Tips for Buying EarthBound

January 15th, 2009 | Music Talk

Today’s song is Stringent. I really like this MOTHER 3 battle song. At least from a listening standpoint. From a comboing standpoint, I seem to realllllly suck at it. Is that just me, or does it tend to mess most people up? There’s also another version of this song that I think is even harder. Or is this the hard one? Argh @ all the duplicate songs 😛

That’s strange… this song as always been one of my favorites because of how easily I’ve been able to pull off combos on it.

oh i find this one really hard as well. whenever i’m on a song that i can’t combo i just start mashing my buttons and hope to get the longest combo possible :P.

Yeah, that’s a good one — really dramatic. But I always found it comparatively easy to combo; at least, I found it slightly less extremely hard than most of the other songs. 😮

I can definitely understand not being able to combo with it. The fact that it speeds up screws with me horribly.

Is the system more picky on combo-ing with certain characters than others? I usually 16-hit this song with Boney, Duster, and Salsa but can’t get more than like 4 with Kimmy or Lucas….

It seems everybody is good at one combo and will suck with another. I remember doing quite well with this one but then finding one my friend could do easily very difficult… Meanwhile, he had no problems with this one.

I’m just the opposite: I don’t like the song, but I almost always do at least 14 hit combos. I do REALLY suck at Fate/Serious, even if I like it oh so much. I just can’t seem to do more than 5 :I

I was never able to do the combos on this either, although I think I know the trick: press the button when the timpani plays, but not on the off beats. I also always screwed up before the huge tempo switch because I always thought it was coming a measure before it did.

I managed to get the combo system down on other songs pretty well, especially the one used (I think you’re fighting greedier mouse or something) where the pattern is 1 2 123. That’s one of my favorites. I think or at least hope the only reason I sucked at the combos was just I played the game on a keyboard and not controller.

Love this one. Although I don’t think there are any Mother 3 tracks I disliked 😛 Maybe Track 120 (was that the number?), that one is freaky.

But anyway, beautiful.
