Bird & Beans - two levels, the only difference is alternate backgrounds. About what you'd expect from a flash game, but not good enough to be on Kongregate.

Metal Torrent - top-down shmup with two difficulty levels (Easy and Insane). Easy is very easy, and Insane is hard not because of more powerful enemies, but because they take away a lot of weapons and abilities. Takes about 15 minutes to beat.

Do not bother with those two, they're bad. Paper Mario is easily the best title. Sucks there's nothing for DS this time.

That's the one I just picked up and downloaded. The wife and I love Paper Mario: Thousand Year Door so this one was a no-brainer. :)

Thanks for the info on the DS titles, missed out on Punch Out and was thinking about picking one of them. Now I guess I'll wait.

saw wii and 3ds and thought they would be download games.

then I saw Bird & Beans and Metal Torrent and thought those sounded like cool items. Then I thought oh maybe there's a paper Mario and a Kirby "Super Star" plush or something!

read the OP and was disappointed lol

what are the Bird Beals and Metal Torrent games about anyway? I've never heard of them, guessing they are indie.

Yes, yes you should :bouncy:

Bird & Beans - two levels, the only difference is alternate backgrounds. About what you'd expect from a flash game, but not good enough to be on Kongregate.

Thanks for this. I was interested in metal torrent, but I''ll wait to use my points instead.

Got Metal Torrent since I'm into shmups & for 150 coins, it's okay. Not much variation but still fun if you need a quick shmup fix while waiting for something.

Completely recommend Paper Mario & Kirby Super Star. I don't know how many times I've replayed those games, especially Paper Mario, growing up. Heck, that'd be a game I wouldn't mind having a digital copy of.

Birds & Beans is just Pyoro from the original WarioWare. I think Blade summed it up best: Feels like an okay flash game, but nothing special.

They offered Kirby Super Star once before and I got it then. Might be in for two Paper Marios. Wouldn't mind one for myself on my Will and one for the kids' system.

Wish I could play it on my Wii tablet. 200 pts now + $1.50 later = tablet-able game? Can't wait for the Wii U VC to catch up...

This may sound like a dumb question but those of you with a Wii U, are you able to redeem your codes? Or will you be able to redeem these codes when the VC finally is updated this spring?

EDIT: Always wondered this because I have plenty of unused Club Nintendo game codes and I plan on getting rid of my Wii for a Wii U (and no I don't want to do the transfer option, I know that exists)

You can go to the Wii menu on the Wii U. I believe once that launches, you can redeem the codes emailed to you there. There's a "Learn more" link on both of the games' pages.

Man another good month and I don't have any more points. Missed out on Mario Kart last month and now I'll miss Kirby Super Star and Paper Mario. I might be able to scrape enough points for Kirby though. Have to check and see how close I am later.

Paper Mario really is a no-brainer this month, assuming you have the coins, and is probably the best CN game for Wii they have ever offered. Kirby Super Star is good too, but that is of course on the Dream Collection anyways (which is still on sale for $20 @ Best Buy until this Friday for RZ members, just another reminder in case people forget the other thread).

There is no indication on what CN will offer each month. The only stipulation is that it will be a first party VC reward, or any WiiWare / DSiware game that is published by Nintendo.

Why don't they offer GOOD games on the 3DS? I know it could run Paper Mario easily.
