Salsa delivers a Happy Box to Abbot and Abbey, the town's happiest couple.
Duster is in for a long night, but today is going to be another short adventure on Frog by Frog. Walking from Lucas's house, the next nearest frog hangs out at town square. Just as we once made this trek from Frog #1 to Frog #2, we are now walking from Frog #17 to Frog … Continue reading Frog #18: Show Me the Monkey
The tagline for the original Mother is "No Crying Until the End," but I already feel like crying. Frog #15 is the final frog of Chapter 1, and even though I'm excited to finally begin playing and writing about a new chapter, I'm not ready to let this one go. I don't want to say … Continue reading Frog #15: Somewhere, Someday
You know, I've wondered when a frog like this might come along. So far on the blog, we've had long frogs, short frogs, and somewhere-in-the-middle frogs. We have even had blue frogs, green frogs, right frogs, and wrong frogs. Typically, I try to write as much as I can about a frog. Even more typically, … Continue reading Frog #14: Cautiously…
For most people, 13 is an unlucky number, but not for me. Or at least not for this blog. Today's frog contains probably my favorite gameplay session so far. It wasn't the most exciting, nor the most impactful for the plot, but it had a little bit of everything. For Frog #13, I met an … Continue reading Frog #13: The Vine Intervention
After last week's novel of a post, you might be surprised at Frog #12's length. This is not another two-parter, nor even a three-parter. We're kicking it back into low gear, folks. We'll be out of here in two shakes of a lamb's tail. We're cruising through this one. Or, strolling, I guess. The main … Continue reading Frog #12: Father and Father Away
Well, I've finally made it. After playing Mother 3 frog by frog for about two months, I have made it to the game's tenth save frog. I'll be honest--I'm feeling pretty good. It has been a real skip and a hop to get here, and I know I still have a long way to go, … Continue reading Frog #10: Tragic Reconstruction
We must have balance in all things. For every action, a reaction. For yin, yang. In nature, we see decline grow to renewal, and renewal recede to decline, becoming and unbecoming in cycles. Of course, nowhere can this be observed better than in my Frog by Frog play-through of Mother 3. Last week, my post … Continue reading Frog #9: Fetch the Thief!
Seeing as we are now eight frogs in to a who-knows-how-many-frogs journey, I think it's important for me to be honest with you. This post is going to meander. This post is going to have little to no organization. This post is going to feel a little bit lost. As the main writer and curator … Continue reading Frog #8: A Cowboy + His Dog
Flint stands outside a burning cabin. Lighter's son, Fuel, is trapped inside, with seconds to go before the entire building collapses and goes up in flames. Flint is the last man in Tazmily who can save the boy's life. It's time to see what this cowboy is made of. But instead of talking about that, … Continue reading Frog #7: Pitch Black + Covered in Soot
