If you missed it live, you can watch the archive on YouTube here: We covered LOTS ...Read More »

KamiWasa posted this video the other day – it’s a 3D version of the old hot spring guy from MOTHER 3! I’m always amazed at how well MOTHER series stuff looks in 3D like this. I guess the simple art style lends itself to it or something. ...Read More »

Supergamerk sent me this video of a battle with Diamond Dog in EarthBound. It starts out normal but ends in a silly way: I wonder if this would be useful for speedrunners in some way, or if there’s a quicker way to beat Diamond Dog. ...Read More »
EBfan sent this quick message to me: I don’t know if this was already posted but while surfing on the web, I came across a youtuber called Biddy Diddle (Feathery-Wings on deviantart) who made a really awesome Ninten plush doll last year.
