Such terrible rewards! Pll who received platinum was because they bought a ton of Nintendo game. So either they already have those, or if they don't it's because they were not interested! Crappiest reward so far.


Exactly. It's a conflict of interest: you got to platinum because you probably bought a ton of games, the majority of them likely Nintendo games. So why would Nintendo offer the games we either already bought, or didn't buy because we weren't interested enough? Luckily for me, I held off on getting a couple that I'm interested in.

It would have been better if we just got a certain amount of eShop credit or something, or even better, a free amiibo when they launch.

Oooh. Earthbound. I've been meaning to get that.

"Requires Platinum"

Well damn. I only have 500 coins.

EDIT: Nevermind, I have 90 coins worth of surveys to finish. Then I just need to download another game and *BOOM!* free Earthbound.

In my defense, I complained the last couple of years too.  Got a Zelda CD last year (mostly because all of the other stuff sucked) and I think I got a digital copy of Majora's Mask the year before that.  The reason is that they used to give away some pretty awesome stuff.  Also, doing all of those surveys and registering all of those games is work!  Yeah, Nintendo doesn't have to give us anything but at the same time, I've spent HOURS registering games over the past several years.  We sit here daydreaming about what Nintendo might give us (I was hoping for a giant Link from "Link Betweeen Worlds" to place on the wall in my game room.  At the very least, something that's not available anywhere else.  Some merch!  Instead, I get to choose a Nintendo game I didn't think was worth owning because I registered a shit ton of Nintendo software to earn it.

 

It's like going to Taco Bell because I love tacos and then getting a McDonald's cheeseburger for free.  If I wanted McDonald's, I would have gone there instead.  If I wanted Dr. Luigi, I would have purchased it and registered it by now!!  Hell, a lot of those 8-bit games were given for free already.  There's some great stuff available (That DKCR for 3DS is a MUST for anybody that doesn't own it yet) but to go Platinum in the first place means that you had to buy a ton of first party stuff.  Hell, Kid Icarus is available right now if you redeem 200 coins.  Why save for a year to buy a game that's available to somebody that's available for far less?

yeah I'd be lying if i said i wasn't slightly disappointed as i was hoping for some type of figurine...but i figured they wouldn't do that with the amiibo coming soon and what not . but i'd take a free game any day...even if i'm not that big of a donkey kong country fan(jungle beat>>>>>_____) im actually thinking between donkey kong, fluidity, dillon, and dr luigi and possibly game and wario but that game just looks like shit



im gold status so which game would you recommend, kid icarus, zelda II or ice climbers?

DAMN!



I don't even know how to react to this.. This is a joke right? Reggie is gonna jump out and yell "Surprise! Here's the real prizes!" right? If this is what Club Nintendo has become, I'm not even going to both with it anymore.
