    I stopped playing Ingress last year, which I did enjoy (till they ruined it), so figured I'd give it a go. Enjoying it so far. Bumped into a few people also playing it. A lot more girls play this lol

    I value my phone's battery life too much, and - for that matter - my relationship too.

    Re: QOTW: What do you make of Pokémon Go?

    Nearly crashed into half a dozen Pokemon Go players on my lunchtime run today - they're certainly a bit of a health and safety risk! I do like the idea of a computer game that gets people up and about though, so I'm cautiously positive on it for now.

    Pretty much hooked already, but it's the reason I've met my step goals all week as it's meant I've wanted to leave my desk at work during my lunch break which is no bad thing

    Enjoying it so far, mostly harmless fun, and I enjoy taking pictures of Pokemon in amusing situations (that'll fade away soon I'm sure).

    I can't talk about the longevity aspect yet. The game is clearly a grinder, albeit one with a unique selling point.

    I won't be spending any money in it though. Sadly that does really limit the rate that I can evolve pokemon.

    I don't want to get locked in a dark basement by some old dude. I also don't want to cause a huge car crash. So no thanks

    Re: QOTW: What do you make of Pokémon Go?

    It's possibly the saddest thing to have come out in years, I can't believe grown adults are addicted to this and behaving like mindless zombies whilst 'playing' it. I'd rather stick pickled onions up my behind than waste my life with Pokemon

    Maybe it should be each to their own rather than complaining about who is playing a game or not.

    Haven't tried.



    Seems to make some people paranoid and hating on gamers though

    Re: QOTW: What do you make of Pokémon Go?

    I had a lady (I assume only in the 18-22 range) at my workplace ask me if I could hatch some Pokemon eggs for her; I overheard her mention about being far enough away or something. No idea how it works, I assume you get special ones in different actual locations. Earlier in the day another one of my colleagues said his kids were playing the game, so I kind of realised what was going on, but still, I wasn't expecting someone to randomly ask me about it.

    Just what we need... even more people with their heads buried in their phones not looking where they're going...
    I wasn't interested 20 years ago. Certainly aren't now.
