Oh they finally did it!
I played the Earthbound Zero ROM years ago and liked it more than Earthbound. I like how open the world is and how consistent the setting and story was compared to Earthbound. Some people think MOTHER 1 is just too 'old school' and not really playable... I disagree. I had no problems playing it. I also didn't find it too grindy either. I like this game and will download it eventually
Yeah it really has some qualities not seen in the other two games in the series, a must play for any Mother fan. But it is a bit grindy near the end (or rather the final dungeon is hard).Edit:
Oh Itoi even made a video for the foreign fans https://www.youtube.com/watch?&v=GxjOnl_Xkjo
