SBCG4AP/Club Nintendo question

posted by CKcheeseboy on - last edited - Viewed by 697 users

Sorry if this is the wrong board for this, but I figured around here would be a good place to ask.

(If you don't feel like reading the next paragraph, I've posted a quick question right after it)

Has anybody here with a Club Nintendo account been able to take surveys or anything for the 3 eligible SB episodes? I had linked my Wii Shop Channel and Nintendo account a while ago, so it knows that I bought them, but I can't seem to get coins for them. They show up under "Earn Coins", but all I see is a big picture of a coin with "0 coins" and "Product Registration" under it below a "To-Do List" heading. I don't see any kind of link for a survey or anything, though. I haven't registered anything else yet, so I don't know exactly how the process is supposed to work, but from what I've read, I don't know why I can't do anything. The FAQ says it may take 4-6 weeks for the "Post-Play" survey to appear, but I downloaded 3&4 around when 4 came out, so I should at least see them. The only thing I can think is that the surveys will appear 4-6 weeks from when Club Nintendo launched/relaunched, which probably hasn't passed yet.

Long story short: Has anybody else been able to take a survey for the 3 eligible SBCG4AP games, or is it something that nobody can do just yet?

Also, for the Telltale employees, any idea why only 3 of the 5 episodes are eligible? It seems a little random, and it kind of stinks that we lose out on those 20 coins.

  • The VC and Wiiware games that are eligible seem to be based on a very specific cutoff date, which happens to be between two of the Strong Bad episodes.

    Also, I think you're probably right that the survey will show up 4 to 6 weeks after the club officially opened, since that's probably when the internal system "registered" the game for you.

  • I know nothing about Club Nintendo, sorry. :o LuigiHann's probably right about the cutoff date, but I can ask our contacts at Nintendo if there's any chance of getting the other two games included in the surveys (which two are missing?)

    What do these coins get you?

  • Emily, check out http://club.nintendo.com/ There's some nifty stuff there.

    You can read the list of eligible games here. The first two Strong Bad episodes are the ones missing, because they were released before whatever date was chosen. Really can't complain about free stuff, but it is a bit unfortunate that older VC and Wiiware games don't count, since it's not like they're out of print or anything.

  • I havent been able to get Club Nintendo to work since I signed up. it always logs me out whenever I try to register something.

  • Someone should ask Strong Bad "You owe me 30 coins! Where are they?!" I know it wouldn't accomplish much, but maybe it might be good for humorous extent.

  • Club Nintendo USA is very buggy and ther is many problems so you'r not alone.

  • Thanks, hopefully within the next couple of weeks it will start working. Have any of you registered any other WiiWare/VC games? The SB ones are the only ones I have, so I don't know if the problem is just with them or if all WW/VC games are down for the 4-6 week period. I guess there's not much to do but wait and see, though.

    Well, they took it down for a few days for maintenance and brought it back up, and it didn't seem like people had many problems after that. I was registering some other games earlier and it worked fine, too.

  • I couldn't figure out how to register WiiWare games...?

    Well I can't even log in!

    You have to link your Wii to your Club Nintendo account since those games don't have registration numbers. The process is explained here:

    Once you link them together, it automatically knows what WiiWare/VC games/Wii Channels you have downloaded.

    Hmm, I'm not sure why. Have you tried it in the past week? They only brought it back up about a week ago. Hopefully you can get it to work.
