Club Nintendo Discontinuation

After six years Club Nintendo is being discontinued and a new, as yet unannounced, loyalty program will take its place. The last day to earn coins toward your status is March 31st 2015 and all coins must be redeemed by June 30th 2015. This is sad news despite the fact that the NA Club has been slacking in rewards for the past couple of years. I am curious as to what exactly the new loyalty program will be.

The Official notice is linked here:

What game are you looking forward to most?

Postby Jonah » Mon Jan 05, 2015 10:09 pm

So who will answer Nintendo's question? From this list the choice surely must be 'The Legend of Zelda' on Wii U. I'm excited also for Majora's Mask 3D because I've yet to play it, and now I can play it for the first time on upgraded hardware. :)

Captain Toad Review

Postby Jonah » Mon Jan 05, 2015 11:53 am

Current playtime: 4 Hours + (My Wii U registers 5 hours, but I've made an allowance for possible breaks in between playing).

Early Friday morning I was finally able to download 'Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker', and I thought I would share some impressions about the game after playing through Episode 1 and some extra bonus stages.

The story line to Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker is very simple. Captain Toad and Toadette love treasure, but their passion for priceless/precious materials always leaves them in deep trouble. The main enemy of the game is a giant bird called Wingo. The title begins with both Toad and Toadette searching for a power star, however, upon finding it, Wingo swoops down and kidnaps Toadette. Episode 2 begins with a virtually identical beginning, but Toadette and Toad change places. Overall the story is simply rescue either Toad or Toadette by working your way through 70 3D stages which are designed to puzzle and challenge.

What are your must have eShop games?

Postby Jonah » Sat Jan 03, 2015 9:52 am

Nintendo has started to promote a "must-have" game promotion via the eShop, and due to a lack of eShop conversation on the site, I thought we could discuss our "must-have" eShop buys. The games list can consist of indie and full retail games. I would suggest however that if you are going to mention full retail titles, list your heavily discounted titles like Rayman Legends, which is currently going for a great price on eShop. :OO:

Happy New Year!

It's now 2015! I trust everyone enjoyed their Christmas Holidays and now we've entered into 2015, I'm looking forward to sharing my gaming experiences with members throughout the year. I've been on the quiet side in 2014 due to a heavy work schedule, but I want to try and get back and make regular posts on the site throughout the coming year. We have another big year ahead of us where games are concerned. This year is going to be a big year for Zelda fans! I also wonder if 2015 will be the year that Nintendo treats us to a Wii U version of Animal Crossing. :OO:

Which games are you looking forward to this coming year? Perhaps there's a certain franchise you would love to see revived? Maybe your longing to see the next title/game from a favourite franchise. Share your gaming hopes for 2015 here. :)
