Tips for Buying EarthBound

March 17th, 2014 | MOTHER 3, Videos


TwitchPlaysPokemon took off recently, and it sounds like they beat another Pokemon game the other day. During the lull between games, the channel has been playing a random variety of games… and yesterday they played MOTHER 3!

I only caught parts of it, but here are some pics of it in action!

The chat came up with some inventive names:

Mother 3’s walking system made things easier to navigate… but not always:

And, of course, the constant checking of nothing happened. “No problem here.” became a motto of sorts for the chat 😛

I only caught pieces of the playthrough, but I hear the channel got up to the fireflies in the forest but couldn’t really beat them. I think the main menu might’ve been disabled, meaning no healing items and no equipment changing. I assume this was because it would’ve been possible to accidentally enter “Sleep Mode” from the main menu, which would’ve ended the game.

The channel’s since moved on to playing other games but has been getting nowhere at all:


So, people behind Twitch Plays Pokemon! If you ever DO want to play Mother 3 sometime, let me know and I’ll try to whip up a cheat code or a patch that’ll disable the Sleep Mode thing!

PLEASE make TwitchPlaysMother! 😀

Of course, someone could always set up a separate stream for Mother 3… though other streams aren’t likely to get the viewers.

Just thought you should know, made an article on “5 Insane Video Game Easter Eggs You Weren’t Supposed to Find”; the unused Mother 3 backgrounds were #1.

Man, I’d love to see them play the whole game. The moment I heard of TwitchPlaysPokemon, I was really hoping for TwitchPlaysMother. 🙂

Is there a recording of this somewhere? I want to see all of their gameplay.

Awesome. Hopefully nobody tries any helix fossils in this game.

@OctorokHero I may be overreacting, but I’m upset that they said you kill Claus when he committed suicide.

Also the fact that they spoiled the ending to a large amount of people like that 🙁

Regardless, I didn’t know that Twitch was playing Mother 3. If you gave them that patch when they play it again I’m sure it’ll help them out a lot.

If they played through all of MOTHER 3 with those names, I wouldn’t be able to take the game seriously anymore.

  • Esper: Dammit I’d prefer the new one if the “set” didn’t such blow into the mic. Love the official Lucas voice though!
  • Earthbounder: Wonder if their is a way to use the alt english translation with this voice patch

  • Matt: Lucas has an english voice actor in Smash Bros.? Why, when they still use the original JP voice clips for Ness?
