  • News Small My Nintendo Reward Discounts Arrive in North America

    You're 'Bound' to love them...

    If My Nintendo was a member of a typical social group in a sitcom, it'd be the one that was recast because the original actor wanted too much money. It's just like the charming Club Nintendo that we all knew well, but it's not the same, and arguably not as good. Nintendo has failed to win everyone over with the new...

  • Video New Earthbound Secret Discovered in Opening Chapter

    20 years later...

    Earthbound has been around for over two decades in the US and about a tenth of that time in Europe, but nonetheless it's an old game. Imagine our surprise then when a new as yet undocumented part of the game came to light; pun wholly intended. As you can see from the video below, by having a second controller connected you can...

  • News Shigesato Itoi on the Mother Series' Popularity, Denies Mother 4

    Apparently, making Mother 4 would be like running a marathon with no breath

    The Mother series is perhaps most notable for breaking from JRPG tradition by telling a tale led by children in the modern day. The quirky humor present is an additional bonus, setting the whole experience in a rather bizarre and somewhat dry tone. At any rate, there are...

  • News Moving Musical Iwata Tribute Casts Onett Theme in a Whole New Light

    8 minutes of Gentle Love

    Outpourings of admiration for late Nintendo President Satoru Iwata have continued since his passing in July. The performing duo Gentle Love, consisting of Metal Gear Solid and Bayonetta series composer Norihiko Hibino and pianist AYAKI, have added their own respects in the form of a soulful arrangement of the Onett theme...

  • News Crazy EarthBound Fans Open EarthBound-themed Media Kickstarter

    Many other, equally crazy EarthBound fans are backing it

    It's 20 years old, with a prequel and sequel never officially released in the West, yet EarthBound continues to possess a significant presence in the gaming world. You can largely thank the game's dedicated fanbase for that; some so dedicated that they're planning to produce a cultural...

  • Video Check Out this Adorable Tribute to the Mother Series

    That's 'Earthbound' to us

    Regardless of who wrote them, fans are the ones who can really tell the story of a game better than anyone, and that statement is no truer than in this video which pays homage to the Mother series, which sadly still only exists as a single game outside of Japan. All of the peculiarity, all of the charm, and all of the...

  • Book Review Boss Fight Books - Chrono Trigger

    There's more than one way to revisit the past

    It's difficult to write about video games. Believe us, we know. The medium is, strictly speaking, a compound one. Whereas writing about works of art in most media entails a relatively straightforward discussion of how well or poorly the work in question used the tools available to that medium, writing...

  • News Signed EarthBound Cartridge to Be Auctioned Off for Cancer Patient

    “For James”

    EarthBound is all about strong bonds; not only within the game but also its fan community. There is nothing that may demonstrate this point more fluently in recent days than the story of a special EarthBound cartridge that will soon be auctioned off during the EarthBound Bash marathon. The cartridge began in the hands of James...

  • News Fangamer Announces Earthbound Charity Event

    Weekend marathon of the timeless RPG for a good cause

    Fangamer has been hinting at something big and Earthbound-related for a while now, which should come as no surprise to those who know the company. They wear their passion for the cherished Mother series on their sleeves, so using this love to raise money seems like the perfect marriage...
