Currently doing another play-through of my favorite game of all time: Earthbound for the NES.

I didn't realize how much I missed playing this game regularly. It's truly a wonderful game. It's definitely the best RPG on the NES by far.

It's a shame it didn't get released in the USA at the time, as I'm sure it would've found it's own little niche market. To this day I still think that if it would've happened the Earthbound series would've been like Dragon Warrior on the NES: we would've gotten 3 or 4 more and they would've continued the story of Ninten and Co.

But still, things turned out good and we got Earthbound on the SNES and then Mother 3 on the GBA. The franchise did good and all the games were great and were released on good consoles. Can't ask for much more than that.

Oh, you're a fan of the Mother series? Cool!

Yes, absolutely. It's so many things I like all rolled into one. One of my favourite fiction tropes is "cute kidlike **** that gets increasingly weird" and that series follows along with that trope pretty well.

I haven't finished my playthrough of Mother 3 yet though because I lost my charger. I'm probably just going to order a new one because it's been months since I've seen it...

Took me a damn week and a half to get it, because Amazon chose some noob company with a host of complaints (like think 3x as much as any delivery company, and with less of a company history) to send it out... and then when they went to send out the replacement, they were like "jk out of stock". So I just got a refund and went to GameStop. It was $10 more, but I was sick of getting jerked around.

Yeah, I dunno what's up with that. Before they used UPS or just USPS but now for some reason they use couriers that are less reliable. Dudes can come by bike, car, drone, and at any time. It sucks, not as predictable as the other joints.

Just kidding, I actually really liked Origins. It was just riddled with so many bugs and glitches, at least on consoles. Don't know about PC.

Understandable. Have a brother who played it on console back when it first got released.

Other than the framerate dropping a bit during certain cinematic cutscenes, it works pretty smoothly so far.

Yeah it's apparently their new "thing", as of super recently in some areas. What makes matters worse is I'm like a bus away from Amazon HQ and close to at least two processing centers. It would be less hassle to actually pick up my item directly.
