I think points expire so you can't always hit platinum every year and get the platinum award yearly for not spending your points at all the whole time you're a club nintendo member.


actually, the points toward gold/platinum reset at the end of the CN year, so even if they didn't expire people couldn't do that
Let me tell you two useful pieces of information...

Already picked up LM2 and don't want to upgrade to an XL yet.
Can I just buy a registration code to get the free game?

I'm not sure how the bonus game redemption works.

Yes, but you will be paying a premium premium.

so admiralvic is one of 7 people who has platted lost planet 2. and one of 4 people with 100% on spelunker hd. respect him even more


guys, you are talking to admiralvic about trophy acquisition, he is the exception.

As in a lot of people know about the promo and will ask more for it (I recall people claiming in the Pikachu threads a LM2 / Pokemon code was FAIRLY priced at $10 dollars) and systems are worth more coins. You figure LM 2 is like 40 coins, where as a system is 160, so... yea, two premiums.

If anyone can help me with my question, I would be grateful!
After making an nintendo club account, I went ahead and registered my Pikachu 3DS XL in order to get the free game(s), do I have to buy one of the two games; Pokemon Mystery Dungeon or Luigi Mansion: Dark's Moon in order to get the free game out of the five that you can choose? If so I thought all you had to do was registered the 3DS and you got Luigi Mansion: Dark's Moon & one of the free games out of the five!

You got to buy DM or Pokemon. If you got both, then I am sure CAG would have exploded from people trying to score from this deal.

I highly recommend Layton as your free game of choice. The franchise is superb.

I went with Mario just because, being the proprietary Mario title, it's less likely to drop in price from the $40 MSRP or hit clearance bins. Layton was just at $20 on newegg a few weeks ago...and Art Academy/Freaky Forms are already at the $20 mark. Seemed like the logical choice CAG-wise...hehe

Can't dispute that, and I tend to agree, I've just gotten much more enjoyment/hours out of Layton than any Mario title except perhaps Mario 64.

If I didn't have OCD, I would have enjoyed Layton a lot more. With the consumable hint coins and permanently losing picarats for wrong answers, I was saving before every puzzle and reloading if I made a bad guess or calculation. I got burnt out from that at the 2nd game.

That would upset me, I bought Art Academy digitally just so I could get DK:OE
My money would have instead gone to a physical Paper Mario (I like to keep retail games as retail)

Games are up:

- Super Mario 64 (Wii, 200 coins)
- Super Metroid (Wii, 150 coins)
- Kirby's Pinball Land (3DS, 150 coins)
- 3D Classics: Urban Champion (3DS, 150 coins)

Can't go wrong with Super Mario 64. Super Metroid, if you have a Wii U, it'll be 30 cents from May 15th to June 13th. Kirby's Pinball Land is decent (I might get it out of nostalgia when I played it as a kid), though I've heard very "meh" reactions to Urban Champion, probably should save your coins.

Updated the OP with the new games. Sorry for the delay, didn't noticed they'd changed over. Psyched about Super Metroid, as I'll finally get a chance to play it:D Weird that Super Mario 64 is 200 though, instead of 150:roll:

N64 games tend to be 200 coins while SNES and portable downloads (GB, DSiWare, 3DSware) are 150 or cheaper. I guess coin value is based on the original pricing of the games.

Ya know, now that I think about it, I think this is the 2nd time or so Urban Champions has been offered as a reward.....Still seemed like a weird choice to get a 3D Classics remake.

well Mario Tennis was 150 last month, so I think it varies from game to game. Luckily I have exactly enough for Super Metroid^.^glad I went ahead and entered my codes I'd been forgetting about

Elaborate? I'm not familiar with the workings of the WiiU
