Lenin’s Pigeon, and Other Tales of Interest

Lenins Pidgeon
With the tide of Holiday releases unleashed and digested, fragments of info for other gaming destinations have begun surfacing once again, making a pleasant excuse for grab bag posts with misleading headlines.

My itchy trigger fingers got a tease with Digital Reality and Grasshopper Manufacture announcing that their co-developed shooter, Sine Mora, will be exclusively hitting Xbox LIVE Arcade courtesy of Microsoft – the tease of course being the lack of any date or pricing. If you’re unfamiliar with the “diesel-punk shoot ’em up,” I shall again attempt to point your interest in the proper direction – namely here.

And not to be left out of the bullet party, G.Rev released video for their HD release of Under Defeat, which is currently set to hit Japanese Xbox 360’s and PlayStation 3’s next Spring. The buzz so far is that the 360 version will not be region-free, so catch the video below and then commence harassing your publisher of choice. Perhaps we can organize some sort of letter and signal flare campaign…

And finally, Nintendo fans should be made aware that Club Nintendo Rewards will now be offering the chance to trade reward coins for downloadable titles, at least for a little while. I was able to log in briefly to the site, which has since imploded for the day, but the rewards section showed the WiiWare title Fluidity, 3D Classics: Xevious, Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Minis March Again! and the original Super Mario Kart.

Trading coins for digital titles sounds good to me, and wondering how far Nintendo will expand the offering of titles is a pleasant distraction from the debate over what Miyamoto’s interview with Wired does or does not mean.

Your 2010 Elite Status Club Nintendo Reward

From my inbox to your ears comes this year’s reward to those gamers who sacrificed food and clothing to get their fix and feed the Big N, myself included – I hadn’t been paying attention and was surprised at the email.

Anyway, lesson learned – it pays to fill out surveys in the middle of the night because Nintendo’s reward for Platinum Status (600 Coins) this year is a 3.9 by 4.6 inch tribute to Super Mario that I feel will look very awesome in my living room. The choice between this or a calender took exactly 0.01 seconds to make.

Let me know how many of you are expecting one of these in the mail now – now being sometime between today and December that is.

Japanese Club Nintendo Gets…

If only I had a nickel for every time I wrote something along those lines…

Anyway, this time around Japanese Club Nintendo members can reward themselves starting tomorrow with the two disc, 70 song stuffed soundtrack for Super Mario Galaxy 2.

I was expecting the point spread on such an item to be pretty high, but it seems the soundtrack can be had for 500 points, or 300 for those who register the code from their new copy of Galaxy 2.
