What is /m/'s opinion on Power Armor? (Also is power armor /m/? I imagine it is but I could be very wrong)

What are some good series that feature them?

There's some timing trickery going on here. The chest, head, and boots don't equip in sequence, they do all at once, so you could cut the time by 2/3s.

>Also is power armor /m/
Yes. Most people on /m/ seem to think so. Unless it's power armor from a toku show, than it's not /m/ for some reason I don't understand.

Probably ironman, or Tribes power armor.

>What are some good series that feature them?
Bubblegum Crisis.

The line between what is Mechanical, Magical, or Biological power armor is sometimes very thin, and a lot of the time arguments could be made for either.

This is why a of Toku and "Magical Girl wearing armor" series get a pass a lot of the time (also see things similar to Guyver, though they are more rare).

>What is your favorite power armor?

Definitely Guyver... But if that doesn't count... Tekkaman. (And they aren't even mechanical save for the Sol Tekkaman armors)

>What are some good series that feature them?
Guyver, Tekkaman Blade, Bubblegum Crisis...

That's what I thought. I was thinking maybe it leaned towards the power side because of its durability but it's not like he exhibited any other abilities.

One of my favorite power armor designs is probably the one from the completely mediocre and dated Starship Troopers OVA. Series is pretty forgettable, but if there's one thing it did well was show off the MI's fighting suits.

For some good series that would feature power armor, I'd go for Tekkaman Blade or Fallout. I'd also recommend Halo or Warhammer 40k, but I'd say those two are highly debated about being "good" (though I'd admit to liking both).
As for my favorite power armor I'd like to say the Advanced Power Armor Mk.II, but the Mjolnir Mk.VI just has too large a hold on my heart to give the spot to anything else.

I've dreamed of a futuristic mecha Great War pastiche.
devices called A4s(Advanced automated Anti-aircraft) change modern war forever by creating 100kilometer no fly spheres where any non-friendly unit is immediately shot down.
To cross this seemingly endless No Man's Land, power armors equipped with thrusters capable of speeds in excess of mach 6 fly NoE across the flattened terrain, where radar can't detect them, into the enemy lines to destroy or disable their A4s.

Not just anyone can operate the boost units though, as the slightest mistake could leave you unconscious due to the shear g-forces, leading to your subsequent death.
Pilots are cocky hotshots who take on seemingly impossible missions and live straddling the gap between Life and Death.

Ironman's armor is the only thing that comes to mind. Or Lex Luthor's suit.

Maybe the technology in the Halo setting (Forerunner grade).

Power armor is fuckin sick.

Favorite is probably the T-51b from fallout as I'm a sucker for retro futuristic stuff. Honestly I like just about all the fallout power armor. The old APA is a close second.

Fallout 2 enclave power armor looks fine, but when they modeled it in 3D for New Vegas you ended up looking like a beetle fucked a linebacker.

Unf, the new T-51 looks amazing.

>>13471256
I see power armour with a jetpack and all I get are terrible Robocop 3 flashbacks.
>>
>>13471518
It's not really a jetpack. More like a jump a bit higher and land a bit slower pack.

>>13471256

Hell yes. All I need is the ability to join the Brotherhood and get onto their ship in 4 and then I can deploy from their ship Gundam style.

Not sure if Kazuma's final form in s-CRY-ed would count as power armor, but I always thought it was the hypest

Kato and Miyatake's designs for the Japanese edition of Starship Troopers are a seminal part of early Otaku culture. They put Studio Nue on the map and basically started the "real robot" trend in anime. Heck, Anno got his start doing fan animation of the damn thing.

>>13471748
I'm not disputing the OVA's impact, but wasn't that trend already going pretty strong by the time it came out in 1988?

Halo 4 and 5 have some pretty cool armour, although it's often less armour due to increased reliance on shields.

A Tekkaman could probably take her. Especially Blade. But Tekkamen are their own type of bullshit, as well.
>>
>>13472205
How do the Tekkaman Blade 2 guys compare to D-Boy in the power level department?
>>
>>13472445
I'm pretty sure Blade is stronger than all of them.
>>
>>13471405
I agree, I think Bethesda decided to be lazy and used the same skeleton at the T-51b power armor so it fucked up its proportions.
>>
>>13472445

Dead actually defeated him and is implied to be as powerful. Hiver is potentially more powerful but lacks control. The other two are weaker, about the level of Lance or Sword, and Aki is weaker than all of them.

But it's also suggested Blade is weaker having lost Blaster mode and some other power in exchange for more stable powers.
