His plans to decide on what ethics will apply sound like my planning on when to do the mowing and other landscaping stuff.

You know, ZK is definitely not the first sentient being who thought they could finish Skyrim by the end of the week…

Well, he doesn’t need to eat, sleep or go to the bathroom, so a 161-hour marathon is entirely possible, and that’s assuming a hour each day for talking to fleshbags and getting an extension cord to plug himself in.

The furthest I got into Skyrim, I was Level 64+ and still not slain my first dragon. My Phase-1 was to do every other quest in the game before I started on the civil war, and slaying dragons was after that. This was all in service to keeping dragons out of my way so they don’t disrupt my questing until I’m good and ready for them. But all that was around 50-80 hours (and made obsolete half-way into Phase-1 when I formally transitioned to PC); I can only imagine Kodi is even more methodical than me.

The better the hair, the dumber the human? I laughed very much.

reminds me of that Treehouse of Horror Simpsons episode where Homer gets the scalp of Snake Jailbird as a wig XD

Logic checks out. I don’t think Scott does anything to his hair. But Tan Blonde Guy at Mega Game? I’m sure he styles every single hair.

Not sure, I think Lucas takes pride in his appearance. Working out, being well dressed, I would assume he also likes to spend some extra time in front of a mirror. He’s a good looking dude, knows it and likes the attention he gets from other dudes and thus makes an effort to look his best (without being arrogant about it). But that is maybe just the vibe I’m getting from that character. Ethan on the other hand would be more the type that gets up in the morning, takes a shower and then shows up in the morning with… Read more »

I would like to know from Tim on his take about this. Just out of curiosity to see if I got it right. (Character insight-wise)

It’s good to see that ZK is truly learning from us. Specifically, they have already encroached upon the skill our species have been honing for at least as long as ethics – procrastination

I like how Lucas has ZK all figured out, he has the upper hand in this discussion and he knows it.
I think ZK knows it as well, but just doesn’t want to admit it to himself. It’s a lovely interaction.

Besides, picking up Humans’ bad habits and tendencies ain’t exactly asserting your “superiority” over them when you bring yourself down to their level.

I wonder- as ZK plays more games with morality systems (Fable, Mass Effect, Etc) if those inputs will complicate, cloud, or assist his growing struggle with moral philosophy.

Depends. Will he be playing the sequels to those games? If so, he might just throw morality out the window and decide to kill all humans, not enslave. And he would have every right to! Man, I still hate Fable 2 so much.

Get ZK to play Ranked League of Legends, and he will decide that Humanity has to die by the next afternoon….

Those last two panels make me feel sad about my own life decisions. Always wanna accomplish something but there’s always a fun game in arm’s reach…

You know, they need to get Scott in on more of these conversations. His willingness to (grudgingly) change his mind is the best evidence of his sentience yet.

The casual way he still mentions murder and conquest of humanity is still evidence he is dangerous, no matter how humorous we find it on this side of the screen.

With Zeke complimenting Lucas’ hair, I have to wonder what his thoughts are on attraction to humans. I mean, he’s probably disgusted by them, but does he have a subjective view of what makes a human attractive? Is he compiling information based on what the internet considers attractive in humans? Or is he merely judging hair based on objective attributes like health, amount, etc.?

Lucas’ smugness is the stuff of fucking LEGEND in the last panel.

Also, I love how this comic went from superhero stuff to Ethan and Lucas debate philosophy and ethics in the backroom with a robot. No sarcasm, I really love it. It has this old Picard-Data vibe to it all.
