    Cool September in VMK-Tron Month! (x2)

    see vmk.com front page - pretty cool!

    Looks like the month of Sept will be all tron-related. Speeder bikes, a new room, tron teleporters, the works! Even a new tron outfit, nice!

    Re: September is Tron Month!

    It should be exciting! But I must ask... why Tron? Does Yavn have a thing for it and that's why? Probably. Someone ask him the next time you see him, ok?

    Re: September is Tron Month!

    Tron was a very "less-than-successful" film. From one aspect, it really doesn't make a lot of sense to feature it on VMK. Yet... from another point of view, it's brilliant marketing. Take a lemon and make lemonade. Enough young VMK players who didn't experience the initial release of this bomb will become intrigued... perhaps even buy or rent a copy of it... and deposit a few more million dollars in Disney's bank account.

    Everyone wins. Disney milks a few more bucks out of their loser movie. VMK players get new and fun stuff. My Disney stock goes up.

    Very true on that one Tom.

    As for Tron, one of the 75th Mickey statues was also of it. (In case anyone cares.)

    Re: September is Tron Month!

    man.. all the tron hating! It was one of the first movies to ever include computer animation in a full feature film! It was also fully hand-animated to give the live actor portions the effects!

    TRON was awesome.. it just seems its alot older then most of the VMK age group. TRON keeps kicking up dust from time to time as the original writer (a bit of a wierdo) keeps trying to get TRON 2.0 made. They made a decent video game of it about 2-3 years ago and Disney released a 2 DVD set for its 20th anniversary.

    Gosh.. where do you think FLYNNibus comes from???

    Cool Re: September is Tron Month!

    Well Yavn says that the reason he is using Tron is because he is a video game designer (VMK) and the movie IS about a video game designer that gets sucked into his own game.
    And he mentions to save up your credits for Halloween

    Yeah but the problem with Tron is that while it was a great film at the time, it's now sort of a technological joke for even the people who speak of it with fondness.

    My only problem is the programmers of VMK had ALL of disney to pick from and they went with Tron? Sorry, I personally think that was a bad move. Give me villians or Princess/Hero Month, something a little more recognizable than Tron.

    No offense to the people that like Tron, I like the movie to, I was just expecting something better.

    Either way the teleports seem cute but the room seems quite DARK. I'll have to play in it myself.
