Episode 76 - Earthbound

31Aug

In this month's episode, Rich (singlebanana) and Shawn (GrayGhost81), are joined by good friend and RF Generation site Director, Adam (bickman2k) to discuss his favorite game of all time, Earthbound for the SNES. When this humorous and cute RPG first hi the shelves, it went virtually undetected by gamers; now, years later, it has become one of the most talked about and beloved games on the system.  We breakdown this title to see if the love is deserved, or if it's just another high-priced, scarce relic of bygone days. Before our gametalk, you'll want to tune in to the Concertcast, where we pick our Top 3 one-hit wonders whose amazing catalogs of music went virtually unnoticed. Be sure to log on to the forums to submit your picks.  Will Earthbound first time players, Shawn and Rich's lofty expectations, or is this one better left in the goody case?  Tune in to find out! 

As always, we are happy to hear your thoughts on the games we play on our discussion page (linked below). We will respond to your comments and are always happy to discuss the games in more detail.
