Iwata and Itoi Mention Western Fans
Hilbert sent in an audio clip from a podcast called All Gen Gamers. In one episode the topic of MOTHER 3 comes up, including the question of who translated it. And it sounds like somehow Reid and I merged into one being! I had a good enough laugh that I decided to make a video out of it! I’m actually really flattered that I’m that memorable/noteworthy to fans out there – in fact...Read More »
Over the weekend I moved a bunch of my scattered YouTube videos into a single channel and uploaded a bunch of old offline videos too. Including a bunch of videos I recorded during the MOTHER 3 fan translation that I thought had been lost forever! If that sort of thing interests you, here’s the playlist of all the MOTHER 3 fan translation dev videos I put up: My new personal YouTube channel ...Read More »
More than anything, I find it fascinating to hear how deeply video games can change, inspire, and move people – EarthBound, for example, has pushed many people onto certain career paths, brought people together who’ve gotten married and started families, inspired people to create inspirational works of their own, and so on. A few months back, a reader by the name of Travis wrote up an ...Read More »
The EarthBound Bash is finally over! I’m still recuperating so I won’t have an update about it until later (and if anyone has screencaps of Day 3, please send ‘em my way!) but I HAVE to share this off-stream photo from Day 2: That’s right – EarthBound’s localizer is playing MY translation of MOTHER 3! I’ve said this before elsewhere, but it really feels l...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 while back we looked at an EarthBound Zero review video done by the Slime TV YouTube guys. They posted a MOTHER 3 video a few weeks back, and here’s what they have to say! Hi, we previously reviewed Earthbound Zero on our show and it ended up being featured on the site and I’m sending this message to let you know we recently posted a review on Mother 3. Of course we love the series a...Read More »
I somehow stumbled upon this bizarre Japanese video with the NK Cyborg boss battle music and couldn’t NOT share it: I have no idea what’s going on. And that’s why I like it! (Although if anyone CAN explain, please enlighten me!) ...Read More »
A few months back gbev sent me an e-mail about a musical connection in MOTHER 3: Mother 3 clearly has a lot of recurring themes and similarities in its soundtrack, but I think I just picked up on a new one! Or at least, a new one to me. I did have to change the tempo a bit, but they were already in the same key. Check it out: Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play ...Read More »
Brian sent this in the other day about the latest Pokemon games: Hi, Tomato. First of all, just wanted to thank you for all the work you’ve done in both the translation/localization scene and the Mother fandom. So here’s the thing; I’ve just started Pokemon X, and I wanted to set my trainer message to something that would reflect my love of the Mother series. Fuzzy Pickles is my...Read More »

- game4brains: I believe that his blue skin was a result of improper protection when he traveled to the Cave of the Past. This justifies why he...
- Viridi: They seem to have the most trouble with menues

- game4brains: Am I the only one who finds Ness creepy in that game?
