CWillyHD recently documented a way to skip ahead to Twoson well before you should be able to visit it. It’s more intended for speedrunners and just for fun, but it’s really cool to see: I never even imagined that this sort of trick was possible, but I bet it could be used for all kinds of other tricks, although none will probably be as useful as this one. I’m always amazed at ho...Read More »

The Angry Video Game Nerd recently posted an episode about EarthBound – and it’s his longest episode yet at over 40 minutes. It’s got a nice mix of insightful commentary and valid criticism, along with a look at various series details and fan theories. But more than anything, it’s offers a neat view at how EarthBound looks to retro gamers who missed out on it 23 years ago: ...Read More »

A couple months back, Nintendo released a miniature Super NES box with a whole bunch of games on it, including EarthBound. I forget how many times EarthBound has been re-released by this point, but it’s actually quite common for re-released games to get minor changes that most people never notice. Part of my job involves hunting for these changes though, so I was eager to see what might̵...Read More »

Jared Claybrooks recently posted a new animation – this one features Ness locked in battle with the Titanic Ant: I really like the fast-paced, over-the-top style of the video, and in many ways it reminds me of an old EarthBound fan comic series, EBZ. In any case, it’s clear a ton of time and dedication went into the animation! If you’ve missed them, Jared has made a few other MO...Read More »

A bunch of EarthBound things have happened lately, so here’s a quick look at some of them! Lasgna Cat is back, and one of the short episodes featured some MOTHER 3 stuff: One of those super-rare MOTHER 2 jackets went up for auction in Japan.
