Editor’s Choice: Best Of Club Nintendo’s Final Games

The announcement that Club Nintendo is closing in July of this year was met with much chagrin. While the death of such a unique loyalty program is lamentable, Nintendo promised to make the Club go out with a bang.

With just a few months left in its life, Club Nintendo made the final reward offerings live this week, giving Nintendo fans plenty to spend their hard earned coins on. The final round of physical rewards includes a slew of Zelda-themed items including a Majora’s Mask messenger bag, a Fierce Deity Link jigsaw puzzle, and a Zelda 3DS XL pouch, plus a Retro Mario shirt, a desktop calendar, and several different sets of posters.

The most impressive section of the Club Nintendo rewards page, however, is the robust list of games offered. For as little as 150 coins, Club Nintendo members can choose from a list of over 100 nostalgic classics and recent hits to add to their collection.

With so many games to choose from – and the Club Nintendo website finally starting to stabilize – we went through the list of available games to tell you our favorites. Check out the games we think are most worth your coins and begin scrounging through your Nintendo collection to find any unused Club Nintendo codes.

On the second page, we dig into some of the biggest, most classic games of all-time. – The Feed

EA Sports’ PGA Tour Isn’t Your Average Country Club

EA Sports' golf franchise skipped this year, and it's returning in the spring of 2015 now titled PGA Tour. These screens for the title show off both sides – its buttoned down, day-at-the-country-club side and its crazy fantasy golf side.

As the game's name indicates, the title is still affiliated with the real-world of golf, complete with a career, real courses, etc., but it's also adding fantasy courses. PGA Tour is being powered by DICE's Frostbite 3 engine, and accordingly, has a course where a battleship from Battlefield crash lands while you're playing.

Not just for looks, this event changes how you approach the course. "One of my favorite things about the game is discovering new shortcuts and alternate routes to the hole on fantasy courses," says Brent Nielsen, the game's executive producer. "Players are encouraged to wander off the beaten path and find new roads to success. Now that the entire course is open at all times you are as free to be as creative and imaginative as you want in your pursuit of a low score."

Another benefit of the engine is that EA says that a round of golf will not require loading between holes.

PGA Tour comes out next spring for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. For more, check out its debut trailer, as well as the screens in the gallery below.
