    I never understood why the games were called mother.
    Anyone want to clarify this for me?
    Earthbound makes some sort of sense to me.

    I suppose it's a reference to Mother Nature? As in the Earth? That's the best of my guesses anyways.

    Mother is the Japanese name for the series.
    There are three games in the Mother series:

    Mother 1 (EarthBound Zero, NES - Never officially released in US)
    Mother 2 (What you know as EarthBound, that was on SNES)
    Mother 3 (GBA game that has yet to come to US, and probably never will)

    For Mother 3, however, there is an English language patch for the GBA ROM.
    It's not all the way done with, but you can download it from Mother3.Fobby.net. On the main page of that site is the blog, where it keeps you updated on how the translation is going.

    What? Like the rest of the game made any sense?

    Of course, pig soldiers, crazy spacemen, and machine building heads talk to me all the time!
    In fact, I think my neighbor just bought a time machine.
