    For anyone who doesn't know, you can now claim stars for digital downloads on Wii U and 3DS. Even the free ones. It's 50 stars a pop, but it all adds up.

    What if you've already bought something?

    I made about 1300 stars from eShop downloads on both consoles. Good times! :)

    If only they didn't expire, eh?

    If only you could use them for something in the eShop.

    Still can't believe they only offer nintendo points and not eShop credit in exchange for stars. So instead doing 2000 stars for 500 nintendo points they could give £5 credit.

    Well I am aiming for that SNES controller, which i'm not too far off of. If anything is set to expire before I reach that goal, i'll covert them to Wii points for VC games.

    At least you Europe-dwellers can exchange your stars for something.

    The only thing I can buy with Club Nintendo Australia stars is Mario placemats, stickers, and assorted other shit I don't want. The closest thing to something I'd find useful is a stylus pack, but it's one for the DS, not the 3DS.

    There are no deals and no games. The only game I can buy is Game & Watch collection for the DS.

    Right, so I have Luigis Mansion already. I want Donkey Kong. I want Animal Crossing (as the free download).

    Which other one from the list shall I get, Castlevania or Lego?

    There's a demo of Castlevania on the eShop. If you've not done so already you should give it a go. Personally, I didn't get on with the controls. Felt a bit stiff and unresponsive.

    I'm also going to take advantage of the deal. Think I'm going to opt for Luigi, Donkey Kong, Fire Emblem and Animal Crossing (as free download).

    I have enough now and am toying with the idea of picking it up. It's lovely but part if me doesn't want another flipping controller option. Still, it'd be nice for VC games.

    I've already got the SNES Wii Controller and it remains in its box unused. A nice novelty item.

    The only worthwhile gift imo is the Game & Watch Collection which is also have.

    They really need to update it with newer items. I weep at what Nintendo Japan has to offer...

    They updates the catalogue a couple of days ago with new items but the items sold out within 24hours. They had more trophies from mario kart 7 up for grabs and a few other things. I just used my points to get the mario statue which looks alright next to my computer.

    @Luckyjim If the d-pad is built as well as the original SNES pads, it should be perfect for the VC. It's always nice to play some games with the intended controller, too.

    If anyone wants a SNES Wii controller and doesn't want to save up a shitload of points, some mug (i.e. me) has already done this and is selling his on that auction site. Item 161017658164 FWIW...

    I think its harder to hit diagonals with the Wii SNES pad than the classic controller. I got one last year and have been using the classic still as my preferred VC controller even though the SNES one feels better to hold.

    I've never been able to pull off shoryukens on SFII Turbo compared to SF on pretty much any other system. So I guess the Wii SNES pad could be pretty authentic and still be shit at diagonals.

    Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!

    It's all about technique! It only took me the best part of a year to master the Shoryukens. On that note, is it still worth picking up Street Fighter IV on the 3DS? I played a bit of it when it first came out, but only local multiplayer really. I'm not the biggest fighting game fan, but i'd play SF2 any day.

    I had the same thought today and gave into temptation. Now have a silver xl. Looking forward to trying it out after work.

    I love my white XL :-)

    Haven't fired it up for a while yet, last thing I did was try out the demo for that Mystery Dungeon game. Impressions - not good :-)

    Back to Fire Emblem!

    What's with the battery life on standby? It's awful. Is that an xl thing or normal as well?

    My vita goes weeks on standby

    My normal lasted 3 hours on a good day while playing, and would be dead after a day even on standby.

    Nintendo accidentally included GBA batteries rather than modern ones in the device.

    @Murbal Have you played Denpa Men? That's a great little dungeon RPG and it has a sequel on the way this month!
