I just thought of something, you think the other two games may come over if EarthBound sells well once it re-releases? :p

I love Earthbound, it's one of my all time favorites. You can't deny it's extremely overrated, and fantastic at it's job of forming a personal relationship with you.
When I saw someone give Mother 3 an 8.5 I cringed, even though I told myself it's overrated.

Seriously, how can anyone hate this game? It's a fantastic game, but nothing's wrong with acknowledging it's overrated. Metroid Prime is overrated. Megaman is overrated. Zelda is overrated. I still love these series, a giant pedestal other people put them on ain't gonna stop me from seeing what it truly is, and loving that truth.

@HeatBombastic
I think people get more confused by what you are comparing these games to.
There are lots of games that have the same gameplay, F-Zero vs. Wipeout, Gears of War vs. Uncharted, Halo vs. Killzone, Pokemon vs. another catching and training game, etc.
My point is that what you might call overrated may be the better choice in comparison to what you would choose as a 'better' game. This goes both ways, so I don't really see the point of bringing it up and just saying, 'Oh if you like this, then maybe you'll like this just as much or better'.
So, what game are you comparing Earthbound to for it to be 'overrated'? Dungeons and Dragons, Shen Megami Tensei...?
This game would cost $80 or more on eBay or where ever else, this is a win win for this to be released.

Earthbound is not a bad game. It's just an overrated game that has been hyped to hell and back simply because it's a rarer game that's not cheap to buy. When you can't buy a game so easily, it can be hyped to unrealistic expectations. It's essentially Dragon Quest with an unique setting. Perhaps when I play it again when it's on the Wii U VC, I might change my opinion on it. But no matter how good it is, Xenoblade Chronicles will always be better.

Well, I know for sure I'm buying it. I payed $70 for the cartridge version a few years ago, then sold it off once I was done. I'm not really a collector anymore, but I merely collected to play the games. I've gotten my fill on on retro gaming. It's just much more convenient to buy VC for me these days.

It's not the gameplay that makes this so special, its the overall atmosphere and the experience.

The story, the characters, the dialogue, the music~ It all comes together so perfectly~

ok so...it appears they are not changing the music either, 7 years of copyright speculation out the window?
yall didnt see this coming?
what was happening here was too many people wrapping their heads around too many what ifs.
all that brain-courage and headaches for nothing.
sometimes you just got to be gangsta about it and chill.

You see, there's a difference between an overrated franchise and an overrated game.

Some those games you listed are pretty different. The only reason Gears and Uncharted even get compared is because one is only on Xbox and the other is only on PS.

Currently playing: Super Smash Bros: Wii U and Mount & Blade: Warband: Viking Conquest.

Good news guys: Earthbound Central found and article by Kotaku where Bill Trinen is quoted as saying there is no copyright issues in terms of the music.

So I guess we were arguing and worring over nothing all these years. :p

@Retro lol :)

@ogo In all seriousness, I probably should have dug through the thread and read all of the posts, but I missed that when I skimmed through the thread, and I figured that wasn't something that was being discussed too much, so I was pretty sure I would be the first to make note of it.

What made you already aware that copyright issues were not a problem? Was it just a gut feeling? I just ask because serious MOTHER fans have been accepting copyright as the problem for years now, so if they didn't know, who could?

thats a good question...im a serious mother/earthbound fan myself (do people not know by now?) but im not one of those guys thats going to skip lunch over it.
to me it makes sense what nintendo was/is doing all along.
sometimes issues get resolved, no matter how difficult they may seem
if folks scream loud enough, people react. its really simple homie.

He knew that Reggie hates us and wants money. He wants to charge $50 for it too since you guys want it soooo badly...

And for the record, the game is overrated. It's only popular because it wasn't released here lately. Same thing happened with the Wii RPG trio and MegaMan Legends 3. They're not THAT good. ;)
