Earthbound!!
 
It seems like whenever there's a few people talking about a fun, older game on here, one or two of em go off and start playing it and then fill whatever threads they're in with discussion about the game.

So since I'm bored, I wanna do that in here:(. I'm thinking earthbound :O

Esuohlim Mar 27th, 2007 01:04 AM

IN ON THIS

I play Earthbound every December. I could list a bunch of reasons why I always cream myself over the mention of this game but nobody wants to read lists, pffft.

Apparently there are people working on translating Mother 3 completely into English and then releasing it as patches for the roms when they're finished. You have no idea how happy I'll be when this happens, and from the looks of things they're pretty much almost done :D http://www.mother3.org/

Emu Mar 27th, 2007 01:06 AM

I picked up Ico today. It's as pretty, if not prettier, than Shadow of the Colossus. I fucking love it.

Zomboid Mar 27th, 2007 01:16 AM

MILHOUSE SAME HERE ONLY IT'S EVERY SUMMER FOR ME I JUST WANTED TO DO IT NOW INSTEAD.

I also check that site every few days. I looked at it today and I'm really happy at the little "gifts" :D

emu I don't have a ps2 anymore. Try to think of games where people can just go and download the rom, jerk.

timrpgland Mar 27th, 2007 01:37 AM

I've actually been playing a bit of Earthbound lately since I made my brother give me his cartridge (for my birthday).

Zomboid Mar 27th, 2007 01:53 AM

Alright well since milhouse is willing to play and tim already is, I just started a new game :O.

I usually go with peanut flavor text boxes but I'm going with banana this time. I dunno why no other game has picked up on this awesome feature.

Lenor Mar 27th, 2007 02:25 AM

Wow, zomboid I never knew you were such a freak. eh' makes sense.

Zomboid Mar 27th, 2007 02:37 AM

Hey lenor do you think that maybe we could have even one thread where you don't run in calling attention to yourself like the stupid, smelly cunt that you are? Maybe you could go find a post by noob, quote it and tell him HOW YOU'RE SOOOOOO GOING TO PARTY WHEN YOU TWO MEET UP? Just a thought.

Girl Drink Drunk Mar 27th, 2007 12:24 PM

This thread has inspired me to pick up my PS2 adapter and play some ROMS. I think I'll play some Super Street Fighter II. I should get back into Silent Hill later today.

THE MOCK WARRIOR Mar 27th, 2007 01:26 PM

I like earthbound!

Esuohlim Mar 27th, 2007 01:57 PM

All right I'll start a new game. I always pick peanut as well and I'm afraid of change so it's peanut again. :(

What do you name your PSI power? I always go with Zappa because it also sounds like a cool attack as well :o

And I agree, Lenor go away

EisigerBiskuit Mar 27th, 2007 02:34 PM

I got really bored and got Stronghold: Legends, since I enjoyed the others so much. It got really dumbed down. :(

Still fun.

noob3 Mar 27th, 2007 02:56 PM

When I play RPGs I leave all the names the same because I figure the writers know better than I would anyways. But my girlfriend had one of the psi powers named "ganja" lol :x

or i think it was psiganja or something with weed in the name :lol

Zomboid Mar 27th, 2007 04:25 PM

I always change that when I play this but this time I answered "what's your favorite thing?" with "Fuck" so I have PSI-FUCK!

Noob are you also playing? :O

Esuohlim Mar 27th, 2007 04:38 PM

We need to get GADZOOKS in here too

LOL I started a new game last week and I called it Zappa.

We're totally on the same wavelength man

Hey! I'm in here.

I was actually going to start on the original Mother for NES, but Sam flaked out on getting me a translated rom >: So maybe I will pick this up, maybe I will (but not until after Wednesday). I was playing it a week or two ago when I made the SEASON GAMES thread but I got stuck somewhere in Peaceful Rest Valley that I stopped playing.

I always pick Mint, and I always make my name Sheesh so it sounds like everyone is really disappointed to see me.

PS: Jixby is a huge Earthbound fan, so if there is one game you can probably get him to play it's this one (and maybe Mario 64 :lol)

Zomboid Mar 27th, 2007 09:02 PM

Gadzooks if you want a translated rom, bug me on aim and I'll send it to ya. It's zomboid2.

Emu Mar 27th, 2007 09:51 PM

My save state on Mother froze and I didn't have the will to start over :/

noob3 Mar 28th, 2007 01:40 AM

I'm not playing because Jen has the copy of Earthbound, not me! But I'll get her in here!

noob3 Mar 28th, 2007 01:42 AM

Zomboid Mar 28th, 2007 02:38 AM

I don't blame her :D. I don't think any of us are actually playing on SNES. I'm playing the ROM.

EisigerBiskuit Mar 28th, 2007 10:33 AM

I found my Stronghold Crusades Battlechest! Burn in flaming pitch, you christian devils, burn!

Black Flag Mar 28th, 2007 10:54 AM

guys i always meant to play earthbound but i never really got past the first 10 minutes without completely forgetting about it

maybe i should try again now maybe?

Esuohlim Mar 28th, 2007 11:13 AM

YES

Although it does start out slow until things start picking up after the first "Your Sanctuary" location. Mostly because the beginning is the most time you'll spend focusing on levelling up and if you're at Lv 11 or so before the first boss then it's not something you'll even really have to think about anymore afterwards.

So yeah, right now I'm spending about an hour fighting a bunch of skate punks and Yes-Man Juniors before I face Frank :o

Divisible by Waffle Mar 28th, 2007 12:02 PM

Am I the only one that thought of TV's Frank from Mystery Science Theater 3000 when I was fighting Frank in Earthbound? For some reason, I just envisioned that fight taking place.

I probably would too if I had a snes lying around. Maybe not even then though, cause save state is awesome.

Milhouse I think I'm a little ahead of you. I'm about to see the runaway five and head to zombie town.

Emu Mar 28th, 2007 04:51 PM

I could play it on the SNES but my copy has a loose save chip thing so if it gets shaken it tends to delete everything

Plus I like fast forward

Oh man I know. I always tell myself not to use save states so I could stay true to the game, but every time I play this I always get killed by Mondo Mole about six times before I remember what his major weakness once so I always end up cheating :eek

And yeah I like fast forwarding Runaway Five shows and those trips you take in Dr. Andonuts's flying saucer thing because they take like five minutes. That and that one long wait behind the waterfall you have to do. :(

Emu Mar 28th, 2007 05:32 PM

Does anyone else skip most of the Sanctuary bosses until just before you fight Diamond Dog?

Zomboid Mar 28th, 2007 05:33 PM

Yeah, that waterfall wait is bullshit so I skip past that. As for mondo mole... One time, I completely forgot about that area and came back and fought him when I had all 4 party members and way pretty high leveled. This time I just destroyed him with psi thunder.

edit: I kinda just replied to emu without knowing it :O

Emu Mar 28th, 2007 05:38 PM

Yeah but I do that on purpose every time I play ;(

Zomboid Mar 28th, 2007 05:42 PM

I don't cause I like all the experience I get from taking them out and it JUST FEELS RIGHT.

Don't forget to keep talking to that guy in the twoson hotel table until he gives you money :O

Esuohlim Mar 28th, 2007 06:10 PM

I don't either for the same reason. It gives me a sense of game progression. :o

I also fast forward to get through those messages of encouragement with the trippy backgrounds when you drink the coffee at Saturn Valley and Tenda Village.

I'm on my way to Twoson now, thanks for the tip Zomboid I never knew that :eek

Fathom Zero Mar 28th, 2007 06:21 PM

This is one of the most enjoyable RPGs ever made and I really need to play again. Now I can be on the go and play it too, so bonus!

One thing I noticed about it is that it is very well styled and intricate in the visuals. I like the color choices.

I'M GONNA PLAY RIGHT NOW.

Divisible by Waffle Mar 28th, 2007 06:24 PM

I've only beaten Carpainter (the Happy Happyist cult leader guy), after that I got tired of playing it on a keyboard. But I really like it.

GADZOOKS Mar 28th, 2007 06:29 PM

ok I'm starting this puppy up tonight, it's going to be a real laugh.

noob3 Mar 28th, 2007 08:22 PM

any1 who fast forwards runaway five does not know how to play earthbound while enjoying some fine marijuana

emulators are for homos :(

Cliff Steele Mar 28th, 2007 09:42 PM

earthbound always cheers me up tons!

i am just about to go in the destert now but i havent gotten to play in like 3 weeks :(

Emu Mar 28th, 2007 09:44 PM

When Brick Road follows you around in the desert it plays the opening riff from Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band :(

Zomboid Mar 28th, 2007 09:50 PM

Fuck threed is a fun town but not as cool as fourside. I dunno why that is.

MrAdventure Mar 28th, 2007 10:18 PM

man every time i play this game i'm all "i'm not gonna call his favorite food dicks i'm not gonna call his favorite food dicks" but then the mom is all "how about we all eat some dicks" or something and i cant help myself

Esuohlim Mar 28th, 2007 11:06 PM

Do you guess pronounce "Onett" so that it rhymes with "bonnet" or "cunt"? :x

I'm at Peaceful Rest Valley now, which is by far my least favorite part of the game. The damn spaceships keep giving me colds and I always run out of PP because I can't find butterflies. I don't think I've ever crossed it in one try :(

Zomboid Mar 28th, 2007 11:11 PM

Oh-net!

Esuohlim Mar 28th, 2007 11:20 PM

Also when I first played this game I kept on imagining what the "Five" town would be called, but I never ever got there :(

Fivetown :(

Emu Mar 28th, 2007 11:28 PM

I call it 1-net

noob3 Mar 29th, 2007 12:39 AM

Arn't the runaway 5 a real band? they did the lady from pinsecola?

executioneer Mar 29th, 2007 01:37 AM

"mothers understand these things- eat some shit and scoot up to bed" lol

GADZOOKS Mar 29th, 2007 04:35 AM

Sorry guys, I got an inkling to play Ristar first but it shouldn't take me more then a day. RIIIIIISTARRR

I remember when i first tried earthbound (WHICH WASNT TOO LONG AGO) and Jixby told me to put pussy as my favorite food. I was shocked when the mom told me that :(

Esuohlim Mar 29th, 2007 09:56 AM

"You caught a whiff of pussy, but just for a second" :(

Zomboid Mar 29th, 2007 04:33 PM

I forgot about how they worship you in threed once ya save them all from zombies. That's still one of the coolest towns in the game.

Esuohlim Mar 29th, 2007 04:45 PM

Just got to Threed myself and so begins my absolute favorite parts of the game, the Threed/Winters/Saturn Valley portion. I always liked going through Winters as Jeff, and of course free medical care and rest at Saturn Valley is awesome :sunglasses

It takes me a while to remember the order of events at Threed, but it's not as bad as the Summers/Dinosaur Museum/Fourside/Copolla Theater series events that I always get out of order as well and I keep having to pay money for tickets >:

noob3 Mar 29th, 2007 05:29 PM

how the fuck do u guys not have enough money when i play it on snes i just keep asking my dad for more $$$

Esuohlim Mar 29th, 2007 07:51 PM

It's not that I have no money it's why buy it when you don't have to :rolleyes

noob3 Mar 29th, 2007 08:12 PM

reading through tis thread it sounds like none of you guys even like earthbound :(

Zomboid Mar 29th, 2007 08:53 PM

Fuck that. I love this game and it's in my top 3. I just finished the mine in the desert on the way to fourside and saved the runaway 5 :D

executioneer Mar 29th, 2007 09:08 PM

i like earthbound! it's a fun game!

Zomboid Mar 29th, 2007 10:56 PM

How can you not like any game that has dialogue like this?

And battles like this!

noob3 Mar 29th, 2007 11:39 PM

who the fuck is luc

Zomboid Mar 29th, 2007 11:40 PM

ME. My entire name is very french :(

Esuohlim Mar 30th, 2007 12:11 AM

I love the dialogue. This game doesn't take itself seriously at all which prevents a lot of groans from coming out of me let me tell you!

I thought it was really funny that Water Bottles help restore your PP and I especially like that they didn't really point out the joke.

noob3 Mar 30th, 2007 01:07 AM

u didnt know that water increases your psychic powers hat joke is there to be found :(

zomboid you arn't ness!

Zomboid Mar 30th, 2007 01:16 AM

Water increases your PEEPEE LOLOLOLOL

I AM SO NESS. When I was like 10, I always wore a striped shirt and blue shorts and carried a baseball bat around. I didn't wear a hat though :(

noob3 Mar 30th, 2007 01:58 AM

case in point ;p

i am one of those people who refuses to change any names in rpgs :(

executioneer Mar 30th, 2007 02:43 AM

i always change all the names to rude words for comedy mad-libesque fun

executioneer Mar 30th, 2007 02:44 AM

hahah half the time when people are talking about characters by name in rpgs i don't have any clue who they're talking about :(

Zomboid Mar 30th, 2007 05:04 AM

lol best quote ever: Hey, talking to people at another table at a restaurant is like... breaking into their room and checking their drawers for valuables. Yeah, other people on important adventures do such things, but you have to admit that it's bizzare.

Oh yeah and if you see one of these things, catch it :O

Esuohlim Mar 30th, 2007 08:53 AM

I can't he goes too fast :(

Emu Mar 30th, 2007 10:34 AM

you have to run him into a wall

timrpgland Mar 30th, 2007 11:09 AM

I'll take some digi cam screenshots once I get mine back. Moved my systems around a bit.

Only got to play for one little session of Earthbound this work week. Hoping for a pretty open weekend to grind.

I think how goofy Earthbound is is what it turned me off when I first played it as a young teen. Years later it appealed to me more.

Zomboid Mar 30th, 2007 05:24 PM

Yep. The green ones in the desert on the way to fourside are harder to get but the ones in scaraba are easy cause they always run into pyramids and trees.

Black Flag Mar 30th, 2007 05:28 PM

first person to provide me a link to the scaraba music in Mp3 gets my infinite appreciation

that is easily some of the BEST MUSIC in any video game EVER (up there with teh golden saucer on ff7 or hell some made in mexico on guitar hero 1/2 ^___^)

im not sure if it's the fight music or the desert music, i just remember their being a really crunchy synth noise that always made me want to take a huge bong hit and start dancin

This is the scarabi music! I don't know if this is what you are looking for.

I have the whole album if anyone is interested. But I found that getting the actual music from the game music file is better. Go to Zophar's Domain to download their Earthbound soundtrack, you can also pick up a SNES music player. (I suggest Meridian Advance)

Esuohlim Mar 31st, 2007 02:18 AM

Sean Patrick O'Leary/O'Reilly/Finnegan

Zomboid Mar 31st, 2007 10:27 AM

I was gonna say that it'd be funny if his middle name was Shamus but then I read that it's not :(. So far our stereotypical names are pretty equal but I'm guessing you don't get as many old people asking if you're related to so and so on a regular basis.

How far in are you guys so far?

EisigerBiskuit Apr 1st, 2007 02:59 PM

I still have the mushroom on my head. This stopped me as a child, and it has stopped me now. No Gamefags.com please.

timrpgland Apr 1st, 2007 03:10 PM

Go to a hospital and talk to the old guy. He'll buy the mushroom off your head.

Esuohlim Apr 1st, 2007 03:40 PM

I usually spend time in the Master Belch factory area killing Foppys until my team is at least Lv 30 (those Foppys are so easy to beat and you get a ton of exp if you keep encountering six at once) so I'm still there and I'm about to kill Belch.

Oh shit sorry. I thought you knew how to get rid of it :O. That's one part of the game that I think they need to warn people about because yeah, it would be very annoying not ever knowing how to get rid of that.

EisigerBiskuit Apr 2nd, 2007 04:49 PM

I found a way around it a few hours after I said that. But still, when I first played it when I was like 11, the only way I could get around it was death and innevitably spazming into a hideous fit with the wall.

I already did that, girslygus. No appreciation for you!

Noob You might like this better

http://www.zophar.net/zsnes/spc/ebspc.rar

you download this and it's the SNES music file of Earthbound. Many of the songs will play in a seemless loop like it would in the game (where the mp3's eventually cut off).

http://www.zophar.net/utilities/spc.html

Here's a list of players that will play the file. I suggest Meridian Advance because it plays SNES, Genesis, and NES files all in one. You can also get a plugin for winamp here http://www.chipamp.org/ so that they will play on winamp.

Zomboid Apr 3rd, 2007 07:42 AM

Only 2 more "my sanctuary" locations to go :O

GADZOOKS Apr 3rd, 2007 05:13 PM

I'm at Moonside again and I am reminded why I stopped playing this game in the first place. I still think it's a good game even though Moonside makes me loopy.

Zomboid Apr 3rd, 2007 06:57 PM

Yeah, moonside is the one part of the game that I know is really cool and different, but annoys the shit outta me.

Esuohlim Apr 3rd, 2007 10:26 PM

Ugh, Moonside :(

The hardest enemies ever are the weird objects in the Fourside department store after Paula gets kidnapped. I'm never fully prepared for them :(

Girl Drink Drunk Apr 3rd, 2007 10:57 PM

I too shall play Earthbound (in ROM form)!

EisigerBiskuit Apr 4th, 2007 12:16 AM

You'll never feel the true experience we are feeling right now with the consoles we kept for over 19 years now.

I hate any enemy that blows up after you kill them and right now I keep running into them >:

Esuohlim Apr 4th, 2007 12:34 AM

I'm cool with them as long as the exploding enemy is the last one I beat because then I only lose about 15 HP :\
