Am I crazy? I see Bonsai Barber was 150 points in July 2012. I guess Nintendo eshop games go UP in value over time. I guess it's weird how XBLA and PSN traditionally reduce the price of digital games over the years.

 

They've been raising the prices on nearly everything.  I'm actually shocked the little basket is only 700 and not 1000 since it was 700 last time.

Got kid Icarus. I never played this but I heard its a sequel to the nes one and it looks like it plays the same.

It's easier, but just as good.

In the past year / year and a half Nintendo has been raising the price of everything. I believe it all started with the Pikmin 3 tote, which is practical the same as the 250 coin mushroom tote, but now costs 400. The most alarming change was probably the 3DS game case (same 250 to 400 upgrade), since it's one of the simpler / cheaper to make items on Club Nintendo. 

 

It makes sense that Nintendo needs to raise the price, since 250 coins was a lot more 2 - 3 years ago, but with so few options I can understand disliking it.

I was shocked it was 700 in the first place. When I first saw it relisted I said to myself "no way that was originally 700 coins". Certainly makes me wonder if I should spend some of my coins now, since I have 600 or so expiring this year.

I can highly recommend the Super Mario basket. I got one when they first released, and it's actually very nice. Worth 700 coins I'd say.

I bought the Link Between World posters the other day, I have 500 coins left. I'm really tempted to buy the Animal Crossing 3DS pouch as they look really good. I'm just afraid with the recent stockings that they'll actually stock something I REALLY want (3DS charging cradle, mainly). Kinda tempted to cancel my LBW backorder too, but eh..

While I am interested in Number Battle (and remember being interested when the game came out years ago), with Nintendo soon taking DSiware games offline, there isn't a lot of point in buying this. There is a story mode, but the online mode will soon be unplayable. I believe I'll pass on this.

Bunch of nothing for me. I will advise against that Yoshi game. I paid 30 cents for it and felt ripped off. Very lame/barebones puzzle game. Really hoping for a restock on the 3DS game cases (either the big one or that one that comes with stylus' that they recently added to the "out of stock" section).

Reall hoping for a restock on the 3DS game cases (either the big one or that one that comes with stylus' that they recently added to the "out of stock" section).

No kidding, I also got it for 30 cent and it isn't worth that (but I was a big fan of their 30 cent, so I got ALL of them anyways).  Most puzzle games can keep me occupied at least a little while, but this one ... nothing.  Performance is terrible (even for an NES game) and the mechanics are just not very compelling.  Skip it.

 

Kid Icarus sounds decent, but I have the 3D classic from a while back and never play it (I beat the original back in the day).  I guess I'll keep hoarding points for now.  Not every month is a winner, but most months at least one of them is something I want so I can't complain.

Right after I order those posters they put up an accessory bag in  the store, bah! Anyway, I have my doubts but wanted to know if it was possible to create links of some sort in the Wii U menu to Wii VC games. It's not a huge deal but Its a bit of a pain to launch the Wii menu to get to those VC games. Is there any linking or shortcuts available?

I second the Yoshi comment.  This game really is not worth the $.30 I spent on it.  But I did get some CN points out of it.

I got Kid Icarus Myths and Monsters. Now I have a pretty decent gameboy virtual console library on my 3DS.

Anyone know if there are more games coming to Wiiware and DSiware? I still have over 2000 of points for both systems each. If not, I'll find something to buy.

Myths and Monsters is like $4 right? I don't know, I don't think $4 is worth 150 coins for me (100 is a bit closer). I'm just glad I got Super Mario RPG instead of waiting for this month's load of crap.

 

250 coins for Bonsai Buddy is ridiculous. It's $10. The standard usually is $8 - $10 = 200 coins (see all the N64 VC releases).

 

Surprised they did an update in the middle of the night, hopefully next month they'll stick to the schedule.

 

And for those of you wondering, yes, Yoshi is as bad as everybody says. Got it on my 3DS with Ambassador status and it was terrible.

Decided to grab a pink 3DS bag to go with my Princess Peach case since the zipper always presses against my XL. Still holding out for the 18 game cases to come back.

Just curious, how would one go about canceling a backorder on CN?

I actually liked that game, but mostly because I remember having it on the original Game Boy and playing the hell out of it because I only had 3 games at the time.

You can usually contact their CS and have them do it. Just tell them straight up you don't want it anymore, backorder is taking too long and you'd rather buy something else, etc, whatever works. I've canceled one or two this way, but it's been a while.

The xl cradle among other things was taken off the currently unavailable section. That's not a good sign. :-(

I'm also one that likes Yoshi. It's very simplistic, and I don't know what it is about it but it got its hooks in me. I looked at my Activity log on my 3DS and I've logged a shocking 26 and a half hours on it with the Avg play time of 53 minutes.

 

I've not touched the Wii U version that I got for $.30, so I definetly think it is better suited to a portable than a home console.

Came here to post this. The only thing left in "Currently unavailable" is the card case. Strange seeing as they just added G&W Ball to that section recently.

So they're either going to put that stuff back up or they're never going to make it available again.

Try the trading section. I believe there's a thread dedicated to selling codes for coins.

I'm feeling generous tonight for some reason.  Usually I'd tell 'em to sod off and find it themselves...
