    What's so bad about it? Maybe I should try to back out.
    I don't know, I guess it isn't terrible. It is gray screen printed with a bit of sparkly in it. I just think that in comparison to the look on the website it isn't very similar.

    Personally, I'd go with either an NES Remix or Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. NES Remixes are good for quick, pick-up-and-play challenges and Warioware-esque remixes. The 3DS Remix has more games on offer than the Wii U's NES Remix 2. Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze is probably the best of the batch if you want a challenging action-adventure.

    But if you are looking to buy physical copies of Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze and NES Remix 2/Ultimate, but probably not Mario Golf World Tour, then that is probably the best choice. Go for what you are least likely to buy as your freebie reward because then you can have collectable physical copies of whatever you like more.
    The golf multi-player I've had fun with was always taking turns on the big screen in the same room ala N64 or Wii. I don't really know people with 3DSs, and even if I did, I can't imagine getting together and pulling out our 3DSs to
    play. I think I've settled on DKC.

    When Nintendo sends out a physical Club Nintendo reward, the company sends the recipient an e-mail to let him/her know the thing is on the way. Did you get one of these yet? If not, check your Club Nintendo account's "orders" page to make sure your recent order is listed. If it is, everything is good and all you need to do is to be patient. If it is not listed, then I guess you should place an order to replace the missing one!

    A couple of us are in the same boat (see earlier in this thread). It seems like they haven't made the pouches yet or something, since other things ordered recently have shipped, but no word about the pouches.

    Seems to me there are much better unofficial T-shirt designs out there.

    What shall I do with 300 coins?
    Choice is agony! I don't think I want to back out of getting the bag and get a T-shirt and card case instead, but I whupped myself for those coins and heck if I'm going to spend less than 1100.

    Fluidity: Spin Cycle seems to have gotten the best reviews of anything on offer in that point range. Has anyone here played it?

    I haven't played it, but I did some research about it when I had been thinking about getting it. I ultimately didn't get Fluidity when I learnt the game uses motion controls, so to play it, you have to spin your 3DS clockwise and counterclockwise. I don't usually enjoy motion controls or touchscreen controls in my games, so I skipped on Fluidity. However, if this control scheme doesn't bug you or if, in fact, you enjoy motion controls, then this game has a cheerful visual design and lots of *ahem* head-spinning challenges for you to enjoy.

    If you have a Wii, there's a nice demo of the original Fluidity that's available via the Wii Shop. That should help you make your decision since with the gameplay videos I've seen, the 3DS follow-up follows this formula pretty closely. It's also motion based of course, using a Wii remote.

    To me, while a fine game and a neat concept, I kind of tired of it by the end of the demo and decided it wasn't worth $10.

    Do you think Harmoknight is a better idea? That would be the alternative.

    If it boils down to HarmoKnight or Fluidity, I would definitely go with HarmoKnight. That game is very charming and has many stages and a lot of content. Some of it is childish, but it is good fun. Plus if you like Pokemon, there are hidden Pokemon songs in HarmoKnight.

    The price of the physical rewards has just been slashed. Too late for me to cancel my bag, alas, but at least I can still get a card case now.

    Wow that sucks, if I known they'd actually be generous for once I would have held out. With the points I had I could have had 2 of the good things like that Mario shirt or the bag too along with the pouch. :\ Now I have 125 coin and the minimum is 150.

    In the grand scheme of things, it was probably just as likely that things would start selling out rather than getting price cuts.

    I would have been platinum every year but I was too lazy with the vouchers.

    I have 240 points and am gridlocked on what to spend them on. Most of the stuff I would want is out of my price range and the 200 points or less stuff I already own in physical form. Right now it's looking like a toss up between Looksley's Line Up and Super Mario Bros. 2 for the WiiU. I've seen some negative press on Looksley's and heard it's both short and hard to get to work but the footage of it on YouTube captivated me years back.

    I would have too if they didn't screw around and cut off the points early as I was banking on the New3DS putting me over the top along with a couple other 3DS games.

    INterestingly people are slowly getting their physical rewards and there's a good amount of complaining. The Zelda puzzle is tiny sized, despite the pieces it's very small, and it just ships in a paper bag with Zelda art on it, folded and glued at top. The Majora bag is like the pikmin one, so it's small, thin, can't handle any considerable load, it's more for show. The zelda 8bit pouch no one has yet, people are concerned (as am I) that it may be a cheap out little nylon bag maybe with heat pressed art on it instead of quality like the club mario red(or blue) on gray reversable thing the shop had in the past.

    What sucks is I just got some 3DS games at a flea market this weekend. But unfortunately the time for registering new games has long ended. Oh well, I got the majority of stuff I wanted anyway.

    The Majora bag's not too bad. It's maybe a little more cheaply made than I hoped, but it's spacious enough to hold all my Shadowrun stuff.

    I spent the rest of my coins on the bag when I heard they were shutting down the rewards program. I think the best thing I ever got from Club Nintendo, though, was a download for Dillon's Rolling Western.

    That was the only physical reward I wanted but I decided to use my coins to get four games instead. I might look for one on ebay in the future though.

    I didn't even consider that one; the reviews are scathing. I guess you liked it?

    Scathing, where? I'm curious now.... I assumed it was some tower defense game, which I have no interest in.

    Maybe not so much scathing as unenthusiastic.

    Good for you, don't see a problem with this as you got what you really wanted (needed?) I ended up finding a complete fire emblem 3ds last weekend for $20, that had me happy as I never got around to it when it first came out, sat sealed for a year and sold it. With the 3DS stuff and me making more time for it playing in bed at night (1hr min) I'll use it.


    Dillon's Rolling Western seem to average plenty of 6-8 range scores. The problem isn't so much the game sucks or has flaws, but it feels like a DLC strap on to the original game. There just isn't enough there for the price tag attached so people dinged it for the thing I just wrote. It's not that the game is bad, it's a content vs price issue, but you got it free. It may be best to just look at ratings of the original Dillon to discount the DLC size complaining vs price. All the issues of the original that did get it docked still exist in this game, another complaint that media complaints of the original reviewed game (like being repetitive) were not addressed played into it too. Yet on metacritic while the game averages a 65 the players reviews average a 7.5. http://www.metacritic.com/game/3ds/d...olling-western
