What Happened to EarthBound
Today’s batch of mini-updates comes not from 2009, but from the other end of the backlog – these are the most recent submissions! Ness Minecraft Skin CaliforniaRollz sent: Hey mato! I was able to make a Ness skin for Minecraft since I couldn’t find many on the net (One’s I found didn’t seem very appealing…). I thought you might like it! Peace! EarthBound Remix...Read More »
So last night I was chatting with someone and the question was brought up – you know how members of different fandoms have a name they go by? Like Star Trek fans have “Trekkies” and “Trekkers” (woe unto all who use the wrong one though…) and Doctor Who fans seem to go by “Whovians” and stuff like that? Well, what should EarthBound/MOTHER fans be cal...Read More »
I’ve been thinking of making a Facebook page for EarthBound Central for a while. I don’t really have any serious plans for it, but maybe I’ll come up with something. At the very least it’s another outlet for readers to interact and for fans to share stuff. Check it out here! Also, while I’m pimping that out, here’s a bunch of other stuff if you’re interest...Read More »
Travis sent this to me the other day, check it out: Through travel, birthdays, dating, engagement, marriage and now the expectation of a child- Earthbound keeps being brought to the surface in my life. In fact almost every month of 2011 I received some sort of Earthbound reminder. People who didn’t previously know about the Mother series are now aware of it because they know that I like it. ...Read More »
Rich sent me an e-mail the other day with this link: EarthBound Central in 2001 I never knew earthboundcentral.com had ever been taken before, I’m glad it was available when I chose it back in 2008! As I recall, EarthBound Central wasn’t even the original name I was going to go with, I just wound up choosing it sort of at the last minute. I wish I could find the list with all my old ...Read More »
A little while ago Adam sent this in: Ashly Davis, of “Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin’?” fame, has a new site called “How Video Games Saved My Life” where people can submit their stories on how video games have helped them. I thought this was a fantastic idea, since all too often we see video games demonized in the media…it’s nice to finally hear about all the g...Read More »
It’s no secret that I’ve horribly, horribly neglected the MOTHER 3 translation notes that I had been planning to do after the patch’s release. The truth is, I haven’t really played the game since then, I guess I realized I had overdosed on the game once it was all over Anyway, I feel bad for not doing better with the notes, so what I’d like to do as a temporary fix i...Read More »
Last year there were a bunch of games announced that looked like EarthBound and MOTHER 3 in various ways. It was easy to mix up which was which, so I thought I’d make things a little more clear here. I’ve also provided a few new screenshots whenever possible. Obviously, these games aren’t related to EarthBound or the MOTHER games except for the artwork. But since people send news...Read More »
I recently added a basic forum to the site, you can visit it here. It isn’t meant to be a humongo forum, it’s more like a small place for visitors to talk and a place for mini-projects, mini-updates, and stuff like that that I don’t want to clog the blog front page with. The manga translation project I mentioned in the last update would best be organized on a forum, for example. ...Read More »
Andy sent this in not too long ago: Hey there! Now, I’m not sure if this is anything really all that earth-shattering, but I am a casual blogger under the tumblr site: http://passthemilk.tumblr.com/ For the next week or so, I’ll be creating a new post or two everyday chronicling my creating of an Earthbound Zero Pippi rug for my brother and sister-in-law’s new baby. Thing is, the...Read More »
- breeman: AH why did I see this too late to get the Red Vinyl!? Pledged for the White Vinyl. I recently started collecting and listening to Vinyl...
- Thisislame: I love mother/earthbound and always will support their projects. This album is not supposed to be on vinyl. It’s gonna sound...
- J: I actually really liked this game. The look and style are very earthbound inspired, and there are a ton of references, but the game stands up...
- DarklingDragon: That’s pretty cool. I’d get one if I had a vinyl player.
- LucasTizma: I got the money and I got the desire. So why not?
