TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! COUNCIL LADY HEATHER HALL QUESTIONS STALLED NEW KCI TALKING POKÉMON GO STOPS!!!
As Kansas City patiently waits for the new freebie airport promised to voters, the topic of video game tie-ins earned a surprising amount of conversation.
To wit . . .
COUNCIL LADY HEATHER HALL EXPRESSED WORRY ABOUT THE FOCUS ON AMENITIES RATHER THAN COST!!!
A quick note . . .
Denizens of our blog community asked her to clarify her biggest worry for the project and here's what she wrote back . . .
Councilmember Heather Hall: "My biggest concern is that we are not talking about the two most important issues of timeline and budget, instead we're spending a lot of time talking about amenities and Pokémon Go stops?!"
That's right . . .
POKÉSTOPS ARE A BIG PART OF NEW KCI DESIGN AND TOUTED BY DESIGNERS AS A WAY TO MAKE THE AIRPORT FUN!!!
For those who don't remember . . . PokéStops are a big part of the 2016 mobile video game sensation Pokémon Go. Players must physically travel to explore the game's map and visit PokéStops where they interact with the game and continue to waste their life looking at a screen.
And so, the airport conversation continues while Heather Hall is one of the very few politicos asking tough questions rather than wasting time on video game promotion.
