The SNES is arguably home to some of the best Japanese role-playing games ever made, but even among such revered company, Earthbound (known as Mother 2 in Japan) stands as one of the most memorable games released on the system. Here to help us discuss Shigesato Itoi’s masterpiece is guest host, Chris Miller. Before we get to the main event, we discuss The Adventures of Pip, a beautiful tribute to the 8-bit, 16-bit and 32-bit era that used to be. Closing the episode is our interview with Jeff Hansen, winner of the 1990 Nintendo World Championship. All this and more.
