So I've started playing Ingress. It's been around for a couple years, but I just recently found out about it. It's an augmented reality game developed by Google which requires your phone to help you navigate to real world landmarks which are characterized as game objects. It's quite amazing.

The premise of the game is for you to leave your house and seek public landmarks which are "claimed" by members of different factions. You choose which side you'd like to be on and then attempt to take control of their landmarks (known as portals.)

To take over a portal you have to initiate an attack on it to deplete its energy capsules called "resonators." When you can destroy a resonator, you have a chance to gain control of the portal.

Portals are "linked" together. When they form a triangle, they close to form a field. Controlling fields is similar to controlling land mass. The more land mass that is controlled, the more warm fuzzies everyone feels. That last part is ridiculous but, hey...it's just what I understand as a complete noob.

Let me know if I'm not understanding something.

I've decided to use Google+ for random game playing and fun posts. I won't be using it for English teaching and advertising but instead for thoughts and experiences surrounding my experiences in the gaming world. Who knows, I'll probably change in the future. I use FB for a personal journal of my life and here for, eh, whatever.

I got banned from Archeage!! WT#?! OK. Well. Maybe it was because I spammed the chat with HATE okaygoods.com HATE. Their bot is filling up the chat with gold for sale. I decided to spam them back but got banned in the process. They probably also banned me for making my mount run around in circles for hours so I could level it up, and for the fact that I bought some gold on another website to use in the game. Do you understand any of this? #Archeage

I'm playing Archeage. Do you know about this game? I love it. I've been playing it for about 25 hours now and think it has much more potential than any other MMO including Eve, Elder Scrolls, or the others that don't even come close.
