Longtime fans of Starmen.Net and/or EarthBound Central probably recall the name Stephen Georg/xfis – he’s the guy behind so many amazing EarthBound projects over the years.

The thing about Loids Are Not Christmas was that Stephen hadn’t r...Read More »

A number of prototype EarthBound Zero cartridges have been floating around for years (details here) but recently the authenticity of some of them has come into question. So Sith, Stevesesy, and others have been doing some detective work over the past few months. I’m still not caught up with all the details about this, but most recently they got in contact with Andrew DeRouin, the owner of th...Read More »

 

April 23rd, 2014 | EarthBound, Interviews, Itoi, MOTHER 1 | 15 Comments

Shigesato Itoi’s company’s biggest success is its planners, and one of the many features these planners have is a daily-or-so quote, usually from an interview or something. Anyway, the other day featured a quote from Itoi talking about MOTHER games! Mother’s protagonist is just an average kid, so fleshing out his enemies and the opposition was important in making him a great her...Read More »

A reader named Arthur sent an e-mail a little while back: Chrontendo is a video series of one guy playing all of the games for the NES/Famicom in order of their release. He is on Episode 47 which features Mother 1. He goes into more detail for this game than the average game. The Mother footage starts at 30:45 And here’s the actual video: I always thought this Chrontendo thing was a reall...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 »

Andrew / Q has recently created a bunch of hacks for EarthBound Zero that update the game in several ways: Demiforce hack – The patch will turn an clean copy of the Earth Bound prototype ROM into the most recent Demiforce version (Demiforce v1.01 Hack-2). This adds the word “Zero” to the title screen, fixes a few spelling/grammar mistakes, and, if my memory is correct, it’s a...Read More »
