Ness Cameo in MOTHER 3?

This year’s Summer Games Done Quick event was amazing, and EarthBound was one of the games played! EarthBound speedrunner Aurilliux managed to reach the end of the game in 1 hour and 27 minutes as hundreds of thousands of people watched from around the world! Here’s a look at the live run, which features some crazy random number manipulation that almost feels like card-counting in a c...Read More »
The RPG Limit Break 2015 charity stream is taking place right now as I type this. They’ve speedrunning lots of RPGs for a while now – here’s some more info: RPG Limit Break is a charity speedrunning marathon being held in Salt Lake City, UT. Speedrunners from across the US, Canada, and Australia have gathered to crush role-playing games and support charity. RPG Limit Break is pa...Read More »
Tool-assisted speedrun expert pirohiko recently found a way to glitch MOTHER 2 and complete the game in 4 minutes and 4 seconds, which improves over previous TAS records. Here’s a look at it in action! (And thanks to Zinco for keeping me informed about it!) There’s a big, detailed explanation on how this was all done here, and although it’s in Japanese you might still find it in...Read More »
I sometimes wondered if different versions of MOTHER 2 might play faster or slower than other versions – and then I stumbled upon this Japanese video that compares the walking speed of the GBA MOTHER 2 and the Wii U Virtual Console MOTHER 2. (GBA on top, Wii U on bottom) As you can see, the GBA version has slower walking. I don’t know if that’s because the Wii U’s Super Fam...Read More »
A while back I posted about a live speed run of EarthBound that was being held for charity. The final time for the full run ending up being only 5 hours and 23 minutes 😯 You can see the entire thing here: I’ve always wanted to try to do a good speed run of the game someday. I don’t think I’ll ever get as good as these Speed Gamer folks though! Also, I think it’s an unwr...Read More »
Paolo sent me this recently: Speed Demos Archive is holding a speedrun marathon with members of Speed Runs Live on Twitch.tv from Jan 6th to Saturday Jan 12th to raise money for Cancer prevention, and on Wednesday Jan 9th at 09:10:00 GMT-0500 (Eastern Standard Time) they will be performing an EarthBound speedrun of the full game. The estimated time for the run is 6:15 by Mickey_Mage and skateman22...Read More »
pirohiko has been constantly trying to improve the TAS record for EarthBound – this time we see the game being completed in 9 minutes and 1 second! I kinda want to see someone try this on a real console – it’d require an absolute ton of luck but I think it’d be awesome to see some crazy kid with a Power Glove on (or maybe someone wearing the MOTHER 2 jacket) pull off this ...Read More »
Over the past few years we’ve seen fans figure out how to play the EarthBound/MOTHER games as quickly as possible, sometimes via live runs or via tool-assisted runs. This latest run of MOTHER 2 finishes the entire game in half an hour! How is it possible to beat a huge game like that in 30 minutes? By tying a bunch of glitches and tricks together, of course. In this case, the key glitch is t...Read More »
For those of you who’ve never heard of it, there’s an organization called Twin Galaxies that keeps a catalog of video game world records – you can read some more about it here. If you’ve seen King of Kong, for example, you’re probably familiar with Twin Galaxies. Anyway, a new EarthBound world record was made a few days ago: a verified, real-life run of the game was c...Read More »
Ross sent this in a little while back. We’ve seen some speed runs of MOTHER 3 before, but I think this is the fastest one so far. Just in case it’s not obvious, this is a tool-assisted speedrun, so it’s more like how the game would be played by a superhuman or someone who’s really, really, really good at games. This is currently the longest gaming or tool assisted video on ...Read More »
