So You Wanna Do a Cinematech: Nocturnal Emissions Liveblog
Starring The Wachowskis
Episode 19 was the first shown in 2006. Its main highlight is the ending of The Matrix: Path of Neo
, the late cash-in attempt to redeem the saga. One of its selling points was its supposedly different ending. How did that play out? Well, after Neo (who looks disconcertingly like George W. Bush in this game, for some reason) seemingly knocks out Agent Smith
, the Wachowski brothers themselves barge in on the game
and shit gets recursive
Andy Wachowski: And enjoy enlightenment!
[both engage in mocking laughter]
The actual final boss is a mega-Smith made up of many Smiths, and he even rips off a giant pair of sunglasses from a nearby billboard. Cinematech
cut right to the final blow and the new ending, which is really just a drastically cut version of the one from Revolutions
, with the added bonus of a classic Queen
song. It's not stated whether or not Neo actually died, like he did in the movie proper.
Another notable trailer is the one for Burger Wars
, an FPS that... well, click the link and just look
at it. Burger Wars
has very poor, flat, cel-shaded graphics and such characters as a clown, a fat clown, and a generic tough chick. The trailer itself features a terrible anthem, and such lame taunts as, "Here's your beef, rookie bun burner!" It was compatible with Windows, Mac, and
Linux! The trailer also declared, "Now in beta!" I never would have guessed
. The trailer actually referenced Star Wars
and The Clone Wars
Perhaps unsurprisingly, it may not have ever been released. The person who posted the video linked above said that all the info that they could dig up on the game was an empty page on GameSpot.

Heh, yeah... I decided to skip the episodes that were less interesting and/or redundant. Sorry for the confusion.
