  1. Thanks a lot for the info man, I’m gonna go and try it out!

  2. Because I think of “Clash Of The Titans”, and the many times I quoted that like on the microwave show, and laugh.

  3. Jon, why do you always laugh when you read ‘blocked by the Kraken’? I don’t get it…

  4. Well you probably know this already but Earthbound is actually Mother 2 (Japanese title), so you could play Mother AKA Earthbound Zero on the NES. Or Mother 3, which is on the GBA (so very SNES-like). Both were Japanese language only, but there are fan translations available online. Alternatively, Contact on the DS is known for having a similar visual style and playful humour to Earthbound. If you’re dead set on playing a SNES game, all I can really think of for now is Gunple AKA Gunman’s Proof.

  5. Roe roe roe the boat?

  6. Jons right, there are next to no games like this for the SNES. But I thought I would take this chance to tell you about a couple of games I that grabbed me like this one here, and that would be Earthbound Zero for the NES (otherwise know as MOTHER 1). Super Mario RPG for SNES. Secret of Mana for SNES, and ughh Chrono Trigger (popular to say, but true). Outside of the SNES there’s a couple, but not at all in the same graphical style if that is what you care about.

  7. Jorrys the pack mule…

  8. Oh my apologies, I get the super nintendo, the nes and the nintendo 64 mixed up a lot.

  9. It isn’t. This is the Super Nintendo, as I’ve plainly stated.

  10. I’m surprised this is on the NES

  11. You certainly made that Kraken look like he was a chump.

  12. Tangoo looks like mr. T!

  13. You’re very welcome, thanks for watching.

  14. I’ll stop crying when you stop singing.

  15. Too bad, I already played the crap out of Earthbound right after I saw the first two episodes this LP, seeing you play it is enough of a replay for me :) Thanks by the way for all the effort you put into your PENIS, I really love it!!

  16. Well, Earthbound for starters…

    But no, this game is extremely unique, there aren’t many like it.

  17. Say Jon, do you know of any games like Earthbound for the SNES? I really enjoy this LP and if there’s a game that’s a lot like it then I would love to buy or download it.

  18. I’m really enjoying the Earthbound videos, thanks Jon. :)

  19. I don’t think I did, haha.

  20. Let’s hope you get that Sword of Kings.

  21. WikiBound is better.

  22. Yeah, I use it a bit later in the LP.

  23. I’m glad you enjoyed the video. Thanks for watching!

  24. Thanks! Glad you like it.

  25. Can’t Riley use teleportation 2.
