Beware of Super Smash Bros. secret character spoilers (update)

I remember some of voi got all upset when we (okay, me) posted pictures of the final evolution of the new Pokemon starters. The unlockable Smash Bros. characters are probably an even bigger "spoiler," then. So,...

There are some good Club Nintendo game rewards this month
by Jordan Devore

Now, when I say this is a decent month for Club Nintendo game offers, I'm asking you to focus on Kirby Super Star, Super Punch-Out!!, and Art Style: PiCTOBiTS. Two Super Nintendo classics and an awesome, underplayed puzzler. Go ahead and ignore the rest, if you would.

  • Mario Bros. (Wii U) - 200 Coins
  • Kirby Super Star ( Wii U) - 200 Coins
  • Super Punch-Out!! (Wii) - 250 Coins
  • NES Play Action Football (Wii) - 200 Coins
  • Super Mario Bros. (3DS) - 200 Coins
  • The Legend of Zelda (3DS) - 200 Coins
  • Touch Solitaire (3DS) - 150 Coins
  • Art Style: PiCTOBiTS (3DS) - 200 Coins

No, really. Start up your 3DS and get to downloading.

At long last, I'll be able to get a shiny Gengar photo
At long last, I'll be able to get a shiny Gengar
by Jordan Devore

Gengar only became my favorite Pokémon in the last few years, but now that it's my bestie, I don't see that ever changing. (Sorry, Feraligatr.) Matter of fact, I'd even be willing to step foot in a GameStop for a distribution event related to the ghostly Pokémon -- true love.

There are two events planned for Pokémon X/Y in the United States this year and both require leaving the house. The first one is for a shiny Gengar with its Gengarite Mega Stone, obtainable via a "special code card" at GameStop from October 13 - October 26.

The next event is for Diance -- claim yours from October 27 - November 16 at the game retailer. The Diancite Mega Stone isn't included here; you'll need to earn it in either Pokémon Omega Ruby or Alpha Sapphire once those titles launch on November 21.
