[Venture Beat] Pokémon Go launches in U.S. on iOS and Android - Page 3

post #21 of 125
things like this and the possibilities of AR is why i think it'll win in the AR/VR battle.
i grew up in the woods and it would have been so fun to have AR games to play with my siblings and/or the few kids my age that lived near me.
AR adventure games or something similar would be amazing.

Heck, I am out in the country side near a creek. Plus, being in the Guard I occasionally get to go to other places. So something like this would be a blast to play. biggrin.gif

Ingress did attract a more mature audience due to the interesting nature of locations and accompanying gameplay. Photographers were really into it .

The game will be addictive and while microtransactions will exist they most likely won't be necessary.

Looking forward to seeing how it goes

I can guarantee it runs off of Ingress data. I not only recall them mentioning it last year, but also every single ingress point that was near me (and/or one of my regular haunts back when I used to play it) is in Pokemon Go.... Kind of annoying that gyms are based at churches though.

So far the game has been good! I'm literally traveling right now and there are tons of pokestops at the airport, so i've got a nice stash of pokeballs and a couple of eggs to hatch.

Sadly there are no wild pokemon here so i'm stuck at level 3. There are a couple gyms nearby i'd like to check out but that level 5 requirement is a letdown. I'll be spending some time outdoors in Oregon and hopefully there will be some nice pokemon to be caught out there. I just hope i have the level to catch them

Lmao, O boy....I wonder how long before someone or some group down here in South flips off about that. tongue.gif

Was bad enough when I was in high school here and they where banning the cards and Harry Potter books. rolleyes.gif

"pokemon teaches evolution"
"harry potter teaches witchcraft"
"magic the gathering are tarot cards"
"DnD promotes demonic possession"

Sounds about right for me.

Got in crap for playing Pokemon at lunch in grade school. Right around when it came out so 1996 is when my parents took them away. mad.gif

Lord of the Rings was also a no no.

My favorite is when my friend convinced his religious mom (who already banned harry potter) on why he should be allowed to play Diablo 2, which in my opnion was pretty brilliant:

"But mom, I play as a crusader who is tasked with killing the devil, so its got christian values...."

He got 40 bucks to go buy it.
