  • taxderm naman? tamfook (@taxderm) reported

    A nintendo switch might fix my life

  • CressOfLight David Dunlop (@CressOfLight) reported

    @NextGenPlayer I feel Sony needs at moment, A good FPS Campaign Multiplayer game with a Character in a cool suit like Xbox Doomguy + Masterchief & Nintendo's Samus + bring back classic IP Mascots Sir Dan + PaRappa to make up the loss of Crash & Spyro as Sony needs more non human like Ratchet.

  • JamesTheFoxe James The Fox🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿🏳️‍🌈 (@JamesTheFoxe) reported

    @Omegawyrm76 @DestinLegarie Well the only games Activision ever published on Nintendo switch were 1 skylander game, 2 crash bandicoot games and I think 1 spyro game. Not much compared to the PlayStation side so its going to be fine

  • Synersist Synersist (@Synersist) reported

    @GEISTexe Ahh Nintendo…always a problem. Their whole system is borked. I’ve got two accounts one for my 3DS and one for my Switch and both are different as one won’t allow me to connect to Switch

  • acnhleslye Leslye (MaeLynn) (@acnhleslye) reported

    @_mgames_ connect it like the joy cons its still worth it for the tv because of the drifting. also real quick.. nintendo lets you send them in for free "fix" the drift but idk if it even works so i would definitely look into that and see if they can do anythijg avout it for you. ♡

  • Leoheartlight Larx3476 (@Leoheartlight) reported

    @shadowoops @EpicGames @FortniteGame i having the same blue light when i was on Nintendo switch was first then i was on PlayStation it also had the same blue and yesterday on pc i have the same blue!!! So please fix it!!!!

  • BroTheEh Bro (@BroTheEh) reported

    NSO Expansion price is revealed: "wtf this is so overpriced and gross" Banjo and Kazooie is revealed for the before stated gross subsciption: "Wooow this is great I love playing banjo n kazooie on nintendo switch!" Yeah they arent gonna fix anything about it

  • grifkid Rob (@grifkid) reported

    @ItsMeRossP This is actually a technical issues as far as I’m aware. Down to the USB. Not sure on the exact term. But this is why the PS and Nintendo have the same portal pad in Lego Dimensions and Xbox has their own. Also why many headsets have two options. PS/xbo. No clue why.

  • Bass_PHOX Bass_PHOX (EN) Mario Kart Fanatic, Speedrunner. (@Bass_PHOX) reported

    @NintendoEurope. I feel like this should be said. I updated to version 13.2.1 of the nintendo switch firmware recently, and noticed it likes to crash a lot more when I leave my switch docked in sleep mode. One question: Why does it crash in the first place? Another: Why in sleep?

  • patricknotirl patrick (@patricknotirl) reported

    nintendo wii broken

  • NintendoShame Nintendo Shame (@NintendoShame) reported

    It's been 186 days since the last game was added to the Nintendo Switch Online service

  • BeyondBones44 Kyl or Rey (@BeyondBones44) reported

    @lookitslozz @tyronerodriguez @edmundmcmillen Great, so two dlc for...the exact same content and game, no communication from Nicalis, and byers with the wrong version who have to deal with Nintendo customers service.... Yeah, I'm also really excited to exchange with Nintendo customers service.

  • RealDavidFuller David A Fuller (@RealDavidFuller) reported

    @StarkyLuv73 @DestinLegarie Ok on a serious note Atari completely almost killed the gaming industry when they released a crappy game ET back in 1982 which cost the great video game crash of 83. Nintendo saved video games in America 1985

  • summoner712 summoner71 (@summoner712) reported

    @UnfazedWil @DoWhatYouDo6 @Kmega4 Yes their engineers clearly had trouble doing it or Playstation didn't value their legacy as much. BC has not been a staple on playstation. Ps4 couldn't do anything, ps3 had it on a few limited models, PS2 did BC properly. Nintendo BC hasn't been great either.

  • PurplePadlock 🍅 Jake (@PurplePadlock) reported

    I've seen this a lot over the past few days and I'm just.... the IP gets multiple new pieces of merchandise a year; Banjo was added into Smash; Banjo was one of the main selling points of *Nintendo*'s dumb Switch Online service thing. How is this dead???

  • PurplePadlock 🍅 Jake (@PurplePadlock) reported

    "Well now that Microsoft owns them, Crash and Spyro are going to be as dead as Banjo is!" the Banjo-Kazooie IP is more active than like 90% of the franchises that Nintendo and Sony actually own what are you talking about Rare doesn't want to make a new game but it's not dead

  • elproffo Ghoulish Proffo in Perdition (He/Him) (@elproffo) reported

    @SarahHamstera Nintendo first party titles have been overpriced for a long time. The issue is that even used they seem to hold they're value.

  • LoukaThePro08 Louka De Prest (@LoukaThePro08) reported

    @kerfuffle_SMO Ok but that doesn't necessarily mean it's not a glitch. Disturbing a cycle could be seen as a glitch bc Nintendo didn't want a bullet stuck in there. I couldn't replicate this anymore after I did it. (Also sorry for late reply)

  • GTcreyon creyon (@GTcreyon) reported

    @BiernackiJeremi @63Redux they only take action on: 1. pokemon games 2. games that are similar to real nintendo games (including upcoming ones) 3. games that try to earn money SM63 Redux fits none of these categories, so we're safe. also, nintendo doesn't sue fangame devs, they just issue a takedown

  • SatomiMakise vis! (@SatomiMakise) reported

    @frogkaro not only has that never happened, but nintendo literally cannot C&D eb fangames as they do not own the series, only the games themselves. oddity changed their name to avoid these types of problems in the future in fear of getting one, seeing as the meme was in full swing by then.

  • NintendoGameBot Nintendo Sequels Bot (@NintendoGameBot) reported

    NIntendo Labo Classic Crash

  • GEISTexe #L5R GEIST ▵▿▵ (@GEISTexe) reported

    I still can't believe after almost 2 months, Nintendo still hasn't sorted out the email issue on my old account or even contacted me. That's £200-300 worth of content and 100+ shiny Pokemon forever locked.

  • LifeoflinkH Lifeoflink Hyrule (@LifeoflinkH) reported

    @danielBlake1993 @NintendoAmerica @videogamedeals Only partly fixed. There's still a little room of improvement and the fog issue.

  • D0MXNXQU3 Fezco's Lawyer (@D0MXNXQU3) reported

    I have become the thig I hate. People up at 2 am on Youtube watching **** and feeling like they're experts. I'm watching some guy fix 23 broken (Nintendo) Switches like "I can totally do this" 💀💀💀

  • Noelmenclature Noogle (@Noelmenclature) reported

    Pay again for another repair. Bummer. So I went to the chat option and explained my issue to a Nintendo customer service person. They were super helpful. They got my repair set up (for free) because yeah that's not supposed to happen. Good job nintendo.

  • sturavragedude WeEdZ0r (@sturavragedude) reported

    @sunshine12tan @SSJCabby The problems ruin it so much that's the thing, xenoverse 2 was the first Nintendo switch game i got and I played it so much but the problems just messed it up I can appreciate you for admitting that the problems hinder the experience

  • KDNNRS Katie-Ann MeKill (@KDNNRS) reported

    Nintendo switch should drop a whole catalogue of GBA games for a 9.99 a month subscription service, idk why this isn’t a thing yet.

  • HalX2K some guy (@HalX2K) reported

    Was looking at transferring Pokemon and stuff and this series just seems like more trouble than it's worth. Nintendo is so ******* stupid lol

  • brndnxxx table (@brndnxxx) reported

    @chattiecattie_ @NintendoUK yeah centaurs have arms, why’d they remove them ://////// that’s the highest issue is no arms,it looks incomplete if it had arms you’d be right, but since it doesn’t it’s literally just a horse w 9 tails and mumps
