hello first of all: happy holidays! i was playing earthbound today and it was really fun but then i decided to look at a speedrun of the game and i noticed something straight away. at the start of the game, you meet a cool alien called Buzz Buzz, and he follows you for a little while. you go to your neighbours house and he gets killed. what i noticed in this speedrun is that you can skip talking to Buzz Buzz as he’s dying and just continue/start your adventure. now, i’ve played this game like five or six times, and each time i think i’ve always talked to Buzz Buzz on his death bed. i’ve never even thought twice about it, i never knew it was skippable, this cool alien is about to die and every time i talked to him. i heard his last words. and the fact that you can ignore him and just leave the house and start your adventure never occurred to me.
