Re: [1523] DLC may be required

Maybe Megatokyo, at least in its current form, was created by Sony to provide a safe space for training the EDS prototypes It wouldn't seem narrative-wise that Sony created MT, although they certainly could be using it. Yet and then, there's the other potentials like that to us it's Mega, to those ...

Re: [1523] DLC may be required

EDIT: And if one of the most popular avatars for games disappears, wouldn't that have an impact on the market? And there's a kill order for Ping. Are they worried about Ping channeling renegade Miho? Or that Miho could influence or control Ping somehow? Huh, you just made me realize that a lot of t...

Re: [1523] DLC may be required

Maybe a main point of her being released only partially finished is for Megatokyo to be some sort of a training ground to make Ping (more) human. An experiment by whoever's behind it, Sony or otherwise... Well they did send Ed to retire her, so if this guy is working for someone, maybe it's not the...

Re: [1523] DLC may be required

Whoah, we are actually inside Ping's thought processes/programming. Very cool. And "Get PIe" is a key determinant of branch paths. That makes it far, far more important than we thought. I forget - did we ever find out what Ping uses pie for? I know it came up in conversation.... But he brought up pi...

Re: [1523] DLC may be required

Okay, not on the Patreon yet, but that title seriously made me LOL. Am now picturing Ping:
A) Frantically looking for a good wifi signal so she can download it, or
B) Frantically looking for an exit based on the request made by her date.

Ping is just cute regardless of what she's doing.

Re: [1522] a little different

It's a sad thought... but you know, there's a 0.00001% chance any male who would design "realistic" gynoid parts for mass-production wouldn't "give them a test run, just to make sure". Hopefully they hadn't uploaded her personality seed core yet. Tested for quality by #17... Gyaaaaah... makes me th...

Re: [1522] a little different

Okay, going to bend the fourth wall a little here. We don't know anything about this guy directly, which is making everyone speculate wildly. Given the setting, some of the speculation is darker than normal. However, I can't imagine Piro taking the comic anywhere near that direction. We're 1500 epis...

I'd like to point out that if he indeed realizes that Ping is a gynoid and not a high school student that any laws that apply will be for robots and other synthetic entities and not the laws that apply to human minors. That would be the realization that made me delete my first post and go 'Ack' ins...

Re: [1521] Letting stuff happen

I think you've all been forgetting/ignoring a very valid and important point - what the heck is with the pineapple? And for that matter, where did Junpei's sister even get it from, anyway? Do they just keep whole pineapples laying around for no good reason in that house? The pineapple is an Europea...

Re: [1521] Letting stuff happen

Based on the revelation in [1068] Recap Episode: Itz 5howtim3! https://megatokyo.com/strip/1068 we discover that Megatokyo is a virtual world running in the unMod universe rather like Endgame exists in Megatokyo I've come to the conclusion that both Kimiko and Miho are both characters belonging to ...

Re: [1521] Letting stuff happen

I wonder, if we did a poll in the forums, who would everyone pick as "closest to perfect?" that would leave us Megumi or Junko if we're talking about 'real girls' only ;) I would include Sayuri and Meimi(!) in there as well, but yes, Megumi is my top pick.

Re: [1521] Letting stuff happen

Rereading the comic, I had a sudden thought: NinjaGrrl and Yaku are going to be very good - maybe great - friends. Maaybe more than that, but serious, lifelong friends for sure. The Next Gen Piro & Largo? Not sure, but maybe.

Or I could be totally off base. But it feels right, you know?

...Miho never said she would 'tell' Piro what was up with her... Miho says she would 'show' Piro whats up with her... If Miho actually proffered such a defense, my response to her would be, "Yeah, semantic games. That's definitely the way to prove to everyone you're not a manipulative little minx."...

Re: [1521] Letting stuff happen

I would just like to point out that Miho never said she would 'tell' Piro what was up with her, nor did she ever promise to tell him. In 1309 before they leave MegaGamers Miho says she would 'show' Piro whats up with her (if he left the store with her ofcourse). While I don't like Miho, I don't thi...

Re: [1521] Letting stuff happen

A couple of additional strips where it's demonstrated that the whole thing between Piro and Kimi is based on something other than genuine attraction I think you're underestimating the amount of character development that has gone on since those strips, even if actual relative time has been short.

Re: [1521] Letting stuff happen

Over time there's been a lot of complaints about Miho being "Manipulative" After rereading quite a few strips, realizing that at the beginning Miho was attempting to get Ping to serve as her surrogate, it's become plain to me that all of Miho's manipulations were in an attempt to put obstacles betw...
