Michael recently sent me this e-mail:

Thought you guys might like to check out the feature I’ve written about Mother 3 and grief management. It’s something I’ve struggled to write for years. Now it’s done, and I want to get it out there. Enjoy.

You can check out his post here – give it a read sometime, it’s an interesting and touching write-up!

Strong, clear writing. The piece is well done.

I told my family I loved them after reading this. :,)

In context of the new developments in Mother, I hope IGN will stop ignoring the series. You can tell when a site does that when they bring it up and the only video they showcase is, again, the beginning. Click on my name to see. Ugh, I hate it when they do that.

Nonetheless, thanks for your piece again, Michael.

Beautiful……simply beautiful article. Mother 3 is one of those gems that hit your human heart so hard. Such a work of art, I cried my heart out after finishing this game and also during the final fight. I was soaking in my own tears…

Thanks for posting this, and thanks to Michael for writing it. Of all the things I’ve read about Mother 3 over the years, I think this has resonated with me most strongly. It’s a really wonderful thing when we can see a part of ourselves and our own life experiences inside of a game.
