If you register on the UK Nintendo Club, then I think you would have to change your console's location to Europe in the settings menu. You should be able to get some of the digital prizes by doing this, but you won't be able to get your hands on any physical goodies since they don't ship to Greece. ):

    I don't think they can. I have a friend who lives in a country that doesn't have access to Club Nintendo, and he's done the same thing with his DSi. Nothing seemed to have happened to him. If they wanted to ban his account (or his console), then they would've done it a long time ago.

    I don't think I've ever gotten the emblem for completing the retro gaming challenge or whatever it was called (I can't see the event topic anymore). I think I came in second place twice, too. Is it a mistake or for something entirely different?

    Mmm, well... you're talking about the Arcade Week, right? Arcade Week seems to have four separate emblems. One for participation, one for first place winners, one for people who rank second place, and the last one is for those who place third. If you've gotten one of these emblems already, then unfortunately, I don't think you'll be eligible to get the same emblem again. D: If you've never even received any of these emblems, then I think the host must've forgotten to give it to you. The best thing for you to do would be to PM the host and tell them about it.

    I got the second place one now, but not the one for participation it seems. I'll PM LGDarm about this. (That is, if I don't forget about this later today)

    I know I can only get the same emblem once, but I've never gotten the emblems before for participating. I hope I'm not coming across as a beggar or something.

    You should really VM me if you're missing any emblems instead of posting here~ Just so that your problem will get resolved faster.

    Anywho, Sorry about the trouble, I'll give your emblems as soon as I can.

    I just didn't see this as much of an urgent enough issue to VM, though I'll do that next time if I have some similar issue.

    And thank you, that was quick!

      Hey there. Recently I've developed an obsession to the iOS game backstab. For those who haven't heard of it, https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.gameloft.android.ANMP.GloftSDHM&hl=from have a look. I've been wondering if there are any pc games similar to this sort of thing? Thanks!

      If you haven't already, then you should definitely give Assassin's Creed a try. It's an action-adventure game that allows you to freely roam in an open world and jump around from one object to another, just like BackStab. There's a lot of game in this series, and my personal favorites are Assassin's Creed II and Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood. The newer AC games (Assassin's Creed III, for example) games cost around fifty dollars, but the old ones are a lot less expensive.

        Question 1: What Skylanders should I pick up for each element? I recently picked up Skylanders Giants for the 3DS and got Tree Rex, Cynder and Pop Fizz with it. Yesterday I found Sonic Boom for €4 so I thought I'll get it, it won't break the bank. What others should I pick up? I mostly want a Fire, Water, Mech and Earth(?) type, but am open to others from the other elements...


        Question 2: Should I update my 3DS via System Update? One is running 6.1.0 -12E and the other is 6.2.0-12E. I've been saying no to the prompts constantly but I don't know if I should just bite the proverbial bullet...

        Thanks in advance!

          I can't help with question one, but for question two, I don't see why not unless you are using some sort of flashcart.. Anything you are worried about specifically?

            I have an R4i 3DS, but I tend to use it on my DS lite anyway.

            Nothing I'm really worried about but from experience with phone apps they tend to be buggy after updates - this won't happen with the 3DS will it?

            Nintendo's going to push the update on you one way or the other, so unless it's absolutely going to break your flashcart and you have no other way to play it (which you do, your Lite), then I'd go ahead and let it update. Usually when gaming systems have updates there are few to no issues, especially minor ones.

            If you play your games online, then you may be required to update your system at some point in the future. I was about to play Mario Kart 7 on multiplayer once, and if I remember correctly, I wasn't able to because my 3DS firmware was out-of-date. If you only play single-player though, then you probably wouldn't have to worry about a thing. As for Skylanders, I suggest you should get Bouncer, Hot Head, Thumpback, and Crusher. I have them all (well, a couple of these are my sister's, but she still likes to share them with me), and they're great!

              Thanks! I decided after the advice to just Update them, I think the DS did it itself at some point cause I could've sworn ages ago it was on 5.2 or something. Oh well It's done now!

              Again, Thanks! Yesterday I picked up Zap, Flashwing and Flameslinger, though I'll prolly pick Bouncer and hot head up at some stage. I've gone on a spending spree recently and have bought a ridiculous amount in a short span of time. I've been lucky too: While in Gamestop the other day picking up an Ignitor model I saw an earth elemental (which later turned out to be Dinorang) and the guy was too lazy to look them up so he gave them both to me for €4 And yesterday the same thing happened with Flameslinger on another Gamestop's computer, he wasn't on file so I got it as a buy one, get one free thing :D Yay lazy employees

                I don't think GameStop sells anything PS2 or anything before that. (GC, GBA, XBOX etc.)

                My advice to you, chum would be to hit eBay up or Amazon, both are incredibly useful in finding things that stores don't sell anymore.

                  If their are any gamexchanges near you, could give them a try. My local one had a few sections dedicated to older console games, and a table for old hand-held games.

                  Also, yard sales.

                  GameStop may no longer sell GameCube games in-stores, but they still sell them in their online shop. (: Just visit their website, hit the "more" button on the navigation bar, and select the "GameCube" option from the drop-down menu. When you're done, you should be taken to the GameCube games and accessories page immediately. d: GameFly sell GC games, too, I think. If you have an account there, then why not try ordering a few of your favorite games from them?

                  You may also try eBay or Amazon if you wish, just like Trainer Timothy suggested. Be very careful when you make purchases from these sites though, because there's always a chance that the seller might be sending out fake copy of these games to you, and not the original ones.

                    I have a question, does Second Life or other PC games count as video games in this board? Just a question that I thought-up. And also, while it's not necessarily a game based question, but the profile pic and avatar pic I'm using okay to use in this forum? Because I'm kinda worried I made a mistake, but I have a lack of good Pokemon pictures to use, as said in my sig below. Nothing 18+ is showing, right?

                    If the orange charger light of the 3DS lights up on its own and the 3DS isn't plugged to a charger, what does that mean?

                    Edit: screencap. Take note that it's not plugged into anything.

                    I.. don't think it means anything too serious - it can still charge, right?

                    I charged it overnight, and it still works. Must be a glitch, right?
