Did you redeem your code for the free game? If so, which did you choose?

Gonna play in half an hour.

The Japanese version has a different offer.
You get to download two games, but only get to play them for free for a month.
If you want to keep them, you can purchase them at 40% off.

Not quite as good as a free game....

Will be here tomorrow for me. Cannot wait to check it out, and I know I have a game I can just keep going back and going back to.

me too.. although I have to pick mine up at Bestbuy (had $20 in rewards to use).  Will most likely be getting Wind Waker as my free game, I never got to play it .. only other option for me was Pikmin 3 since I have all the others.

Played it for an hour last night.
The incredible graphics just highlight how awful Mario Kart Wii was.
To be honest, none of the MK games since Super Mario Kart 64 have felt like a true MK game to me, but MK8 seems to have recaptured the magic.

Yeah if I was smart I would have used my BestBuy Reward points too. I have $35. Oh well have them until August, so will figure out another use for them.

 

And I am going with Pikmin 3 I believe. Either that or NSMB since I do not own it anymore. But I think it will be Pikmin 3. People rave about what a good game it is.

Good idea, if you need to borrow nsmb just let me know..I don't think I beat it yet but I'm sure I won't be revisiting it anytime soon

Got my copy in the post this morning. Wow is all I can say. This is the best game Nintendo have pushed out since the 64. It's one of those games I'm not going to be able to put down for a while.

I grabbed a copy of Sonic (I already own the other better games in the list). The code was delivered instantly.

Just curious, are there any updates for the game? I want to know if when I get home from work I should set it all up and let my WiiU grab any updates or patches it may need to play the game, as it is terribly slow in doing so. Just want to make sure I am all ready to go for when I finally check it out later on at night.

TIA,

DL
