Personally I am waiting for them to merge this thing with oculus rift. The way I look at it, you know how you look at games from even 10 years ago and think DAMN THAT WAS SHITTY! I imagine with this base version they will eventually move on to better graphics and more advanced virtual play to make it so realistic.

You get better options of user names in early stages of the game, but then again, looks like most everything have been taken

Bets on how long it takes the PC country to get this app shut down? I say 2 weeks.

I went for a walk during lunch (yes I decided to download it today to see what it was about) everyone was walking around with their phones out.

Even saw an old man playing, had to be late 60's early 70's. Unless, he was taking pictures of women and pretending he was playing Pokémon Go. Which old man could be on to something.

Surprisingly I haven't seen playing this except for my GF's 17yr old daughter. She walks around everyday now. Kudos to Nintendo for getting people out of the house. Plus I get to play my video games on the PS4 more often

So far I am just laughing at all the people I see walking around playing this. I have never seen so many people outside walking on our work campus since this game came out.
