Talk about anything here.

I was wondering if anyone in ECS plays this, I've spoken to a few that I know do.. Here is a little bit of info if your looking to play. I am a member of the Seattle Ingress/Seattle Resistance movement and would love to get more players on board. If you enjoy seeing new areas of your community and love the outdoors, please consider this game. To sum it up in a nutshell it is an augmented reality geo-location game. You have 2 sides/factions. You interact with virtual items in game in the reality world based on location. There is a comm chat so you can chat with other players in your area. Currently this game is developed by Google, and is only available for ANDROID devices. This game is in CLOSED BETA / invites only status. The turn around for requesting an invite from the site to receiving a code is pretty quick. If your interested in getting into this game, feel free to contact me and I will get you pointed in the right direction. No matter which faction you choose.

I remember reading about this game a while back, but my phone at the time couldn't handle it. Just got it installed now. Seems kinda neat. I chose the resistance, and then discovered that the whole area around amazon is all green... Apparently, there's work to be done... :)

*EDIT*

ERMAHGERD... that game is freaking awesome. I tried an A.R. game before, but it was bollocks... this one is more like... well, like when you see cool CGI on real images in movies. Shame I'm at work, because I want to play more!

I've been focusing on the area around the Amazon campus (it's green hell!) mainly just hacking stuff, and on the drive to and from work, I'll hack what I can along the way. Hit Lv 2 yesterday, took over my first portal, and built my first links and fields (which were promptly destroyed, but still). My name is JuiceBoxZero.
