So, Chroma Squad updated a few weeks ago with a Director's Cut with some new stuff.

And now they've made a mission editor, allowing you to do your own missions! Will /m/ take advantage of this?

For those not in the know, Chroma Squad is a tactics RPG where you control a Sentai Team. It's pretty neat.

If she wasn't such a psycho, she'd be the best waifu in all of Gundam, by far. Such a killer body and face, with a cute voice.

After watching 0079, Zeta, 08th MS and now this, I have to ask. What is this strange Gundam tradition of having the worst girl be the main love interest that gets far too much screentime to be a bitch with, and will it stop before I've finished the entirety of UC Gundam?

What happened to good super sentai? I mean, I know it’s a franchise for kids and all but back in the day it wasn’t anywhere as lame or as outright gay as it is nowadays what happened? I can’t even think of kids liking this show much anymore.

I think its more impactful for the heroes to defeat the villains when the villains have their own humanity. Its what made the duels from the showa sentai so powerful.

Too much power and responsibility falling upon the red. IMO what they're trying to do is get the Reds back to the Jetman-era of where they were ABSOLUTELY the leader but they're failing to realize they're going completely overkill with it by making Kamen Rider-esque power ups,making non-red story arcs and their companions have nowhere near as much relevance to the main plot as the Reds and giving all that importance to a Red character who lacks both the right amount and the lesser amount of focus for them to convincingly grab the viewer.
Abaranger is a good example of this.

Almost halfway through Zeta and I don't think he's flown a single sortie so far without getting his wingman killed, losing in a fight with Camille AGAIN, losing a mobile suit or getting otherwise injured, crying, or some combination of the four. Will it ever get better for him? With the whole "blonde """rival"""" pilot" thing I thought they were trying to make him Camille's Char, but he's been so painfully powerless up until now.

So we've all realized after countless threads that he's a whiny man-child. So why is he so admired by everyone and viewed as a "cool/bad-ass" character?

>why is he so admired by everyone?
Because he's been around since the beginning and played a major role throughout to the point that his mask is as iconic as the gundam itself.

>and viewed as a "cool/bad-ass" character?
See above. Also because he's the series' "Darth Vader". The enigmatic bad guy whose true origins reveal more to him than just being a dude in a mask that is the go-to hench for the major leaders of the bad guy army. That being said only normies who never saw CCA or blind zeon fantards still see him as an edgy cool guy they wish they were.

Did Char deliberately plan for the Invasion of Jaburo to fail by attacking ahead of schedule or did he genuinely believe he could capture the base using the secret entrance and attacking early was the best course of action?

Jaburo falling would have decentralized the Federations efforts across the globe, along with crippling moral across the globe for the Earth Federation. The Federation would have most likely regrouped at Luna II to continue the war, but such a loss would have basically been a deathblow to the momentum the Federation gained at Odessa.

As for the Zabi's, winning the war over the Federation would have only pushed for the inevitable civil war between the Zabi family.

Zeon would have most likely broke into two [possibly three] factions in such an event.

Gihrens Loyalist and the nationalist party on Side 3.
Kycillia's loyalist functioning out of Granada.
Chars Neo Zeon movement which would most likely have been incubated from Kycillia's forces on Granada and the Flannagan institute.
>>
>>16189979
Doesn't one of the Gihrens Greed games have a Garmas Zeon, with Garma, Dozle, and Ral amongst others?
>>
>>16190090

Blood of Zeon

Principality of Zeon [Gihren]
Legitimate Zeon [Kycillia]
New Life Zeon [Garma]
Neo Zeon [Casval]

Dozle does not create his own faction, rather he demotes himself down a rank following promoting Garma to Vice Admiral so he can serve as Garma's second in command.

In the PS2 version, you can make anyone your leader.

Shin Gihrens has a path where Dozle can become Zeon's leader, though he is more or less a puppet for Kycillia.
