#11885870 Club Nintendo Deals ~ New Games Up (8/4-9/7)

Posted by Sway on 01 July 2014 - 04:37 AM

There were from Gamestop "new" games so I can't be 100% sure they weren't already used but just in case:

 

America's Test Kitchen (20 coins)
VRD-7LDX-TFVB-76Z
9D3-TN4U-CDS8-4UX
SY5-FBWs-MD8P-QPT



#11812794 Anime & Manga Thread Vol. 2: Za Warudo!!!

B Gata H Kei - Yamada's First Time

Not gonna spoiler it because as DNukem170 mentioned earlier, it's one joke that hits you over the head. I'll just say that I didn't dislike it and glad it was only 12 episodes long.  Also, there's that creepy obsession Yamada's rival has.

 

Kill la Kill

I've only watched 7 episodes so far but this anime is freakin' great. I really like Mako and her family. Her innocence is a great compliment to Ryuko's tough girl attitude. I'm leaning towards buying this series on Blu Ray but looking at the price for the first volume gave me memories of buying anime on DVD at Suncoast in the early 2000s.  I didn't realize anime was released in 4ish episode discs anymore at $30 (dvd) or $40 (BR).

#11716861 Elite Beat Agents $5.88 at Amazon / Walmart

One of my favorite games of all time.  If you enjoy this and want some more, check out Ouendan 1 and 2. It's by the same developer with the same gameplay but in Japanese. It's very friendly in terms of navigating menus and playing the game.

Awesome to see Dust as part of the GwG program. I was interested in it but didn't want to add to my backlog whenever it went on sale.  I drew up a GwG wishlist with some comments by browsing the GoD list on xbox.com and tried to find games that were $20 or less. I think I saw someone stating there was a price criteria when it came to selecting games for the program but I couldn't find it. I'd also like to see a franchise/DLC sale to accompany any games (if applicable).

 

- WWE All Stars ($19.99): I was never a fan of the "realistic" WWE games but loved this over the top entry. Traded it in but now am itching to play it again.
- Dead Space 1 ($14.99): I know it was free on Origin but my comp specs are ass and I still need to do the hard playthrough for the last achievements.
- Beautiful Katamari ($19.99): Loved the first two Katamaris on the PS2 but never got around to playing this one.
- Mirror's Edge ($14.99): Another game I enjoyed but sold in a purge of my collection but would like to play again.
- Mortal Kombat ($19.99): Same as Mirror's Edge.
- Bayonetta ($19.99): I remember beating the game despite not enjoying it too much, but I'd like to think I would like it if I gave it a second chance.
- Saints Row The Third ($19.99): Loved and beat the game but sold it before trying out the DLC. 
- Alice: Madness Returns ($19.99): Never played it but was always semi-interested in doing so.
- Metro 2033 ($19.99) Same as Alice.
- Far Cry 3 ($19.99) Same as Alice and Metro 2033.
- Tekken Tag Tournament 2 ($19.99) Played only an hour or so of this but enjoyed playing it. I'm ass at fighting games but for some reason I'm more likely to buy and play very little of them. I do enjoy watching fighting game tournaments on Twitch though.
- Enslaved ($14.99) Another game I never played but was semi-interested in playing.

#11714893 Anime & Manga Thread Vol. 2: Za Warudo!!!

Posted by Sway on 25 April 2014 - 06:58 PM

So I subbed earlier this week to Netflix to jump on the Attack on Titan bandwagon. I really dislike that post play screen that pops up at the end of each episode because I enjoy the credits and preview to the next episode. I know you can disable the next episode from playing but it appears you can't disable the screen that shrinks what you're currently watching and shows the text describing the next episode. Any way to deal with that or am I just going to have to click on the episode I'm currently watching to continue the credits/next episode preview?

 

As for Attack on Titan, I'm enjoying it so far.  I am kind of thrown off by the early twists (up to ep 9 at the moment) but I'm intrigued on how it all works out.

Anybody know where the hell it tells you about expired points on the new Xbox site? Since they changed it I can't find any info about that. I'm not sure if its because i have no points expiring soon or I'm looking in the wrong place.

Thanks

Posted by Sway on 01 April 2014 - 03:03 AM

After following most of the issues discussed with the promotion, I feel like some type of Club Nintendo reminder should be posted in future 3DS console threads. I don't know if I'm making a mountain out of a mole hill but I'm hoping it'll help someone down the road.
 
Tips to maximize possible CN promotions in the future:
- Club Nintendo has had two promotions in the past that rewarded new system AND game buyers. One in March/April 2013 and one in March 2014. This doesn't guarantee another console/game promotion next year but a trend is starting. There was also a promo awarding $30 eShop credit if you registered Fire Emblem Awakening and Shin Megami Tensei 4.
- Save your Club Nintendo inserts. It's red and white and has the pin number you need to redeem to get your coins. Leave it in the box or case, or gather them all and put them somewhere you'll remember. Just save them.
- Unless you need the coins immediately (CN sometimes has high value items such as the Kirby coin, Luigi statue or 3ds game card holder), wait until closer to the end of the CN year (June 31) to get Gold/Platinum status.  This may or may not work in your favor if you're not in a position to enter codes when a hot item appears. In that case, registering the game/system as soon as possible would be better.
- The CAG CN code trading thread is here if you need to get rid of excess codes or are looking for a specific one.
- You may need to create a child account to register the qualifying system/game in order to be eligible for the promo. (This probably needs clarification since I haven't had the need to mess with family accounts).
- If worst comes to worst, be polite and explain your situation to their customer service. It never hurts to ask.
- Other tips and tricks would be appreciated.
 
 
That being said, I have a pin for Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D and I'm looking for a $5 Amazon.com gift card.
