    @stevenchase87 If Nintendo sees BK making bank again, I'd like for them to buy back Rareware and take another stab at a new Banjo-Kazooie. I mean, Crash Bandicoot is coming to the Switch now. Why not BK?

    @noonskytower U just have to call nintendo and tell them the problem in detail, they'll prompt u through some things to confirm troubleshooting if i were u I would only call if it's consistently interfering with gameplay and i can tell u they don't want the box it came in cause of thieves-

    @noonskytower THAT'S WHAT MINE DID A WHILE AGO,,, only the r stick turned itself only when i first entered the square in Splatoon It could be calibration issues but if u caibrate a few times and it stops that's good but if it worsens then u probably have to call Nintendo and get them replaced

    @Ron_Swanson7978 @Creeperbrine102 @JoelEsc69 @NintendoAmerica The best way to avoid being criticized is to stop doing things deserving of criticism. I've already said that looking at the replies isn't the best idea, but I've also said that there being a risk is no justification for being part of the problem.

    Spyro- I think that he has a chance, however I think Crash is more likely for some of the reasons I mentioned before. Skylanders did do really well on Nintendo consoles, but Spyro became less of a mascot as the series went on.

    ...of using a second Twitter account. However, then it's not easy to directly upload from my Nintendo Switch or PS4. My biggest issue is, I have way too much going on in my brain, and thinking about things like this, leads me to more and more complex solutions, and burn out.

    @GooGivers @Okyr07 @XboxP3 Which I'm not at all opposed to. Just an example. It's stilly to die on the hill of "Conker is too inappropriate" when Nintendo had no problem publishing Bayo 2 and is actively working on Bayo 3.

    @NNobody94 @splatebot You aren't supposed to post stuff like that, so I'm going to report it. This is a video game. This isn't the place for identity nonsense. Just play the damn game. If you have a problem with the rules, talk to Nintendo. This isn't negotiable.

    I have blue slip-on Vans for PlayStation/Sega and red slip-on Vans for Nintendo. Now I just need green slip-on Vans for Xbox and I'll be all set. Of course the only problem is the only ones I can find are a disgusting and dull shade of green.

    @LonelyGoomba Kirby games just seem too "casual" for me. I guess as long as Nintendo fans like Kirby they'll stay keep it the same. After all, if it ain't broke don't fix it.

    @gamesyouloved The problem with Toys R Us is that they were overpriced, in the tune of $10 per item sometimes compared to other retail stores. They were also known to mark up the prices on Nintendo games so a game that was 49.99 everywhere was 59.99 just cause you are in a toy store

  • SamuelDecoske
    Samuel DeCoske (@SamuelDecoske) reported

    @MarioManiacYT @NSwitchShots @Nintendo That doesn’t negate the fact that people are still abusing game breaking bugs and wall glitches that Nintendo needs to fix. I tried for almost three minutes to get in there and it wouldn’t let me roll in there. And I don’t think being able to break the game is “getting gud”

  • Uzoka_Aoi
    Olu Uzoka (@Uzoka_Aoi) reported

    @PlayerEssence But I also want Nintendo to address these issues before 2018 ending to give 3rd parties less of an excuse.

    @WWEgames @JEFFHARDYBRAND @MATTHARDYBRAND @TheBethPhoenix I just downloaded the DLC for Nintendo Switch and most of the DLC characters theme won’t play. The Big Bossman entrance is still broken and DX theme song is not in the game at all. The game is broken and the DLC is broken. I didn’t want to give up hope, too late!

  • JPsupper
    supper (@JPsupper) reported

    @omelettecounty my issue's more with too many FE characters, all the third parties they added are huge video game icons regardless if theyre humans or not. i dont count bayo because shes on the same boat as pokemon for being "basically nintendo but not really"

    Nintendo Support sent me a pro controller for free after my last one messed up. Once again, gotta love their customer service! :D

  • Llydis
    The Red Menace (@Llydis) reported

    Apparently it's easier, and better, to find indie games on Switch than Steam. Which either shows how broken Steam is or how Nintendo is actually interested in selling video games.

  • holdendepardo
    Holden DePardo (@holdendepardo) reported

    @Dinfire @michaelpachter How vital are game specific stores such as GameStop to a console maker such a Sony, Microsoft, or Nintendo? Some have suggested that a digital only future is hindered by the relationships with those types of stores. Can’t imagine a store like Best Buy would have the same issues.

  • EvoDeus
    Darren Terwilliger (@EvoDeus) reported

    @vivicarol0200 Like...the PS3 ACTUALLY screwed up the Light Dash because there's two buttons that do the same thing. On a Nintendo controller back on Gamecube, I would dare say it pretty much fine-tuned my issues w/ SA1's controls (ESPECIALLY fixing the Chao attacking issue ;v;) to perfection.

    i just had a random thought about the fact that nintendo now has the rights to stick crash bandicoot in mariokart, and also possibly tracks from crash team racing

  • SammyArtBun
    SammyArtBun (@SammyArtBun) reported

    @TheWonPMK @SEGA not to mention that Cloud's game, FF7 was originally suppose to be on N64, but couldn't fit on the cartage, so Square moved to the Play Station, leading to that disconnect between Nintendo and Square Enix.

  • TheWonPMK
    TheWonWhoKnows (@TheWonPMK) reported

    @SammyArtBun DuckHunt is still a Nintendo franchise so that rule wouldn't apply to them. Sonic was @SEGA mascot for 10 years before going 3rd party. Crash 3 to 4 years before going 3rd party. Not the same legacies or clout. Still your right if he want them they will be.

    @Civence51 @SmashBros_Nin You are ignoring 2 facts: 1. Nintendo fans lack of support for 3rd party 2.Nintendo's history of bad blood and disrespect of 3rd party these 2 have always been a problem

    @CristofferLange You can if ya have the Nintendo Switch Online app. Though it looks like the fella disconnected. Lots a folks just get unlucky with a connection error/unstable connection so unless they were purposefully foolin around, it ain't worth reporting.

    @CherifDragonfly @sevengranddad92 @LonelyGoomba There are problems. It might totally ruin the Kirby franchise. Nintendo has been keeping it safe with Kirby, maybe it should stay that way.

    Nintendoshi (@Nintendoshi) reported

    Okay I said Crash will likely not be in the new switch game, but thinking on it, now that nearly every video made includes him, he's a big mascot, and has had a much broader history with Nintendo than I thought, he has a good chance.
