Ninten and Ness pretty much did all for nothing, since their world went to shit. I think it's hinted in the game that the human race ruined it with its own hands. One of the themes of the game is the respect of the nature and the wrong use of technology, after all.

Earthbound had better enemy encounters though, since you could dodge them.
Mother was straight up random, and Itoi said that by the end of it, they just wanted to ship the game, so they fucked up the endgame area's balance, that's why Mt.Itoi is hard.

The delivery of the story was kinda effy though. I mean it got a lot of exposition in the beginning, untill you go to magicant and learn about the melodies. Then durning your Melodies Quest, nothing reminds you of the whole alien thing, it kicks back in the Lab where you activate EVE though, but like, for the half of the game, the Main Story just isn't there, instead you get smaller stories, like the Haunted house, the Tank, etc.

Well that was the point, though. The main story did its thing, and the smaller stories spiced the game up nicely as you played it. Considering how little text is in the game it gave us a lot of memorable moments and characters, and it never felt like the story was overbearing. Hell Teddy is only in the game for the last eighth of it, but he still manages to be a character you care about when he dies helping you out. It's pretty remarkable, especially considering the limitations of the time and console.

This.

With the easy ring that reduces the tediousness of grinding not the actual difficulty itself, Mother 1 is exponentially better than Earthbound.

There's also the fact the white and black dragon Pokemon were originally one, owned by twin brothers.

I honestly liked that better than Earthbound's setup. They blew the expository load upfront, and then how you achieve it is what feels like disconnected random stuff. Nothing changes up pace as hard either, because the goal still stays "Go to Sanctuaries, beat Giygas"

That's why I liked Mother 3 a lot though, really good and consistent narrative. Nothing could have interchangeably switched around or taken out as much as Earthbound, where almost nothing really mattered.

Fuck dude the magypsies were the only natives of the nowhere islands left. MAGypsies. MAGicant

There's so many >implications from this. Is Kumatora the legitimate heir? Does that mean she's descended from Mary and George? George stole the secret of PSI from Gyiyg's race, so there must be some connection, but how did it sop read outside his family? How are Ninten and Ness connected? Who is the star master and how did Kumatora learn starstorm?

Aw man, I can't read past the first paragraph because it already doesn't make sense. Why would Porky bring Ness to the future only to have him brainwashed and working as a street vendor?? Does that make any sense? It's kind of clear that Ness is dead during the events of Mother 3 and Porky is unable to see him again (hence why he has his yo-yo and keeps it as a prized and protected memorabilia, along with all the other memories of him that exist in New Pork City and the time passage).

It's a bit of a stretch, but Porky only because a dastardly SOB because he had a shit upbringing and was lonely. His fixation on Ness is simply because he wanted to be Ness's friend. A lonely, awkward tubby kid in extraordinary circumstances; people do strange, incoherent things.

Based on his theory, Mother 2's events CAN'T change Mother 1's events. Just because Giygas (or Giegue or Gyiyg or whatever you want to call him) begins to attack safely from the past doesn't mean anything beyond 'He's attacking from the past!'.

If the game took you to Gyiyg's home planet to abort his fetus or something, then that theory would make sense, but.. nah, there's no way, right, guys?

Kidding aside, chronologically, it's Mother 1 -> Mother 2 -> Mother 3. That's really all there is to it. The games barely affect each other beyond references, but Mother 3's guiltier of that than Mother 2 is by a long shot.

Yes I understand that, that's why all that memorabilia exists. But it wouldn't make any sense for him to brainwash Ness and make him a street vendor. I just looked over all 12 pages of that article and I am amazed at the supreme autism on display. The guy said he has spent a lot of time pondering over Mother's overarching story and I find that hard to believe.

>>254834076
Well yeah, the fetus theory is just as stupid, all it takes is playing Mother to know how untrue that is.

>>254834184
Well no, but I don't know what that has to do with that theory. I guess it would make sense for Porky to brainwash Ness into being his friend but not to make him into a street vendor.

So, here's my theory:

You really do perform an abortion in Mother 2. Now, hear me out before you Motherfags get too nutty. Itoi has come out as publicly stating that no abortion or anything particularly abortion-like is taking place in that final act, but there's an interesting thing to note about Japan and abortion.

Specifically, the Japanese consider children to be a gift, and abortion at the time was considered EXTREMELY taboo over in Japan. So of course Itoi would cover his ass and say Ness and the kids weren't outright naively aborting Giygas in the womb. All the fuckin' evidence is there, it's not a coincidence, Itoi did a shit job hiding it. It's Itoi being Itoi and assuming we're not going to catch on. It's par for the course for that guy.

The reason why the kids can't grasp the true form of Giygas' attack, the reason why Giygas looks nondescript and impossible to really pin down a fluid form for, is not because Giygas had essentially evolved into some kind of insane, pure evil entity. It all boils down to the fact that the kids had their brains implanted into shitty robots. They just can't quite fully grasp the reality of the situation between all the danger involved in what they were doing, and the fact that the entire situation was so god damn surreal.

But that's just a theory. A game theory. Thanks for reading.

No. There is no abortion, but I do think the fetus shapes could be a semblance to the events before Mother 1.

Giygas didn't go insane because of his powers, did you play Mother 1? And as I explained in my last post, he only appears like that because the robot eyes malfunction, hence the static and glitched effects on screen.

No. You can't. The way the DS is designed, you can't run GBA roms natively from the hardware for some reason. You need a special Flashcard with its own CPU, and brother does it eat battery.
>>
>>254838330
There's a GBA emulator for DS, you know. I remember trying it out when it just came out,and it was decent.

>>254838330
Mind you, I'm talking about DS flash carts. It's possible to use a GBA Flash Cart if you have a slot for GBA but don't expect running GBA games in anything but that.

But what makes a game "objectively" good? With o many genres, you can't compare a game like Mother 3 to something like Call of Duty and tell which one is objectively better. People like different kinds of games, and that's all subjective.

>>254838795
Mario & Luigi RPGs, I guess.

The eyes only malfunction when exposed to Giygas, once Porky releases Giygas from the Devil's Machine Porky is no longer on screen. Also remember that only the battles are in first person.

We might get a remake, actually. Mother 3 is Nintendo's one game that really, really deserves it. We'd pretty much get the cinematics if the N64 game plus the graphical art style of the GBA game.
>>
>>254839950
That's the thing though. Paula needs to ask the people of Earth to pray for her because she can't do it herself. She's a robot, she has no soul.
>>
>>254839564
It could be that only your vision of Giygas was obscured, or they left Porky normal to make him visible so you knew he was the one speaking. It could just be the limitations of the SNES. I really do believe this is why Giygas appears the way he does, also the fact that the glitching gets more intense as Giygas gets more aggravated, could be his influence increasing over the technology. Another thing I think could support this is the fact that in Mother 1, the alien invasion had influence over the furniture, and such. I think the aliens have an affect over human technologies.
>>
>>254839909
Considering that the last game in the series came out in 2006 (and was only playable in English in 2008), I think you'd be hard pressed to call it nostalgia.

Heck, even the first game wasn't playable in english until the early 2000s. (Or was it the late 90s?)

>>254839909

>Mother 1

It's fantastic, far and away the best JRPG on the NES except for maybe Dragon Quest 4. Difficult and grindy as expected of JRPGs at the time, if you can't handle a bit of grinding and difficulty skip it or play the GBA version with the easy mode, pussy.

>Mother 2/Earthbound

Fantastic game. Fairly easy, but its world is perfect. Really good dialogue and writing and scenarios, but the combat is standard Dragon Quest. I'd recommend playing it no matter what.

>Mother 3

Final game in the trilogy. Most story-heavy of the 3, best combat of the 3. Features a battle system where you tap A to the beat of the music to get extra hits, which is fun as hell. Play it, but play Earthbound first, as there are connections between them.

Well how else could you explain static effects and such? That stuff doesn't just happen to anything physically.

Send Sephiroth and Cloud in to fix this mess! There is no need for these kids to be doing this. They could make a plenty good game without them. Especially since I was expecting an action game like Ness and Lucas in super smash brothers, but I got this boring adventure game instead! It could have at least been an RPG like Legend of Zelda!

The translated version of Mother 2 is called Earthbound. You can find it on pretty muh every SNES ROM site.

I just beat this game for the first time last night. I think my only problems with it were enemies that could one shot you, not from high damage or anything, but just outright one-shot you with flash spells. And the other was like half the psi you get works so little on bosses it's not even worth using, or costs too much/is pointless to use on regular enemies. Other than that I think it was about as good as a video game gets.

I don't have a link, but basically Shigesato Itoi approached Miyamoto with the idea for MOTHER, and his original reaction was "My team handles the programming, design, directing and everything else,and you just take care of the dialog."

I think it was more a 'what have i become'-type realization than necessarily fear for going mad/evil again. Claus probably realized he couldn't go back to the way he was because he wasn't purely human anymore. That, and the World was ending anyway.

Still a great ending/moment in the game nonetheless

I'm not gonna attack you for your opinion, but I do have to question on why you would claim that the fan translation was "irredeemable"? This isn't the first time I have seen someone express this opinion, but they never once went into detail as to why, so I just have to ask.

I think he's right, pretty sure Miyamoto was skeptical of Itoi's idea.

Is there anywhere that has a prepatched Mother 3 ROM? The last time I tried to do it with Lunar, it fucked up - I got a friend to send me his copy eventually.

>>254846186
It's just cheap bait, nothing more nothing less. Anyone can appreciate how much work was put into the translation. It's so good its mindblowing. Christ.
>>
>>254846687
There's plenty floating around. Also you're not supposed to patch it with Lunar, that only supports patches up to 16MB. Mother 3 was so massive that a new format had to be designed for it, the .ups format.

The patching process was easy for me. You just get the game then use the patch on the game. Nothing complicated. Just try it again.

That's strictly the MOTHER3 Translation Blog. He has another one for Earthbound Stuff (EarthboundCentral) and one where he posts personal stuff related to his job at Funimation or just random Japanese shit (Matotree)

No clue, I could be wrong though. I know the game I worked on used UTF-8 or something, since I could translate it with notepad, I literally just replaced text lines, then patched them back in, and it showed up ingame.

Actually, Nintendo's records from when it was released made it look like if it was ever released in english, it would be called Earthbound 3 - maybe trying to fix the numbering a la Final Fantasy?

Also, the fan translation team has said repeatedly that they would be happy for Nintendo to release an official translation.

Ugh, I just cannot appreciate video game music at all. I love video games, I love everything about em, been playing them since I was a little kid, but man...I just don't see the appeal of listening to video game music outside of the game it was created for. I don't become attached or think of the music in a "level" or "area" of a game to be something emotional, to me it's the equivalent of elevator music, it's just intended and meant to be played in the situation and context of which it was created for, and for that purpose only. I have nothing against people who listen to video game music, mind you. But I myself have no appreciation for it, because to me it's not the video game music that I remember, it's the video game and the experience that the music and the game brought together created. The music is nothing without the game, but the game IS still something even without the music, it's not equal.

I'm not sure, a slice of life game by Itoi would probably be amazing though, as I really do love AC and Harvest Moon. Itoi did say in an interview that you could see Animal Crossing as Mother 4. It seems like what the world would be like after Mother 3, perfect harmony between all of nature.

Ness and his friends went back to the past to kill Giygas, and their bodies were destroyed after the battle. They return to the present in Earthbound somehow but that's completely illogical. Ness and his friends are dead and the only memory left of them is by Porky and his movies in New Pork City. That's why Andonuts is still around without his son.

>>254853993
>Itoi did say in an interview that you could see Animal Crossing as Mother 4.

See, this is why I don't care for Itoi's opinions most of the time. It shows how much he's ignoring the core experience of the game and only focuses on the creamy middles of its world.

That isn't bad per se, but it's like -- you couldn't pull that bullshit about other games.

If someone at Sega told you that Fighting Vipers was supposed to be a true sequel to Streets of Rage, you'd smack their head with a lead pipe. If someone at Square-Enix told you Drakkhengard was supposed to be a sequel to Bahamut Lagoon, you'd jam their head on a pike. That kind of asspull nonsense shouldn't apply for any other game and yet Itoi walks scot-free because of his prestige.

It's 29/16.

Time signature in music indicates beats per measure/duration of the beats.

29/16 essentially means counting 29 really fast beats each measure.

For a "normal" song, you can count 1-2-3-4 (or 1-2-3, in some cases) and it will line up in each measure.

For strong one, you would have to count 1-2-3-4-5-6-7. . . for each measure.

Eh it's a lot of technicalities about the beat and how it's counted. 28/7 is hopefully hyperbole because it doesn't make sense. In the end there are really only 2 time signatures and if you use anything but 4/4 or 3/4 it's just wankery

Nothing. No such thing. "Good" is too broad a work for objectivity to be associated with it. Maybe "polished" or "well coded" can be objectified but that doesn't really stop a game from being bad in some people's eyes, and rightly so.
>>
>>254858126

It's hard to do the music combos on emulation, because there's just a tiny bit of lag that's unnoticeable except in games that require extremely precise timing. On a physical copy, it's pretty easy and fun.
>>
>>254858131
29/16 (if you look at the music, it's really more like 14.5/8) was used to make it hard to combo. It doesn't help that there's a tuplet at the end.

There's some setting that you can fuck with, I think it's frameskip in the video options or something, you just set it to 0 and it makes it a little better.

You make it sound like input lag is the problem. It's not. It's the music desynchronizing.
