Here’s some sobering news: There is a shortage of alcohol in New Jersey (also Pennsylvania). According to an article on NorthJersey.com, the shortage also affects all categories of alcohol; everything from beer to champagne is getting hard to find.

You can blame the pandemic, the labor shortage, even the bad weather for the scarcity. For a while, canned beer was scarce due to a lack of aluminum. The labor shortage has impacted every aspect of the liquor industry, from truck drivers to workers in breweries and distilleries and factories struggling to find help. Some liquor stores have even made a habit of rationing the hard-to-find items.

Bad weather in New Zealand has ruined that country’s grape harvest, leading to a shortage of some wines. There is also a lack of temperature controlled containers.

If you think you’re just going to cross the river to Pennsylvania to get your booze, think again. According to the Morning Call, our neighbors to the west have started statewide rationing of 43 types of champagne, bourbon, tequila, cognac and whiskey. Liquor stores are run by the state and they have instituted a limit of two bottles per day on the liquor concerned.

The increased demand brought about by the pandemic with sales of alcohol, wine and beer all increasing, in some cases dramatically, also contributing to the problem. According to the Morning Call, alcohol sales from March 2020 to March 2021 rose 75%, while beer sales rose 42% and wine sales jumped 62%.

Good luck finding alcohol this holiday season.

If you were a kid in the Caribbean, especially in independent countries, video games weren’t very accessible. From high prices to a lack of a retail presence, Caribbean kids have had to find creative ways to indulge in this hobby. While my experience as a Caribbean person who enjoyed playing video games may differ from that of other people living in the area, I think I can speak for my Caribbean peers when I say that the rise of digital games made accessing my video game franchises much easier. .

A world without games

N64 Gambecube HeroSource: Rebecca Spear / iMore

Anyone from the Caribbean is familiar with the concept of people who migrated, usually to North America or Europe, to use their relatively higher wages to send essential items like non-perishable food and clothing to their families in cylindrical containers. composed of fibers or blue plastic. This has happened for decades, so much so that the children of these people who often have to stay at home are called “barrel children”.

VPN offers: lifetime license for $ 16, monthly plans for $ 1 and more

It is not a question of painting a desolate image of the region or of presenting the emigrants in a bad light. Because most things are imported into the Caribbean, the cost of living is higher than many can afford. It is for this reason that luxury items like video games are often an afterthought in the eyes of retail businesses. This can be attributed to factors such as the high import costs which, together with relatively low wages for the average man, meant that people tended to prioritize when it came to spending their money hard. won.

These barrels opened a window on countries that we could not have visited until much later.

Growing up, I had a cousin whose mother immigrated to the United States early in his life, making him your typical barrel child. While I am aware of the negative effects these situations have on everyone involved, these barrels have opened a window into countries to which we would not otherwise have access. Parents who lived in the United States sometimes sent consoles they no longer used in the barrels that went home. This meant that my cousins ​​and I could experience the wonders of the Super Nintendo Entertainment System and Nintendo 64, and we didn’t care whether it was years after their release. We didn’t have access to new games, strategy guides, playground secrets, or the internet, so we spent hours playing together on the weekends trying to uncover every secret.

Video games don’t have a strong commercial presence in the Caribbean the way they do in the United States. support stores, which imported any games that may be popular and resold them to their customers.

Where I’m from, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, video games have an import tax of 43% of the cost price, which, added to shipping costs and businesses needing to make a profit, meant that the games often ended up nearly doubling their retail price in the United States. To illustrate, a $ 60 Nintendo Switch game would have an import tax of just under $ 26, which would bring the price up to $ 86 before shipping and the item markup. So console games ended up costing $ 250 in Eastern Caribbean dollars, or around $ 92 USD. The games on Nintendo 3DS, which sold for US $ 40, would cost Vincentians US $ 75, which was made worse by the fact that these games never go on sale because the sellers wanted to recoup their costs as much as possible.

It wasn’t conventional, but it was our way of engaging in a hobby that we loved.

I knew people who would leave the small fishing community I grew up in to work as seasonal laborers in shipyards, returning home every six months for a few weeks at a time. When I started getting more into games, these were the people I asked to bring home games to, either in their suitcase or sent to a barrel before they arrived, in order to avoid the exuberant markup that I would have to pay at retail. Richer friends who went abroad on vacation also brought games home, and we would get together to trade games or watch each other play. It wasn’t conventional, but it was our way of engaging in a hobby that we loved.

The transition to the digital age

Nintendo first entered the world of digital games with the Wii and Wiiware. These inexpensive titles, which covered a wide variety of indie games and legacy content, introduced me to retro games that I didn’t get the chance to play as a kid. The Club Nintendo program also meant that I could use the physical Nintendo DS and Wii games that I managed to get to trade in other Wiiware titles like Bonsai Barber and Fluidity.

3DS is where my relationship with digital games really shone. No longer did I have to depend on traveling friends and relatives to get a game, or save for months to buy games with MSRP well above MSRP. I could finally buy games at the price they were supposed to buy, as long as I saved some money and had an adult with a credit card add funds to my account. It also meant that I could play games the day they were released, and finally be a part of the discussion in online communities.

Bonsai Barber Nintendo WiiSource: Nintendo

Due to the regional lockdown, I couldn’t buy games when I visited Europe every few years, but digital games and Streetpass kept me in the loop. The only thing I had to worry about was storage, which was easily accessible anywhere.

3DS is where my relationship with digital games really shone.

Honestly, I finally felt like I was included. Even when I had to find a workaround and set my Nintendo Account region to Canada just so I could use international credit cards, being able to play digital games felt like I wasn’t intruding just by being a player in a region that was not supported by Nintendo. The process of acquiring games as a kid was so tedious that if digital games weren’t as ubiquitous as they are, I might have moved on to something more accessible.

Not to mention that the internet becoming more and more involved in gaming meant that things like Pokémon Mystery Gift events were now within my reach. I didn’t have to look sadly at Serebii or other guide websites and see another GameStop exclusive event that I couldn’t attend – I could just receive the mystery gift over Wi-Fi. person and physical goods have their advantages, like making gambling an in-person social experience, I think the digitization of events and games makes things more accessible for people with disabilities as well as for people living in countries without native support major video game publishers.

My relationship to physical games today

Nadine Gaming Shelf Nintendo 3ds Switch Amiibo Physical GamesSource: Nadine Dornieden / iMore

There was a time when, once I started working for my own money, physical games seemed superior to me. Being able to acquire physical play was a privilege and there was just something about holding them in my hands that felt surreal to me. After seeing tons of collectible photos and videos online, I finally wanted to create my own. I built a small 3DS and Wii U collection – the Eastern Caribbean dollar conversion rate always meant the games were quite expensive for me. I used to take it out of the drawer I kept them in and teleport them from time to time. I felt like I had made up for lost time, somehow, and my inner child was quite happy with this turn of events.

Of course, the 3DS and the Wii U were region-locked, and my consoles were both from the United States, a country I had only visited twice before. Most of my vacation was spent visiting family in Germany, so it wasn’t until I installed custom firmware on my consoles that I was able to play games outside of the region. This is not a problem with the Nintendo Switch luckily so I have a few games from North America and Europe.

Everyone has their preferences as to how they want to play games.

However, I haven’t strayed completely from digital games. As I got older I realized that having a physical collection is nice until you have to put them all somewhere. I haven’t had a dedicated playroom since moving to Germany, and shelf space is limited. Anyone who knows me also knows that I try to reduce the consumption of physical products where I can in order to be a more sustainable player. Switching games on the fly is also much more convenient, and digital games typically go on sale at least once a year. It also means I can play games at launch, instead of having to wait for the games to ship to my home or struggle with other players to get a copy from a physical store. Most of my games, for these reasons, are digital.

Nintendo Switch online storeSource: iMore

There is one issue that runs through my head and that is game preservation. Over the years, we have seen some games disappear from digital storefronts, and although they can be downloaded again as long as you have them. bought once, it’s unclear whether digital storefronts will be around forever. We’ve seen this with the Nintendo Wii and Nintendo DS, so there’s no way to be 100% sure this could never happen to others. Owning a physical game also means you own the game, while digital games are just a license purchased to play a specific game, which can technically be revoked by the seller.

As a solution, I use a hybrid system – I buy most of my games digitally and enjoy them that way. If really, really like the game, I buy the game again in physical form, but used. Buying them second-hand usually means they’ll be cheaper, unless it’s a Pokémon game, as they almost always retain their value over time. It also means that I am not affecting the supply chain, I am only saving one game from the waste stream. This way, I can support developers by purchasing games digitally, without contributing to the demand for physical products.

I agree that not everyone can use this hybrid system because games can be quite expensive. But it is okay! Everyone has their preferences as to how they want to play. Some people love to own their games and buy physical games, while digital gamers appreciate the convenience of having all of their games in one place.

But what is most important to me is that I have the choice to buy digital games if I want to, and it feels good to know that the people of the Caribbean have more opportunities to buy. more affordable games.

The Tumbler Ridge Public Library was recognized for the TD Summer Reading Club program in the summer of 2020. The program has been completely redesigned to be a mix of online and home delivery in the face of restrictions and blockages. COVID-19.

According to a statement, the library used the $ 500 prize to start the Dolly Parton Imagination Library in Tumbler Ridge. The Dolly Parton Imagination Library program helps children ages 0-5 receive a free book in the mail each month.

Head Librarian Paula Coutts says this program is great for kids who may put a bit more wear and tear on their books than adults.

“A lot of people might be hesitant to borrow library books for this age group because kids under 6 love their books,” Coutts said. “They take them in cars, in backyards and in bed. People sometimes fear that books are damaged or lost, and they might prefer to buy them instead of borrowing them for this reason. This program means we can get high quality books into the hands of children under the age of six in Tumbler Ridge for free every month.

If the Tumbler Ridge Public Library wins the grand prize of $ 10,000, it would be able to fully fund the Dolly Parton Imagination Library in Tumbler Ridge for almost five years.

Voting for the grand prize winner is open on The Next Stride website. Closing of the votes on September 24th.

CARHA is a national non-profit sports organization that supports recreational hockey in Canada. Next Stride’s #HockeyVacciNation campaign aimed to project positivity and celebrate individual and community contributions as Canadians overcome the challenges of COVID-19.
