The craze has overtaken me. I’ll admit it openly too. I’ve played Pokémon GO and it’s been a lot of fun. I actually started it on the release day and it’s been hard to put down. There have been varying opinions on it though, which surprised me.
It’s actually gotten me and my two brothers out and about walking around for the first time in I don’t know long. We all have different interests so of course finding something that ties in for the three of us is a rare deal. My younger brother and I collected the cards when they had first come along so we had that nostalgia. My youngest brother (He’s 13 years younger than I am) got into the later generations of Pokémon and then researched all of them. I think Niantic and Nintendo did a wonderful job of putting a game together that promotes be active and going out.
I can’t tell you how many other people I have seen out at random times of the day. For example, one night we went downtown for a bit to hunt for some we didn’t have. I would have never gone downtown in our city before not at night. But when we got down there we ran into tons of other people doing the exact same thing we were. We didn’t have a single issue the entire time we were out. It was so nice to see that the enjoyment spanned age groups, races, gay, straight, the list goes on.
On the flip side I’ve seen people complaining about it. While I do understand not wanting people coming up into your yard or private property, bitching about people in public areas makes no sense. I saw a story about a lady here in my town calling the police because two teens were in the cemetery. Now mind you this was not the middle of the night, but the middle of the afternoon. These two teens were not doing anything wrong, just hunting for more Pokémon. What reason is there to call the cops? Were they going to deface grave stones with their cell phone? I mean come on. The police have more to worry about then people having fun. I guess what it comes down to is we should all be happy that for a change there is something that is getting people together. It’s getting people of all kinds out and active and doing something that 99% of the time shouldn’t cause any trouble.
The photo was a fun build for me, it’s just two prims with a nice brick texture and the scene in front of it. I used the new Aggro poster from .random.Matter. that’s available to get at this round of The Epiphany. There’s a bunch of other awesome things in it so the plays are worth it! I cannot forget my pants either. A first time buy for me from [ Excellence ] and I’m really happy with them. They’re available at this round of Shiny Shabby and are available in 5 colors! I couldn’t believe it when I saw them, because when I was at the Skillet concert on July 9th, one of the guitarists was wearing jeans very similar to them. I will be wearing them often and loving it! The rest of my credits are below, time to catch some more pocket monsters.
