Tips for Buying EarthBound

November 8th, 2009 | Weekly Round-Up

My busy-ness has been escalating lately, so I’ve been skipping the weekly roundups lately. I think they may turn into something more like “occasional roundsup”. I’m also gonna change them up a little bit, they’ll be more about stuff that happens off-site. I’m still tinkering with the format, so don’t mind the dust!

Community News

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!

Cool Auctions & Merchandise

A lot of stuff’s showed up the past few weeks that I’ve slacked off. The sidebar updates throughout the day with the newest auctions of the day, so if you like keeping tabs on the latest EarthBound swag, keep your eyes peeled there. I also sometimes post good deals on the site’s Twitter account, for example a few days ago an EarthBound Player’s Guide was only $32.

Anyway, here’s some cool stuff fans and collectors might want to check out. You can also see all the EarthBound / MOTHER stuff on eBay all gathered in one handy place here!

A lot of neat-looking fan-made shirts also showed up recently, you can see them at the bottom of the page here.

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

And stuff on Amazon:

What’s Up With Itoi

  • A few weeks ago Itoi flew over to Italy to oversee some stuff and see how some of his upcoming merchandise is made I think. He didn’t really get to see the country, he was mostly either in his hotel room or at the factory. He liked it a lot though and he learned a lot he said.
  • He also mentioned that this year he’s watched so much baseball that he’s not willing to tell anyone how much time he’s spent on it. He says that he’s going to do all kinds of stuff with his newfound extra time like walk the dog more/for longer periods of time and stuff. I guess the baseball season is over there or something now.

Final Thought

What’s wrong with this picture?

I still say we should send Itoi a Wii with Beatles rock band

What isn’t wrong with that picture?

Xi said on Nov. 8, 2009

So what is “Penguinism” about anyway?

H.S said on Nov. 8, 2009

There’s an extra tree in the picture, directly below Ness.

Komaru said on Nov. 8, 2009

Also, Itoi’s Birthday is coming up on the 10th, right?

Seifer said on Nov. 8, 2009

Hey Tomato, do you know what Itoi’s favorite baseball team is by any chance?

Gummidge said on Nov. 8, 2009

@ the Twoson picture

Out of the three trees at the bottom, only the two on the right are actually in the game πŸ˜›

COOKIE NOW

Gummidge said on Nov. 8, 2009

Oh wait, ninja’d. Bollocks. I was proud of meself an’ all.

rawpower7 said on Nov. 8, 2009

Baseball is over in the US too. Yanks won.

Darien said on Nov. 8, 2009

I can sympathise with Itoi; I watched a pretty intense amount of baseball this year, too. Now that the season’s over, I intend to do lots of stuff with my extra time, too, like… complain about baseball season being so far away. πŸ˜‰

Trevizo said on Nov. 8, 2009

The Picture has three tree’s. nenenenenenenenenenenenenenenenene…… yup that’s pretty much it… the fan fiction thing was perverted i stopped after the first paragraph.

Gabriel Rodriguez said on Nov. 8, 2009

I figured the two dots next to the word Twoson was what was wrong with that picture, but everyone else seems to say it’s tree south of Ness.

Mato said on Nov. 8, 2009

There’s more than just the tree πŸ˜›

Magicsgame said on Nov. 8, 2009

Haha, I just read Deathbound.

Might want to put a warning by that, since it’s more extreme than the content on this site.

Ice Sage said on Nov. 8, 2009

There’s an extra line of text on the sign (the top line). And the extra tree, but everyone’s said that already.

You’re tricky, Mato. πŸ˜›

Mato said on Nov. 8, 2009

Yep, you got it, the extra tree and the extra line of text. My idea was that if people spotted the tree thing they’d stop looking for other stuff πŸ˜›

PK Mt. Fuji said on Nov. 9, 2009

Y’know what I think is wrong; the fact that Twoson called itself “#2”.

Chrissii said on Nov. 9, 2009

I… really think that fanfiction link needs an NSFW tag… or a not-safe-for-any-sane-person one. I’m no prude or anything, but I actually gagged a little partway through and had to stop reading. And I’ve read some messed up stuff on the internet before. <_< Haha.

pidgezero_one said on Nov. 9, 2009

I had no idea what the mini-towel was but I bought one anyway last week. Awesome!

The Great Morgil said on Nov. 9, 2009

@ the Fanfic:

Am i the only one who nearly pee’ed himself laughing at it? πŸ˜€

TheLiberator said on Nov. 9, 2009

Oh god, why did you have to post that fanfic? Why did I read that all the way through? Oh god, why can’t I get the images out of my head?!

fael said on Nov. 10, 2009

i’m surprised nobody commented about the Mother 4 fan game. it’s pretty much just concept, but it looks really neat!

Gummidge said on Nov. 26, 2009

Mato, please do more of these spot what’s wrong thingies for the weekly round-up, they’re actually quite fun πŸ˜›
