Pokemon Go
  • Pokemon Go is by the same people that made that one mobile game that Yuzo got addicted to. It's on Android and iPhones now and you walk around and catch Pokemon and shit. Already a bajillion people are playing it (it's going to pass Twitter on Android this Tuesday for total daily users) and lots of people are reporting just walking around and finding lots of other people catching and battling pokemon and shit. It's even got to the point where people are using it to lure other people and rob them at gunpoint.

    Is anyone playing this and what has your experience been? Did it get you to leave the house? Did you find the professor dashing? Did you meet your future SO at a hotspot in town?

    I installed it on my phone today and plan on doing some walking and Pokemon catching this week with the nearby campus quiet from summer break.

  • Finally got started tonight on this. Got to level 4, caught a bunch of Weedles, Pidgeys, Spearows, Ratatas, also a Magicarp, Seel, and Bulbasaur. Still lots of people walking about and playing.

  • I have never caught the terrible Pokemon bug, and I ain't starting now. I don't know what a magicarp is, and I could die a happy man never knowing. This has addiction and piss off your wife written all over it in an unpleasant lime green font. I sure ain't better than the pokefolk, I just have enough game and pop culture slots filled already. I feel some relief knowing this seeming super gaming crack is going to pass me by. Nintendo plus pay to win sounds like it is designed to rip out your limbic system and show it to you. I never ever thought my mtg cards would be worth more than I paid for them, and that is as far as I ever want to go down that rabbit hole.
  • I'm all the way in. I'm so far in that I think I might buy coins. I never buy coins/gems/whatever other fucking thing they use as currency. It's so similar me yet so addicting. Me and my girlfriend went a walk in the park the other day and caught a pikachu. It's awesome.

    Level 11 took on a couple gyms. All good. I'd love the battling to change to the actual Pokemon game style and maybe let me battle other trainers but apart from that this is cool. Oh and give me a way to level up my Pokemon I have other than catching more of them for candy.

Howdy, Stranger!
