Not to be an elitist pc jerk, but it really is best on PC. Some of the mods for it are amazing. My personal favorite was one that injected Aliens and Predators into the game. Let you play as a predator and hunt aliens, as well as do regular quests. Even had downed ships, Alien hives, and all sorts of cool weapons.

Though nowadays I get that it's hard for people to get into it due to its dated graphics and bizzare combat

A lot of people give morrowind shit because of
>Miss miss miss, WORDS WORDS WORDS, WALKING SIMULATOR
but for what it did, I still think it holds up today. Shit's immersive as fuck, even vanilla. Reading into the lore is always interesting and the quest lines are arguably good. Not to mention the side quests and how open the world is.
Not preparing, and not sticking with main skills
are the main reasons people don't "like" older rpgs. It all boils down to reading comprehension
>>
>>260204457
wait which bit is cancerous here?
I was stating that I'm glad that earthbound doesn't have the cancerous shit that other shitty jrpgs do, at least not to the same degree
it's unbelievable that people are mindless and dull enough to actually enjoy games with filler random battle bullshit, where every fight is the exact same thing, dealt with in the exact same way, without any skill involved

I love the whole series, but I honestly think the first Mother was the one that had me hooked the most. It didn't have a vast soundtrack like 2 or 3, and the gameplay was primitive, but I think it had the best characters and the few tunes it had are some of the most memorable in video game history. I sincerely hope they remake Mother 1 some day.

Eh, it was pretty much "what would an RPG in the city/town look like". Not much else is going on, just swapped names and shit. I guess it was strange in its own way, but that didn't go too far. At least an extra layer of something to consider in combat would have gone a long way. As it is, it aged terribly.

Such a simple tune, but it's beautiful, like so many things in this game. Looks like I'm going to be replaying some Earthbound here soon.

Still have my fingers crossed that we'll see Lucas for smash. I wish Paula could get in the game too.

somewhat stylistically neat but every time you get a new member on your team they are at the lowest level possible and they will immediately die everywhere you go unless you fucking grind and grind and grind
just like
read a walkthrough of it
http://walkthrough.starmen.net/earthbound0/
boom it has pictures so you basically see everything
I don't know why people ever play JRPGs when you accomplish the same thing by reading someone's playthru while listening to the music in like 1/10th the time
also take note that even the people who like the game agree that it's primitive and mainly enjoyable for the artistic style or whatever

I'll bite. It's a good game. It obviously has flaws, but the atmosphere and characters make up for any of that.

I'm not to sure what point you are trying to make there. I mean, if you like a certain type of game, you are gonna go out and play other games like it. It's that simple.
>>
>>260210393
Actually there are flaws in everything. I guess the flaws in Earthbound just didn't stick out to the people who enjoyed it.

Well, actually that's kind of obvious. But really though we all have our own tastes and it's cool that you don't like it. It'd be nice if you could just leave us to our thread and maybe you can make a thread about a game you like better.. but really I guess if you wanna stick around then that's cool too. No one's telling you what to do.

>>260210635
>>260210868
Awesome! I hope you like it lots. Just sit back, enjoy all the little things the game does and have fun.

>>260211083
I have to agree with this Anon. But for me it wasn't so much the story as it was the atmosphere, gameplay, visuals and music. I mean I really liked the story but dang those other things just took the cake.
>>
>>260210635
I like Ness and the Onett stage in SSB but I have to tell you the game is bad. Fair enough if you want to see for yourself though

>>260210868
No they don't. The gameplay was atrocious. As much as I liked the weirdness of the game for the first few hours, the gameplay made me turn it off and never play it again. Well I turned off the emulator, it never released in my territory

But if you like a jrpg, then you are predisposed to enjoy other jrpgs. Especially one that is an arguably decent jrpg such as earthbound.

>>260211563
That's a very nice painting. I loved Mother 1 with it's atmosphere and everything. Well, to be honest here, I didn't like it at first but once I got into it a little more everything just sort of came together and it became a masterpiece. The atmosphere was quite a bit different but still really similar to Earthbound. It was almost like Earthbound but without too much of the quirkiness and weird things going around, but in place of that it just sort of felt more "grand", if that makes sense.

Final Fantasy is several times more complex than Earthbound and it came out years earlier. EB was way behind the times at its release

There were, at the time of EB several JRPG series which were only anything alike due to using a turn based structure

You sound like someone who only played the game up until threed and just stopped. If you had played any further you would have seen how in depth the combat could get, with different shields, combat items, and dealing with large groups of enemies. Not claiming its combat was revolutionary, but it did a lot of things well.

I first played Earthbound/Mother 2 in 1997 when I was 11 because my cousin gave me her SNES and a copy of the game plus the guide. It was the first RPG I ever played and it completely changed how I saw video games. I realized then video games could be art. That doesn't excuse the current trend of overly cinematic games with no substance as far as gameplay goes.

Not really. Maybe in the early game (and by that I mean maybe the first 15 minutes).

But the way your HP bar slides when you get hit will become really important as you get more HP, because it means you can keep fighting even if you got a deadly blow, or you can have enough time to heal.

And there's also the PP (magic) management; I recommend you to actually use the healing items so that you can use the PP to damage your foes to kill them before they get a chance to hit you.

I was only disappointed that it was a lot more linear than Earthbound and had a lot less funny dialog. Still like it more than Earthbound though because of the rhythm fight system and the feels. I have to say though that I played it straight after Mother 2 without any hype/waiting in between.

I don't give a shit about Earthbound/mother at all.

Here's my beef, all these "indie developers" exist, but why can't any of them make a decent jrpg style game?

Why do people think that platformers are fun? They're not, they're just easier to shit out than a decent genre.

For the most part bosses don't really have a pattern, they just have a moveset and they'll use whatever they feel like using. The Frankling bot is one of the exceptions.

In the future, you'll guard when a character is low on health and you want to get them healed ASAP. Make sure you know your character's speed, as well, to know who can heal the quickest.

>Implying the combat doesn't get more intense
-The order of killing foes can matter because some may blow up on you when you murder them.
The tree itself is a fine 1st example of the game showing you some shit, by far the strongest foe there, able to wreak your shit in if given a chance, blows up on your face when killed. You have to murder shit around it 1st because if you don't you die from the blast most of the time. Foes around it could be doing shit like stealing PP, giving a status affect, and more. Now the tree being open to paralysis might be nice an all, but you might not have that when you 1st fight it.
Later on some foes take the whole blow up on you thing and go medic for the enemy team. By now you are a lot stronger yes, but you still might not want a bomb in your face. Still if you don't kill this thing fast enough you'll have to deal with a prolonged fight.
-Several foes can come into fights with auto shields on
It isn't so bad at 1st when they only have a shield of light, sure it is annoying but whatever. You can power through them. But then they can do some real horrible shit later.
A "black mage" type foe casting non stop fire on you and shit has a psychic power shield on, it also blows up on you when you beat it.

Really there is a lot more but meh.

The funny thing is, I've done a solo game with every character (read, use cheats and such to remove party, switch them out when needed)

I made it a goal not to level too much mind you but:
-diamond band is best arm band, sorry but full brian shock protection is so much better than a 10-30 extra defense.
-super bombs are awesome
-brain food lunch with salt is awesome

-Ness is still overall the easiest, but man Poo and him switch places a lot, no wonder they give him late. Some areas are harder for him by himself mind you, and shit like homesick can be a game over, but still. The fact that he can use some auto heal points others can't is nice as well (the game is programed to respond to him). Also he is the only one who's encounter system isn't messed up of course so you don't have to rethink about how you get into battles like you do with Paula, Jeff, and Poo (who are all different in this area, each of them actually). He has the easist end game overall of course. And man you really learn to love salt with brain food lunch with him by end game, it almost feels like it is cheating. Paraylsis is still a 1hko on so many and you learn to love it more.
-Poo, he can teleport out of Thread and nothing happens bad game wise, in fact you got to love teleport. Shields are a big help. Life up and not having to pack salt with brain food lunch is a huge help. Overall his game is quick, guy is awesome. Poo does have to juggle his equipment though, Bracer of King's removal of brainshock guard seems like a no brainer to not equip it, but that extra luck is very useful. Taking off the cloak of kings for an earth pendant gives full flash, fire, and freeze guard, but you lose 40 defense and 40 speed of course. Freeze lets him one shot a lot of horrible monsters as well that Ness would have loved to smash up. The sword of kings of course lets you do physical attacks with the guy some w/o having to rely on bombs/power shield (oh my god, that shield is a life saver for him).

I'm playing through EarthBound on the Wii U VC after I beat MOTHER about a month ago (the MOTHER 1+2 fan translation by Tomato), and I'm not sure what to say. I'm only in Twoson, but I don't know whether I like it more than MOTHER.

I mean, there's something I like about the simplicity of the first game. Enemies sometimes drop items, I can encounter enemies just by running back and forth, making grinding easier, and it's fairly easy to read all the dialogue in the game. But in EarthBound, there's just so much dialogue that I'm afraid of missing. There are a ton of items, some of which only have like a 1/100 chance of dropping from the enemy, and it just feels like there's so much to miss if I do something the wrong way.

I talked to this guy in Burglin Park who wanted to buy a For Sale Sign from me, but I didn't own one yet, so I bought it from the other guy, but when I tried talking to the first guy again, the option wouldn't come up to sell it to him anymore. Just what the heck did I miss?
>>
>>260233150
-Paula, you aren't beating mondo mole at 1st like Ness and Poo can (by para and by power shield), not for a while. trillionage sprout will be very luck based to beat but can happen though. Paula is fast, that will always save you. Paula has to be careful with items more than Ness and Poo though. For starters while she can restore her health still at least, Pray is wild, and not very useful except in battles that won't kill you (few and far between, 1/16 to 1/8 most of the time for hp restore isn't good), but it can come in handy if it doesn't want to kill you as well. Freeze 1 shots so many evil foes for her though. But man by end game you got to juggle some bombs and healing items around. However by end game as well you can laugh at foes like starman, who won't kill you because of a psychic shield but will certainly more than murder themselves. Oh and the magic fry pan if you can get it is awesome, makes her hp last longer than Jeff, lets her sometimes hit hard w/o having to use a bomb, and also leaves her standing with 1 hp a lot for the auto back up. The longer fights take with her is very bad, and if you run out of items you may have to retreat.

>>260233150

-Jeff, all will be hell until he can get his heavy bazooka, which makes item management so much easier (read he doesn't have to worry about running out as fast). Jeff overall is the hardest IMO. If you aren't trying to level up that much you'll have to be at level 50 or so before he can use it though. Jeff's hp sucker won't work if he is dropping to 0 hp, and while Jeff may have more HP than Paula his does drain faster (guts and that, plus again limited restore items). As an added kick Jeff doesn't even get an offense restore with magic butterflies (that 20 pp per time + spawn areas with them is pretty useful). Jeff's speed is very important as well. And since his speed is linked to bottle rockets working, which is linked to being able to protect yourself vs things like Flash, that can be hard. Jeff is like Paula in that he isn't beating mondo mole, but also will not win easily vs. even shit like the titantic ant. Really you may want to grind for a couple of bombs just to get out of Onett, that is how bad it can be. Your 1 big bottle rocket, yeah make it count man. Trillionage sprout isn't being done by him as well. The good thing with Jeff is, at least you only have to pack a few multi-bottle rockets to murder bosses in the end, but the trip there will be hell. Also I should point out that using teleport unless needed by story reasons for Jeff and Paula (read to get to winters when you have to go to Stonehenge base) was cheating in my book. Which really was bad when the world stopped linking together after Fourside. Had to use Escargo Express as well which really felt like cheating because you have to use Ness to get it but man, you can't throw away some things like fucking packs of bubble gum man. To be fair, I didn't use them in the lost underworld man.

So yeah, Jeff and Paula, a lot of extra planning was done to make sure they would win item wise.

I also want to say that I'm getting the impression that EarthBound is the most lighthearted game in the series. MOTHER feels more "realistic" than EarthBound, even if there was a bunch of weird stuff like Devil Cars or walking nooses. It had a bit of an ominous feeling at times, but overall it felt like an adventure to uncover the truth. EarthBound gives off this really surreal vibe, especially evident in some of the character designs (like Porky's mom) and dialogue.

From the 5 minutes I've had MOTHER 3 on, it feels a bit more grim in tone. Like, I don't know how to describe it, but it doesn't have that inherent surreal cheeriness that's present when I was playing EarthBound. It feels like it's more of a fictional world than a parody depiction of an existing place, and I think I kinda like that, it makes it feel a bit more natural than EarthBound.

Also, what does everyone prefer to call the series? I usually call it the MOTHER series, because at least it's more accurate than calling it the "EarthBound" series.
When I refer to MOTHER's localization that was never officially released, I say Earth Bound (with the space, which was the technical name). When I refer to the localized sequel to MOTHER, I say EarthBound, but when referring to the Japanese version, I say MOTHER 2. I always say MOTHER 3, never EarthBound 2 or something stupid like that. I also never say "EarthBound Zero". It's not like I'm going to call the first Fire Emblem game on the Famicom "Fire Emblem Negative Six".

Yeah, I call it the Mother series, too, but will refer to the second game as Earthbound. They're Mother, Earthbound and Mother 3 for me.

Mother 1, Earthbound, Mother 3
"Eathbound Zero and Earthbound 2" makes me want to vomit

Why suffer like this?

Because spending money on a franchise that has no future developments is bad business practice.

Nintendo released new figures of the series in Japan because of the anniversary
