This Week In Gaming: 01/05/2021

05 January, 2021

Welcome to the 3rd weekly AYS Gaming Column, and the first of 2021, where Sam Ellis, Jr. Editor for Allyourscreens, discusses new gaming news and events in the gaming world. I am fueled by the New Year, and nothing else.

Epic Games, who is known for creating Fortnite, decided to turn a North Carolina mall into a new HQ. As the company’s current HQ is also in Cary, NC, and is a mere 10-minute drive from the mall. It will start this year, and will be finished by 2024.

For the Kanto event in Pokemon GO, you can win your custom NPC in the game, and you have to submit it to Twitter with the hashtag #PokemonGoTourContest, and it must follow these conditions: it must have your trainer profile visible with your trainer name and outfit, a list of the 3 Pokemon you want to use, and the hashtag above. If you want to compete, you have to submit it by January 11 at 11:59:59 PST, and meet those requirements mentioned above. Niantic will pick the people who best meet those requirements, and will be added to the game on February 20th, when the Kanto Tour will take place.

Also, for the Pokemon, you have to pick Kanto Pokemon, and you can’t pick Ditto, or any Legendary or Mythical Pokemon. Only 8 people will be selected, and winners will be DM’ed around the 18th of January. Everyone can enter and Niantic will choose winners based on those categories, not counting the hashtag.
