    @Dat1Nobody @MegaWaffle i agree with waffle in that its a made up problem to fit a solution of something that doesn't fit either way you can put realistic details on cartoony characters but you cant take the cartoon out of the cartoon like the Nintendo renders of mario characters do it right

  • cutestcosmiccat Cosmic Cat 🐈‍⬛ (@cutestcosmiccat) reported

    @Coridash_24 whether or not Nintendo actually did it, Youtube still needs to fix their god awful system lol. it does sound like there are inconsistencies in this story tho, and naturally some people want to actually know what's happening

  • coulditjustbeme Hey Fill Hey 🤜 💙 💛 🤍 (@coulditjustbeme) reported

    @GMPstretford 11? Hotel? Room service? Maybe a pool? Cable TV? Nintendo Switch?

  • chrisds_ Chris (@chrisds_) reported

    @khaIeesii_ you can send them to nintendo and fix them for free

  • Yung__Tone23 EST. 9️⃣1️⃣🖤 ♍️ 🖤 (@Yung__Tone23) reported

    If I have to fix my son Nintendo switch one more gah damn time 😒😤

  • F00261500 F (@F00261500) reported

    @_electronicCash yes, is there no copyright issue for you? I mean I love them but I hope Nintendo isn't coming after you (or us)

  • pepsimuscles nellie knocks (@pepsimuscles) reported

    If Nintendo wanna make another game like this I hope they fix catching Pokémon in water or add fishing, it sucks so bad

  • Redheadreplica Roy @ VA-11 HALL-A (@Redheadreplica) reported

    @BlazinHopeZ If Nintendo just put their music on Spotify or some other place to legally have their music this wouldn’t be an issue. Pokemon releasing the DP soundtrack to download was a good start

  • Infam0usGh0st InfamousGhost👻 (@Infam0usGh0st) reported

    @BandaiNamcoUS fix the My Hero Ones Justice 2 save error on the Nintendo Switch 🙏🏻

  • sterophonick gba video antvenom (@sterophonick) reported

    @MOS_8502 If Nintendo made a GOG for the legacy content I would start buying my stuff there rather than fetching them from No-Intro... but they haven't done anything towards making an actually good service, NSO is more or less a spoonful of sugar to help the medicine go down.

  • ThisIsCSDX Sean G 🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍⚧️ #BLM #FreePalestine (@ThisIsCSDX) reported

    @The__Goomba Allegedly, the claims were from someone posing as Nintendo. Both times the guy went through copyright issues, too.

  • KyllienTS Kyllien Trailseeker (@KyllienTS) reported

    @BSKtheKing @Xboxxsgreen What is preventing Sony or Nintendo or tencent or embrace group from doing the exact same thing? It is a matter of scale. And presumably Sony would charge $180 to $240 a year for thier service. How long would it take for Sony to get 50 million subs? 70, 80?

  • citazworld mexicankles (@citazworld) reported

    My son broke his game n I wish I could just go drop it off at a Nintendo store n some dork could fix it

  • Cybernemic Nemi (stuck) (@Cybernemic) reported

    @_cckirby It is absolutely nintendo, several SiIvagunner members are on the record about this because Nintendo does this constantly to them as well. As much as false copyright claims are a problem, in this case people are just grasping at straws

  • sarcsausageroll Clint (Krabby Patty Era) (@sarcsausageroll) reported

    Nintendo, baby, you’ve got to do something about the way I can get stuck or down in a minuscule amount of water. Or the way Pokémon I’m riding just tumble down a cliff edge or miss a bridge by a few ******* pixels. And what’s with the lag in docked mode? Did nobody playtest?

  • dondisappoints your bestie, don (@dondisappoints) reported

    excited to take apart my nintendo switch pro controller to fix this awful drift instead of having to buy a new controller

  • DrunkSuperman3 Drunk Superman (@DrunkSuperman3) reported

    @GGMcAllen1138 Another problem I have with Nintendo is they shut down pretty much all Fan Made Games. Sega hires these people to make games for them.

  • Neaok11 The#1Yoshi (@Neaok11) reported

    @frobonetic Maybe if you played more Nintendo franchises you’d see this isn’t just a Pokémon problem!

  • BigOnAnime BigOnAnime (Currently Depressed) (@BigOnAnime) reported

    The problem with Nintendo is there was no unified account system, each system had a separate store. Ideally, games you purchased on the Wii could carry over to the 3DS, Wii U, and later the Switch, but Nintendo won't bother. Christ, you can't backup your saves locally to the SDC.

  • LukeRonhaar Luke Ronhaar (@LukeRonhaar) reported

    @ATVIAssist After you failed to help with my transaction issues for nearly 3 months despite repeated efforts, @NintendoAmerica solved it in 10 minutes. Thanks Nintendo!

  • BarxBarl Anti-horny Aktion (@BarxBarl) reported

    @vor0220 @hankgreen @donaldrsizemore I mean fair I guess, but if Nintendo actually wanted to do an auction style event for use of their IP it doesn’t seem like that would be an issue. The problem you’re describing seems to just be because Nintendo is not facilitating that.

  • XeoMafia Jeremy G. (@XeoMafia) reported

    @TheFallingStar @W1ckedshort @slr904 With Square, Sony is paying for exclusives. They have no problem releasing games on Xbox. With Atlus, they're choosing to avoid Xbox & release games on PlayStation & Nintendo consoles. Sega owns Atlus & has a partnership with Xbox so there's a chance they could come to Xbox soon

  • KorySzn Kory (@KorySzn) reported

    Just give us a free content update for a new row of characters to keep us going?… that’s all. Finally the most obvious and most hatable thing: Nintendo switch online. The service is miserable as we all know, people disconnect and it’s not a problem with our wifi if our Xbox

  • XxiKGixX 💫KG💫 (@XxiKGixX) reported

    @iMchad @TheTempFriend Exactly there is no problem with innovation. No problem with pushing the industry forward beyond hardware. Microsoft is doing this cause of Amazon google and Tencent. Not worried about Sony or nintendo cause those companies are coming including apple.

  • Foorbits79 Foorbits (@Foorbits79) reported

    @Hotgirlvideos69 Stadia was the best steaming service I’ve used in terms of tech so it would be cool if Nintendo got to use it.

  • nost_gaming john (@nost_gaming) reported

    Sony and Microsoft can pay billions to acquire companies, but Nintendo can't afford to license Super Mario RPG for the Switch's online service. C'mon.

  • docsquiddy doc (RAISED BY WOLVES IS BACK) (@docsquiddy) reported

    like, I explained why it would be ludicrous in games; that is not a solvable problem, period. Like, just the logistics of Disney, Nintendo, and Epic all trying to agree on a budget split for you to transfer your she-hulk skin from fortnite into a mario game is going to kill it

  • Asbeth17 Asbeth (@Asbeth17) reported

    The worst part is having to use a stick instead of the C buttons to shoot eggs, since sometimes the camera turns while shooting (shown above) which can cause you to miss, a lot. If Nintendo continues to improve their emulator, maybe they will reduce the input lag in the future.

  • random_pans random. (@random_pans) reported

    If Nintendo actually posted their ******* music on Spotify instead of occasionally releasing an incomplete soundtrack CD all out problems would be solved

  • wh4tsurnam3 Wh4tsurnam3 (@wh4tsurnam3) reported

    @NintendoUK Broken, lackluster attempt
