Apparently they couldn't get it right on the iPad so thought it best to keep the user experience consistent. Long touch provides the same functionality.

We must maintain our rage comrades! Sustained pressure on TCP and Game Freak is the only way to overturn this decision!

I also wrote a fuller rant.

Switching teams is only acceptable if you move and switch to the new geographical choice, a relative/close friend starts playing for a team, or the team relocates away from you.  Switching to whatever team is currently good is the mortal sin of sports fandom.  And if you live somewhere with multiple teams like New York you can't flip-flop.  You to have to pick one team per sport and stick with them.
I believe this too but uh, you should see the farcical EPL fans. Put simply, Manchester City didn't have 2 million members in 2016. And they didn't have a million in 2010.

If it involves assembling a team of (sexy) rivals to perform one last heist, then I'm keen hear it.

Sports fans are idiots. Why do they even like the teams they do?
  • Because the teams claim to represent the city the fan is from
    or
  • Because they win.
    or even
  • Because they see them on TV a lot (this can be a subset of the first one)

These are the sorts of a reasons a dog might provide for why it likes things.

EA has had the FIFA licence for more than two decades. Konami are the only other publisher even in the soccer sim space.

You Americans are too hopeful. EA make an absolute killing on FIFA

$2.4 billion in revenue on services. It's estimated 1.5 of that is FIFA Ultimate Team alone.
Just look at that whole graph, they're banking a billion dollars a year.

I'm just going to put it out there; if you take the time / spend the money to playthrough Minecraft Story Mode in the nearly 4 years since it came out, you probably don't care.

I endorse everying Adrock said and have been fully digital since the 3DS launch and I have no regrets.

The only thing missing is a publication you've never heard of saying you have 3 free articles left before you run out, but you can get 3 months for just $1, cancel anytime.
This is honestly, one of the less egregious monetisation strategy. It's just a dollar. What else were you going to spend it on? refined sugar?

But yeah using the web fucking sucks these days. I think I'm going back to my car radio for news now.

Sure, the dollar is a low introductory price, but it always goes up after the trial to $7-10/month.  My biggest issue is when it's not a site I've never heard of and can't say I plan on coming back to in the 3 months.

I'd honestly rather they just charge me like 15 cents to read the one article and I can just go about my day.
Oh... yeah sorry I imagined that they were offering that last option. More websites need microtransactions instead of subscriptions.

Things that need to be banned to get Millenials and Zoomers rooting again
  • Netflix
  • Fortnite
  • Instagram
  • Tinder*
  • Uber eats
  • Screens in the bedroom
  • College debt
  • Extortionate rent
  • Slave wages

*Let me explain.Tinder is killing the nightlife scene. Everyone knows the only reason anyone ever has a "night out" is to get a root. I mean, there's always a cover story like "oh Sam's back in town" or "That band I like is playing" or "It's Tuesday!" "Girl's night out!" but the real reason is you want to get laid. And the whole scene was designed around it. Lots of expensive drinks. Dark mood lighting. Drab deep beats so long you can't talk. The whole place was designed for you to lose your inhibitions and **** someone that you otherwise wouldn't go near if you saw or spoke to them in real life. Now thanks to Tinder, there's a cavalcade of options, so you sit at home with netflix in the backgorund scrolling through, chatting with the best, putting up a false persona to match theirs. And spoiler, despite this very few people are actually getting any roots off it.

If I recall, SMF was chosen because PGC knew the team and got a good (likely free) licence deal.

This is good. When games become scarce they pass into legend. See also: PT.
