With the hanafuda cards gone I ordered the shoelace set because I secretly wanted them after a coworker showed up with SMB socks from the Nintendo World Store. They are standard length and should fit nicely on any shoe with even holes. I laced the yellow set on my Doc Martins because they originally came with yellow laces( (they are burgundy red). They look great, I can post pics if anyone wants. The laces have a very smooth and silky feel. I'll talk about them more when it comes time to wash them.
For my Platinum Prize I decided to go with Metroid II because I wasx very disappointed with everything else available and I have great memories of MII because I played it when came out and I even own a Game Boy and a Metroid II cart. I used to blow batteries on just listening to the music alone. It took me two years to beat and I can't even really get into how I played it without ever owning Metroid on the NES and basically having no experience with the series at all. I love it.
I was disappointed with the Gold Nunchuck in that well, I have a bunch of them already- white, not gold ones, but what's the difference really? Yes I have the Gold Wii Remote, but I've long beaten Skyward Sword and the novelty has worn off. They should have released this much sooner and I felt it was too late to grab my interest.
I also spontaneously downloaded New Super Mario Bros 2 and scored 100 coins.
