    @HoloMeABirb imagine having a dumb brother who gets you in trouble and breaks his Nintendo switch 8 different times and still gets games and stuff

  • Rhubarb24103680 Rhubarb (@Rhubarb24103680) reported

    @chokoretoclouds Just calibrate your controls like Nintendo said. Nintendo’s always right. Always. Your drift is just a minor issue and barely affects your gameplay. Maybe if you can’t play splatoon while the camera whirls around at 500 mph, maybe you just suck at the game.

  • yarharcannon Salt & Vinegar (@yarharcannon) reported

    Capcom was to produce 5 new games exclusively for the Gamecube as a partnership deal with Nintendo under a promotion called "The Capcom Five" The issue is that they accidentally made the games too good and there was no way they could only keep them on one system.

  • Latios_2002 Latios (@Latios_2002) reported

    @BlueFurrBall [Granted, but at lease the modern pokemon are the best. but crash? why is he any good? he always has been a sub par game franchise. the only reason people like him was because they got a PS1 as a kid and not a Nintendo console.]

  • BarronAmethyst ⚡Mx. Frazzled⚡ (@BarronAmethyst) reported

    @NintendoAmerica: You can use all your Nintendo points for physical merch now! Except you'll pay $8.00 for shipping some stickers! And our site will NOT process any card you use on any browser! And that's not all! We'll also have you spend 1 hour on the phone to try to fix it....

  • MJMigliore (@MJMigliore) reported

    @MetalKatTV @PayPal @AskPayPal I had an issue similar to this last year when Nintendo was hacked. Had a coupke hundred dollars worth of charges made on an old Nintendo account that was linked to Paypal. From what I understand having an account linked tk an external service make it "not their problem" (cont)

  • Dvorzhzky Done (@Dvorzhzky) reported

    @HeadupGames Looks like nice horror. 😬 BTW link for Nintendo Switch version is broken.

  • ChartsJapan Video Games Charts (@ChartsJapan) reported

    [Week-end Poll!] Next week, Nintendo and Sony will share the nb of distributed consoles in Q4 2020 NSW may be above 12M (10.8M in 2019) whereas PS4 should drop from 2019 (6M in 2019) and PS5 has stock issue (3.4M in Nov) May NSW sell twice more than the combined sales PS4+ PS5?

  • stay_black16 StayBlack16 (@stay_black16) reported

    @DJK1NG_Gaming @JackmoveJohnny Platinum is developing both Babylon’s Fall and Bayonetta 3. I feel like this is more of a developer issue than a publisher issue. Nintendo and Square could be on their *** about it but at the same time let’s not rush a developer. We saw Cyberpunk...

  • Criszaledex_B Criss. A. H. Bojorg (@Criszaledex_B) reported

    @ErickADub Then now you get why people fear that decision. I mean it was always a Nintendo excludive so the problem itself is if it will get a sequel or not Also wished some franchises got tje same love

  • burstaffinity Fran 💚✨ (@burstaffinity) reported

    nintendo has solved the console problem with the switch lol

  • lukeyp95 lukeyp95 (@lukeyp95) reported

    Also tfw upgrade internet package to hopefully stop lag in Ultimate but literally no change because no one online owns a wire. THANKS, NINTENDO!!!

  • joshin904 josh (@joshin904) reported

    @SweepsMcCool JoyCons are quite literally trash. But because of their horrible build quality and Nintendo’s lack of a fix. -signed a huge Nintendo Fan Boi

  • caketality Dan (@caketality) reported

    @cdaro753 @asilcrxssing They added the ability to migrate your island to a new device recently! I think the only two problems are it’s a Nintendo Online perk and it’s only migration. I still wish I could swap between our big Switch and small one to work on my island. :(

  • isaiah_bb isi baehr-breen (its pronounced ‘izzy’) (@isaiah_bb) reported

    @hasanthehun although I believe it’s both legal and allowed by Nintendo’s terms of service to do this if you own the console and a copy of the game!

  • MoonRiiiver Queentta♡Bayo May Cry (@MoonRiiiver) reported

    @Dope_Danny @Nibellion Both franchise are good, and for what you said is totally wrong. they only issues that worries me is the capability of nintendo console itself nothing more.

  • Hemini17 Hemini (@Hemini17) reported

    @NintendoAmerica Your attention service by mail is completly sux, 16 days already and just got bot mails w/o a solution. Your eshop gets aproblem with adresses and u don't fix it. Spent platinum coins and now they wasted cos the code expired cos ur complet fault

  • DaceGamer Dacien 'DaceGamer' Felice (@DaceGamer) reported

    @DerekRumpler @NintendoAmerica @balanwworld Your reply reminded me of some things I'd heard about game that I forgot, the frame rate issues you mentioned, and also the camera causing characters to T pose, don't know how I forgot that. If those things aren't cleared up on release, I will definitely hold off on purchasing it

  • UnoriginalChris UnoriginallyChris (@UnoriginalChris) reported

    @hasanthehun I’m the opposite, I grew up playing Nintendo and still have problems playing with an Xbox/PS controller. It got a bit better for me but I still get those X and Y buttons jumbled up in my head all the time

  • 2shortmike Mike (@2shortmike) reported

    @yea_imAWSOME Recent Nintendo trends makes that actually believable, They been waiting till 2 months before a game come out and then flood with online marketing. But Platinum Games aren't new to development issues before, so we will see

  • honestduane (((Duane))) - 🧙‍♂️🖖🦁 (@honestduane) reported

    @NintendoAmerica I miss the old NintendoPower. My first magazine of it was the original DuckTales issue. I collected every one I could find. I would rather have the money now. I’m worried, because I think I grew up.

  • ThirtyVirus ThirtyVirus (@ThirtyVirus) reported

    fun fact: the first time I ever uploaded a video online was on Flipnote Studio, a service for the Nintendo DSI that required you to send a letter to their HQ to request permission to post.

  • ADHD_93 ADHD (@ADHD_93) reported

    @SecondaryWobl With online events there must not be incentive to really play ultimate incredibly seriously. Melee netplay is amazing so—as far as tournaments go, Nintendo sucks for their 10 frames of lag. Still in awe that coders made a far better online play than Nintendo...

  • Bitgengar Bitgar (@Bitgengar) reported

    @blazarforce @RobinhoodApp @NintendoAmerica any chance you could move stocks off traditional balance sheets and issue it as token so I can hold my shares on-chain encrypted with a private key for safety? Or maybe like a small portion of them for a test run. While I'm serious this also sounds ridiculous lol

  • LordKazuya1 Kaz | Disgaea 6 (ディスガイア6) Spoilers (@LordKazuya1) reported

    Half of AC's problem is that it is on a nintendo platform w/ controllers that don't work and the other half is that the game is bad so I can't wait to see the next one be Star Fox Zero levels of uncontrollable

  • DerekRumpler Derek Rumpler - Alkterios Games & (@DerekRumpler) reported

    @DaceGamer @NintendoAmerica @balanwworld It’s not even “visual issues” as you call them. The game chugs, drops frames, acts like it is going to freeze up or crash, etc. You can spend your money however you want but I think it is important to know. There are much better looking games on Switch that perform better.

  • jakedasenpai Black Super Saiyan 🥡 (@jakedasenpai) reported

    @MarkJoh29043971 4K isn't even the issue. It's more of finding cheap ARM hardware that can rival or be up there with the next gen or even current gen systems. Nintendo's best bet is to make the Switch the primary handheld and shift to x86 for a dedicated home console.

  • AaronANagy Aaron Nagy (@AaronANagy) reported

    @ValiantWatch This is tough. Many things I’d like but wouldn’t be able to afford like the eternal warrior axe, but I guess if I’m always on the lookout, I would have to be able to afford it. So I think for me it is older valiant Nintendo issues. I have a few and I buy them when I see them.

  • stay_black16 StayBlack16 (@stay_black16) reported

    @DJK1NG_Gaming @JackmoveJohnny So what happened with Babylon’s Fall? It’s not just a Nintendo issue.

  • DJK1NG_Gaming DJK1NG_Gaming - Crew Member of Edens Zero! 🇭🇹 (@DJK1NG_Gaming) reported

    @stay_black16 @JackmoveJohnny There a reason why Nintendo released Astral Chain first. To give Platinum Games more time. There a reason why he said forget about it for now and wait til it's reveal. Because they can't say or show anything. There never been any issue for them when they work with Nintendo.
