You've probably already heard the news that Club Nintendo has finally launched in the USA. It's basically a brand loyalty program that rewards fans with exclusive trinkets and merchandise. (It's also an awesome direct marketing application for Nintendo!) All you have to do is register your official N merchandise and games to redeem points, which can in turn be redeemed for gifts. Some of the stuff is pretty schweet, including the Game & Watch Collection for the DS. Speaking of, I bought a copy of that for my friend Greg when I was in Japan a few years ago. There was only one copy, so I didn't get one for myself. See how much I love Greg? Did he ever play the damn thing? I need to ask him! It will truly help us to determine if Club Nintendo is really worth the trouble. Well, the traditional Hanafuda cards are pretty hardcore.
The site still seems a little buggy. I can log in, but I can't see my games or coin balance. Will have to try later.
