EarthBound Zero Remake Update
A few years back, OKeijiDragon started working on a documentary video series about big-name video games that wound up canceled. The first video was to be about MOTHER 3 (particularly the Nintendo 64 version)… and the 2012 work-in-progress version of the video is now available for all to see! The video is really information-dense and uses on-screen text rather than a narrator, so it’s ...Read More »
For years Jeffman and I have worked on-and-off putting together the next version of the MOTHER 3 translation patch – mostly fixing existing bugs, glitches, typos, and such. Before releasing the new version 1.2 patch, though, we need to test it out all the way through to make sure stuff hasn’t broken… and I had an almost spur-of-the-moment idea to stream it live while testing it....Read More »
Nintendo’s digital E3 event is today, and it kicked off with a joke about Reggie and fans wanting a MOTHER 3 translation: The joke’s gotten a lot of mixed reactions from fans, it’s fascinating to watch! I’m still just amazed that the game was mentioned in any way ...Read More »
Way back during the MOTHER 3 fan translation, I was always coming across lines of text that I never recognized or map locations that I never saw in the actual game. I’ve showcased some of these in past updates, and here’s a small bit to add to that list: Thanks to birby100 for documenting these! If you ever get bored and want to peek at MOTHER 3′s script, I posted the text block...Read More »
One of the biggest, most high-quality hacks that’s in the works is Unearthed, and it looks like it’s going to feature an addition to the battle system – blue magic/PSI! In other games, this refers to being able to learn a spell or special technique after an enemy uses it. EarthBound had nothing like this at all, but here’s a demo of the new learning system in action: Unear...Read More »
There’s a recent new YouTube series that looks at old games… but it’s a little different from the usual Adjective Game Reviewer style. One of the latest games to get reviewed is EarthBound – give it a look! Man, I love all that sprite work – nice job! ...Read More »
Everyone knows about this promo video for EarthBound that ran in stores back in the day: But another one has recently emerged – one that I’ve never seen before! This one was apparently played on kiosks in stores too: This is definitely an improvement over the first video, although with everything EarthBound has to offer it seems silly that they emphasize that it has “More than ...Read More »
The other day, AndyPerfect on TwitchTV got an interesting thing to happen during a run of EarthBound: Hey guys! Some of you might remember me from several months ago when I posted a glitchless speedrun of Earthbound on here. Well, I’m still at this game trying to get better and better. Recently, I’ve started running a category called Any%, which entails beating the game as fast as poss...Read More »
