If any of you are thinking about it: get it. It’s a no-brainer.
And for 80% of the plebs that comment on this site. It’s a snes game.
If you think you know more about videogames than 80% of the people in this site just because you know Earthbound is a SNES game, you need to go back to /v/.
Pleb number 1
I revolutionized the word pleb
Call me pleb number 2. Better a “pleb” than someone who name calls a group of folks, knowing most of this site is well aware of Earthbound. But if it makes ya feel smarter?
I’m such a dumbass pleb that can’t understand the appeal of 16-bit game
I dunno, looks like DQ ripoff in more modern setting…………
It’s way better than any DQ. Also, you’re like 20 years late.
You do realise DQ was inspired by this game?
Kirby: Nightmare in Dreamland- neat. I already own it (for the gba), but I’d offer my recommendation for that title. It is, perhaps, the 3rd best Kirby game (Kirby SuperStar Ultra being #1, and Crystal Shards being #2).
And EarthBound is a classic too. If you like classic Final Fantasy or Dragon Quest, try this game out.
I’ve yet to pick Earthbound up yet, so this will be a no brainer for me! Awesome offer.
Ironically, EarthBound (mind the capitalization or you’re not worthy of this experience) is one of the few VC games that are worth full price and more.
well that’s nice…
Why only in Europe?…-_-
For me….defintley one of the best RPGs of all time…and it is still is underated…which I think is good…young kids these days wouldnt understand this game..
A noteworthy post, special thanks from a huge games fan!.
