Yep, I'm talking about it. Club Nintendo's rewards sucked. Let's all admit it, can we? There is no way anyone is content spending as much as they did only to game some games, and to top it off, either VC games or ones already in promos (Game and Wario and DKCR come to mind). Who would think getting Earthbound would be a worthy Platinum prize, or even NES Remix!? Let's put it into context for those unaware:

3DSes usually give out 160 coins and most Wii U games give out 50, with maybe 20 extra, while 3DS might do 40 with the same extras. Give or take you can just buy the codes, and intending to buy on the site does still give extra coins, the fact still remains that to get Platinum, you need 600 coins.


   Why would you go into a system thatonly gives out cheap digitals as yearly prizes when they ALREADY SELL GAMES MONTHLY!? I'm absolutely sure that most of the games were already for sale the months before in their digital service. In fact, their physical reward system is really lacking, isn't it?


   But there are two things I find infuriating about this; people are actually defending this! I regular My Nintendo News, and I noticed a putrid amount of defending of such a system, constantly stating that they're free games (as stated no they're not) and that we shouldn't complain. Fanboys/girls like that are exactly why this is allowed to happen. As I have mentioned, Cole never got changed because Sucker Punch felt like it, and Microsoft didn't change the check in policy because they felt like having some sudden change of heart for no reason; people spoke out about it.

   Hold on, wasn't there something else people were speaking out about? I could've sworn it was something about Pokemon and an app. It even got idiots like Smosh (they aren't ones to talk about things delaying, at least Nintendo didn't E-beg) to make stagnant jokes mixing in with other even more stale jokes (HEY, HOW'S DAT HALF LIFE GUISE?? PLEASE RETWEET!). You couldn't even go on Twitter without hearing about the Bank! But the most you'll hear are people either just okay or defending this garbage.

   You have to let Nintendo know that this is awful, otherwise it will only get worse. I'm at least a bit hopeful that in the FAQ of the Club Nintendo Platinum Status for 2015 it mentions shipping, but I'd imagine it's only just legal talk.
