Pewdiepie: Legend of The Brofist

'Tis the season to be jolly!

Regardless of Typhoon Nona (who rudely decided to crash for a while in the Philippines), I still believe we have reason to stay positive. So far, things are still quite calm and everybody is hoping it'll stay that way until it leaves the PAR (soon, I hope). My internet is "turbulent", and I'm desperately trying to get back to work and all. But still. Let's me joyful! Think positive! Pray! Relax!

Speaking of relaxing, I've been playing the Steam release of Pewdiepie's
"Legend of the Brofist" on co-op with my brother, and we've been having too much fun with it. Too much. The iOS version (priced $4.99) was great, but it had no co-op mode and I'm not really comfortable playing on a small screen, so the Steam version was a real treat.

As my first Steam purchase (I usually just play F2P's and free games on there), I feel like I was under an obligation to enjoy this game. Thankfully, I didn't have to force myself at all.

I LOVE THE GAME! I'd been waiting for a new release on a different platform since the original iOS version came out, and watching Pewdiepie and other Youtubers play the game got me all hyped for a PC/Mac release. It's just SO fun! It's one of those rare games that I wouldn't mind raging over ('cause of me dying a lot and being stupid in-game) and doing over and over again.

With co-op mode available, you can use two controllers or have one use the keyboard instead. Using the controller is easier for me though, but my brother says it's easier on the keyboard. It really doesn't matter as long as I get to play. Haha.

Like I said, I love the co-op feature on this release as I get to play with my brother (who's also a fan of all the Youtubers mentioned in the game). It took me a while to memorize certain buttons (uhuh, definitely slow) but that's just me. The games quite easy to play with someone else, but solo? I tried playing on the hard level and I was a noob. Pretty embarrassing for an FPS gamer like myself. I should be used to arcade games by now. (I played as Pewdie and my brother played as Markiplier. Above screenshot shows my brother has died two times already. No worries, I probably died more times than he did.)

Anyway, I'm really excited for the updates they'll be rolling out (hopefully soon!). The Christmas and Halloween maps were pretty cool as well and I can't wait to play more. I especially loved their Halloween costumes. Haha! Pewdie-chan! :D

Of course, a Pewdiepie game wouldn't be complete without Stefano, Jennifer, Shannen, and FalconLover.

Regardless of whether you're a fan or not of any of these Youtubers, the gameplay itself is really great. There's still room for improvement with the controls and the actual physics of the game, but it's too early to complain. The game IS new, so I doubt the developers will stop working on this any time soon. I just hope the next updates are free, though I wouldn't mind otherwise. I support games like these, especially if it involves people I like.

Apologies if this post is a bit all over the place - the Typhoon's getting stronger by the hour and I'm thinking about the internet stability and current, among other things. 

If you haven't purchased Pewdiepie: Legend of the Brofist yet, I highly recommend it for people who just want to play pixel games, who are a fan of it, or those who just want something to play with. It's really cheap, so it's not a big deal if for some reason you realize it's not for you.

Have fun!

It's THAT Time of Year.

It's the holiday season, and that means shopping, shopping, and even more shopping.

I was just kidding, by the way. It's not about the material things you'll get or the Christmas bonus - it's the way you celebrate, and I mean that.

But, before we get too deep into this conversation about "the real meaning of the season", the first thing people do think about is buying something new, probably as a treat for themselves or a gift for someone they love. (Also, since my last giveaway was a success (at least, in my start-up standards), I'm close to deciding another giveaway or pursuing my Instagram shop for opening (I've had the products on hand - just no time to actually start the venture)).

For those who know me personally, it's nothing new when I saw I want to have something from Apple this Christmas. I've been a fan for so, soooo long and there's no question that I am as devoted to Apple (in general) as I am to my career and family.

Here's to hoping for a fun-filled holiday month!

Review: Binge (Audiobook) by Tyler Oakley

Image from Barnes & Noble

Note: While I am writing this review, I am on my second cycle of listening to Binge. I love it THAT MUCH.

I've never really thought about subscribing to Audible for two reasons: (1) I love reading a book more than I do listening to a narration of it, and (2) I couldn't afford an additional expense. Just last month though, I finally decided to give it a try - and boy, was the journey unexpectedly great.

It's a fact that everybody on the internet knows who Tyler Oakley is (unless you've been living under a rock), and are also aware that he released a self-written book titled Binge. It's just too bad the hard copy isn't available here in Naga, and if I had to spend for a book, I wanted it physically. So, it occurred to me that, since Tyler would be narrating his own audiobook, it was the next best thing. I wasn't wrong. Binge (Audiobook) is amazing. AMAZING and very personal. Let's just say I am more than rooting for Tyler and his #goals in this life.

| Story

I really don't think rating an autobiography is the way to go, but the arrangement and the wordings in general were great. I really felt a connection with Tyler Oakley and his person (though Queen Tyler would never know I exist) and the things he had to go through in life. He's... normal, in a good way. I love how informal he wrote his story and made it seem like we were best friends sharing stories over coffee.

| The Audiobook

IT IS LIFE, honey, L-I-F-E. I am an avid watcher (binge watcher, haha, truly) of Tyler's Youtube videos and I just love how much fun he has (also with his collaborations with others) and the content of his videos. It's relaxing to just see him enjoy his life and somehow, it makes me enjoy mine too. (I love you, Tyler!)

His narration of his own book was more than I could've asked for. I mean, although I already knew he would be doing it, I still didn't expect so much entertainment just by listening. I'm a reader first, then a listener.

I could keep telling you how much I love Binge, but then you'd have to go through tons of paragraphs just pointing in that direction (and you really have no time for that, right?).

| The Verdict

There's no question about it - Binge is amazing both as a book and audiobook.

Overall Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥

Want your own dream car? Go Online!

In a time where commuting from one place to another is incredibly stressful, a common desire among Filipinos is to have their own cars (I am no exemption). Although I don't live in Manila, I've spent most of my life there, and I know exactly how difficult it is just to get to the mall or hang out with friends. I just hate it. However, as much as I'd like to get my own car, I have no idea how to get one without having a heart attack.

For those of you with a similar sentiment (and who are quite uncomfortable visiting dealers), worry no further. BPI has a solution for you: a virtual car showroom.

Through the BPI Family Auto Loans program, BPI now has a showroom online for people who want to browse and compare different brand-new car models without having to leave their homes. It's very user-friendly, interactive, and have a handful of useful features like a comprehensive car buyer's guide, a self-service auto loan calculator, a simple online application form (goodbye, hideous paper-work), and an easy-to-use self-assessment test.

This is great news. I love the fact that BPI has taken into account the public's needs (and wants) and continue to look for ways to "Make the Best Happen" through innovative and relevant promos and products. Through the website, prospectives are given complete information that will help them in financing and deciding which car would suit their lifestyle or personality (and budget) best.

If that still doesn't pique your interest, the comprehensive car buyer's guide available on the site provides up-to-date information on car models available in the country along with their prices, variants, and specifications.

Personally, I think one of the greatest features available on the website is the auto loan calculator, which shows the initial cash-out and monthly amortization that goes with your chosen down payment percentage and loan term. Applying is easy via the online application form, and once submitted, the loan decision is a quick wait, with a period of just 3 to 8 business hours.

“With the improving economic condition of the Philippines due to its strengthening industries and the government’s initiatives to improve transportation, auto manufacturers have seized the chance to provide more options ranging from high-end to affordable cars that will fit what the market needs. Likewise, BPI Family Auto Loan compliments this progress by providing car financing that is affordable, easily understandable, and highly accessible, for everyone. We are committed to contributing to our country’s progress and helping our countrymen realize their dreams of owning their own car,” shares Pepe Carlos, VP and Head of Auto Loans Division.    

If you want to know more information (and maybe shop for brand-new cars yourself), head over to and start making your dream car a reality.
