1080 Snowboarding (Wii VC) – 150 coins (until Jan 6th)

You can avail these at the rewards page on Club Nintendo.

    mmm metroid 2 sounds like a nice game to get, i don’t know anything about the twinbee game, is it any good?

    • It’s a shoot em up, old school, sort of plays like Xevious. It’s decent, certainly for free at least!

    • I haven’t played TwinBee, but 3D Classics: Xevious is amazing. One of the best uses of 3D, too. TwinBee can’t be all that different.

      update: I take that back. TwinBee is horribly boring.

  • Zonic505

    Hmm, very tempted by Metroid 2. Still trying to decide on 1080 Snowboarding

    • TheRealMalek

      Metroid was a good game but imho it didn’t age all that well. But still for 150 coin, it’s a good deal.

  • AweOfShe

    I was waiting for the right time to grab Metroid 2 and Twin Bee… Definitely did not see this coming, so I’ll just grab them now. Good thing I save my coins, hahah. ;)

  • Captain_Jiruo

    Hot Dang! I almost bought Metroid the other day after I got some Nintendo cards on the cheap.I’m all over this.

  • Barrylocke89

    I might get Mario Party 2. I don’t own any mario party games, (or hardly any multiplayer games for my wii). MP2 would be nice to play in case there’s company over.

  • samael789

    It’s not really free if you’re still forkin’ over the coins, though, is it?

    • PreyMantis

      It’s free. How is it not free when you get free stuff just for buying games on Nintendo platforms? That’s the incentive of buying games on Nintendo systems.

      • gwardyjay

        “…for buying games on Nintendo platforms” seems like a good reason for why this isn’t really ‘free’.

        • Elvick

          It is free.

          You’re not buying a game for coins. You’re buying a game for the game. You just get coins with the game, which you can use on things. And they accumulate at a good rate and the prizes are good.

          • Armane

            Reward schemes are not free. You had to pay money to get the reward, that’s the entire point of reward schemes (to get you to keep going back). If Nintendo gave you a voucher for 50% NSMB Wii when you bought NSMB2, you wouldn’t say, “I got that voucher free.”

            Just because the “voucher” in this instance is 100% off, doesn’t make it any freer.

          • Elvick

            No you didn’t.

            You’re buying something you would have bought anyway. Getting free points, to use on items.

            Free points, to free items.

            You don’t buy coins. You get them for buying games that you would buy regardless.

            It’s free. You’re just being unreasonable and incapable of accepting fact.

            If you buy a game at Walmart and get the game.


            Buying a game at Gamestop and getting a key chain for free, does that mean you bought the key chain?

            No. It’s free. You would have bought the game anyway, but you’re getting something free with it.

            This case you get free points to use on other items. So you have some choice in what you get. And you pay no shipping, nothing. It’s free.

          • Its not free. I go out of my way to buy new versions of games just for nintendo points to use on nintendo club gear. I pay more for nintendo coins, so no the items aren’t free. It is a reward gimick, and the reward gimick is you require the coins from buying the higher priced new games to get a hold of some fairly fun, some cool, items that you can’t get any other way I can think of.

  • MyBodyIsReady

    What about the EU?

  • Gotta get Twinbee.

  • i´ll try to get Metroid II T.T with my US account . I wonder if we will ever get something like Club Nintendo Latinamerica , but as they have shown us on previous years, they don´t give a damn since the Nintendo 64 era.

    • Relytgninroht

      From what I’ve heard, they’re trying to get a Club Nintendo Latin America started up. I know I read about it somewhere…

  • puchinri

    Then it’s technically free, but not entirely free. I don’t mind shelling out coins for games though~.

  • Zharkiel

    Don’t know about you guys, but I’m getting 1080. Metroid 2 is tempting, but I’m short on coins and my nostalgia gravitates more towards that snowy mountain. Had a lot of fun with that game as a kid

  • I highly recommend Twinbee 3D Classics, if you don’t have it already. It’s a great classic arcade shooter game, with a level of strategy to it given how you have to collect bells for an increasing amount of points, as well as shoot them just enough to get weapon upgrades or speed boosts. It allows for a high level of satisfaction and lets you build up lives very fast! Also the music is far less annoying than Xevious’s, haha. XD;

    For 150 coins, it’s a good purchase for your 3DS.

  • Edzo

    “free” in the sense that you dont pay money directly for it but not free in the sense that you pay coins. id call that not free.

  • Theofratus ‘Geese’ Lester

    I only “bought” it for 3D Classics: Twinbee. :D
