Thread: Ingress: go outside

    Default Ingress: go outside

    Anyone playing Ingress? (https://www.ingress.com/) It's basically competitive Foursquare tag using art instead of Starbucks.

    The iOS version dropped today, so there should be an influx of brand new players if you wanted to get in with a bunch of other people. I'm already working on recruits in the area.

    You probably could have already guessed, but you should play Enlightened. Because green.

    I'm somewhat interested. I find that the game-ification of everything is sort of messing with me these days. I'd rather just do the thing than get points for the thing. (Which is weird because I still love a good Achievement.)

    I might give it a go though, just to check it out.

    I've described it before as "competitive foursquare-with-art-instead-of-shops." I've had a really excellent opportunity to visit the possibilities of these spaces. I'm generally against gamification, but my wife and I have had a lot of fun gamifying our guts. And we've been able to get in touch with local people who are as nerdy/geeky as we are. That was huge -- it was like a big level booster to +10 find other nerds.

    a bunch of god damned coworkers just started playing now that it's on iOS. and they all went green, wtf? (obviously, i'm NOT GREEN)

    but it's been fun stomping on their feeble attempts. they'll level up soon enough, but it's amusing

    Plus, i'm moving across town, and it's oddly exciting to be surrounded by new and different portals and players.

    Sounds to me like your co-workers are smarter than you. You should petition for your faction swap immediately.

    Duh.

    I don't think I've got more than 8 hours sleep in the last week. I crash-smashed my first farm yesterday and it was glorious. So many smurf tears.

    I'm completely fucking addicted to this.

    I haven't played a "real" video game in 2 months. My steam account is pretty much untouched. Old gamer friends constantly bitch about "where have you been?"

    Don't care. I have a city to field. XD

    I have a state to field.

    I can't talk about this game on Facebook anymore because opsec.

    If my friends don't Ingress, we no longer have much to speak about. I should probably call my parents.

    I can't do anything but live this game.
