Quick post this morning to publish a GameSpite Journal 9 piece that I somehow passed over: An interview with the creator of something called EarthBound Saga. I’m not entire sure how I feel about this whole thing. Dude seems to maybe take things a little too seriously considering he’s in his backyard making YouTube movies based on a video game. I’m not judging their work or anything; I just feel like there’s an inherent whimsy to EarthBound that doesn’t really come across here. Maybe I’ve been trolled?
Meanwhile, my latest weekend feature for 1UP is online as well, looking back at the Mega Man Battle Network games and attempting to scrutinize them in their proper context. Love them or hate them, they did at least push back Mega Man’s inevitable drift to irrelevance by several years.
