    What a freaky-as-fuck game.

    It's like playing through an acid trip

    I watched the previous Mother youtubes to see what Gigyas was all about, Earthbound is a little detached from the original Mother in that it doesn't give you much to go from if you never played it. Hard to tell Earthbound is a sequel to anything at all.

    The final boss battle was crazy, with Gigyas saying wierd things "I f.feel... h.a.p.p.y..." "i feel goooood." etc etc and the epic prayer scenes

    Awesome game, can't believe I never played it before. So much to talk about I don't even know where to begin.

    Yeah, the game is very bizarre but that's part of what makes it so good. In Mother 3, your characters actually get on a trip after eating some shrooms. Now that part was creepy.

    Btw, just for reference:

    I love that game. Boing! Zoooooom! I <3 Mr Saturns. And Magicant is fucked up. Yeah the Giygas battle is epic and creepy as fuck... it's just an amazing game.

    Tomato, the lead translator of Mother 3, is released Translation Patch 1.1 this week... I highly suggest once it's released to play through Mother 3 if you haven't already. It was my favorite game played of 2008... being a life-long fan of the Mother series, it was awesome... especially the final chapter!

    Mother croo :h5:

    Honestly... Mother 3 blows Earthbound away. The story is presented in a much better way, the battle system added a rhythm system to make things more interesting, soundtrack is incredible, the dialogue is HILARIOUS due to the translation being direct (Earthbound was pretty heavily censored after being released in North America)... it's just an overall better game. I may be a little biased being a Mother fanboy but it was just an incredible gaming experience. I think anyone who loved Earthbound would have a joygasm from playing Mother 3.

    http://mother3.fobby.net/ Patch is here... dunno where I got the ROM from, google it..

    Patch gets updated this week, nothing big just bug fixes and some translation/spelling/grammar fixes

    The tripping on shrooms part in M3 is :bowrofl: and :eek3: at the same time

    Honestly, play through the whole thing... it's worth it. There are so many homages to the themes in Mother 1 & Earthbound in M3... and the music is really better, IMO... once you've played through it all you'd see what I mean. It's a little more serious & mature sounding, but so is the story & the characters. (compared to Earthbound, that is)

    Yeah it was hard sometimes on an emulator because it didn't always run at 100% speed... but I got switched to VBA-M and it was pretty good.

    SSBB had a lot of great M3 references. I want to play it just for that.

    I would love to see Earthbound on the Wii store

    I would buy that without hesitation!

    That sounds awesome, but I looked at a few screenshots and read a line or two about it.

    Kinda looks like a cowboy is the main star... does the game relate to mother 1 & 2 at all? or is it sort of it's own thing?

    I'm on the Mother 3 translation, soon enough, probably next week

    Mother 3 is most definitely connected to 1 & 2... how it is, though, is a part of the story, and may not become obvious until close to the end... everything ends up coming together. As for who the 'main star' of the game is, you won't even know until a few hours into the game... saying anything else would be possible spoilers, and this is really a game you want to experience rather than read about.

    :cool:

    I remember playing earthbound a lot as a kid, trying to get into it... I never could get past the dumb looking characters but I persevered through them this time around. Really makes me wish I would have earlier in my life, this game was fucking badass to levels I have still yet to be able to chose the correct words for. Aside from the part I was %100 lost at all times.

    So wait...I've only played Earthbound...Should I play the original Mothers before I pop Mother 3 into an emulator? :o

    I had no idea there was anything other than Earthbound :bowdown: :bowdown:

    I'd go Earthbound --> Mother 3, just read about what happens in M1 on Wiki or Starmen.net... if you REALLY wanna try it out though, go for it. There is an 'easy mode' patch released for M1 because it was kind of a pain in the ass/level grind during it's day. It's an interesting game though, lots of the classic songs from EB & M3 started out in M1. I never finished M1 myself but maybe one day :hs:
