I Love Tron 2.0

Tron 2.0Tron 2.0 totally rocks.  I’ve always been a fan of the movie, in a geeky sort of way, and had seen the PC game when it came out in 2003.  This Christmas, I snagged a copy, thanks to my bro-in-law.  Oh baby…light cycles, disc hurling, pulsating neon lighting…who needs Halo?  I logged 8 hours of game time in two sittings…now I remember why I try to stay away from PC games.

As we continue to dream of an eventual re-make of the 1982 classic (you’re all with me, right?  Right??), here are a few related amusements to keep us occupied in the mean time:

  • Tron 2.0:  The 1st-person shooter-quest pictured right, that rocks.  $10 on Amazon, baby.
  • BM Tron:  A 2-dimentional, simple light cycle race.  (Closely resembles Snafu, for all you Intelivision gamers.)
  • Discs of Tron:  An arcade game from the 80s where you hurl discs at a guy across the room, who’s simultaneously hurling them at you.  I used to love this game, and may even hunt one down when my mid life crisis hits.
  • Tron:  Another arcade game…but a weak one, involving a combination of light cycles, disc throwing, MCP-demolition.  Cheesy graphics, meager game play.
  • GL Tron:  A 3-dimensional light cycle race.  This actually looks really cool.  I haven’t tried it yet.
  • Tron Guy:  Wow.  This is wierd enough to make me stop writing this post.

Back to music.

    I think Tron man could lose a few pounds and get rid of the mustache.
    Jeff Bridges was much cuter.
    I want to see Tron the movie in it’s original 70mm format someday.

    Agreed. What self-respecting light cyclist would allow his gut to hang over the handle bars of his bike? I do respect him for creating the neon-lit suit, though.

    It’s be cool to see the original Tron, indeed. But I also wouldn’t mind seeing a Watchowski (sp?) brothers rendition of it… 🙂

    Better yet, picture this:
    Tron vs. Neo (from Matrix)
