Tips for Buying EarthBound

January 27th, 2009 | Let's Chat

Hello there! I guess I’m supposed to ask a question or something, so here goes. Why does someone yell, “Oww!” at the name screen? And who says it?

I think it’s Lucas screaming when Claus slams into him.

I wondered that too O_O It’s kinda comical, so maybe it was just supposed to tell you how wacky the rest of the game is 😛

It’s just an exclamation, like “Oh baby!” or “Dynamite!”

After they’re named, the characters must then be zapped into existence…

Because when the player shouted “Yep!” the character names became forcefully imprinted into their brains. So they all yelped in pain at the same time.

It’s Michael Jackson. He’s “thrilled” by your naming decisions.

I always thought it was “Wow!” as if to say “Those are some pretty awesome names!”

Sounds like “Wow!” to me.

It’s the A Button. Getting its head jammed into a wall of hard plastic must be at least slightly painful.

It’s like those exclamations people yell sometimes in music, there are plenty other of references back to music, why wouldn’t this be another one?

It’s Tomato. When he was trying to hack the naming screen he got frustrated and slammed his face into his monitor. He screamed so loudly it was imprinted into the game code itself.

That sound means it’s epic adventure time.

“YOOOOW! It’s time to go!!”

I never heard that before on the naming screen.

Oh, you mean in EarthBound. I thought he was talking about the naming screen in MOTHER 3.
