    @MrAtari3 I mean they could have Skipped this but this is the reason why it is costing more because to expand the service to games they don't own and people want to play it is going to cost Nintendo more to aquire the licensing. Some of the best N64 games are Microsoft owned now.

  • DMCA27952021 Daniel McArdle (@DMCA27952021) reported

    @BloxedRetro @Lavadoo4 Don't gamers not get it? The reason a "paywall" is added because Nintendo is paying additional licensing fees for Microsoft and Don't Forget MegaDrive is here also. Its Sega and Microsoft who owns games on this service and Nintendo isn't getting official games for free.

  • CABEZILLA142DXD Cabezilla 🎮 #ActiBlizzWalkout (@CABEZILLA142DXD) reported

    @CrashSpyroBanjo @DynamoSuperX You just proved what I said, people minimize the problem. It was a big part of the community, but most went silent about the problem once Sephiroth was revealed, when the ones who were speaking out were even a big part of the Nintendo fan base in general, not just Smash.

  • symbirdx Jen (@symbirdx) reported

    @RKRigney Still having an issue where matches are not counting on the Nintendo Switch. Not being granted XP/Stars. @RKRigney did the team ever look into it?

  • liviyyuh livia (@liviyyuh) reported

    i spent almost an hour yesterday terrified that i had broken this gamecube (which isnt mine), i switched to other outlets and i tried so many things turns out three outlets in my house (the ones that i tried) stopped working the gamecube is fine but im still gonna blame nintendo

  • ImperialYoshi Yashi 🇵🇪 🇧🇴 (@ImperialYoshi) reported

    @f_M_AJ_ When Nintendo decided to port a game too early and not polished some of the problems. Seriously, it felt like the port is so rushed.

  • mantmemoji man™️ (@mantmemoji) reported

    @ExpansionLord We’re forced to pay in exchange for an incredibly inconsistent online service and a couple emulators. Nintendo owns the most profitable franchise in the whole world alongside several extremely lucrative IPs and they fail to provide the bare minimum with their online service

  • golden_umbreon Golden Umbreon (@golden_umbreon) reported

    People are mad nintendo is charging more for their service for more games? Sorry the $5 upgrade will let you play games you'd have to buy for 20+ a piece? Or at best emulate them but not everybody has a PC

  • AccurstMaiden Valeria ❀ (@AccurstMaiden) reported

    Planned starting roster: -Nintendo: Mario Link Yoshi -Playstation: Crash Kratos (Another Playstation Rep, idk who tho yet, prob Spiderman) -Xbox Master Chief Banjo Cuphead -Sega: Sonic Kiryu Joker/Demi-Fiend

  • Jpofferz Hungry Hungry Hippos Munching on ur ***** (@Jpofferz) reported

    @Joeytehwriter It does when their base premium service is more expensive than game pass and offers a **** ton less. A limited number of retro roms vs game pass offering a bunch of current and even brand new games. It shows little effort on Nintendo’s end was done to sell it

  • Jpofferz Hungry Hungry Hippos Munching on ur ***** (@Jpofferz) reported

    @Joeytehwriter I’m gonna compare it to emulation cause that’s where the games Nintendo currently offer on their service are also available. Besides, if we did compare it to game pass that only further proves my point cause MS offer a larger more interesting library to stream for much less

  • Twinwar Twinwar (@Twinwar) reported

    @AnaAnsan3 @sstudabaker5 @TechNoir_Talks I can buy those on PC, PlayStation and Nintendo as well. There's no reason to buy the service. There's nothing exclusive to the service with the exception of the three games I mentioned.

  • blobvideoludic Blob Videoludic (ENG) (@blobvideoludic) reported

    Nintendo Won’t Drop Switch Price Drops in Europe and the Vault Space issue:

  • Jpofferz Hungry Hungry Hippos Munching on ur ***** (@Jpofferz) reported

    @Joeytehwriter @NightmareAku As opposed to telling people to be grateful for Nintendo offering a shoddy service with little to incentivize? I’m not even saying emulate, I’m saying they don’t currently have much to compete against it.

  • nott0no Seven (@nott0no) reported

    @MissMoenstyrwyn @GenterMarko @CraftyAdrian360 You legit sound like a Nintendo bootlicker. No **** I accept responsibility it's MY money, there are many people like me who has this same resentment towards this service but without it we can't play online. Exactly what choice did we have? I'm not complaining for the sake of it.

  • NightmareAku NightmareNinja 🛡⚔ Playing Miitopia! (@NightmareAku) reported

    @Jpofferz @Joeytehwriter You do know that people have been asking Nintendo to have all their games (even the bad ones) on the service?

  • NightmareAku NightmareNinja 🛡⚔ Playing Miitopia! (@NightmareAku) reported

    @Jpofferz @Joeytehwriter You do know that people have been asking Nintendo to have all their games on the service?

  • nott0no Seven (@nott0no) reported

    @MissMoenstyrwyn @GenterMarko @CraftyAdrian360 "idk it just kinda sounds like you're a baby and because you have no impulse control you're just gonna whine about giving nintendo money instead of NOT doing that" And how long will it take for just ME and INDIVIDUAL to not give money to a service I'm more or less have no choice-

  • GarettMeff Garett Mefford (@GarettMeff) reported

    @CraftyAdrian360 Gamepass gets updated regularly with tons of games and Nintendo’s first major update to their service is behind a paywall. If Gamepass started sectioning off games behind add on fees people really wouldn’t jump to their defense like this

  • RobNeedsAJob *Retro Rob* (@RobNeedsAJob) reported

    @redherring32 @1upRestorations Most likely you are correct. I know that nintendo as a company works on a mantra of continuous improvement and little waste. They would definitely fix boards that were populated incorrectly, and mine could be from later in the run after a change.

  • DianeThePunk DIANE the PUNK (@DianeThePunk) reported

    @Mechazawa If you're handy with a Y-tip screwdriver and a pair of tweezers, replacing it is ezpz. If not, Nintendo will probably fix it for free, provided you don't mind waiting a few weeks.

  • MegaSpeedRed Mega Speed Red (@MegaSpeedRed) reported

    @grotto_beasts @NPicker01 And thanks to that mentality. Nintendo Will keep searching ways to take more money from us, and TO NOT make their online service better. Companies aren't your Friends, you don't have to defend literally everything they do

  • pierce_exe Piercr (@pierce_exe) reported

    I may be in the minority but I have never had problems with Nintendo Switch Online that I don’t get with any other online service so I am perfectly fine with paying $20 a year for it and I’m fine with paying whatever the extra is for N64 and Genesis games too

  • MegaSpeedRed Mega Speed Red (@MegaSpeedRed) reported

    @CharlesChazen @CraftyAdrian360 Wow, nintendrones are really agressive when you critique their company. There's a difference between making money of products and literally trying to take money for bad services. Nintendo Switch Online sucks as a service, we're already paying for it, and we have to pay more?

  • dykeraccoon ⭐🦝🚀 (@dykeraccoon) reported

    i like the harvest moon game on nintendo switchs trial service rn but every time i play it i fall asleep. dunno if thats an issue with me or the game

  • DrewNM98 Drew the Nostalgia Main (@DrewNM98) reported

    Why are people literally arguing over a new Nintendo service that doesn't even have a price yet?

  • FrootyBiscuit ~ Frooty Biscuit (@FrootyBiscuit) reported

    @Bare96J @DynamoSuperX Not saying it's what they're going to do, just pointing out it's something they could do. If Nintendo think that this whole issue that's currently happening with Activision is bad PR they want to avoid, they have an option to back out of any choice that involve Activision's IP.

  • BigZ261 BigZ26 (@BigZ261) reported

    @BringBackBanjoK I don’t know why Rare would be involved Star Fox is a Nintendo franchise and character Krystal made her way to Smash, if the issue is General Scales then ok I can see a problem there but other then that it should be good to go.

  • mr_evaporation Fake Crash (Comms OPEN!) (@mr_evaporation) reported

    @strangelesbian I mean honestly I guess aiden is just lucky to be a Nintendo fan cause he can just pump **** out all the time ******* ever tryna make tweets like but for Crash Bandicoot

  • Vaenitas_ Vanitas (@Vaenitas_) reported
