  • The Good, Bad, and Ugly of Pokemon Go!

    It kind of blows my mind how undeniably popular this app is. As an employee of GameStop I certainly talk to plenty of Pokemon lovers, but this app has captured the attention of a more diverse crowd than I ever would have given Pokemon credit for and that... More
