Ben Bizzle is an Earthbound fan. His friend James Hensiek is also an Earthbound fan. James has been diagnosed with cancer. When Ben found out about his friends diagnosis, he got in touch with Fangamer/Starman.net, who in turn got in touch with Earthbound/Mother creator Shigisato Itoi, who signed a copy of Earthbound to be auctioned off to support James through his treatment.
That auction is happening tomorrow as part of the Earthbound Bash, a weekend-long live stream event celebrating Earthbound and auctioning off Earthbound-related stuff for charity. In addition to the signed Earthbound cartridge for James, there's a variety of other Earthbound collectibles up for sale, with proceeds going towards Speak your Silence. There will be plenty of special appearances from members of the Mother/Earthbound fan community, including an live interview with Marcus Lindblom, Earthbound translator/localizer/ Pencil Eraser creator. Anthony Carboni will be conducting the interview, hot off his appearance on the live Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special.
If you're already an Earthbound fan, then there's obviously a lot for you to enjoy here. If you're among the many who have never checked out the game, or the hugely creative and supportive community that surrounds it, this is the perfect opportunity to find out more about it.

I pretty much disliked my whole time with it. More details in a comment if I get around to it.Jiraya Help me gather games for a new blog series - "Worst Sequels Ever"Niero Desu The backend code on the site so fun to read.

Pixie The Fairy Got out of Deadpool. It definitely was a movie with Deadpool in it. Some parents were shocked to learn it was also rated R for a reason.Sarah Jane farron So... gender and biology. All I'll say here is please respect people and their identities and don't try to push assumptions as fact. It doesn't need to be said to most here but denying people their identities is pretty harmful and very unpleasant.Niwannabe Any PS4 recommendations for a guy who can't afford PS+, since all I've got is Battlefront and there's next to nothing to do in that game?Niero Desu if you were experiencing lag with the dev site today, can you please try again? I moved some js around and am loading smaller avatars for people. some quickpost photos are scaled from gigantic raw uploads so we are optimizing those next to zip things upTerry 309 It's happening people... they're gonna kill off my favourite character... but he's taking someone else with him

It's pumping!Fuzunga Hmm... yeah, this seems right.Dreamweaver Would anyone be willing to help out dear ol' Dreamweaver with Destiny? Need a partner to tackle 7+ matches of Crimson Doubles for that 320 Light Ghost Shell. Will have to work on Comments of the Week first, but will be on later. I suck at the game though.CoilWhine I'm not digging Trine too much. It has really screwy controls.
