MOTHER 3 for Haiti Starts Tomorrow
A new Did You Know Gaming video was just released, and this episode is about EarthBound! This episode also features chuggaaconroy, who has helped introduce so many people to the MOTHER/EarthBound games that it still boggles my mind There’s a part 2 to this video too! See it here! So much of the info here is scattered across my hundreds (thousands?) of EarthBound Central posts, so I’...Read More »
A reader named Pete sent this in a while back: Hey Mato hows it going? There’s this criminally underrated VGM guitarist on youtube named Swiggles1987, and he’s a huge Mother fan, so he decided to make an album of Earthbound songs redone in a really cool jazz/blues style. The first two songs that he released are really good. I say it’s worth a look and maybe you could spread the w...Read More »
Andrew / Q has recently created a bunch of hacks for EarthBound Zero that update the game in several ways: Demiforce hack – The patch will turn an clean copy of the Earth Bound prototype ROM into the most recent Demiforce version (Demiforce v1.01 Hack-2). This adds the word “Zero” to the title screen, fixes a few spelling/grammar mistakes, and, if my memory is correct, it’s a...Read More »
It’s that time again! Lots of mini-updates! Check ‘em out! Memories of Deleted Saves Luke Records says: Hello, I just read your anti-piracy Earthbound article and had flashbacks. As a child, my brothers and I played this game constantly. We worked our way to the last battle twice, but both times all of our saves were deleted. We had trouble winning the last battle, and it was usual...Read More »
Gooieooie sent in a somewhat common question among EarthBound/EarthBound Zero fans: Hey, Mato! This time, I have a question. In your old EarthBound Zero remake hack, Ninten is wearing a handkerchief. This handkerchief is also shown on Starmen.net and around the internet. However, while looking at his official clay model, he didn’t have one! His in-game sprite doesn’t either, though tha...Read More »
Jdaster64 – the fellow behind the Video Game Variations albums that we’ve looked at previously – has his new album ready, and as promised it’s full of MOTHER music! Here’s what he says: My second album of Nintendo piano arrangements is finally available on Loudr.fm! Like the first, it prominently features the MOTHER series, including the following tracks: “Be...Read More »
Last week or so I posted about French EarthBound fans banding together to get a big French video game site to cover the MOTHER series. After posting it, I received another e-mail from a French-speaking fan named Iwant. Rather than try to summarize it myself, it’s probably just easier to paste it here to keep the full details intact: Hi! I’m Iwant, the guy who once mailed you about samp...Read More »
A good while back I posted about map differences between the Famicom version of MOTHER and the NES English version. For example, the Magicant cave was redone and the path leading to Holy Loly Mountain/Mt. Itoi was simplified. Those weren’t the only changes though! Here are a few more! First, Halloween/Spookane had the town layout slightly altered, and things were streamlined a little more to...Read More »
A common debate among MOTHER/EarthBound fans is how the first two games connect, and in particular, how Ninten and Ness might connect. There are always lots of theories on how Ninten could be Ness’ father and stuff like that, and it usually gets people all riled up. The neatest one I’ve heard so far was this one, but I recently saw a line in the first game that got me wondering. When y...Read More »
A pretty common question I get is something like this one, which Josh B. sent in a while back: You’re probably really confused by the title, but I just need to ask this. Has there ever been a translation of the famicom version of Mother 1 but that keeps the same menu, dungeon, and world layouts? As in, excluding the look option and the longer Magicant exit? To the best of my knowledge, there...Read More »
- Jason: Just shut up about comment numbers and post about the music!
- Animegame97: Failed
- Animegame97: 11 for realz. That was funny xD
- Zipperz: I think he did not turn blue; the reason I say this is because Pokey had some kind of malice in his heart so powerful that he did not need...
- EBisumaru: Is Poo supposed to be some kind of girl? Or just a young kid which of being a boy?
