Hi guys. I was real glad to see this episode come out. Over the course of the winter break I was just sitting by myself in the dark because my girl was away visiting her parents. Gundamn! was on break and I was just wasting away my time with a terrible video game. It was absolutely terrible, haha.
But you know, I picked her up from the airport just the other day, and lo and behold, Gundamn! has a new episode up, too. I guess good news comes in waves, lol.
My only exposure to the original Tron was through Kingdom Hearts II where it was very bland and I just wanted to get through Space Paranoids and leave with my new keyblade as fast as possible. Then again, that was my general impression of most of the worlds in KHII. The only things I enjoyed in that game were spamming my dual keyblades in Valor form and witnessing the pure unadulterated RAEP that was the Final form. Good times. =3
So, I saw Legacy without any bias for the original. It was pretty much a mindless action flick with a good effects budget. I mean, they just shoved the main character into those death games with no real explanation. I enjoyed all the little Zen tidbits, but outside of that I was not expecting much from the film. I do think it made a heartfelt attempt at connecting its characters together, and I do praise it for that.

Libra was a technological marvel and the most powerful weapon in the earth sphere. If you haven't noticed, the factions in GW like to organize themselves behind powerful symbols. For instance, the Alliance had the Noventa Cannon (a super badass artillery/AA cannon if I've ever seen one), OZ had the battleship Barge, and various other organizations used the Gundams to represent them.
White Fang would not fire on their own colonies like some of the other organizations seen in other Gundams. As far as I can tell, having this battleship is kinda like the US having its stache of nuclear weapons. They're not for use in keeping the citizens in their place, but have practical use against enemies and symbolize our technological and military strength.
I had something to mention about superweapons, but I have forgotten what I was going to say. Anyway, yeah, stop letting crazy people control your evil superweapons.
