  • Dunieye Dunie (@Dunieye) reported

    why did I get a communication error after i destroyed the other team in turf war and my rank went down @NintendoAmerica it’s 2022 why are you still running your servers on floppy disks

  • Phantom_Str1ker Phantom Striker 2001 🇦🇺 (@Phantom_Str1ker) reported

    @KeyToAeris My picks 1. Noah & Mio (The Nintendo Rep) 2. Dante (don't care about the mii outfit issue) 3. Eggman (The iconic villain) 4. A Danganronpa rep 5. Scorpion (the Fighting game rep) 6. Crash (A highly requested character)

  • Skull_Kidsx David Wolford (@Skull_Kidsx) reported

    @G27Status Sony also hasn’t done anything with its PlayStation Plus Premium bs. Like 120 a year for 12 PS1 games? And people were quick to jump Nintendo for 50 bucks a year for their service? Or people that bash Gamepass. Doesn’t make any sense to me

  • WastedCynic Josh Major (@WastedCynic) reported

    @Solidrev1 I can't imagine a shooter on that console lol. I only use my switch for Nintendo exclusives. Not only are the sticks tiny(and that's coming from a small guy), i find aiming with the sticks is just loose and ******, especially with the drift issues it already has

  • whatsongamepass What’s On GamePass (@whatsongamepass) reported

    @moparful99 @GalacticReacher @XcloudTimdog How many Nintendo games still 60 since the launch of the switch on the regular? That’s a switch problem. Stop making bad arguments.

  • Amphy516 Amphy (@Amphy516) reported

    Eh I guess Big Run exists. I’d just be surprised if Nintendo adds it back as a battle stage because even they clearly didn’t like it. Would work perfectly for Big Run and Tricolors though, and I think a few changes would fix it up too.

  • ProjectXbox17 Xbox 007 (@ProjectXbox17) reported

    @DialgaMarine817 @J_a_mess03 @truewiddy1 Nintendo has no issue here

  • BluSatire Blu Mcafee (@BluSatire) reported

    Outside of buying Skyrim for the 20th time i see folks mad at not Nintendo for this Skyrim anniversary game being 70. Problem is it’s a Bethesda game , also people only saw but didn’t look for themselves to know that , that is a bundled price. Digital deluxes have always existed

  • patricknotirl patrick (@patricknotirl) reported

    nintendo wii broken

  • cupofseashells sunny! (@cupofseashells) reported

    i'm trying my best to not be like genuinely really upset about this but it's hard not to be disappointed still. i can't just keep saying nintendo moment after every connection error and try and laugh it at off this point

  • FaultyMagician Faulty (@FaultyMagician) reported

    @GoldheartTTV I would like to ask as a representative of the Nintendo Simps Staff where the information about us hacking into others discords accounts came from, as we would like to address the issue and stop this misinformation from spreading. Thank you

  • Kipuuki Kip (@Kipuuki) reported

    Splatoon 3 is the worst online service Nintendo has ever put out

  • Mimskeet Mim (@Mimskeet) reported

    @NintendoAmerica Fix your splatoon 3 servers!!!!!....

  • LimeReversed Lime Reversed (@LimeReversed) reported

    @Bikachan90 @Nintendo Wooow...You get punished for their broken system...

  • MtfRho SCP MTF Omicron Rho Kurtz (@MtfRho) reported

    @DanielMcArdle3 @AdamantDre @NintendoAmerica There's literally a massive frame rate drop issue and no ability to mod it back to a playable state .

  • MtfRho SCP MTF Omicron Rho Kurtz (@MtfRho) reported

    @MarioOdyssey_1 @YoungBlight @NintendoAmerica This game got by with mod support to fix the litany of technical issues it released with. The Seitch does not have mod support. Bethesda released a broken game...again.

  • MagicantMyth Magicant (@MagicantMyth) reported

    @FloweryDingus shoutout to some of the problems being fixed with DLC and then they wrapped up development also them doing the usual "release barebone games and sprinkle in new content every 3 months" shtick that makes a majority of new Nintendo games dead upon release

  • Mama_Bedlam Mama Bedlam 🥃 Delightfully Devilish Caba-Mama 🎃 (@Mama_Bedlam) reported

    @PlagueDocRex Space being a problem because these consoles are also getting generally huge when I already have a large PC. Nintendo seems to be the only company keeping things at a rational size but they also have issues, generally.

  • ryder_ripps RYDER-RIPPS.ETH 🔜 (@ryder_ripps) reported

    So lets get this straight... according to them.. Yuga Labs – named after Zelda character, Nintendo IP Gargamel – named after a Smurfs Character, Smurfs IP Emperor Tomato Ketchup – Terayama IP (and maybe Stereolab too?) They sure have no problems stealing IP from others..!

  • RobbTheMusical Allison (@RobbTheMusical) reported

    @nathanl75 Mine had an issue where if it wasn't literally using the provided, nintendo-official USB-C it wouldn't display on the TV.

  • Deoxys48 💙💛Deoxys48 @Hisui (@Deoxys48) reported

    @KeyToAeris 1. Sol Badguy (Guilty Gear / Arc System Works) 2. Ring Fit Trainee (Ring Fit Adventure / Nintendo) 3. The Hunter (Monster Hunter / Capcom) 4. Noah & Mio (Xenoblade / Nintendo) 5. Crash Bandicoot (Crash Bandicoot / Activision Blizzard) 6. 2B (Nier:Automata / Square Enix)

  • kittytamasings Kitty-tama (@kittytamasings) reported

    You can quite literally walk into a Walmart and buy Chaos;Head right on Nintendo Switch. Yep. Nintendo! Chaos;Head was suitable for its guidelines. Question is, where is Steam's guidelines? The problem is theirs are seemingly arbitrary, there's no consistency.

  • AnthonyBreeder Feeder Farmer Anthony (@AnthonyBreeder) reported

    If Nintendo never came up with Donkey Kong, Crash Bandicoot would've had the opportunity to make Donkey Kong be a buff anthro donkey villain

  • FinnaArf shark thingy (@FinnaArf) reported

    Won my 3rd S rank up game, got a comm error so it didn’t count the win lost 2 more matches and lost the rank up series fix ur services nintendo please

  • justsomebodie Nidachiii 💫🌙✨ (@justsomebodie) reported

    I’m tired of this @NintendoAmerica THREE pairs of joy-cons T H R E E! have been giving me issues. Two pairs with drift and now the third not connecting to my switch. 😠

  • Souvlaki96 HungryHorror 🎃😋🍕 (@Souvlaki96) reported

    @TacoBelle117 But, Belle. It’s been established that it’s only bad when Nintendo does it. Sony can do it no problem. 🙄

  • xCYTONICx xCYTONICx (@xCYTONICx) reported

    @Relapsedgooner @xALPHAzOMEGAx The reason I give Nintendo a pass on their games prices is because they always work and are 90% good games whilst other companies release broken messes but I agree it is expensive being a Nintendo fan sadly

  • CRollrCaco Carbon Roller Cacontroversial (he/him/HISS €(•{ ) (@CRollrCaco) reported

    @Phanto_Minus @PownicMania5000 Like they're unwilling to take a loss here and there on software to make back later through other games helped by that work and earning customers' trust, instead just taking losses on hardware since it's the software that gives hardware value. Nintendo has a REAL trust problem.\

  • OrezSuke 💫Orez-Suke💫✨ (@OrezSuke) reported

    @NintendoAmerica @SplatoonNA Imagine, finishing wave 3 successfully Timer reach 0 We all stay for some reasons All of us able to move, paint, booyah without lag or issues 25 seconds later there is an error message And I get the combo of getting -20points and getting a time out ?
