It's July 1st, and that means Club Nintendo
is revealing the rewards for loyal members. If you've earned Platinum status (accrued at least 600 coins in the calendar year) you get a sweet set of 25 Mario themed pins. Almost as cool as the Mario hat they had a couple years back.
If you reached Gold status (300 coins or more) you get!....a desk calendar. Sigh. It is a cool calendar, but come on Nintendo, don't make gold members feel like the unloved child, again.
You had a lame calendar last year! At least give us a deck of those hanafuda cards, or a Wii remote holder or something.
