I personally got the three posters.
Anyone who gets Super Mario Land is kind of a chump. Isn't that game dramatically cheaper than all of the other 3DSWare/Virtual Console games on offer? And like, sure, Super Mario Land is kinda good for how totally nuts and not-Mario its levels are, but it's certainly not as phenomenally great as 6 Golden Coins, which is straight up ballertown.
I think I'll get the Majora's Mask soundtrack, because I love that game. Do they just have a warehouse full of Majora's Mask soundtracks left over from some decade-old promotion? Because that's such a random inclusion. Wouldn't the soundtrack of Wind Waker be more on-message this year, like the poster? Or hell, something Link to the Past-related, to fit with the 3DS sequel?
Maybe they are doing this to tease a new Majora's Mask?
Ah who am I kidding, that is way too clever for Nintendo.
I'm not satisfied with this years selection at all. =-( I'm severely disappointed. Damn it Nintendo! I might as well get the soundtrack from my least favorite "3D" Zelda game, because the games are shit, and the posters aren't really that great! I don't even collect posters! The calendar is a gold reward, and I'm a platinum this year. Thanks Nintendo for nothing!
The soundtrack or posters would be cool if I wasn't lazy and completed some surveys. Apparently if you wait a bit you can sell those things for a good wad of cash on eBay.
Since I'm Gold, I dunno. The only one of those games I don't have is Sakura Samurai, and that doesn't look very good. (Anyone have experience with this game?) Might get the calender or if I'm feeling generous give a game to someone.
I didn't even get gold this year. Kind of sad but oh well. I wouldn't have minded the Wind Waker posters.
Yeah, it wasn't a great year for Nintendo-published games (aka Club Nintendo Coins), at least as far as stuff I would ever consider buying. Lemme break it down, and hope someone appreciates it.
July 2012 - December 2012 was a barren wasteland, unless you were one of the few who was determined to get a launch Wii U and some games. Aside from that, there was a Prof. Layton (if you're not too burnt out on the series), and a Paper Mario (which is possibly the weakest Paper Mario because they simplified the battle system and really stripped down the world by basically only have one main town and not a lot of original, interesting party members or NPCs or enemies).
January 2013 - June 2013 was better, at least in terms of having solid 3DS games worth getting like Fire Emblem, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, Luigi's Mansion, and Animal Crossing. Wii U releases still pretty light, and maybe not worth getting (Game & Wario is good, and I guess it's cheap, but man, it's just not WarioWare).
Still, I only made Platinum because I got a 3DS in February (still don't have a Wii. Had I bought that last year or something, there really weren't enough games worth buying this year to come anywhere close to Platinum.
