By gold coin, I'm guessing you mean some plastic crap painted gold.... am I right?
Doesn't really matter.... last year's e3 "event" was a joke anyways. I know that in several states, including mine, Nintendo decided not to host "events" at any Best Buy near any of the bigger cities (like our state capital for instance), instead opting to host the events in tinyass hick towns that are hours away from anything. Because apparently the goal of these demoes was to have as few people play them as possible.
And according to the BB link, my state isn't even getting anything at all this year. Fantastic work Nintendo.
While we are on the topic of bullshit, I like how these games already have 5 star ratings and reviews. It must be great to be able to travel that far into the future
Just as well I guess.... this figurine bullshit has me thinking twice on buying what would've otherwise been a Day 1 purchase for me. Until they elaborate on what uses they will have, and convince me that this isn't their way of overcharging for DLC that should be free, I'm not putting any money down. Not even for a plastic "gold" coin.
