(Marcus holds Pokey one last time before bashing him into pieces) Good ol’ Marcus Lindblom is still up to his gaming antics – it’s been like almost 20 years since he worked on EarthBound’s localization but he’s still in the industry! He has his own game company now, Carried Away Games, and he’s just put up a Kickstarter for his latest creation, The Robot Apocaly...Read More »

For years Jeffman and I have worked on-and-off putting together the next version of the MOTHER 3 translation patch – mostly fixing existing bugs, glitches, typos, and such. Before releasing the new version 1.2 patch, though, we need to test it out all the way through to make sure stuff hasn’t broken… and I had an almost spur-of-the-moment idea to stream it live while testing it....Read More »

Besides the Hobonichi Techo planners, Shigesato Itoi’s company also makes a popular brand of Japanese “belly warmers” in Japan. In fact, it sounds like his company is largely responsible for its renewed popularity in Japan. Anyway, I don’t know much about Japanese belly warmers, except that they’re supposedly really good at regulating body temperature, so they’...Read More »

A reader named David sent this in: Hey mato! I’ve been playing my Mother 3 repro English cart lately (Yes I got 1 from ebay…) Anyways, besides that topic I noticed that one of the zombies you have to fight in Chapter 2 looks like Ness!

Way back during the MOTHER 3 fan translation, I was always coming across lines of text that I never recognized or map locations that I never saw in the actual game. I’ve showcased some of these in past updates, and here’s a small bit to add to that list: Thanks to birby100 for documenting these! If you ever get bored and want to peek at MOTHER 3′s script, I posted the text block...Read More »
