The Completionist: EarthBound
I have a SERIOUS backlog of submission e-mails, going back all the way to 2009. I constantly feel bad for not posting everything, so I’m going to attempt to go through the backlog over time by doing more of these mini-update updates.
Now let us journey back to the year 2009 – the year I started EarthBound Central!
Perverted Video Game Moments
somebody did list of sexual and perverted moments in gaming history list and mother 3:s oxygen machine was in it 😀

Patient Dad & Non-Existent Phones
While I was tinkering around with some unknowns in the ROM, I found out that if you wait around long enough, Ness’ dad will call you before you even leave your room.
Try it. Just wait around in Ness’ room right after starting a new game, and sure enough, he’ll call.
If you don’t feel like waiting, I made a patch to cut Ness’ dad’s timer down to about 15-20 seconds between each call. He’ll call immediately as you wake up, though. I’m sending the patch attached through this blog submission form, so if it doesn’t get through alright, let me know and I’ll just upload it somewhere.
I suppose this is more of an oversight of the testers than a glitch, but it’s something to put up on this blog of yours if you want.
I can’t blame the testers though. Who would’ve thought Ness’ dad would call you before your adventure even starts? =/
PS: I have no idea what filetypes are allowed so I’m renaming the .ips to a .txt
PPS: blarg, okay, that didn’t work. Just pop open a hex editor on the ROM, seek to 0x786D, overwrite ’97 06′ bytes with ’05 00′, seek to 0xB8C3, same thing.
As you know, MOTHER3 used a lot of references to little-known classical music pieces. The song, “Leder’s Gymnopédies” is taken from Erik Satie’s Gymnopédie No. 1.
However, there are three Gymnopédies in all, and the fandom has only heard one. You should spend a post talking about them.
Don’t worry about copyright issues for this music. Erik Satie’s collection should be well into public domain by now.
Just thought this might be worth a link on your music subsection.
Videos about EarthBound’s suckage
I do not hate EarthBound, I even have a huge EB collection in my room, but I decided to go to youtube and search “EarthBound sucks” just to see how many idiots there are, sadly there was an enourmous amount of results, I think this would make a decent post because it just goes to show that a ton of people can’t appreciate good games anymore.
Lucas in Scribblenauts (not really)
You may or may not have seen this yet.
Just something for a slow day. It’s a collage of famous game characters with the Scribblenauts design, and Lucas happens to be in there. Found the image on Kotaku.
Mother 3 Love Theme in Mario Paint

That’s all for now! I’m still only up to July of 2009, this backlog is gonna take a long time 😯
