    @KimRN30 Anytime! 😊 If the card itself is still good, (and you don't mind wiping out any data already on it), following Nintendo's directions for formatting it should clear up any problems.

    @TheRealGlitchTV @SplatoonLag @NintendoAmerica @SplatoonJP if this is a one time issue, you have nothing to worry about, but Splatoon doesn't use servers, it is p2p, meaning all traffic goes directly between your router and everyone else in the match. there is no single host, so these issues are caused by the router dropping the signal.

    **** nintendo and their worthless ******* system and their worthless ******* internet. Every GOD DAMN day my switch disconnects from my internet randomly, and today it just decided not to come back. EVERY OTHER DEVICE I OWN ******* works with no issues. Every. Single. One.

    @LethalxMinx Well, maybe if you had it on switch it'll give you a reason to play lol. It has built in voice chat like Fortnite. That way you don't have to have their Nintendo online app or service.

    People who make up excuses for this are falling into their PR traps and are only part of the problem. I am calling out Nintendo Fanboys and Facebook lovers for this, but those are the two biggest problems; be vocal about their problems, and do not stand for them.

    Munyu (IT’S FRICKEN HERE ALREADY) (@doremylover) reported

    And Finally, @NintendoAmerica is NOT a monopoly, but they LOOOOVE to think they are with their "being different" mantra. Their service is poor because they do not think they have to compete with the other services.

    @DandyLion514 @NianticHelp @PokemonUKGo @Pokemon @NintendoUK I was transferring pokemon from my phone to my switch and while they were sitting next to each other, without touching them, there was a connectivity issue at the end of the transfer. Pokemon gone from phone, but not on switch.

    @DonaldMustard @Jazwares Please fix the framerate on nintendo switch. Do you know how many nintendo switch players are angry. You guys are a billion air company. Its not hard. Warframe is a less pop game and they porting it on switch and runs amazing and graphics are good. Fortnite on switch is terrible.

    @IntroSpecktive Nice video but one issue. Having all Nintendo is likely but unwise. Nintendo is trying to expand on adding 3rd parties to the Switch. NINTENDO ADDS ALL NINTENDO CHARACTERS. I think we'll a far share of 3rd party reps. At least two.

    @JimSterling I wrote about this very issue, and Nintendo's lack of a response. It's pretty disheartening seeing all these videos about the game, and people like me are unable to play it.

    Wondering if I should have my joy con replaced by Nintendo, or just buy new ones and sell the old ones. $40 for Nintendo to fix it, or $70 for a new set... I have terrible phone anxiety so calling Nintendo to set up a replacement is really hard...

    They released yesterday, for the Nintendo Switch, and yet we've already got quite a few models. I could download any of these right now, and even upload them to Roblox if I was bold enough to beg for legal issues to be sent to my inbox.

    @BilalPrinceAli @TheEmpBruh I consider Sony skipping E3 to be a problem with E3, not Sony. And I'd be saying the same thing if Nintendo or Microsoft skipped it. E3's steadily declined over the last few years and companies are starting to realize its better to host their own events for this stuff.

    Dear @NintendoAmerica please before you end your updating of @SplatoonNA I ask for two updates to Splatoon. #1, please allow bypass The Off the Hook. Dont need that everytime. Also, fix the back end to cloud save the game. It sucks losing everything if you get a new switch.

  • cyberrb25
    Cyberrb25 (@cyberrb25) reported

    @JonComms I think the issue is that reviewers post the code online, people like to hack into the games and neither Nintendo, TPCi nor Game Freak are fast enough to counter all the people trying to break into the games. Let's not forget Denuvo antihacking systems get broken into days.

    The Nintendo panel at #LisboaGamesWeek had plenty of criticism towards the Switch's online service. With Nintendo reps listening and kind of failing to respond to it. Embarrassing!

    @NintendoAmerica I CANT WAIT TO BUY YOUR PRO CONTROLLER OMG OMG Because you're joycons are literally the most defective part of the entire switch. Never have I ever had an issue with your controls until the 3ds circle pad and and the switch.

  • WritingZoroark

    @LucarioOcarina If Nintendo gave us a way to access these games this wouldn’t be an issue. However Nintendo can’t sell games with dead licenses and dead companies attached to them. Besides even if they tried they’d not get 12mil. Nintendo disappoint!

    Remember when your biggest problem used to be your Nintendo DS running out of charge when you hadn't saved in a while.

  • SDHero
    Justin Harwood (@SDHero) reported

    @midnight_te4 @JimSterling Sometimes Nintendo takes the wrong lessons from a success. They’re not alone in this, but their general trend towards stubbornness compounds the problem. “If we force them, they’ll see this is better.” And some games benefit from motion, but it adds nothing here.

    @DustinPuffs @LugiaBerry These games are not sold. There is no way for anyone to play these games without emulation. Nintendo are not "owed" anything and were not "stolen" from. The law is broken, because it's so ******* flawed.

  • screenplayjams
    Nathan (@screenplayjams) reported

    It's too bad that 99% of Wii owners weren't aware of the service, because it was truly the iTunes Store of retro console gaming. Having Commodore 64, Genesis, and Nintendo 64 games on there was pretty wild. It probably won't happen again.
