Picking the brain of and eating pizza with Marcus Lindblom, the localization director of Earthbound. The man responsible for nearly every line of text we saw as English players. I don’t know if this is something I could explain to myself 10 years ago.
I really like this picture even though we are all kind of wretched looking and I look like I’m about to sneeze.
It’s been really hard to keep quiet about this one! We’re going to be holding a special charity auction on the last day of the EarthBound Bash, December 1, right after we beat the game.
The prize of this charity auction: a complete copy of EarthBound, with the cartridge autographed by the game’s creator, Shigesato Itoi!
The proceeds will go to benefit the original owner of the cartridge, James Hensiek, who was recently diagnosed with cancer. Fangamer worked with Ben Bizzle, a friend of James and current owner of the cart, to get it into Mr .Itoi’s hands for him to sign it. This came after Ben contacted us through Starmen.Net for help to make this auction for James as special as possible.
Watch the video above to hear more of James’ and Ben’s story, and to learn about how Mr. Itoi accidentally made this more special and charming than we could have imagined!
I need a new winter jacket. I have my heart set on this down jacket from North Face, but it’s $270….. I just have good taste…?
Soooooo, I’m having a SALE! I’m marking down the Berry Sproutlings to $275. That’s $100 off. (Foxglove is also marked down!) The sale starts NOW and will end in 24 HOURS* (or until I sell at least one)! Go go go!
