    Apparently Pokémon GO already has more daily users than Tinder, and will soon (if not already) have more daily users than Twitter. This has increased Nintendo's market cap by $11B in one week. You've probably heard the story about someone finding a dead body while walking around looking for Pokemon. Or the one about trying to use a drone instead of actually walk around.

    There still appear to be tons of bugs around gym battles, missing Pokestops, server connectivity issues, etc. But when there are 50 people gathered outside a random auto shop in Austin at 10 PM on a Sunday night (because there are 3 Pokestops you can access without walking), things are officially bananas. Anyway, share your love/hate of Pokemon Go things here.

    Was it so hard to walk around before this game?

    Today's my first day playing it after being away last week, very fun so far. Managed to catch a bunch just on my walk from the train station to the office. If nothing else it should keep me occupied for that to/from walk every day.

    My wife and 3 out of the 4 kids are doing this crap. Neighborhood kids are walking all over the place including my lawn. Get the hell off my lawn.

    Fuck Pokémon GO.

    Make it Pornstar GO then we can talk.

    In case you haven't see the video game thread: I'm obsessed with this game.

    Also my wife is playing and she never plays games.

    There's plenty of stray and wild animals out there people can collect and battle for a little more realism.

    If this keeps a bunch of you away from breweries for a few months, I'm all for it.

    Or they will walk around breweries drunkenly bumping into people more than they already do.

    Remember when being a nerd wasn't cool?

    I refuse to believe a large portion of grown-ass men are playing a Pokémon game. Crazy.
