I guess I will pick up Super Metroid and Kirby. F-Zero has aged horribly...

I already paid 8 bucks for F-Zero on the Wii and felt ripped off

@anon_mastermind ohh poppycock.... 30 cents..... ugh lol. Then get the game and talk crap on it on the miiverse. Pay the money to let people know you have the game and your opinion is valid.

thats what i did with balloon fight, i just talk about it on miiverse all the time and paid 30 cents so i dont seem like my opinions are biased.

I'm definitely buying F-Zero, Punch-Out and Donkey Kong. I already own Kirby and Super Metroid on the Wii Virtual Consle, and Yoshi on Game Boy, so I'm less excited for those. I don't enjoy playing on the small GamePad screen as much as others seem to. But on the other hand....30 cents! Plus Club Nintendo coins!


Is F-Zero really that bad? Granted, I haven't played it in 20 years, but I did enjoy the GBA version. Also keep in mind that I have a bias towards early SNES games, and really enjoy stuff like Pilotwings, so I can't see myself hating F-Zero.

You make a good point. Have people gotten a club Nintendo survey for Balloon Fight? If so, how many? 10 Club Nintendo coins is probably worth 30 cents considering that $5+ games are often 100 coins.

I just checked my Club Nintendo account, and I have a 10 coin post play survey for Balloon Fight ready to be filled out.

Hmm... so if I bought all 7 it would cost me about $2 and give me 70 coins, which is pretty close to a free game. Yea, I might as well I guess.

Oh I'll still be in the F-Zero Miiverse... posting about how they should make a new game for Wii U. Don't need the checkmark to do that.

If you liked the ambassador F-Zero, you'll probably like the SNES game although it's more rough around the edges.

Yeah, whats wrong with Yoshi? Its a great puzzley game. Intense!

Zero said:
Yeah Yoshi kind of sucks, it's the only one up there that I'm literally like "30 cents? I'd rather buy an Airhead." The rest I will probably grab up.

You were JUST complaining yesterday of tooth ailments. Buy Yoshi, and save a molar!


Someone should release a game called "Super Metch." It just sounds awesome.

Didn't even think of getting Club Nintendo coins for this...too bad we don't have anything to buy with them in Australia...
