I’ve reached a 97% game completion rate for Assassin’s Creed: Origins. All that’s left are the War Elephant arenas and the Hippodrome races. I don’t want to bother with those, so I can pretty much say that I’ve finished playing the game after 80 hours. I’ll be giving my thoughts on it as well as sharing a few images I’ve taken using the game’s built in photo mode.Continue reading “Laro: Assassin’s Creed: Origins Review”
Isip: Hyori’s Homestay and the Curation of Guests
I’ve been riding the Hallyu wave over this quarantine period and aside from binge-watching K-pop variety shows, I was fortunate to watch a very wholesome show called “Hyori’s Homestay” aka “Hyori’s Bed and Breakfast.” After months of finishing it, there is something about the show that I just can’t help but write about.Continue reading “Isip: Hyori’s Homestay and the Curation of Guests”
Laro: Mad Max Game Review
This is my first blog post dedicated to an entire game, but only because I feel that it deserves it. Also, this was supposed to be a video, but my lazy ass can’t be bothered to record a voiceover for my gameplay footage. And finally, I’m not satisfied with my lapel mic’s quality, so here’re some words about the 2015 Mad Max game instead.Continue reading “Laro: Mad Max Game Review”
Basa: Book Review February 2020
It’s the second month of 2020 and thankfully, I’m still continuing the habit of reading e-books and manga. I was able to finish a fewer number of books this month, but I really enjoyed most of the entries here as they are related to my running hobby. It’s always easier to read something if it’s related to a topic you like.
Ever since coming back to the Philippines with a couple of RG Gunpla kits from Japan, I’ve been hooked on these toys. That was around three weeks ago and at the time of this writing, I have averaged two Gunpla kits a week. I have spent the weekends indoors and have ignored the call of the mountains for consecutive weeks already. Not that I’m complaining, but it’s way different from the usual hobbies you see posted here.
Baliktanaw: Japan 2019
Going to Japan was a life changing experience. Coming from a sinking, third world country like the Philippines, it was a feast for my eyes to see how efficient everything could be. And although I know that it’s not all butterflies and rainbows over there, it’s now one of my favorite places to visit. In my post-Japan daily life, I often find myself remembering all the things I experienced and that gives me that extra push to work a little bit harder so I can save up for another visit.
In the meantime, I might as well write a blog about my first visit to the Land of the Rising Sun. Here are some ramblings about Japan and the memorable things I liked and observed.
Takbo: Echigo Country Trail 2019
June 16, 2019
I never expected to go on an out-of-the-country trip this year, but life works mysteriously and that led to me being at the starting line for the Echigo Country Trail in Japan. Here is my account of my first international race. Continue reading “Takbo: Echigo Country Trail 2019”
Basa: How E-books saved my life
One of my 2019 resolutions is to read more books. I used to be a bookworm during my youth, but smartphones and apps have really changed the face of the world. Fortunately, the convenience of smartphones can also be used for good. Swapping my mobile games for e-books, I got started on the first book of many for 2019.
