Some guys at work were talking about it so I had to ask too because I've never played pokemon and had no idea what it was about. Apparently the goal of the game is to look for pokemon and then fight them against other ones. Pokemon Go is the newest iteration of that and is a pseudo augmented reality game in that it uses your GPS and "hides" pokemon around you. You have to go to where they are and then you can "see" them using your phone once you're close enough.

tl;dr fvcking nerds and their nerd games.

That actually seems pretty cool. I got a lot on my plate with all the adulting, but I'd be totally down with this if I had more free time.

downloaded it this morning... it's kind of intriguing. I've never been a Pokemon fan, but I love ARGs (been meaning to start Black Watchmen).

I turned it on this morning while we were walking the dogs, and it's kind of like watching google maps, but there are gyms (where you can improve your inventory), pokestops (no idea what these are for)... both are placed intentionally (my gym was at the city center's fountain and a pokestop at the local church). So you walk around and you see how many pokemon are in your immediate area, and basically you keep wandering around until one pops up on your phone map. Then you can capture it.

Also, the servers are down a LOT.

I'm kind of enjoying it when the servers are up. It'll probably last a month or two and then I'll be bored
