Actually, Nintendo announces the prize for Platinum status some time after the end of the CN year, so no one knows what we're getting until our statuses are set in stone, lol. In past years, Platinum status-holders have gotten the Mario cap or PunchOut!! Wii special fight download, a Mario Bros. themed statue in a ?-block box, and this past year we got a nifty set of pins.

As always, you can redeem your Coins for cool prizes in the meantime. If you'd like to discuss the normal Club Nintendo rewards, please feel free to do so in this existing thread. Thank you! :3

@OB: idk, i disagree with the idea that purchasing a game at a low price makes it somehow more enjoyable. a mediocre game is a mediocre game no matter how much you pay.
Glory of Heracles for $4 still stank to high heaven, for example

I'm wanting to say that the few people i know who got it back when it came out didn't really like it or never finished it. Not sure, though; it's been a while. though if what Nightwalker says is true re: the random encounters, that kind of thing turns me off anyway.
sorry i can't bring more excitement to this thread, i guess D:

Even if that is true (I don't remember seeing that anywhere), I find it rather convenient that the exact design Nintendo ended up with looks like a small iPad, with buttons.

Like how the Move controller looks conveniently like a Wii Remote? Hmm ;)

yes, but Sakaguchi is Japanese. JRPGs are more about telling a set story, however epic it may be, as opposed to the specific gameplay involved or the player creating their own story — that's why they've got their own distinctive label and we don't lump them all together with actual RPGs.

all righty, my presence has been requested, and so it's time to get this thread back on track.

first of all, to clarify: yes, reader reviews have long been disallowed here on the forums. No, there is nothing in the Community Rules about it, but it's been actively enforced ever since that announcement was made. However, I had given this thread a pass back when it first started because at that point it was a bit more like an 'impressions' thread, which we do allow, and it wasn't the typical 'this is my thread for my reviews' kind of thing that had run rampant around when this particular rule was announced.

I see the thread has morphed more toward actual 'reviews', though, and it needs to get back to 'impressions' — please cool it with the numerical scores and images, keep it to a paragraph or so about how you felt about the game (trim the useless fluff about the game's history/background/etc.), and you should be 'impression'y enough to keep this thread open, guys. If anyone here would like to continue with more complete 'reviews', as always you are more than welcome to post them to your own webspace (a blog, a tumblr, whatever) and then link to them in your profile or signature.

as always, if anyone has any questions about issues of moderation policy and/or the rules in general, you're more than welcome to take them to us directly via the Contact Form and we'll be happy to explain the situation (or take care of the problem, however it works out, lol). thank you! :3
btw, there are no girls on the internets ;)
