ZZ had the best designs

Why would there be ground type variations of most Gryps era suits? The war was mostly fought in space, and even what fighting did take place on Earth between Karaba and the Titans often used transforming mobile suits because flight and mobility had become the new paradigm. What suits the Titans or Karaba fielded that weren't innately flight capable made heavy use of flight platforms because of it.
>those skirt guns
>some custom speciality hinged beam gun with moving parts.

I cringe because I just know that Neo Zeon won't be able to maintain and repair those custom weapons in a few years. I much rather they use standardized weapons so at least they can replace it. Just look at the Sleeves. Many of their suits don't launch with a full load out because they are broke. And when something is destroyed, they don't know have the power to replace it. That Zaku III lost in Unicorn can't be replaced or fixed. The Axis factory that built it is long gone.
Neo zeon wasn't interested in long term or dragged out conflict, they had limited manpower and production so they threw everything into high performance designs to blitz the EF with and try to overwhelm them to make up for their much smaller numbers of MS. And it almost worked until they went full retard and started an internal conflict over who should lead Neo Zeon.

What that big shoulder do

Since it's (allegedly) going to deviate even more from the novel than the first one did, what do you expect from Hathaway's Flash's sequel?

F-50D Guntank seems very plausible in UC105, considering that it's already surplus material during F91's period.
I actually really loved this movie.

I'm new to Gundam in general, so my opinion may differ a lot from those of you that have been in this journey for so long, but bear with me.

It's pretty interesting watching the narrative trough the eco-terrorist point of view. Hathaway isn't the hero he believes himself to be and this just makes the story more interesting.

Kenneth, is also very interesting because even tough he is in the side of law, he fights dirty, and isn't afraid of doing morally bad things to get the job done. His soldiers shot at a city, probably killing a lot of people in the process to get a single terrorist falling from the sky... not to mention the torture and hostage situation.

I really like this antagonism between Kenneth and Hathaway.

And them there is Gigi... i really don't know what the fuck she is supposed to be. My only take is that she is there to remind Noa about Quess, and how she moves on as soon as she see the older more mature / secure man. So she ended up being a narrative tool to keep Hathaway in his path.

There are some interesting scenes, showing the corrupt system and the socialite life style that we get the knowledge from her too.

Xi has become my favorite gundam design, the mobile suits design in general are insanely good in this movie.

Part 2 is unfortunately very light in mecha combat. I doubt it would be more than the first one, and that one's already lacking in that department.
It's already been confirmed they're making some changes and adding more action.

/m/ still hates Try, IBO, Divers and ReRise so no

Re:Rise wasn't hated when it aired, and is still pretty well liked in my experience and there's definitely been a turn around on IBO even if I still don't think it's a good show personally. Try and Divers are the only ones on that list I'd agree on, and neither are even mainline shows anyway as well as both being less hated and more just not cared about because they were boring.

Which Gears can handle spicy food the best. We know Maria can't handle HOT food so I bet really spicy stuff would really hurt her tongue. And I know what you're think. You're thinking "Well I bet Biki could." And I'd agree you're right but I also think it's less Biki would handle it well and more that she just shovels her food down without ever tasting it. I bet Tsubasa could probably handle wasabi well. Shirabe could be a wild card being a little chef but I bet she also has a sensitive sense of taste. One time I took was over my brother's and we had Chinese food and I got Szechuan style and while I wasn't looking my niece my niece sneaked a bit off my plate and it mad her cry. It was really cute.

As someone with around 2k hours in Overwatch, Evo is far and away the better game in every aspect.
The problem is, like the other anon said, they released it right before Blizzard released a balance patch they pretended was a new game. Plus, character designs are key when it comes to cultivating a large player base, and Overwatch did that in spades with its roster featuring at least one character that appealed to nearly everyone. A game where everyone is a big genderless robot lacks that same kind of appeal so your player base is automatically narrowed down to people who like Gundam and people who play any new shooter and stuck around because they liked the mechanics.

>>21462860 (OP)
Mobile Suits were first developed as a new sort of space fighter which could take advantage of AMBAC. AMBAC is a sort of system of movement in space where you use physical motion to shift your position as opposed to thrusters. It doesn't look nor work like anything in Gundam in real life, but basically, the fact that a Mobile Suit has limbs makes it considerably more maneuverable than a conventional Gundam space fighter while also using less propellant. They proved to be effective in space, but on the ground further development (see Gouf, Dom, Gouf Flight Type, etc.) was required to turn them into truly potent weapons. Since they were so adaptable, they became more and more common. Mobile Suits effectively combined maneuverability and speed, durability, endurance, and striking power into one package where conventional machines did not.

It is worth noting that Mobile Suits never actually completely replaced things like fighter aircraft or fighting ground vehicles, and they also are not the be-all-end-all, which is why Mobile Armors exist. Machines like the G-Armor, Core Booster, Motorad machines, etc. all remained potent against Mobile Suits, but MS took the role of mainstay weaponry.

I'd argue that Duker Iq's motorbike machines like the Kou and Ohtu were very effective against MS. During the One Year War, additionally, aircraft were something of a notable problem for Mobile Suits that weren't the Gundam.

That's the Crabman, it's explicitly a military prototype. Mobile workers were never really mining machines. In one source it is noted that Zeon deliberately and falsely advertised their early MS prototypes as civilian labor machines, but in reality they had been built to be combat vehicles from the outset. Pic related is not actually a Crabman.
>What's the explanation for
What's the explanation for you?
space combat plus the event of newtypes
legs are just just articulate thrusters
arms and waist give it more maneuverability in a 360 degree arena allowing it to require and aim at multiple targets without being the size of a cruiser or being a death trap like a ww2 gunship for swiveling turrets. This also leads into the newtypes as earlier on the idea of these super human pilots being able to effectively use the suits as a second body really solidified the use of the MS even as the concept of using newtypes for war faded

it's also why Karaba's z+ line was very successful. They're both your air superiority as jets and land superiority rolled into one

the 18-20 metre size is ridiculous yes even F91 and Victory are ridiculous
also also they're very modular and dynamic with what weaponry they can use which is a huge deal as melee combat somehow becomes a thing again
