Sloth: Correct. It was never specifically mentioned. Just a generalized “auxiliary programs, like speech and movement”.

Not exactly the rebound relationship that Scott was probably looking for, but nobody’s perfect.

I dunno. I think a Switchbot would’ve by now undocked from the head and knifed him, and a PCbot would’ve gone full-blown Embla and virus’ed itself into oblivion by Year 3.

PS4bot. Yeah, that makes sense. Because with that jet engine, it’d never be able to sneak up on you.

Well, gee, if we’re talkin jet engines, I think the ol’ xbox 360 Elites take the cake. Can hear that roar from the other end of the house with all the doors closed in between 😛

And I had two. Their roars were equivalent.

A smart PCbot either gets good security programs or surfs only the trusted websites and uses Adblock even then.

Zeke’s body could certainly do for some upgrades, like some tanks for heat-cooling fluids on the chest for example.^^

I just wonder how many ways Lucas and Scott have thought of over the years. Surely, that robot is still waaaaay behind.

Honestly, I love those little touches. How do we know that he’s actually a sapient being? Well, hey, he’s actually got an interest in music, for one.

You should watch the movie: Johnny Got His Gun. The song is about that.

They already know who they are and where they live. Truly, keeping not-Zeke at the store is dumb beyond dumb.

I mean, why? Lord Neckbeard knows who Analog and D-Pad are, and where they live. He presumably also knows where they work, and who their friends are. Analog and D-Pad aren’t in the big time leagues along with Captain Prime and the like. They presumably don’t have the means to maintain secret bases, off the grid safe houses, etc. The back of the store is pretty much the only place they have. Like the rest of us, they have to go to work and do their jobs if they want the rent to get paid. Murderous neckbeard warlords don’t really… Read more »

I don’t think I’d have let Zeke see Scott, y’know.. just in case. If it were to go wrong, he know’s Scott now.

Interesting choice for the song he was singing when blocked out. Fade to Black – Metallica
Life it seems to fade away
Drifting further everyday
Getting lost within myself
Nothing matters no one else
I have lost the will to live
Simply nothing more to give
There is nothing more for me
Need the end to set me free

I sense a deal coming on… Zeke gets his freedom and agrees to help stop The Master. He agrees to harm no one else except Ethan, who he gets to kill once per day. I see so many great comic strips of absurd Ethan deaths in the future.

So is the “theme” that Zeke mentions referring to the arrow bit from the beginning of the comic strip? That’d be a fun throwback.

I dunno about Zeke’s character. It looks like he’s trying very hard to be like HK-47 what with the superiority complex of machine over flesh, but that can only work if Zeke doesn’t have any sort of emotions. Hence why it was funny when HK does it because he announces his emotive first before speaking. Other than that, the chaotic neutral vibes that Zeke has is alright, so far as long as he doesn’t break the fourth wall.

This Zeke is different to the one in CAD 1.0. When that Zeke was turn off when giving Ethan some sexual machist advice he was turn off during a long time and when turned on again, he continued that advice.

This Zeke is sentient the whole time.
