Tips for Buying EarthBound

September 20th, 2009 | Weekly Round-Up

Very busy this Sunday afternoon, so I’m gonna make this a quicker roundup than usual.

Some cool and interesting stuff happened this week, so let’s take a look at it:

EarthBound News

Cool Auctions & Merchandise

Here are a couple things that showed up on eBay this week that are worth checking out. You can also see all the EarthBound and MOTHER stuff currently on eBay here. And if you’re into RSS feeds, check out this one, it will keep you somewhat up-to-date with EarthBound merch as it shows up on eBay.

Official MOTHER 1+2 keychains

And here’s some cool stuff on Yahoo! Auctions Japan:

And stuff on Amazon:

  • This week EarthBound is $80 on Amazon. It’s kind of neat to see the lowest price fluctuate, it’s almost like a mini stock market. Alas, there are no strategy guides for sale this week 🙁

Community News

I’m a potato so I can’t possibly 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

  • This week Itoi talked more about Beatles stuff and said that he might want to do some Beatles-related content on his site at some point. He even asked for suggestions from his readers.
  • He also talked about how he’s witnessed electronics and appliances evolve, but there’s one thing he’s been looking forward to: the day that home appliances won’t need power cords anymore.


Well, that’s all for this week. What next week hold is anyone’s guess. Now I must return to my home planet.

I’m with Itoi on the plug thing. My video game setup is probably a fire code violation at this point.

I’m looking forward to this day as well.

Oh, and no batteries, please.

At Moonside:
Can’t agree any more.
I have a Sega Game Gear, that thing needs 6 batteries to work and tears through all of them in less than an hour.
