I know this a great deal for so many fans but I'm really unfamiliar with that game. What does it make it so special? Why so many fans were claiming for it since Wii's VC? How does it stakes today? I'm willing to try it out but some old games had been a disappointment on the past, during Wii's VC time. Regards!

Haha, almost same reason here. I only know Ness from SSBB, but I see he has so much legacy I was intrigued.

Okay now everybody that was whining about Earthbound coming back on Virtual Console, now is the time for you to part ways with $10. You talked alot of noise when it wasn't out but Nintendo has made their move and brought it overseas and now it's time for you to Put Up or Shut Up. You want more support, put your money where your mouth is.

Bought it. Never played Earthbound before, so I'm excited to finally experience it. Played for about an hour earlier and I liked it a lot. I can tell it's going to have tons of charm to it.

Just bought it. I played it alittle when it was released. I remember my friend bought it and it came with scratch and sniff stickers. I want my stickers now lol

Never played this rpg before today. It is quite fun. Reminds me of paper mario on snes. I've only got as far as beating Frank and his robot.

Today is one epic special day. :D

For those who have not played the game, it's hard to describe what's so special about it, but a lot of it has to do with the game's feel, which mixes the grandeur of one adventure against an incredibly threatening evil, and the quirkiness and simplicity of its portrayal of American culture. It's quite a unique experience.

is this everywhere or US eshop only?

Is the game worth it? I know it costs a fortune to get an actual copy but $10 for a snes games is a bit expensive. I just picked up Dishonored for the same price and AC II for even less....

I'll get it, never played Earthbound in the past so getting it and playing it for the first time should be fun.

So how  many playing for the first time? I would like to see impressions and find out if the game still holds up after all these years.

I feel that I personally have grown out of the oldschool RPG era.  I still feel the nistolgia for them but, for example,  tried to play FF8... but could not stand the constant battles and never knowing where to go.  Back when I was 12 playing those games.... I had the time to run around for 2 weeks having no idea what to do.  Because they are selling Earthbound again, I have a feeling that I may need to buy it- but for what?  GodBless all those who enjoy those types of games,  I am happy for you.

The game does look hardcore though.  Never played it. :)

I'm having more fun playing this as it takes a lot of thinking to figure out where to go and what to do. You do have to interact with pretty much everyone to learn the secrets just like in a Zelda game. I finally got Paula out of jail last night after getting home late with dinner out with friends. I stayed up way too late but it become addicting at one point to keep powering up to get to that point. I was afraid if I stopped I'd forget the path to get back to Paula's town. She died along the way and I ended up bringing back her spirit. Very funny screen shots. This game has a lot of appealing qualities. Glad to have it now. I don't think I would have had the time to play it back it the mid 90s. This was totally worth 10 bucks.

Its a great game anybody that hasn't played it should definitely pick it up I certainly won't be re-buying for $10 though

This is a great game to try out for anyone who is not familiar with any of the Mother games. :)
