Aren't there pastiches of Beatles songs on the soundtrack or something mad like that? There's some kind of issue with music or a musical reference, I'm certain.

Yeah I'm sure I read something about The Who and Chuck Berry in there too.

This might not be the right place to ask this, but can Mother 3 be played on a SNES mini? 


It’s a GBA game, so unless there’s a GBA emulator for it I don’t think so.

I've not played Earthbound. Should I really play it first?


Hmm, that’s a tough question really. You could make an argument that you should play Earthbound first, but you probably don’t actually really need to. If you’re far into Mother 3 you’d be as well sticking with it.

 

Dunno, what does everyone else think? 🤷🏻‍♂️ 
 

There’s that whole (massive Mother 3 spoiler)...

 

Spoiler

recurring character in the form of Porky.


Do we reckon that’s a good enough reason to warrant playing Earthbound first? It’s kind of why I’m saying you could make a really strong argument for doing that.

As cruel a bump as this was I’m always delighted to see Mother 3 get some love. Best JRPG.

 

I played Mother 3 first for what that’s worth, I don’t think Earthbound is spoiled or a step back doing it that way. Plenty of media has prequels after all, I just looked at it that way.

I'm playing it on my SNES Mini right now! And it's working perfectly, using Hakchi 2

I'm not sure, you'll get more out of that aspect of the game if you've played Earthbound first, but equally, I'm sure it's fine to play Earthbound afterwards and then understand a bit more about what was going on in retrospect. I think the main thing to consider is that Mother 3 is a bit of an easier play - the combat is more engaging, and much less grindy IIRC. It would be a shame to pause M3 to play Earthbound, drop that mid way through and never return to M3, I reckon.

This brings back so many memories; like the moment of pause and meditation when you visit a hot spring.

 

Never knew Itoi had been radicalised. When I played it 13 years ago I didn't appreciate all the capitalist/fascist themes.
