JRokujuushi recently sent this in: I recently started uploading my music and arrangements to YouTube, and one of the arrangements was a mix of the first part of the Giygas fight and the Natural Killer Cyborg fight.

Each week for the past few weeks I’ve been selling some cool and unusual stuff from my EarthBound/MOTHER collection. This week is a DVD of the movie that helped inspire Giygas!

Komaru recently sent in this scan from the UK magazine Retro Gamer that talks about anti-piracy measures in video games. EarthBound’s anti-piracy measures are almost infamous by now, as you can see: (click for full image) There are a few tiny facts off in the article, but I can understand why they were made – in my original article here I didn’t mention that each start-up check ...Read More »

BigSharkZ sent this is in: Here I present you one of my latest hacks, “Against Giygas V2” a stage I made in the past, but that I now revamped by removing the platform, making the custom “song” for it, and fixing some textures.
