Mother 3 and the Power of Good Writing in Video Games. I recently finished another playthrough of Mother 3, a game which holds a lot of significance to me.

Mother 3 and the Power of Good Writing in Video Games

That significance, oddly enough, starts long before Mother 3 ever came out, back when I was only a few years into grade school. Mother 2, or as it’s known in the west, Earthbound, was sort of an accidental rental for me on one of my typical Saturday morning trips to a local game store. As a kid, you don’t tend to have a lot of complex reasons behind what you rent, and for me, box art was always a key factor. Not only does Earthbound have interesting box art, but it also has a gigantic box. My child self was sold on the game from the start. This box art couldn’t have been more enticing to me as a kid – it captured my interest right away. To keep this part of the story short, Earthbound ended up being the most played and certainly most important game of my childhood, and it continues to influence the way I look at video games.

Preparing for Your Digital Afterlife at For as long as the human race has existed, we’ve been (perhaps understandably) more than a little concerned about what happens when we die. Past civilizations envisioned everything from chilly limbos to lush gardens of delight, but modern humans have a problem the ancients never needed to consider: what becomes of our online selves when we die?

Saving lives for 75 years: 'Batman helped me find my voice'
