(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.

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
