The New Club Nintendo Gold and Platinum Prizes = A Reliable Disappointment.
I don’t know why I even bother getting excited about these things anymore. Ever since I was screwed out of my Doc Louis Punch-Out!! demo back in 2009, it’s been hard to not be bitter about the free bones Nintendo tosses out to us fanboys every year. Sure, that trophy back in 2010 turned out to be one of my dresser’s favorite decorations and those pins from last year? Well, they’re in my room somewhere (I think). It’s just that the platinum member’s choice (announced today) between a set of posters and a pack of playing cards feels exceptionally generic.
I guess this is what I deserve for making Nintendo products my financial priority.
I know I’ve been hard on Nintendo when it comes to these prizes. Especially since they’re kind of, sort of (not really) free and all, but come on. Scratch off that Club Nintendo logo and this is stuff that can be found scattered across the floor of every Target across the country. Oh well, there’s always…*sniff*There’s always….ugh, there’s always next year.
