Gentlemen Discussing Mother 3 Part 3

Download

Gentlemen Discussing Mother 3 Part 2 is the third in a series of 3 podcasts dedicated to analysis, opinions and trivia on the video game Mother 3. Warning: may contain facts, lies and coarse language.

Mother 3, the long-awaited sequel to the cult RPG Earthbound, was released for the GBA in 2006 and translated 2 years later by a dedicated group of fans. The game holds a special place in our hearts because of its unique, cliche-defying approach to the RPG genre. Mother 3 is profound, poignant, and genuinely unfortgettable. We hope you’ve enjoyed these podcasts, and would like to thank everyone who made playing Mother 3 possible, including Shigesato Itoi, Brownie Brown and the Mother 3 translation team.

This podcast covers chapters 7 and 8 of Mother 3, and contains extremely heavy spoilers (for those chapters only). It is intended for people who have already finished those chapters. If you haven’t played up until the end of the game,  then procure a ROM, get the translation patch, get an emulator, and play along with us! You won’t regret it!

If you haven’t listened to part 2 yet, you can listen to it here. You can also listen to part 1 here.

We will be resuming our regular episodes shortly. Stay tunes!
