Sure, it took 12 months or so from when they first started sticking little "Club Nintendo" cards in their games down here, but the rewards program for Nintendo fanboys has finally launched in Australia. And the prizes are... well... interesting.There are five rewards on offer, including Mario face towels (wtf?!) a Wiimote stand (that doesn't look like it charges), a game and stylus case, a game wallet and the "Game and Watch" game for the DS. If you're a little underwhelmed at the selection, you're not alone - here's hoping the selection grows, so we can get some of those awesome classic controllers or something, you know, worthwhile.
