Gentlemen Discussing Mother 3 Part 2

Gentlemen Discussing Mother 3 Part 2 is the second 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.

This podcast covers chapters 4-6 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 chapter 6, 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 1 yet, you can listen to it here.

    My favorite part of these chapters is the sign that reads “Thank you for taking the time to read this sign. This sign loves you.”

  2. Aaron says:

    I found the jam session attack with the Jealous Bass to be extremely annoying.

  3. Seanie says:

    Why is Mao so dumb?

    In Tazmily Jail, I think that the man was arrested for “Lock-picking.”
    If Duster is named Lucky, He will use the name Gorgeous when he with DCMC.
    I used the Siren Beetle make the enemies turn around and I used the Wall Staples in the next turn. Enemies take one turn to turn around but they can’t do anything else on that turn. Enemies can stay pinned down for several turns but they can attack immediately after they break out.

    DCMC, yeah!

    Also, the correct path through the attic of Club Titiboo is marked on the map. Follow the doors that are marked in a different color.

    I wrote a review of Mother 3 a couple years ago. It was pretty rad (both my review and the game) and I appreciate anyone who appreciates the Mother series.
