You seem to have posted the same game twice. I believe you intended one of those links to be for Geneshift:

"War Gamez"

 

That tells me everything I need to know about this bundle.

HOW ABOUT A NICE GAME OF CHEZZ?

I don't mind Uplay. You just have to add the games to your library from within the client; you don't have to immediately download them. I don't think it works from the website, though.

I meant to check this out the last time it was brought up because I went through the website and wanted to make sure that they actually added the games to my account instead of just saying that it did, but all three appeared with the games from last year, so I think I'm good.

I did notice that it appears as though you can get them all at once as a bundle through Uplay, while running a search lead to three separate pages for the games and you have to sort through the ones that aren't what you're looking for, so the client does have an edge in convenience.

I own the BOXBOY! games, but like any good CAG haven't played them yet. Will there be any unobtainable trophies if I don't play them before Miiverse shuts down?

The only thing that I have seen so far is that there is a button on the touch screen with the Miiverse symbol. I have yet to use it, but the manual indicates that pressing it launches the Miiverse page for the game, so no big loss if that is the extent of the Miiverse features for the series. None of the BOXBOY! games are detailed under the major game-play feature question either.

Also on the topic of things no longer being available online:

 

On another note, some Metroid rewards were added to My Nintendo in anticipation of the new game's release:

Metroid (Wii U/Nintendo 3DS): 50% off 250 Platinum Coins

Metroid II-Return of Samus (Nintendo 3DS): 30% off 10 Gold Coins

Metroid: Other M (Wii U): 50% off 80 Gold Coins

Metroid : Samus Returns wallpaper A 50 Platinum Coins

Metroid : Samus Returns wallpaper B 50 Platinum Coins

Metroid: Samus Returns Nintendo 3DS Home Theme (Nintendo 3DS) 20 Gold Coins

My make war not love never worked?  I have no emails.  If a bro has a copy of shining force, I'd love to have one.  Thank you!

Fortunately for you I was too lazy busy to post mine earlier, so I can send you a message with it.

Can anyone suggest a nice blue or black flooring? I have an Astro room but all the pieces are blue and not orange. I hate how you can't change the flooring (right?) so I need a nice one to match it. For a wall I'm using an 'ocean horizon' that Nintendo just sent me for playing the Island mini-game.

Do you like the look of the Blue Flooring? People also make patterns that you could scan; I found this by searching for 'blue astro floor':

One of the Nikki machines that you can wiggle some badges to the side is back and for longer than it was here last time. Here's a video showing one of the ways they can fall:

 

 

Getting badges without spending any of your plays is nice, but I think getting the envelopes out of the way and making the character badges easier to access might be even better.

But more importantly, new Swapnote badges today!

Edit: Damn, I'm never going to get those launchers in the blocks.

Anytime there are blocks on stairs like that you can get them without plays, but it takes a long time. I've only done the first one before; they are some of the more screen switch intensive machines, but the first block isn't too bad if you are watching or listening to something else. If I recall correctly, then it may not look like anything is happening at first, but then it tips over. You may not want to try this for the other blocks as I have heard that while it is possible, it takes hours.

 

If you are having trouble with getting them while using plays, then I think the trick is rather than trying to pick them up, you hit them off center with the claw to roll them. Here is a video with a similar machine that should still apply:

 

 

The relevant machine starts at 6:00, but after 6:30 shows what I was talking about better. If your aim is off, then it could take longer to roll properly; I've had it happen to me with similar setups.

If you swap between two machines while a badge is falling, then you can change where it would usually land. This could sometimes be used to get some badges in an easier to grab position, but today I managed to use this trick to get a free item box badge from one of the Mario Kart machines. I only managed to try it once after tapping on the bunny to reset the machine because it caught me off guard. This means that I couldn't retest it, but at least it doesn't take any time and if you can get it to work for yourself and want to get some of the other badges from that machine, then you have one less badge in the way.

 

Edit: I've heard people with good enough luck to have the box knock Peach over without having to do anything.

For those interested, you can get the Aryll badge in Badge Arcade for free by switching between its machine and the one to its right. It seems to take a bit more or less than five minutes depending on whether or not Aryll's telescope appears to get jammed and require more work before it loosens. This video illustrates the wrong way at 2:39 and the right way at 3:32.

Oh well I'm not bothering with that long.  They seemed to shake and shift more before.

Last week was pretty lousy for free badges. However today is much better; you can get ten or more in the time it took to get one launcher badge. They even begin providing a free play today.

 

The Mario vs. Donkey Kong machine with the giant DK badge is the fastest. In less than a minute, you can free the double hammer and coin badges; depending on your luck the Shy Guy may also fall.

 

Next is the MvDK machine with the blocks, girders, ladders, and large door. In about 2 minutes, the two stacked blocks will tip. You may need to work them a few more times for them to slip through if they appear stuck; the block on the other side will probably slide in a strange looking manner until over the edge. You can spend another minute to get a vertical girder.

 

You can work on two Nikki machines at the same time by swapping between them: the one with the pencils and the one with the winged envelopes. In less than 2 minutes the stamp badge should start to move. It might go over right away or it could get stuck and need another minute of work. You will usually also get the cat with pencil badge and occasionally the panda with pencil badge will follow.

 

If you have spent 2 minutes switching between the two Nikki machines mentioned above, then in another 3 minutes, the winged envelopes should tumble to the side, netting you another badge or two.

 

Actually, adding it all up, it looks like it takes less than ten minutes to get between eight and thirteen badges. There look like there are other badges that can move, but it would take a lot more time to get fewer badges.

 

You can also tap on the rabbit to reset a machine once per play, if you want more of a certain badge or another shot at one of the badges that sometimes don't come along.
