it's not recommended, it causes massive issues with the built in programs and you will spend ore time fighting your system then just going with a native, I just tried this a few months back

The latest Mario games have seemed to been quite meh for me, like out of watching gameplay of them anyway. Legend of Zelda though I'm not a Zelda fan but dang was tears of the Kingdom fun to watch, almost made me break my boycott on their products, thankfully though they've issued like three rounds of dmca since which has firmly solidified my decision.

I've been the same way with my switch, I haven't touched it for probably a year and a half outside of a short bit when tears of the Kingdom launched where I replayed some of breath of the wild and a small portion of Animal Crossing, I agree

They had been falling for at least 4 years now, I had already strayed from doing anything on the switch from lack of appeal, but their crackdown on dmca with the yuzu Community was the final straw for me, I didn't even use the emulator myself but I've always heavily embraced emulation and the ability to Tinker with stuff that you purchase and that just didn't sit right with me.

It was also around that time that I actually read into what happened with Gary Bowser, and that made me sick to my stomach, because it was essentially the equivalent of Prosecuting a cashier for the crimes that the CEO did.

Honestly even if they were still prospering I wouldn't recommend the products, it's hard enough to recommend their product to customers in the first place due the platform restrictions and the fact that they just keep regurgitating the three same IP over and over again, and that's without the active hostilities towards their fanbase

I like the ideology of having private likes, the problem is you need to trust the platform in order to have a system like that, back when Lakes were private there was trust in the platform nowadays there's zero trust in the platform, it wouldn't surprise me if they're going to use this to fake engagement numbers for their userbase

Why even bother with bots? Since the like list will no longer be public they can just literally code it to artificially inflate the system to boost propaganda in the way that they want to make. Or you were able to see who was liking it so you could verify those an actual person behind it, now you can't.

With this new system there's nothing stopping a comment from being sent to the Moon likewise with only one person actually liking it ex. Musks social posts can have 80,000 likes where as only 10,000 actually liked it.

Who needs to spend money on engagement on the platform when you can fake the engagement and get the same results because members will be like oh there's a lot of people interacting with this and will interact with it as well when in reality there isn't actually much interaction with it

The people that they are likely changing this policy for are high enough up in the social hierarchy that they can't be arsed to have more than one account, that's too much work for them and those same people are also likely the ones that are giving them money which means that he has a direct incentive to do this

On the flip side of that coin, being able to see what other people like Embraces interaction because you can look at a like list see who else liked that post and then by doing so you're interacting with that post as well, where with the new system there's no longer an incentive to interact with a post unless you find it entertaining. Which I fully agree with I just think it's going to lower their overall engagement metrics

Someone set a timer, how long will it be before they reverse that change. VISA has been very open about not wanting to be involved with anything that is NSFW, and about time Visa reaches out and says yo we're pulling the plug on your usage of our services it's going to reverse

It's actually quite worrisome, many projects exclusively have their troubleshooting or support on Discord now what's going to happen years down the road when all those Discord servers have closed or no longer active and the invite links expire this is going to be a vast knowledge base that's just lost to the world

Most features that smart phones had. Most prodomimantly the micro SD card slot, headphone jack and IR blaster.

especially with mobile phones now, look at iPhone for example, it's so user friendly that if you try to do anything remotely advance you need to jump through hoops to do it. I had a sales person try to tell me that the iPhone was expandable because it had cloud storage capability, they didn't know what a Micro SD card was and that it used to be able to go in all the flagship phones. Pretty disappointing
