    Yeah, I've got a cluster of three stops right across the street from my building and I can usually count on at least one of them having a lure during lunch time.

    so i downloaded this game because Wife told me to. um, I sort of get the fun part as much as any other game I guess, though i'm having much more fun just watching the fanaticism. I do think the mechanism of the game/technology is really interesting and will have LOTS of applications.

    I don't see me keeping it going or getting "into" it, I need a game i can play in 8 minute, stationary periods (aka, while i poop) a couple times a day, not one that requires walking around or keeping the game open for extended lengths of time.

    More fascinating than any of it is the totally viral nature of it... FUCK I need to invent/develop/etc something like this, absolutely amazing.

    Said every developer ever. They are making over a million a day in microtransactions.

    yeah, was wondering about that this weekend, especially since churches, murals, and parks are always pokestops. i have at least 15 of them within a half mile radius of my house. traveling in podunk, tennessee for work right now and there's shit for stops, but got a few new pokemon at lunch time.

    i don't know how much longer i'm actually going to play this, but it was fun to check out and get an understanding of. i do like the exploring/getting off your ass aspect of it. would play more often if it didn't suck so much battery. as of now, i'm only opening it a couple times per day.

    They need to create a feature where you get bonuses or upgrades for spinning around or jumping or something, just to see how far they can push the envelope to make people act like a clown in public for more chinpokomons.

    someone who's been playing the gameboy/DS games, just a little sour that the game is getting criticized due to it's popularity...

    I don't mind that it's popular... just the hate that comes with that is pretty annoying

    Nearly ran over two kids skateboarding all over a street a little after I was reading this glorious thread.
    I knew exactly what they were doing with their phones out.
    This is coming to a neighborhood near you. Beware.
