Baliktanaw: Thank You, Gfriend

Gfriend is no more. I’m sad and wanted to get things off my chest, so I tried to compile them into a blog post. However, I decided to turn it into a video instead because it can show so much more than just words and pictures. You can watch the video here, or click read more to see the transcript and the video sources I used.

Laro: Aloy’s Amazing Curiosity

Horizon: Zero Dawn is a game whose reputation far precedes itself. I’ve heard nothing but praises from my friends who have already finished the game. But since it only came to the PC fairly recently (It was a PS4 exclusive until August 2020), I only had the chance to play it now. Not that big of a deal since I’ve reviewed 5-year-old games pretty recently. In fact, Horizon: Zero Dawn might be one of the newer games I’ve played this quarantine season. So, let’s talk about it.

Laro: Bayek’s Bizarre Adventure

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.

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.
