As a general reply to common themes:
1. yes I absolutely accept that I should have done my research. I assumed I would be able to play online since I had fond memories back in the says of the DS Lite of playing coop. yet This doesn't really excuse their business practice though. Industry standard Steam sales offer an hour of play and then a total no-question refund if you request it. Xbox and Playstation have more cumbersome returns polices than Steam but it is more than possible (edit: sometimes possible). I'm not even asking for refunds - I loved the idea of those Nintendo tickets or tokens where you can redeem for a triple-A first party game. Revoking the licence to Mario bros and crediting one of those would be a very happy compromise.
2. not taking relationship advice here.
3. Yes I agree saying "i'm not buying another" was over the top - i'd just spent over an hour reading about court cases and scouring through their returns policy so wasn't exactly in a reasonable mood/
4. I bought the Digital edition because of the nifty "primary switch" system. for those who don't know, you can designate a friend's switch as your primary in order to share games. Figured it would be cheaper to buy one digital than one physical copy each.
