Tips for Buying EarthBound

March 11th, 2012 | EarthBound, MOTHER 3, Videos

This is pretty old by now, but way back when MOTHER 3 was *just* released, the guys at 1up.com made a video review (of sorts) about MOTHER 3. It even includes info about Starmen.Net’s past petitions and stuff. You can see it here:

For reference, this was years before the fan translation was released. You might also want to read Jeremy Parish’s review of EarthBound, published at about the same time, here. He was also the one who inspired me to create this classic πŸ˜›

On an unrelated note, Tomato, did you ever truly enjoy Mother 3? I can imagine that if anyone did a fan translation of a game, they would be sick of it.

When the game fiiiirst came out I rushed through it to make walkthroughs and such for people, but I still had fun with it. I haven’t really played it again since the translation was released (I guess because I overdosed on it), but I’m thinking of getting into it again sometime.

Whoa, Mato, you just blew up my mind with “that classic”. πŸ˜€
