Posters for Fallout 4

I recently discovered a mod for the PC version of Fallout 4 that allows custom art to be added to settlements.  Of course I had to go and make some fembot stuff for it!  Some of them advertise that awesome radio station Radio K.I.M., and the rest are just some nice stuff to look at […]

10 years of Linux

Hooray!  Oh no! Yes folks, here in Canada, July 1 marks a momentous day.  And that day is the 10-year anniversary of the day I decided to ditch Microsoft Windows and switch to Linux.¹ It was July1, 2007 when I made the switch, and I remember being excited about partitioning the hard drive on my […]

Adios my 64, my Commodore 64

Does anyone remember those replica Commodore 64 computers?  I bought one when they came out six years ago, and I had been using it as my main “Internet” computer ever since.  It had served me well over the years, and had looked very cool on my desk, I must say.  I had also customized the […]

Look at me! I’m a journalist!

Shemale Robots III

It’s time to post another batch of shemale robot manips I’ve done over the last few months.  Some of these are little mini-comics, and a few were done by request, so enjoy! Kishin requested that Sarah Silver mini-comic, and he liked it so much he asked for another, and we did a collaboration manip as […]

One 2 One – Sal’s Birdland – Artificial Joy Club

Being a teenager in the ’80s in Canada, I got a lot of my music from the music video cable TV station MuchMusic.    One of the pop acts I remember was a duo called One 2 One.  I remember them primarily because I thought the singer was hot, and she had a great and unique […]

Robotman’s Cheap Handheld Calendar 2017

Who doesn’t love gaming on the go?  I can think of a few people actually, including myself, but never mind us! This year’s calendar is dedicated to handheld video game systems, starting with the phenomenon that was the Nintendo Game Boy and up to Sony’s latest handheld the Vita.  And if you’ve been looking for […]

RetroArch – Still Garbage After All These Years

Actually I wouldn’t know about the “all these years part”, but frustrated by the sorry state of Saturn emulation, I broke down and downloaded RetroArch so I could try the much-hyped Mednafen-Saturn core.  See my rants here and here for some context, and how low my opinion of these projects is. I immediately got stuck […]

Songs of the Day (a two-fer!)

I remember when I started this blog, I wanted to review one song per day.  I ended up more or less providing a YouTube link (oh, so ephemeral they are) and then rambling on about how my job was making me exhausted.  That and cracking stupid jokes and making lame puns. But I’ve had two […]

Automated BBW Dating!

This is fucking hilarious. I was doing a Google Image search for “Chubby Fembot” and I saw my very first manip in among the search results.  I was curious to see what kind of site would have this image on it, so I checked it out.  And oh my sweet lord, it’s a computer-generated spam […]

Ten Years of Phone Sex on NiteFlirt!

Well will you look at that, it’s been ten years to the day since I had my first phone sex experience on NiteFlirt.  Hooray! Remembering back, my first phone sex experience was with the lovely and talented Kaitlin, who was a natural at roleplaying as a robot over the phone.  I remember being so nervous […]

Emulator snobs

I’ve been wanting to make this rant for a while now, but after reading this thread on reddit (archive here), I feel that now is the right time to do it. Lately I’ve noticed  that there are some people in the “emulation community” who are just assholes.  They get mad over the stupidest shit – […]

Shemale Robots II – Electric Boogaloo

It’s time I continued where my first post left off, and uploaded another batch of my shemale robot manips. I try to make at least one new regular female android manip per week for FembotWiki, and I’ve gotten into the habit lately of making a shemale android manip for my own enjoyment too. So here […]

Propaganda!

To forestall counter-revolutionary regressions and the tactics of those who would betray the ideals of the sacrifices our Comrades have made, please benefit in these glorious depictions of our shared console heritage. Onward!

Robotman’s Tutorial for Fembot Manips

A few weeks ago, I posted a tutorial about how to do some lighting and shadow effects on fembot manips in GIMP.  I mentioned in that tutorial that GIMP isn’t the only software I use to make manips. I’ve settled on using a combination of IrfanView (version 4.10), MS Paint (version 5.1) and GIMP (version […]

GIMP Tutorial for Fembot Manips

GIMP is powerful, free image manipulating software.  I use it in conjunction with IrfanView and good old MS Paint to make my fembot manips. This isn’t a full tutorial on making fembot manips, but it covers making shadows and some lighting effects. The beautiful manip featured in this tutorial was made by Sarabot, and is […]

Robotman Reviews Windows – Windows 1 2 3

As much as I love the security of desktop Linux, I still use Windows for certain things.  And I’ve been using Windows since 1998.  So I thought to myself “What the world really needs more than anything else, is Robotman’s thoughts on the different versions of Windows over the years.” If you want to see […]

Shemale Robots

I’ve been making manipulated fembot images for nearly four years now.  They’re crude, but effective, and I like them.  The vast majority of my manips are “faceoff” manips, showing a female robot with her facemask removed.  I’ve gone into detail over on Fembot Central about why this is such a turnon for me, so give […]

Mednafen: Still garbage after all these years

Graphical User Interfaces (GUIs) have been around since the early 1970s.  They are not a new idea.  A well-thought out and proper-functioning GUI is essential to modern computer use. Think how frustrating it would be if your phone or tablet didn’t have a GUI, and you had to issue a memorized list of arcane commands […]

CyberFem Stories Volume 2 – Shemale Version

Hot on the heels of CyberFem Stories Volume 2 comes the shemale version!  The art for this was created by AB Lust at the same time, so here it is posted just a day after the female robot version. Thanks go out again to AB Lust for the beautiful artwork and to Kim Coquette for […]

CyberFem Stories Volume 2

The second installment of my series of short, sweet fembot comics is here!  Thanks go out again to AB Lust for the beautiful artwork again and to Kim Coquette for appearing once more as the robot technician. If you missed part one, you can check it out here. ©2016 Robotman and AB Lust.

CyberFem Stories Volume 1

I have a brand new comic to share! I’ve teamed up again with the incredibly talented AB Lust to bring this one to life, and it’s the start of a series of short comics that will take place in and around CyberFem Park – that wonderful, wonderful place.  And starring in this one as the […]

Robotman’s Cheap Classic Computer Calendar 2016

In the spirit of (literally) marking time and celebrating 8-bit computers of times gone by, I’ve made a calendar commemorating some of the pioneering home computers from the late 70s and early 80s.  The computers featured are: January: Apple II February: TRS-80 March: Atari 800 April: Commodore VIC-20 May: Texas Instruments TI-99/4A June: ZX Spectrum […]

Unlocking the Mysteries of Sega Saturn Emulation

The Sega Saturn.  It’s like a planetary system.  It’s like an atom.  Complex, yet ordered.  Dual CPUs and six other processors make it like a binary star system with six planets, or some mysterious element with a proton and neutron and six electrons. Nah, it’s actually a really fun console to own and play.  I’m […]

Kalie the Robot

Recently on NiteFlirt, I’ve been playing with a lovely chubby honey named Kalie.  She was brand new to fembot roleplay when I first contacted her, but she was looking for new experiences, and I’m glad she decided to try my kind of fun.  This single page mini-comic was inspired by her beauty and as a […]

Robotman Plays Guitar

For shits and giggles I’ve recorded some audio clips of my guitar playing.  This is me on my electric 7-string plugged into my Xoom effects box and into my laptop.  I’m not playing anything in particular, I’m making shit up as I go along.  © 2015 Robotman. Robotman – Guitar Improv 1.mp3 Robotman – Guitar […]

Fixin’ ta fix my controller

I really like my Saitek controllers. Not as much as I like my Logitech Dual Action controllers, but the Saitek controllers are what I use for my Nintendo 64, Sega Genesis, Sega CD, 32X and TurboGrafx-16 emulators.  They’re decently built and feel comfortable in my large hands. So I was rather peeved when my oldest […]

SG-1000, Master System, and Game Gear emulation

Before Sega turned into the pathetic quarter-profits-chasing caricature of its former self that it is now, they were amassing quite a collection of games for their own video game systems.  This was back in the 80s and 90s, of course, decades ago. For years I’ve been using a program called MEKA to emulate the SG-1000, […]

A better way to emulate the TurboGrafx-CD

For a while now, I’ve been enjoying some of the rare video games that came out for the TurboGrafx-CD.  It was an add-on that came out for NEC’s TurboGrafx-16 console, and was the first CD-based way to play video games.  I talked about it here, exactly a year ago as luck would have it.  The […]

Kim 10144213 Model 500 at CyberFem Park

I just had to commission another single comic page for the lovely and talented Kim Coquette on NiteFlirt.  She’s been so awesome to the technosexual community, and her talents are second to none.  So this is to show my appreciation for all of the good times she’s given me. My thanks go out once more […]

Tutorial: How to fix the terrible sound on “From Genesis to Revelation”

When most people think of this album, they think “wall of schmaltz” or “the one that Johnathan King ruined”.  I usually try to defend the songs on this album, but I usually forget that when I listen to it, I’m hearing a heavily edited version that I carved up in an audio editor.  To quote […]

Hooray for old hardware

My current hobby of playing decades old console video games through emulation is contingent upon some rather old PCs continuing to work as if they were new.  When I think about how my newest and main emulation PC is seven years old now, and how its backup is eleven years old, I realize that things […]

The Mikeification of INXS

I am a big fan of the music INXS released during the first seven years of their existence.  That would be from around 1979 to 1986.  It’s good, energetic pop-rock.  I like some of their later stuff too, some of the stuff they made while they were international superstars, but I’ll get into that later. […]

A Poem – “The Creation of my Robot Girlfriend”

Poems, Everybody! Here’s a little background on this one.  I’ve been having this fantasy for a few years now, and I wanted to write it out into a more substantial story.  But honestly, I don’t think there’s much more that I could do with it, so here’s a poem. Oh, and the basis of the […]

A review of PlayStation emulators

Emulation can get a bad rap sometimes.  I think that mainly comes from people who don’t really understand what they’re talking about.  I also think it comes from people who are just opposed to the very concept of emulating a video game outside the original hardware for which it was intended. Since I discovered the […]

Quizicality 04 – Odyssey²

As you may or may not know, the Odyssey² was a home console that included a full Qwerty keyboard.  The few quiz games available for it take advantage of this setup. Math-A-Magic! (1980) Yes, another math quiz game.  But this one is probably the easiest out of all of them to play because of the […]

Quizicality 03 – Apple ][

Though the hardware was released a few months before the venerable Atari 2600, the Apple II computer was capable of a few more tricks than that console.  I chalk this up mainly to the fact that it’s a computer with a keyboard and the fact that it’s hardware was expandable.  The graphics are nowhere near […]

Quizicality 02 – Atari 2600

Among the Atari 2600’s vast and vastly inconsistent library of games are a couple that qualify as quiz games.  And yes, they are both math quiz games.  We’re not going to see anything so astoundingly complex as words just yet. Basic Math (1977) This launch title for the 2600 (when it was still known as […]

Quizicality 01 – Channel F

Back in 1976, video games were still a very new phenomenon.  The Fairchild Channel F was not the first home video game console, but it was the first one that allowed for interchangeable game cartridges.  And even with the rudimentary tech inside the console, the game library shows signs of creativity beyond just Pong. Math […]

Quizicality

It’s time for another batch of video game reviews here on Robotman’s blog.  This time, I’ll be focusing on the exciting, engrossing and exhilarating world of quiz games.  Hang on to the edge of your seat, because nothing gets the blood pumping like a round of 20 Questions played on your old 8-bit computer, am […]

Robotman’s Cheap Classic Console Calendar 2015

Because I’m a cheap bastard, and in the spirit of making things for myself, I’ve made a wall calendar for myself to use that celebrates old video game consoles.  This one is the sequel to last years calendar that I made, and it features twelve lesser-known and less popular consoles.  Give it a download if […]

LSD: Dream Emulator

That LSD stands for Lovely Sweet Dream, don’t you know.  Or one of many other things like in Limbo the Silent Dream, in Life the Sensuous Dream, in Logic the Symbolic Dream, in Leisure the Sonorous Dream, in Laughter the Spiritual Dream, in Lunacy the Savage Dream, in Linking the Sapient Dream, or one of […]

S.A.S.S. Renegades – Writer’s Commentary

“S.A.S.S. Renegades” is my latest commissioned comic, and the sequel to “Shemale Android Sex Sirens“.  Along with my comic “Sexdroids in Space“, it is the comic story of which I am most proud. I hadn’t originally intended to make a sequel to S.A.S.S.  Before I posted that comic, I contacted the lovely Sarina Valentina, who […]

Shemale Android Sex Sirens – Writer’s Commentary

S.A.S.S. is a beautiful thing.  Spoilers will be plentiful, so if you have never read the comic, I suggest you do that first.  This third major comic of mine was a diversion for me, both in the kinky sense of the word and in another.  First of all, it was the first comic I had […]

Future F.A.I.T. – Writer’s Commentary

Comic number four that I commissioned was Future F.A.I.T.  It was always meant to be the first in a series of comics, but I have yet to commission the next part.  Future F.A.I.T. is a light-hearted and (hopefully) funny homage to and parody of classic SciFi tropes and settings, and it stars the lovely Kiwi […]

The Genesis 2014 Remikeifications

“Can’t I just call it ‘audio restorations’ or something sane?” you’re probably wondering.  Why not be megalomaniacal about it?  I am quite awesome at it.  And one day – one day – I shall have me a tropical volcanic island lair/headquarters with the volcanic mountain carved into the shape of my head.  One day. But […]

Video Carnage 36 – The Checkered Flag

My Video Carnage reviews have all wrapped up, and I’ve done the circuit from console to console, all the way from the lowly Odyssey to the Xbox.  I’ve stopped in with some computers along the way to check out the driving there,and all told, I reviewed 99 games for 33 systems.  Now it’s time to […]

Video Carnage 35 – Road Rash (Part 2)

I’m back with the second half of my Road Rash series reviews.  The first five games I reviewed can be found here. Road Rash 3D (1998) This was the second Road Rash title I ever played, and it was one of the first games I bought when I first bought my PlayStation 2. In fact, […]

The remikeification of Genesis shall commence…

Well, I’ve plowed my way through all of those 2007 remixed Genesis albums I talked about a while ago.  If you don’t know what I mean when I talk about Mikeification, read that post.  It’s audio editing.  Do I sense?  Not mind. Now that I’ve actually listened to all those albums in their remixed form, […]

The TurboGrafx-CD

Back in 1988, NEC released the world’s first disc-based video game system in the form of an addon for their PC Engine console.  This was in Japan, where gamers got the new tech first in those days.  The CD-ROM² added some extra power to the base console, and game studios took advantage of this to […]
