Wiiware and VC - Claim your stars!

Post by Mire Mare » Mon Apr 27, 2009 11:49 am

I'm guessing a few members here have downloaded vc games to their Wii's.

Way back when the VC was launched the old Nintendo website said that we could get stars for our VC downloads. It seems they've finally got around to implementing this.

If you've linked your Wii to your Club Nintendo account then head over to http://www.nintendo.co.uk and sign in.

Click on the "My Account" button, then click on "See all registered games and systems" near the bottom of the page.

I've got 5 pages to look through and plenty of these to click on Image

clicking on that blue button takes you to a much shorter survey than normal star redemption vouchers and 50 stars!

Clicking the blue button has brought up this a few times. Image but hopefully this will get sorted soon and I won't have to contact Nintendo.


What are you waiting for? Get redeeming!!

That's pretty cool... But it looks like you only get to review downloads you have made since you registered for Club Nintendo. My last few downloads were shown but not the ones I did before registering... All the same, free stars/points is good!

I redeemed 100 stars so far. 50 for Rolling Thunder 2 and 50 for something else. It gives me the error screen for the other 3.

I have about 15 VC games, and I could only get my stars for about 5 of them...

But thanks for the tip, I didn't know! I have my eye set on a specific prize, I just need a few more stars! :lol:

Think I have 375 stars, nothing worth getting with them though. :(

Thanks for that! Managed to claim stars agains a couple of games - some didn't work but now the website has died on me. Will try again another time, so I'll end up having enough stars to turn into Wii Points!

I checked my account again today and the Waluigi issue seems to have been rectified so I was able to collect the stars for all the remaining games;

Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels
Super Mario World
Street Fighter II The World Warrior
Super Probotector Alien Rebels

I emailed Nintendo about the problem a couple of days ago so perhaps that helped.

Ive just signed up to club nintendo and registered every thing i could find. Ive now got a total of 2850 stars! Cheers.

Ive got about 10 vc games already (before registering) and couldnt find any way of redeeming these though.

One thing, however, has worried me. Ive got a limited edition resident evil 4 themed gamecube which i registered but i can find no sign of the game anywhere. Does any one know if the game comes packaged with the console or in its own box? I can remember playing it so i at least know that ive had it in my possession, I just cant remember much else. What bugs me is that im always so careful with my stuff. i cant ever imagine losing something so easily and im really worried tbh. Im absoloutely certain that i didnt sell/trade it either.

If there is no box the where the fook is the disc? Ive checked all my other GC boxes :evil: .

Sh1t! just checked you tube, its boxed. I seriously need to start looking harder. I hate losing stuff. :evil: :evil: :evil:

EDIT - Found it! In the poofay. Im happy again. :)

Thanks for the heads up on this. Now I have enough stars to get a points code and get another VC game! :D

I've claimed my stars as well, no problems. But I'm still a few hundred short to get Metroid Zero Mission... :roll:

All the ones I was having problems with the other day have registered ok now.

I want that Link statue! 15,000 stars will take a lifetime to collect though!
