Decided to try out Niantic's signature original property Ingress to get a feel for what Pokémon GO might offer. And after playing it for about an hour last night, I can say that Niantic has this in the bag. Ingress is a surprisingly immersive mobile game. Exploring the real world (using your phone's GPS locator), finding portals (which are incorporated into nearby landmarks), tagging, attacking, hacking and recharging give the experience a surprising level of variety. If this is the type of gameplay that Pokémon GO is being modeled after, then count me in.

I just hope it won't turn into one of terrible micro transaction luck based games that suck all your time and money like PaD. Or where you have to pay $0.99 for an extra pokeball and maybe like $9.99 for a pack of ultra balls. Heck, maybe even a special offer like $49.99 for a master ball. I'm trying not to get excited (hey remember the 200 potions bonus for preordering ORAS?) but this might turn out to be cool if it isn't totally dependent on spending money (hearthstone packs come to mind).

I do hope it's one of those games that encourage you to walk more or do more moving, those are fun and motivational.

Sadly, I'm no unlimited data user so it'll be another game I'll have to pass. But it seems pretty fun from what I can see. Hopefully, there aren't any pokemon EXCLUSIVE to one area. xD

i used to have unlimited data but now i have 4GB per month, hopefully that'll be enough to play it reasonably often without having to restrict my pokemon adventure to wifi hotspots ^_^

Niantic says info regarding Pokémon GO and it's release will be available soon, and a Pokémon Direct is in a few hours.

Oooooooh.

It's pretty crazy, with alot of unfortunate incidents of distracted Pokemon Go-ers as well. But all in all, it's a great way to find strangers and talk. :)

I am telling you, there's literally like several new Pokemon Go news articles popping up every hour, good and bad! In the USA, more users are playing Pokemon GO than they are using Netflix, and Hulu! At the moment, it's more popular than porn! Shops are starting to cash in on the trend by offering exclusive deals for players, and libraries are influencing them to stay there longer. Soon, the developers intend to implement ads in the game.

For the first time since the elementary school I'm excited about something Pokemon related, this looks brilliant! Can't wait when it's available in Finland~

I've been having a lot of fun with it so far- it's great to play with friends while you just walk around wherever you live!

Interestingly enough, two friends and I were sitting outside of our city hall a few days ago, trying to take over the gym that was there (which we succeeded in- Team Mystic or bust!), a woman from the local newspaper saw us and interviewed us about the game and such.
