2011 The Year of Earthbound

If you want to read about how Earthbound has overlapped with my faith in God then check out my post here:

Through travel, birthdays, dating, engagement, marriage and now the expectation of my first baby- Earthbound keeps being brought to the surface in my life. In fact almost every month of 2011 I received some sort of Earthbound reminder...


Marked my last month to live in what seemed to be the "Deep Darkness" swamp (Cambodia).


My family and friends throw me an Earthbound stlye Birthday party!

I start dating Laura. During one of our first serious talks I tell her what any girl needs to hear before moving forward with an EB junkie; I tell her of my love for the mid 90s 16-bit game known as Earthbound. From that point on she knew to love me was to love Earthbound.

I go to Earth's version of Scaraba (Egypt) and see the pyramids.


I use Earthbound sprites to make my own “RPG profile” to help me keep up with my goals in life.

I propose to Laura. As an engagement gift she gives me an Earthbound Jigsaw puzzle! Thanks to viking011 at Deviant art for the permission to use his art for my gift.

Tiny Tower phone app Earthbound style!

I get married to Laura! During his speech, my best man takes my affection for the game to help illustrate my affection for my wife. Also I got to use viking011 picture again but this time for my groom's cake!

Laura and I move into our new house. As a symbolic gesture of beginning a new life, I paint a “text box” themed chalk board in my office similar to what you would see at the beginning of a new EB game!

It turns out Laura is pregnant! Many of my facebook friends ask if I am going to name him/her Ness. After seeing the sonogram of our child I can see how some theorists suggest that Giegue might have been a fetus...

My wife gets me a custom made Starman shirt packed in a Ness gift bag! Merry Christmas to me!
