Cheapest EarthBound price

The cheapest I've ever seen a copy of EarthBound is $60. I'm serious.
I blame the economy.

I remember hearing a story about how someone grabbed a copy of EB for like, $3.50 at their local pawn shop or something like that.

(Now makes me look in the SNES section of retro game stores frantically. You never know...! >_>;)

Not EB, but I also recall PlayAsia selling Mother 3 for $15 back in like, 2007. It's going for about $50-70 now, which isn't as bad as EB but still. ;_;

These games must be really great if they're sold at 60$.

Please give me internets! So much less bulkier than those eggs.

Help spread the word about the word smorent! Definition: [smohrent] adj. fluffy. In a sentence: that bear is very smorent.

Hells yeah man.

Well, it's more of a rarity thing than the game being good, but still. I got Mother 3 for $60 and it was so worth it. (Then again, I can also understand a good 60%+ of the game without it being in English, so :?)

Omagosh I just found Mother 2 going for $18. It's the Japanese version, though. Anyone read kana? fdskdlghfewdsahkjdfasl.

EDIT: EarthBound fans need Rosetta Stone. :S 3:

OH SHIIIIIIT. I can read Japanese! Pretty well, too. I'm pretty awesome at vocabulary but my grammar is horrible. When I played through Mother 2 on the GBA I understood about... 60% of the game? I feel rather proud for getting some of the jokes. :V

I already have Mother 1+2, though, and lack a Super Famicom... then again the sound quality is way better on the SNES, ironically. :I

My SNES has the tabs broken all ready (lol because I jammed a NES game in it) so I could play. If only I could read Japanese.
