EarthBound 64 Video Clip
Official EarthBound posters are notoriously rare and usually fetch really high prices on eBay. After a year or two of not seeing one, a poster popped up on eBay the other day for $2499. Man, you’d have to beat up like 800 Runaway Dogs to afford that ...Read More »
Last year I bought a copy of MOTHER 1 for the Famicom but never really sat down to took a good look at it. So I did that just now! One of the things that immediately stands out is its manual – it isn’t a little booklet like most games. Instead, it’s one giant unfold-y thing with the world map on one side and all the info on the other. Here’s a look at some of the info parts...Read More »
Earlier today, Satoru Iwata posted a tweet about another piece of MOTHER 2 merchandise he has – one of the super-rare MOTHER 2 jackets! Here’s a translation of what he says: Hello, this is Iwata of Nintendo. Continuing with yesterday, here’s another piece of MOTHER 2 merchandise. This is a special sukajan jacket given to the staff. The logo is faithfully recreated in embroidery ...Read More »
In a recent Tweet, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata said: Hello, this is Iwata of Nintendo. A Wii U Virtual Console version of MOTHER 2 will be released on the 20th. It’s a game I personally worked on as a programmer and is full of memories. I found something at my house that really takes me back, so I’m posting a photo of it here. The photo is of a boxed copy of MOTHER 2 that basicall...Read More »
A fan by the name of Ryan recently sent this in: Hey there, I’ve recently been learning how to do leatherworking and finally made something I’m sorta proud of. It’s a Starman wallet. I put an imgur gallery up here. I have an Etsy store where I’m trying to sell it, too. But, that’s probably not important. Just wanted to share with someone ^^ And here’s one of the...Read More »
Somehow or other I stumbled upon this review of the MOTHER 3 Handbook and thought I’d share it: I wasn’t too involved with the book myself, so every time I see it I’m like, “Oh man, I forgot how much crazy work they put into that thing.” In fact, I haven’t actually read through the entire thing myself yet – there’s too much stuff in there for my bra...Read More »
One of my favorite parts in EarthBound is the Kraken scene – I really like how the map looks totally different while you’re sailing (and the music there!) and then the tiny part where the boat captain throws his slippers at the Kraken. I bring this up because Poe spent days folding allll the Kraken-themed shirts for Fangamer. Apparently they’re back in stock, so if you missed the...Read More »
For the past couple of months I’ve been reporting on the official MOTHER 2 iPhone 5 case that Shigesato Itoi’s company released in Japan. Well, a fan outside of Japan recently imported it and here’s the report! So, I got my Mother 2 case in today direct from Chiba. It cost me $38 and it took a few days to get here, but it was well worth it. It actually only took about 4 days to g...Read More »
Some years ago Fangamer released some really nice Courage Badges to go along with its MOTHER 3 Handbook. They quickly ran out of stock and I don’t know if they have them anymore, but very recently they released a version of it in pin form! Check out the Franklin Pin! I doubt it reflects lightning (if anything it’d probably attract it?) so I don’t recommend wearing it while fig...Read More »
A long time back, the original MOTHER game had an official soundtrack released. Except it wasn’t music from the game – it was mostly actual studio music full of vocals and such. Most people know that this was released on a CD, but it was also released on cassette tapes! It’s actually really hard to find the cassette versions though, so they’re one of those rare relics that ...Read More »
