    I hated wishbone as a kid.

    I’ll probably get lynched for this. I dloaded Earthbound. Played for 1/2 an hour and did not care for it. I’ll get back to it. I just don’t like the non fantasy feel. Maybe if I was a kid and this felt like an adventure I would have imagined it would be more enjoyable? Noah & I will be hunted down….

    I picked up Attack of the Friday Monster. Haven’t gotten a chance to play much but I love the aesthetic. Looking forward to your thoughts. I did really enjoy Damrey. The ending is crazy.

      I got the rope. :P I’ve actually heard this all my life. I just don’t understand what kind of person doesn’t love Earthbound. It’s got such amazing dialogue, original gameplay, and endless surprises. While I grew up reading stories of Merlin, Dragonlance, and the Hobbit… it was just refreshing to play in world that wasn’t quite what I expected.
