Happy Happy is Blue Blue



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




Happy Happy is Blue Blue is a weird little theme, but it fits the place. :D

Moles: a constant source of useful information.

::flex::

I love that about Earthbound. It's just so convenient.

As clearly stated on that banner over there!

GO HOME

Free-range happiness, grilled with cilantro.

Yeah that really explained the whole thing

SO I ASKED AGAIN

Hey I said yes get off my back

HAPPINESS, IS THAT SO MUCH TO ASK FOR?

How could I misunderstand that?

Hint hint

OF BLUE, THE ULTIMATE SHADE

Non-blue contaminants

Hahahahaha

In reality the postcard is totally worthless. I dumped it pretty quick.

YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY woah sorry

I'LL SEE THEM SOON <3 <3 <3 <3

Blue cow.

Badum ching

SOME FAMILY THIS IS

What a big blue room.

I'LL SHOW HIM SOME RESPECT. IN THE FACE.

AHA!

Sacrifice, high priestess, what is the deal here, I want some answers

Try it at home!

What an odd hospital.

WELL EVERYTHING SEEMS TO BE IN ORDER HERE

CULTIST!

Insane cultists!

I can't find it now and it's really bugging me, but once at Starmen.net they had this page that listed all the things that got changed between the english and japanese versions of Earthbound. It's driving me nuts that I can't find it, but one of the things was that the Happy Happy Cultists originally had HH on their forehead, and no puff at the end of their hat thingy. I guess they took the HH off cause it looked too crazy? I'm not sure.

MY SHIRT D:

Hahahahaha

YOU LISTENING OUT THERE?

Then painting said butts blue!

HMM, WHAT COULD IT BE.

Ooo!

Can be very useful.

I see stuff for Paaaulaaaa

Oooo

Woah, that's a lot for something I got for free.

That bracelet is so not cheap.

Best item name ever.

In general, gooooooood stuff.

Awesome.

Ooo

Hee hee.

Five point increase, not bad.

Hee hee.

Swarmed by Cultists. :O

I LAUGH AT YOUR PUNY PAINT ATTACK I'm picturing Ness going to the hotel all covered in blue paint.

I actually ended up leveling off the Cultists for a while since they give you good exp, don't do that much damage, and also call for other cultists. Convenient!

Woooo

I don't want anymore of your ripoff postcards lady

True enough, she follows you! But you can lose her pretty easy through trees or buildings, and once you enter a building or a battle she leaves.

That was a lame level if not for PSI Rockin Beta. WOOO.

Aaallriiiight.

Hey, there's that house I saw!

I still hate these guys. So annoying.

THERE YOU ARE PAULA JEEZ

I really like Paula's theme. I dunno, it's kind of...almost creepy, but not? It's hard to describe. Kind of ominous, but catchy and pretty at the same time. I suck at describing music.

I Believe In You
A version of Paula's Theme I downloaded ages ago
Paula Wanna Cracked Bat? from the Bound Together remix project. Wooo Trumpets!
And then The March on Paula, one of the extra Bound Together tracks

sup

THAT'S ME :B

Your destiny? Okay.

Paula could probably do it, what with the PSI Fire and such. Melt the bars down. Or freeze the bars then heat them, making them brittle! Thank you QFG4 for providing me with that random bit of trivia.

Well dang.

The Franklin Badge is awesome.

I like you Paula.

GODASJGUAHG SCREW YOU POKEY GO DIE IN A FIRE

Although imagining him with Cartman's voice does make him hilarious, you are right

Pokey-sama?

And what an honor it is.

I will kill you someday Pokey

Anyway the guys he sent at me were wusses, no big deal.

Always useful. Always a good idea to have someone hang onto this throughout the game. You never know.

Well let's go see this Carpainter dude

WOO that's a lotta cultists

I really thought that one was going to attack me but I guess not.

Why thank you, that was very thoughtful.

And he attacked me. WOO.

Hee hee

Good for you, little cult newbie.

And attacked me!

Hee hee.

What an odd threat.

Anyway, beat him and moving on

THANK YOU, RANDOM CULTIST

I like picturing the cultists just quietly puzzled.

My shirt is charcoal, that's BASICALLY black.

Cultists milling about

Not bad.

Okay enough messing with the cultists, let's move on

This is a philosophy that should be more widely adopted.

Okay, I totally forgot to do this, but remember way back in Onett that guy who said he had something to show Ness on the hill? Lier X. Agerate I think? Yeah, what he excavated was that golden statue there. And here it is again! It'd be more significant if I remembered to visit Lier X. Agerate but it totally slipped my mind. WOOPS.

Why would he need Ness's help? It looks like everything's pretty blue already.

I WILL NEVER SERVE EVIL

JK YOU DIE NOW LOL

Woooo Franklin Badge!

This battle is MUCH harder without the Badge. I'm not sure you can actually do it without it, unless you REALLY powerleveled like crazy beforehand.

Healing enemies are the worst. >(

Ness: WOULD EVERYONE STOP PAINTING ME BLUE

Anyway enough of that

Hahahaha YOU'RE A BIT LATE THERE

Painting things blue, making a crazy religion out of painting things blue, founding a town based on said crazy religion...

That was quick.

WOOPS

Alright, time to Escargo Express some stuff.

Thank you, thank you

Woah everyone went out to lunch at the same time

Oh you wacky cultists

DIE POKEY

Pokey will continue to be a thorn in my side, and god I hate you Pokey. I hate you so much.

IT'S NOT MY FAULT I'M HERE. EVERYONE ELSE IS CRAZY.

Figures. You know if you try to steal from the food stand, that guy will attack you? Heh.

IT'S STILL NOT BLUE you've got a fixation buddy

There we go.

PAINTING THINGS BLUE LEADS TO EVIIIL

HIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII <3

I dunno, it's kind of blue-tiful! Ha ha ha! Thank you tip your waitress

Who are you again?

Woooo!

Hahahahaha

I'M BUSY CALL ME LATER

I think she says the same thing no matter what you say. I think I said no, I can't remember.

A halfway smart guy with muscles and hair?

Like YOUR PARENTS

This is no joke.

Let me get my bear first

Woooooo

Yaay.

YOU'VE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME

:O

Thus the Spiteful Crows around here. But what's that sound?

DAN DAAAN

Paula just stares in amazement at the random man who just fell from the sky in front of them and is now taking their picture.

And away he goes!

Now to level Paula up and find out what those little steps are all about...
