Then WHY THE FUCK don’t they all look like Flynn? I think they just took the canon and trampled on it and then pissed on it and then fucking set it on FIRE.
I’m really glad I’m not the only one who was bothered by that. One of the main problems I have with the whole franchise past the original. Especially since the whole program looks like their User is something I love about the first film. I was really hoping that they’d mention he appropriated them for the Grid, or something along those lines… Nope, he wrote them all. -___-
in my head i’m just going with that they were from another system/written by a slew of users and flynn is just sort of a lying douchebag/because THEM KNOWING THE TRUTH ABOUT USERS WITH HIM IN HIS CURRENT SITUATION IS SOMEWHAT UNDESIRABLE… . and/or THINGS THAT HE HAS SAID IN AN OFF-HANDED MANNER HAVE BEEN MISINTERPRETED BY PROGRAMS AND TAKEN AS IRON BIBLICAL LAW MORE FREQUENTLY THAN ONE MIGHT THINK… . .
e.g. it never really registering with flynn that, despite deeply and wholly not wanting programs to view him as a god [e.g. betrayal land], guess what bro a whole lot of them freaking do and you should watch your mouth
also after 1k computer years stagnating with just flynn only flynn he’s somewhere we’re sure we’ll have faith no no perfect system wharrgarbl i’m sure truths have become wildly warped and misconstrued by the programs that are still kicking around
kind of likely???? maybe????
jesus christ that we have to headcanon forever because canon hurts is just
…at least we’re good at it? :\
I cannot figure out what the hell is going on in this video.
I am talking, of course, about the opening cutscene from Tron: Evolution. Granted, this IS the Tron franchise we’re talking about here, and moments of lolwut plot and continuity derp are to be expected, but there’s something…special going on when your opening scene barely makes sense in context.
Before I start rambling too much, let’s first take a moment to appreciate what’s really important about this scene: Tron kicking ass. A lot of it. These Sentries (???) do not know who they are fucking with, and they’re taken out in short order as Tron artfully pings off every available surface like the cyber death ninja he is. Appreciate it while it lasts, players, because you’ll not be seeing it again.
However, this brings me to my first point. Who the fuck are these guys? They’re wearing Sentry uniforms, and they have a Recognizer…but this is supposedly before Red Sentries were a thing. Red-lit Programs have a particular significance in this universe, and by all other evidence Clu is still trying to keep his plans on the down-low at this point…so why would he have active red-lit Sentries already letting loose with the shenanigans?
Second of all, the implications of what’s going on here are pretty eyebrow-raising. The red-lit Sentries and their Recognizer are clearly headed for the open Portal, where Anon is about to rez in for the first time. When Tron actually gets there, we see that there’s a Red Sentry already there and waiting, as well…which basically means Clu was planning on having his guys shank Anon before he could so much as take his first steps. I actually don’t have a problem with this idea: I’m sure Captain Oblivious told Clu all about the new System Monitor he just cooked up, and Clu sure as hell wouldn’t want extra Security eyeballs hanging around right as he was about to initiate his Operation Zombie Apocalypse false-flag front. What gets me is how unsubtle this cutscene seems to be indicating he’s being about it: again, Red Sentries in uniform, Recognizer, etc. You’d think he’d have just quietly sent a couple of Blackguards still wearing blue so nobody (read: Tron) would suspect.
One wonders just what the hell Tron made of this whole incident. It’s not brought up at all during the game, naturally, and Tron only gets to show up for approximately ten minutes before zombies start happening and Clu shanks him. It is sort of implied that Tron’s got his suspicions re: Clu, so I wonder if this thwarted (poorly-executed) attempt at murder might not have forced Clu to kick things into gear before Mr. Badass Gridcop and his new deputy could start really looking into everything…
…or maybe it was just an excuse for a really cool cutscene and matters of sense and context and plot significance didn’t particularly enter the developers’ heads.
Tron Fandom: We reject your reality and substitute our own, because clearly you guys cannot be arsed.
The overhead narration for the scene with the TVs and Alan being Fierce Papa Bear.
Fact: Tron Universe says fuck continuity. In every single moment since the end scene of the original movie Tron.
Butwhat if they meant his life partner?
I know they don’t but what if. WHAT IF.
Fandom says “I reject your reality and substitute my own, because apparently you guys can’t be arsed.”
(Also re: The Board, what a bag of dicks.)
Has anyone else besides me actually read the 2.0-verse comic Ghost in the Machine? Because oh my God.
I just…I can’t…there are no words.
What are you doing.
Put the axe down, Alan.
Oh disowned 2.0 continuity, what even.
Along with my “Why Evolution was disappointing”, I could also have “Why Betrayal seemed awesome at first but now should never be considered canon because it not only contradicts the film but at times even contradicts itself”.
However, that is a long title, so instead have this photo of an ISO tron calls “Ophelia”. Either they dun goofed, or Tron is computer racist.
Oh, Tron. WHAT IS CONTINUITY AND HOW DOES IT WORK. That said, Betrayal does have some nifty character stuff that I am hesitant to outright discard, just…yeah, the internal consistency leaves a bit to be desired.
Also rofl “space racist”
