July 31st, 2009 | EarthBound, Events, Videos | 26 Comments

If you’ve been to Starmen.Net anytime this week, you’ll already know that the annual EarthBound Funktastic Gameplay event is happening very soon. In fact, it starts in only a few hours from the time of this posting. EDIT: You can now visit the EBFGP site here! Check out the pre-event video and chat here! It sounds like there will be a live video feed and live chat for each day, so thi...Read More »

Yesterday I posted an EarthBound preview by Total! magazine, an old European magazine. Today is the actual review! From a technical standpoint, I think this might actually be the best EarthBound review we’ve dug up so far. The review spans four pages, has pictures from many different parts of the game instead of just Onett, and the reviewer actually played all the way through the game! But m...Read More »

Niall Lynch was cool enough to send me a bunch of 1995 EarthBound-related scans from Total!, a European gaming magazine. I want to keep the preview and the review separate though, so for now here is the little preview: (click to increase size) I’ll have the actual multi-page review up soon (later today or tomorrow probably) – I gotta say, it’s probably the best review of EarthBo...Read More »

If you’re not sure who Bill Trinen is, he’s basically like the ultra-top guy in Nintendo of America’s translation/localization department known as the “Treehouse”. You’ve probably seen him during Nintendo’s E3 events, usually joking around with Reggie and interpreting for Miyamoto on stage. He’s a pretty important guy in the company and helps the Ame...Read More »

 

July 28th, 2009 | Itoi, MOTHER 1 | 25 Comments

Yesterday, I posted this in celebration of MOTHER’s 20th anniversary, and it’s been well-received. People even sent in congratulation messages to Itoi, because this was the very first thing Itoi said on his site today: There were quite a lot of e-mails from overseas yesterday. 20 years ago from the 27th was the day MOTHER was released, and the messages were celebrating that. It’s...Read More »

 

July 27th, 2009 | Auctions, EarthBound, Merchandise | 24 Comments

Some EarthBound pogs went up on eBay just now – if you’re a collector or have been around for a while, you know that these are pretty rare 😯 I never understood the whole pog fad, but I remember seeing the ad in Nintendo Power for these EarthBound pogs back in the day. I should’ve gotten them when I had the chance. I’ve seen a lot of rare EarthBound merchandise in real l...Read More »

On July 27, 1989, Shigesato Itoi’s RPG “MOTHER” was released in Japan. Twenty years later, we take a look back at the game that started the series 😀 I put together a page to commemorate the event. It’s nothing too special, but check it out here! Ninten cake by PoeTrader! ...Read More »

The awesomely talented Elf Kitty (example of awesomeness) met Reggie at a Nintendo company picnic today: She says this: This was at the Nintendo company picnic today. After the photo I said “So can I ask you about Mother 3 now?!”. He just laughed and said “You can ask, but it doesn’t mean that I’ll answer anything!” It was pretty funny 🙂 ...Read More »

 

July 26th, 2009 | Weekly Round-Up | 18 Comments

Twenty-eight weeks down! For some reason, I get the feeling that Ness’s adventure probably lasted about that long. Seems about right to me anyway. I know the player’s guide tries to give some kind of timeframe too, but I forget what it is. Anyway, in some ways 28 weeks is a long time. And for some things it seems very short. For EarthBound Central, it’s both at the same time. Alr...Read More »

 

July 25th, 2009 | EarthBound, Food, Images | 16 Comments

I don’t remember where I came across this picture. It might’ve been from an EarthBound convention some people had a while back. Anyway, Mr. Saturn pancakes! On a laptop! (click to biggify) I love pancakes, so I don’t know why I never thought to make those before. I’ll have to try next time. Anybody else ever attempted to make EarthBound-ish food like this before? ...Read More »
