    shout outs to the uk nintendo store that wouldn't let me send a ticket sending what my issue is but is fine with me sending "help"

  • AfroMacintosh Aidan • #BLM (@AfroMacintosh) reported

    @literal_cringe @mintyMit @NiGHTS108 Yeah, this was one of the earlier games which Nintendo did the "games as a service" schtick with. It was fun during the Splatoon 1 days, early Switch was "okay, maybe less pls?", then it got crazy with New Horizons.

  • HufflePumpkin Katie Jane 🦝 (@HufflePumpkin) reported

    Okay what is UP with this #acnh lag!?! It’s so bad I don’t wanna play @NintendoAmerica

  • False_Refracted .-. . ..-. .-. .- -.-. - . -.. (@False_Refracted) reported

    Guess who now has TWO broken Nintendo consoles

  • thesharkant TheSharkAnt Gaming & More (@thesharkant) reported

    @Sora4Smash2 I wouldn't be surprised if Nintendo openly admits that they don't care enough about those franchises to cater to them. Also, the Pokémon fighters have more diversity in their movesets (outside of clones), so I don't really the problem with Pokémon's representation.

  • audanini nira.。.:*♡ (@audanini) reported

    i called nintendo support bc i was having issues with my switch and the man helping me WAS SO SWEET

  • jaytheboom jaytheboom (@jaytheboom) reported

    @FortniteStatus why can’t I log in on Nintendo switch fix your game

  • redkingeddy Mr. Red (@redkingeddy) reported

    @nintendolife That’s the problem with Nintendo fans… YOU push your hopes up, and YOU disappoint YOURSELF. Stop doing this to yourselves. Go see a psychiatrist you psychopaths.

  • GuyFoxDay GuyFoxDay (@GuyFoxDay) reported

    @HuskyTw1nk I think one of Nintendo's problems with VR is basically none of their big name franchises really suit it that well. Maybe Star Fox ig

  • LaughingCorvus Laughing Corvus (@LaughingCorvus) reported

    @Joulari2 @GameStop @NintendoAmerica I have similar problems, it's why I always try and do my preorders in person.

  • Flaming_Gaming_ Flaming ❤️‍🔥 (@Flaming_Gaming_) reported

    btw removing weapon's only weaknesses isn't just 52 problem, look at bamboo after damage up and mpu or chargers first game, seems like nintendo is just repeating mistakes at this point...

  • JazzyFuture Liam (BANJO MAIN) (@JazzyFuture) reported

    @KRoolKountry If there was a fighting game about any one Nintendo series, the roster being all of one series makes sense, it would be like complaining that Mario Kart doesn't have Captain Falcon. The problem just kinda comes from "a celebration of gaming" being 10% a series that nearly died.

  • BeanstheRoo Oh, Beans! (@BeanstheRoo) reported

    @EdBCollie If you want Nintendo online service, I can provide

  • patricknotirl patrick (@patricknotirl) reported

    nintendo wii broken

  • gurkisdev GurkisDev (@gurkisdev) reported

    @GingerJay91 @NintendoAmerica why's it broken tho 😭

  • All_Meshed_Up Shiny Human (@All_Meshed_Up) reported

    The biggest problem is that @RareLtd was vital to the N64. Nintendo knows this. GoldenEye won't happen, and anything they could put on Switch has better versions on Rare Replay. They could add on-the-fly enhancements through the emulation (like Mario 3D All-Stars) but... why?

  • bxBLAZExd 🔞BLAZE(Artist)🔞 (@bxBLAZExd) reported

    Aye Does anyone want a quick sketch(with light detail) $10 Amazon Code or Nintendo Eshop code.(Any fart or **** alts +$5) Been really stressed last few days and just having alot of anxiety problems -_- So i wanna Grab Nexomon that just came out and try and relax and play a bit.

  • 11im19 1im19 (@11im19) reported

    My another issue is that Japanese bots beasting the race. No one mention about this, but it gives me a sense of Xenophobia from Nintendo. Another proof is that they are not great players in multiplayer races. So I don't know why they are so great as a bot, but not as a player.

  • SenpaiIsshiki Isshiki (@SenpaiIsshiki) reported

    Am I the only one who is experiencing major problems with YouTube on the Nintendo Switch? I just can't watch videos for some stupid reason. And for onece my trashnet is not the problem there.

  • shyguy_2046 Devron dudemeister (@shyguy_2046) reported

    @AtelierRann It reminds me of the Deponia collection and how much that was when it came to Nintendo switch compared to pc and ps . That's the issue. Not the game but pricing is an issue .

  • NightMare_SSB NightMare (@NightMare_SSB) reported

    @NintendoAmerica fix your ******* controllers

  • bryancabooya devilman (@bryancabooya) reported

    I feel like a real IT when I’m trouble-shooting my Nintendo switch controllers

  • macphisto96 Mr. MacPhisto (@macphisto96) reported

    @steaksaucees Wise to get the warranties on them. It does look like the fix is easy. Nintendo applied a pad below it on the latest builds that mimics the cardboard fix. It appears that is the solution so should be easy for anyone to adjust manufacturing.

  • winemom_ Zorya🌟 (@winemom_) reported

    @blexper @nintenDIRNT The issue is there’s a specific way to save it on the Super Nintendo & I do it wrong everytime then later find out it didn’t save at all lol

  • LessThanThreeV3 Pink Ice 🍨 v3 (@LessThanThreeV3) reported

    @NintendoAmerica fix smash

  • aspiraldance Amanda Shortman (she/her) (@aspiraldance) reported

    Argh 😫 So O's Nintendo Switch connected to the WiFi this morning but since our power cut won't connect. We've tried resetting everything. It will now connect to the router but not the Internet. Says it's a DNS issue, but we've tried changing servers and nothing. He's so sad 😔

  • bastrij_ Bastrij (@bastrij_) reported

    @retro_and_chill @shitlibloek @LucasOfSunshine Nah bro nintendo should fix their **** products themselves

  • AlexWentzell Alex Wentzell (@AlexWentzell) reported

    @csmithshine @csmitroyalfan2 It was literally trash. Atari dumped all copies in a landfill. Imagine trying to play Cyberpunk on the NES, that's how bad it was. The game torpedoed video game market and helped lead to the 2 year crash that almost ended console gaming until the Nintendo came along and saved it.

  • AzurenGames 『Azuren』⭐ Rest in Peace, Miura (@AzurenGames) reported

    @YoooBroooHammm @SnoopyG7 I'll buy physical until they no longer provide it as an option, and I'll play whatever games I like whenever I liked because I still own them. I won't need to wait on Nintendo to release some kind of special controller for the Switch and announce an N64 service. I just play them.
