Blk_Mage_Ctype commented on Pandora's Tower Trailer is Very Japanese in A ...:

It looks good, but I'm not gonna get too excited. Hate to be a pessimist, but NoA has let so many promising-looking Japanese games come and go that I have little faith in them to localize any game that doesn't have Mario, Link, Kirby, Pikachu, or Samus Aran in it...

Ugh! Taxes on Downloads?!

I'll tell ya... Uncle Sam reaches into out pockets and rings our wallets dry! And what do we get in return? Free National Healthcare? New Bridges? Repaired Streets? Perhaps a better funded Public School System?

Nope... In truth, none of that money will ever make it's was back to us.
It just fills the pockets of greedy politicians to fund their meaningless wars that they fight in the persuit of greater wealth, alsong with our Social Security...

Blk_Mage_Ctype commented on Rumour: EarthBound Not Coming to Virtual Console:

I'm convinced that the whole thing is a load of BS... Professional Companies like ESRB don't "accidentally" rate games from a company if said game was never submitted to them for review in the first place, that just isn't how it works...

NoA would have to approach ESRB and specifically ask them to Rate the game, it couldn't happen by accident.
This is just Starmen's way of rationalizing why their EB Siege & PK CALL'N Campaigns failed to persuade NoA to release the game on VC.

I think that NoA is just sitting on EarthBound and will most likely release it on VC next year on 6/01/10, EarthBound's 15th Anniversary.
If you need proof, consider Super Smash Bros 64, it was released in Japan on 1/21/99, and was released on VC 1/20/09, one day shy of it's 10 Year Anniversary. They couldn't release it on it's exact date due to the fact that Japanese VC games are always released on Fridays, but they got as close as they could. SSB64 still isn't on the American VC, which leads me to believe that it will be released on VC around 04/26/09, which would be SSB64's American 10th Anniversary.

If this theory is correct, then it will likely be the same case for EarthBound.

I just got through putting an SNES & GBA Emulator on my Modded Wii through Homebrew Channel.
I'll still download a legit copy if it ever comes out because I support the series, but I'm not gonna feel bad about using a ROM of a game that is entirely unavailable to me threw any other means.

Besides, I already own a legit copy of EarthBound, so I'm not doing anything illegal.

EarthBound & MOTHER 3 on Wii, here I come!

@Drake,

I e-mail NoA about it and they just gave me a canned reply about how they could understand my desire to see EarthBound on VC, but they have no plans to release it yet, and that I should check back at their website periodically to see if it's announced.

When Nintendo won't even disprove a nasty rumor about their games, you know something's wrong.

After taking a moment to calm down and think about it, I've come up with afew reasons why this rumor could be BS...

1.) Came from Starmen.net

2.) NoA willing to go through the trouble to painstakingly alter the music from a game that they never even bothered to rerelease on GBA due to their killer hatred of the series for losing them money.

3.) NoJ has never stopped NoA from Butchering their games before...
.
4.) Why would we get a game that NoJ hasn't even gotten the prequel of yet?

5.) Chrono Trigger got away with it, and so did Animal Crossing with Rockin' K.K.
