Tips for Buying EarthBound

March 1st, 2014 | EarthBound, Itoi, MOTHER 1, Uncommon Knowledge, Videos

A new Did You Know Gaming video was just released, and this episode is about EarthBound! This episode also features chuggaaconroy, who has helped introduce so many people to the MOTHER/EarthBound games that it still boggles my mind :P

There’s a part 2 to this video too! See it here!

So much of the info here is scattered across my hundreds (thousands?) of EarthBound Central posts, so I’m glad that a bunch of it has been condensed into a nice and simple video format. I actually haven’t watched Part 2 yet, so I better do that now!

Finally they did one for the mother series. It was about time after 6 or 7 mario, pokemon, and zeldas.

Awesome I was wondering if they were doing this

Actually, you forgot to mention that The Completionest has also done a review on Earthbound and there both on the same site and came out around a couple of days apart so…. that’s a thing…

It’s a good thing that they left out the fetus theory for this episode.

Who..or what..is a chuggaconroy?

Honestly said on Mar. 2, 2014

Poochy, he is an extremely popular Let’s Player on youtube. As soon as he played Earthbound, thousands of his fans then decided they also wanted to.

Despite the fact that I already knew most of the stuff in those videos (mostly thanks to various posts here, as you said) I still enjoy watching DYKG all the time. : )

I feel like there could easily be parts 3-6 just about mother 3 stuff. Please?

I still remember when I first saw chuggaaconroy’s LP of Mother 3… From that day onward I have been a Mother fan and have been watching his videos depending on the game :-P Thanks Chugga!

One day EarthBound will make it’s rise to fame as one of the greatest game series’ of all time. That will be a day where it will get more than a paragraph’s mention in “The Guiness World Records: Gaming” (we just had the book fair at my school). And mentions on large-scale websites like this are how that will be acheived.

EarthBound was plenty popular before Chuggachoochoo or whatever his weird name is made an obnoxious video of himself playing it.

Still wish that someone from Starmen.net narrated/voice the video instead of Chuggaconroy…

Coreyback said on Mar. 3, 2014

Chuggaaconroy was an active sm.net member for several years. Just not lately.

I love these videos. Even for the games I’ve never played!

Tbh Chuggaaconroy’s Mother 3 LP was mediocre, to the point where I stopped watching it about 3/4 of the way in. Too many dumb YTP references, meme imitations, halfhearted jokes, and poor attempts at trying to follow the game will do that for you.

IMO NintendoCapriSun does a far better LP and even then he does his trademark signature crap from time to time.

game4brains said on Mar. 7, 2014

I internally fangasmed when I first heard about this. I saw all three MOTHER LPs by Chugga, and I consider his Mother 3 LP to be his best, since he actually took the game seriously, unlike other LP-ers, while still retaining his (at the time) trademark Chugga-ness (as in the essence of Chuggaaconroy, not a Chuggaaconroy-Ness chimera).
