Where did it ever say that? And if it was true, why would Ana not help Ness on his adventure instead of sitting the fuck around?

I always considered Earthbound to be Mother, but set in an alternate universe. It was confirmed in Mother 3 that Giygas could travel between different dimensions and all that jazz.

Ness is 13, so assuming 199X is 1999, Ness would've had to be born in 1986. Ninten and Ana are 12 in 1980, so they would've been 18 when they had Ness. So it's plausible.

I'm not the retard using an NOA version of a Japanese game to prove a point about a series that only has its second installment officially localized. You're a fucking moron. I would have been happy to have been proven wrong, but I didn't think I'd have to sit through an idiot who actually thought that the fucking localized prototype was the end-all statement, despite there being an improved port later on (which by the way doesn't have it either. So regardless of whether the japanese NES version said 198x, it wouldn't matter because you're too stupid to recognize that the updated version is always what matters)

But it isn't. The Mother 1+2 translation is cleaner, uncensored and keeps everything that was added in Earthbound Zero.

I actually agree with that. Maybe because it's so rudimentary, simple, and melancholic in its own particular way, it hits me really hard the most. The story about Giegue and Maria is pretty awesome, and the fact that there's so much mystery about George and everything that happens/happened just makes it feel rather unique.

No it wasn't.
Mother 2 is a direct sequel to Mother 1, whether you like it or not.

1. George and Marie are abducted from earth
2. They raise Giygas as a child
3. George steals PSI tech from Giygas' homeworld and escapes back to earth with Marie
4. Giygas attacks earth to prevent PSI from falling into human hands
5. Ninten & friends use Giygas' emotions and memory of Marie against him to defeat him

6. In Earthbound, Giygas has become twisted and evil emotionally after his defeat in the first game
7. He attacks Earth for revenge

This is a linear series of events.

You seem upset. Did you play Mother 3? Why would the setting change from 'Murica to Eagleland? How come Ninten and the gang aren't back in Earthbound if what you say is true? Mother 2 was created because the SNES actually allowed Itoi to go all out with the concept he created with Mother. Itoi probably decided that to keep it fresh and interesting, it was best to start from scratch again and re-write the story.
>>
>>268741072
Itoi specifically said multiple times that Earthbound is a direct sequel to Mother.

If we literally started a twitter campaign to remake the mother games, and it got enough traction on twitter, nintendo would have to respond and in turn start to consider it.

He only uses that as his base of operations, his hideout.
He never expected Ness & friends to be able to attack him there.

Giygas being capable of time travel to me is a sufficient enough explanation for Mother 2 taking place so soon after Mother 1. Who knows how long it took for Giygas to become a twisted embodiment of evil.

Guys, just wait until 2016 when Nintendo announces the Mother Trilogy for the Wii U to tie in with Mother 3's 10th anniversary.

Hand Drawn character sprites and remastered music with electric guitars and saxes and shit No Newage Retro Hippie music though because lel Chuck Berry
>>
>>268742480
Except it can be argued that the game is archaic, and was planned to play differently based on Itoi's comments on Mt. Itoi being severely unbalanced and rushed.

It's up to the player anon. There are ways to make a game difficult without an enemy being introduced every 2 steps.

I don't see why you guy think its some universally acclaimed masterpiece of perfection.

Its a good game, the music by far is the best part about it I haven't played a game in this long where I love every single thing about its music and sounds but the rest of the game is not up to par.

Mewtwo is actually based on Gyiyg, MOTHER and Pokemon were made by many of the same folks at the same developer.

There's a pasta out there that speculates that Pokemon takes place after MOTHER 3. Mew would be a purified form of Gyiygas, Mewtwo would be the re-corrupted form. Pokemon themselves are descendants of the chimeras, hence "Pokemon" or "Pokey's Monsters". There are even some psychic people in the Pokemon world, which would obviously be PSI.

And the backstory for Black and White involving two brothers fighting each other over two sleeping dragons is very familiar.

You really did. They recover 20 PP for everyone each time you touch them, and they respawn every time you walk just a little bit away from them. You were supposed to go through the whole game using PSI liberally.

No changes as far as I know, definitely worth paying the fucking seven bucks or whatever it is to show there's still interest in the series.

Obviously Mother fans have gotten their hopes up only to have them dashed repeatedly, but I honestly think the success of the VC release, Nintendo's willingness to rerelease some previously Japan-only games on VC, and the fact that Wii U does GBA VC is the best chance Mother 3 has ever had of getting an official western release.

neither of them actually "beat" giygas.
Ninten sung to him and he left because he couldn't deal with it.
Ness, although he fought the stronger version of Giygas, also did not beat him as they just prayed and Giygas died because of feelings.

If you want to say that they did actually defeat him both times then Ness is stronger since Giygas got so powerful his body couldn't contain it anymore, where as in Mother he still had a body

Not exactly. All 3DS's can play DS games, and some people out there still have a standard DS.

That's just different mechanics. Stat boosting PK is also hilariously broken, for example, and guts or rolling hp didn't exist yet.

>>268747839
You can easily explain that away with game rebalance or powercreep on the foes.

Considering Giygas was flowing with power and sending his influence on other living creatures then it's likely that they had a stronger resistance to PSI than everything in Mother 1.

PSI Shield is just a Shield that works against PSI

Depends on translation where it is used.

First you instantly realize this is wrong because andonuts is so fucking old compared to ness's mom.

How do you mean?

When I first gave it a try, I was under the impression that it would be a game that uses the Touhou setting to tell a Mother-esque story. It turns out it was a cringeworth crossover that got the characterization on the Touhou cast completely wrong, tries to be humorous by referencing shitty touhou maymays that were never funny, brought in Porky as a villain for no good reason, brings in Ness for no good reason, ships him with the main protagonist of Touhou for no good reason, and kills off Porky.
That, and it has god awful writing.
If you want a good Mother inspired game, go somewhere else.
