  EarthBound - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
EarthBound is set in the year "199X" in the small town of Onett, part of Eagleland.
One of the most unusual elements of EarthBound may be the fourth-wall-breaking inclusion of the player as an active participant within the story itself, which is in great contrast to the plots of other console RPGs that usually never reference the player behind the controller, let alone incorporate him or her into the story.
EarthBound follows the same basic plot as its predecessor, but Giygas ("Gyiyg" in the Japanese version) is the only returning character.

However, Earthbound introduces the interesting concept of "rolling" HP, where, for instance, if an enemy deals mortal damage to a character, you can still heal that ally the next round and prevent him/her from reaching zero life if you're fast enough.
Finally, Earthbound pretty well strikes the balance between easy and hard, and is fairly short, as well, taking anywhere from fifteen to twenty-five hours to complete.
Earthbound, in the end, is the RPG equivalent of one of those cheesy old science fiction movies.

 Lost Levels Online
However, EarthBound was not a localization of the first Mother title, but was instead a translation of Mother 2.
The EarthBound prototype expands this ending significantly by adding in character and subplot resolutions, a retrospective on every character that appeared in the game, and even an exclusive remix of a few different songs that plays during the credits.
And yet, despite all the documented facts concerning the differences between the prototype EarthBound, the original Japanese Mother, and the new version of Mother that was included in the GBA Mother 1+2 collection, some people still do not believe that there is enough evidence to show that the EarthBound prototype is legitimate.

 GamingWorld - X Clusive CGOTW: Earthbound (SNES)
Originating in Japan, Earthbound is actually the American version of Mother 2, originally released on the Super Famicom in Japan, and the sequel to Mother for the 8-bit Famicom.
As mentioned, Earthbound takes place in a “realistic” modern day setting and instead of using swords, shields and such, Ness and his companions will use baseball bats, yo-yos, and baseball caps.
Although it sounds as if Earthbound is just an RPG that takes place in a modern setting, it’s the game’s sense of humor that really sets it apart from the rest of the pack.

EarthBound continues to differentiate itself from the sea of today's RPG's because of its unique humour and unlikely characters.
These days, a used copy of EarthBound goes for the price it was when it was first released or possibly a bit more, but this is really worth all the money.

 IGN: EarthBound 64 Preview
Incidentally, EarthBound was thought to be one of the most important launch titles for Nintendo's oft-delayed add-on, the 64DD.
Although Nintendo confirmed the game's move to cart to the Japanese press, the EarthBound team is also working on an add-on disk that will give gamers the chance to revisit the lands of the cart RPG again and live through different quests and adventures.
The plot looks as off-beat as in the original EarthBound and involves plenty of mayhem caused by the evil Pig army, who try to enslave mankind with the help of their primitive machinery.

While in most RPGs the non-playable characters converse in regular prose, in Earthbound much of their dialogue is laced with humor.
While Earthbound is regarded as one of the greatest RPGs by those who have given it a chance and played through it, the majority of the gaming public doesn't regard it as such.

 EarthBound 64 - Simple English Wikipedia
Earthbound 64 (Japanese: Mother 3) was a game that was being made for the Nintendo 64 and then for the Nintendo 64DD, though the game was never sold.
A few years after, Nintendo said that they will make a similar game for the Game Boy Advance.
However, it is known that Earthbound 64 had a cowboy as one of the characters, and the pictures of the GBA Mother 3 also had a cowboy, so it seems that things were taken from the N64/64DD games.

There are three games in the Mother trilogy -- Earthbound is technically Mother 2 -- so the compilation could include the first two titles, the latest two titles (Mother 3 was released in Japan for GBA earlier this year), or all three titles.
Dubbed Earthbound in the West, the latest installment in the Mother series is currently Japan-only.
The groundbreaking RPG series is known as EarthBound in the West and follows a psychic boy out to save the world.

 King Crimson : Earthbound - Listen, Review and Buy at ARTISTdirect   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
The most obscure of the original King Crimson's LPs and the last to get reissued on CD, Earthbound is an anomaly in the group's output.
"Earthbound" moves through some funky rhythms and more scatting by Burrell, before it turns into a showcase for Fripp's pyrotechnics.
And then there's "Groon," a 15-minute expansion of the Crimson B-side highlighting each bandmember, but especially Wallace and Fripp, and works well even with a four-minute digression on the VCS3, which phases the sound of the group into some unusual and intermittently interesting patterns; it ends on a stunningly apocalyptic note from Fripp's guitar.

 Elephant Talk: Earthbound   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Earthbound is a piece of crap,with the exception of "Schizoid Man" (my favorite version).
"Earthbound" stands in such complete contrast with the previous album, "Islands"; play these two back-to-back for friends, and see if they believe that the same band was behind both.
"Earthbound" is so rough and raw, in terms of both music and sound quality, that at the time of its release could have only POSSIBLY made sense to people familiar with KC's history to that point - and clearly not all of THOSE folks, either.

I found Earthbound to be bland and was disappointed with the album as a whole.

 Half-Life: EarthBound for Half-Life - Mod DB
I made the only map that wasn't hideous, I made an animated sprite and a sound, did about half of another map that I never finished, and gave plenty of input that was ignored because it was resembled planning too much.
Sure it bothered me that hardly any of you even played EarthBound and that the project was in the wrong hands, and that you would try to set a demo of it to some System of a Down song (nothing could be less appropriate for EarthBound,) but your attitude sealed the deal.
After the first 3 days I tried to quit the team and just do freelance but was convinced to stay on, then later I just disappeared for months because you boiled my blood to the point that I'd rather abandon the project than tolerate you anymore, but then I actually came back again.
