BLOG – Club Nintendo November 2013 Summary

Spend, Spend, Spend! –

In terms of game quality, November is probably the highest rated month throughout all of 2013. A Link to the Past, the unforgettable SNES installment, is the perfect hype builder for A Link Between World’s launch later this month, Dillon’s Rolling Western has been a critical and commercial success unique to the 3DS eShop, Metroid is one of the most epic NES titles to ever grace the system, and Cubello is a WiiWare title that you never knew existed. Hopefully you have several hundred coins saved up because this is the month to redeem.

Zelda SNES

Game #1 – The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (Wii Virtual Console, SNES)

Price – 150 Coins, normally 800 Wii Points ($8)

Availability – Nov. 4 2013 – Dec. 12, 2013

Summary – The beloved SNES Legend of Zelda adventure.

Opinion – It is no coincidence Nintendo is offering this title for free in the month of November 2013 with A Link Between Worlds launching in just a couple of weeks.

Worth Your Club Nintendo Coins? – Yes, absofrigginglutely!

 

Dillons Rolling West 3DS

Game #2 – Dillon’s Rolling Western (3DS eShop)

Price – 200 Coins, normally $9.99

Availability – Nov. 4 2013 – Dec. 12, 2013

Summary – A new take on tower defense that incorporates 3rd person action.

Opinion – With high critical praise and enough sales to spawn a sequel, this is one game that should not be passed up.

Worth Your Club Nintendo Coins? Besides being a quality game, it is one of the few proprietary 3DS eShop titles Nintendo has offered for the Club Nintendo program. Take advantage of the situation while it lasts.

 

Metroid NES

Game #3 – Metroid (3DS Virtual Console, NES)

Price – 150 Coins, normally $4.99

Availability – Nov. 4 2013 – Dec. 12, 2013

Summary – The first game in the Metroid series.

Opinion – Undoubtedly, the original Metroid is a quality game. Even though the save state feature is a great for this game, new comers might be turned off by the lack of map or guidance system. It is a challenge. Are you up for it?

Worth Your Club Nintendo Coins? – If you have enough coins after getting A Link to the Past and Dillon’s Rolling Western, then yes. The other two games should take priority over Metroid through.

 

Cubello

Game #4 – Art Style: Cubello (WiiWare)

Price – 150 Coins, normally 600 Wii Points ($6)

Availability – Nov. 4 2013 – Dec. 12, 2013

Summary – A single player puzzle game that plays like a light-gun shooter.

Opinion – The black sheep of games offered this month, Cubello could actually be that sleeper hit that you never played.

Worth Your Club Nintendo Coins? – If you have coins left over and are looking for something a little different and underplayed, then Cubello is worth a look.
