I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you’re referring to as MOTHER4, is in fact, Fanfic/MOTHER4, or as I’ve recently taken to calling it, Fanfic plus MOTHER4. MOTHER4 is not a real sequel unto itself, but rather another free Fanfic component of the fully functioning Fan made game made possible by the original true renowed classic series called MOTHER, art style and gameplay components comprising a full borrowed fan game defined by, well it's technically a fan game.
Many gamers run a unofficial project from the Fanfic community every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the project of this Fanfic which is widely used today is often called MOTHER4, and many of its fans are not aware that it is basically a Fanfic game, developed by the Fanfic devs. There really is a MOTHER4, and these people are using it, but it is just a part of the fan-made games they use.
MOTHER4 is the fan game: the fans in the community that allocates the original resources to the other Fanfics that you run. The Fanfic is an essential part of a Fanfic community, but useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a complete original series. MOTHER4 is normally used in combination with the Fanfic project: the whole project is basically a Fanfic with Mother4 added, or Fanfic/Mother4. All the so-called “MOTHER4” distributions are really distributions of Fanfic/MOTHER4.
I'm hoping it ends up good, and it seems it will, what we've seen so far looks good, but I'll stay wary
Here's the new gameplay trailer for those who haven't seen it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-qtQWUF6-Co
I honestly think it'll be good, they legitimately are putting their heart and soul into this and aren't afraid of delaying the game if something's not right. But no matter how the story will end up being, "purists" will always come up with something to nitpick with any way, shitting up any Mother 4 threads that may come.
The name did miff me early on, but not as much as everyone else. I just learned to let it go.
Opinion from someone who played all three games.
Is this what they talk about when they talk about obsessive and mentally unstable basement dwellers on the internet?
You are in every single thread making those comments like you are waiting for the opportunity. Man you are fucking sad.
is this some meta-bait where you're pretending this is your first day here and you don't know what copypasta is
shitposting's gotten too deep for me, i'm out
Sorry, even this got released on the WiiU even though it's pretty much an unofficial sequel
1: Nintendo allows non-profit fangames.
2: People tried to do the same shit you're doing for fucking years now. None of them worked.
3: You were actually mad enough to type all that down, which is fucking hilarious to be honest.
all i know so far from threads,trailers and blogs
>pk beam is back
>combo system is back
>you wont need to grind so much
>calling home is switched to a mailbox system but the system is more than just a save point
>flyod can bribe enemies with his cash and talk with opponents
>you can choose to be woke up at night or in the morning,maybe hinting some sidequests
>there is a last chance hit.basically, when you're about to die, your last hit will be stronger
>Groovy is an ability which give you ''randomly'' a free turn
>ghosts or tired protags have been switched to being dragged around
>travis and leo are described as the 2 main characters
>super vitamin make every hit a ''smash''
>game probably take place in the 70S
>i didnt saw the modern men so far but a modern mind that look like ''the thing''
>also ''pleiades'' in japanese is pretty clever
i have no opinion about the name i only judge on the content.so far its great but the story is the major point of a mother game, so they need to deliver
OP stop shilling/shitposting
>you have no fucking right to say ''this is the Fan Sequel''
No idea. Looks good to me, but things can always go wrong.
OST will be pretty great though.
Man I am really sick of people saying things like "the implications are gross and dangerous". What the fuck does that actually mean? Are you just trying to say "I don't like it" in a more obtuse and pseudo intellectual way?
I hate the way he's saying it, but I kind of agree with what he's saying. It is pretty arrogant to make a fan game, even if it is well crafted, and give it an official title.
God I miss Jak and Daxter, but I won't be firing up Maya and Unity and trying to make Jak and Daxter 4, even if I knew I could make it as good as the original games.
oh but anon , Nintendo does care, especially if your claiming it to be a direct sequel. In about a week the game won't even exist. It was nice knowing you motherfags
>MFW motherfags are literally shaking in their chairs right now
>Many indications that story will be pure shit
>/v/ super hyped because the game copies so much from the older games
>Criticism of this game not allowed on /v/
Sure OP, I'm looking forward to you spamming this thread constantly until the release day.
>mfw mother4namefags are literally this autistic.
Let's discuss the game for real though.
What do you guys think will be the theme of the Modern Men and Mother 4 in general? From early screenshots of the game back on the old website, the theme seemed to be inanimate objects becoming alive. Not sure how much that has changed.
They definitely seem to have added some new mechanics (Groovy, Day/night Cycle, Travis hit back). although they seem minor, I wouldn't worry too much about staying too close to the original work since the Mother series gameplay's very simple.
God fuck you people you don't even play the stupid series and just want to shitpost about this stupid fan-game who misinterpreted the creator's words.
You faggots won't even answer my question about the fucking series >>285108064
>What can you do in Mother 4?
>Use your Head
BUT I DON'T WANNA USE MY HEAD!
Earthbound and Mother 3 are two of my favorite games ever, this looks really promising. I'm hoping it revitalizes some interest in the series and we get another Itoi Mother game, preferably on 3DS.
Alright real talk? I'm excited. I don't care if it's not canon or pretentious or if the devs are all a bunch of phil fishes, it looks like it'll be an RPG with a fun setting and cute graphics and it might have an interesting enough plot. It sounds like a bunch of conspiracy shit.
This. I just need a fucking rehash of Mother 3, i need more of that cute-seyness. I need more of exploring weird little towns. This game looks great so far and pretty fucking large as a game, bigger than Mother 3 for sure, maybe not as large as Earthbound though.
Has anyone actually asked Pastel how long the game's gonna be, or at least how long they expect it to be? I wouldn't be surprised if it was as long as mother 4 and shorter than earthbound, but who knows.
>tfw it been more than 6 years
>when the Earthbound purists did everything they could to kill the fan translation
They felt it was unfair to Nintendo to "kill any chance" of a public release, and some others felt that Earthbound should never get a sequel and were glad when Earthbound 64 was canceled, because some people are fucking insane and petty.
>Earthbound purists did everything they could to kill the fan translation. There were DDOSes and everything.
I guess that explains all the autism surrounding mother 4, jesus
>and some others felt that Earthbound should never get a sequel and were glad when Earthbound 64 was canceled, because some people are fucking insane and petty.
what the fuck
