I think he was in the movie "TRAN".:lol:
For me it was Galaga. I may have dumped 10,000 or more quarters in those machines.
The arcade game was based on the movie, it was a movie tie-in.
Thanks for the heads-up -- DVR set. :up:
Wow.. And I was happy with the trailers for "Tron: Legacy"...
When this movie opened, I saw it 5 times in 6 days. The one day I didn't see it? I was getting married that day.
It took you all night to write that Wikopedia page, didn't it? :lol::lol:
Galaga was my favorite... though I also grew to love Gyruss as well in the arcades back then.
Meanwhile... I always wanted them (whether I watched or not) to make a sequel to Tron and call it Troff.
I think they missed a good opportunity there.
Another thanks for the heads up!
Can't wait for Tron Legacy to come out IMDB.com says December.
Gyruss had the best audio in the arcades period. I stayed in the arcades back in the day, eventually ended up working at Aladdin's Castle for a few years. Myself I was a Defender/Stargate & Robotron 2084 player
Got the DVR set to record this, will be interesting to see this.
Well, I must say in all honesty that I wasn't impressed. The HD quality was good but the audio was just horrible. A lot of surround effects were missing and the low frequency rumbles were almost non-existent.
I compared it to the 20th anniversary THX DVD and the DVD has far, far better audio.
The bright side was that there was definitely more detail in the picture and the computer graphics never looked better. I've had just about every release (VHS, Laserdisc & DVD) and this was certainly the best PQ wise.
Can't wait for the Blu-Ray!
Ditto on Galaga. Not trying to toot my horn but I used to be able to roll over the counter (it stopped at something like 999,990) and get it up close to 2 million. One quarter would last me at least 45 minutes, much to the shagrin of the arcade owner.
That was hard to watch, I think I made it 20 mins. CG made it despite TRON
And, it's always a good day when you wonder into some hole in the wall deli and find an old Galaga machine sitting there
Thanks for the heads up Chris!
I've noticed most of the channels on DISH are pretty lacking in audio quality, likely as the result of recompression in some way.
No idea if DirecTV is the same.
For example, the recent MGM HD showing of Koyaanisqatsi was severely lacking in bass compared to the DVD or even the LaserDisc.
There is something to be said about leaving the past in the past. I watched it and was sad for me. There was a day when I thought that was cool.
That took longer than expected.
There's another view of 'tron guy' floating around the Interwebs.
Please don't post it! :lol:
That pregnant-looking Tron guy is from the planet 'Quasar' -- his works are in a drawer -- must be all those vacuum tubes.
Just wondering...did you have the same hair back then as you do now?
Yeah, I too was a bit disappointed. Let's hope that this really wasn't the newly restored version that's supposed to come out on BD. While the VQ wasn't that bad, and the painted circuits on the characters looked the best I've ever seen, the AQ was a bit lacking now that you mentioned it.
Before I ever think about buying the BD, I'm going to have to read the review on Blu-ray.com
Well, it was thicker back then...
