    Just went against my morals and put some preorders down.

    Fifa 17
    BF1
    Batman: Return to Arkham and
    Titanfall 2

    Does anyone know, if I preorder COD IW and it comes with the downloadable MW1 as an add-on can I just use the download code and returnIW game to EB games? Essentially getting a game for free?

    I caught a drowzee wtf that is just before.
    Looks like spawn spots/frequencies/etc have changed?

    Caught a Dragonite in the wild down by the Yarra on Monday too.
    First time I've experienced the 30 people running to one spot to catch a pokemon.

    I was sitting in my car and everyone ran towards me, didn't know wtf was going on.

    Yeah I loved it, thought it was great fun. Being yo to put up bollards when cars are chasing you is so much fun. Also the multi-player was really different and essentially playing hide and seek took me back to being a kid. I used to drive a normal car and drive normally to avoid being seen by other players. I'd even park the same way a NPC would. Was quite funny.

    There was one time I was on a semi trailer and I kept getting out of one side of the truck while the player walking around it, then I would jump in the other side and he'd have no idea. This happened for ages.

    Yeah its a great game. Quite pretty, cool idea. Story jumps around a bit and the cars handle like a bar of soap but the multiplayer was lots of fun. #2 is out soon, itll be the first game I buy close to release on PS4.

    I did the same cat & mouse thing with a guy in a parking structure, running up and down stairwells to different levels while he was driving up and down the ramps trying to find me. And when it descends into a full on car chase is pretty cool. Its hard trying to show restraint in a crowd of people, to act normal or drive and remembering to stop at lights. Good trick if you're struggling to find someone is to drop a grenade or something... Its hard enough to make your character blend in when everyone is acting normal, when everyone is panicking, its impossible to not stick out.

    Just looked at my pokedex and apparently I have seen a Lapras, Arcanine, Gyarardos and one of the other big ones.

    Must've been while I had my phone on going for a walk or run with it in my pocket. Sad

    They released an update some time ago where Pokemon you look at in a gym are marked as seen, that might have been what happened.

    That makes a lot more sense.

    EDIT: I reckon it's ones that I've actually battled in a gym. Seen loads more in gyms that don't pop up.

    Not a mobile gamer, can't stand them to be honest - micro transaction rubbish.

    I've been playing FFXV and it's absolutely amazing. When I'm not playing it I'm thinking about playing it, very addictive.

    What are some oldish PS4 games I can grab from the bargain bin to play while I wait for the new Red Dead Redemption? Something in the watchdogs/infamous/farcry genre preferably... I picked up The Witcher 3 and its fun enough but im just not loving it.

    I did look at Lego Batman tbh... but it was squarely in the shelving, not the bargain bin.
