Shigesato Itoi, Giygas, and Boobies
After Nintendo announced earlier today that EarthBound will be released on the Wii U Virtual Console in North America and Europe, lots of fans started thanking Nintendo on the MOTHER 2 Miiverse. In case you don’t have a Wii U yet, here’s a look at the Miiverse posts: So much happiness and excitement! ...Read More »
So yesterday’s super-impromptu MOTHER 2 stream is over and we’ve finally finished the game, hurray! Here’s a quick summary of stuff that happened, or at least stuff that I can remember off the top of my head. If I’ve forgotten anything, let me know! (more…) ...Read More »
Itoi’s live MOTHER 2 stream was a few days ago, and I’ve been very slowly trying to go through the entire thing and list stuff of interest. Except it’s hard to find time, so I’ve been listening to it in the background while doing other stuff. Here’s what I’ve jotted down on my horribly-handwritten notes, but if I’ve forgotten anything, please let me know i...Read More »
When we held our American MOTHER 2 stream event the other day Chewy was in a city a few hours away, but she was like, “I AM GOING TO BE AT THIS EVENT” and then somehow arrived at my house via magic. Then we realized how cool it would be if Shigesato Itoi, who already knew the stream was going on, happened to see her taking part in it too, since they’ve met a few times and discuss...Read More »
So the official MOTHER 2 streaming event with Shigesato Itoi and other important people who worked on the game is now over. I only caught the last few minutes of it, but what I saw was pretty cool. I do sort of dread having to watch four or five hours of the video someday and try to get down all the details, though From what I’ve been hearing, one of the highlights was when they had the ac...Read More »
Tomorrow morning (or tomorrow night if you’re in Japan) Itoi and a fellow MOTHER 2 staff member with the nickname “BOSE” will be doing a live broadcast/playthrough of MOTHER 2. During it, they’ll be talking about all sorts of things about the development of the game, stuff they’ve never really revealed before, things like that. It’s supposed to last about 3 hou...Read More »
About five years ago, I helped organize the PK Siege Japan thing with the other Starmen.Net guys. I’ve already gone over details about it before, so I won’t rehash them here. But I was cleaning out old stuff from closets recently and stumbled upon this relic: This was the cost of shipping the entire gigantic PK Siege Japan package to Japan! The reason it cost so much was because our c...Read More »
Good ol’ xfis and Melcat are going to be playing through EarthBound this weekend for charity: On October 20th, 2012, I’ll be playing through Earthbound (SNES) live on Twitch.TV to raise money for my local Children’s Hospital. Mal will be joining me as well. We intend to start at noon that day and continue until we’ve completed the game. But we need your help! We’ve s...Read More »
Over on the Reddits a user by the name of aFriendlyAlien posted pics from his first Comic Con visit. He cosplayed as Ness and took awkward prom-style photos with other cosplayers there. Here’s a sample: You can check out all the other pics here and see the original Reddit post here! ...Read More »
About a year and a half ago, Shigesato Itoi acknowledged the overseas EarthBound/MOTHER fan community – if you’ve forgotten or haven’t seen it before, here’s the video: He mistakenly called us Starmen.Net people the “Starman Club”, and immediately after that we all clung to that term Recently, as we’ve seen in an earlier post, super-duper awesome transl...Read More »
