DIY EarthBound Poster Replacement
Many readers have sent in news about a new album by brentalfloss that includes an EarthBound track – here’s an e-mail from Anders about it:
On the subject of recent Earthbound-related content done by YouTubers (The Completionist and Did You Know Gaming) I felt it might be relevant to show you that brentalfloss has done a medley of Earthbound tunes on his new album Flossophy, and currently it’s the only song on that album that can be streamed for free on bandcamp: LINK
You can also hear the EarthBound track here:
Great stuff! I really, really like it See the whole album here!
A while back, an EarthBound fan from Chile e-mailed me about a video project:
My name is Tomi and I’m from Chile. Sorry if my english is not the best, but you know, spanish is my main language, haha.
Well. Me and some friends, we have a project, a youtube channel called
Low Definition. Our last project inside this channel is “Creadores”
(Creators), and is about game designers, game directors, game producers,
etc. In the last episode, the second episode of “Creadores”, we talked
about Shigesato Itoi.
Basically, I want more people to know about our project, and, as fans of
Shigesato Itoi, I really want more people to know about our love for
Earthbound and Shigesato Itoi. That’s why I wanted to contact you. I
know of Earthbound Central and your great work. And I want to ask you…
if we make subtitles of our video, english subtitles, there’s a
posibility of appear in your blog as a New/entry?
In Chile lives a lots of Earthbound’s fans, a lots. I want more people
outside Chile to know about us, the chilean fans. If you can help us in
some way, that’d be awesome.
It sounded cool to me, so Tomi got some English translations added to the video, which you can now check out here or below!
Thanks for the hard work! And it’s great that Chile has such dedicated fans
Gapzacho sent this e-mail in about the EarthBound maps in Minecraft project:
Hey Mato! A while back I sent you an email about our EarthBound in Minecraft project we were doing, and now that it’s very near to completion, we made a trailer video showcasing some areas of the map! If you’re interested in the trailer, it’s here:
And our project thread is at: LINK
As of a release date, we’re waiting for the new 1.8 update to come out with the invisible wall blocks. Thanks for reading!
All I can say is that this is very wow
Octocactus and a few other readers sent in this news, thanks!
There’s this Youtuber called the Completionist, who reviews games by completing them all the way through, one hundred percent, and gives them a rating based on that. His most recent episode is about Earthbound. It’s not up on Youtube yet, but it IS available on NormalBoots.
You can see the video here!
A new Did You Know Gaming video was just released, and this episode is about EarthBound! This episode also features chuggaaconroy, who has helped introduce so many people to the MOTHER/EarthBound games that it still boggles my mind
There’s a part 2 to this video too! See it here!
So much of the info here is scattered across my hundreds (thousands?) of EarthBound Central posts, so I’m glad that a bunch of it has been condensed into a nice and simple video format. I actually haven’t watched Part 2 yet, so I better do that now!
With the incredible popularity of the Twitch Plays Pokemon thing going on right now, it was only a matter of time until Twitch played every other game too Including Twitch Plays EarthBound!
There’ve actually been a few attempts at Twitch Plays EarthBounds, so I’m not 100% sure which is the farthest or which is the most popular. But this one by SgtFuzzz seems to be the one people are sharing the most right now, so give it a look if you’re interested!
Some interesting problems that might develop if they haven’t already – calling your dad and telling him you’re done playing the game, as well as the 3 minutes at the water fall thing. There are problem some more trouble spots too, so if any pop up during the game share them in the comments here!
The past few weeks and months have been filled with news about a game called Flappy Bird. The whole thing’s been a crazy story that eventually resulted in the game’s creator taking the game down.
The theme of a recent game development jam was to make a Flappy Bird-like game, and it looks like a fellow named Cory Martin made an EarthBound-themed one: FlapBound!
Until now I’ve never even played Flappy Bird or even any of its hundreds of clones, but I had to check this one out I really like the graphics, and the background music’s pretty cool too! Good job!
A reader named Pete sent this in a while back:
Hey Mato hows it going? There’s this criminally underrated VGM guitarist on youtube named Swiggles1987, and he’s a huge Mother fan, so he decided to make an album of Earthbound songs redone in a really cool jazz/blues style. The first two songs that he released are really good. I say it’s worth a look and maybe you could spread the word to fellow Earthbound fansa about it. Thanks for all the work that you do!
Here are the available tracks:
And here’s a video that includes some info about the album too:
They’re some really great tunes, give ‘em a listen!
A few months ago at the EarthBound Bash, fans got a sneak peek at Ridgway Films’ latest live-action EarthBound episode. Well, the episode came out just a few weeks ago, so have a look!
The amount of work and passion in this project continues to stun me! And somehow the cameos by a certain Reid Young and pals don’t surprise me at all
Over the years I’ve posted some real-life Peanut Cheese Bars, but here’s one from a really neat site I recently discovered called Moogle Pie:
Here’s a quick description of this Peanut Cheese Bar:
A Peanut Cheese Bar is also a treat Ness and the gang enjoy. However, before you take the bars name at face value, I must remind you that cheese can be sweet, ie cheesecake. Its not a gross cheddar cheese concoction (Although I’ve also seen that cheese and peanut butter sandwiches are enjoyed by Americans). So to pay my respect to a game I love, I made Peanut “Cheese” Bars myself. These feature a pretzel crust and a frozen peanut butter cheesecake filling. Enjoy!
I dunno about anyone else, but the idea to go with cheesecake definitely makes it sound more appealing
For more info and the whole recipe, see here!
- EBisumaru: Sixth comment and I still think that music is really math at its core
- Jason: Just shut up about comment numbers and post about the music!
- Animegame97: Failed
- Animegame97: 11 for realz. That was funny xD
- Zipperz: I think he did not turn blue; the reason I say this is because Pokey had some kind of malice in his heart so powerful that he did not need...
