Literally doubles the experience.

With it you can pretty much steamroll through the entire game. Without it, you have to grind a shit load. Pick your poison.

>>263542419
>How am I supposed to go on?
That's what I'm thinking, but for a different reason.

Play Mother 1 with the Easy Ring in Mother 1+2. Don't feel like a casual, it doesn't actually lower the difficulty but only makes it less tedious, you don't have to grind and the random encounter rate is tolerable. With it, I'd say it's better than Earthbound and second only to Mother 3.

There's only three games I think that have achieved anything close to the greatest/most highly regarded art works of film and literature

EB and M3 are two of them. That's overrating them but from an analytical perspective there is so much going on behind these games that is portrayed so sincerely and subtly that I couldn't help but be utterly immersed, surprised and delighted during my playthroughs.

Plan on playing through Mother 1 now when I get the time.

I saw on Starmen there's romhacks, are the halloween ones good? Was thinking of playing them next month.

He doesn't totally man up, he just learns that even if he's scared he's gotta do what he has to do. For the most part, he still kept to himself besides his few friends.
>>
>>263550878
Possibly

Even amongst the Team Silent SH games they all felt different from each other. SH 1's more pulpy horror, SH 2's much more psychological. The gameplay definitely takes a backseat to the storytelling and atmosphere though.

Either way the story in it's on an entirely different level from SH 1, 3 and 4, so I'd give it a shot. Controls might be clunky if you're not used to traditional survival horror though. The camera is MUCH more dynamic and better than early RE games.
>>
>>263549353
You pique my interest. Because when something is this overhyped, I feel like I am going to encounter disappointment. I assume they are good but do they really make everything else pointless? Like seriously? Like I love the Legacy of Kain series and Devil May Cry 3 and think they are amazing, but never would I think they were the final thing I'd ever play that was good.
>>
>>263551776
It's very easy to overhype the games, but honestly the biggest possibly only problem I really could find with them is that Earthbound's a little unbalanced early on so you should grind a few levels every now and then.

If you don't like "old" JRPGs, then you probably won't like them.

THe thing is if you don't mind old JRPG mechanics then both EB and Mother 3 benefit from being truly unique games. The Mother series is really different from almost everything else out there.

the problem is I always feel like i have to find and get every little thing, so I look through a walkthrough before each new area and such. It adds a bit more of stress to the play through I guess. Should I just play blindly? I feel like I'll miss shit and I don't know if I can handle that

Don't use a guide the only thing you'll need help with is the final battle, everything else is directly told through the game, and the levels are never convoluted to the point it's hard to find stuff

Grinding also only helps, so if you feel aneed to backtrack that is far from a bad thing, it's very helpful to just suck it up and explore on your own, fighting whatever comes your way

I think it's neat too because one of your main characters is much more effective when you rely on items. At least of the "old" style JRPG's i've played I've never seen anything like that.

It's like Dragon Quest but with some unique quirks. Poo not being able to use normal food or protective gear comes to mind as well.

My recent replay of Earthbound has made me value Ness a whole lot more as a vidya main character. He's amazing.
>>
>>263554812

It's hard to explain, it's almost treat the game like it's their religion.

They act like the game is a messenger of love and peace, and the deepest thing in the world.

There's fanfiction, RPing, and fan comics where they try their hardest to be 100% true to the story, and create their own interpretations of various events. It kinda makes me afraid Mother 4 will be any good.

Also they have a large hatred of Reggie because they assume he's too blame for Mother 3 not being released here.

But one of the most annoying things is their love of playing victim, they act like Mother/Earthbound is the most underrated series on the planet, and almost come off as thinking we'd achieve world peace if everyone played it.
>>
>>263557579
I have immense faith in Mother 4, at least in terms of it being a quirky and somewhat memorable RPG adventure. I doubt they could make it emotionally engaging, however the people invovled have seemed wholly open to criticism, objective review. When I heard they changed the name of the main protag and the guy based on it wished them well while stepping back that impressed me.

I agree.

I learned about him during N64 Smash, and he was my fav to play as in Melee, but I always just took him as "kid that saves the world."

When homesickness kicked in on my recent first-time palythrough of Earthbound I thought it was incredible. It's such a simple idea, it's just a status effect, but the dialogue that accompanies it in battle is great.

Then by the time you get to Lumine Hall, I was blown away. From there forward the game re-established that he's far away from home and like any kid would be scared of what's around the corner, even with the courage/strength to fight it. It's such a simple thing that adds much more depth to the character and story.

I felt that Mother 3 played everything up better. The change in Tazmilly, Thunder Tower, and New Pork City were all great.

Plus if you wanted to look at the bigger picture, I think that an island that is inhabited by war survivors that blanked their memory being invaded by an dimension-travelling "kid" and his army is better than Giygas' second invasion and even the first Giygas invasion and his backstory in Mother 1.

The reason you think the games are perfect is because they touch on resonant themes, OP. And because its a game that primarily made with passion and emotion rather than profit in mind. The characters and world are incredibly charming and relatable, and you'd be hard pressed to find anything as resonant as the mother trilogy. The Mother trilogy is probably the game that relies most on its director- without Itoi, the game loses so much of what makes it good. This is why Mother 4 has such a gigantic fucking hill to climb, as they have to match Itoi the god.

Best of luck, Mother 4 team. I know you're reading this thread. I know your game comes out in 3 months, supposedly. I know you can do it, too. You just need to tap into your human and quirky side.

I leave this thread with my all time favorite Mother remix.

It's similar in gameplay style to Mother, except more grinding (which is optional, if you play the GBA port).

Speaking of which, I heavily recommend the GBA port as well. You just need the fan translation patch. It's better in most ways and makes it a lot easier to get into from Earthbound/Mother 3.

It's not that bad to be honest. I still go there every now and then, and heck they're a lot better than other forums from what I've seen. Really though I think the game just means a whole lot to people and a lot of people interpret it as having lots of uplifting morals. They aren't mean people by any means kind of like how bronies will snap at you for the silliest things and sort of expect you to treat them with extreme respect, heck they seem really really nice. I know it's just a simple, happy game and I love it so much for that, but I can't help but look at it and find so many things that are really neat to ponder about. Every fandom has it's problems though, I suppose. I guess I just haven't noticed the problems of the Mother fandom as they don't seem to intentionally do anything that's really wrong.

Heck now that I really think about it, there really isn't anything too crazy deep about it, the "deep" stuff seems to be really simple stuff about friendship and courage, which are reoccuring themes throughout the series in general. I dunno, I'm just a huge, huge sucker for really happy lighthearted things and the Mother series takes the cake for being so happy.

I thought that Mother was the most consistently dour of the 3.

EB was basically lighthearted with spurts of serious/sadness. Mother 3 balanced it a bit better.

But in Mother, I think it's more like the reverse of EB. There are happier moments (the dancing bit), but they're the exception.

After so many threads of nothing but weak bait and angry people getting pissed at every little thing, I finally find threads like this that are mostly comfy. It would suck to have it removed due to people dumping shota.

Is Mother 4 out? And if so, is it good?

Some great threads came out of Earthbound being available for Platinum users, and being around the anniversary.

>>263578806
I'd play a high definition 2d art RPG by WayForward even if its development takes five generations of consoles to come and go.

Of course they did, because they're an idealized group of destined friends.

Of course, most people don't anything like that, so there aren't many people like that in the world, mostly Porkies sitting around thinking everyone else's lives are better than theirs.

This game plays pretty well a 2nd time, there's a lot that you'll see early on that didn't make sense before that will now

>>263577780
It doesn't mean anything. It's a technique used by Itoi to close off the game in a satisfying way. Its exhalation after holding your breath during the big tense climax and coda. Its Itoi snapping the book shut and winking at you the player using something guaranteed to stir up feelings of nostalgia from a simpler point in the game.

Its brilliant in its simplicity.

rockets are a waste of an inventory slot. it's all about the slime generator, heavy bazooka and that item that removes shields. most useful support character ever
