With WoW:Classic getting an August release I decided to get back into the RPG-mode and start my adventure of Earthbound anew. Managed to snag the 3ds version (had the WiiU one, but I just don't like using the system). I played it for a bit originally on the WiiU but dropped it and couldn't get back in it.

Restarted and taking more my time now, game is absolutely hilarious. Really weird humor and combat system, but I quite enjoy it. Nice to play something else for a change. Game is also...pretty freak'n hard. Died 3 times at the first boss already, sometimes even getting clapped by his minions on the way to him. Anyone else here play the game? Idea

Never played that one either, honestly I don't hear a lot about it as well. Most talk about Earthbound (mother II) and how much they want Mother III localized. So far it is really grindy though. Fun fact: if you're strong enough to OHKO a foe you'll auto win fights against them to speed the game up, which is pretty neat honestly.

I had this years ago and had no idea what was going on. The battles made no sense to me as a kid and this weird alien jumped me in the street once. The game was kinda creepy.

I have an untouched SNES mini and I believe EarthBound is one of the games on it.

Earthbound is on it yes! I think I know what you mean about the alien, that's pretty close to the intro. Combat is pretty straightforward but has weird descriptions. Like at the start you have a coward as party member and he'll just "Cower" or "use you as a shield", which are more jokes then anything else.

Game is seriously creepy yeah.

Going to the second town now, pretty interesting seeing how it goes forward. The grind is real but with more abilities it is getting easier.

I remember all kinds of weird messages. I think I had a girl and a dog on my team for some reason. I think at the start it made you name your whole family. I swear in battle it said the dog is barking and odd shit like that. Couldn't really make sense of it but was years ago so would probably be better now. That alien kicked my ass back then and I never played it again.

The game can be insanely random, found a pretty funny gamefaqs thread about a guy getting mauled by RNG: https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/boards/588301-earthbound/71180043

I just reached the desert, past where I got before. The combat is getting pretty interesting. Ness really is the hard hitter while Paula is the mage. Jeff seems pretty useless but he has the ability to repair items outside of battle to turn them into strong 'single use' items in bosses while also being able to 'spy' enemy stats.

It's a fun game, though I will also be glad once it's over. It was on my list to finish for nearly a decade now.
