Didn't want to selfishly put my request as OP, so here we go, as an example.

I once saw on YouTube some completely ridiculous DBZ Budokai Tenkaichi ripoff (a la supra mayro kratt for Mario Kart), the players were wildly teleporting around, clipping, exploding their geometries... It was almost impossible to see the action. It was exactly my funnybone and I wish I could at least see the YT video again.

I have a pretty terrible memory, but I've been on the search for a game from my childhood for almost 10 years now. Please just ignore this TBH there's no way anyone's ever going to know about this from my vague horrible recollections. I don't even remember it being particularly good, just not knowing what it was always hangs on my head and makes me search through threads like this.

It was on my Uncle's Sony Vaio in 2000ish but could have been from 95-99 too. There's a burly male protagonist, and it's a sort of action-collection type game from what I remember. There was either a candy or a paint type theme, with aliens or something as the enemies.

I'll try to meditate on it later for more potential descriptors, but thanks for reading my sloppy diarrhea of a post.

One of the best TPS I've ever played, I've been playing this in the last 10 years and this game never gets old. It's amazing all the different things you can do and the different game modes you can play. This game really needs more recognition.

Hideaki Itsuno’s secret project for Capcom is the sequel to the original Devil May Cry series, the 5th installment. Internally it appears to be called “Devil May Cry V” instead of using the standard numeric system of the previous games (think MGS1-4 to MGSV).

The game is slated to release some time in the fiscal calendar year of 2019. That means sometime between April 2018 and March 2019. Original plan was to release it in November 2018 but the date MIGHT have been pushed back to early 2019.
Originally DMCV was intended to be announced at PSX but after receiving feedback on their E3 press conference, Sony decided to scale back on PSX and instead scale up E3 2018. DMCV was an unfortunate casualty of this choice and thus it’s unlikely that DMCV gets officially revealed in 2017.
There will be a demo for the game sometime before release.
Game has been in development for 2 years as of today. When it will release it will have been in development for 3 years at least. That is actually the highest time a DMC game has been in full production for. Pre-production started as early as 2015 around the time that DMC4SE finished releasing. There have been no development hiccups and as stated, the development has in fact been progressing smoothly.
There is some form of Playstation exclusivity involved. Sony is paying for some of the funding for the game but the extent of it is not known. Could be completely PS4 exclusive, console exclusive or timed exclusive. If the game is announced publicly then it will be at a Sony event, which is why many people thought that it was going to be at PSX.

Trailer has been ready for a while now. The initial trailer is 1 minute 50 seconds long (they may add new cuts to trailer to make an extended version since some time has passed from when it was made). It is mostly focused on story, characters and cutscenes. A city like setting is shown in the trailer not that different from Fortuna city in DMC4.
The overall game is supposed to be “ambitious” for a DMC title with a broader appeal.
Longest cutscene runtime of any DMC game yet.

I just got out of the hospital with a spontaneous collapsed lung. I need some games to sink some time into while I recover for a week or two. A family member bought me a copy of Resident Evil VII, and it's alright. Not blowing me away or anything though.

I'd like a good RPG. Already played all the Souls games, Skyrim, and Dragon's Dogma. Anything else you'd recommend? Doesn't have to be RPG. Just anything that can act as a good time sink.

No PC, just PS4, PS3 and a Wii.

Grant Morrison got a collapsed lung while writing The Invisibles. He'd just had his expie in the comic, King Mob, get shot, so he decided he'd jinxed himself because he'd written the series as a chaos magic hypersigil to stimulate human evolution, so he spent the rest of the series writing King Mob on holiday, getting laid a lot, and he got better.

SC is F2P now; thanks, Blizzard.

>Excluding the campaigns, all of the game is free. Everyone gets Wings of Liberty, the first campaign, for free.

If you already own WoL, you get Heart of the Swarm. No free upgrades to the Legacy of the Void campaign, though.

All of the custom games, arcade, and multiplayer is free at the Legacy of the Void level. The only two catches are that ranked multiplayer is locked away until you get 10 "First Win of the Day"s and after that, you have it forever, and you can only level like 3 basic Coop Commanders to level 5 or whatever until you buy the commanders.

The only things you ever pay for are the campaigns if you want them and Coop Commander stuff.

Also Starcraft: Remastered version is $15, adds modern resolutions and shit, but if you want just original out of the box Brood War it's free ( https://us.shop.battle.net/en-us/product/starcraft )

I'm one of those who never played the campaign and only does 1v1. I got from bronze to gold just by scouting cheese and executing a build order correctly up to the 6 minute mark. It really is just getting the simple mechanics like not getting supply blocked and constantly building workers and units and using your mules, chronoboost / larva inject.

What drugs could enhance an immersive video game experience and what games do you think are most immersive to begin with?

This christmas I'm going to end up alone most of the time and I intend to see how I deep I can immersive myself in a couple of games. So far I got modded Skyrim, FNV, Batman Origins, Yakuza 5 and ACrigins (what's up with all the "Origins" lately...) on my list of games to try out next month.

When it comes to gaming I've only ever tried weed and alcohol. I can get pretty deep with the right dose of edibles and alcohol already though.
I'm also reading up on dissociatives and it seems Ketamine would be a good choice but I never did any so I can't say for sure. I haven't tripped in a decade or so but I'll try to combine things with a bit of LSD of psilocybin anyway.

Basically I'm looking for a warm, positive and immersive gaming experience.

go with mxe over ketamine if possible; a much longer experience.

amphetamines are still mostly king for many games but wouldnt call them immersive.

if do go deep enough into the /dis/ dont plan on story/reading games though as it becomes hard to focus on text, and i remember often finding myself in long deja-vu, daze-out episodes where my memory would blank every few seconds. But they are amazing at making activities such as staring at the ceiling (or videos etc) feel religious in experience. open atmospheres like skyrim would probably fit.

definitely dont recommend /psy/ and video games personally

Thanks, I got it to run but the FPS are atrocious. I'll tweak around a bit, maybe it's due to some of my settings.

I can't get my hands on any at the monent but honestly, since this'll be my first time with dissociatives, I'm happy with shorter trips. In regards to /psy/, I remember having an amazing time with FF8 many years ago. It probably all depends on your mood and setting but I think i got both covered for a nice vidya experience.

Anyway, I just got some LSD, Ketamine, BHO and Whiskey. I think I'm all set for now.

In Baldur's Gate 2:Throne of Bhaal you assign a junior party a mission, they are comically green and you're strong.
By that point in the game I'd almost single handedly killed the senior lord of hell azmodeus by ramming my holy sword up his ass at 100bpm and basically I was about 3 hours from ascending to godhood and these guys do the mission come back and try their luck with you. So the game takes over, you one shot the party and then they reload and give you the items you want and you give them their reward and they go on their way.

if I'm besieging an enemy often enemy armies will slide past mine and run around in my internal areas, is this bad or normal? I know that there is no front line like in HOI but it seems like a constant problem.

also its really hard too "catch" enemy armies it's like my army when ordered to their province will "slide" off of each other and I have the cat and mouse game going on, is any of that normal?

I'm playin as the Ottomans and there is a super alliance of the Mameluks, the two blue blobs in eastern Anitolia and Crimea and like 6 smaller states that buttfuck me everytime I try even a very limited modest war to erode their power, how do I beat these mega alliances?

Sounds like there is a coalition against you, otherwise i dont see how going to war with 1 country in antolia will result in a war with 8 powers.

In general as Ottomans you're going to get some great national missions to conquer parts of the world (greece/turkey/mumulaks) that'll give you a cause for war which will reduce the amount of 'piss off your neighbors' you generate and reduce the liklihood of a coalition like this.

For the most part, Ottomans should have an ok time with the mumulaks after the first war (once you establish yourself in turkey and/or greece), your troops are superior due to national ideas and events.

Is a coalition a set thing? because from what I'm seeing with 24+ hours of gameplay, is that they are in an alliance tangle (think WWI) I declare war on one then its allies get in then its allies allies get in and so on and so forth

>your troops are superior due to national ideas and events.
how do I raise my admin tech? its slow as hell but military tech has already progressed from 3 at the beginning to 5 now, and diplo has gone from 3 to 4

You're making the right call starting off as the Otto's, you're in a great position to take on anyone in every direction if you feel like it. One hint I have is making one of the Balkans states your vassal rather than straight annexing. I usually go for Serbia since they have the best military ideas. Use them to conquer the christian lands and then wait until you've got higher missionary strength to annex and convert them directly. Or keep them as your little christian dog on a leash. I'd also recommend doing this with the Georgians since they have that ridiculous coring cost increase in the caucus's.

In terms of breaking up the super alliance, you shouldn't have too hard a time. Maybe the mamelukes are allied to the two Anatolian states but are those states allied to each other? Even though the mameluke territories are what you want to conquer, it might work out better for you to declare war on one state that's ONLY ally is the mamelukes, meaning that they are the only ones who get dragged into war. Annex the shitty Anatolian state and if you've got high enough warscore to annul treaties with their ally's. Check the truce length though because you don't want your truce to run out after the annul treaties stops being effective. It also might backfire though because sometimes the mamelukes will give up on local ally's and end up entering an alliance with a rival, who will most likely be Spain or France or someone else equally likely to fuck your shit up.

Coalitions happen after you rack up too much aggressive expansion. You can play close to the bone with it though and as long as you keep it aggressive expansion (you can see it in the peace deals and there's also a map mode for It) 50 a coalition won't form. A coalition forming depends on loads of things, like culture group and religion. So you're gonna piss off all of christendom a lot more by chomping into Hungary and Austria than you will some islamic strips of land in the Mediterranean. Get on top of your lazy diplomats and have them improving relations in every state surrounding yours, because AE is affected by good/bad relations.

Pretty sure the game tells you when people are joining bec…

WW I-style alliance cascades aren't possible in EU4 as only the war leader can call in allies.
A single country can only have 1-2 major powers as allies at a time, which kind of limits the number of countries you get on one side of a regular war.
A sort of cascade can happen if a small country calls it's allies and then a much larger country into a war, who becomes the war leader and calls their own allies into the war.

Coalitions bypass this.
If you have high infamy, countries with interest in your containment (everyone around you) will join a coalition against you.
This will cause them all to automatically join any war between you and any member of the coalition.

Of course, neither of these mechanics stop a dozen countries from individually declaring war on you if they see an opportunity and you have core territory of theirs.
