Club Nintendo - Star Fox 64 | oprainfall

Good news for Club Nintendo fans today. Coming off a somewhat lackluster Platinum reward offering, Club Nintendo┬áhas upped their game and are now offering 8 virtual games instead of the usual 4 until September 7th. They range pretty widely, so I’m going to name them starting with the least expensive to the most expensive. Here goes.

Pretty good list. I’m sure some will jump at the chance to get Star Fox 64 for their Wii U (even if it’s just through Wii Mode), and fans of puzzle games will no doubt jump on Dr. Mario Express and Puzzle League Express. For classics, you don’t get much better than Super Mario Bros. 2. The rest are a toss up, but either way it’s nice to see some better variety. Now if they can just throw us more tempting prizes for the next Platinum/Gold reward, I’ll be ecstatic. Until then, go get yourself some free games!

  • Tyrannikos

    After the last Platinum offering, I’m done with NA Club Nintendo. The offerings just aren’t worth the time to me anymore.

      They gain more value/money with the surveys we fill out, than we get with the free digital crap.

    • Joe Miskell

      I got Donkey Kong Returns 3D, i don’t think that’s a dud.

    • Tyrannikos

      I’m happy for you. Unfortunately, I bought that game and already had it put towards my Platinum status. That’s the problem with the big rewards we just had – many people likely bought many of the available titles on their path to Gold/Platinum. If they were like me and had a 3DS, their choice of prizes was further limited.

      And, yeah, yeah – it’s free! I know. I’m not mad at Club Nintendo. I just don’t think they offer worthwhile prizes for my time anymore.

    They need to start offering game soundtracks, like in Japan, and more of those limited hardware things, like the gold wiimote/nunchuck. And plushies. Lots and lots of plushies.
