Want to get into Ingress? This video will help
The video runs through the basics of the game, even covering the relatively unnecessary mechanic of how to capture a portal. The game has been running long enough that all portals have been captured at this point, and any new portals are snatched very quickly. Still, it is nice to see a simplified explanation of hacking, resonators, XMP bursters, and control fields.
Of course, this is just a description of how to play the game itself. If you want to dive into the story behind Ingress, there is a ton of media at the Niantic Project website, over 100 videos on YouTube, and even a handful of novellas in the Google Play Books store.
