Tips for Buying EarthBound

January 22nd, 2010 | Audio Stuff, EarthBound

In the past I posted about a cool project to tell EarthBound’s story in rap form:

Apparently, Duane and brand0, the guys behind it and a lot of similar music for other games, have split ways, and the EarthBound stuff looks like it’s probably going to remain unfinished. But don’t fret, because what WAS finished is being made available.

You can find the full album (everything non-EarthBound + everything EarthBound) here. It’s all very cool-sounding stuff, so if you like old games, you’ll probably like most of their stuff 😀

I like them, but it irks me how their song titles are in ALL CAPITAL LETTERS. I don’t need that.

Tis’ very depressing, those guys made an awesome rap of EarthBound, but time for the good news: Today is EarthBound Central’s 2nd Anniversary 😀 Here’s to 2 years of epicness!

EB Central has only been around for one year, Ninji. The archives from 2008 were transferred over from Mato’s old blog.

Oh man, I loved the end’s “SPANKETY SPANKETY!” It really is too bad it won’t be finished… it seems like these things always happens to the EarthBound fandom, doesn’t it?

Yeah, it’s a shame. I picked up the LP a few weeks ago, and everything on it is great. But the EarthBound section was the true highlight. Great production, clever lyrics… Anyway, I urge you to buy it if you like classic games and their music. And hell, maybe BrandO would do a Mother 3 rap if there was enough interest. We can always ask at their forums.

Frank said on Jan. 23, 2010

Thats good idea O_O We should ask him make M3 rap, it would be awesome

yahooeny said on Jan. 23, 2010

just a clarification, the
earthbound rap opera was
finished, segments produced after the disbandment of dwane and brand0 had guest artists record dwane’s lines

“Check me out, look at me go…
ZooM! BOinG! DinG!

Okay, let’s go!”

I love that, for some reason. I’ll have to get this at some point.

So on the page you linked to Mato, I don’t see EarthBound listed on the top graphic at all (The one that lists the games). Are we sure their EB stuff is in that pack? I don’t want to pay $10 bucks for it and not even get the main reason that I want it. :/ Has anyone bought it who can confirm if it’s in there or not?

Mato said on Jan. 23, 2010

The FAQ page says the EarthBound stuff is on there: http://www.the-adventures-of.com/2009/12/faq.html

Starman 99 said on Jan. 23, 2010

It is in there, trust me.

Chrissii said on Jan. 23, 2010

@Mato, Starman99 Thanks a bunch 🙂 Def purchasing it later tonight then, woo!

Javi said on Jan. 23, 2010

Love their version of Pokey Means Business. Wheeee.

Welcome to saturn valley zoom boing ding!

As a member of BrandO’s forums, I have great news. He’s redoing this with some other guys.

We should bribe Mato to do a guest appearance on it.
