Pokemon Go

Schoon

Olaf just a heads up, P4R is an onion-esque satire site. 

That seizure episode is real though, I only knew about it once the Simpsons parodied it:

isn't most of this parody!  there were actual Christian sites, less dramatic that essentially said same thing, and not Parody, that one religion in a certain country that will go unnamed because you know making fun of stupidity in that is a culture, is wrong these days (trending)...

is Pokemon replacing the spiritual with the virtual? zombie apocalypse - end times baby end times.

so I saw a bunch of NYU numbskulls standing in a circle looking at their phones, tapping frantically, talking about funny named creatures, but no eye contact ....if I wasnt on my way home and smelled funny like a homeless man, I would of jumped in the middle of their circle of numbskulls and dropped my pants.

So people spend real money to get a mostly completed game?

that's no different than autocad or revit.  it's called 'software as a service" or SaaS since we like acronyms.  you niether buy, nor own, the software you're paying for.  as part of that, you don't get a finished product, you get an evolving product.

Curt, looks like the post I replied to got deleted. It was someone selling pre-played pokemon go accounts so you could... I don't know, brag to your friends about your fake phone app accomplishements?

Perhaps I should buy a pre-checked in Untapd account and boast my beer experiences to all you peasants?

... or sell your untapped profile, so you can make piles of money and someone else can get bragging rights?
 

i misunderstood your post then.  that would be called 'pay to win' (or p2w since we like acronyms).  it actually makes the game more true-to-life.

true-to-life is weird.

I'd rather drink my way to success rather than cheat. It's tastier and more fun.

Tryed it once, got annoyed immediately, got rid of it. Didn't stop people thinking I was playing it while checking Google Maps

If nothing else it was an interesting experiment of augumented reality on a global scale and of what madnessn could ensued by it, but maybe not too much ot of the ordinary when a new fad goes viral. Not sure what was more fascinating, that it was inherently satanic or inherently racist (http://www.smobserved.com/story/2016/07/23/news/black-lives-matter-accuse-pokemon-go-of-inherent-racism-no-seriously/1596.html)
