    @tapemachines This reminds me of that story of the guys Nintendo brought in to work on the Wii's online service and when he compared things to Xbox live or psn he was told off because no one in those meetings used those service. Japanese companies can be ridiculously obtuse.

  • DimentButterboi Eternityfan7 🦐 || The Quest for Ei! (@DimentButterboi) reported

    So we've got Nintendo being bad at business practices involving fan projects Activision and Ubisoft mistreating employees EA . . . Being EA And Sony being **** at customer service. Activision and Ubisoft are still the worst of those obviously, but still

  • Squidarang Squidarang (extra jumbo) (@Squidarang) reported

    @alpharaddeluxe Did you know? In the lastest game Warioware Get It Together! for the Nintendo Switch hardware, in the microgame Tummy Troubles, failure to help Wario with his stomach issue causes a glitch to overlay the rules of the game on the screen. To learn more, search Wario Tummy Rule 34

  • race_penguin IceAgePenguinRace (@race_penguin) reported

    @PcElitest I have seen videos of the Bluetooth having latency issues with Joycons when docked. Did Nintendo use a cheap receiver or something?

  • Izzi8bit Izzi Rae 💗 Koopa-Cutie 💗 (@Izzi8bit) reported

    @CuckJoey I think Nintendo still has a send it in to be fix policy. But then your without the console for weeks.

  • PrimaveraVills JFKTV created demon children. (@PrimaveraVills) reported

    @weaverc1234 @JustAnLED That’s pretty much what console gaming has been about since its inception. Couldn’t play Mario or Zelda on Sega systems, couldn’t play Sonic on Nintendo, couldn’t play the first three Crash Bandicoot games on Sega Saturn or N64, and you couldn’t play Halo on anything but an Xbox.

  • fgcramen RAMEN! 🇵🇸 (@fgcramen) reported

    @OnTheDownLoTho I mean knowing nintendo they’ll find ways to get around it lol I doubt they’d sell it at all if it had overheating problems, something I thought of

  • __FreeSpiritt Big Homie Daz😈 (@__FreeSpiritt) reported

    Been Wanting To Get Dallas A Nintendo And I’m Trying Soo Hard To Wait But Now His Tablet Is Broken Like Wtf 😭

  • Yourbrokenoven №‽… (@Yourbrokenoven) reported

    @forestminish Nintendo. Sega games just weren't as good. The main problems were the funky controller, and the poor sound quality of the Genesis. Sound effects seemed to come from a cheap synthesizer.

  • DragoFae28 DragoFae (@DragoFae28) reported

    @NdukaubaYT @NintendoAmerica Careful my dude, the switch version is supposed to have some major stability issues that they are working on patching but it still might be a rough run for a little bit, but still congrats and its awesome to see this game back

  • SG_Calcio Steve Graff (@SG_Calcio) reported

    Nintendo absolutely needs to put in a latching mechanism and a stronger connection to the dock in the new version. It should have safety reasons to do so and the Consumer Product Safety Commission here in the USA could have forced Nintendo to address this issue in the U.S>

  • HylianHero83 Hylian Hero (@HylianHero83) reported

    @Doyle066 @nintendolife Point is some games really struggle to run and an upgrade is needed especially since the the other consoles just made a big leap and the Switch is having trouble running what are now last gen games.I'm a big Nintendo fan but I'm not going to pretend to be blind to Switches issues

  • patricknotirl patrick (@patricknotirl) reported

    nintendo wii broken

  • mcclure111 mcc (@mcclure111) reported

    @BlazeHedgehog Well, there might be a Google-Nintendo backchannel, but this would be very surprising to me. Nintendo probably wouldn't give up money just for a request from Google. It's more likely the 32-bit OSes were a support problem for Nintendo.

  • Curly_G_ Grainne Nic Gabhann (@Curly_G_) reported from Louth, Leinster

    Also said I could give it to someone in Australia lol. I went back to @SmythsToysIRE and to be fair the manager is going to ring Nintendo. I understand that this isn't really a Smyths issue, it's a nintendo product.

  • Curly_G_ Grainne Nic Gabhann (@Curly_G_) reported from Louth, Leinster

    So, I bought Lego Worlds in Smyths yesterday. The DLC code that comes in the sealed box didn't work. Got onto nintendo and they said the code is locked to AU (I'm in Ireland). Said they couldn't issue me a new one and to get into the retailers/publishers.

  • AznableTRC 𝐒𝐚𝐯𝐢𝐨🎲 (@AznableTRC) reported

    I need to fix the joycon drift on my joycon or buy the controller pro, i hate Nintendo so much

  • HylianHero83 Hylian Hero (@HylianHero83) reported

    @Doyle066 @nintendolife People are upset because the Switch can barely run even some of it's first party titles and they waste our time with this OLED screen which does noting to alleviate the problem. The real issue is people expected Nintendo to have common sense.

  • Kumakobi Kumakobi (@Kumakobi) reported

    My Sennheisers really do not like working with my Switch. I have to connect / disconnect them like 3 times every time before they actually start playing sound. Just Nintendo things

  • Shadowlover007 TheLovelyQueen (@Shadowlover007) reported

    @NinEverything Still doesn't change the fact that Nintendo IS DOING ABSOLUTELY NOTHING about fixing the joycon drift issue

  • Majin_Jerome Lloyd Braun (@Majin_Jerome) reported

    @boyohoyo1 @shadow_griever They’re focusing on it now. Netflix wasn’t how it is day 1. They need studios to make games for their service. they not competing with Sony or Nintendo like y’all think. They would love their service on their consoles. But in due time you’ll see their plan.

  • handipeno Handipeño (@handipeno) reported

    @CocytusFGC @PUMA @NintendoAmerica No problem homie. Scalpers suck and FGC is fam so I’m glad it worked out!

  • giacmokklassic giacomo c. President (@giacmokklassic) reported

    @RupertDelauni @NintendoAmerica I'm not gonna be naive,these games and the true Snes capabilities were cancelled/hidden in order to make way to the N64 but mostly to make way to the Playstation,i don't believe for a second that it wasn't arranged,and Sega's issues favored the PSX also very suspiciously.

  • Majin_Jerome Lloyd Braun (@Majin_Jerome) reported

    @shadow_griever You don’t get it. They want games for their service gamepass. They not even competing with Sony and Nintendo. They would love to have their service on those two platforms. Y’all looking at this all wrong and that’s the problem

  • DrFeelGood_DFG DrFeelGood (@DrFeelGood_DFG) reported

    @ShadowFoxArche Bluetooth audio was possible on the Wii U as well I believe. However, with the console streaming to the Gamepad before the TV via Bluetooth without lag, Nintendo opted not to use it for accessories.

  • Mehalawy Ahmed El Mehalawy (@Mehalawy) reported

    @Mc75735288 @Diablo Hey, 3 on switch is good, if 2 can run as same as 3 then I cant ask for more.. only problem is nintendo online is really bad for 3rd party games.

  • NintendoShame Nintendo Shame (@NintendoShame) reported

    Nintendo needs a Game Pass-type service.
