Over on the EarthBound Reddit, TJourney noticed that this educational (and/or religious?) video series called “Active Learning” features a sudden, short bit of music from EarthBound: Man, this video is so cheesy. I thought it was from the late 80s at first, what with those sweaters and all, but the EarthBound music definitely places it in the mid-90s. I guess maybe lame educational vi...Read More »
A while back I posted about a podcast titled, “Gentlemen Discussing Mother 3“. It was well-received, so I thought I’d mention that two more parts have been released!

So if you have trouble getting them to play, try a different b...Read More »

A reader named Pete sent this in a while back: Hey Mato hows it going? There’s this criminally underrated VGM guitarist on youtube named Swiggles1987, and he’s a huge Mother fan, so he decided to make an album of Earthbound songs redone in a really cool jazz/blues style. The first two songs that he released are really good. I say it’s worth a look and maybe you could spread the w...Read More »
It’s that time again! Lots of mini-updates! Check ‘em out! Memories of Deleted Saves Luke Records says: Hello, I just read your anti-piracy Earthbound article and had flashbacks.
