Nintendo Okie Podcast – Episode 300.5

I thought I could let 300 go by without cutting together a bunch of clips to celebrate. I was wrong. I made this in a hurry and I think all of it has been published at some point. Still, it seems like a cool way to look back on the past six years. From the bottom of my heart, to all of you, thank you. I hope you enjoy this because I just lost a couple hours of sleep cutting it. Enjoy!

Nintendo Okie Podcast – Episode 113

Puns, puns, puns.  This show is full of all kinds of quality jokes.  Not only that, but we talk about video games too.  With Micah out to some sort of real-life activity, we call in Mr. Steve Conger from thegamesmen.com to help us out.  After this show is over you can expect to be smarter about Xenoblade Chronicles, Kid Icarus: Uprising and Zen Pinball 3D.  And as always, you will get the latest in our obsession with the Uprising AR cards.

Nintendo Okie Podcast – Episode 112

This week’s show is top notch, folks.  Dare I say it’s the greatest podcast of all time?  I dare.  We talk a little more Uprising as well as a few news games for the crew; Skylanders, Radiant Historia, Metal Torrent and Skullgirls.  As you may expect, we continue to talk about AR cards ruining our lives as well as Capcpom’s lack of spelling.  Tony helps me with my confusion about Project Rainfall and Micah I go from talking about Brawl to having an actual brawl.  Then out of nowhere, Tony has a totally none-PG breakdown when he reads a quote wrong.  Stay tuned after the ending song for that clip.

Club Nintendo To Offer Kid Icarus AR Cards

For those of you that missed out on the first run of the exclusive Club Nintendo AR Cards for Kid Icarus: Uprising and were jealous that European fans were getting booster packs of the cards, fear not! A customer service rep for Club Nintendo has confirmed that North American fans will be able to get the cards through Club Nintendo.

“Thank you for your feedback on the Club Nintendo services. I have forwarded your message to theappropriate department.

It is already our plan to release the cards on the Club Nintendo Rewards Program. When they well be available is still undecided but we are indeed working on it! “

I’ve got my three exclusive Club Nintendo cards, the Game Informer card and the April issue of Nintendo Power’s three cards. I’m glad I’ve saved up some of my Club Nintendo coins because I’ll be ordering these as soon as they’re available.  No details on when they’ll be available or how many coins it will cost.  250 coins wouldn’t be out of the realm of possibility.

Oh Sakurai, How You Tease

As if I wasn’t already excited enough about Kid Icarus: Uprising releasing this week, (Yea the game is almost out and I’ll shut up about it soon.), Sakurai took to Twitter to post this image you see here.  It’s a booster pack of AR cards for the game, and it has a little bit of wording there at the bottom, “Pre-order special pack, 24 cards”.  This is coming from a Twitter account that has his name, but is also labeled as Nintendo of Europe.  Could this just be a pre-order bonus that Europeans will get, or does this possibly signal a pre-order bonus that will be waiting for us as well when we pick up the game on Friday?

Oh, how I hope that’s the case.  I’ll only have four AR Cards and there is some pretty cool stuff that the game uses them for.  Some of the early buzz is that these cards will also help unlock new weapons in the game.  You can get them through playing, or if you scan these cards the information will show up in your Kid Icarus Weapon Pokedex (my own term) in the game.

Free AR Cards For Kid Icarus: Uprising

If you’re looking for ways to get your hands on some AR cards for Kid Icarus: Uprising then I’ve got a deal for you.  Nintendo is giving away three free cards through Club Nintendo.  I know it’s not as exciting as the 12 cards that Europe gets, but we get ours for free.  You just need to go to the official Kid Icarus page on Nintendo’s website and redeem them.  It’s that simple.  If you don’t have a Club Nintendo account now would be the perfect time to sign up for one.

And yes, I redeemed mine about five minutes after I find out about the offer.
