I love what assassin's creed usually does with games set in Europe and the americas, but asia would be a nice change of pace. I mean, we got litterally one game in asia (not counting chronicles) and that game came out 14 years ago. Asia has so much history, and I've heard ubisoft talk about how there running out of ideas. Why not go to golden age india? Or the golden age of china? Or a game set in ancient persia where you help darius? There's so many possibilities. There would be much more exotic locations we could get. What do you guys think?
So for the last 8.5 years, I had a prebuilt which had the following specs: i7 3770 3.4Ghz 4c8t GT 630 2gb 192 cores 875mhz (codename GK107) 4x4gb DDR3 1600mhz 2TB HDD 150gb SSD
A bit of background knowledge: A lot of games like Sniper Elite 4, Fallout 4, Wolfenstein the new order, The Outer Worlds, Farcry series, crysis 3,I usually get 23 fps to 27fps (or 12 to 17 depending on the map etc) and older games, I get better fps like fallout 3, fallout new vegas, crysis 2, etc. I usually tweak settings from nvidia control panel to ini settings to get at least 30 fps.
During the delivery, I was super nervous and all but when it finally reached my country, I was very happy! It felt like Im super close to getting my hands on it! When I received it, I went back home, unpacked it, and behold, wrapped so neatly! I was worried because there was a rockstar cyberpunk soda can wrapped inside the parcel too. And I didnt know how USPS would handle it too. But they did an awesome job!!
I had to a buy a new PSU too, so I bought a Seasonic Focus GX-750, thermal grizzly kryonaut 1ml and compressed air duster
Putting it together: I decided to swap parts and clean the fans as well as changing the thermal paste. The cooler fans were the intel push pin fans types, so I understand why everyone hates it now. When swapping PSU, my case is old so I dont have any area to organize wiring. Sad times. Switched out the gpu. But theres a problem, computer couldn’t boot up. DRAM_LED was on and none of my IO ports were receiving signals. (My mouse and keyboard (used mobo io usb port) has led, ethernet connected but no light) Single abnormal long beep when shutting down. Everyone had no clue online. Websites were giving me combo beeps.
Well I took pretty much the whole day cuz I dont like rushing but I took my own time but legs are cramp af since I sat on the floor for like 8 hrs so by the time it came to debugging, it was night time. The next day I had a dream thinking it would turn on but no :( my thumbs were bruising cuz I was trying to re-fit the ram into the slots and because they had no heatsink, its just a thin pcb which makes pushing it a pain. They were not fitted correctly. But that still didnt allow my computer to boot up. Asked a particular online friend, he told me from the abnormal shutdown beep was a ram issue. He told me something about cmos and ram being related to why it wont boot. Also I didnt know I have 12 missing components or so on my mobo (solder points there and dr... keep reading on reddit ➡
I always see stuff and history about the Mongols, the Japanese and the Chinese Empires. But I wonder if apart from those 3, any countries further down South, in the SEA region ever had Empires? And successful conquests of other territories.
It's everywhere. As a Kashmiri, I have seen truck drivers, primary/high school teachers, government officials, business men, students, restaurant owners i.e. literally people from alll types of social classes watch Ertugrul show. Literally everywhere, people keep talking about it, especially during the curfew times, when there was no internet, everyone used tk watch it and they still do. Infact, from very credible sources, I have even heard from extremely credible sources that in a coaching centre which prepares students for competitive exams. An IITIAN Muslim Teacher from Delhi had The Ertugrul Ghazi theme song as his ringtone on his iPhone. "IIT" is the most prestigious engineering institute in India. I'm 100% sure even your professors of maths, physics, chemistry can't score 50% in the JEE ADVANCED paper on short notice.( an exam through which one qualifies for admission to IIT)
The only reason I'm mentioning this IIT is because for you people to realise that not only the "uneducated irrational radical Islamists" watch this show. Nothing else!
So I was adopted from Korea when I was 4 months old and grew up in very suburb Midwest. My second language is Spanish and if I say boat you better believe it sounds like I put an extra ‘a’ in there.
My question comes from wanting to travel to Asia. I’ve heard wonderful things about all of it and seen plenty on social and heard it’s relatively cheap to travel around most areas. I would love to try all the food and definitely visit my home country at some point. Would love to backpack or buy a moped and road trip as much as I could. Vietnam and Japan look incredible for that. :)
I’m nervous about being an Asian that won’t speak or even slightly understand the languages. I don’t want to appear rude by not speaking a language I feel like they may assume I know.
Curious if anyone else has this particular experience or any insight on travel in Asia. Islands and Korea mostly. TIA!
###The Ghosts of Southeast Asia
Staff Sergeant Gary Lam hanged himself from the 4th floor window of St. Ogilvie General on April 15th, 2011. It took EMTs six minutes to break through the door he’d jammed shut and cut him down. By then, he’d shorn off six out of eight fingernails digging bloody furrows into his neck, and his face had swollen to the tender consistency and color of an overripe grape. This was not to mention his tongue- thrust out and nearly severed by an involuntarily clenching jaw, or the stains slicking the bottom half of his hospital gown. You didn’t need a medical license to know to start unrolling the body bag.
Six minutes is eternity to an asphyxiating man, but during that time the rapidly growing crowd in the parking lot was treated to a second horrifying spectacle. As Gary Lam listed to and fro in the wind, a woman, a nurse perhaps, was trying and failing to pull him back into the room. Of course, the only thing she thought to pull on was the rope itself, an act that served little but to jerk and hitch the man like some kind of macabre puppet.
In order to truly get Southeast Asian horror, if you’re not already from there, you need to understand that we see our countries very differently from the way you do.
The common perception can be found splashed across countless vlogs and perfectly curated social media pages. Pristine beaches, charming street vendors, picture perfect weather, often shared by college graduates intent on “finding themselves” on a gap year.
Not quite my experience.
See, those of us who grew up here don’t remember frolicking on the beach or going on bar crawls with our attractive friends from the hostel. We remember the heat, for one. Oppressive, ever-present, and coupled with a thick, cloying humidity that sears your eyes and smothers any semblance of rational thought. We also remember old cautionary tales of horrors that follow you home because of a poorly timed, poorly phrased comment. Things that show up not on your doorstep but on your ceiling. Things that grab your hand as you reach for a light switch, or your ankles when you’re swimming alone. Things that, as the rainforests were replaced by monoliths of glass and steel, weren’t intimidated in the slightest by the advent of modernity.
Maybe that’s why the only time I feel safe writing about this is from an apartment in Los Angeles, several continents away.... keep reading on reddit ➡
