    the world that never was
    So I am a beta tester for Pokémon go and my time with the app has left me really disappointed and here's why.
    1. It's not a Pokémon game at best it is ingress with a Pokémon skin at worst it is a cash ploy
    2. The capture system is really bad I mean if they wanted to replicate the feel of capturing a Pokemon in real life then they are way off as even when you hit them spot on with the ball more often than not if will not comince the capture sequence and you end up wasting pokeballs
    There you go two quick reasons as too why I found Pokémon go disappointed I would like some to hear your opinions too If you have played as well.

    disappointed? nah. i expected it to be really bad from the start. its a cash cow project. not a game project.

    edit: looks like the cash shop isn't nearly as bad as i expected it'd be. so that's nice.

    This. I expected it to be bad but it is lacking so many features. Feels like no effort was put into it.

    I am more disappointed about the human race, following pointless trends and going outside only to catch artificial creatures on their mobile devices.

    To be honest, I am surprised this is SUCH a hit. Like, EVERYBODY is doing this. Yeah, it's good that people are going outside once but Jesus Christ people are acting like it's a wonder app.

    People are sheep, man. Let's hope this will die down as soon as Miitomo. I think it's unlikely though.

    ... Aaaaand find a dead body or get yourself killed while doing that. You know what I am referring to probably. This app can be dangerous.

    I wouldn't call them scams if the games weren't always divided into pairs. The day games stop getting those dumb marketing sales, the day i stop calling them scams.

    ah...ur right about that...but u got to have a choice b/w 2 cool legies,right? and if they put everything into one game,then their sales wud crash,bcoz in pairs people get a choice.
    but i agree wid that.

    They don't care I mean they came up with a game where you can steal your parents credit card so they can get money.

    Meanwhile in Nintendo headquarters...
