Petitions Don’t Affect Nintendo
After a few weeks away I’m back and have a huge pile of things I need to update about 😯 First, though, is a set of videos published on Double Fine’s YouTube account about each of the games in the MOTHER series: “Programmer on Costume Quest 2 and Mother superfan Ben Burbank shows off selected scenes from the entire trilogy and explains the complicated history of this beloved cu...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 fan named Baptiste recently sent me a long e-mail which explains things better than I could, so I’ll just paste it right here: Greetings, Mr. Mandelin (or Mr.Tomato, I don’t know what is the more polite)! My name is Baptiste Faussat, and I am a french fan of the Mother series. I contact you because I think you could talk on your site about an interesting event implicating the Mother ...Read More »
A while back I posted briefly on how MOTHER 3 is viewed by Japanese fans (see here). When my MOTHER 3 offer to Nintendo got posted on a big Japanese gaming site the other day, I decided to check out the comment section to see what fans thought about it all. Some of them were interesting, so I thought I might share them here! Again, these are comments by Japanese MOTHER fans: I played 2 after 3, bo...Read More »
The other day I posted about how Shigesato Itoi thanked overseas fans in English on the MOTHER 2 Miiverse. Fans have responded with hundreds of messages of gratitude, so I thought it would be nice to share a video of them for folks who don’t have Wii Us: I gotta say, when they announced that Itoi would have his own Miiverse community and that he’d post stuff sometimes, I never, ever i...Read More »
EarthBound was announced for the Wii U Virtual Console outside of Japan yesterday, and there was much rejoicing! I’ve gotten a lot of tweets, e-mails, messages, and questions elsewhere that I thought might be good to share here, so I’ll post a few of them today and maybe some more later on when I have more time. So let’s get to it! EarthBound Prices A lot of people have been aski...Read More »
So last night I was chatting with someone and the question was brought up – you know how members of different fandoms have a name they go by? Like Star Trek fans have “Trekkies” and “Trekkers” (woe unto all who use the wrong one though…) and Doctor Who fans seem to go by “Whovians” and stuff like that? Well, what should EarthBound/MOTHER fans be cal...Read More »
