Tips for Buying EarthBound

August 25th, 2012 | EarthBound, Uncommon Knowledge, Videos

This is probably old news to many fans, but there’s a well-known glitch that happens if you’re diamondized in EarthBound and the photo guy takes your picture:

Basically, for a split second you cease to be diamondized but then go back to it immediately afterward. It’s just a neat thing to do sometimes if you’ve played the game a million times before 😛

I wouldn’t call this a glitch so much as an oversight really. Still, it is neat and humorous :3

I like to think it’s not a bug, it’s a joke about how being told to smile for the camera is SO compelling that it’ll even soften diamonds for a split second.

That’s pretty cool. Does it work like in MOTHER 3 and you return with 1 HP so you can do the animation if you died? Because you don’t get cured of diamondization.

So, uh, where’s the camera sound effect? 😉

Same thing is true for if your a ghost, I guess they didn’t make a sprite of him making the peace sign as a spirit.

*if you’re a ghost

I guess the problem here is that the game loads Ness’s peace sign sprite, and then goes back to the diamondized sprite.

In other words…the devs forgot to make a diamondized version of the former sprite.

Forget the “I guess” part. I watched the video after typing in the comment but before submitting it. :-/

Re: DJMankiewicz
It would be cool if the cameraman could make Ness back to normal because of that anecdote.

How did Ness and party get to summers if Ness couldn’t use teleportation? There’s no enemies that can diamondize you in Summers.

Does it only work on ness, because he has a different sprite when the cameraman shows up? or would it happen with anyone?
