      I haven’t looked forward to a games in more than a decade. Every game has to convince me to be shit. Sometimes they succeed.

        I played maybe 5 modern games since I build my PC. But I’m the kind of guy who sinks hundreds of hours into a game when I really like it.

    I recommend bookmarking this Japanese news site called Gigazine and looking up the tag Gastronomic Adventure where you will find articles written by a Japanese reporter about nearly every seasonal or limited time food and drink in Japan. The articles are all in English as well. This saves you the time in searching for new foods to try in Japan as well as ideas for souvenirs to bring home.

    • >1660 TI
      My dream card. 1660 Super was better priced. I had a chance to buy one for $280 at the start of this year, but bought a GTX 1050 TI for $100 instead.
      I regret it a bit. But both are going for stupid prices these days.

        should really sell the whole lot and get a 3080 ti to pair with my 3700x.

  2. Fast enough for my needs, not fast enough for my wants. But I’ve conquered the silly urge of upgrading for the sake of upgrading.

    Amusing side note: This build cost me ~500 bucks 2 years ago, today I could sell it for almost double the price.

  3. I spent years waiting for Bannerlord to only find out I can barely run it at 15fps on the lowest settings, while it also used 100% of my RAM, CPU, and GPU. I’m too much of a lazy shit to upgrade though

        Doesn’t matter. I have no idea when borders will re-open, and things will go back to normal. I’m just planning for that day.

            It’s a mandatory 2-week quarantine

            Why isn’t Ganker planning their japan trip?

            I was supposed to fly to Japan on 15th March 2020. As you can imagine, it didn’t fly so well.

          • Did you know that in Japan, there are many kinds of energy drinks? People in Japan drink energy drinks in various situations from overcoming poor physical conditions to defeating sleepiness

            Most energy drinks sold in Japan are categorized/classified as Quasi-Drugs or Medicine according to Japanese regulations which makes them vastly different from soft drinks such as Monster Energy and Red Bull. You will also notice that most Japanese energy drinks are packaged in brown bottles to protect the contents against UV ray damage.

            Lipovitan and Oronamin C are known as Japan’s oldest energy drinks and the two could be considered as the world’s first modern energy drinks long before Red Bull emerged onto the scene!

            https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lipovitan

            https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oronamin_C

          • Basically, if you see a brown bottle in the soft drink section of a Japanese grocery store, there is a good chance you are looking at a Japanese energy drink. Again, brown bottles protect against any UV ray damage.

        I assume you’ve been saving money since then for your next trip?

            In that case, I reccomend not using hotels, and finding a place on Airbnb.
            You can get away with no English in Tokyo. Osaka is a discount Tokyo, with less english (rural Japan has no english), and better food. It’s known as the kitchen of Japan for a reason.
