    Default Harvest Moon/ Rune Factory General Discussion Thread

    Well recently @Octy; convinced me to buy Harvest Moon A New Beginning and I have to say I am hooked to this game. Normally I'd just stick to Rune Factory because I like the odd combo of farming and dungeon crawling, but with the customization of the entire town, and even your own farmer this game is just too great. Plus all the marriage candidates are too cute in my opinion. Heck I can't choose between Yuri, Witch Princess, or Felicity. Though currently Yuri's winning my favor. >w<

    Anyways! Feel free to discuss any Harvest Moon or Rune Factory related things like your fave games, which series you prefer, your fave marriage candidates, or if you have A New Beginning like I do feel free to trade 3ds friend codes to play on wifi with your friends to trade items and whatnot!

    For reference, here are all Harvest Moon titles and their release dates...



    and Rune Factory too. :3

    Okay, I love the Multiplayer option Harvest Moon 3DS: A New Beginning has to offer. It helps raise the affection of your animals, so you can win festivals, and you get items as well. It's a win-win situation.

    Also, the marriage candidates are awesome. On my first file, I plan on either going after Allen or Rod. In my second File, I'm already in a relationship with Neil and have him at red heart. I just need to finish upgrading the bed so I can marry him. X3

    Also, the new animals such as Yaks is amazing. We also get Llamas, two different colored Alpacas, two different sheep, two different chicken, three different breed of cows (Normal, Jersey, and Bubble)... just so much.

    I haven't tried the Harvest Moon for the 3DS yet, but my favorite in the series is Harvest Moon: Animal Parade for the Wii. Harmonica Town as a setting was really pretty, and there were so many possible marriage candidates (and unlike the other games where there is usually only one I'd ever pick, I like a bunch of them). Also, the music was lovely on there.

    For Rune Factory, I've only actually played one of those, being Rune Factory: Tides of Destiny for the PS3, but it's a great game. However, the one trophy that requires you to get 100 colds is kind of a pain. XD

    Does anyone else kind of wish the Harvest Moon series (for console installments) would also be available on PS3 (or Sony systems in general)? Rune Factory worked great there, and I would love to play Harvest Moon games with trophy support.

    I'm hoping to get the 3DS games soon. From what I've heard, it sounds a lot better than Tale of Two Towns. (The only HM game I quit halfway through.) I've played the RF games, and they were pretty fun.

    "Playing around?" Wrong.

    There hasn't been any Harvest Moon games released for the PS3 (to my knowledge), but there were a few titles for the Psp. I don't think they were popular or lasted long with the HM community. I think they were the following titles:

    Innocent Life
    Harvest Moon Boy and Girl
    Hero of Leaf Valley

    They did have "Save the Homeland" on the Playstation 2, and they had "A wonderful Life: Special Edition" where you had an extra marriage candidate.

    Well I usually buy games for my handheld systems like Sunshine Islands, and RF1-3. Are the games on the larger systems any better?

    Well, I absolutely loved Animal Parade and Tree of Tranquility (Both on the Wii), so it's hard to pick for me. I even loved all of the Gamecube versions of the games (such as Magical Melody, Another Wonderful Life, A Wonderful Life).

    I need to find my copy of Friends of Mineral Town. That game was perfect.

    I tried playing "More Friends of Mineral Town", but I had a hard time figuring out where everything was in the game. ;;

    Has RF4's English date been announced yet? I really want to get it! (Unless the plot requires you to seduce and marry a character again.)

    I haven't seen much on it yet, just the pic. There's a chance it might be localized but not too sure as of yet. Especially since it was released in Japan on July of 2012. If it were to be released, it would be sometime this year.

    I've only played the first Harvest Moon on the GBC and Friends of Mineral Town on the GBA, I should get back into the series.

    The GBC game wasn't all that good, but Friends of Mineral Town, man, I was addicted to that for ages. I fondly remember giving Popuri chocolate every single day for almost two years until she fell in love with me and finally agreed to marry me. It's a pity that she liked my dog, Lub Lub, though.

    I also got a good chuckle when I was rich enough to purchase some golden lumber, which enraged the town's people into shouting at me and calling me "Moneybags". Hey, no need to be jealous just because I'm going up in the world!

    And not to mention, the terrible translation was a hoot. At one part of the game, a character started talking to me in Japanese! XD

    Who is this git?
