Tips for Buying EarthBound

Boo! It’s me, Talking Rock! Alright, here’s my question. Why were people kidnapped, taken to the Stonehenge base, and stuffed inside tubes? What was going to happen to them?

Uh, same thing as they were in Mother 1, Giygas was going to do alien stuff to them! OOOOOOOOOOOHHOOHOO! The pigmasks put people in tubes too! Oh my God, parallels!

Horrible, horrible experimentation.

Maybe they’re being brainwashed, like in Mother 3?
Perhaps that’s what the Starmen are.
Brainwashed humans kidnapped by Giygas!

It’s like catching fireflies and collecting them in empty bottles. You just do it.

Hey, wait a second.

Rocks can’t talk.

Actually, they were just testing the Prototype Hot Spring-in-a-Tube that they used in New Pork City.

I agree, why is this rock talking? WHERE DID YOU COME FROM???

I would say rather than testing out the “hot springs” seen in mother 3, they were the original brain-washing tubes that were geared to make people adore Giygas, but when Giygas was defeated Pokey stole the technology for himself and employed it in Mother 3, maybe?

They were bored

Seeing that most of the victims were friends of Ness & Co. Maybe the Starmen wanted to hold them hostage for later but Apple Kid ruined their plans by screaming in Ness’ ear through the receiver phone.(What would happen if they waited till Apple Kid hung up the phone first before they attacked him?)
