I was saying to a mate the other day that quite a lot of films nowadays feature powered exoskeletons...

He didn’t think so, but Wikipedia says eighteen since the turn of the century.

Safe to say i was correct, as per.

It’s like I’ve always said “powered exoskeletons for all!”

I wonder if he’ll nail it again with one of his threads. That’ll be a true show of wisdom. Wanzer lucky break.

every other game in the mid-00s had a bulky space marine an a mech suit

Haven’t there been about 18 films featuring Iron Man alone?

Can’t believe how right I was about this.

quite a lot yes, but not nearly enough

fucking love a big metal lad with a plucky ‘pilot’ inside

Love the bit in Edge of Tomorrow where Big Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt are driving around in a Renault Espace whilst wearing exoskeletons

I like that tonal shift in Chappie where suddenly Hugh Jackman has one and it becomes preposterously violent.
