    What? That's pretty lame...

    How will I get free Mario-themed stuff?

    ...Oh wait, they're just replacing it. That's not too bad.

    Club Nintendo in Europe will be replaced by a new loyalty programme, though it's unclear what it's about:

    it's useless anyway maybe if they offered better prizes instead of shitty pencil cases and playing cards it would have been more successful!

    I have +465 coins(I have surveys to do) and the only thing I can get are shitty games, I don't live in USA and they don't ship outside. hell, they don't even let you register if you are not from USA.

    Well, now that I took a look they have Super Metroid for Wii U, I was waiting them to put it again, so I better grab it before is too late.

    EDIT: oops... Super Metroid is the Wii version, not Wii U. HATE YOU FOREVER NIN10DOH :hateit:

    The only thing I'm annoyed about is the fact that I dec ided to NOT register a second hand 3DS's code last month along with Smash Bros 3DS to redeem a free 3DS game because I thought they were going to do another free game promotion again in the future. Either way, I have 5700 points saved up since I bought my 3DS and I hope they include some nice physical goods before it closes for good.

    Points, coins, vague promise of future deals, reworking systems as people get used to them... Nintendo may not know online games, downloadable games/content or seemingly what made them successful originally but they do know their scams it seems.

    Yes, I saw news about Club Nintendo to be discontinued when I log in my account at Club Nintendo.

    Problems will affect Nintendo Wii and Nintendo DSi when you have Club Nintendo account would stop working after June 30, 2015. RIP Club Nintendo system on Nintendo Wii and DSi on year 2015. :(

    If they replace it with a better service, it is not a big deal IMO, but everyone with a crapton of points will be screwed.

    It is a shame I never could use it because lack of official support here and lack of international shipping. :/
