The Nintendo Network Hates ScrewAttack
Come on, you guys even inspired our site's name!
Screwattack: Not a porn site, no matter what Nintendo says.
What makes even less sense is when I signed up for Club Nintnedo, I wasn't allowed to use my real last name, which is Bostick. I don't even remotely see it there.
I understand that you guys want to have the name ScrewAttack to promote the site via the name. But sometimes you just have to compromise. Screw is a bad word so you have to settle with the next best thing instead: FuckAttack.
they came up with the name for it
try screwattack on jp or backwards
I'm not too upset about the blatant censorship, just challenges me to be wittier without cussing my ass off. <-- still a work in progress
That's funny because they accepted "BlackNerd"... try "BlackAttack" :)
yeah screwnintendo after i bought a 300$ console lol
It's probably because Screwattack is one of their words. I wouldn't be surprised if you can't get Triforce or Pikachu for your Nintendo ID
I don't think it's a trademark thing; it's probably just that they're blocking the word "screw" so we don't get folks using names like "ScrewNintendo" and "IScrewedYourMom"...
that was kind off funny
Y'know Craig, the Nintendo Network hating you for using the ScrewAttack name is really reminiscent of how two years earlier when you moaned about Guru Larry and UK Wez seemingly "using" the SA name for profit when they were making videos for Channel Awesome and Machinima. I'm just saying.
Yeah, that's a good one.
How about taking off the dot? Or just use something like CraigSA.
How about "ScrAttk HQ"?
I'm ok with SAHQ; pronounce it as 'sack'
Nintendo has always had laughable censorship, it made communications a bitch in Monster Hunter Tri, like take the following sentence:
"Avoid the dragons mouth after he bites."
Perfectly fine right? Apparently not, since it will come out as "Avoid the dragons mouth ***** he *****." Important piece of info in case of playing with newbies, right? Well good luck having to circumvent the censorship crap just to tell em how not to die.
I kinda wonder what the alternative name would be.
I find it more likely that Nintendo just treats Screwattack as a trademark since it's from Metroid.
Have you tried other methods? Like Screw_Attack or Screw-Attack? You really should contact Nintendo about this...
