Wii Warm Up: Give us Earthbound already

Seriously, how long have we been waiting for this? The ESRB rated the game for the Virtual Console back in May and we haven't heard anything since. Why is that? Who wants to download the game via Virtual Console as bad as we do?...

Wii Warm Up: VC 2008

There's been a lot of Virtual Console releases this year (been keeping up?), and we were wondering which were among your favorites? We've received Secret of Mana, Super Mario RPG, and River City Ransom, to name a few. So, which sit at the top of your list for this year? Sure, we were hoping we'd...

Show and Tell: One dedicated community

We've been talking a lot about Mother 3 recently, and for good reason: the fan community is one of the strongest around, and they function without even a scrap of official love. Still, they soldier on, translating games, and, even better for us in this space, they make things. Of course, a fan...

Mother 3 fan translation complete, ready for download

Mother 3 fan translation available this week

After almost two years of hard slog, Starmen.net's Mother 3 fan translation patch has finally been completed, and will be released at the end of this week ... a whole month ahead of schedule!

Earthbound cubeecraft is out of this world

Even with its ESRB rating, we can't help but be skeptical about Earthbound descending onto the Virtual Console. While we'd like nothing more, it seems too good to be true that Starmen.net's hard-fought battle to get the game on the VC would finally end in victory. As we've also mentioned, an ESRB...

The dirt on Cave Story DS, Cave Story-engraved DS

Praised by almost everyone who's played the freeware PC title, Cave Story is considered by many to be the pinnacle of the "Metroidvania" genre, a polished action platformer embellished with endearing characters and a catchy soundtrack. No matter how many times we're reminded of the fact, it...

The Joystiq Mother's Day Weekend 2008

Happy Mother's day! We were so happy to play ... by gaming hours on Earthbound on our dusty ol' Super Nintendo console. Wait ... wrong mother? Oh well. (Image credit: protozoider) Check out the highlights for today: Joystiquery Japanese hardware sales, April 28 - May 4: Mothers in gaming edition...

Wii Warm Up: Are you down with EarthBound?

Inspired by the profile of the insane EarthBound fan community Starmen.net, we thought we would ask our audience directly: Are you an EarthBound fan? If so, how did you come by your fandom? Did you get the SNES game at launch? Maybe you discovered the game later? Or did the constant Mother series...

A history of zealous Earthbound fandom

Members of the Mother series fan site Starmen.net may be celebrating now, with Earthbound recently rated on the ESRB's web site, but just getting to that tenuous victory (as Ys I & II can affirm, ESRB rating is not the same as a Virtual Console release) has been the culmination of years of...
