Stern just posted this to facebook and took it down right away, no idea what it means.
I might be crazy but I think the display animations on most Spike 2 games look great. I mean, yeah, it looks like a computer game. It IS a computer game, with a pinball machine attached. Maybe it helps that I don't play console games or expect Hollywood-caliber CGI at 4K 60fps? All I know is I played a bunch of JP2 last night and it looks awesome.
No chance of this happening, but TBH I would prefer just a brand new Tron game over a vault/reskin/light retheme. After owning an LE for years, Tron really un-grew on me with its limited ruleset and relatively flat scoring (outside of the combo collects which quickly grow much larger than multiball jackpots, and sort of ruin the game). Tron really nailed all the non-gameplay aesthetics, but to play it? Meh, bring on the new stuff. 75% of recent Stern games are better than Tron, IMO.
I've heard this more times than I can count, but I just don't get it. Pretty basic mode/multiball game. Shoot the colored arrows. Sure, there are four characters, but that's a one-time choice, then you just play the game. Multipliers don't make the game any deeper, they just score more.
Quoted from snaroff:
Again, JP2 has spoiled me. Another thing it does better than SWLE is practically no "cheap drains". When I lose the ball on SWLE, 7 out of 10 times I feel cheated. This almost never happens on JP2. When I drain on JP2, it's always because of a missed shot. The 3 center targets on SWLE are just brutal...
You'll get no argument there! JP2 is already one of my all-time favorite games. It just does every. single. thing. so well. And yeah, SW layout is brutal. All the cheap drains might be worth it if the layout wasn't an uninspired cookie-cutter fan.
"In March 2015, it was revealed that Disney had greenlit the third film with Hedlund reprising his role as Sam and Kosinski returning to direct the sequel. Wilde was revealed in April to be returning as Quorra. Filming was expected to start in Vancouver in October 2015. However, in May 2015, The Hollywood Reporter stated that Walt Disney Studios had chosen not to continue with a third installment, which was confirmed by Wilde the following month."
These things happen. Again, fingers crossed.
