EXP Podcast #315: Earthbound Debrief, part 1

There's no place like Earthbound
The time has come!  Grab your baseball bats and and your hamburgers because it's time to play Earthbound.  We start our journey with some broad thoughts about this supremely strange game and make it to the Happy Happy Village before calling our dad and turning in for the night.  Playing along with us?  Don't hesitate to visit the comments and ward off your homesickness.

Show Notes:

- Runtime: 44 mins 43 secs
- Music by Brad Sucks


  1. I'd love to hear any thoughts you have on the music. It's such an eclectic mix of genres, moods, and all sorts of bizarre mixing; I think it fits perfectly with the rest of Earthbound's "WTF-is-happening" leanings.

    I recommend you check out some of the sampling used in some tracks (be warned the the accompanying images in the video constitute spoilers and hence should be kept from Jorge at all costs):

    Once you hear the Monty Python theme in the "choose your name" music, you can't unhear it.

  2. I had only heard about a couple of these! Thanks for posting! Has Itoi ever commented on the sampling?
