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

2014/12/26

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.

Of Good, Evil, and Glossophobia

2014/06/01

Apparently, Dr. Wily’s fondness of public speaking is dependent upon his moral and ethical alignment.

So you're a good public speaker when you're bad and a bad public speaker when you're good, then?

Robosexuality – Part 11

2013/02/13

Science will have unleashed hell upon the world when they create romantically oblivious artificial intelligences capable of friendzoning each other.

And that's when Ice Man discovered that the coldest and most barren wasteland isn't in Antarctica. :(

Robosexuality – Part 10

2012/09/10

Just because robots don’t engage in sexual reproduction, doesn’t mean that they’re completely ignorant about the process.

Talk about a whole new kind of baby boom.

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.

Not-So-Secret Hideout

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

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

Robosexuality – Part 9

2012/06/06

When you start using blanket terms to refer to your and your colleagues’ biological offspring and robotic constructs like Dr. Noele LaLinde here, that’s a pretty good sign you need to get out of the lab more often.

Now that’s a discussion about the birds and the bees I’d like front seats to.

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.

The Zombie Apocalypse and You

2011/04/28

If you have zero firsthand experience with a sudden outbreak of the undead, never fear! The wonderful people at Phenotrans, the pharmaceutical company behind the anti-zombie medication Zombrex, have been kind enough to provide us with this helpful Health and Safety poster so you’ll know exactly what to do when the time comes.
