The reason I never tried to do this one is that I have never gotten past Fourside. I do believe we should give the achievements the same type of humor as the in-game text as well.

Aw, you were less than halfway through the game, dude, but if you have any ideas on how to rephrase achievements to match the game sense of humor, or have any achievement ideas, please let me know! http://www.retroachievements.org/viewtopic.php?t=250

Just joined... actually made my own list of "fantasy achievements" for EarthBound a year(ish) ago:http://crablord.com/articles/fantasyachievements/EarthboundAchievements.htmlAnd WHYYYYY only 195 points?

Because I'm still working on it? ;)Nice list btw!To see some examples of my completed work, please see (Chrono Trigger) (Shining Force II) (Final Fantasy 3/6) (Star Fox). You are welcome to help out, contribute ideas. This is a Work in Progress.

Quick update - The achievement list is complete, so now I'm just going through and fixing some things, and making slight changes. It's been a long couple of months with the new baby and college--Thanks everyone for your patience!!

Hopefully the result here is a fun quirky set that matches the quirky fun of the game. And don't forget to play Mother and Mother 3!

Having achievements for the unique weapons/armor is pretty sadistic.
22 Feb 2:14 2015
cirellio
@Chunky it's something to do if you feel like it on a rainy day. A reason to return to the game even if you've already beaten it. What good are achievements if it's all easy stuff?
17 Apr 2:52 2015
Icyfeather
Yeah those achievements are totally skill based and have a good strategy for obtaining them. /sarcasm1/128 odds are pretty shit
17 Apr 7:13 2015
ChunkyBeef
I wasn't really complaining, I just said it was sadistic. I mean, if you don't mind resetting, you can technically get 'em all in one run.

Fair enough.

Earthbound (U) [!] works? the achieve of talah rama and poo training dont work for me :/ pls help

There are two contradictory achievements with event photos. That makes it impossible to get all the achievements in one run
2 Sep 23:12 2017
jlinkfan012
Just copy your save before talking with dr andonuts on Saturn Valley. This way, you can finish the game with the fewest photos possible and then load your secondary save to get all the photos.

I absolutely love the Runaway 5 cheevo titles.

The achievements only work with the "Earthbound (USA).sfc" ROM. They do not load on any other ROM.

MrGauss
The Camera Shy Achievement is such a hassle. I'm playing the game for the first time and feel that going for it will detract so much from the experience...
