Plot Points:

After doing a world tour, Sora's up to... maybe level 52. But that secret boss that I was supposed to be at 60 to beat? Well, it's not level 60. It's level 80. (WTF.)

Anyway, returning to HB the computer went crazy and was trying to destroy the town. So into computer land we went to stop the MCP.

Man, the 80s were awesome, weren't they? When we thought we could get sucked into video games and forced into the game grid. Oh yeah, and if we lost, we were de-resolutioned. I mean, really, WTF is de-resolution?

And why do older men keep hugging Sora? Although Tron was the first time that the kid look uncomfortable about it. Like whoa, computer program, don't shove your digital bits up against me.

So Tron becomes the new MCP or something and Sora then tickles him by banging random keys on the keyboard. Am I the only one who remembers what happens when Cloudspawn (re: Roxas) touch computers? They break them.

Of course, no one bothers to get Sora to stop messing about with the computer because he saved their butts—yet again.

I guess it goes to show the culture difference between Sora and the previous generation. Squall went to some academy, which explains his technical skills, and the FF7 people lived in a high-tech world, whereas Sora lived on Destiny Island and never had to go to school. The most technologically advanced stuff he had was his clothes.

Anyway, the town is restored to its former glory of... weird luminiscent shit falling from the sky like a nuclear winter. I'd like to point out that Cid, Squall and Cloud at least look believable with their reactions of "...oh this stuff again."

The town changes to Radiant Garden, perfectly timed with Aeris's revelation that was its former name. (Wow, Cetra powers at work. Those Ancients can do amazing things.) The fact that there's no garden doesn't seem to matter. I guess the radiant part comes from the radiactive debris that's beamed into the air so it can rain down on the populace.
