For some reason, dying in EarthBound is sometimes glitchy, as we’ve seen in past posts. Here’s another glitch that can apparently happen somehow:

Seems like a cartridge glitch. The guy died, got a bit upset, jerked his controller a bit, which made the cord move the console a bit, causing the game to freeze and do that. Happens all the time with cartridge-based consoles. One tiny bump, and bam, scary music.

Heh, this reminds me of when I was playing last week around my birthday (a tradition of mine), and I had a Smiling Sphere explode in my face, after Paula and Jeff already kicked the bucket. Ness got owned, but the game figured I had won because the enemy died before me. But I died, so I won! But I lost…

Ness gained *Glitch* *Frozen w/ winning song*

I’ve heard of this happening in emulators where you can get 4 trillion exp from it. Very odd!

Whoa, this is exactly what happens when you forget to turn off the Pitch Bend effect in EBMusEd!
