Shortly after the release of Pokemon Go, I made it a goal of mine to put together a dream team. While I have completed the Pokedex and reached north of level 30, I still feel like I have a ways to go. For now though, thought it would be fun to share some highlights from my collection!
With the console’s projected release just a few months away, fans have been anxiously awaiting for any sliver of concrete information about the Nintendo NX. Yesterday, we got more than just that. We got a name, saw the console, saw its key selling points and more. How does it fare at first glance?
Admittedly, I’m stretching the definition of Toronto here. If you leave Toronto proper and head north on the 410, you’ll eventually reach Gage park in downtown Brampton. Besides Brampton being technically a city that is part of the Greater Toronto Area, it’s also a city I hold near and dear.
Growing up, Gage Park was that pretty little area with the gazebo that no one ever went to. Since the release of Pokemon Go, it’s become the heart of Pokemon action in the city. Why?
Three months, over 700km and countless adventures later, my North American Pokemon Go Pokedex is complete! There is no in-game reward for hitting that accomplishment, but it’s certainly one I’ll cherish. Considering the level of commitment and real-life travel required to pull this off, it’s up there as one of my biggest gaming accomplishments.
With no trips planned to Europe, Japan or Australia, I probably won’t get a Farfetch’d, Kangaskhan or Mr. Mime anytime soon. However, I’m ready to snag the legendary pokemon when they ultimately arrive, as well as continue to level up my pokemon squad. Despite having caught them all, there’s still more for me to do!
Located just steps away from Drake’s upcoming Toronto mansion, Sunnybrook Park is located in an upscale neighbourhood. Besides being home to picnic areas, it also features a world class cricket field and a horse stable. Though I’ve lived in the Greater Toronto Area for my entire life, I did not set foot in this park until it became one of the hottest nests in the city.
Judged solely on its gameplay alone, XCOM 2 is a wonderful addition to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One lineups. Building off the success of the original, this game improves on its predecessor in almost every conceivable way. Unfortunately, some glaring technical issues make this game really hard to recommend if you have the ability to play it on PC.
Throw on your lab coat and get ready to science it up with Dr. Eureka. In this two-to-four player dexterity game, players will race against each other to create specific formulas with their three test tubes and three different chemicals. You don’t need your PhD in chemistry to excel, but this deceptively simple tabletop game is entertaining while making you feel like a scientist at work.
