The world would be a poorer place without Matt and Trey in it.
I'm really hoping they finally get their Oscars (and join the EGOT club) with the movie version of The Book of Mormon. Mel Brooks is the only comedian so far to reach EGOT status.

Seeing as how PCs are already the minority platform, being the minority within the minority is not much of a winning strategy...

Hey my question is who even uses MS support for XP?
Big companies. Really big companies who need security patches for the OS so that they can continue to semi-safely use it.

This actually looks pretty fun. Reminds me a bit of old school fun with CS.

Was going to say, looks like CS.
I was going to say someone crossed BF4's gunplay with UT's assault mode.

Meh, xp boosting seems lame even though you use xp to "buy" stuff now.
Isn't that even worse?

Anyone know if Uprising ever got a DVD/Bluray release?
It never had a disc release. However in a measure of retrograde mercy, Disney was releasing it on iTunes alongside its original airing, so you can still get the complete series (in HD no less) through iTunes.

https://itunes.apple.com/us/tv-season/tron-uprising-vol.-1/id518763883

It's also on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009KSBKIY/ref=dv_dp_ep1

In fact AFAIK this is the only way to get it now. Disney has pulled it from Netflix and other streaming services, don't stream it from their own site, and I'm a bit surprised they haven't pulled it from Amazon/iTunes yet.

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?

Nope, not really, but that only makes you even more angry at Disney for not continuing the show.
Well to be fair, the series can only end in one way. (Spoilers)

Clu wins, TRON is captured and reprogrammed, and most likely Beck is de-rezzed.

You could also take the cheaper price and then turn around and spend half the savings on a VPN and give them the finger.

To be fair, I really doubt there's a VPN service that would be willing to handle 1Gbps of traffic for standard prices. Or for that matter is capable of delivering anywhere near that rate.

How is this NOT Terraria 2?
Agreed. Terraria 2 would not be a bad thing, so I'm unsure why they're trying to stay away from that concept.

I really enjoyed how Daft Punk played out in both Tron Legacy and Tron Uprising. Shame about Tron Uprising though. I really hope they resurrect that show when/if ever a new Tron movie swings around. Disney really screwed that series over when they moved it to their XD channel. And they wondered why viewership tanked...
Quick note: Daft Punk only worked on the movie. The show was by another composer (Joseph Trapanese), though they were obviously going for the same Daft Punk vibe in their score.

Anyhow, Disney continues to have no clue what to do with that channel. Star Wars Rebels is getting the same poor ratings; the only thing holding it up is that it's one big ad for toys and movies.

Forget the games. I'll take another Tron: Legacy, or better yet some more Tron: Uprising, please.

Tron: Uprising was the best animated series that was wasn't produced in Japan.
Emmy Award winning, I would add.

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.
Yes, you need to have seen the movie to make full sense of it. It has its own characters and villains, but some of the overarching themes and groups are inherited from the movie as it's set before the movie. I think you could manage without, but certainly having seen the movie helps.

And yes, it absolutely gets better.

Personally I think it's cute that they believe that Google doesn't already do this.

Google's entire business is advertising. Everything else from Android to Fiber is just a means towards increasing their reach with advertising.

The masses don't have the reflexes for more complex RTS games like Starcraft. That's why MOBA's took off. MOBA's cater to the reflex retards and that's the majority of PC and console gamers sadly.

Games like Descent, Doom 2, Quake 3, Unreal 2004. Those are all high speed, high reflex, highly demanding on intelligence and reflexes to process that incoming visual information and make sense of it quickly.

The vast majority of humanity simply can't do that.
There's a huge difference between Starcraft and an FPS. The fact that FPSes don't have an equivalent of Actions Per Minute makes them vastly different. You can't just say both require quick reflexes as if they're equals, because UT's not going to reward you for moving your mouse around in a pattern as if queueing up unit construction.

PURGE THE ALIEN SCUM!

Man, Space Marine was a fun game. I should play through it again sometime soon
Agreed. It wasn't a deep game, but it was a fun, casual romp.

An arcade racing game? I think you need to come up with a better description here, Blue. That typically implies cars.
