    ESports might keep the industry alive but it /feels/ like we’re going to implode again and Nintendo won’t be able to pull us out of the ashes. Because they’re part of the problem now.

    @2KSupport Guys please Answer me a question. Is there any new patch in the works for WWE 2K18 for Nintendo Switch? And is there any recommendations to fix the Online Mode? There is a second of delay when pressing the buttons.

    @ksizzleNJ @NintendoAmerica Yea word. I guess my issue is that this pretty much means that motion controls are 100% needed for game functionality. Squinting at a small screen from a distance in table top mode isn't the most ideal imo. Would like the option to hold it up closer while playing.

    @NinEverything Well that makes this a no buy for me. Because my joy cons are broken, this game actually costs $140 factoring in the price of the joy cons. The worst decision Nintendo has made with a game on switch so far. So disappointed.

    @SMetaldave64 I do know that Final Fantasy XIV director Naoki Yoshida has had multiple meetings since “Nintendo NX” was first announced. Those meetings centered around his list of pre-requisites for their eventual Online Service in order for him to bring FF14 to the Switch. Maybe relevant?

  • HouMoogle
    Houston Moogle (@HouMoogle) reported

    @SMetaldave64 From what I have read, Nintendo’s skeletal Online Service was considered a starting point as they phase more functions in once those new functions are deemed safe for the family-friendly infrastructure they seek. They want it to be much more child-safe than PS4 / XB.

    @ROBandGB tell that to people who pay 50 bucks a month for barely 10 mbits up speed in several states in the US, or people with that exact situation, several systems and only ever having problems with Nintendo. Yes, paying a fortune for 200mbps upspeed certainly helps, good ******* point.

    So I had some Amazon gift card money to blow, so I decided to get Nintendo Switch Online to play some NES games with a friend. It. Is. Garbage. Soooo much lag, constant pop ups TELLING us that there's lag, its borderline unplayable. @NintendoAmerica you guys should be ashamed.

    i still can't believe there are people who are actually upset at nintendo for having to pay for online services. like how cheap can you be that you can't part with $20 a year for a service that's definitely worth way more than that

    Also why do I always get the shit chargers on my team? Why does every other team get the ******* pro eliter and I get the bamboozler who doesnt know how a ******* charger works? Anyways another game with a disconnect. I guess nintendo thought I was winning too many games so. Bed.

    @juan0tron Feel you right there, that's a fear that I'm extra scared of losing tbh. I do hope that Nintendo can find their own way to fix through this since I sie with the belief that they do understand complaints (as exemplified by the improvements that Spla2n got in the new update)

    I just honestly can't get over this. Right when I'm giving @Nintendo props, I turn around and oh yeah, they're still stuck on their stupid gimmicks and bad quality of life issues. Here I was thinking they learned their lesson after MP 9/10 with gimmicks, but nooooooope.

    It's so sad to see kids on Splatoon 2 now that can't play online with their friends anymore due to the Nintendo Online service. If there's anything to criticize Nintendo about it's making their games inaccessible to those who enjoy it the most.

    @NintendoAmerica should hop on this #bowsette train to help with their sales. Bowsette starts sponsoring the Nintendo Switch Online service. Depending on your subscription level grants you a Bowsette Icon you can use for your Profile. That idea is free Nintendo. Free.

    It baffles me that Nintendo STILL allows people to super jump to teammates without dropping clams/the power clam. It’s so obviously a broken strategy with no way to stop it once they start jumping.

    @SMetaldave64 Labo Cardboard became more of a priority than the Online Service for Nintendo... At least we knew more about it waaaaay before it came out on 420 this year. Absolutely absurd.

    a sockpuppet account (@SockyMcPuppitt) reported

    @Copperblaster To be fair though, I think you were part of the minority using Miiverse the innocuous way Nintendo intended for people to use the service. I don't think it was worth destroying the whole platform for in order to save face, tho.

    @sevengranddad92 Sora’s owned by Square-Enix, and Nintendo obviously has no issues getting their permission (Cloud and the Geno/Chocobo Mii costumes), but I feel like Disney would be an entirely different beast. It’d be cool to have a Disney AT or something, but I think it’s highly unlikely.

    Nintendo didn't bother to backup my Undertale data but it DID manage to backup my data from my physical copy of Bayonetta 2 that I haven't even ******* started playing yet. The glitch is frustrating but I get that they happen. But this online service is such a ******* joke.

    @Kenji35Kt @I_DO_JUEGOS I fail to see how you don't understand it. Nintendo had the right to sell their old games, just as I have the right to play games no longer being sold. The problem is that to protect the few, they are sacrificing the many. Get it?

    @KendallRaeOnYT If u do get a Nintendo switch, i suggest buying a screen protector. I work at gamestop and I've had customers tell me that their switch dock can sometimes scratch the screen when u take it out of the dock. I haven't had a problem with mine but just letting you know!

  • mrb1138
    Mr. B (@mrb1138) reported from Parma, Ohio

    @Kenji35Kt @I_DO_JUEGOS It's really not. They did none of the front end work to get the emulation working. They did none of the coding, to me that's far more the definition of stealing. Nintendo wants to make you pay 4 stuff you already own/bought. If you fail to see the issue w/ that I can't help ya.

    @mightyfruitcake Not that I'm hopping on the "I'm unhappy with Nintendo switch online & have to pay for things bandwagon." But, I mean come on we're paying for the service right? So, we should at least have the video capture ability across the board now!
