Yes! Fire Emblem confirmed! This makes me happy.
They do expire. But I don't know how long they take. The club nintendo site tells you how many stars expire at the end of the current month.

I've found them to be of high quality. The paper is MUCH better than the paper of posters that are given out for free at conventions and whatnot.

Though, I got them mainly cause I am a big fan of the Zelda games, if you want to save you're points for something better that could be coming along, it's probably the wiser thing to do. Unless of course you are planning to buy a couple more Nintendo products or have some sort of stash to use if it comes up.
Re: Wii U stuff (2 years ago)
I think it was more the DSi which caused problems for the 3DS. The DSi being launched as a DS with improvements, but not a new system, and then the 3DS, which seems like "oh they added 3D too".

But I have the feeling they'll just re-name it to something different.
Bugger. Your right, its $11. I shouldnt try counting so late at night :/

I guess I'll be hitting that then. I thought there was a bundle or some sort. Ahhh Nintendo making me buy your 1/2 assed stuff and a refresh.
Oh! There is a bundle. here: http://www.ebgames.com.au/3ds-999713-Resident-Evil-Revelations--3DS-Circle-Pad-Pro-bundle-Nintendo-3DS

It comes out to a whopping $1.00 cheaper.
It's $23 at EB Games, and yes it's coming out Thursday: https://www.ebgames.com.au/3ds-156479-3DS-Circle-Pad-Pro-Nintendo-3DS
I'd buy it.
Also good new, we get the game FIRST outside of Japan. Europe gets it the day after.

We get it the 23rd Feb

I feel though that this was some sort of attack on my enjoyment of the game, which I hope is not the case. Is it wrong to enjoy this game?

No man enjoy the game all you want, just don't go around saying stuff like people should enjoy things for what they're designed to do, it comes off as condecending. I didn't like what it was designed.
Ah, I see. I must apologize, I did not mean to be condescending and will be more careful with that in future then.

Having read this through it makes me sad. Sad that my favourite game of 2011 isn't being enjoyed as much as it could.

I wish people could just enjoy creative works for what they are designed to do. icon_sad.gif
See this **** is what pisses me off. Ok you like it and I don't. That's one thing, but this pervasive attitude that the people that don't enjoy the game are somehow playing it wrong or something? Like there's this great game underneath it all and we just can't see it for some reason?

What the **** is with that? It's this attitude that, instead of admitting a game has it's faults and isn't perfect but you enjoy it anyway. Wich is perfectly fine, I love the Assassins Creed games but they're far from perfect. But the overall attitude to people that dislike Skyward Sword seems to be "Well you're just not playing it right"

It's **** infuriating.
Uhh. Umm. Thats not what I was intending at all? Maybe it was the smiley, but I was merely expressing honest sadness that some people didnt enjoy the game, as I know it is possible to be enjoyed.

And no, its not that people 'play it wrong'. And no, its not underneath anything, I think it is a great game.

I wasn't telling you to like it, I wasn't telling you it was prefect, I didn't say it was faultless, I said it was my favourite game of 2011. That is all.

I'm sorry if it came off as some sort of strange persuasive maneuver or something of the sort.
Having not grown up with OoT, I find SS better than OoT.

People are different.

Looks like they needed to be registered within certain dates. So looks like I won't be able to enter unless I buy two new games. This is particularly frustrating considering that I have 7 3DS games and will be unable to enter because I entered the codes too quick.
I entered OoT when I bought it so I'd have enough points to get the zelda posters, and it counted that and said I was elegible as soon as I registered Mario Kart 7.

It may be that you have to register at least one of the elegible games during the promotion period. Or it might be an error.

I registered my two games but yet to see an email or notification. Does anybody know how long it takes?
This took me a while as it isnt very intuitive. You have to click on the side box that says you have registered 2 valid products click here to register email (or something along those lines). It then opens the promotion page and after waiting a few seconds a box pops up that asks for an email address. After that you get a confirmation email, which asks you to wait for up to 10 days for the code.

This was the game of the year in 2011. I actually MISS playing it. It was a fantastic achievement by Nintendo. It has restored my interested back in the Zelda universe after Twlight Princess.
Here, Here!

I thought it was wonderful. icon_smile.gif
And regisered. icon_smile.gif
Sure its unlikely i will win, but hey, a free 3DS? I have no qualms.

In hindsight, i shoulda picked the peach 3DS as i would see that as one that is least popular.
Im guessing we have to wait.
Or we probably wont ever get it.
I already have Majoras Mask on wii virtual console anyway.
From the games I've actuyally played I list my GOTY as Skyward Sword and the runner up as Xenoblade. Having not played much at all of the other nominations I can't comment on any of them.
The Hero defeated?
Hmm, I thought it would make more sense if the child's timeline was split into: gannondorf executed and gannndorf succseful.

Personly I want them to explain what the **** is going on in skyward sword being like a post appocalyse from a highly technologically advacned society.
That ****'s just a ****.
I just assumed that said apocalypse was explained in the intro sequence

You can get a portable charger from DX for $13.83 (iirc). They're surprisingly good quality and charge everything except an iPad. It fully charges a 3ds with some power to spare. Not sure why more people don't use them, TBH. They're much nicer than those Nyko things.
Do you know if any of these portable chargers are found in retail stores?

Unfortunately, minor damage to the corners of the Zelda posters since it looks like the posters were flung around a bit inside the shipping carton icon_sad.gif
That sucks, Mine where shipping in a cardboard cylinder, so there where no corner damages. Actually I was kinda surprised with how quickly and in good shape they got here. I should have ordered that kirby pouch, too, but I have to do those damned surveys.
Wow. If this gets a English translation, I'm buying me some copies.

Also, intriguing split. I must investigate further.
Re: Mario Kart 7 (2 years ago)
Hmmm. Did you try the other code on the second page? The first Community set-up was apparently buggy.

Also, I think, due to the small size of the group times for people to get on and race would need to be organized here. I've not yet managed to have a race. icon_sad.gif
It's better than the 3 I get from my iPod.
You can indeed, just hold select down when you begin the game. (Or maybe its Start and Select)
Yup, its the new Manga by Akira Himekawa. They have one small book each for most games in the series. OoT and FS have 2.

That'll probably be just a single book. I don't think it'll be a series.
The Japanese Club Nintendo has a Golden Nunchuck up on their site. Lucky.

Has anyone tried playing the games in their original screen size?
I could have sworn my GBA screen was bigger than that.
