The hordes of Pokemon Go players crowding on places look like a merry
bunch of zombies to me. With smart phones. A bit frightening and also
a bit heart warming.

Met a bunch of folks playing Pokemon Go in NYC this past weekend. Friendly people. It's fun to have some camraderie with complete strangers.

Oh my.

If you search for local businesses on Yelp, they now indicate for every business (such as a restaurant or whatever) whether there is a Pokestop nearby.

It's *that* big.

You know what ... it's a great conversation starter and you get to exchange pleasantries with people out in public.  I'm normally not a fan of anything mainstream but I like Pokemon Go.

Well, I'll give you that.

I asked a random stranger in a grocery store if aisle 5 was a pokemon stop, despite not really playing the game. Because I'm peculiar that way.

That was too much! Should have been a cell phone in his hands though...

A video showed up in my YouTube feed whose title was something about Kinect being the "dark ages" of XBox. The video was crap; it ended up being just ten minutes of Kinect being announced and pushed at trade shows. But it does seem that Kinect is old news and Microsoft isn't exactly leading with it anymore.
And now Nintendo is moving away from the full-motion style gameplay of the Wii as well.

So was it just a fad? Have they figured out that most gamers just want to sit on the couch with a joystick?

There has been quite a lot of push on virtual reality in gaming lately. But there's also the HoloLens... augmented reality.

I suspect augmented reality might be more in line with where things are going to go in gaming, eventually, but that damned HoloLens is far too heavy to wear comfortably.

Just reading the backlog here, and i came across IG's comments about tabletop games. Never really thought about it, but it does seem a good idea for bars and cafes. I was in a bar in a Polish city a few years back, and it was a gamers bar. They had playstations and Wiis installed in the walls, and on the tabletops, aswell as countless other games - way cool! But the only place i have ever seen an attempt at having tabletop games for customers to play. I'm sure your right - and hope someone sees a gap in the market[3[3~[3~[3~
