Now, Pokémon Go, . In case you haven't heard of it, it's it is a worldly wildly popular augmented reality game just take that's taken the world by storm since it's launched. I've persisted resisted playing so farand . I'm worried I might get hooked and ended end up spending hours of my life trying to chase after Pikachu or a Jigglypuff. But it seemsthat I am ain't a , I'm in the minority. With the release of the game in Australia, New Zealand , and the United States on the 6th of July, and subsequently the UK, Canada, several European countries , and in Egypt. , the app apparently has more daily users than Twitter and more downloads than the dating app dating-out Tinder. Politicians are getting involvedtoo, too. US presidential candidateHilary , Hillary Clinton, used Pokémon to encourage Americans to register to vote. Despite its ' successI've , I have read some worrying reports of players, walking off cliffs or straight into crime scenes while playing the game. So, so there are some obvious safety concerns. But what happens when Pokémon Go goes to the museum. ? Many historic and culture cultural institutions have found themselves designated as Poké-stops or Poké-gyms almost overnight.

Thank you for having me.

Now I believe you are part of the original Pokémon generation.

Yes, . A lot of Millennials remember the app as kids.

What's a Millennial , and do you mind me ask asking how old you are?

I am I'm 27 , and a child from the 90s would be a Millennial. When it was originally released in the 90s, we had the playing cards, . We watch watched the cartoons. So now seeing the app come back on our phones, kind of reminds us of our childhood, and it's the first bit of massive mass nostalgia from for Millennials.

譯文

我们来说说Pokémon Go。这是一款超级流行的增强现实游戏,该游戏一经推出便掀起全球热潮。我一直按捺着没敢玩,担心会上瘾,然后就要花大把时间追逐皮卡丘和波波球。不过看起来我是少数派。

Pokémon Go于7月6日在澳洲、新西兰和美国地区上线,随后登陆英国、加拿大、埃及和几个欧洲国家,一经发售便收获众多迷粉。该游戏软件的日常用户数量已超过Twitter,软件下载量也超过约会软件Tinder。政客也会跟Pokémon Go“套套近乎”。例如美总统候选人希拉里就借Pokémon Go之名拉选票,鼓励美国公民注册选民身份。不过,尽管该游戏已取得巨大成功,但也存在隐忧。我看到一些相关事故报道,如玩家过于沉迷游戏从而走下悬崖或闯入犯罪现场。安全隐忧显而易见。

另外,当游戏扯上博物馆又会怎样?许多历史文化机构发现几乎一到晚上自己就被游戏标为小精灵基站或道场。Pokémon Go对我们的文化景点有什么影响?我们请来从事博物馆软件开发相关工作的纽约博主、学术研究者布莱尔·莫斯凯维茨。

“布莱尔,欢迎来到我们节目。”

“谢谢你们的邀请。”

“我觉得你应该是玩Pokémon初代游戏的那一代人。”

“是。许多千禧一代的人都记得小时候那款游戏。”

“什么是千禧一代?我能问问你的年龄么?”

“我今年27。千禧一代指90年代出生的人。90年代的时候,我们玩过Pokémon对战卡片,看过动画片。如今Pokémon Go这款手机游戏让我们想起了童年时光,引发千禧一代用户的怀旧情绪。”
