I did a little reasearch, and on OCTOBER 27TH Is when there is 10 weeks left in the 2011 year! Get it? 10 weeks, 10 games. Hmm... Looks like Nintendo will release them weekly! If you do enough internet reasearch, you will see that my theory is correct.

That doesn't mean anything. They could be released any time between now and the end of the year.

True, but is it a coincidence that the 3DS NES CN coins registration expires on October 27th? If it was November 1st or October 1st, I would understand. But October 27th? Coincidence? I THINK NOT!

So registration expires after 8 weeks. What does that have to do with the GBA games?

I'm just saying.
It's a little weird that they would use the date OCTOBER 27TH.
And, October 27th is when there is 10 more weeks in the 2011 year!
10 Weeks for 10 Games!
Chances are I'm wrong.
But if i'm right, I CALLED IT!

NES games were released all at once. GBA will be released all at once.

Actually, doing something eShop-related on a Thursday is pretty normal.

Why wouldn't they just release them all on December 31st at 11:59 PM?

Well no kidding!
But October 27th?
Why not October 20th or November 4th?
But October 27th?
Something's not right here.

This seems like circular logic to me. You'd say the same thing if the date were October 20 or November 4.

October 27th is when there are 10 weeks left in the 2011 year, so yes, it is weirder than any other Thursday.

Hey, guess what?
There are actually 20 games! Who knew, right!?
Ever think about that? It is completely silly to believe that the games would be given out just because there happens to be 10 more weeks left of the year because that just HAPPENS to be the same number of games given out (even though there are actually twenty!). I seriously doubt that Nintendo would spread it out and make us wait. It is ridiculous. I'll be waiting on the 27th, and just you wait and see. There will not be anything there. As much as I want to have them, they will not be there.
Now, please stop blabbering.

Chances are, I'm wrong.
But if i'm right, i just wanna be the one that

Huh? That makes no logical sense whatsoever. Based on the info from the Club Nintendo news feed, October 27 is (currently) the most likely date they'll come in, but I don't think Nintendo would change their policy from 10 games in one week to one game a week for 10 for the GBA Ambassador games. These games are meant to reward early 3DS adopters; why make us wait even longer for them to come in?

Exactly.

Ambassadors are receiving 20 games in total, 10 NES and 10 GBA games. We got the NES games September 1st, and now the discussion has turned to when the GBA games will release and what the 5 games we don't for sure yet are. Currently, our best guess as to when the GBA games will be released is October 27 because that's the date the Club Nintendo news feed says Ambassadors need to link their 3DSs to their CN account to receive coins for the post-play surveys.

Exactly.

Your entire argument is based on the idea of them being released sequentially, however everything is indicating a release all at once as was done with the NES, I highly doubt this will be the route taken

You're probably right.
But there's a tiny chance that I'm right.
We'll see.
PLUS, GBA Games have a bigger file size and is just a bigger & longer game in general.
It would be more of a hassle to download and play 10 huge games!

I dont think Nintendo wants to dick around with these GBA titles for a select number of 3DS owners. They have better things to do with big upcoming games like the new Kirby, Zelda, Mario Land 3D and Mario Kart.
