Hey all, I was on my way to checking my account on the Starman.net forums, and on the home page, I got the news that, after
Little known fact about me, I have a huge place in my heart for the EarthBound/Mother series. I first played the game via ZSNES emulator about 2 years ago and that was when my love affair with this frequently overlooked series was born. The story, the quirky charm, the contemporary setting, and one of the most disturbing boss battles in game history, all coming together into one plastic package? What could've been better(well, egg sandwiches are a teensy bit better, but I digress)? But what about you? How do you feel about this milestone?
And finally, with the re-release of this game to western shores, I hope that this game creates new fans of the series, and for the veteran fans, a trip down memory lane to relive old adventures.
Oh, almost forgot. Here's all the related links:

Heck, I'll even throw in an official press release for good measure
