  2. For ISB, 5+ years is a little on the higher side. 2-3 is golden. Trick is to have the right kind of experience before getting into ISB. Its a college for people who know exactly where they want to go, what kind of transition they want to do. For those people its the highest ROI program, for people who dont know what they really want to do going forward, and are just doing an MBA to "improve the their job profile" it more than often doesnt give them the kind of return that is possible with an ISB MBA. Reason: it is a one year, post experience program. You dont get a chance to do any internships, during placements companies shortlist on the basis of your GPA (only some) and most shortlist on the basis of your prior experience. Placements happen after 4 terms. The first 4 terms are so hectic that you are just struggling to maintain a good GPA, where will you get the time to think about a different career. Contrast this with someone who has prior experience as an SDE and wants to transition to PM, or someone with IB or consulting experience, who wants to transition to a better IB or MBB consulting, they will know exactly what to do, exactly what to study and exactly how to prepare for interviews. Those are the people who get the highest ROI year after year. Also ISB is the best bschool in India for consulting, tech jobs, general management jobs, for finance you are better off with IIM ABC, or even SP jain (since its in Mumbai) or MDI ( good fin placements) So as someone who has gone through all this, my advice is think more about what you want to do and do you even need an MBA to do it (Mostly, increasingly, the answer is no), and if yes, then how exactly will that MBA help you. Once you have answered that question, everything else becomes clear.
  3. Yeah its till the case in most companies, however in tech jobs in bangalore, the culture is changing. Asking past CTC itself is frowned upon in some startups, asking for payslips is becoming quite rare. In fact a lot of really confident candidates dont even disclose their own number when negotiating pay, they wait for the company to give a number or force them to give out their budget for the role, so as to not settle on a number which is lower than what they could get. Its all about leverage
  4. I work as a Product Manager in a game dev studio. But we also have Game Designers, UI/UX designers (Gaming specific). I can connect you to product designers and UI/UX people in non gaming settings as well, DM me what youre looking for exactly.
  5. Just moved bangalore to a new job, trying to meet new people. Anybody up for an IVG meet up in bangalore this weekend?
  6. Just got this game a couple of days back, it is honestly one of the best games I have ever played. Cant wait to get some more free time and really get into it.
  7. Some of them Actually are fairly useless. I saw one fan which was pushing air the wrong way. TBH you dont really need those if your PS5 is placed in a well ventilated area, and the cooling system vents are clean. Better to spend time cleaning the console from the inside than buying a fan. Edit: Just saw that you are are asking for PS4 instead of PS5. But I guess the same thing applies, additionally for PS4 people have had good results by cleaning + replacing thermal paste.
  8. I have directly connected to Inverter powered board, if you have a Pure sine wave inverted you dont need a UPS.
  9. EA Family Bundle available at 90% off for Rs 174. Includes Need For Speed Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare 2 Unravel. Just bought it. Seems like a good deal.
  10. I think a lot of people who have issues with asking sony to give away flagship first party games as day 1 on service, have these issues not because they see it as a threat to sony, but because they see it as a threat to future of single player games. Profit incentive is what keeps studios invested in making these games, if they become unprofitable to develop, the industry will naturally get tilted towards service based games, that can turn a better profit. Sure you can argue that somebody else will develop as long as there is demand, but the problem is that this capacity exists as an ecosystem, it doesnt come up in a jiffy. if a sufficient dent is made in the profitability of single player games, then there is a good chance there would be a very long gap before games of such quality come out again.. if ever. For me at least its not at all a MS vs Sony thing, but about the viability of single player games which I have always enjoyed.
  11. Bros I need some help are there any mobile gamers here that play online mobile shooters like PUBG , garena, COD etc. If you do, I need to have a quick chat with you for a project that I am working on. Will take about 20 mins of you time. Especially looking to speak to people who have played PUBG New state as well. If I can post this in another thread as well for visibility, please let me know.

  13. but i play on a 32 inch LCD monitor, rather than a TV maybe that is the difference. And I just use the UPS/inverter to power down safely rather than booting up from scratch, even though I have been able to do that as well.
  14. My 1100VA works just fine, even when a few lights, fans, my screen and several plugpoints are active, it manages to keep the PS5 running without turning off in case of a power cut. Its a luminous pure sinewave inverter (luminous Eco watt UPS 1050/12v), with amaron tall tubular battery. Can try to find box and look up further specs if someone needs it.
  15. I think this video is overly critical. Takes a few examples from here and there to try and make it into something bigger. Typical YouTube click bait. Of course culture fit and bureaucracy are a big change for any new studio joining Microsoft, but I think they'll still be able to pull through and deliver good stuff eventually. What I DON'T understand however is how the f**k did people go gaga over GP before these major acquisitions happened.
