    Well, whoop-de-doo when only a handful of games are deemed to be worthy of coins. As I wrote before, EVEN Twilight Princess GCN (which code I entered this morning) isn't recognized for coins. Fuck that.

    18. Mario Kart DS - 6/11/2008
    19. New Super Mario Bros. - 6/11/2008
    20. Big Brain Academy - 6/11/2008
    21. Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Blue Rescue Team - 6/11/2008
    22. Mario vs. Donkey Kong 2: March of the Minis - 6/11/2008
    23. The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess (Wii) - 6/11/2008
    24. Super Paper Mario - 6/11/2008
    25. Picross DS - 6/11/2008
    26. The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass - 6/11/2008
    27. Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn - 6/11/2008
    28. Super Mario Galaxy - 6/11/2008
    29. Super Smash Bros Brawl - 6/11/2008

    But I'm not going to complain, we are getting the items for FREE.

    I thought the surveys would be questions about the game to further prove that you own the game.

    This is a service to get people to buy new games. Why would Nintendo offer bonuses for systems it no longer supports? makes no sense.

    There is a list of games that are supported in the FAQ that where made before 2008. No Gamecube or GBA games are supported though.

    Also I did a survey for one game and got zero coins...

    Well, I don't give a shit, Twilight Princess GCN should be an exception! It was released AFTER the Wii version, and both are identical aside from the control scheme and the mirrored image.

    Uh-oh! Now in "My Account Settings", it says "No products registered". So that big list of games is gone or isn't showing up anymore.

    I think I'm going to wait a couple of weeks before I mess with this....

    I hope the Hanafuda deck doesn't disappear before I get 800 points.

    I highly doubt that any of the prizes are going to be gone very soon. Besides if you registered everything thats possible, at best you'd be able to come away with maybe 2000 total points right now.
    Because it makes no attempt to be great, it is therefore extremely great.

    They need to offer bonuses because Nintendo's fans are not getting recognition for keeping them in business. I'm angry because I have been a diehard Nintendo fan since my NES on Christmas of 1985 and NOW Nintendo won't return the favor. Listen, I don't think I DESERVE anything but after spending thousands of dollars on Nintendo product while preaching the gospel of Nintendo and then Nintendo tells me that I can only earn these coins but not on 95% of my library is ludicrous. I can see them not allowing it on anything on N64 and before but I think it is BS that they are not allowing Gamecube and GB Advance games. Nintendo has really angered MANY fans this time.

    Cry me a river. They implement a program that gives you FREE shit and you complain? Fucking crybaby. What you got all those years were fun games to play. What else are you owed? No one asked you to "preach the gospel of Nintendo", as you put it. Grow up and get the free stuff you have coming. If you are as big a fanboy as you sound you already have enough points for most of the things on there.

    Totally fuckin agree! Some of you are so ungrateful. All this hate towards Nintendo the moment they offer you free stuff. That dosen't make any fuckin sense.

    It's free if you spent the initial $50+ per game to get the points for the $15 deck of cards.

    Oh, wait, that's not free at all.....

    /devils advocate

    Give it some time, if they are serious about running this club thing, we'll get better prizes in a few months. That SNES Wii controller sounds rather nice...

    It is indeed free. You didn't just hand over $50 for nothing. Now you can enter a code from that game and get something entirely new. That is FREE.

    Someone doesn't know how to add.

    Wii games = 50 coins
    Wii games = $50+
    Cards = 800 coins

    That's 16 Wii games worth of points, at $50+ a pop, your FREE gift (a pack of $15 cards) cost you $800+. And that's not even figuring in each $50+ game has a lot more + in it, not including tax.

    EDIT: And for the record, I think the hanafuda cards a great prize, just not for what they want for it. I'll wait until I can get a set on eBay and save my coins for the OSTs.

    I think the DS Game & Watch Collection looks nice - but only three games? Why not the whole Game & Watch library?!?

    Buying $50 Wii games just to get coins for the rewards isn't cost effective. I fully expect to see people offering PIN codes for sale/trade.

    Anyone up for a little Blockbuster dumpster diving?

    Games cost the same whether they have codes or not. So the codes are included free. 16 free Wii codes = free stuff

    You realize that to get the free code, you have to buy the not free game, right? You're blowing the money either way, regardless of what semantics you want to throw at me.

    Now that I think about it, Game & Watch Collection would be the best deal if it came with a code itself.
