BLOG – Club Nintendo Aug 2012

Nintendo has been stepping up the digital downloads for their Club Nintendo service over the last several week by offering more games for a shorter amount of time – instead of having a couple games available for one straight month, they have been breaking it up by offering a new game every couple weeks.  This …

BLOG – Club Nintendo July 2012

Unlike other months, Nintendo is only offering two downloadable games this month in exchange for Club Nintendo Coins – one for WiiWare and one for 3DS eShop. Mario Tennis 64 was a pretty solid tennis game back in the days of the N64.  Four players can compete same-sofa multiplayer and even play creative mini games …

BLOG – GameStop’s GameStock 2012 Sale

GameStop is currently having a GameStock 2012 sales promotion going on.  In celebration of July 4th, all used Wii games are 25% off on July 4th and 5th only.  Today, I made a couple of purchases. Now, I am not really one to take my Wii very seriously.  In fact, I don’t think anyone really …

BLOG – FoxHound T-Shirt

Thanks to Gamestop and 12,400 Rewards Points, I am about to be the owner of a brand new FoxHound t-shirt.  Yeah, I could have ordered some more Wii or PSN space bucks, but I could not pass this up. Here is a pic:

BLOG – Gamestop Trip, Buying Used Stuff

Several weeks ago, I wrote about my Gamestop adventures buying clearance GBA games.  Well today I made a random trip to a local Gamestop and walked out with some more random stuff. The one part of my trip that was not random is Chrono Trigger. I have had the DS version on my “must buy” …

BLOG – Club Nintendo May 2012

Well, it is the beginning of a new month and you know what that means.  Yup, a different set of download titles from Club Nintendo in exchange for Nintendo Coins.  Unfortunately, this month’s lot isn’t exactly what I would call the highest quality.

If you have not joined Club Nintendo, you should as Nintendo is basically going to give you stuff for free.  And free is good.  Especially when you get something with higher quality.
