Earthbound Lives in This New Citizens of Earth Teaser

After a failed Kickstarter campaign, the RPG adventure Citizens of Earth was fortunate enough to be picked up by publisher Atlus to help bring it to the world successfully. Since then, the game has come along very nicely, and its latest teaser trailers shows its heavy influences from the Nintendo’s classic Earthbound more than ever. Instead of a child imbued with psychokinetic abilities, however, Citizens of Earth has you playing as Vice President of the World, recruiting various citizens to [...]

 

Check Out brentalfloss’ New Lyrical Game Music Album, “Flossophy”

For me, brentalfloss popped up right at the every end of the video game internet celebrity boom, started by trendsetters like the Angry Video Game Nerd.  His signature act of adding competent lyrics to game melodies was truly inspired and of course hilarious, right from the get go. Flash forward about five years later to today, and brentalfloss has just released his third album of “With Lyrics” songs and original pieces in an album titled, Flossophy, which I gotta say is [...]

Fan 3-D Rendering of Earthbound’s Onett Is Wonderful

Earthbound is a serious contender for greatest game of all time….that I have never played. Which is odd, because the 50′s styled, Japanese-in-origin SNES RPG seems totally and completely up my alley. Now that’s out on the Wii U Virtual Console, I’ve been really jonesing to get my hands on it…but now that I’ve seen Christopher Behr’s beautiful renderings of the 16-bit game in 3-D, I’m not sure if it will be enough. Christopher Behr, a “3-D designer for hire”, according [...]

Mother 4 Fan-Made Game In The Works (Squee!)

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-fNbJIl_Mkg[/youtube] One of the best RPG’s –nay– video games ever made is seeing a continuation, but not by the hands of famed copywirter/ Mother creator Shigesato Itoi. This is directly fan-made and it looks simply amazing. Everything you have come to know about the Mother and its sequels;  it’s sounds, themes, and humor appears to be prevalent in the trailer, which was released today. Everything from the slightly spooky music to the art and battle system have been replicated, but upgraded [...]

EarthBound is Now Available on the Wii U Virtual Console

The wait is finally over, and after nearly two decades since its original SNES release, EarthBound is finally in North America via the Wii U’s Virtual Console. Shigesato Itoi’s cult classic follows Ness and his party as they go off to fight the galactic terror known as Giygas. If many of you have been hearing about this game for years but unable to shill out absurd amounts for one of the rare physical copies, then for $10, this amazing game [...]

Earthbound Coming to Virtual Console — Prayers Have Been Answered

After years of asking, Nintendo has finally budged and will be releasing the Super Nintendo classic Earthbound on the Wii U Virtual Console later this year. Some younger gamers may recognize the protagonist Ness from the Super Smash Bros. series. Now is as good a chance as any for these newcomers to get acquainted with his origins, and one of the best role-playing games that graced the Super Nintendo. Just as well, veterans that have been pleading for this will [...]

[News] A Mother Title (Not 4) on the Horizon

Shigesato Itoi, the creator of the Mother/Earthbound series has created a bit of a stir with his recent tweets hinting at a possible upcoming Mother release. I think we are all hoping that this could finally be the localization and port of Mother 3 to the West, perhaps on the Wii U Virtual Console or Nintendo 3DS eShop. There are myriad possibilities, but one option is apparently “out of the question,” and that’s the release of a Mother 4. Itoi [...]
