So I'm replaying Earthbound these days. Not finished yet.
I would totally play a remake of this game.
I think a remake would cause it to lose a lot of its charm.
I dunno, I guess I just like the old artstyle and sound effects. Most of the time remakes of old games result in too much modernization.
I never understood why people want remakes over sequels or remakes at all.
Wasn't one of the mottos around here about graphics not mattering?
I think I rather have a remake of EarthBound Beginnings/MOTHER 1, I tried playing it, I tried liking it, I just don't at all like it as much as I do EarthBound, and Mother 3, but I'm not asking for much, if it were to just be given an SNES-style treatment, I'd probably like it more, going back to older games in the franchise is sometimes harder if you've played the really solid games that came after.
I want a remake of this game as well, with a revamped Pk system (ness, paula, and Poo can teach each other Pk with the exception of rockin, with certain Pk buffing their base stats in various ways), a hard mode plus extra dungeons.
>game doesn't need a remake
>"I'd totally play a remake of this gaem!"
I haven't played Mother 1 yet.
I just bought it together with Mother 2 a few days ago.
A few extra dungeons would be great.
Maybe a little graphical upgrade too, while keeping the Earthbound feel.
>all these people bitching about the notion of EarthBound being remade
Why? Remaking games is about technically improving an experience so that a new generation can enjoy it.
EarthBound is a landmark game, but its gameplay has aged very poorly. I wouldn't go overboard, but Mother 3 shows the benefits that EarthBound could derive from some renovation. Just as long as it doesn't take the place of some other game.
not him, but there's some dated stuff there
actually some is an understatement, everyone knows how much pop culture gets referenced in earthbound, but I think the most obvious example of something that most new players today won't get is the guy in Onett that makes a joke about yesterday
Not OP but why is everyone opposed to Mother remakes?
>overworld graphics that don't make your mind hurt with the perspective of everything
>changing bullshit 1/128 item drops to 3% like Mother 3
All that could go wrong is stylistic stuff like people's complaints in OoT, Majora, and the removed fog in Silent Hill HD
>they'll never remake xenogears with a proper disk 2
all remakes turned into complete shit.
Remakes are nothing but a meme that ruines the charm of the original game, and in any case. it just improves the fact that originals are better.
The only improvements there i'd argue would be droprate changes. I can listen to remixed music (which is always of varying quality) any time I want off youtube, and the graphics are part of the game's charm. See how a "modern" interpretation of the game's looks could be horrible: Citizens of Earth.
Beat Battles aren't really needed since the game isnt balanced around it and it'd just be a lot of fiddly work to change hp values to reflect that.
It's just... fine. It doesnt have glaring issues that scream to be addressed.
I don't know about complete remake but a 3DS version would be cool
