Tips for Buying EarthBound

January 17th, 2010 | Weekly Round-Up

Already a new week! Yikes!

Community News

Woozle wuzzle. I can’t possibly keep up with every single thing that happens in the EarthBound community, so if you’ve done something cool or if you know of something cool that belongs here, let me know!

Cool Auctions & Merchandise

After a few slow post-holiday weeks, EarthBound-related merch has been showing up more and more. Here’s some of the cool stuff that showed up this past week!

Remember, you can also see all the EarthBound / MOTHER stuff on eBay all gathered in one handy place here!

EarthBound cart prices have been crazy still, with almost all cart-only auctions set at $100 at LEAST 😯 Seriously, you know things are getting out of hand when you see things like this:

Unless there’s ever a rerelease or a Virtual Console release or something like that, these prices are just gonna get crazier year after year 😯

Anyway, here’s some other cool stuff on Yahoo! Auctions Japan:

And stuff on Amazon:

What’s Up With Itoi

  • Nothing too special this week either. I guess one thing that’s noteworthy is that for the past year or two Itoi has been making homemade jam after someone taught him how. He calls himself the Old Jam Guy sometimes. His most recent creation was ginger jam. I bet that’s really tough to make just right.

Final Thought

People seemed to like the “Where’s Ness” thing from last week, so here’s another one from ancient days. I didn’t make these, I just have them saved from years and years ago.

BTW, if anyone wants to make any of these, send them in and I’ll post them here each week (or more often if there are more). I like these things, I just don’t have time to make any myself.

Have fun!

*Where’s ness spoiler* the chosen four robot is jeff, ness is in the left hand corner along with poo so it can’t be them and paula’s robot has a ribbon. the hat is on mario and im assuming the backpacks on that blonde kid right behind tessie

I would’ve said the robot was Paula but I guess not O_o

Pigmask Private said on Jan. 17, 2010

Um, you’re pretty wrong buddy. Paula’s the robot and the “blonde” kid with the backpack is totally Jeff. Paula’s robot didn’t have a ribbon, and all the rest of the chosen four are in the pic.

Thought I was logged in. OOP

Ricardo said on Jan. 17, 2010

Paula is the robot. Ness is next to Samus. Mario is wearing the Ness Cap. Jeff is wearing Ness Backpack

pooppoop said on Jan. 17, 2010

a good addition for that picture: list all the non-earthbound characters in the picture

i got mario, samus, link, bommerman, kirby, that guy from “balloon fight”. the kid in the blue hat looks familiar. was it an snes game where you had to build robots?

Komaru said on Jan. 17, 2010

At Pooppoop:
The kid with the blue hat is from Harvest Moon.

Tessie is swimming on land!

I wonder if Itoi had a strawberry jam he made attacked him?

Halloween said on Jan. 18, 2010

Wow, for the price of a broken, 15 year old SNES cart you could almost buy a brand new video game… and it will probably sell.

That’s fine I guess, Mother can belong to the fans, forever profiting from themselves.

Would of posted this on the easy patch post but it’s not popular so I’m posting here. Can easy patch be applied to an already saved file.

Gurp said on Jan. 18, 2010

Ha, while the Strawberry Tart was enough in Mother 3, it would have also been funny if there was some kind of ‘pork jelly’.
