Mother's 20th Anniversary

#1 Edited by StarFoxA (5123 posts) -

July 27th marks Mother's 20th franchise. Such an incredible franchise deserves some recognition. Starmen.net naturally has some pretty awesome stuff. Here's a compilation video, with some nice Mother music.

  

As the video says, you definitely want to check this page out, as it has a ton of great content not only official, but created by many of the series' fans over the years. It's worth a look, ton of great stuff there (especially the music).

What is your favorite game in the franchise?

Happy Birthday Mother!

..and not a sniff of acknowledgment from Nintendo, why?, because they failed miserably in trying to get the game cleared for release today. Earthbound was earmarked for release this very day until the soundtrack copyright infringement was raised by the well known parties involved. You would think Nintendo having ample money to play with could sorted out the legal matters...but no, that would be too much expense for little gain -Nintendo giving fans what they have persistently asked for.

I hope it comes out in Europe on Friday...but I know chances are slim.

@Linkyshinks: Nintendo's ignorance of the franchise is almost as bad as Square not making any more Chrono games.

Yeah, well at least they reissued the first Chrono game for the DS worldwide (that's right, huh?) for more people to understand what makes that game so heralded. Everyone talks about this game, and it always sells for a ridiculous amount of money on eBay, so why don't they do something like what they did for Chrono Trigger? And I guess there's been a Japanese release of Mother 3 for the GBA, but I think that's still not enough. Really, I know nothing about it, but after years of almost everyone talking about how awesome it is, I just Nintendo to make an easy copy of it.

You just wait until systech gets in here...oh...wait. Yeah, this is a pretty special occasion and I really wish that--again--Nintendo cared to release anything related to Mother or Earthbound. I would be a very happy guy if they did.

It's times like these when I wish I didn't break my wired 360 controller in an NHL09-induced rage six months ago. (Wasn't any sort of tantrum. I merely slammed it against my thy after giving up a weak goal in OT, and the grey plastic piece snapped and popped out). Otherwise, I would've beaten Mother3 by now :(

But yeah, EarthBound was awesome, and Mother3 seemed even better (loved that music-based combat system.)

How many copies would you buy if it came out?

Have you managed to get  the fan game yet?, it's available now (Alpha version) it looks pretty awesome. I will wait till it gets out of beta myself.




I am guiding my girlfirend through the first game now....I've got nothing better to do on this Monday evening.

@Linkyshinks: Wait until it gets out of beta? It was canceled because of C&D from Square.

I really wish this game came stateside.

SUCH AN INCREDIBLE FRANCHISE SHOULD BE RELEASED OVER HERE EH?

I couldn't really get through much of the first game because of the grinding... but the sequels are amazing.  The Mother series is probably the only RPG franchise that I truly like.

Anyway, I'm so happy for the Mother series, but I would love to see Mother 1 and 3 come stateside.  I'd pay with money I would.

@Dalai: Download the easytype patch, it makes the original much more enjoyable.
