Toronto may be Canada’s most bustling city and her economic heart, but when taken in a global context, it is trite. New York is bigger and louder, London is more expensive and Montreal clings to chic traditions. Until the release of 7Cities by Neptune Studios, Toronto had little to report itself by on a global scale. This morning, a cricked neck woke me early and I was greeted with a youtube video: Escape from City 17 by Purchase Brothers. I have never played HalfLife but many times have watched over Louis’s shoulder as he hammered crab-headed aliens with a crowbar and gained another freakish personality – I was in deep.
