Get your nostalgia flowing with this cartoon retelling of EarthBound photo
Get your nostalgia flowing with this cartoon retelling of EarthBound
by Darren Nakamura

Fans of EarthBound celebrated the 20th anniversary of its Japanese release a little over a month ago on August 27. Followers of the series are known for going above and beyond in celebrating it, so of course one would spend four years making this lovely, charming tribute.

The five-minute animation retells the story of Ness and his friends on their journey to save Eagleland from Giygas. So many little touches are in there that will bring a smile to EarthBound fans' faces. There is a Spiteful Crow carrying a cookie, Paula's teddy bear, a New Age Retro Hippie, the Runaway Five, Overcoming Shyness, homesickness, and more. The iconic scene of Paula praying during the final battle made me a little misty-eyed.

More information about the video and its creation can be found at Project PK Flash.

"Slow news day, huh?" someone typed into the comments bar, mouse hovering over the submit button. "What does this even have to do with videogames?" another was seconds away from chiming in. Many more followed suit, each and ...

What the hell did the Pokémon channel just upload?!

[Update: Hey look there's some kind of Slowpoke fishing web game associated with this.]

The Pokemon Japanese YouTube channel just uploaded this. What in the hell, Pokémon? Related to the "shocking" announcement that's coming up, perhaps?

Watching fish play Street Fighter II live is actually entertaining

First there was a fish playing Pokémon over a Twitch stream like it was a human or something, and now we've got two fish fighting each other in Super Street Fighter II Turbo. If you're new to this phenomenon, the tank...

Watch James Bond suck at GoldenEye 64

GoldenEye 64 will easily go down forever as one of the best first-person shooters of all time. The movie the game was based on was quite good too! Now what happens when Pierce Brosnan, star of GoldenEye, gets into a multipla...

What if the next Assassin's Creed went to the Stone Age?

From the makers of Super Mario Warfare and all those wonderful cosplay montages comes Assassin's Creed: AC/BC. What if the Assassin's series starred cavemen from the Stone Age? That's what Beat Down Boogie wanted to find out.  Oh of course there's DLC.

Admit it, you're a Yoshi ditcher

I've done it. You've done it. We've all done it. When you have to choose between Mario or Yoshi, it's always going to be Yoshi getting sacrificed for the greater good ... or for that damn Moon 3-Up x on the Cheese Bridge Area stage in Super Mario World.

Storytime with Commander Shepard
