UPDATE [8/26/13]: With a week 3 of Earthbound under our belts, we've proposed a few questions (located on the fourth slide) for those of you who've been playing along with us. Check 'em out, and provide your answers in the comments below.
Note:Because this is a longer game, we'll be extending this particular Game Club until midway through September.

Earthbound, on the other hand, tasks four cheerful kids, each possessing psychic abilities, with saving the world from aliens. The only game of the Mother series to see a North American release, Earthbound's known for its hilariously heartwarming adventure--and thanks to its recent port to the Wii U's virtual console, we thought it nigh time to finally play through (or, perhaps, revisit) this SNES classic.
