If EarthBound Zero were real, this is what fighting a crow from Ninten’s vantage point would look like. It’s actually kind of creepy somehow. Thanks to Ness Hero for the pic! You know what would be cool? If someone made an enemy guide for EarthBound or EarthBound Zero and used real-life pics for as much stuff as they could.

Basically, he gathered ten other people named Hirokazu Tanaka and had them all sing a song about how they’re named Hirokazu Tanaka and how they didn’t pick the name themselves. You can check it out here: The official description also inc...Read More »

A while ago I posted about an event put together by Japanese MOTHER fans called 321 MOTHER. You can read about the 2006 event here. A couple weeks ago the 2009 event took place, and this time three regular visitors here attended, Kyosuke, Chewy, and Izumi. Chewy was kind enough to write up a report about the 2009 event, which you can read here. She also took some pics of the swag she procured whi...Read More »

This topic came up in the last post about the sample/prototype EarthBound board currently on eBay, so I thought I’d make a post about it here.

I’m usually pretty slow when it comes to keeping up with stuff like this, I don’t even know what to call them! But here’s a cool MOTHER 3 video set to a vocaloid singing “Romeo and Cinderella”. If someone more well-versed in this stuff could help explain it, that would be swell 😀 ...Read More »

Over at Destructoid they’ve been posting a list of the top 50 games of the past decade, and MOTHER 3 got a mighty high spot at #3. Check it out here. There are two things of interest about this: one, I think had this been a magazine or any other site, MOTHER 3 wouldn’t have even been considered, and two, unlike some of the other “best game” magazine lists that have showed ...Read More »
