I got 700 Club Nintendo coins to use until June 30th, and I have no idea what to use them on. For your collective sake, dear readers, perhaps I'll dedicate them to KoopaTV-related prizes. But I kind of want to enjoy myself, too. So let's check out Club Nintendo's grand finale! I can tell you what to get and what to avoid.
|...If we can get in.|
2016 Desktop Calendar and Super Smash Bros. 3-Poster Sets.
|You'd love to have these in your room.|
Those posters are of the official artwork you see on the Super Smash Bros. official website for the newcomers. They look cool.
Also, these games:
|Personally verified to be the best games there.|
That's Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Advance 3, Doc Louis's Punch-Out!!, Paper Mario, Punch-Out!!: Featuring Mr. Dream, EarthBound, and Kid Icarus: Uprising. We've endorsed some of these games over and over!
|Is being made in America supposed to explain the "Black image on Black Canvas" stupidity?|
That's the "Fierce Deity Link Jigsaw Puzzle" and "The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D Messenger Bag". If you're a big Majora's Mask fan, it doesn't matter. Both prizes waste potential. That amazing artwork with Link and the bosses? It's wasted on being a JIGSAW PUZZLE. See, THAT should be a poster. ...As for the bag, it's self-explanatory why that's stupid.
As for the games to avoid, there are a lot of pretty bad games there that you should have common sense to avoid. But just to make it abundantly clear, we want you to avoid the worst decision you could possibly make:
|700 coins is the most coins they're asking for any game.|
You can pay the most amount of reward coins possible for one of the most disappointing experiences possible! Paper Mario: Sticker Star killed the Paper Mario spirit. It brought a split community together, united over how bad the game was. The idea that it is valued as the best possible game you can get is absolutely ridiculous, and shows how out-of-touch Nintendo is about how Paper Mario: Sticker Star is a failure of a game. Remember what one of the developers said?
"We worked hard so that this game would become the new standard for future Paper Mario games[.]"If these Club Nintendo rewards are any indication, then it looks like they're still on that path!
Oh, um, also, don't get F-Zero X. I can still give that code for free to one person.
By the way, look how weird this is:
|The Wii U port is 200 coins, the Wii port is 250 coins.|
Well, I still don't know how to spend my 700 coins. Maybe get the calendar and offer up to 300 coins on a KoopaTV prize? Save it all for you? Dump it all on posters? Let me know!
Leave feedback for Ludwig on how to use his reward currency! If you would like to chime in on games you think people should get, or should avoid, or have an objection to Ludwig's picks, feel free to comment!
The KoopaTV Rewards Program is how Ludwig's stuff will be given away. That's right: He gets nothing. You get everything!
Paper Mario gets another recommendation, this time for an epic E3 sale.
