Everyday we're closer to the leak of Mother 3
>>
>>7967837
Doesn't some collector actually have a copy but he refuses to ever leak the rom?
>>
>>7967839
So many "never evers" have been leaked, even things we never actually knew existed. Don't lose hope, all things come to light one day!

I would've never expected to live in a world where a huge chunk of Pokemon Gen 1+2's development history was well-documented, we had loads of Star Fox 2s, Dinosaur Planet, and more, and yet here we are!
>>
>>7967837
Looks terrible.
>>
>>7967846
No evidence of this. The only confirmation of an existing cart is what was at Brownie Brown's studio during the development of the GBA version.
>>
>>7967852
Nah, fuck off and die. Go play your meme shit like Omori and Undertale. This would have been the greatest JRPG of its generation.
>>
>>7967873
Other anon is right. It looks like shit.
>>
It feels like a small victory to us EB64 fans.

>burgers will never make a game like this
>>
>>7968013
That's because the footage you see here came out in 1997. Of course the graphics would look outdated, dumbass.
>>
>>7968042
Neither will Japs apparently.
>>
>>7968046
Time has nothing to do with it. Doom looks great. Spyro looks amazing. Faggot.
>>
>>7968051
Nah, you're a faggot with evidently shit taste as well. The mistake that this anon made, >>7968046 is that they're placeholder graphics in the same vein as incomplete OOT and Mario 64 footage.
>>
>>7967843
Jesus christ, how can someone be this autistic. I wish those fuckers would actually choke to death on stream.
>>
>>7968046
Even then it was from a game in development Granted I think it might've been slightly nicer if they used pre-rendered backgrounds instead of full 3D environments like what the trailers showed.
>>
>>7968097
Still, you have to give credit where credit is due. This still looks nice considering how inexperienced Itoi's team was with 3D graphics when they were working on this game (before they switched to the N64).
>>
>>7968097
>I think it might've been slightly nicer if they used pre-rendered backgrounds
Not on the N64
>>
>>7968091
Those reactions aren't genuine, btw. They give those stupid fake reactions in an "ironic" way, like how you get ironic weebs who use anime avatars because it's le random and funny because it's like there an actual weeb who actually like anime and Japanese culture. That video is just as fake as those zoomer smash faggots who overreact at the character trailers. But it's not fake as in meaning for deception, every who watches it knows that they're doing le funny ironical reaction. Because that's what zoomer culture is all about: irony. Nothing is genuine, no one is serious are respectful to anything, just epic irony.
>>
>>7968112
Oh for sure, it still looks nice considering the team's lack of experience making 3D games, nevermind the fact that they seemed ambitious and there weren't a ton of RPGs on the N64 to use as reference material.

>>7968136
Yeah, it probably would've been as compressed as RE2 64 or the backgrounds in Mario Party.
>>
>>7967837
Looks like the battle scenes were trying to emulate some equivalent of the trippy animated backgrounds in their texturework
>>
>>7967837
This was clearly too ambitious for a team that had only ever done 2D games. Maybe even too ambitious for the Nintendo 64.
>>
>>7968151
why though?
>>
>>7968151
Which reactions are you talking about though? The one's in the comments of the 1997 video or the one's from the reaction video?
>>
>>7968091
Ok, then. Let me ask you a question.

How would you react if you were watching footage of a game that you liked but was cancelled? And said footage wasn't seen by anyone until now?

Their reactions, while "autistic" (in your words), were completely justified.
>>
Looking at new footage hurts
>>
>>7967837
I dont care anymore
>>
>>7968598
how do you know you liked the game if you never played it

>>7967852
I think it's so ugly it's beautiful. I wish I could play it, but oh well.
>>
>>7967837
That factory scene about 10 seconds in is pretty good looking. The GBA version of course looks better, but that's because it's later polished 2D instead of early 3D. As far as N64 games go this is definitely on the better end of the scale. Really though it's just cool to see this game's world, characters, and and scenarios in full 3D. Imagine how some of the cutscenes could have played out, especially the ending.
>>
>>7967837
it would have been neat to play but I'm extremely glad we got the GBA version instead.
>>
Am I on crack because I actually think the game looks pretty good visually? The first time I saw eb64 footage in 2008 I thought it looked ugly, but now I think it has a charm. Maybe it's because I'm used to it. But it definetely has a bizzare OoT look to it which I think is fitting.
>>
>>7968962
naw it looks great, it's mostly just contrarians and anti-n64 autists who think it looks bad
>>
So interesting to see that there are still leaks so long after the original project got cancelled.
>>
>>7968051
Does spyro look better than this
>>
>>7967837
>>7967843
If its so amazing, why was it cancelled?
>>
>>7969075
Devs were way too ambitions with this game putting in polish and shit, and ran out of development time
>>
>>7967837
The car has cool animation and the environments look dark. The top down view crossing the bridge looked pretty impressive for an N64 game. There weren't many N64 RPGs and this would have been cool to see.
>>
>>7969003
That’s an obvious yes
>>
>>7967873
Are mother 3 fans the silent hill 2 fans of JRPGs? Just incredibly annoying and terrible?
>>
>>7968543
The reactions in the video posted by >>7967843, to which the other anon replied. Those are fake "ironic" reactions by worthless discord zoomers.
>>
>>7968047
Too soon bro
>>
>>7968046
The graphics being shit and team being inexperienced with 3D is literally why they gave up on Mother 64.

I liked it though... n64 was so armospheric. GBAmother 3 was fantastic but it was so bright because lol no backlight
>>
>>7967843
why are zoomers like this?
>>
>>7968880
that's a lot of stuff on screen for the system I was thinking
>>
Oh was that video off topic janny? Because it incited a few replies about zoomers being retarded? Or did the post calling discord a tranny website hurt your feelings?

regardless, that video was entirely on topic, so can you just fuck off for once? Everyone fucking hates you. You might as well kill yourself right now, you'll be missed by no one.

Looks like a working game to me, why the fuck did they throw it all out of the window?
The N64 lacked games and especially RPGs, so this would've been good for them no?

Or were they afraid of embarrassing themselves when people compared this to playstation RPGs?
>>
>>7969728
It appearing to work in a 26 second trailer is no indication that it was anywhere close to acceptable on store shelves.
>>
>>7969732
Sure, but cancelling it?
>>
>>7969739
They probably just decided that it wasn't going to make a profit.
>>
>>7969728
>>7969732
The issue was how slow they were progressing. If you know anything about Mother 3's story, they were around Lucas's post timeskip chapter When it was cancelled. When it was cancelled, apparently they had 80% of the assets made but 50-60% programmed. There was a post-cancellation interview which explained this, but my numbers are off. The person who talked about the development of the GBA game said the build hey had at the studio could make it to the end of the Salsa chapter before it froze.

The issue would have been them double downing on this game as an N64 game while the GC was just about to be released. Mother 64 was meant to compete with games like FFVII... not FFX. Imo, it's disgusting they didn't move it to GameCube. They just needed to hire an external studio to be the workhorses they needed for programming. Fuck Itoi for having the GBC ports of DQ influence this.

Nah, kys. Imagine hopping into a thread about a series you don't give a shit about, and pretending you have a worthwhile opinion. For how vindicated against this fanbase you are, the A
Anti EB/Mother posters have been far more obnoxious. Starting threads for the sheer purpose of arguing. Infecting threads and just calling their fans faggots. What RPGs do you prefer? You fucks never have anything to back up what you say, and only shitpost because you can't fathom other people enjoying something you don't. Again though, you seem to imply there's something cancerous about this discussing when you're the one shitposting like an infant.

The N64 version would have been vastly superior, given the aesthetics weren't sterile as fuck like the GB version and it would have had the scene composition to match the atmosphere it was trying to build, unlike the GBA version and how tonally inconsistent it ended up.

Additionally - the N64 version would have been the real fucking story. It was meant to clock in at about 60 hours, versus the 20 hour summary we got.

So no, fuck yourself you troglodyte. IMAGINE pretending you have some worthwhile opinion on this
>>
>>7970054
>"MOTHER is a shit franchise"

Imagine being this fucking retarded.

Was your mother an alcoholic when she had you?
>>
>>7970140
It's funny how they'll never say "you should play this instead" or make any suggestions either - because he's afraid of people ripping on the games he likes for equally stupid reasons.
>>
I like how some of these comments are calling Mother 3 (N64) dogshit because of it's graphics, but would then turn around to cream themselves over a game like GoldenEye or Resident Evil 1.

Like, no shit Sherlock. Of course it will look outdated, it was being developed in the 1990s.

Most 3D games from the 1990s would look outdated.
>>
>>7970189
They're literally DQ games, and they're at the same level of quality as the good DQ games (1-5). Nothing wrong with em at all, minus balance issues with the first game.
>>
>>7970219
Funny you mention that, because IIRC, Itoi was inspired by DQ to make his own JRPG, but wanted to give it a more "modern" approach to it.
>>
>>7967850
the only actual never-ever leak that happened in last years is spaceworld pokemon, everything else was scraps and "just a little closer"
>>
>>7970246
>>7968020
Take your retarded conversation to a board that cares.

>>7970231
Mother actually had some innovation in that regard. The world maps in Earthbound and Mother are fucking enormous and mostly 1:1 scaled with your characters. DQ, FF and other big name JRPGs did the representational overworld a where very few things connected naturally.
>>
>>7970263
Not only that, but unlike the other JRPGs at the time, MOTHER 2 and 3 actually had you see the nearby enemies, rather than have random encounters with said enemies. (I excluded Mother 1 because it still had the random enemy encounters)

Looks fucking weird enough to be cool despite looking like shit. Just how Grandia II and Skyies of Arcadia were back in the day. Those early full 3D JRPGs were otherworldly in their crudeness.
>>

>Mother actually had some innovation in that regard. The world maps in Earthbound and Mother are fucking enormous and mostly 1:1 scaled with your characters.
I actually really like this aspect of the games. Coming from something like Pokemon it's nice to come to a town and have it feel like it's an appropriate size.
>>
>>7969739
They canceled Star Fox 2 and that game was practically done.
>>
>>7970370
If I remember correctly, the final build of EB64 was around 50 to 70% complete.

So while it was unfinished, there probably are some playable chapters in there.

Maybe some chapters that happened after the timeskip in the game.
>>
>>7970370
Dinosaur Planet seemed to be a good point before the Starfox rework, the final boss fight was unfinished but not that much, unfortunately said final boss ended up being relagated as a mindless beast used as a boss
>>
>>7970602
Now that I recall, there were some screenshots of the game that were taken in 2000, in one of these screenshots, it showed what appeared to be a destroyed city (which one could assume to be NPC).

I always had a belief that the later chapters, such as chapters 4, 5, and maybe 7 were developed first, with the rest of the chapters being developed later.
>>
My favorite part of this new video was the battle sequence. It helps give an insight as to how a battle would occur in EB64.

Reposting from a /v/ thread on this, this trailer came from a 1998 Nintendo annual report some fag on Discord won in a Yahoo auction and also came with trailers for OoT, Banjo-Kazooie and Diddy Kong Racing:

Evidence? That's one of the most cancerous tranny-SJW fanbases there are. A similar one which is the FNAF fanbase recently found out the the creator is in fact a Christian and are now refusing to associate with it.
>>
>>7973014
Undertale is made by a dude who got big making Earthbound hacks. It constantly tries to ape the style of the Mother series but doesn't understand so it comes off as tacky and fake.
Every discussion about Mother 3, and to a lesser extent 2, always comes back to "LOL SANS XD" on Twitter or Reddit.
>>
>>7973029
Thanks for letting me know, that's another group of people to never associate with. That explains that discord video from earlier, at least.
>>
>>7973029
I bought the Mother Pollyanna fanbook and its full if Japanese artists, and manga artists and for some reason TOBY FUCKING FOX. He's literally not even an artist, ans he added a bunch if fucking Undertale characters. I dont even hate Undertale but it does not deserve to be that fucking popular and conflated with Earthbound, even in Japan! TThis was supposed to be a Mother 1 anniversary for fucks sakes. And somehow this dude got namedropped by thr UFO moon remix rpg and played smash at Sakurai's mansion?! The fuck. The meme isnt even just here its really bad in Japan.
>>
>>7973034
Yeah. He's a hack who makes edgy 2deep4u games like the Yume Nikki fangames you used to see everywhere, and somehow he managed to amass a fanbase through it
>>
>>7973043
That would be fine because you can usually ignore an annoying fanbase, but its like a parasite attached to Mother now. And I have to tell you a secret, I actually loved Undertale when I played it. But it just took a week to two weeks to play and after I beat it I was done and it didnt really stay in my mind. And in hindsight the pacifism was a bit preachy,
And the graphics were absolute dog shit for someone who got tons of kickstarter money and the fact DeltaRune still looks like dog shit after getting tons of money is shameful. Its some fucking rpg maker shit goddamn I dont understand. It should be like charles barkley shut up and jam or some shit??!

I blame Starmen.net, Homestuck, and youtubers.

I actually dont understand how most modern meme games become retarded meme ass things like Fnaf or whatever the fuck kids play now.

I guess its just because there's something or another that draws in people normally. Like FNAF, I remember that was something that drew in some anons on /v/ back in 2014 due to its interesting lore and setting as some no-name indie game that dropped out of nowhere. Its just that these games pick up a rabid fanbase due to fanart, people doing "lore analysis" vids, streamer bait, internet jokes that get posted everywhere, until you get completely burnt out even seeing it.
Sorta like the Sonic fanbase circa the mid 2000s, without the charm of it being a weird isolated fanbase back in the day that might've played the games.
>>
>>7973043
Like 80% of the initial Undertale fanbase came from Homestuck, since he did some music for it. Homestuck was legendary for having one of the most cancerous fanbases out there. They're so bad even /co/ had to eventually kick them off the board. Undertale happened to grab the horrible intersection of the Homestuck fanbase and the Mother fanbase, giving it enough of an initial push to get noticed by a bunch of other unpleasant circles. At that point, it was running on sheer momentum.
>>
>>7973081
Among Us the most recent example is a actually paid viral marketing campaign. You can clearly notice the difference in that and FNAF.
>>
>>7973114
Among Us was completely natural, but probably seems unnatural if you missed the events leading up to it. Back in like 2015-ish, there was a fad among kid-focused Youtubers to play through old Flash games likes Henry Stickman and Riddle School. A LOT of them jumped on-board that bandwagon, because those videos got a lot of views. 5 years later, when their target audience were now teenagers, the Henry Stickman Collection comes out on Steam and every Youtuber who played the games back in 2015 decide to play it. So Henry Stickman suddenly gets another surge in popularity.

So the Youtubers wanted to ride this wave of popularity and caught wind of the fact that the guy behind Henry Stickman made another game back in 2018 that nobody gave a shit about called "Among Us". So out of fucking nowhere you've got hundreds of teen-focused Youtubers suddenly playing this dead game. That meant the millions of collective age 13-18 kids watching all suddenly wanted to start playing this game.
>>
>>7973193
No it wasn't. It was quite obvious that he paid promotion, the dev must have paid twitch faggots to play it or something. The game is frankly terrible. There is no real appeal, it's just gay. And then, there is some sort of unfunny "ironic" spam all over social media about it. I missed no events, it is very clear what happened here.
>>
>>7973193
This. I saw it happen. One day the game was fun to play, the next it was full of retarded 12 year olds quoting pewdiepie.
>>
>>7973207
This just shows how ignorant you are meme viral marketing. You probably thought those "I don't feel so good" memes were organic too.
>>
>>7973202
I just told you why "Twitch faggots" were playing it. It wasn't a new game with a viral marketing campaign behind it. It was a shitty game from 2018 that happened to catch on because it was made by the same guy who made another meme game.
>>
>>7973223
Being an old game is irrelevant. It would never have become popular hadn't he paid people to play it and spam nonsense on internet forums.
>>
>>7973232
They literally made a blog post back in 2019 about how Among Us had reached the end of its life cycle and they weren't going to be updating it anymore. I can't imagine why you think they'd bother to pay people to shill a game that they considered dead.
>>
>>7973272
Probably because they were given the ability to do so, or they changed their opinion, perhaps? Explain why the spam which even happened on 4chan at one point. You cannot.
