The lights are on
Earthbound is finally coming to the Wii U's Virtual Console, but we refused to wait any longer to play Nintendo's quirky RPG classic again, so we dove into our vault and took it for a nostalgic spin.
Join three Earthbound fans (Jeff Cork, Kyle Hilliard, and Kimberley Wallace), and one person who just thought the game was 'okay' (Andrew Reiner), as they pick their favorite foods, find out a secret about Jeff Cork's past, and how best to take advantage of an AOL account in the nineties. Also, make sure to stick around after Earthbound for a segment we haven't done in awhile with a very strange game.
Check out more episodes at our Replay hub.

This game is easily one of my top 10 favorites, so it's really cool that you're doing a replay. Speaking of rare games, is there a chance for some sort of Panzer Dragoon Saga replay? :P
SUPER REPLAY SUPER REPLAY!
Fantastic job everyone! I loved Earthbound and had to look a long time for a old cartridge copy but finally found one years ago. ^_^
Great episode of Replay! I'm surprised this was chosen. I did really enjoy this game as a kid and teen. I haven't touched it in such a long time though. It was great seeing Kim geek out the entire time. Some great commentary on this one.
It was nice seeing the Reported segment again. These are always interesting. Now that Tingle game is strange, but seems oddly neat. I would most likely play this to completion if I got my hands on it.
Reiner, that night shot of ness leaving his house also reminded me of Ni No Kuni. I wonder if that coincidence is intentional? Probably not.
I finally have a chance to play this game now. :)
This was a great choice for a Replay. I have been wanting to see this game chosen as a Replay for awhile. This could be a good Super Replay but there are still so many other amazing games that I would like to see before it. I thought this was a hilarious group for this Replay, it was funny and very entertaining. The Reported game was also a fantastic choice. I remember when the game came out but it never made it over here. The gameplay looks odd but everything else seems interesting and fun.
Don't worry Kim, I think you're awesome. Both segments were great. It's always nice to see more Tingle :P
