Engineering Failures – Part 1

2014/12/30

Unless you’re building a robot to, I don’t know, test motion sickness on amusement park rides, I’m really not too sure why you’d do this either…

I think a better question would be why he programmed your robot dog for nausea too. o_O

Today’s example of questionable coding has been brought to you by Mega Man #43 (January 2015) by Ian Flynn, Powree, and Gary Martin.

And so another year of blogging draws to a close on The Raging Fanboy. A big thank you to all my subscribers, both old and new, for continuing to visit. Please feel free to spread the word and encourage others to visit my little corner of the Internet, as it would be a nice surprise for my blog to experience an increase in traffic for the first time since 2012 by the end of next year. 😦

See you all in 2015! 🙂

Boss, Interrupted

Hey, villains have to do something to pass the time while waiting for the hero to reach their lair.

There's probably a good reason why "passive-aggressive needlework" isn't a popular form of stress relief.

The Philosophy of Mega Man

2012/06/18

I don’t normally use my blog to plug titles that I’m fond of, but if you have a comic book that deals with the ethics of creating weapons of war for personal gain…



…the moral dilemmas that come with creating sentient artificial intelligences…






…and anti-technology terrorists making bomb threats and discussing the danger of giving robots free will…


…and this comic book is not only aimed at children but also based on a 25-year-old video game, then you know you have something special and worth reading.

Seriously, go out and pick up a copy of the new Mega Man series by Archie Comic Publications. It’s the first title I’ve seen in a long time where the writer is as just as much of a fan of the characters as the readers are.

Subtlety, thy name isn’t Albert W. Wily.

I kind of miss the classic “Dr. W”, personally.

Strange Moments in Video Gaming – Part 4

2012/04/23

What kind of knight makes time with his fair princess in a graveyard? In his underwear?

"Fair princess, mine codpiece doth chafe in thy presence."

You know, I’d gladly chalk this up to an innocent misunderstanding, but given the kind of information the sequel to the above game volunteers to us about the fair Guinevere. a.k.a. Princess Prin Prin

"Canst thou convert thy measurements to the metric system?"

…I’m suddenly feeling much less generous when it comes to giving them the benefit of the doubt.
