There's nothing on IMDB except it's in development so don't hold your breath on this one. I did not know there was TRON cartoon. Huh, learn somethin' everyday.

If you're into cartoons, then definitely check it out! The animation/writing/characters/voice acting was all well done. The only unfortunate thing is that it only lasted 1 season. It does take 2-3 episodes before it really gets going though, so bear with it.
Hmm, I only saw its pilot episode. It got better? Do I need to see the movie's sequel to make sense of it? I enjoyed the original movie/film.


Yeah it got a lot better. Pilot episode was meh. Once the characters become more fleshed out, it gets a lot better.

You don't need to see the movie's sequel to make sense of it. The timing of Tron Uprising is between the original and the sequel. They throw in some references to some lore that shows up in the sequel, but it's not critical.
Ah, I'll have to check it out when bored (too much other stuff to see and do). Too bad no reruns to record. Did it even have a series ending?

It's early days yet. Give it time. Once Windows starts closing its ecosystem and if this crossplatform API turns out to be the shit, Linux desktops are finally going to be catching on.
I hope so! Come on, Linux.

Alright, but still, I don't think anyone who uses Linux did it so they could play a wide variety of games on, right? Surely they're an incredibly small minority which is why most game developers don't throw them a bone...although surprised that Dying Light has Linux support so maybe it's slowly changing?
Hopefully, Valve's SteamOS fixes this. I remembre Dave Braben and others said no Linux plans back in E3 2014 due to port difficulties, but then they will have a Mac OS X port. Bah!

IIRC, /. had the most comments for 9/11 too. I don't think any gaming events can beat that horrible day.

Well that sentiment is certainly true, but 9/11 is not the largest thread ever here, it was one about the Obamacare website (879 comments). This is followed by the Elite: Dangerous thread, my mom's death, 9/11, and the release of Half-Life 2, which are all the threads with over 500 comments.

When you perform a search, the list under popular threads changes to most comments all-time, rather than the past week.
Thanks Blue! How is your server handling from these top discussions?

Haha, I know... watch out Digg!
Digg? That's old news (thanks v4). Reddit!

This is exact same concept was done on some obscure G4 show years ago.
Is this online somewhere for us to watch?

I couldn't say for sure, they were all alike to me, so finding a particular episode is proving difficult. The episode was staged in a garbage dump or a scrap yard. Bill Sindelar could have been the host. He was running through an obstacle course carrying a shotgun, a rocket launcher, a plasma rifle, full body armor like the Doom marine, and some other Doom stuff. The goal was to see if was possible for one guy to carry so much crap while battling demons. I'm trying and failing to find the show online. After G4 went off the air most of their content was purged from the internet.

I did see a few old G4 episodes like very old Icons episodes, but not its newer episodes that I wanted to see. Those were cool. I didn't have cable/satellite TV back then. Thanks to the Internet, I was able to see them a decade later online. Haha.

Yet another grind event. Used to be you just had to run a special mission to get event stuff. Not any more. Now every single one is just another grind, as if there weren't enough grind already. Hope you like running the same crappy mission 15 times for one lousy ship!

I think it's finally time to uninstall.
So, no missions to skip grinding? I like the action missions in its open beta. I just don't have time to grind like in WoW. Ugh! Speaking of WoW. I need to check it changes since I only played its original WoW.

So many layoffs these days.

There are a bunch, but is it a down market? I don't think so, there are more games/developers than ever. It is just the bigger boys have a lot more competition to compete, good. They needed the wake up call, it seems many leave with their ideas, execute and make games suits would not consider.
It is not just gaming too.

This is only five years old?? I would have sworn it would be fast approaching its tenth birthday.
And conversely, I still remember when this game was in development hell over at Interplay. We never thought we'd see the day where it actually shipped, let alone run for 5 years.
Eh? Interplayed made ST:O? I didn't even know. I remember their cancel(led) Vulcan game decades ago though!
