The world around you is not what it appears.

Since we're all gamers and some of us like exercising too, Ingress may be of interest to you.

Ingress is an augmented reality territory control game. You take control of portals, reinforce them and link them together to create control fields, which earn your team points. It's fun if you're casual or competitive and it's a great way to encourage you to get more exercise because you'll just get that one portal over there. Ok, no just one more over there so I can make a field. Yeah, just another one.

And the most important thing, especially if you are in Wellington, join the Enlightened (green) team.

Sounds cool, but not available for Windows Phone, so they can burn in hell as can all other devs who only build shitty ios or android apps.

I was playing around CHCH ages ago, the amount of in-fighting and whinging both in faction and cross faction made it not worth it. Things may have changed since then

So I started playing this last night, only went looking for portals just now

Ended up almost crashing as I looked at the map for a brief second, the person followed me for 20 minutes.

I feel so cool for almost dying, hacking portals, and then escaping.
And you guys are so wrong about walking, the point is to drive (fuck me)

(pissed off that I almost ruined someone's day over a stupid phone app though. That would of looked good in the police statement)

How do I upgrade my shit, and how do I take out someone else's portal? There are a bunch of level 7 portals really close to my house, within 5 minutes walking

Don't drive and play this game, you'll end up causing an accident

Use bursters to attack portals. Deploy resonators on portals. The training (called missions in the menu) are pretty good and there are youtube videos explaining basic and advanced techniques too.

Any Aucklanders on the Enlightened team should come downtown on May 17 at 3PM. Auckland is a secondary site for an Anomaly centred in Aus, so it'll be a good time to get high level gear, earn easy AP and see the biggest Enlightened operation ever in NZ.

All I have is some shitty horse mask.

I'll just be a mascot or something. Maybe i'm just horsing around here.

Also, was dropping off a friend just now, saw someone pull over and pull out a blue-screened phone... Looked at mine quickly (pssh not using a phone while driving is for chumps and people who believe in "no-horseplay"), turns out they were doing something to a portal in the botanic gardens. Kinda cool when you realise why someone pulled over.

Wonder what team they were on.

Does the blue background indicate a blue dominated area, or just an area in which there are portals, because if so, Manukau / manurewa is being dominated by the resistance.

I'm almost tempted to head down to this enlightened rally.

Also news for the iPhone plebs, it's coming to iOS sometime this year. Maybe the app for windows phones will be released at the same time / plans for it are already underway

Ye, blue background will be a resistance field. If you can get a good view, check their name in the top left. It'll be the colour of their team.

Okay, I had a wander round Auckland last night, and am generally hacking all the portals, and trying my luck elsewhere to learn the game. It's pretty interesting, and definitely does what you think you won't get sucked in to - that is, you start straying off your run/walk line to find the portals... Even if it's just a hundred metres so you come in to range to hack a portal lol.

I'm still getting the hang of it, but overall, do like and am enjoying. I'm Enlightened, of course.

Palmy is shit for it. Along with a whole lot of other things.

Portals are so spaced out that you have to drive between them. It helps that I run my phone via a USB charger and a cradle. I've also got it linked via bluetooth to my head unit, so it sounds like I'm in some awesome command centre driving around, spying on bad dudes.

Possibly not.

It's a Google app I believe.

Because you apparently get paid loads, you can just pick up a cheap Android unit to use as an Ingress phone.
