I wanted to open a topic about Mother/Earthbound, because its bugging the heck outta me. Ok so assuming that everyone knows how we have Earthbound/Mother 2, and how Japan has Mother 1, 2, and 3, I am going to cut the chase. I didn't know about Earthbound when it came out, and I found out about the game, when Super Smash Bros. 64 came out with Ness as a character. Ness appears in Melee later...that's nice. Every other Nintendo character are having new games on the GCN, GBA, and nothing for Ness. The Mother 3 comes out, and NOA ditches us and doesn't release it, so we are missing out on Lucas' Story (Officially speaking, I know we can hack our way to it LOL). That kinda makes me mad, but that's not the reason I am mad about the series. What I am mad about, is how later in SSBB, Lucas and Ness are introduced, and then when the creator is asked about a Mother 4, he just says, there's not going to be a Mother 4. I was like "WHAT?!". It makes me mad, WHY on EARTH do you promote a series in Smash Brothers Brawl, and then crush it by saying "There's not going to be a Mother 4!". That's like waxing and polishing a Ship that's already sunk. Come on Itoi, what are you thinking, you know you have a fanbase, why don't you continue it. I think Itoi needs to give the license to someone who can. I want to know your thoughts of this series and its end.
