NOA Club Nintendo Gold And Platinum Prizes Revealed

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - NOA Club Nintendo Gold And Platinum Prizes Revealed

Are you fucking kidding me Nintendo? One year you're giving me the physical soundtrack to Ocarina of Time, and now you're just giving me the same sorts of games you offer all the time on Club Nintendo? Only digital rewards? No physical? Huge disappointment. Fuck you Nintendo. Getting real sick of this Club Nintendo bullshit. They used to have tons of physical rewards available all the time, now they have a small handful that they haven't restocked in months. Now not even the Platinum reward is physical? This is bullshit.

Zelda II is heads and shoulders above the other two. Ice Climbers is feet and toes below the rest.

Most of the Platinum games aren't usually offered via Club Nintendo, to the best of my knowledge. But to your larger point: I suspect we're seeing a drawdown in the Club Ninteno system entirely, i.e. they've concluded that the feedback and benefits they're getting from the program don't really justify the trouble and expense, and thus they're going to end the whole thing in a few years. They've stopped offering as many physical goods over the past year or so, and even offered the Luigi's Mansion figurine as a coin prize when it likely would be a Platinum reward in years past.

If I'm correct, most folks in this thread should rejoice, because it means you won't have to fill out the forms anymore!!!

I'd say Zelda II out of those. However, I highly reccomend 3D Classics: Kid Icarus which Club Nintendo is currently selling for 200 coins. Its really a ton of fun, and the 3D effect plus the updated backgrounds make the game really pretty.

No need to worry yet, it's just a prediction based on what I'm seeing. As for whether it would be replaced if it did go away... *shrug*?

chose dkc returns 3d as my award.....never played the wii version after hearing about waggle to roll plus i wasnt a fan of the original on the snes (only liked jungle beat which i only played with the gc controller ...dont remember what i did with my drums everyone else seems to hate)... liked dkc trpical freeze tho especially the music so i decided what the hay



I wonder if nintendo's financials weren't so lackluster in the past year if the rewards wouldn't have been better this time around.

I will.  Remember you.  The reason I even started was because I was giving codes away and somebody else got a really awesome prize.  I'll donate to you.
