And about time too!

You may remember a while ago we ran a story about Nintendo Australia's inability to control its Club Nintendo prizes.

Posters, DS compilations and WiiWare, oh my!

We knew a North American Club Nintendo update was imminent, but we figured it'd be a small bump in available wares. Instead, Nintendo went and dropped a bunch of other stuff too to vie for your spare change. In case you thought your bathroom wall could use more Mario (and really, whose can't?), you can now plaster it with three Mario posters for 350..

WiiWare game cooks its way out of Japan

The US branch of Club Nintendo, home of posters, cards and, uh, bookmarks, is set to broaden its range a little more with a quirky, bite-sized nugget of a WiiWare game.

Cook from afar for 50 points

Club Nintendo Japan yesterday reminded the other Club Nintendos around the world just how much better it was by adding the first all-member game download to its service.

Take over the world one garden at a time

Club Nintendo in Europe is on top of things. Stuff may be relatively expensive, but the variety and timeliness of gifts is usually much better than its American counterpart. Case in point: for 2000 stars, you can snag your very own blue Pikmin doll. The stuffed buggers are 24 cm, which isn't even close to life-size; kinda makes you wonder whether some sort..

Oh, the decisions US Platinum-level Club Nintendo members have to make. Mario hat or Doc Louis' Punch Out!!?
