    Just remember, don't cry till the end.

    (I picked that title cause that was the games slogan. Just so you know.)

    Surely I'm not the only one here who has played Mother/EathBound Zero. What? I am? (Okay, seriously. One point of this thread is to see if anyone else on here has, I don't know anyone personally who does and you know how it is when you play a good game... You want to talk about it!)

    I just beat the game... and wow. Totally impressed by this oldie-but-goodie. It doesn't even take an EarthBound fan to appreciate this game. A bit difficult yes, but worth it. Not as difficult as a lot of RPGs out there though.

    The story is great, the characters are great, the game is great. The whole game sometimes comes off quirky and funny but truely it's a pretty sad game... not quite as sad as Mother 3 but sad nonetheless.

    I guess I just made this thread for the reason I already said that you may or may not have already read, and to encourage anyone to play this game if you haven't. Forum rules and legal reasons won't permit me to tell you how or where so you're on your own there, but if you have the game and need help I'll happily tell you all I know about getting through Mother. I'm serious guys, play it.


    A couple of links to enhance your Mother/Earthbound Zero experiance


    Easy Patch: A LEGAL patch to make the game easier. Less level grinding. http://starmen.net/mother1/easypatch/

    Walkthrough: Starmen.Nets very helpful walkthrough. If playing this game I highly recommend using this. Especially if you, like me, play without the Easy Patch. http://walkthrough.starmen.net/earthbound0/

    Playthrough: A friend of mine on YouTube has a nice EarthBound Zero video playthrough playlist. If you want to see more of how the game plays, or want to watch the game without having to play it yourself, heres the playlist. http://www.youtube.com/user/Tork110#...5381C0A3CE50FE

    Magicant: An extensive EarthBound Zero website. Thanks to Starmen.Net for the link. http://wind.prohosting.com/magicant/

    So you've played it?

    Well, yeah I'm sure there's a lot of games out there more emotional than the mother games. Like Cids death on Final Fantasy 3.

    is mother before "earthbound" for SNES? the first game of the 3?

    i havent played #1 if thats what your refering to, but i recently beat earthbound for the first time and am now working on Mother 3 since starmen.net or w/e released the english translation for it

    earthbound was an amazing game and im sad i didnt play it back when it came out for SNES, i remember being in grade 4 and a guy i knew bought the game and had the big box with the guide, stamp card, etc. i was curious but never got into it until about 8 months ago

    Mother 3 seems quite good too
    Princess diana you were like a banana slipped on a peel went through the stearing wheel

    Yeah, Earthbound in Japan is called Mother 2. Mother 1 wasn't released to the West but had an english translation set because it was suppose to come to the US, but the SNES was about to come out and Nintendo figured it wouldn't sell. So they brought Mother 2 to America and named it Earthbound, which is what they planned to name Mother 1 if it were to come to America. Someone got their hands on the single English Mother 1 copy, changed the name to EarthBound Zero, and dumped it onto the internet.

    Oh, and if anyone wants to play it but thinks it may be too hard, or there may be too much level grinding, the nice folks at Starmen.Net has this nice Easy Patch.

    The patch isn't illegle so I should be able to post a link to it. Don't worry mods, nowhere in this link directs you to the ROM, check for yourself.

    Well, graphicly it's inferior of coarse. But I'd say it's on-par with EarthBound story wise. Also, unlike EarthBound or Mother 3, the encounters are random, like in a Final Fantasy game

    yeah basically, which really isn't a problem till you get to the few enemy-filled areas lol. But with the Easy Patch that probably isn't even a problem, but I didn't use it so I wouldn't know.
