EarthBound

Made by HAL Laboratories/APE, released in 1995

That was a ZOMBIE'S LIFE.



Current Zar note: I did this LP in 2007! I left my write-up mostly unchanged.




Haha what an obscure reference. Well actually some of you might get that now. Heh.

I don't know why but I love how Pollyanna sounds on a piano.

ZOMBIIIIEEESSS

Urban Zombie: :B

BACK FROM WHENCE YE CAME, ZOMBIE

I wonder what that does?

Jeff, ten levels below Paula, has almost as much HP as her.

JEFF COME ON.

Ness: Jeff it's three am what are you doing

Jeff: GAH DON'T SNEAK UP ON ME LIKE THAT THIS IS VERY DELICATE ASJFASHGUHAG *jitters all over the table, knocks something over*

Paula: BOTH OF YOU GO TO SLEEP OR I START BUSTING HEADS

A lot of Jeff's weapons are secretly broken items in disguise.

...So does Jeff sleep on the floor or what? OH WAIT, HE DOESN'T SLEEP THAT'S RIGHT

No human child stew for you, Zombies!

Haha, sorry about that! No hard feelings, right? Please don't sue.

WOO

Eh, that's passable I suppose.

Why can't you go up levels like Ness, Jeff? >(

Praying for the heck of it. Wooo.

Haha, what an even number. I swear I didn't tamper with it to get it this way, I just noticed while I was picking up stuff for Jeff.

This does make a good difference.

Okay, NOW apparently I went in the tent.

What did this guy DO?

It's that boy who's running around out front's father! :O

IT'S A HIGHLY ADVANCED TECHNOLOGICAL MARVEL THANK YOU

Looks like it's up to us, men!

WOO!

FRICK

WOO!

Useful if you're up against a whole lot of enemies with PP, like say...Fobbies. More on them as we get there.

Meaning they can only use PSI attacks, if they've got em. Can be very useful against certain bosses.

Otherwise you waste a turn. Frick.

That's it, screw praying.

HEY THEY SPECIFICALLY SAID NO PITCHING TENTS IN THIS AREA

bleeargh

Eh, close enough.

OH NO

Yeah this actually was just as easy as I make it look here. AM I OVERLEVELED? PERHAPS JUST A TAD. I remember having trouble with Boogey Tent back in the day. You can see that Jeff's Big Bottle Rocket here finished off the battle. OH JEFF, I LOVE YOU AND YOUR BOTTLE ROCKETS.

AHA

Yeah you better run

Fly honey you say?

THIS WILL DEFINITELY BE USEFUL YES

OH YEAH HI

I think we have a solution to our problem with the zombies!

Oh yeah, I didn't mention this before, but whenever someone runs up to you (like Mach Pizza or the Escargo Express) to give you something, it plays special music.

Delivery!
And from the Bound Together remix project, Special Delivery!

I love how I also managed to completely cover up the pizza guy here. GO ME.

NO WONDER NO ONE BUYS YOUR PIZZA, YOU LAZY LAYABOUTS

Zombie paper, now available at your local supermarket

ALRIGHT LET'S DO THIS

And then I went to the hotel and went to sleep, but there won't be a screencap showing that for some reason.

Zombies: :B?

HEY GUESS WHERE I CAN GO NOW

Before they fell victim to THE ZOMBIE PAPER

ZOMBIE SYMPATHIZER

I was just about to say

Wow look at all the Farrah Fawcett posters zombies

Just don't get too close, duh

YOU'RE A TRUE AMERICAN HERO GOOD SIR

Zombie: I'm not talking to you. >(

I like imagining the zombie putting air quotes after that.

THAT'S NOT FUNNY I'M SUING

:O

Hee hee more air quoting

This one seems oddly resigned/forlorn.

Hehehe

IT WAS A DIRTY TRICK

The zombie with the laughing face!

You'll find it someday kid

Pfff lame

NEVERMIND

Can be useful, and two shots helps you out a bit in hitting enemies.

LET'S CHECK THIS BABY OUT

So glowy and neon. :O

A COFFIN!!!!

Hahahahahaha. I just love how excited it is. TAAAAADAAAAAAAHHH! But skip sandwich pffff.

Teamin up on me, eh?

Nice. Paula's getting this.

Tiny green pile of... stuff.

That was an odd conversation.

Mini Barf: D:

Oh I missed this, it burped out some stinky gas or something and made everyone cry. You jerk, now I have to use items or PSI.

WELL, THAT WAS SIMPLE ENOUGH

As a kid I always thought fly honey would taste kind of good, just because Belch loved it so much. I apparently did not consider anything past the "honey" part of it. :B

So what's beyond the small path? WE'LL FIND OUT NEXT TIME. We are so close to my favorite place in the entire game I can almost taste it.

And just for fun, a little jazzy mix of the File Select music and a pretty neat version of the Happy Happy Village music before it goes back to normal. Speaking of Happy Happyists...

Also, this is possibly the most adorable little Earthbound flash movie I've ever seen. I'VE BEEN WATCHING IT OVER AND OVER LIKE FIFTY TIMES NOW AND IT'S JUST SO CUTE AND HAPPY AND IT EVEN HAS THE PHOTOGUY IN IT AND AAAA
