  • Japrst_ Jamie@someone host a local in esco (@Japrst_) reported

    @FiZzLEJH Look, Jay, I love you man, but uhh. "I’m not trying to say either side is the right one. I’m neutral about the online service. I just made Nintendo say what they are claiming the online service will have/be like Calm down"

  • FlareHabanero SETH | Professional Plant (@FlareHabanero) reported

    The NES service on Nintendo Switch would be much more appealing if they included "special" versions of certain games. Kind of similar to the SEGA AGES titles. Cram old games with new content to make them feel fresh again.

    I may sound crazy for saying this, but I wonder when the next Nintendo Direct is... it's definitely E3 isn't it. I know we got Maker 2 and a new patch for Smash in April, but there's nothing else for me at least to look forward to except Crash Team Racing and Lethal League Blaze.

    @FortniteGame Fix mic on nintendo switch

  • Chukkaque Chukkaque🌐 (@Chukkaque) reported

    @Stealth40k The problem with SJRPs is you have to do it right Especially considering a majority of the console base 1: sucks at sjrpgs 2: thinks they at sjrpgs 3: sjrpgs can be too hard, slow, and boring at times And Nintendo has done a great job of catering to its fanbase and newcomers

  • micooboi Mike Fowler (@micooboi) reported

    Man Nintendo fan pages be like “the good old days” with a video of some black and white wii game intros and some sappy ass music with some crying emojis. Like shut ******** up go to gamestop and buy a damn wii if you miss it so much it’s like 60 bucks problem ******* solved

    @wasp_kid FREE!* *for subscribers of the Nintendo Online service

  • AzureblueZ29 Stu (@AzureblueZ29) reported

    @Goldmario791 This is a known issue on all Nintendo Switch Pro controllers, unfortunately. It has caused me a lot of trouble with platformer's I've played on the Switch (ex. Celeste, Hollow Knight, and Enter the Gungeon). You can switch to Joy Con's. Wish they'd fix it 👎

  • Prince_iNSOM Chris~ (@Prince_iNSOM) reported

    nintendo fix your online for christ’s sake like i cant play online without several errors constantly. its trash.

  • AvidanSmith Avidan Smith (@AvidanSmith) reported

    @JudgeDeath5 @NintyPrime @Commonrealm @FerrisWheelPro but Nintendo as a whole has killed that perception....people just don't like Nintendo and don't bother to look at ALL the games. And when Nintendo DOES present these games....then it's a graphical issue. Bayo 1 and 2....not kiddy..Octopath, Warframe...

  • Kaylanime Kaylanime Shortbread Cookie (@Kaylanime) reported

    I lost my rank because of nintendo... sewriously, @NintendoCanada @NintendoAmerica @Nintendo GET DEDICATED SERVERS FOR SPLATOON. We're not paying for your crap service because we want to. We want something out of it. better connection

  • eops BlackWaxSolution (@eops) reported

    @neilrich75 I worked in games for many years and there is a disconnect between ‘gamers’ and people who play games. For eg Sony & Xbox wanted to be backwards compatible with previous consoles but the market proved too small to be worthwhile. Nintendo reboot stuff pretty often mind.

    @FortniteGame Fix wireless mics on Nintendo switch

  • Gasglow 『OralPancake~』 (@Gasglow) reported

    @DanganPitou Honestly, only real "issue" there is with PlayStation right now is the fact that they aren't fully accepting crossplay. Which I'm honestly okay with, I don't need to play with Xbox, Nintendo, and PC on everything.

  • Govnaah Gov (@Govnaah) reported

    @Stealth40k People have been mentioning the frame rate was bad but I still think that was probably a error with the capture card or whatever They used to capture the footage. I don’t think nintendo would let a game of that low quality be shown in the direct.

  • KohleWise Kohle Wise (@KohleWise) reported from Elmwood, Louisiana

    @ZinogreVolt The issue on both sides is they fixate on the vast minority/troll cases where people adamantly defend Nintendo for no clear reason and those who think Nintendo is doomed after not getting what they wanted in a Direct.

  • AntonUklein 𝕬𝖓𝖙𝖔𝖓 𝖀𝖐𝖑𝖊𝖎𝖓 [Anton Uklein] (@AntonUklein) reported

    My only issue with N++ for the Nintendo Switch is that the launch version tries to connect to the Internet by default. My Switch is kept permanently offline because I like launch day copies. This might have been an oversight by @metanetsoftware (though I understand why online)

  • damontwits Vanity Name (@damontwits) reported from West Norriton, Pennsylvania

    @trilllizard666 Nintendo seems to do a thing where they consider comments by saying "people don't like this," then solve it on their own way. Feedback identifies problems but fans tend not to be the source of solutions.

  • dylanmouland Dylan Mouland (@dylanmouland) reported

    @juiceDiem Not to mention controller input lag, I’ve tried playing my Super Nintendo on a 72” screen and it plays like shit. When ever I feel like playing snes I’ll play it on my tiny 16” tv that I had in the 90’s lol

  • TerminasDeity The Fierce Deity (@TerminasDeity) reported

    @per_c_k @PokeKellz Not sure if joking but if serious: Tetris 99 for Nintendo Switch is the game and platform. While you need to pay ~20$/month for their online service, Tetris 99 is completely free.

  • JuanArosemenaa juan arosemena (@JuanArosemenaa) reported

    @NintendoAmerica fix Smash Ultimates garbage laggy online connection instead of focusing on DLC

  • DaedalusMach7 DaedalusMachina007 (@DaedalusMach7) reported

    @DigitalTrends @Nintendo Not a problem when hackers have managed to 'unlock' both of those systems. The primary benefit is the Nintendo-endorsed emulation rather than 3rd party ones. However the primary drawback is a lack of any future updates for said emulators to fix bugs and/or improve compatibility

  • fabie_fiona Fabie&Fiona (@fabie_fiona) reported

    @UndrDogGaming @NintendoAmerica So weird! Hope they can fix that!

  • xXxAzraelxXx Azrael (@xXxAzraelxXx) reported

    @NerdDadZech I downloaded it and then realized I need the Nintendo Online Service which I don't have 😕oh well.

  • Hutch2Much2 YEET (Requests: CLOSED!) (@Hutch2Much2) reported

    @SleepyRiolu99 @NintendoUK all consoles have bugs. but i use the pro controller 😎 so i haven’t seen this issue

  • _D1vy [SSGG] D1vy 💚 (@_D1vy) reported

    @SleepyRiolu99 @NintendoUK My left joycon had the same issue, eventually just bought new ones

  • GameTradeGregg Game Trade Gregg (@GameTradeGregg) reported

    @ScouseMouse180 @RetroGameFix Part of the problem that Nintendo has always had is that it doesn't want to "devalue" by releasing "budget games" It sucks because the game should be priced based on cost to make not name power, but thats the N way. (1/2)

  • MyTeamsAreAvg 🇺🇸ANTONIO👱🏻‍♂️👩🏾👦🏽👶🏽 (@MyTeamsAreAvg) reported

    @NJD107_ You’re right. I was worried about passing out too early and them outlasting me. My 4 year old won’t be the issue. He’ll just play his Nintendo till he passes out too. My 2 year old might stick shit up my nose and make a fire

  • Toon_Master1 Toon Master (@Toon_Master1) reported

    Says my Internet is stable but every game I play there’s input lag wtf is this shit this shit is ******* aids @NintendoAmerica suck my ******* ****

  • Dakpan94 Dakpan (@Dakpan94) reported

    @LancelotttR6s @NintendoEurope @NintendoUK I agree completely, why can i play fortnite online but not awesome games like rocket league without paying for 8 euro's 'service'

  • Toon_Master1 Toon Master (@Toon_Master1) reported

    Nintendo needs to fix their ******* internet service this is ******* ass

  • CartridgeGames Cartridge Games (@CartridgeGames) reported

    Imagine at $10 Tetris woudlnt have caused any buzz. But “free” with Nintendo Online helped the service somewhat. A co-op puzzler like snipper clips would’ve been a good choice too.

  • TysonDragonFox Tyson Dragon Kitsune (@TysonDragonFox) reported

    @LugiaBerry Not yet as far as I know. It sucks, I hope Nintendo decides to fix it soon.

  • samueldorwart Sam Dorwart (@samueldorwart) reported

    @FortniteGame @FortniteGame My friend who plays on Nintendo Switch updated the patch this week and his voice chat doesn’t work anymore he has tried reinstalling the game and that didn’t fix it either his epic username is “ Chokkymalk” could you please look into this

  • subtlykawaii 🌟 kawaii princess milla 🌟 (@subtlykawaii) reported

    @themasterofcube Treehouse ruined the localisation lol Theyre doing Three Houses too but hopefully the managerial decisions tsken at Nintendo since means that release wont have issues.

  • TokennTube Token (@TokennTube) reported

    I love the convenience of the Nintendo E-shop but they really needs to drop prices more frequently. No I’m not paying $60 for Xenoblade Chronicles 2 nor Monster Hunter Generations. These games have been out for awhile fix the prices please! @NintendoAmerica

  • CelestialFoxes SaltyRakan 🦊 (@CelestialFoxes) reported

    i feel like nintendo's quality control on the eshop needs a little tweak as there's still a lot of quick cash grab games, but the fact that switch carts are expensive to produce is definitely stopping the problem that the original ds had

  • gewoonik7 SpectralTv (@gewoonik7) reported

    @PlayWarframe i found a glitch on the nintendo switch if i try to do the first mini specter boss fight in the silver grove quest my game crashes i tried multiple times it kept crashing

  • NickSantangelo Nick Santangelo (@NickSantangelo) reported

    @cain141 Eh, neither console's subscription service really interests me at this point. I'm sure one day they'll get to a point when they both do (and then Nintendo too like six years after that, lol) but right now they don't do much for me.

  • SportyVerbiage SportyVerbiage® (@SportyVerbiage) reported

    @PhysGrassroots I want to fix my Nintendo 64

  • tortaki Aki~ (@tortaki) reported

    @onigamerr They kinda do them constantly. Like, reliable sources started rumors about Nintendo adding a new paid service for those who want to pay more, and the SNES emula- I mean "collection" seems about to be confirmed, so I'm certain they're going to charge extra for a second emulator

  • retro_toy (@retro_toy) reported

    @NintendoUK really poor service #rubbish i pre ordered the nes switch controllers in sept 2018. Delivery due dec 18. No item arrived yet .no updats utter garbage 10 emails 8 phonecas but no joy Rubbish service from @NintendoEurope @NintendoUK #gamer #switch #NintendoSwitch

  • daithiPgh Davy (@daithiPgh) reported

    Wouldn’t mind seeing how many Nintendo online subs they picked up this week since Tetris 99 floated. Should have went with this from the start of the Online Service.

  • JSplendid jonathan (@JSplendid) reported from Tonawanda, New York

    @wizardbumpin no. i must defeat this mii swordsman with half a second of delay and final smash orbs on. i just make them question their entire life. if i beat them soundly maybe they will break their switch over their knee. the video of this will go viral. nintendo will be forced to fix online

  • bdsmarxist 🗃 (@bdsmarxist) reported

    I have spent well over $100 on plastic figurines for a $60 fighting game but what makes my Nintendo online service worth it is a free tetris battle royale game.
