  • creeperman129 Creeperman129 (@creeperman129) reported

    @Team_SMSD Sadly I don't know if I'll be able to repay the monthly Nintendo online service since that's mainly up to my parents, but if so then yeah, Smash is fun

  • DJCyaniide miguel (@DJCyaniide) reported

    @kirby0w0 Also input lag doesn’t help. Nintendo needs to fix Smash Online

  • BCMediaPlayer Ben Curtis (BC MEDIA) (@BCMediaPlayer) reported

    @GamerGuyd7Aces @thegeekcritique That had a few level design issues, bad writing that erased Sonic's character, and power-ups that replaced Sonic's natural moveset. Lost World was a Mario Galaxy knockoff that threw away a proven formula because they wanted to appeal to Nintendo fans, being a Wii U exclusive.

  • DionteOfficial Quing Dee (@DionteOfficial) reported

    @noobde @NetherRealm @tylerlansdown @NintendoAmerica I’m playin #MK11 on Switch and having major server issues. Someone needs to fix this.

  • jayZER0_ jayZER0_ (@jayZER0_) reported

    @breathofthelyle Not to mention the biggest draw for MK now is fighting people online, and I'm sure on all platforms it requires premium paid bullshit PSPlus or Nintendo online like Smash.. I'm not paying for online service after paying for the ******* game just to play online..

  • DirtyBirdLord Lord Hudson (@DirtyBirdLord) reported

    Can't download my #MK11 because of an error that keeps popping up about corrupt data on my Switch #pissed @NintendoAmerica @NinSwitchNews

  • ArchDemon64 Daisuke Yamamoto (@ArchDemon64) reported

    @CranBoonitz @BigHailFan @xQuestionSleepx @WarmSafflina @Nintendo @NintendoAmerica That's why the suicide rate is so high among them. Media won't tell you this cause its not part of the narrative, but high end studies do. Most post op people aren't happy and many wish to move back. I don't think Trans Pride is the answer, I think there is a deeper issue.

  • Thejman5683 Thejman5683 @ LOVING TWEWY’S SOUNDTRACK (@Thejman5683) reported

    I might fix the some of it and Yes I did "borrow" one of the photos from Nintendo everything and I'll replace it with my own screen shot

  • ricostacos408 Anthony Silva (@ricostacos408) reported from San Jose, California

    @NintendoAmerica @NintendoSwitchC you guys really need to fix the USB ports on the switch. Was having major stick drift issues with my gc controller until I switched USB ports. Plz fix the usbs

  • Ty1596 🌙Truth (@Ty1596) reported

    Nintendo gotta get that issue solved

  • Kliff_Underson Manadono (@Kliff_Underson) reported

    @Gear_Project I mean it has to be the issue. if the cost of making and distributing a physical game can't be clearly outweighed by net revenue, especially a non-nintendo game, it won't happen. doesn't stop you importing a copy from hobbyboi or jmart or whatev.

  • SourBulba BulbaSour (@SourBulba) reported

    Ok, now I see all the problems people have with Nintendo's online servers. Even though me and @NGameTheCube had good internet, since we are on opposite sides of the (same) country Smash lagged to the point of being unplayable. Also, the arena crashed three times with (1/2)

  • SourBulba BulbaSour (@SourBulba) reported

    @NGameTheCube @ActualAero Yeah, Nintendo's online is just being terrible. We were playing fine but a random communication error occurred for no reason. Before then the game was just refusing to let us play

  • megamattssb MM (@megamattssb) reported

    @RoninX1819 "Dang Nintendo needs to fix online!" "Naw they shouldn't bc it's a slap in the face to all those who went through it's garbage"

  • Chaosis2slow 🌸rosemary🌸 (@Chaosis2slow) reported

    @MalachiteTiger @MagusDeluxe @AngryExpo @LonelyGoomba it's not nintendo's responsibility to fix or care about that. it's just how things are right now.

  • thirstycradily_ Thirsty Cradily V (@thirstycradily_) reported

    @KelKidman @Anthony31280437 @jdwitherspoon @NintendoAmerica Ive tried this its not working for me

  • AsianFilmist Ray Arcega (@AsianFilmist) reported

    so the cost for nintendo to fix my switch is about 16000 JPY (roughly half the cost of a new system). damn, unplanned spending, but gotta do it.

  • MixedNutsMikey Mixed Nuts Mikey (@MixedNutsMikey) reported

    Smash Bros recently updated to version 3.0 and @NintendoAmerica @nintendo refused to fix the massively broken aspects of the game. Now all the sudden ledge grabs don't work at random. Input lag is still bad. Online still miserable. No accountability. It is infuriating.

  • Melanated_Mona Lady Mona Of House Thickness (@Melanated_Mona) reported

    @MyTimeAtPortia Having a issue where notifications freeze on screen. Nintendo Switch.

  • ann_boger Ann Boger (@ann_boger) reported

    @AmbassadorDopey @Xbox @XboxSupport Oh I will. But I shouldn’t have to. Any customer should be able to get answers by a real person within minutes to an hour. Any issues I’ve had with Nintendo have been resolved within 2 hours—and it’s in Japan. And I spoke with a real person. This is so not cool. Worst CS ever.

  • OfficialFatalZ Fatal Z (@OfficialFatalZ) reported

    @SMetaldave64 Well I know what they won’t be showing. Gamecube games on the Switch. Nintendo 64 games on the Switch. Switch Themes. A better online service.

  • shiftposting SHiFT 🗲 (@shiftposting) reported

    @kaywayz The tweet is obviously directed toward the community capable of changing how it plays, not toward Nintendo to issue a balancing patch

  • kreweducaps Krewe du Caps (@kreweducaps) reported

    I just blew on our good luck puck like a Nintendo cartridge because it’s not working as well as it did last game

  • TriFishNX TriFishNX (@TriFishNX) reported

    [Insert new smash character here] is broken! I can't beat them and they need to be nerfed! I can't believe Nintendo would release a character this overpowered! 2 months later when they get a buff: Finally! Maybe now I can finally win a damn match...

  • c64club PDX Commodore Club (@c64club) reported

    @MrATM_ Nintendo still makes money hand over fist with SMB with their online service for Switch, so they won't be releasing any rights to the public domain for a long time if ever.

  • TheFizzWizz1 TheFizzWizz (@TheFizzWizz1) reported

    @SatomiiSenpaii Nintendo are allowed to regular and moderate their online service however they please. A lot of times fans put them in a ‘damned if you do, damned if you dont’ situation. Just respect the company who gave us this and play the game. That’s all were here for in smash, to have fun.

  • Druhim Blando Calrissian (@Druhim) reported

    @ChrisLowery1991 @MeeMawPhillis @WarmSafflina @Nintendo I don't give a **** about debate. Debate doesn't do fuckall as you're demonstrating all too well. It's just a tactic to pretend both sides of an issue have merit instead of being direct and honest about what a **** you are.

  • SeekerofBlood Bloodseeker141 (@SeekerofBlood) reported

    I love that it takes nintendo half a ******* year to put joker in the game and yet his hitboxes are so broken, not the good OP broken either. Its ******* ridiculous. Get ******** back to work sakurai and fix this bullshit!

  • SeekerofBlood Bloodseeker141 (@SeekerofBlood) reported

  • sgtM4ng0 sgt.Mango Garcia (@sgtM4ng0) reported

    @sapphicmoonlite @wristonicee That doesn't sound like much of a Nintendo issue, but more of a user issue. I don't see why people are upset that they're getting temporarily banned for breaking the rules. I don't agree with a lot of the rules, but dip shits left right in sideways swear that I'm the problem.

  • sebulr Mr Pink eyes (@sebulr) reported

    Today I have mostly been playing final fantasy 7. Unfortunately not on my switch. It is broken, and heading back to Nintendo for repairs tomorrow

  • WyattSalazar Uncritical Retweet ☭ (@WyattSalazar) reported

    nintendo should make a cart racer with the roster theyve developed for smash to compete with sega all star racing. super crash bros

  • DainesJacob Jacob Daines (@DainesJacob) reported

    @NintendoAmerica fix your servers or stop punishing people for losing connection! I got disconnected from a match when my WiFi is working just fine on everything, including my switch, because your servers couldn’t handle it, and now I can’t play for an hour and 4 minutes. #bull

  • and_tanks Tanks Gaming and Entertainment (@and_tanks) reported

    Sorry I have not been active for a while I am dealing with some personal issues and it can be very hard. I deal with a lot, please be patient...the Nintendo Switch Review is almost there!!!

    @FortniteGame PLEASSEEEE MAKE NINTENDO SWITCH PLAYERS MATCH UP WITH PPL OTHER THAN NINTENDO AND MOBILE THIS UPDATE RUINED THE GAME FOR NINTENDO SWITCH PLAYERS THAT CAN ACTUALLY PLAY THE GAME FIX IT AT LEAST FOR DUOS AND SQUADS

  • renanbrum_arts Renan (@renanbrum_arts) reported

    @noobde Please fix Cassie's belt bag on Switch that's floating out of her body in every transition of cutscene to fight, and the hair also is to bright in fatal blow in general. #MK11 @NintendoAmerica @NetherRealm #NintendoSwitch

  • LEMONNYYY LEMONNYYY (@LEMONNYYY) reported

    @NintendoAmerica @NintendoVS i pay money for your online services. i am not getting my moneys worth playing this lackluster online for smash bros. please fix it.

  • KoopaSsbu KoopaSSBU (@KoopaSsbu) reported

    @Nyx1200 @CasperPichu Oh, I would hope they don’t. I’m not in favor of banning the character by any means, I’m just disappointed in the programming at play here. I’m sure they’ll fix it, but then again Nintendo doesn’t always care about competition nor the issues that surround it.

  • theguywitmemes Jacob Reed (@theguywitmemes) reported

    @RayNarvaezJr Nintendo switch with smash and whatever Nintendos online service is called so I can play with my friends XD

  • VenusQueenEJ VenusQueenEJ (@VenusQueenEJ) reported

    @nekocheebu @JPOmega_ @NintendoVS @NintendoAmerica I understand that those things can happen, I'm luckily fortunate enough to have a very stable internet connection so I've never had that issue, but these disconnects only happened when we were losing so I'm pretty sure it wasn't accidental.

  • JonnyModlin Jonny Modlin (@JonnyModlin) reported

    Please fix Cassie's belt bag on Switch that's floating out of her body in every transition of cut scene to fight, and the hair also is to bright in fatal blow in general and all visuals, etc. #MK11 @NintendoAmerica @NetherRealm #NintendoSwitch

  • averaoxi Averaoxi (@averaoxi) reported

    I'd rather Nintendo actually continue supporting their older titles more properly, instead of forcing people to pay for a generic online service

  • gamerglade Chris (@gamerglade) reported

    @MrCabanaNerd I enjoyed they guy's content more than 99% of all the Nintendo yters because of his editing skills. And tbh life is to short for me to have an issue this long after his massive screwup provided that he actually makes an effort to be genuine. I've seen worse on twitter lol.

    @mombot @Megamandad @WarmSafflina @Nintendo In which a terrible person refers to fundamental human rights as a pet issue. Yikes, you're just the worst person.

  • Isagamboa127 Isa (@Isagamboa127) reported

    @hylinus @babyyooandi Vero talking about videogames when just last month she said Crash Bandicoot was a Nintendo game

  • DougiePutscum Doug Jay Putnam (@DougiePutscum) reported

    The only thing I lost during this person hacking my email, psn, and Nintendo account was a $30 fee to stop a check to somebody who tried to scam me BECAUSE I WAS TRYING TO FIX THE FIRST PROBLEM. I can't complain now though because I kept my money and have all my accounts back!

  • Daniel328DT Daniel Ray Torres DT (@Daniel328DT) reported

    There is a bug happening right now for Custom Stages in Arena.There were instances I selected my custom stage, and it would pick a custom stage of mines instead of the other player picking theirs and accompanying their music choice. Please fix this. @NintendoAmerica

  • alekindyk steve  galaxius (@alekindyk) reported

    @BookishDoki @98Designers @WarmSafflina @Nintendo @NintendoUK nobody cares about your problems, that's why you're seeking attention like this, people care about the machinations that created you

  • chiefostriche steve mitchell (@chiefostriche) reported

    i think i got ripped off. i purchased a code for a 3 month membership for nintendo switch online. but when i entered the code, they gave me an error code that the code i entered is not recognized. i'm so damn pissed right now.

    @Toadused2stink @Gimfigle @JakeIsEarly @Dededecide33 @jukaaay @Nintendo @NintendoAmerica @NintendoEurope It's almost as if having others demean you constantly for just existing can cause serious emotional issues, you transphobic blowhard.

  • BigSnake09 Alex Doran (@BigSnake09) reported

    @NintendoAmerica fix jokers counter it’s way too good

  • DeclawedBoy K. Sean (@DeclawedBoy) reported

    @SatomiiSenpaii I think there are good reasons to be extremely critical of Nintendo’s stance on this issue. But perhaps a better approach might be to write to Nintendo on the importance of representation and provide examples of how it can be done well in a way that isn’t cheap and exploitive.

  • BreathOfMint MintBreath (@BreathOfMint) reported

    @UndrDogGaming @SatomiiSenpaii The whole point is that if a service is used for something, it is expected that it is used for that purpose. I think it should be a talking point regarding the rules Nintendo puts out, but something as unclassy as making a blank stage with text stating “___ RIGHTS” isn’t right.

  • DogResidue24 bottom of the barrel (@DogResidue24) reported

    @mkicon @KwinsiiJongs @S2LSOFTENER @SEGA im thinking launch trailer on nintendo's youtube channel. sega wouldn't collaborate with a magazine issue that comes out in three days to announce puyo champions if they didnt want to announce puyo champions
