    Music not a Problem for Eartbound

    well we all know about Earthbound and how nintendo never gave a thought about re-releasing it. many people wondered and speculated why and many people thought it to be about music licensing issues and such. However earthbound on the VC will be release with the ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK.

    1. that is great.
    2. why was it never re-released then?

    So they were just making up excuses and there was no legitimate reason for ignoring fans for years?

    Too much work to get around all of the legal issues. My guess is that this time, Nintendo will be doing a lot of work to get past those barriers. Because of how Earthbound bombed originally, I guess they just didn't think it was worth it.

    ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK?!?! OH YEAH!

    why? there is 3 reasons


    1. The Sky Runner song needs to be changed ( I don't know the difference here)
    2. The Chuck Berry battle song needs to be changed (hippie battle theme)
    3. The Dali’s Clock enemy name needs to be changed ( a REAL paint and name)

    there is a lot of terryfing similar to the USA from 1960. Like the KKK is BBB?

    I don't know if this was ever a legal issue for them. I don't really see how it could be but.

    Anytime someone mentions Earthbound, it's like it's talked about in quiet, awesome reverence. I've never even heard of it, and the pics don't really look that amazing. What is it about this game that makes it so amazing that people are going crazy about it?

    Lol. It sounds like the Star Spangled Banner being played by a drunk.

    Lol. I'm going to need a little more than that to go on if I'm going to invest my precious time and money into a 24 year old game.

    Haha, I suppose. I mean what can I tell you. You're the chosen one, a kid. It's generic in that sense and stays true to the turn based classic RPG combat. It has its quirks though. Instead of being a medieval type scene it is modern day (well for the late 90's). You run around towns, ride a bike when you're one character. You get to save a blues band from their money debt troubles. Instead of a sword you wield a baseball bat or a yoyo.

    You level up as per normal so that monsters give exp, the monsters are funny though. Instead of hellspawn and truly evil beings you'll fight new age retro hippies and stuff like a rabid dog. When you get exp instead of monsters awarding gold or coins or whatever your father will deposit money into a bank account for you where you can make transactions as long as you keep your ATM card on you.

    You can collect pieces of junk like a rusty spray can and during the nights when your characters are asleep one of them will fix them if he has the necessary items in his inventory. You can take buses from town to town and just solve problems.

    Even small things like sometimes your main character will feel homesick and he'll start not attacking in combat so you can either teleport (a spell you get later on) home or you can rush to a payphone, insert a buck and call your mom and she'll cheer you up.

    Instead of potions, you can actually dig around in the trash and find hamburgers to eat if you're too cheap to actually go to the burger shop and purchase some, you can also put condiments on the food and it will increase or decrease the amount of HP it will restore depending on what goes with what. You can also order pizzas to be delivered to where you are at, get a for sale sign and just use it as an item and customers will rush to where you are to purchase things to clear up your inventory. It was also one of the first games I saw with like a bank/storage idea.

    I could likely go on and just tell you everything about the game but these were some of the reason I loved this game and still do.

    So what's the status on this again? This year? or 2014? If I recall I don't think they actually give a time frame right? Looking for the skinny if anyone knows
