EARTHBOUND (Super Nintendo Entertainment System, 1995) GOOD SHAPE & TESTED

Tips for Buying EarthBound

November 14th, 2011 | Itoi, Videos

Here’s Shigesato Itoi playing ping pong with Hiroshi Ishii, an MIT computer scientist.

What’s neat about Itoi’s job and his company is that he meets so many types of people and get to experience so many types of things. In fact, making games was just another little diversion for him, which seems to surprise a lot of Western gamers.

I don’t think I’d be very good at playing that, because I’d want to look at the table the entire time and not the ball whizzing toward my face.

I know what _I_ want for Christmas!

That is so neat! Ofcourse when I play I would be more occupied looking at the board rather than the ball! XD

It dosent surprise me that MOTHER was a side project. You got to know idol before you idol him πŸ˜€

I like Itoi’s vast array of interests.

But he clearly is a MASTER game-maker and I wish we had more than 3 games from this genius.

Oh, but we DO have more than 3 games from him! Google “Shigesato Itoi Bass Fishing”.

LOL! Not quite what I expected. πŸ™‚

This does, however, demand a re-phrase. “…I wish we had more than 3 RPG’s from this genius.” πŸ™‚

I enjoy how he just smacks the ball so hard when playing..

Itoi like a boss!
