Does SMT IV have a mechanic that makes the demons currently in the party consume MAG with every step the party takes?
Heya, so I finished Mother 3. That makes all the Mother games done until Mother 4 x )
I enjoyed 3, but I still have to give it to Mother 2. I prefer the relate able modern city feel and quirkiness of 2. 3 felt weird and the enemies didn't quite do it for me. I do like the button timing mechanic in the battle system, though.
But yeah. Mother 3. Didn't really like it. 3 was definitely missing the quirkiness. There's a Mother feel that is absent in the writing. I used to think it was the fan translation, but it's actually not well received in Japan for that reason, so it seams like it's just the writing. I don't like how it's divided into chapters. I don't like how it takes half the game to actually play as the main character. I don't mind it not taking place in a city, but I hate how it doesn't expand in scale the way EB did. I really didn't like the music either lol. It was very melodic and not irregular at all like EB's was. EB's soundtrack made me feel uneasy. M3's didn't. It wasn't bad, just wasn't what I want to hear when playing a game like EB. I didn't like the button timing either. I think that also ruined a lot of the music, because they had to make themes that worked with a rhythm based gameplay, as opposed to music that made you feel something uneasy. I'm quite disappointed it's returning in M4. Also, I didn't like how... vulgar the fan translation was. Even worlds like "crap" don't belong in a Mother game. If just came off as juvenile writing to sound edgy.
Also, Mr. Saturn. There is literally no reason for them to be in this game. Like, I get that they're iconic, but they literally add nothing to the game, and if anything, it detracts from their appearance in the OG EB.
So yeah, a few of my thoughts lol.
Perhaps the translator literally translated the text into English, which is why there is mild curse. I do wish he changed it up a bit to make it a little more silly. I think I have an idea of how Kumatora spoke from the English text, which would be pretty rough...
Personally it really annoyed me how once your full team assembled, character development pretty much went away. The characters didn't really do much of interacting once your team was set. I felt minor characters were more alive than your party, and that really annoyed me. Even the rope snake felt he got more development than the team, and he's an item! I felt like I wasn't really enjoying the game and was just going from point A to B until the end. It also annoyed me that the dad was away most of the game because he was looking for Claus. Why would he spend years going to the same mountains looking for him! It just felt like a poor excuse to keep him away. Also, I just don't really like the Magypsies. They felt too weird to the point of not being good... though I do like the twist with Fassad though, and New Pork City was cool to see. But it felt like too much to trudge to the end of the game...
Those are my feelings overall with M3. O:
I don't really blame them too much. It's not like it's their job to translate it. It's just unfortunate that the excellent treehouse team never got their hands on it. They're in a league all their own.
I feel the opposite lol. I feel like the game didn't pick up until the team assembled. I hated the beginning so much because I didn't like the way they set up the characters and I felt like I was playing an extremely drawn out prologue. I do wish the dad was the companion instead of the dog.
I didn't like the Magypsies at first, but I think they grew on me. I just was surprised they were such a large part of the game. They didn't seem like they would be at first. The game has such disjointed pacing. I liked Fassad's twist too. And New Pork City.
Minor gripe, but I hate how they call him Porky. Like I get that that was his Japanese name, but he's Pokey here. I originally thought Porky was just an alias.
I'm glad we can agree that EB is the best. Also, that section where they all get high on shrooms is amazing.
And I really liked having the dog on the team. He had some really funny moments, especially when he had wear a disguise to get into the club x ) I think I'd switch out the thief instead of the dog. I found him to be a little uninteresting.
I suppose they had to go with Porky since his theme were pigs, so having it be Pokey would seem a little odd. If Nintendo translated M3, they would have been in a bit of a bind with Pokey since it seems rather obvious his name was Porky, and not Pokey, but I figure they would keep it the same and no one would sweat over it.
The part with the shrooms was pretty funny, especially when you realize the hotspring you enter was actually disgusting goo. And the magypsy and its servant was a real laugh too x )
Quote from Miyamoto that basically confirms that Nintendo's unified platform will be a digital one:
"So, particularly with digital downloads now and the idea that you're downloading the right to play a game, that opens up the ability to have multiple platform digital downloads where you can download on one and download on another. Certainly from a development standpoint there is some challenge to it, because if you have two devices that have different specs and you're being told to design in a way that the game runs on both devices, then that can be challenging for the developeróbut if you have a more unified development environment and you're able to make one game that runs on both systems instead of having to make a game for each system, that's an area of opportunity for us."
But please go on to tell me how you'll be playing one game on two systems via carts instead.
Y'know, I have a bet proposal for ya. Now, granted, we won't know the answer in like 4 years, but we should have a bet about what the PS5 will be.
You're saying it will be a streaming/PSNow box, righto? I say it'll be able to play games natively (aka running on its own hardware). You up for that? Winner gets, uhm, let's say 1 months avy and sig control.

Soundwave said: I don't think Nintendo can compete with Sony/MS. Even if they have "one" game like this, those other platforms get that type of game every month (literally) and sometimes several times a month. It's just not in Nintendo's wheelhouse and their previous attempts at "diversity" have largely failed because of this ... Bayonetta on Wii U, Resident Evil on GameCube, the...
