HA! Oh, Nintendo. That's so deliciously mean that I don't care that you probably made kids cry.
Especially since most of them probably assumed it was an unfortunate glitch, and played all the way back to Guygas only to have it happen AGAIN.
why did i just watch a video of a video game freezing up?
Anything the devs do within their own games to deter piracy, that does not damage or affect the outside hardware/software, is perfectly fine and NOT EVIL.
And I say that having not payed for the last 25 singleplayer offline games I've gotten

Well that sucks.
Also, been wondering for years: is the scenery in that final area designed by a proctologist who's just a little to into his work?
It's actually even meaner than this. Throughout the game game, Earthbound checks how much memory the game cart has. (copy carts typically have more than needed, so they could hold any game.) If the cart doesn't have the exact ammount of memory as an EB cart, the game messes with you. Enemies show up in safe areas, a lot more enemies show up in dangerous ones (enough to slow the game regularly, and they don't mind grouping up), and a few other things get in the way. If you DO manage to get through a harder, more frusterating Earthbound, this is the final check you're greeted with at the end boss. Brutal.
You can play the game that way if you want. There's a few screens of the increased spawn rate, the video I linked, and codes to type into an Emulator and Game Genie on SNES that will trick the game into thinking it's on a copy cart on this page....
I tried the code on an emulated copy- it didn't seem to work (there could be various reasons why, it'd seem)...I'd try it on the cart but I don't have it at the moment (if I recall correctly, its battery saves had already been nuked by a mishap with the debug menu, but I might be thinking of another game).
If I were an unassuming kid who somehow...uh...was totally unknowingly playing with a totally innocent cart copier, then got the "serious crime" message, I'd have pee'd myself.
The battles in this game could be brutal, particularly the last boss. Still, all of those huge groups of enemies before Giygas...if you could make it past the first five minutes of the game or the first few thousand Runaway Dogs and Spiteful Crows, your level surely would be pretty good. Not that it'd matter since you'd be toast after beating Heavily Armed Pokey.
I could never figure out how to play this game. Do you ever actually get to control the fights or does the game always just do everything by itself?
You can turn the auto-fight off or on. I always left it ON because of the novelty factor.
True, but this is the only one I know of that really hits you this hard. I mean, ouch. Second Tier of the final boss...
5 stars for trippy soundscape alone
"DAMN!" is an understatement.

-1 because the graphics and music didn't go crazy.
It would've been even better if there were some sarcastic, Earthbound-y joke made about HAHA YOU STOLE GAMEZ NO FUN 4 U
Spankety, spankety, spankety!
An anus monster with a little boy's head coming out of it.
Five stars for all the comments. -4 for a pointless video about something that only people who like cat videos would care about.
