EarthBound

Made by HAL Laboratories/APE, released in 1995

Into the Pyramid



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




Desert music! Kind of a mellow tune. I don't think there are any remixes of this. :O

WOO PALETTE SWAPS WOO

Well that's annoying.

There, see that little red bug? It's an upgrade of the Criminal Caterpillar, and it gives you a ton of experience. SO I spent some time here just leveling in the desert, but I'll skip most of it for you.

WOO

Poor Poo, still lagging behind.

:F

Jeff's stat growth is still lackluster, if you're wondering.

Ooo, there we go.

This can be useful, provided you use it against the right enemy. ::cough hasn't screwed this up herself sometimes cough::

These things are so frigging annoying. They're just hard to hit.

OW. SCREW YOU.

Ness continues to tank away merrily.

Ooo.

Now we're talking! I think Poo may be the only one to learn this. Or at least, he learns it earlier. I DUNNO IT'S BEEN A WHILE OKAY I CAN'T REMEMBER

Poo learns stuff fast, come to think of it. He's what, ten levels behind Paula? But this is a PK shield so that's kinda different.

CAREFUL NOT TO REFLECT YOUR OWN ATTACKS ON YOURSELF OR ANYTHING cough

Ooo, nice.

Anyway, enough of that for now. Hey, a Hint Guy!

PFF I DON'T NEED YOUR HELP.

I'M NOT PAYING THAT MUCH

I'LL TAKE MY BUSINESS ELSEWHERE

Thank you Ness. Ooo, a new PK Flash.

This can be surprisingly useful.

Hang up! Hang up!

Do you remember that bit of paper we got at the museum in...Summers, was it? DANCE IN FRONT OF THE SPHINX!

DANCE!

wtf why won't you open.

Oh there we go.

WHAT'S THAT SOUND

HELLO AGAIN PHOTOGUY!

Ness: :D

Everyone else: GOD IT'S TOO HOT FOR THIS NESS CAN WE JUST GO

Oh Photoguy, you'll find me anywhere.

In we go! Pyramid Music

The hieroglyphs on the walls will come to life and attack you. I remember being very frustrated by this place, mostly because it's long and I always ended up running out of items or just being exhausted by the time I got to the end of it. It wasn't that bad this time, but then again I overleveled like crazy so there you go.

GASP

Ness: :D

Paula: What what IT'S ON YOUR FACE NESS AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

Ness: :D

These things poison you. Annoyiiiiing.

Paula: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

Oh pfft.

These guys are annoying. They hit pretty hard. I think I was willing to use a bit of PSI to get rid of them, since PSI Freeze hit them pretty good.

I love you so much, Jeff.

OW

Hahaha I have been carrying it around all this time, WHY NOT SEE WHAT IT DOES

Well that was pretty lame.

Hahahahahahaha

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ARACHNID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hmm, we're getting somewhere.

We're going to move this sucker y/y

I don't think that's really a present per se.

Huh. Okay.

OW screw your PSI powers.

Although these are really disjointed, when I took them I'd been playing nonstop for like...hours. This is what, the fourth warning I got from Dad at this point?

Hmm!

JEFF COME ON.

You guys are just annoying.

Good stuff.

Given the shields she gets, it's useful if she's fast.

Not bad, I guess.

That's not good.

Speed? Well actually that's not bad.

I remember this guy being really annoying in my older games, mostly cause I was totally exhausted by the time I got to him and didn't have the items or PSI to really use my powerful attacks. Seeing how I blazed through the Pyramid this time, LET'S SEE HOW I DO

WOOPS.

Well, that was easy enough! On to the spoils.

HMM, WHAT'S THAT ON THE FLOOR?

Oooo this thing is awesome. I am totally keeping it.

I WONDER WHO IT COULD HAVE BEEN

Ness: ...:D ::shoves Jeff on the switch::

Jeff: HEY

Ness: LET'S GO GUYS

Jeff: HEY!

I think I know what it is!

Frigging Shattered Men. ARGH ALL THE ENEMIES IN THE PYRAMID ARE ANNOYING

Frigging PSI attacks.

There we go! I'm going to jump down that hole so bad.

Well after I GET RID OF THIS THING

BY JOVE I THINK WE'VE FOUND IT

YOU KNOW WHAT I CAME ALL THIS WAY, I THINK I WILL.

HURRAY

Hey, a PK Butterfly!

Ooo! Dang, I didn't have to spend all that money in Scaraba on three of them. Ah well.

Moving alooong

ARGH

Amazing!

Hmm, not bad.

HURRAY THANK GOD

Hey it's...that guy!

NO!!!!

BUT HE'LL GET EVEN FURTHER BEHIND AND NO NOOOOO

DON'T GO POO NOOOOOO

DARN IT!!!

Next up, what secrets does the rest of the desert hold?
