The Plot Of Mother 3 = Smart Phones

You might think this is a bit of a stretch, but stay with me here. One of the key themes of Mother 3 is that of “finding happiness,” which is effectively used by Fassad and “an unknown guiding force” (just play the damn game, I’m not spoiling it for you) as a means of brainwashing the Tazmily Village citizens with propaganda.

Why It’s Hard To Play

I had an epiphany that I wanted to share with you. I have SEVERAL older RPGs, many of which I keep saying I’m going to start and then just never do. I also have a lot of RPGs in general, pretty much each of which I could give you reasons for not wanting to play right now.

To FAQ Or Not To FAQ

Lately I’ve been playing a lot of games. I mean, a LOT of games. Starting from just 11 days ago, I’ve added, though not necessarily started, 12 games. I also went back through and started a number of games I’d been meaning to start sooner or later, revisited older titles, made progress on games I’d been playing off and on for grinding purposes, and what have you.
