Citizens of Earth Proves Chasing Earthbound is Harder Than it Looks

Hardcore Gamer: If I were to say that I’m a fan of RPGs, I’d be lying. Rather, I’m a fan of Paper Mario and Persona 3. I’m a fan of Penny Arcade Adventures: On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness. But above all else, I’m a fan of Earthbound. I can’t think of a single game that charmed me more in my formative years than Earthbound; I even befriended a kid I didn’t like when that game came out to gain access to his copy. No game since has managed to be quite as surreal or trippy as Nintendo’s oddest RPG. Needless to say, when the first Citizens of Earth trailer dropped into my life, I was pretty excited.

I’ve been playing Citizens of Earth for the last week or so now, and after ten hours of playtime I don’t know if I’ll finish it.

I was going to get it but my friend git it and I didn't like what I saw much. Probably still get it just because Vita has nothing.

Their ( that developers) limitations are not humanities limitations.

* That is like me saying " Well It was hard for me to kick a 25 years field goal, which proves just how hard it is. "

NO.....your not just good....Other people CAN do it fine.

* Somebody else will get it right eventually.

It's not an easy game to live up to. Brilliant writing, music, and atmosphere. It was ahead of its time. Citizens of Earth is still a great game though.

As much as I want to like it, I can't bring myself to play citizens of earth for more than 30 minutes bursts. :/
