Tips for Buying EarthBound

March 14th, 2009 | Weekly Round-Up

Another week down. They just fly by now.

This week was a strange one, there were a lot of video updates. I don’t want to become too dependent on videos, but the ones this week were all pretty cool and varied enough that it was okay. Videos are cool and all, but I also want to start showcasing other things more often, like especially cool fan art and music and other stuff. That plus all the game-related info will make this place really good. At least that’s my hope 😛

Anyway, let’s see what happened this week!

Site News

EarthBound News

Cool Auctions & Merchandise

A whole bunch of cool EarthBound-related stuff showed up on eBay this week. It’s been a real active week for some reason. Here are a few of the things that caught my eye. You can also always check the latest listings in one easy spot here if you’re looking for deals on something!

Here’s some cool stuff from Yahoo! Auctions Japan:

And some stuff I recently dug up on Amazon.com:


Community News

I’m not super-powered enough to keep up with every single thing that happens in the EarthBound community, so if you’ve done something cool or if you know of something cool that belongs here, let me know!

What’s Up With Itoi

I suck and haven’t really paid too much attention this week. I would skim his site every night but I was too busy/lazy to jot down any notes. I must rectify this. There was nothing EarthBound-related at least.

Upcoming Stuff

My visions of the future are blurry. I think we might see some more EarthBound restauranty stuff, possibly another M2EB update, and we’ll start looking at some hacks for EarthBound. Plus all the usual stuff.

End

Not much to say, very very busy weekend so I’ll keep it short. It’s cool seeing EB Central grow like this, I wasn’t sure if it’d get off the ground or not. I’m only one guy though, so if you have any news or suggestions of cool stuff that might be worth an update, let me know so we can keep the updates flowing 😀

What’s with that listing for the EB guide showing an LttP guide? Also, yeesh, what a price.

Mato said on Mar. 15, 2009

Yeah, I dunno what was up with that. It was funny so I posted it.

For like 2 months there was a Mother 2 cart on eBay but the picture was of Street Fighter 2 instead. I couldn’t tell which game they were actually selling. I guess power seller-type people make those mistakes often.

nekoaitsu said on Mar. 15, 2009

Thanks for providing all of the info, auction links, etc. I will use some of them someday, I am sure.

So just out of curiosity, Mato, do you own any Mother merchandise besides EB and the Mother 3 LE? And do you have the box and such for EB?

Poe said on Mar. 15, 2009

nekonaitsu – Check the Fantography section of Starmen.Net. Mato’s MOTHER merch collection is in the M’s.

Poe said on Mar. 15, 2009

I mean the T’s. I keep forgetting he goes by Tomato over there. D:

Mato said on Mar. 15, 2009

My merch collection isn’t that big. So far I think the most impressive collection I’ve seen is here.

If I were super rich I’d get more merchandise, but most of the stuff I have I got just because I’ve been involved with this stuff for so long 😛

Hi could you maybe start a section on the Rule 34 segment of the MOTHER series’s fan community? There’s a lot of very well-drawn pornography that’d certainly draw more hits, metaphorically and literally.

Excellent. Believe it or not, I was just wondering to myself last night how long it would be before people started asking for porn. And now I know!

And knowing is half the battle.

solidpit said on Mar. 15, 2009

I’m just going to go out on a limb here and guess that Mato will say no to your suggestion SweetJoel.

While we’re on the subject, be sure to turn safe search on before searching for Mother sprites. Or anything with the word “Mother” in it.

There are few no results pertaining to the series, let me assure you.

Darien said on Mar. 15, 2009

There’s a reason I always search for “Earthbound” if I want pictures. It limits the results, sure, but it introduces less… noise. 😉

gBev said on Mar. 15, 2009

All this news for a 14-year-old game is both weird and awesome.

But all those starmen.net forum links make me sad D:
