Three years I worked for GameStop, two as a manager. My GameStop was also in a terrible part of town (I’m in the south eastern US) and, like a lot of GameStops, we were just a few short steps away from a Wal-Mart. I have seen shit that still haunts me.

After 16 years of grocery store retail, Hell would be a sublime vacation spot. Too bad I don’t GET vacation days…

Sure you do. You just can’t take any because there are not enough people to cover for you taking one and even if by some miracle there are it is a holiday and therefore blacked out for vacation time.

15 years in a grocery and it was great compared to working in a customer service call center. You think retail customers are bad wait until you start dealing with people who have already been waiting on the phone listening to the loop of bad music and ‘your call is very important to us’ messages for an hour.

A human waiting hours on the line must be like a robot waiting for a human to finish his sentence.

Its true though. If you ever need convincing just google “People of Walmart” and you’ll get all the photo, video, and anecdotal evidence you could ever wish for. Same shit happens to all retail but walmart gets so much traffic you can see all the permutations there.

Imagine if this doesn’t work, and the charge doesn’t have the effect of putting Zeke down. There won’t be any chance of going back after that. And either way work or not, I can see this being Lucas and Ethan’s “Beatles” moment, where the band breaks up. Hopefully, Zeke doesn’t leave that room…

well the charge was installed by the great weeboo when he built zhek. Does not take much of a charge going off next to the primary hard drive to render it inoperable and lights out XboT. the gang is just pigybacking off the old self distruct. then agian thats trusting he didnt fuck that up too.

Good point: You could install a RAID.

You know, at least once Ethan needs to be like “I’m sick of your shit Zeke” and walk out.

It is easy to bark while you have no bite (see most politicians without a majority), so it’ll be interesting to see if he stays this snarky once he is able to move again, or how people will react to his threats.

I know it’s a webcomic so it’s gonna move kinda slow. And I think the plot idea here is a really good one. And maybe it’s just me, but Zeke’s hostile comments are getting so old so fast at this point. We get it, you hate humans, blah blah blah, it’s starting to make me wish Scott would just trigger the failsafe already. But like I said, maybe it’s just me.

Unfortunately I have to agree. While still enjoyable this is starting to feel a little bit like Dragonball Z (where Goku charges his Kamehameblabla for 15 episodes and then misses).

The longer this story arch goes, the less likable the sentient Xbox is. Starting to wish he’d blow up all ready

Now, even if he does promise not to kill anyone, does it really count if he kills Ethan? who knows 500-600 dead ethans might let him vent it out? lol
