    Pokemon Go

    Pretty large if it’s centred on Excel - from the west they start appearing at Bank junction and from the southwest Borough High St/Borough Market, so probably well into Bromley, Dagenham and Stratford too.

    Pokemon Go

    Yes this time around I’m using pokegenie. My strongest are all old catches: 98 Vape 96 Exegg, Vape 93 Gyro, Jolt, Seadra 91 Gengar, Golem after that they drop off pretty quickly. Weirdly the game keeps recommending I use a rhydon that rates at 32% and some similar pinsirs - is there a sound logic behind that or are the game recommendations borked? Also the eggs that had been in cold storage for 22 months all hatched as gen 2/3 Pokemon, I always thought egg contents was set on acquisition but maybe in that time they got wiped...

    Pokemon Go

    Hey all, like many of you I originally changed my Apple store region to get in on Go before release. Had great fun over that first summer, but I gave up on the game in Oct 2016 (just after buddies, before streaks etc) at Level 27 with 131 in the dex, there were a few more I could get by walking but the gameplay was so thin, it just felt done. But I’ve been coerced back onto the poketreadmill by endless pestering from my young nephew who has his first phone and wants people to trade with! So a week ago I restored the app and jumped back in. And after nearly two years out coming back is brilliant! Having two whole generations (that I never experienced on the Gameboy/DS) to catch meant everywhere I looked were new encounters, and my dex has jumped to 258. And that’s only 67 johto/55 hoenn so still plenty to look for! Also new candy, new gyms, raids, friends*, quests, alohans.. it is a so much better game it is barely comparable. Plus there’s now a stop and a gym in range of my living room It changes hands at 3am so it’s not free money! But it’s good for lazy raids The downside is all my best Pokemon are hopelessly retro and behind the curve (gyros, vapes, classic exeggcutor). I feel totally outgunned out there! *Feel free to add me if you want some grotty London landmarks, I’ve already sent a few requests your way: KarminiX 057534406444

    That's also last season's top three goalscorers all gone in the same window How often does that happen? Is that a first for a non relegated/bankrupted club?

    Ghost in the Shell (2017)

    Re the on the nose dialogue: Anyway once I had adjusted to its portentous live action manga campiness I found it wonderfully entertaining, and it reminded me very of other enjoyable portentous cyber tosh such as Johnny Mnemonic, Freejacketc. Though Pantu's camera eyes may have made me more susceptible than usual..

    Justice League

    Maybe these posts had something to do with that, you fucking idiot.

    Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice

    It wasn't rubber just super strength - Supes also ripped off the back of Batman's head like a soggy pumpkin.

    Hang in there bro, it'll happen. I'm mid way through level 26 and had resigned myself to never seeing one, but today he hatched from a 10k egg - after two in a row had given me Jynxes

    Pfft! You think the bullies in your town are tough - check out this asshole camped on my local. And I thought at level 21 I was starting to get competitive

    Pokemon Go

    GrahamS: The Imperial War Museum park is fantastic for Dratinis - there seems to always be one, and sometimes you can get three or four in a single circuit of the park. Also fairly regular Eevees and Nidorans - it's a great hunting spot in general, as you have 10 or so 'stops in close proximity, including a triangle by the front cannon that are almost always lured up by the many teenage visitors. Plus the museum's free I've only just realised the Fisherman and Youngster (magikarp and rattata) trophies aren't bugged - they specify 'big' magikarp and 'tiny' rattata - anyone know what qualifies? XL and XS maybe, but I still think I would have hit these by now..

    Salute 2016

    *kicks away 28mm tumbleweed* I'm heading down to Salute tomorrow Joe, I'll be sure to say hello! The odyssey stuff isn't my bag but if you have some of your earlier releases or zO stuff I'll make a purchase, either way it'll be nice to catch up!

    And he would have gotten away with it if it weren't for those pesky ballboys! If it is to be Hiddink again - I'd rather it were Sherwood - it'd be nice if people can twig Guus is pronounced "Hoos" - hence the puntastic (and now bust due to lack of new exhibits) Guuseum.

    Gender Diversity / Politics in games (was Tropes Vs. Women)

    That was a wub of admiration, Stacey makes fantastic documentaries on social issues. She started as a sort of 'amiable idiot' -in a doc about uk yoof visiting the sweatshops their clothes were made in, i believe- but her compassion and emotional intelligence elevated the material, and the bbc obviously saw her potential as a way to introduce serious content to the bbc3 audience so they kept sending her to report on horrific injustices around the world. Over the course of her series she's become more educated, more investigative and better at understanding the wider issues behind the situations she uncovers, but she still has the naivety and unguardedness that lets the kids relate and disarms her interviewees. She's ace Also the two eps currently on iplayer are at least thematically related, being about everyday violence against women in Honduras and Internet grooming by westerners in Malaysia.
