Can we change this back to "Mother"? Or just call this a hyphen? I mean, MOTHER/Earthbound Beginnings sounds like a good title

Does anyone else feel like people are really playing up Mt. Itoi's difficulty on the page? I mean, yeah, a lot of the enemies have some cheep attacks and all, but seriously. It's not "OMG THIS PLACE IS A SCREAMING FIERY DEATH TRAP! WHAT IS GAME BALANCE!? GAAAAAAAAAH!!" like people are playing it up to be. I managed to go through there without obscene amounts of grinding rather easily on a recent playthrough...

Granted, I feel people play up the game's difficulty a bit too much. Honestly, to me, the game's around the same level of MOTHER 3 in terms of difficulty once you know what you're doing.

It's not hard, it's TEDIOUS and frustrating, even if you're not actually dieing

The migration from VideoGame.Mother 1 to VideoGame.Earth Bound Beginnings is more or less done. Mother 1 and EarthBound Zero sub pages are migrated and on the cutlist. Everything's been basically copy/pasted over. Main thing procedure wise are Wicks, but since there's over 350+ of those I'll see about posting in the forums for help with both that and going through wicks for VideoGame.Mother to see which ones are series wide (Mother) an which ones are game-specific (Mother 1/EarthBound Beginnings) There are, however, a couple of issues I wanted to ask about in discussion proper as I don't think they're things I should move unilaterally on:

  1. Overall page. Along with VideoGame.Mother 1 we have VideoGame.Mother that acts as an overall series page. At first I thought that meant it should be a Franchise/ page but apparently that's only if there's works in multiple media types, where Mother/EarthBound is strictly video game. That in mind, now that 2 out of 3 games are EarthBound instead of Mother, should we keep it as VideoGame.Mother or change it tos omething like VideoGame.EarthBound (with the current EarthBound becoming EarthBound 2 or similar) or something like EarthBound Trilogy or EarthBound Series? I'm a bit foggier on the policy for this one.
  2. Subpages. On the Mother 1 page, subpages like Awesome Moments, Tear Jerker, Heartwarming, etc were all linking to the VideoGame.Mother versions of the page. Should we keep them that way or create individual pages not just for EBB, but for EB and Mother 3 also? For EBB I've made individual pages since if we decide to keep them subbed to Mother (or whatever we call it down the road) it's just a matter of creating a redirect (as, indeed, has already happened in AwesomeMusic.Earth Bound Beginnings)
