I have seen people spend flipping great wadges of cash on ePay for a boxed SNES Earthbound. I guess it's reputation is deserved.
Mendon, I suggest watching this video in its entirety and judging for yourself. I've never played it for more than a few minutes personally, but the Happy Video Game Nerd paints a pretty clear picture of what it's all about. Maybe he hypes it up a little more than it's worth, but I can say I'm interested in playing it now (have been for a while actually, just haven't gotten around to it.. I think that will change when it releases on the Wii U).
