well...if you're still mad at nintendo I know the perfect way to get back at them! Just give me your reward. I don't have a wii-u. The only 3DS game I have on the list is Donkey Kong Country Returns 3ds...so stick it to the man! I'll gladly take any other 3ds game on that list lol

Just found out about the games for this years rewards. Even though the rewards were kinda lame, I enjoyed getting an item that was exclusive to the site. It made me happy knowing other people couldn't just walk into a store and buy it.

 

 

As far as the rewards go, next time you fill out surveys, don't fill in anything else but " no physical games as rewards or i'll stop buying games" or something. Thats what I intend to do.

Not a bad idea. Withhold the marketing data by telling them what you're doing, and still taking the coins. For the Donkey Kong Country Returns survey, all the questions such as "Why did you buy this game?" and "What are you looking forward to the most?" I just answered very negatively. "I didn't want this game. I have no interest on it. I just figured if I had to get a digital game, I may as well get the most expensive one to buy."

So I get an e-mail saying my platinum rewards are ready and I have to redeem them before August 15, but every time I try to get on, I get that Club Nintendo is undergoing maintenance.

I have scanned the last 3 or so pages but couldn't wade through all the "Club Nintendo sucks!" commentary to actually figure out what the rewards are. Someone did list Canadian prices for a list of games, and people were angry about not getting physical rewards.

Was that Canadian list the exhaustive list of rewards?

That's part of the problem, I think. There's really nothing you can do with the Gold rewards if you already have the games or don't want them. I haven't redeemed my code at all either, but can't even get someone interested in any game at any price.

Stop being greedy. If you don't want your reward just give it to someone you care about. For free.


Never stop making them pay.

I have some XBLA games if you're interested in a 1-for-1 trade?

I work with wood and leather as a hobby.  You can't just walk into a store and buy one of my custom bookshelves, spice rack, or one of my belts.  That doesn't make them valuable.

 

Then again I don't have thousands of fanboys frothing at the mouth to pay $60 for my lazy halfassed crap like Toad's Treasure Hunt or Mario Sports Mix......   :cry:

On a different topic, anyone else feel like Nintendo's CS is painfully dated? Last year I had to go to hell and back to get my platinum reward replaced and this year I seem to have the same problem getting my potentially missing Digital DX points. It's almost to the point where I just get Game & Wario to get it over with.

You have no idea. My friend recently bought one of their refurbished Wii Us, it took him a month and 9 phone calls to finally get a completely working unit. His Wii U didn't work, so they had him send it in. They then sent him just a Gamepad. They then sent him an empty box after assuring him twice that it had a Wii U in it. They then couldn't get anyone to open a box to get him a new Wii U system, so they sent him a new refurbished kit. After all that, he found out the Wii Mote plus that came with it wasn't working. After all that trouble, He now has a Wii U, two gamepads, one broken and one working wiimote, two sets of cables a copy of Nintendoland and a copy of SM3DW. All for $200 and a month worth of shit.

Thats not too terrible, since your friend sort of came ahead in the long run, but still way more than anyone should have to deal with. When I got my OST for Zelda replaced I was originally told they would just send me a new one. 1 month later I was told they were waiting for me to send it back and they would contact me in 2 business days with more details. Two business days later I talked to someone at Nintendo and they were just like send it back or deal with it, so I asked where to send it / if shipping would be covered (it was not -.-) and then I sent it to where they wanted with a letter explaining the issue like they said to write. Two weeks later I contacted Nintendo asking wtf was going on and they told me I sent it to the wrong place and thats why an issue had occurred. The guy finally did something and I got my OST a week or so later. 

 

Anyway, this digital one is proving to be more annoying because of how simple it is! I called on the day when elite rewards were announced and explained that I never got points for Pokemon Rumble U. 30 minutes of explaining that I had waited a day and I didn't want CN coins I got them to issue it and they said they would contact me in 2 business days with a solution. Two business days later I called and another 30 minutes of explanations got me back to "they will look into it" and it would be "5 to 7 business days." I then called again today to see what the progress was with the first complaint and she said that Nintendo had JUST TODAY got my issue over to the people that could solve it and they would most likely have an answer by August 1. Yes people, it took nearly 14 days just for Nintendo to LOOK at my issue and up to 16 days to potentially resolve it. ~_~

Not sure what the hate is all about? Nintendo gives you free games/prizes for buying their titles all the time. The world is moving digital. I love my Platinum statue, my posters, my Majora's mask cd and even the Mario related pins they gave out. I don't mind more games though. My backlog will shed more tears knowing it's not a physical gift.

No idea what I am getting either. All the Platinum titles minus Game & Wario I do not own. Been wanting to get DKC3DS, also very interested in Earthbound, NES Remix and Dr. Luigi. Tough one for me.


Earthbound, no question. Sold my physical copy of it & GC Zelda, plus the PS4 camera when they were OoS in February to purchase a Zelda Wii U with the free Zelda download & Earthbound as my first two digital purchases.
