Back then, very few people outside of Japan know that Earthbound is a sequel to MOTHER. And this game is a huge improvement over its predecessor. This time, you can see enemies, you can heal yourself while you take damage, and you have 4 fighters at a time rather than 3. You are also no longer limited to the series' equivalent of America (called Eagleland here), as you can also go to Foggyland (pa... read more

SPOOKY Critique: EarthBound

1 month, 1 week ago at Jun 10 0:17
HAY UNA VERSIÓN EN ESPAÑOL MÁS ABAJO. EarthBound is all about love, but not in the way one would expect. The game's message it's not that battles can be entirely solved by dialogue or hugs, as opposite of what other game like Undertale could say (this doesn't mean that I discredit its respective message), but that love it's more of a motivation, a fuel to fight and a point of support when help ... read more

Description: In the year 199X, in the village of Onett, on the continent of Eageland... Young Ness was asleep one night when a loud crashing noise awoke him suddenly. As he rushes out of bed and up to a nearby hill, he encounters a strange meteor, carrying a single passenger: a mysterious insect-like being named Buzz Buzz. Buzz Buzz tells him that in the future, an evil alien being known as Gigyas has conquered the world, and the only one who can stop him are 4 young kids: 3 boys and a girl. Ness, of course, is one of the chosen ones... Ness now must find the other three children: Paula, a young girl from Twoson with remarkable psychic ... (more)

SPOOKY Critique: EarthBound

“HAY UNA VERSIÓN EN ESPAÑOL MÁS ABAJO.

EarthBound is all about love, but not in the way one would expect. The game's message it's not that battles can be entirely solved by dialogue or hugs, as opposite of what other game like Undertale could say (this doesn't mean that I discredit its respective message), but that love it's more of a motivation, a fuel to fight and a point of support when help is needed, and it's only when the battle is against evil itself that it becomes the ultimate weapon. In order to comunicate this message the game creates relationships between the protagonists and several other characters and then proceeds to show its importance in various situations. Ness' father helps to save progress, Ness' mother's support and cares help Ness not to feel alone and lo” read more

IGN's Top 100 RPGS of All Time (2017) (100 games items)

" EarthBound is a weird, wonderful game about four kids who save the world. Early proof that not all RPGs need fantasy settings, EarthBound is one of the best turn-based RPGs of the 16-bit era and takes place in a town that feels like it could be anywhere in middle America. That modern setting mixed with bizarre, offbeat humor makes it a unique experience and has helped it maintain its cult status as something special and very different from its contemporaries. EarthBound has a great turn-based "

Games I've Beaten At Least Once (738 games items)

" Beat September 9, 2017 You know, as much as I've always liked Earthbound, I've never beaten it...until now. I finally just said, "Now's the time." I spent a weekend just plowing through the game. On the plus side, that weekend let me see this game through from beginning to end...on the negative side, it only took me a weekend, and I was left wanting more....but better to understay its welcome than overstay it, I suppose. Anyway, if a fun, quirky RPG sounds like something that would be up your "

Lolager4now's Top 10 Favourite JRPGs (10 games items)

" One of the quirkiest, left-field, and down-right strangest games I have ever played in my life. Earthbound, when it came out and still to this day, is one of the most unique JRPGs to ever comeout. Excluding its sequel, there is really not a lot like this. Unlike its peers where they set in a medieval fantasy world or a futuristic cyberpunk era, it has a very urban, contemporary setting, with enemies being stray dogs, crows, signs, abstract art and items ranging from candy bars to cookies.
