How does samus' suit even work?? From the waist down it's plausible but the chest & shoulders make no sense... Does she dislocate both her shoulder sockets? Her shoulders are not possible to be that fucking broad.

>>17287779
technically she's able to convert her mass into energy which is how the morph ball works
but i think the power suit is just really fucking padded and like 8 feet tall so she's between any of the joints

They have never tried to portray the suit in a way that makes sense. Just think of it as a Power Rangers thing. Using the suit also alters her body.

not in game , i think by the little pictures from taht book that i managed to see online , they considered at one point re-do raidens body after every boss was beated, to fit better the new power ( think megaman but switching his whole body) because theres one that has a whole monsoon visor theme and the other could fit sundowner extra armor motif .

Also excelsior gear was supposed to turn into some humongous plane with a railgun sticking out

Look at how cosplayers do it. The shoulders are an illusion: they're rooted where her's are and the inner torso and whole shoulder housing is segmented to deform around her.

A neutral stance in the suit is shoulders out - a jogger's stance, with lots of potential energy up in the shoulders ready to go immediately.

The shoulders of the suit have no relation to her's and contain some kind of system.

Beyond that, she's a natural contortionist.

A lot of theories go its some kind of meditation, where she turns into some kind of energy and the suit folds in on itself. Chozo weaponary supposedly requires some insane power inputs and the morph-ball sits somewhere on the same order of magnitude.

I would imagine the suit is based on a stock design which has a storage form which is highly compact, and she's simply returning to it by removing herself from most of the suit.

So no, it doesn't work like this. The suit's proportions are an illusion and the placement of excess elements and forms is to make room for the elements which are driving the joints which sit on top and away from her native proportions -- not radically distorting them.

Personally, the most interesting armour are those which aren't quite power-armour like Iron Man and aren't quite mecha, with a very strange middle-place half-way between them.

You almost never see them in media because actually making them work is really tricky even though they line up better with mechanical engineering.

Is it ever stated if Samus' suit is custom made, or just a standard chozo battlesuit? Because the Chozo look like like the suit
>>
>>17295877
This art takes liberties with the official design. Whether it be prime 1,2, 3 or Other M the proportions stay the same. The Prime 2 zero suit Samus has the issue where iff you try to fit her inside the suit certain parts like the helmet and waist are too small to fit her inside.

>>17295880
The way Other M depicts it nobody is assuming she is moving her own body inside the suit joints. She would give her exceedingly poor articulation. It is easy to assume that the suit and morphball are the same and function more as a second body.

If you go by Zero Mission, it's ancient tech that adapted itself to her physiology and has been further heavily modified.
>>
>>17295933
It's custom made in the sense it was adapted for her. The Chozo are twice the size of a human, that alone would make her unable to use a standard one.

I for one think MD Geist kicks ass. It's hyper violent, nihilistic, and Geist just wants to watch the world burn.

I don't know why it has such a bad reputation.

I've literally heard people say "It's too violent, it doesn't go anywhere, it's pointless." I think these people missed the point.

It is debatably the worst /m/ anime to come out this decade. Imagine if the Tekkan movie was stretched out into a two courses with Eiken levels of fanservice and cheapness on the level of Vampire Holmes. You can talk about a lot of other /m/ garbage from this decade casually, not that.

Mediocre. It follows a case of the week formula for a good chunk of the series with some good episodes and some bad ones. The buddy cop dynamic was predictable but comfy (by the book cop, hot blooded cop) with a good secondary cast but season 2 broke that dynamic and suffered because of it (by the book cop retires, most of the new secondary cast may as well not have been there at all).

it's contentious because the devs are shitters and thought they were making a roguelike. every mission rushes you and is fairly random so you'll suffer unavoidable losses regularly

First rule of XCom in any incarnation is to never get too attached to what you've got.

Even with the change to a more board-game methodology of rng rolls, you're playing a franchise where you need to know when you're going to have to cut your losses and turn tail.

That guy can draw good ships and what not but he cannot do armor

That's a mech

Pardon my ignorance, but what is that? I think that's the double-headed aquila of the Imperium, and I think I see the Ultramarines symbol there, but it sure doesn't look like typical Space Marine armor.

Dagwon
Chouja Reideen
The Soultaker
Generator Gawl
Majin Bone
Figure 17
Earth Defense Family
Tiger and Bunny
Borgman
Zillion

Some of these might err closer to nip super hero show than say Starship Troopers (which alo has an OVA)

Fuck, I can't believe I forgot about Strait Jacket.
Also, I can't believe I can't find a decent picture of any armor from the OVA.

pardon the instrusion , but given the shorter arms and lack of fuckhuge thrusters and intakes , i think its the 40k-ified desing of the prototype spartan suit from one of those halo animations ( yes , its the one thats halfway madox halfway starship trooper ova desing)
