMO continuation of the movies of the same name. Unlike the other movie themed MMOs that came after, "MXO" was built heavily into the lore and had the potential to keep The Matrix alive for years. Sadly with such a reward came a massive risk. This episode we dive deep into The Matrix and what made it tick, have a chat with someone who cost the developers potentially millions with a ghostbusters reference, and hear about how a group of volunteers are taking the concept of Hacking into The Matrix quite literally.
