Oh, the decisions US Platinum-level Club Nintendo members have to make. Mario hat or Doc Louis' Punch Out!!?
If you're a Gold member, the decision is much easier since you only get the option of a 2010 Animal Crossing-themed calendar. Still, if you're eligible and haven't cashed in on this yet, you might want to get on that as today is the last day to do so.
So the question is simple: Mario hat or Doc Louis' Punch Out!!?
I got the Punch Out game. I can always buy the hat on Ebay
I went for the hat, because I need a permanent and tangible reminder of just how much money I threw at Nintendo over the past year.
I got the game, and so should anyone who likes Punch-Out!! even in the slightest. Oh, and Jonathan, the first mention of Doc Louis' Punch-Out!! spells his name "Lous."
Good call, Odnetnin! I shall fixaroo.
I got the hat, mainly because it claims it is "one size fits all" which usually DOESN'T fit me when it comes to hats.
Not a very tough decision for me as I have 2 platinum Club Nintendo accounts!
This was probably one of the toughest decisions I have ever made. Is that bad?
Damnit i picked the hat the moment they were anounced and then i realised that the punch out game sounds much better, now nintendo wont let me change it even though they havent sent the hat.
I chose Punch-Out, it's the only way I can get it, I can jus tbuy the hat off eBay or something.
bought the hat cause sorry to say i'm not a fan of the Punch out series
"Not a very tough decision for me as I have 2 platinum Club Nintendo accounts! "
You disgust me.
"This was probably one of the toughest decisions I have ever made. Is that bad?"
Same here. But yeah, that's probably bad.
"bought the hat cause sorry to say i'm not a fan of the Punch out series "
You should be very sorry to say that. Jk.
I got the Mario hat....just got to wait for it to get here
Doc Louis's Punch-Out!! for me. I choose a free game over a hat any day.
My decision was even easier. I was only gold.
I'm sad! because I'm only a gold rank
Not much of a punch-out fan, so I got the hat
so i went for the calender im only a gold member im sure that would have changed if they alowed my wii to give me club nintendo points
I don't think I'll be able to add all my games in time.
Ill prob just sell the hat on ebay so you guys can buy mine. Ill then buy a game with the profits.
@slapshot82 Sell it for $10.00, please.
I got Punch Out. (The only hat I really want is the rooster hat. )
I am getting the Punch-Out!! game. I can't wait to beat Doc for giving me lame advice. "Join Club Nintendo today Mac." Why would I think of that when I am getting my face pounded by crazy boxers.
It was a really tough decision for me, but I ended up choosing the hat. I'm not really sure the game is worth it if it's just a single battle.
Phew i'm glad i claimed my prize. Which is Punch-Out
Got Punch-Out. Can always get the hat off ebay.
"I am getting the Punch-Out!! game. I can't wait to beat Doc for giving me lame advice. "Join Club Nintendo today Mac." Why would I think of that when I am getting my face pounded by crazy boxers."
Because then you can go online, register games, choose Doc Louis' Punch-Out!!, and then beat him up for giving you the advice in the first place. It's quite an interesting paradox.
Got the hat. I CAN'T WAIT FOR IT IT!!!
Hey! Is there anyone here who would sell me his/her unused wii download number for this game? Seriously, since Club Nintendo isnt available in my country and I am a collector.
@7.Alejandro_Talavera - I don't think the download code will work as it's region specific.
I held one of those Mario cushions the other day and they're quite nice, although I was disappointed I couldn't wear it on my head.
@Prosody - Wouldnt it work if I changed my country settings to U.S.?
Hat, easily. I have no desire to pick up a 1 level game that should just be on WiiWare.
I got the hat. I'm not a big Punch-Out!! fan.
I went for Punch-Out myself (I have a US Wii!).
i got punch-out
the hat isn't in stores so i got that
"I got the hat. I'm not a big Punch-Out!! fan."
I have a feeling the Punch-Out will be avaialble somewhere down the line (plus can't it be gifted?). Look at the Game & Watch Collections. If I'm not mistaken they are being torn apart and shoved onto DSiWare.
Then again, look at Exclamation Warriors and Tingle's Balloon fight...
Whoa. I thought the calendar was a general Nintendo-themed one, and not just Animal Crossing... this is a concern of mine, since I'm only a lowly Gold member, (No jokes, please) and not a huge AC guy. Any clarification?
Hat all the wayy!!! Seriously, there has never been an officially liscensed Mario hat. Every one I've ever seen was fan made...
I cashed in 800 points for the hanafunda card set, earing me platinum status in the process, and was overhoyed when I found out about the hat --- Punchout just doesn't interest me that much; I want something red and tangible to go with my overalls!!!
the punch out game is just one fighter, only for the die-hards
so i got the hat bc im a die hard mario fan
got the hat fo sho
The gold status reward was down right Terrible. I wrote nintendo and told them to keep the $&?! Calendar and I suggest more people do the same.
Wait a minute, I'm confused. Wasn't there an article on this site a while back that said we have until june 30 to register with club Nintendo to claim these prizes? Now you are saying today is the deadline? Somebody clear this up for me. I haven't registered yet so am I too late?
Apparently I haven't bought enough crap to qualify for the hat or the punch-out game.
