2014 Elite Status Gift
Yesterday, Club Nintendo American site went under maintenance right after releasing the Elite Status Gifts for the Gold and Platinum members. Now don’t get your hopes ups just yet, basically, the bad news is: all the rewards are eShop games, the good news is: they’re actually pretty good games, except it’s a bummer if you already have them all…
I know it’s probably Nintendo of America’s way of saving money, but I was expecting real prizes as well. On the flip side though, they’re letting you get really good games like Dillon’s Rolling Western, Dr. Luigi, Earth Bound, and EVEN some games that are already available at retail, like Game & Wario and Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D!
But to be honest, I was really disappointed in Club Nintendo. And I’m actually glad I didn’t make it to Gold status this year. Only because I would NOT have been able to get a new 2015 calendar. Which really stinks because next year’s the Year of Marty McFly, and well…
I’ll see you later, guys.

P.S. Don’t forget to click the link above, that’s where you’ll find a full list of the available games for this year.
Not one, not two, but THREE new challengers had been announced this morning! If you haven’t seen the video yet, watch it NOW!
Today, the Super Smash Bros. Facebook page announced that “[a] new challenger will be revealed next week…”
Instead of having another Nintendo Direct special, SmashBros.com will be hosting a live stream video that’ll be approximately 3 minutes long. The live stream will be airing next week on July 14th in North America at 7:00am PDT, the UK at 3:00pm BST/4:00pm CEST, and on July 15th in Australia at Midnight AEST.
I’ll see you later!

Just today, Nintendo announced that they will be hosting a new tournament to promote Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS at the San Diego Comic Con! Fans will be able to participate in the tournament on July 25th at the Nintendo Gaming Lounge in the Marriot Marquis & Marina near the San Diego Convention Center (where Comic Con will be held).
"Starting at noon, there will be a preliminary round in which groups of four competitors battle it out, with the winner advancing. During the finals, players will duke it out one-on-one to determine the top smasher. Tournament slots are limited, and fans will be able to sign up the day of the event on a first-come, first-served basis."
If you’re unfortunately not attending Comic Con you can always watch the tournament on Twitch.tv. (Which is convenient for you social networking dudes…)
I’ll see ya later!
