Pokémon GO (mobile)

Do you also play with non-PlayStation devices? Do you enjoy playing as a plumber saving a princess? Or some bald marines? Or maybe you want to play using the touchscreen?

Pokemon Go players face backlash from sacred sites, authorities
http://www.news.com.au/technology/home- ... 08eb498349
THE world is awash with Pokemon Go mania — but not everyone is happy about it.

If you’re one of the few people still unaware of the craze, Pokemon Go is a smartphone-based augmented reality game in which players are required to visit “Pokestops” and “PokeGyms” dotted around public spaces to collect valuable items and battle other opponents.

But as players frantically run around town participating in the Nintendo-created frenzy, they’re leaving some disgruntled folk in their path.

Players were reportedly moved on from a NSW park by police overnight after calls from angry residents about noise levels and rubbish left behind by the group.

Peg Patterson Park in the waterside suburb of Rhodes in Sydney has attracted a large number of players over the past couple of nights due to the fact that three Pokestops intersect at the location. A photo posted to the Pokemon Go Sydney Facebook page on Monday night showed a huge crowd of players who had descended upon the location.

According to one Facebook user, the crowd was even pelted with water bombs on Tuesday night by residents in apartments surrounding the park in what he labelled as “backlash” from locals.

A Rhodes resident told Fairfax Media that there was “complete chaos” in the park due to the Pokemon crowd.

NSW authorities are wary of the growing number of players and yesterday sought to pre-empt those participating in the game from entering the courts to look for Pokemon characters.

A Facebook post uploaded Tuesday by the NSW Department of Justice warned the public not to enter the courts while playing the game.

“Attention budding Pokemon trainers: you do not need to step inside a courthouse to find Pokemon,” the post reads.

“A reminder that the use of recording devices in NSW Courts is prohibited ... and carries a $22,000 fine or imprisonment for 12 months (or both). Stay safe and catch ‘em all!”

Earlier in the week, NSW police tweeted a message telling players to be safe and warning people not to stray onto roads.

A Victorian man who claimed to be involved with testing the Pokemon Go app told 3AW this morning that the game had taken an inappropriate turn.

Identified only as John, he told Melbourne radio host Neil Mitchell that players had been spotted laughing and looking for Pokemon in cemeteries at Dandenong, Kew and St Kilda.

“To be honest, I find it disgraceful,” he said. “They’re in a place where people are reflecting for their loved ones, it’s not an area to play with.”

Certain other sensitive sites such a memorials and museums have also been caught in the crosshairs as the desire to capture Pikachu knows no bounds, leaving some miffed at the insensitivity of players in certain situations.

The Holocaust Museum in Washington DC is one of those places.

The museum is one of many real world landmarks that is designated as a Pokestop within the game where people can collect free in-game items.

As you might expect, museum administrators aren’t stoked about the huge influx of highly animated, smartphone wielding gamers.

“Playing the game is not appropriate in the museum, which is a memorial to the victims of Nazism,” Andrew Hollinger, the museum’s communications director told the Washington Post.

“We are trying to find out if we can get the museum excluded from the game.”

Another very sensitive landmark in the country which has been swallowed by “Pokemon Trainers” is the 9/11 memorial in downtown Manhattan.

The Koffing Pokemon, a levitating purple monster with a skull and crossbones on its belly, appeared next to the reflecting pool at the memorial Tuesday — right next to the thousands of names of first responders who lost their lives in the attack, reported the New York Post.

Some of those who were there to pay their respects were reportedly a little unnerved by Pokemon players inundating the site.

“It’s disrespectful to the people who lost families. Playing a game is one thing, but they shouldn’t do it here. This is like a sacred place,” said a 61-year-old Staten Island labourer who helped clean up Ground Zero.

They’re certainly not the only dubious locations to feature in the game.

One Pokestop site in New Zealand was luring gamers to the Hells Angels headquarters for the Whanganui chapter.

While in Sydney, a Pokestop is located on Kellet Street in Kings Cross, which is the back entrance to a methadone clinic.

Nintendo is behind the game which uses a maps application with a gaming layer.

The game’s producer Niantic Labs — which specialises in location-based gaming — was responsible for another augmented-reality mobile app called Ingress, and the same maps system featured in that game is used for the Pokemon application.

Currently, there is no option for the public to remove landmarks as Pokestops or PokeGyms in the game.

But with the craze showing no signs of slowing down, Nintendo might need to make a couple tweaks if the world is to peacefully coexist with this new wave of Pokemon Trainers.

Para sa mga Zenphone pepoles.

Pokémon Go now supports Android N preview and Intel chips
The latest Pokémon Go update to appear, v0.29.2, now supports Nexus devices running the Android N developer preview as well as Intel x86-based Android phones. While these two support requests might seem a little niche to many of you, both have been making a lot of noise since Pokémon Go was launched last week.

^Oh Yes!! I can clarify it although I haven't downloaded it yet. Our FB groups gave us the heads up about it.
Someone tested it and it worked. Server not yet ready though.

^basa ko din yan sa news. It's crazy man... downside lang sa ganito is kung ano nakikita mo sa phone mo na pokemon, ganun din sa iba. Hindi sya randomized. Madami ka talaga makakasabay sa isang spot. Yung iba nagamit pa nga ng drone eh. Goodluck na lang sa data usage ng mga user dito sa pinas pag lumabas na yan dito. :lol:

Yeah this is really crazy. Same data kayo lahat. Which is the objective of the game. Magsama-sama kayo sa mga designated PokeStops and PokeGyms.
Yung gumamit ng drone? They cheated the game. Pinalalabas ka ng game tapos uupo ka lang to collect monsters?

So let me get this straight.. The pokemon locations are based on the map, not on the player's phone, so if one spots a pokemon, the others can see it too? Does this mean this can't be played offline?

Yup, kelangan mo gumamit ng data at location services to play this game. It uses augmented reality so the pokemon you'll find depends on the location not on the device. Which explains kung bakit dumugan ang mga tao lalo na sa mga crowded areas dahil they can detect the same thing that you see, ewan ko lang if that applies to everyone at an area at a given time.

Yung gumagamit ng drone is actually to locate the pokemon lang. The user still needs to be physically AT the location of that pokemon in order to catch it. Kung mapapansin nyo nagtatakbuhan pa sila sa video kasi the pokemon does not stay at the same spot for too long, they also run away kaya talagang kumakaripas ang mga player sa mga videos na napapanood nyo.

Imagine if this happens here, di na ko magtaka kung kaliwat kanan na disgrasya at holdap ang mangyayari. :sweat:

Ay yun nga lang, di ako nagamit ng mobile data, di nga nakasetup yung phone ko for that. That's a bummer, sa bahay, office and sa Pizza hut lang ako may connection.

Tiba tiba ang mga network nito. I could buy yung mobile wifi and charge people. >.>

Gagatasan talaga ng mga telco to. I wont be surprised if they come up with means na pagkaperahan to like introduce phones with cheaper plans para afford ng users just for this purpose. The player can opt for just pocket wifi pero magkakatalo sa baterya so bebenta lalo yung powerbanks at higit na mas matutuwa lalo yung mga snatcher. :rofl:
