Man Rams not police car, because he's moronically trying to play a game whilst driving...

FFS!!

I installed Pokemon Go onto my iPad. I'd look a complete twat stumbling about outside, with my balance causing all manner of issues, and a giant iPad in my hand, hunting down all the Pokepeeps..
So.. I haven't attempted it!
I've been slightly tempted to buy a "not a fucking Windows phone" phone in order to get further.
But the balance issues would still cause problems.

I don't get this Pokemon thing at all - especially among adults.

Each to their own tho, I suppose.

If I were up and about, and indeed even though I'm not, I've always liked the idea of an AI "walker" game.
I used to play a nice word game, where you had to trawl the streets in search of letters. That was fun! .. .. Can't remember wtf it was called, now.
Hmm..

Anyhow, it's just like a step counter, or GPS movement tracker, except with gameplay integrated.
Think of it less as a "game" and more as a fancypants "Nintendo-ised" step counter.

Much like how Miitomo isn't a game, it's a fancypants "Nintendo-ised" social network..

I'm all for getting kids out of the house, but people need to be smarter about playing the game!

Also maybe its time to train up as a physio as they are going to so many people with bad necks in the future!

Sadly, my Binatone brick just won't play the game, thankfully I'll be grabbing a friends galaxy s4 in a few days to join in with it all properly, should be fun!
