TRON 2.0

Welly well. Seeming as the game is close to release, and the demo for said game is out, I'd say its about time to talk about more companies taking twenty-something's fondest memories and bashing them into unrecognizable turdlettes.

There doesn't seem to be all that much in the way of reviews for the demo, I suppose most are going to withhold judgement until the final release of the full game, but that doesn't keep a
vocal few from airing their opinions out in public. If the view spoken of in that link is any indication of the final verdict on the game, it looks like our precious memories will be left where they stand, revered as campy bits of pop culture that when viewed through twenty years of traumatic childhood, adolescent misconduct, teenage rebellion, and the alcoholism of early adulthood, seem like high fucking art.

You may be confused as to why I would say that the gaming sucking ass-nuts would save our beloved Tron. Well, from the buzz on the streets, it seems that they have a script for the Tron 2.0 movie ok'ed, its just waiting for a greenlight from Disney. Disney, on the other hand,
seems to be holding out on the greenlight until they see how well the game is received.

If your wondering why I'm saying that by not making the sequel, the original would be spared, go out and rent some sequels to movies that your inner child is emotionally attached to *cough*Phantom Menace*cough*. Or watch a 10-10-220 commercial with Alf in it.

With that being said, if you want to play a real Tron game, do yourself a favor and steer your browser to Armagetron. The screen shot you see up there in this post is from said game, and by golly its a keeper. I've been playing the 0.1.* versions of the game for a couple years now, and I've got quite a warm squishy place in my heart for it. The other day I saw that 0.2.4 was out and swipped it up, post haste. The new and improved version includes such enhancements as "you go a hella lot faster", "the AI is no longer as dumb as a bag of shit without the bag", and "the scrapity-scrape is a lot easier to achieve." For those not "in the know", the "scrapity-scrape" is not a vicious strain of gential herpes, but a move in the game wherein you drive so close to a player created cycle-wall that sparks begin to fly off of the contact point and you start accelerating at an ass-blistering rate.

Its also made for pretty much every operating system under the sun, good show! If you have the means, I highly recommend picking it up.

[ED Note: If you have windows and want to play armagetron like it looks in the above screenshot, and not with the assy default graphics and sounds, download and install the movie packs after you install it.]

I had a dream last night that had Ian in it. He was feeding my husband these big green pills he referred to as "green linebackers" and his girlfriend had an english accent.

i could write him a letter saying that if you press the right sequence of buttons on a gameboy advance that it'll play tron and he'd print it in the hopes that somebody would give up the goods.
