Welcome to Moonsider
Currently my main computer and 99% of all my possessions are now being moved across the country, which makes it a bit harder to do EB Central updates. So, for the next week or so I thought I might do some question and answer-type updates to tide us over for a while. Basically, if you have any questions about EarthBound, MOTHER 3, MOTHER 1, EB Central, or whatever else, let me know in the comments ...Read More »
I got a deluge of e-mails yesterday and today about a poll posted at VGTribune.com. Basically, it sounds like they intend to give their poll results to the people developing the next Smash Bros. game over in Japan. Anyway, some EarthBound/MOTHER characters are in the running, so if you’re interested, you can vote here. ...Read More »
The other day, Masahiro Sakurai, the director of previous Smash Bros. games and current director of a new Smash Bros. game, posted this on Twitter: (translated by me) A staff member drew this on a whiteboard. Man, they’re good! There’s a Mr. Saturn in this drawing, so a lot of people feel that EarthBound/MOTHER will continue to be well-represented. I figure it’s just a random s...Read More »
Juanito sent me a couple videos taken back in 2001. I had forgotten about these, they’re pretty cool. First, here’s the opening video being shown to the public for the first time. You can hear people getting especially excited about Ness: Next is this other video that has a drastically different version of Bein’ Friends during the Onett stage: I gotta say, I think I like this o...Read More »
Apparently there are a number of unused sound clips in the original Super Smash Bros. game for the N64 – one of which is Ness saying, “PK Starstorm!” You can supposedly hear it via a debug menu, here’s a video: I guess they had planned for Ness to have Starstorm abilities from the very start but only got around to adding it in Brawl? Any Smash Bros. superfans got any more ...Read More »
BigSharkZ sent this is in: Here I present you one of my latest hacks, “Against Giygas V2″ a stage I made in the past, but that I now revamped by removing the platform, making the custom “song” for it, and fixing some textures. I’ve been hacking this game since two years ago, and I hope you’ll enjoy this stage as much as I do. I gotta say, that’s one of th...Read More »
Quinn sent this in a while back, it’s a remix of the “F-F-Fire!” song from MOTHER 3. I don’t really know the story behind this remix, did someone make this specifically for this video, or did a Brawl fan find a remix and stick it in a video? I’m guessing the former but I’d love to know for sure. If someone else did make this, it’d be awesome to have the o...Read More »
I don’t know the source for this, but it’s a really cool pic. It was made back when Nintendo was still doing daily updates hyping up Smash Bros. Brawl: Pokey showed up in Smash Bros. Brawl, so it half came true. Having Giygas as a boss like this would’ve been extra cool too. I can’t imagine how one would actually beat Giygas in a situation like that, though. What would be ...Read More »
Good ol’ Tansunn sent in this cool discovery: I was browsing through the model files in Brawl and discovered an odd texture for onigiri in the Onett pack. I did some searching and finally discovered its location – hidden inside of a flower box where you’ll never be able to see it in game. Here is the location of the onigiri: Here it is with the flower box and grass hidden so y...Read More »
- Elise: This whole thing does remind me of a certain Pokemon episode. Thing is, Earthbound was released prior to that episode and from what I heard,...
- Sandata: Just to cover the basic fact, yes its comeing out on the Wii U.
- Benji: The Cover Makes a great wallpaper!
- Shannon Carr: I agree with Apple Kid. I’d love to have a Mother guide, even if it is in Japanese.
- Fjord: Animal crossing has a lot of cute references here and there of other nintendo franchises in all installments. New leaf just happens to feel...
