Sounds like a good idea to me.

I look up reviews before buying a product. If a few dozen people think something is crap, why should it pop up in my feed? I'm not buying every product just so I can form my own opinions on all of them.

My threshold is -10, so I wouldn't have even written this reply if that feature existed!

Unless I felt like manually uncollapsing your comment, lol

Final Fantasy 13 disc-only for $0.33 (CAD). It was.3 games for a dollar from the local library when they were clearing out old stock.

In the time I spend figuring out what happened, I'm probably also getting stabbed. If not, I'd be wondering if it was targetted (and therefore I'm safe) as I'm running away, but I haven't planned an escape route yet, so I'm just as likely to crash into an obstacle as I am to run away.

Like with criminal justice systems, you either have to be okay with letting 1% of the bad guys go free* to make sure the good guys don't get caught, or you catch 100% of the bad guys but also mistakenly lock up innocent people.

Is dragging what happens before someone else slams them?

I feel like this every time I play a P2W game as a free player

I would say there's a distinction.

"I want more" is different from "I don't want to share".

  1. Tap search button on the bottom.

  2. Search like normal for communities with the search term. Results returned like normal.

  3. Clicking the unfilled heart (to subscribe) results in the error presented in the attached screenshot.

  4. The back button (Android) doesn't work. App must be force-closed.

  5. The subscribing action was successful; discovered on reboot.

  6. Repeating the steps, but instead of the unfilled heart, clicking on the community successfully navigates to the community.

  7. This didn't happen before.

  8. I might be one update behind current as of Mar 18

Bananas are ridiculously cheap even up here in Canada, and they aren't grown anywhere near here. Yet a banana can grow, be harvested, be shipped, be stocked, and then be purchased by me for less than it'd cost to mail a letter across town. (Well, if I could buy a single banana maybe...or maybe that's not the best comparison, but I think you get my point)

Along the banana's journey, the farmer, the harvester, the shipper, the grocer, the clerk, and the cashier all (presumably) get paid. Yet a single banana is mere cents. If you didn't know any better, you might think a single banana should cost $10!

I'm presuming that this is because of some sort of exploitation somewhere down the line, or possibly loss-leading on the grocery store's side of things.

I'm wondering what other products like bananas are a lot cheaper than they "should" be (e.g., based on how far they have to travel, or how difficult they are to produce, or how much money we're saving "unethically").

I've heard that this applies to coffee and chocolate to varying extents, but I'm not certain.

Anyone know any others?

Due to personal circumstances, I haven't had much time for gaming in the last year.

I did have a couple of months in the summer with some free evenings though, so I dumped a bunch of time into Pokemon Violet, and I also completed Super Mario Sunshine, spending several hours getting those last few shines and blue coins after leaving the game at ~85% completed back in 2022.

Other than those 2 games, I hadn't really played much of anything on the Switch.

My year in review said I put a ton of hours into Pokemon Violet, single-digit hours into F-Zero 99, and less than 1 hour into NES online.

No mention of Super Mario 3D All-Stars.

I was wondering why it didn't count. But then I realized that these year-in-review things are not a nice service or gift to subscribers... they're ADS that they intend people to share with their friends to get their friends to buy more games. (What's a better review than "Your best friend played this game for 200h last year"?)

Since SM3DAS isn't available in the shop, it'd be useless to advertise that game. So maybe Nintendo is excluding it from their calculations...

Can anyone else confirm or deny this? Did anyone have any delisted games make their year-in-review? Or am I just going to need to spend a ton of time 100%ing Super Mario Galaxy in 2024, and only play 2 other games on my Switch? Lmao

I know money can't buy happiness blahblahblah.

Do they do gift exchanges at all?

Do they ask for anything?

They have enough money that they could get anything made or done for them at a moment's notice. Like having ChatGPT, but for services. Ridiculous things we couldn't imagine.

Anyone have any insight into general trends along those lines?
