Hardcore Gamer: Offering digital games as Club Nintendo rewards is a fine practice, but it seems that little to no effort went into selecting games that people would actually want to play.
So, you're excuse for Wario's Woods being bad is because it's not known well? That's really dumb. Anyway, someone should tell Nintendo to have Mega Man X on Wii U as a reward next. But that unfortunately won't happen.
They need to get a lot mpre stuff on the VC before they start doing that. I think they are much more likely to give the Wii VC versions becasue they know most people will end up upgrading to the Wii U VC version for $1-$1.50 so they can make something off the game. Im ok with that, but they need to hurry up and just plop a bunch of VC stuff out there. Its not like the SNES doesnt have a ton of classics that would sell like crazy. The trickle effect is stupid for these games. They dont all need room to breathe, just get them out there for frig sake!
Mario Golf is supposed to be one of the best GBC games ever made.
Dang, I should have got Starfox 64 or Super Punchout.
I ahd a feeling this would happen and snagged them both the other day. They cant give away all the great stuff every month! I have gotten a lot of classics this way though, so I am glad that Nintendo even does this. Its not like we get rewarded for buying games form any other company in this manner. Byut Ive got Marip 64, Mario Kart 64, 1080 Snowboarding, Super Mario RPG, F Zero GX, Super Punchout, and many more. Just hold onto those points cuz I bet there will be some good stuff next month!
HAHA, PlayAction Football! I so remember that game. they should have given out 10 yard Fight!
yea i played the hell out of PlayAction Football back in the day.
Play Action football will always be waterboy to Tecmo Super Bowl. Also, the player portrait of John Elway in Play Action made him look like he had one giant tooth. I've been waiting 23 years to make that comment.
The payoff was enormous.
I missed out on Mario 64 2 months ago. I have about 955 coins and nothing this month looks interesting to me, maybe Mario golf.
I scored Mario 64. Kinda pissed I didn't get on Starfox 64 or Super Punch Out. I was waiting to see what came up. I have about 400 coins.
Are n64 games playable on Wii u's yet? Would love to play Mario 64 on my gamepad if possible.
You can play them on Wii U through the Wii interface. Still, I'd rather play on Wii U to use the gamepad or pro-controller, and share screenshots. I figure when the N64 games come to Wii U, I can buy them for a discount since I already have them through Club Nintendo points. I just hope Nintendo doesn't say games bought with club points don't apply. That would suck.
I think Nintendo made an effort in choosing the games .... they made sure they were not giving away anything someone might pay for- Sometimes Nintendo would be better off not giving customer loyalty gifts at all- These type "give away s are supposed to be a way of saying "thank you" for being a good customer and spending your gaming dollars on our products when you could have chosen to purchase elsewhere or not at all- it tends to put a low value on the message- so they should either give items/games away that most people would appreciate or at least know the offerings were of value- or just say thank you and give nothing at all- Of course there are too many Nintendo fans that will defend Nintendo now matter what they do and it seems Nintendo uses them as a barometer of how they can and can't treat their customers- Release a $350 console almost no games for 9-10 months??? Sure why not- they will buy them, still love us and criticize anyone else who questions the decision- competition? What competition?
Wow you are seriously criticizing Nintendo because you dont like their lineup of FREE GAMES from Club Nintendo this month? Wow dude thats lame as hell. They have offered tons of great stuff AND its not like any other company is doing anything similar. They are FREE games you get for registering your products. I much prefer this over lame acievement/trophy systems that dont actually reward you for anything. Yeah. a bigger gamersocre so you can brag about how you beat a game for the 5th time on legendary! Wow dude, you are a gamer god! Lol, Go troll somewhere else, its high time this site gets a troll sweep!
