I’m not really sure ...Read More »

The final day of the EarthBound Bash was a few days ago, and so much happened that I barely remember it all. If I forget anything here, let me know in the comments! Some of the stuff that happened on the last day included: Trash burgers!

A fan named Hunter sent this my way recently: A fellow EB fan I know from college made this video showcasing the Earthbound guardians in animated 3D. It’s a bit rough in some areas, but I think the interpretations are spot-on. (Note: if typos make you upset, maybe don’t watch this ) Wow, that’s actually really cool! I’ve often wondered what a modern EarthBound remake, if...Read More »
Last week or so I posted about French EarthBound fans banding together to get a big French video game site to cover the MOTHER series.

Rather than try to summarize it myself, it’s probably just easier to paste it here to keep the full details intact: Hi! I’m Iwant, the guy who once mailed you about samp...Read More »
