I'm not a huge RPG fan, but this is one game that I've wanted to play for a long time. Nice to see that we're finally getting it on VC.

Only wanted it because I couldn't have it. No longer want.

I'm sure I'll buy it and play about two hours of it, and I won't regret a dime of the purchase. Oh, nostalgia, how I love thee.

I literally shouted in happiness while watching the announcement. Now, my eyeballs are sweating.

Not a huge fan of Earthbound but I'll probably get the game just to prove a point.

And here you go Stache, we can use it for Epic Center later this year.

My excitement is only tempered by the fact that I don't have a Wii U and don't look to be able to get one any time soon.

Now I'll have to get a Wii U just so I can support this!

I have the cart, but I am willing to double-dip to prove that point.

I know it's a long shot, but I'm hoping if this does well...

You know.
