On July 27, 1989 the Mother/Earthbound series kicked off with Mother, though Japan only.
So, here's to a thread for the 25th anniversary, and for all things Mother.
Post your favorite things about the series as a whole or individually from each game, and if you've replayed any of them recently post how you feel about the game.
And, hey, maybe Lucas and Ness will be officially confirmed for Smash, who knows.
>>
I can't wait for Mother 4. Looks pretty great so far.

I know Itoi retired but it's sad that Nintendo will sweep it under the rug with not even a mention or happy birthday while Seth Green jams a knife into my soul during E3.

Well, wouldn't be an Anniversary thread if we didn't mention the fanbase, so might as well post it.

Along with that, there are also the other fangames and hacks.

I actually only played Earthbound about 10 years ago. Got it as a Platinum Reward a little while ago. Was thinking of playing Mother 1 first and playing all of them in order. How is 1?
>>
I want to be Boney.

playing earthvound right now woohoo! I just hit moon side.. how far am I into the game?

and anyone else think the progression of the game is perfect? perfect combo of linearity and backtracking and exploring given the SNES limitations.

>>255091831
As someone who got into Mother this year, I started with 1 and thoroughly got into it. I can't imagine it'd be as easy to get into if you've beaten M2 though.
>>
>>255091882
You're probably between around a third of the way through once you finish Moonside.

You're probably about three-fifths of the way through the game, and yeah, the game does a good job of not having parts of it overstay it's welcome. Felt the beginning's a bit slow, but that was the point I was grinding on Sharks so might just be me
Also, should we worry about spoilering things?

I've never been able to get into Earthbound. I get bored fairly early on.

Mother and Mother 3 will never, ever be officially localised.
>>
>>255092020
Well I don't remember much. Remember I said it's been 10 years since I've played. I feel after I beat DQV I'll play the NES version (or should I play the GBA) and than Earthbound.

I don't want to go all "It gets better after x hours of gameplay," but it especially picks up after a point.

It wouldn't even bother me if it weren't for the fact that Lucas is most definitely being cut from Smash.

GBA has better controls, but the music quality suffers for the port.
Depending on what NES version you use, I hear there's an alternate ending you might miss out on, that's also in the GBA.
>>
>>255091379
There's pretty much no reason Mother 3 can't be brought over.

The dude that did the Mother 3 fan translation even said he'd give it to Nintendo free of charge, iirc.

Earthbound was also released outside of Japan.

>>255092926
EarthBound has the best world and pacing, and arguably the best music.
Also, it has fewer flaws than those games.
They're all wonderful, though.
>>
I'm glad I was able to play Earthbound and Mother 3 during my NEET period a couple years ago. Now that I work two jobs (both EMS where I spend a majority of the overnight shifts sleeping) I rarely have time now.

I'm currently using Mato's thingies to translate Mother 3 into my native language (as a personal project, of course) and so far I'm having fun.

I have only to translate menu text before I tackle the main script and start having nightmares.

Anybody doing this? Any tips?

Native language is Mexican Spanish.

Play the GBA version.

Differences
>>
>>255092926
I think it's more that it's the only one with an English release, so it had the most exposure, and now it's on the Virtual Console, so that's only going to increase.
There's also this thing where some people who like Earthbound didn't enjoy Mother 3, and vice versa. It's sort of the black sheep of the series.

You could cut the time you take to post on /v/ and use that to play games though.

>>255093468
I don't play for very long either. I think it has charm, but I don't think the gameplay is very good. I want to play though to see if I get to a part where I'm hooked into it.
>>
>>255093263
Nintendo would never use him. They would never trust someone outside their team to translate their game.

The only way the game would be brought over is if Nintendo released a collection of them. And they finally agreed to translate the games. However I don't know if they would ever do that.

Specifically, I meant, but yeah. It isn't a game for every.
Have you tried Mother 3? I heard that some people like that even when they don't like Earthbound.
>>
I tried Mother a couple years ago and couldn't get into it. Should I try and play it again, or just skip ahead to Earthbound?
>>
the only problem with Mother 4 honestly is it being called 4 instead of a subtitle or "fangame". Everything they've shown is really, really high quality, i just hope the heart is there.

Also Earthbound and Mother 3 are both some of the nicest, best games made. Mother 1's pretty good as well
>>
>>255093939
It's not necessary to play them in order?
>>
>>255094024
There's definitely and added pleasure to playing them in order, but it's not absolutely necessary as the stories are mostly self contained barring a few references that you might miss.
>>
>>255094013
>the only problem with Mother 4 honestly is it being called 4 instead of a subtitle or "fangame".
Itio himself said he wanted to play someone elses Mother 4.
>>
>>255094024
Nah, not really. The first game is kinda... divisive when it comes to the gameplay, so it's an acquired taste.

Mind you, I fucking love all 3 but I love the story in 1 the most.

The order for me was EB>3>1
>>
>>255094013
>I just hope the heart is there.
I don't think you could make high quality Mother anything without some heart being put in.
And there's definitely some quality control, like removing self inserts, barring internet memes, and some staff changes to accommodate this.

I think you can play 2 without having played 1, but don't play 3 without having played 2.
>>
>>255093816

They released a GBA version of Mother and Mother 2, but it was never released here, despite both games having been fully translated by Nintendo into English. NoA just doesn't like the franchise and wants no part of it. I'm sure that if they could get away with stripping references to it from SSB they would.

To be fair, Earthbound was a failure sales wise when it first released in the west. Although there were legitimate reasons for that, like being priced at $70.

Although I'm pretty sure Nintendo knows it's pretty popular now. Only explanation I can see for why it's $10 fucking dollars on the VC.

Ah, ya veo a lo que te refieres.

Con "your" crei que te referias mi manera de hablar, personalmente. Ahora veo que te refieres a mis compatriotas en general.

Nah, entiendo lo que dices. De hecho me molesto un poco que el otro anon dijera "guey", porque es justamente ese el tipo de vocabulario que me gusta evitar. Asi como que "neutral master race" tambien.

Si te sirve de consuelo, no todos los Mexinacos hablamos asi (de hecho la gente donde vivo no se entera de donde vengo hasta que preguntan, no tengo acento tampoco).

Mi traduccion se esta haciendo por lo mientras un poco neutral, con regionalismos y chistes donde se pueda, pero ni tanto.

Itoi already said he doesn't mind, he'd just rather be the player instead of the one making it. I'm pretty sure if Nintendo wanted to make another Mother game without him, he'd be fine with it.

It had its moments. It's just the overall atmosphere was quite different. I liked the island segment with the mushrooms a lot, and ascent up the 100 floors of the Empire Pork Building. I think that was my favorite part of the game.

I have a problem with the plot though. Why did we spend so much time fussing over the egg of light if it never gets used for anything and thanks to Leder we never actually needed it?

After destroying the lightning tower, the party escapes by grabbing onto the the Masked Man's ship with with the rope snake. The rope snake drops the party and everyone gets separated.

I completely forgot about the egg. And I wish the part with Leder explaining everything was like when you had coffee with Mr. Saturn. I really like Mother 3 but I have to say I prefer Earthbound. Three is really good and better in some regards but I didn't find myself enjoying it so much until the end. It was only after everything that I could appreciate the whole thing.

Going through the Hall of Remembrance and hearing the theme from Mother/Earthbound Zero was amazing.

Next year marks ten years since I got into Mother via Earthbound. It's a lovely series and at the time I was instantly hooked on its atmosphere. Replaying it on the Virtual Console and it still holds up with the characters, music and setting.

Can't wait to celebrate it properly.

Here's to Lucas not getting absorbed into Ness' alt specials. Mother really needs the representation.

>>255104443

If anybody, I'd want Duster.

Flint would be even better, but I highly doubt he'd ever make it in.

>>
>>255104530
When you fall off the ship and your party gets separated you can do things in any order, even if the game practically shouts a specific order.

That means you can go directly to the Chimera Lab, get Kumatora, ignore the Mole Cricket and go cross the sea if ya want. Fuck, you can go to the sea without Kumatora as well.

It's gonna be though, though.

>>
>>255105095
I don't remember the specifics, but you can't get to that part until you have a full party.
>>
>>255105537
Ness almost gets the axe twice.
Your marketing only characters fails because of his inclusion
Little mac isn't a retro character and neither is megaman, little mac it's based on it's reboot, so is the his stage and songs. Megaman it's third party and has a classic stage just like sonic in brawl with green hill zone
Lucas is a lot different than ness in brawl, his A moves and smash moves are different, only his B moves are smiliar but work different
And lucina is a little different from marth, because she has more focus on the blade of the sword,and most of her animations are the same, even the idle one. Not to mention she has the same fucking specials

I wonder if you are the same asshole that says lucas is your main but you obviously want him gone, if that's so I'm fucking tired of arguing with your delusional post and I'm just going to end this discussion posting an archieve of an old thread with all the shit I told you before

I'd rather Lucas have a cinematic final smash that incorporates Mother 3's combo system as well as his other party members. Like, Lucas strikes with the initial hit, Duster, Kumatora, and Boney combo whoever got hit up to a max combo (16, right? so 5 hits a piece) and then Lucas shits a PK Love all over them.
>>
Hey gang.

If you had to make a sequel to Mother 3, what would you make it about? You can use any bullshit fan fiction there is, and yes I know the games should stop at 3 but what if you HAD to, like Itoi was holding a poetic gun to your head?

Personally I'd make it about giant robots somehow.

Well all the games have a "Friends and family" Theme. Mother 1 was about being adopted, Mother 2 was about being loved and having friends, and mother 3 was about the loss of loved ones.

If I were to make mother 4 I'd make it about recovering from the loss of loved ones and finding new people to love. As cheesy as it sounds.

Mother 1 is great, the only problem is the ridiculous random encounter rate. If you want to play it, play the Mother 1+2 version with the translation patch and the easy ring. Don't feel casual, it doesn't actually make the game easier, but just lowers the random encounter rate to something a more tolerable.

>>255111132
If I absolutely had to?
Probably a hypothetical world after Mother 3, set years after so it doesn't conflict with the previous game.
Set it in a modern society, but not too modern, maybe early 2000's America. Technology is convenient and on the rise, but not too intrusive like it is today.
In the same vein that every Mother game connects via the Main villain, I'd probably have the main antagonist be something that survived the universe reset, like a residual effect. Maybe too much "an ancient evil awakens," but Mother 2 did it, so I'll run with it. It's not really "evil," but it's just a supernatural thing that threatens modern society, or maybe just aliens.
Main characters would be kids from different sects, middle class kid, rich girl, troubled kid that's a little of both, and the outlier would be an old style gangster, but a cool one, because the idea of gangs used to be cool.
Have the middle class kid lose a family member, and he goes out to search for them, meeting the rest of the cast along the way.
Have the rich girl want to be known as someone other than "the rich girl".
Have the troubled kid be a pretty cool guy who's just willing to come along for the ride.
Have the gangster be indebted to the group, and consider them his honorary gang he has to protect.

>>255111132
In the spirit of the series I'd make it mostly unrelated to the others but with some nods here and there to the previous games.

The previous Mother games have all put you in the role of a child seeing the world with a child's mind, how he exaggerates his surroundings(living cars, being attacked by hippies, etc) so it might be interesting to make a game with an adolescent's point of view and that confusing time.
Perhaps with a theme of lost innocence, everything around you permanently changing for better or worse, and general confusion with the world and your place in it.

To be honest I went into Mother 3 expecting Earthbound 2: Electric Boogaloo.
Instead I got a more story focused game with a ton more feels. It wasn't what I wanted but I didn't hate it.

I will say that if at all possible, don't emulate it. Run it out of a flash cart on a GBA. Musical battles are broken on emulation and will make you hate the mechanic and wonder why everyone kisses its ass so much.

It was just Ninten and Lloyd and I wandered into Spookane(?) and got a key for a spooky house, went in, went down some steps and stuff, and some bat turned Ninten into stone.

W-what do I do? I Know there's gonna be a boss soon, I feel it, and Lloyd is kind of shitty right now.

>they saw the game is some kinda beautiful thing that would have change people's lives by playing it
To be honest that's what Mother 3 is marketed as.

To be fair, you can't say it hasn't.
>>
>>255116301

I used to think that way, but looking back, I can't believe some of the pretentious things Itoi said.

Like that "real life is mother 4" bullshit.
>>
>>255116125
What's wrong with that?

Let's not forget "Then I see a game like Animal Crossing, and to me that's Mother 4."

Itoi pls

just tell a company to remake the mother games with better graphics while you supervise them
>>
>>255116441
That's kind of his stock in trade.
>>
>>255116441
>>255116585
How's that pretentious?
He made the series, and is an experienced writer isn't he in full right to be able say that kind of stuff?
>>
>>255116585
No. He didn't actually say this, did he? I just spit out my drink.
>>
>>255116441
>Real life is Mother 4

Really?

When do I learn PSI Gaming?
>>
>>255116585
Animal Crossing is close to what a 3D Mother would look like, especially when you look at the N64 footage of Mother 3. That's probably what he meant, and it's just taken out of context.
>>
>>255116839

I bet you'd shit on him if he was an indie dev.

>Itoi
>Pretentious

Anon, you just can't say shit like that, Itoi is one of the best kind of people out there.
>>
>>255116959
Why would I shit on him just because he's an indie dev?
He still made the game, and in the same situation that the game they made turns out as good as the Mother series did, he'd pretty much have the same credentials to say it, and have it not mean nothing.
>>
>>255116917

He said something along the lines of "real life has strange, funny, and heartrending moments. so in a sense, real life is mother 4"

I get what he was going for, but it's kinda cringeworthy to me now.
>>
>>255116917
why the hell ness has a robotic leg
>>
>>255116997

He's a copywriter, not a developer.
>>
>>255116873
He did. In fact, his website has a HUGE animal crossing section. I remember him saying something like "I don't need to make any more games because I can just play out my ideas in Animal Crossing."
>>
>>255117336
So?
>>
>>255116654
Welp. Both of my characters got stoned. That's some dumb shit right there.
>>
>>255117325

The right of the picture is all the dark shit that happens underneath the happy cute stuff in the game.

Ness turns into a robot near the end, his leg is going into the darkside of the picture.

It's deep, you wouldn't understand it.

Because it sounds like something Jaden Smith would write on a napkin.

There's no room for hate in a Mother thread, mate.
>>
>>255117847
Cringeworthy isn't just what's being said, it's also the person saying it, the situation it's being said in, how it's being said, and etc.
>>
>>255118498

Not even Mother can negate the vast hatred of /v/, cockrider.

Oh, that changes everything.

>Paula will forever be remembered for wielding a frying pan, despite all her awesome abilities.
Same with Peach in Mario RPG. What was it with old Nintendo, and equipping girls with kitchen things?
I guess it kind of makes sense in Peach's case, because she likes to bake.(Even though the frying pan isn't a baking tool.)

Its a shame really, It emulates very very well on psp, so does mother 3 however the combo system doesn't really work that well if emulated.

Played em all on emu and beat mother 3 by only combo'ing by accident on occasion.

Comboing on PSP is fine. The whole input delay thing is overplayed.

Tell me about Claus, why does he wear the mask?

He's under orders from King P.
