I'm headed to Cozumel Mexico in July
Mexico is awesome. Cheap and beautiful.

Most likely a negative stigma attached to Gaming, Cartoon and Anime related things versus TV, Movies and Sports. Like, it's seen as somewhat traditional for a guy to have sports memorabilia, so someone seeing that (especially a woman) would probably find it more normal / socially acceptable than a person with gaming swag around. Not to mention, it also has something of an immature association, so these two things probably work against it.
It isn't, most girls aren't into that shit either. Gaming memorabilia is far worse though as far as social stigma and so on.
A poster of Michael Jordan vs. a poster of some half naked anime chick, hmmm.
I don't doubt that at all. I guess when you stop and really think about it, shouldn't it be more acceptable to go over a dude's place and see he has a poster of a half naked anime chick instead of a poster of some guy??
It's kind of depressing that we (just as people) feel like we can't show off something we like..well, we can. It's just that everyone has to be on the same page apparently. I look at the pic that MrNinjaSquirrel posted and of course I find it funny, but I see that as someone who has a passion and cares about something. Although maybe not the sheets.. (But then, this very well could be a picture of some 11 year old's bedroom).
ANYwho, what time should we expect the Rewards page be updated with the new games?

It's getting absurd at this point. Shitloads of people play video games and an extremely small number will decorate their house with memorabilia. The same is true with lots of other things. Let's be frank here, it does look tacky (and extremely nerdy) to most people. For those of you that aren't married or in a long term relationship already, good luck getting laid with that Yoshi picture hanging next to your bed.
Unless, of course, that girl or guy is also into the same stuff as you. But that's crazy talk.
As far as gaming memorabilia, I only have that Mario & Co statute thing from Club Nintendo a few years ago by my PC. I wouldn't mind more. There are some really neat looking things on sites like Etsy that is gaming related, but looks artsy enough where it doesn't look completely juvenile. It may also not be my cup of tea, but who is saying that people decorate their ENTIRE place with that stuff? What if you had a designated room where your gaming system(s) is/are set up? I think that would look appropriate. To each their own. I don't really care how someone decorates.
But let's look at something like this --> https://www.etsy.com...ew_type=gallery
I can't say that I would use this, but I think with the right imagination and enough decor skill.. I think this could look hip/trendy/nice in the right environment. Maybe that's just me.
The current stuff on Club Nintendo, imo, is mostly over-priced gift store shit.

So, think they'll give us a GBA game on the Wii U VC for their April update?
No, we can't have nice things. Seems like the really good games are pretty rare to come by. Sigh. I have 900 coins and nothing is expiring..and nothing to buy. Waaaah.

I just got into this the other day, and I'm really impressed. I have NOT played other CCGs, so I can't comment on the complexity of it. It seems like the learning curve is very fast and simple --- it's just the strategies you come up with that are more complex (or as complex as you want it). I haven't spent any money on packs. I may in the future.. but not a lot. Maybe that $10 set or $20 and have it be a one time only thing. I'm OK with doing dailies and then doing arenas to unlocking more cards and then DE'ing the duplicates and create ones I need.
I have a lot of hope for this game. It's new, so anything goes. Currently, there's a promo that if you win 3 matches you will have the "Hearthsteed Mount" in WoW. I like that a lot. This gives me hope that they will have special events that will lead to other prizes/neat things like that. Perhaps even do stuff in their other games can unlock some decks.
The main thing I am HOPING.. HOPING... for.. is they add vanity pets/mounts/extras to their decks much like TCG. Although I would love if they added the exact pets/mounts/extras to this game, I'm hoping for something new. This doesn't seem unlikely, and if they make these pets/mounts/extras available only (by chance) when you purchase packs, I'd assume that sales would increase a lot. Hell, I know I would set up some kind of limit to allow myself to buy packs.
Regardless, It's a pretty great (addicting) game that has potential to become a lot better and much more involved with their other games. I'm already loving that people who purchased the D3 expansion received 1-3 packs. It's those kinds of extras that, if done right, can make Blizzard even more enjoyable. No, I'm not one of them blizzard fanboys.. I promise.

Can't really seem to find much on this like other posters have mentioned, but I am definitely in for one. I didn't have a chance to get the Zelda bundle, so I'll snag this one as I am probably in the few who like the color/design a bit better.
No, I completely agree. I wanted a silver 3DS XL (or purple, but that's not happening.. wahhh ) and I love the simple design with Mario & Luigi. The design is pretty retro. It just looks really, really nice.
