Playing GTA 3 the other day, and a Pogo the Monkey commercial came on the radio.

Near the end of the ad: "Female Announcer: And help Pogo to his final mission, to storm the White House with his friends and become president of the United States."

Simpsons ain't the only precognitive series...

I've gotten into so many new content creators thanks to Among Us. DumbDog, 5up, stevesuptic, koji, Wolfabelle, and a few others. I can only stand to play that game when I have a bunch of friends on it too, but man the streams and YouTube content that's been coming out for it is amazing.

@Tetra_Vega

Covid cases just started spiking here in New Brunswick after being safe most of the year. I haven't been sick since last November, odd because I usually get sick every few months.

No personal people losses, but I have lost the majority of my works since the image hosting site TinyPic has been permanently shutdown by the Covid crisis economic strain. I lost the original files earlier in the year when my father sent his computer to get fixed. Wasted money on a memory stick for nothing, fuckin deleted my damn files before I could use it! just bought myself a new computer to recollect my stuff, and for what, shits gone off the web too.

I'M SO FUCKING PISSED, but I know other people have lost far more important things...

Stay safe.

I wanted to put together a PC in Jan/Feb 2021 (after more than 20 years!) but AMD just went overboard with their new Ryzen CPU prices and GPU prices are now equal to a 5-year-old car so I decided to dust off games and now I'm replaying american Assassin's Creed on my 7-year-old laptop.

AC3 - ah, Haytham... I'm a sucker for a good anti-hero. He should have gotten his own game. And the voice actor would be a good replacement for Kain in LoK series (should Simon Tepleman ever abanon the role). Connor is boring but fortunately missions in the Homestead make the game for me. Too bad you can not replay them. I so loved chasing pigs in this pretty, white Ezio outfit (would be hilarious if you could fall into the mud and get it dirty!). I'm also one of the few people who like Charles Lee... I just wish they woudn't destroy his character (he just switches his views 180 degrees somewhere in the middle of the game because the writers just had to make someone the villain... so badly executed).

AC:Rogue - my fav game. Though I remember Shay not being such a crybaby. But all in all I managed to completly destroy the economy of the game (this is what happens when you have hoarding habits and collect every bit of trash on the map in the beginning and are too OP for the main story XD). I also started to like George Monroe very much. Too bad he died.

AC4 - I remember abandoning the game somewhere in the middle as the main character was so boring and could not decide what he wants to do. I'll give this game a chance once I replace my HDD with SSD. Meybe I'll change my mind about it.

PS. do NOT install Win10 on HDD! I migrated from Win7 to 10 and it runs like a snail and everybody I asked said that it is a better and faster system. Yeah, right... if you have an SSD... liars!

I've never been into AC so I can only respond to the beginning and end of your post, but I've got Win10 running on a 5 year old desktop (one that was high end when I bought it, but has no SSD) and aside from some occasional boot hiccups I've found it to be pretty good. This is coming from someone who has usually disliked Windows and had a Mac for a long time before this PC. Could be because you have a laptop, but I really can't say for sure. I haven't looked at the new Ryzen stuff, are the prices really that outrageous?

@m0s3pH

As for CPU: I found the price of 3800x at $399 whereas it's current replacement 5800x is at $449 (I was eyeing 3700 more but there is no 5700 so you can not compare prices). And from what I remember progress is when you have more for less ar at least for the same price. Otherwise it's not progress. It's just more for more.

As for SSD: I don't have problems with booting, it's normal that when you have HDD you just have to wait. I had huge problems with windows opening (I had to wait longer than usual) or with such a trivial thing as picture viewing... 5-10sec to open the program is just too much. Maybe Win10 started as a lightweight OS for tablets and office PCs but now it's just an old hog. I replaced HDD with SSD and it works as it should. Maybe as you wrote, you did not have such problems because you bought a high end PC. I bought my laptop mid-range (I just went to the store and said: mister, will this laptop run Batman: Arkham City? Yes? Ok, I'm buying.) so after 7 years this thing is just old and outdated. But from my experience, Win10 is just good for new devices.
