Rune Factory is good.
I have had it for a week now, and I am adicted to Dungeon Crawling and Farming mix.

Here are some of the cooler aspects:

oh my goodness thank you so much for that!!

It makes me want to buy Rune Factory! :love:

maybe I will for my birthday...

Of course Harvest Moon raises animals for eating. There are plenty of fish dishes, then we have the egg and dairy products incorporated into the recipes.

I think if they added a butcher shop, it would add a new way to play the game.

well there are fish dishes, but you dont raise fish, you just catch them. Egg products don't really count because they're not really alive.

I think that taking your cow or chicken to a butcher shop would be a little...harsh? I don't know, it's a kid's game and it seems like harvest mon wouldn't do that. Especially because you name all your animals.

Ya I don't think farm animals should be eaten...but if there was no fish in the game then you never wolud eat meat...and that would suck

Well you can keep fish in the pond in Friends of Mineral Town...I don't know if that counts as raising fish or not.

Though it may seem harsh eating your livestock or selling their meat, I did suggest that this would be risky because while the meat would be valuable, you would lose affection points with your animals, just like when they actually die in game.

I suggested this because animals can already die in game. Whether they get sick and you can't afford the medicine, or you just don't feed them. Say you run into a dry season where your crops don't do well. If you can't afford to feed the animals, you would have the option of at least making money off the meat so you could feed the rest of the flock.

I don't think of it as an entirely childish game. It is simple enough for a child to play, but I think it is more targeted for everyone. Not many kids I would imagine getting a kick out of doing chores. I see it more as for people who want a relaxing escape from the day to day lives we live today.

The same thing goes with pokemon, while it is simple enough for children to play it, the complexities make it interesting for even adults to enjoy.

No, no, I agree with you about the children thing. It can be a realaxing game for older people to play. Plus, you're right, small children wouldn't be able to read and woudln't be able to play it too well.

And I agree with the whole 'if crops die how do you feed animals?' but Animals produce stuff you can sell, too. Like eggs and Milk and wool. I usually live off animals only in my harvest moon games.

I think a butcher shop that's only used for emergencies would be a little fun, as long as the game lets you know that you'll lose points and such.

I'm not trying to fight about it ^_^

As strange as this sounds, if I could have a new pet in Harvest Moon, I think I would want a penguin. I love penguins and I think it would be cool living in my fish pond. It would be a motivation to keep the fish pond filled at least.

I doubt this would ever happen though, mainly because it would break away from the whole farming simulation theme if they started introducing exotic animals. Then it would start getting wacky like the SIMS.

I'm gonna be bit less active in this thread, I've pretty much stopped playing HM for the moment, so I can't really take part in discussions.

I'll still be around SPPf, and I'll occasionally pop in to do co-owner stuff, but I just won't post as much.

Well, I have to say that I am getting freaking rich off a strawberries in Rune Factory.
I've been courting Lara with one each day... but I haven't been playing much since I got Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon, a game I have been wating for for 2 years.

But, I am not to far into Rune Factory seeing as have been taking all my time getting rich. I'm over level 30 and still haven't beaten the second boss... maybe I should get to work.

I'm not worried about the bath house thing, seeing as I would feel awful stealking Melody from Camus (good guy). But how do you activate town events? I can't seem to do it. I keep walking around, and I have talked to everyone, but the only one to activate was the Scavenger Hunt. Can anyone help here?

Penguins plain and simple. In any game I would like to have a penguin. In real life, if I had a decent house with a pool in the backyard, I would love to have a pet penguin. Unfortunately, since it'll probably never happen, at least I live within driving distance of the New England Aquarium.

I love the games, a nice alternative to action games. Something easy going. I enjoy games that have you live a life.

And remember no one liners :)

Oh, and btw, on the list on post 277, it menions duck twince, and so I did a little research and apparently you have have farming ducks that produce duck eggs, and you can also have a pet duck, which most likely doesn't lay eggs.
The pet duck is also brown and a emerald green ring around its neck, I think theres a image in the site I listed before
(http://www.fogu.com/hm/animal_march/pets.php)\

Edit;

Games in the Harvest Moon Club Extras have been updated. How including, Harvest Moon: Magical Melody (Wii)

When did Harvest Moon Magic Melody come out!?!?

The one for Gamecube? Thats the real cutesy one with the characters with big heads, isn't it? It was released a few years ago... I tried it, but it was too small. There wasn't enough there, and I got bored. Also, I didn't like the graphics, they were really too bright for me.

Dunno if I've answered this yet, but I am now. =]

Chipmunks, Penguins, deer... And maybe a dolphin that lives in your pond!

That's a really nice change of objectives, especially when you need to calm down.(guilty of being hyper when playing something like Resident Evil 4)

P.S. I hope this is better.

What do you spend the most time doing while playing harvest moon?

Typically, I spend most of my time perfecting my farm. I do what I can to make sure my fields are all clear, crops planted in decent formations, and tools upgraded as much as I can afford.

I try to do as many of the social events as possible, but unless I'm playing while I'm online as well, I'll usually forget when the events are unless I'm reading a guide.

I would be in full support of a graphics contest, but I probably wouldn't be participating, just because I really don't have any graphical skills.

What do you spend the most time doing while playing harvest moon?

When im in my Farm/Ranch I would go feed my animals then brush them (Exept for my dog, I let it run around untill 8:30 PM) then I would water my plants and harvest the ones that were ready

In the town I would Go to the shop and buy anything I need Then go to the diner to get something to eat. Then I would go talk to some of the people (Mostly the fishing people)

Then when im not in my ranch/farm or in the town (Another island, Forest, Mountain, Mine ect) I would do what I can there or see if I can find items that are only in that area

P.S. I always pick weeds I see in any area im in

A contest sounds fun! I think its a great idea

The Contest stater award goes to, Riolu! (I just think of random things...)

Or one with different sections. eg. part one is the ingame comp, part two is the questionire and the final round is a design thing.

Penguinist Trainer
18th April 2009, 10:42 PM
That would be an interesting idea for a contest. I think the different sections would be very challenging.

For instance if there was an in-game competition, it could be something like "How long does it take you to reach X amount of dollars" or maybe "Ship X amounts of S crops/goods".

In regards to a questionnaire, we could have questions such as "How many potential spouses are in X", or maybe "Who's birthday is on X", or even "What event happens on X".

I think the design aspect would be the most interesting, primarily because it would give everyone a chance to show off their graphics skills. I will admit that I have almost no design skills, but I think its interesting nonetheless.

I think the only difficult thing would be how to judge something like that. Anyways, since I'm not active too much at the moment, I thought I'd at least throw my 2 cents in.

Honsy
22nd April 2009, 6:25 AM
ohai.

I like the graphic design contest (mainly because that's the only contest I'd have a shot at).

For the judging, just appoint any people that aren't participating to judge.

Yes, but the problem with that, people may cheat... and also edit there answers and look it up.

And if every one got it right it would be not very useful at a round, its quiet easy to find the answer for say "When is X's birthday", and another fault is that for an in-game challenge all people taking part have to have the same game, since it 'could' be easier to make money in some games then others.

But i'm certain of having a "design" round, so yeah.

Oh the competition, why don't we do an art thing? Like fan art or banners or something? Or a drabble contest? The winner gets a graphic? Something like that? Cheating is close to impossible, here, and almost everyone can take a whack at it. What do you think?

Huh, joining this kept slipping my mind. Well, anyway, I'd like to join. My first Harvest Moon game was Back to Nature, and I primarily play because I like animals and having my character get married. Lets me relax, so it's one of the few games my mother allows to play during exam study breaks. Currently playing Tree of Tranquility on the Wii and waiting impatiently for Wakuwaku Animal March to be translated.

What did you name your Harvest Moon main characters in your games?
DS Cute / Tree of Tranquility: Sable (girl character), since I was reminded of the one from Animal Crossing with the brown hair. Plus, I like the name.

A Wonderful Life: Something around the lines of Mac. Was into Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends at the time.

Island of Happiness: Xash, shortened from my Nobody name / username here.

Save the Homeland: Elias, one of my favorite names.

Back to Nature: Jack. Default name, OTL.

More Friends of Mineral Town: Claire. Default name again, another OTL.

Feeding animals, watering crops, basic blablah. Mostly giving gifts to people though, I like scenes after befriending them.

Also, I'm getting Chase's confession soon, since he's already at 6 hearts. It just happens to be rainy (Summer 1 - Year 2). Aw man, I love that tsundere. |D Got Luke's and Gill's confessions already, so I'm wondering if I should just get all of the bachelors' before getting married ROFL.

The comics (http://www.ranchstory.co.uk/?games/Harvest_Moon_Exciting_Animal_March/Comics) from the official site (the site forementioned just fansubbed it) are making me even more impatient for Animal March... the Wizard and God look cool. Also the new protagonists, having 2 children, olawd. @__@ Anyone other than Tim agree with me? Haha~

As for the club contest, I lack skill in graphics. I just draw. ^__^ Well, have fun, participants.

I read thoes comics alot! I wish thay would get a new one by now but oh well. Chihaya (Chase what ever!) is the best! If my Wii would work I would start playing ToT (I pre ordered the game and durring the waiting time my Wii fell ToT) and Merrey him!

What did you name your Harvest Moon main characters in your games?

ToT = Haruhi (I bet you know why...)

AnWL = Suu (There was no Shugo Chara at the taime! But I did like the name)

IoH = Mark (I did their normal names)

I'm moving at hyperspeed with Chihaya/Chase's hearts. XD One day it's 4, the next, 5, then 6, then 7, now 8... I just need to ship 6 more dishes and get the Blue Feather then I'm all set to marry him. <33 (... Now I just wish my future kid wouldn't be so rude.)

Also, I found this account (http://s713.photobucket.com/albums/ww137/Coughdrop18/Harvest&#37;20moon/) with a ton of ToT / AM fanart. Mostly couplings, so enter at own risk?

I'll enter the competition, probably.

Any specific information for it?

AceTrainerTim
6th May 2009, 10:02 AM
Any specific information for it?

I think I will make it out like this...
And don't expect the actual thing to be like this below, but it may.

Round One:

Gender Switch
You will get a original Harvest Moon or Rune Factory person picture and edit it to look like the opposite gender.

So getting a picture like this;
http://www.fogu.com/hm6/img/chan3/villagers/celia_p300.png
and turning into male look alike.

Round two:

Signature Making
Make something suitable for signatures on this forum(e.g buttons, banners, images).
Every entry will be added to the Harvest Moon Club Extras selection.

Round three:

Huh?
The judges/or myself will post a picture and maybe a short story, then you would have to write a sentence on what the person ingame maybe said, or be saying, then followed by a conclusion.
(e.g if I post a seen of the hero in the middle of a bucket load of harvest sprites, and a text saying: After leaving the Bar, then stumbling around town, Mark see a little hut you burst in and then you're surrounded by Harvest Sprites, you then mumble; "??" you could write;

"What the... Little fairies... arg... I didn't know I drank that much" *Hiccup* "Fairies.. every where" and after that he collapsed on the ground with a bang, amused the harvest sprites danced on his unconsion body.)

All Entries will be PM'd to the judges to avoid cheating and the theft of ideas, so even if ideas are similiar we know one didn't take anothers members idea.

But if anyone wants something to be changed or added, they can consult with the members of our club and myself.

Xashlei
8th May 2009, 5:21 AM
Is it possible to just do a new drawing of the genderbended character on Tegaki? I really suck at editing actual pictures. o_o

On another ToT note, I'm getting married to Chase in 2 days in-game. <33 ... And I lol'd when I actually did the 20 more lumber request by Luke. I kept using it on buildings (lvl 3-5 house), and almost a year later he was still beat in the race. It's ridiculous, was he lazing all that time? XD

riolulu
8th May 2009, 1:42 PM
Now to answer my own topic...

What did you name your Harvest Moon main characters in your games?

In DS:Cute I named her Starr, and named my son Miku
in AnoWL I named her Jill and...I forget my son's name, I'll have to go play it again. *Hasn't played gamecube in forever*
in MFoMT I named her Fallen Starr and I do not have a child yet ~ *needs to play that game, too*

---

and and and I don't think I'll be entering the gender change contest because I cannot sprite or anything like that, unless you mean draw the person. I may make a banner or something for the siggy contest, though. When's the deadline?

~riolulu

AceTrainerTim
9th May 2009, 7:01 AM
With gender bend you can either sprite your own one, must look like the actual person though or edit the exsiting picture, I can supply most characters in harvest moon, just ask.

If you enter you have to do all challenges, even if you can't do it well.

The dates will be confirmed when we have at least one judge and three challengers.

Judging will be based on a score out of 10 on each part, the person with the top score at the end will win... a graphic, thing, lol

So far we have...

hmm...we have to enter them all? since I can't sprite or alter, can I be a judge? I want to participate in this! =D I'd be glad to judge fairly.

Oh, and I played my AnWL today for the first time in a few months. My son's name is Chriss. <3 I also remembered something that I think I will share. In my first game, DS:Cute, the main characters name is Starr, as I mentioned. In my second game, AnWL, my character's nickname [that my husband calls her] is Star. In my third game, once I get married, I will nickname her Jil after my AnWL girl, but with the last letter taken off. I will continue this pattern as I get more games. ^_^ I just thought that was cool.....^_^''

Would it be alright if I joined? I love Harvest Moon games. As I've gotten older, I've really grown to appreciate how freestyle the games are. The only bad things I have to say about the series are that I wish that the worlds were bigger and that mining was slightly less addicting . . .

Now, does anyone know how long it takes to get copies of a Harvest moon game to be sold Australia, like does it take month or two waiting period before coming to Australia or does it come out in shops at the same time as USA or...?

Harvest Moon: Animal Parade and Harvest Moon: Sunshine Island Kozunai
Thanks to Harvest of the Forums this was brought to my attention. As stated in the previous news post Natsume confirmed that they would be bringing Harvest Moon to this years E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo) well now they have officially told us that they will be bringing Harvest Moon: Animal Parade, which we know as Harvest Moon: Exciting Animal March, as well as Harvest Moon: Sunshine Island, formerly know as Harvest Moon: Shining Sun and Friends. We will be keeping you updated with the news that we get from E3, which will be held in just a couple of weeks. As of right now they are scheduled to be released late this summer. Click below to go to their respective pages.

21 May 2009, 11:53 am
Yep, yep I'm looking forward to the E3 trailers, and hopefully they'll be released late Summer without issues. A bit late in bringing the news over here, but I'm pretty sure most have already heard. ~Just in case you missed it~ woop.

I've stopped playing ToT for a while. I guess it felt kinda sluggish after marriage.

This includes the amount of points they gained and/or the picture. Some people just aren't comfortable with that....so if you are in that boat please let me know as soon as you can. :)

I just submitted my last 2 entries for the contest. I wish everyone the best of luck. This was a lot of fun. I haven't tried to do anything graphical since high school and that was 7 years ago. I hope everyone enjoyed this as much as I did. I would love to try to do this again sometime. Maybe we can get some more participants, different competitions. Either way, it would be great to do something like this again in the future.

Note: also riolulu can you PM me to verify that you received all 3 of my submissions? I just want to make sure I sent them correctly.

I've sent all of my entrys. :)

But remember guys tomorrow is the dead line. Then hopefully on the 16th or two days from now riolulu will post the scores and entrys... Then I'll add them to the front page. If I can...

Recently I can only edit abit of the front page... If I edit to much it comes up with a error :|

I might go back to the front page and edit out the ranks, as I have gotten lazy catching up on unactive members and such... :( Lol

Hey guys!

As you know, today is the 15th and we all know what that meaaaannnsss...


The winners are being announced!

First, I will show all the entries I received!

NOTE: if yours is not here, please do not yell and make a big fight :\ I got what I got, and if you had trouble sending then that is not my fault. Entry numbers are in order of when I received them.

remember, here was the picture:

~Entry one, by Honsy:


Damn. The cows are getting more action than me.

~Entry two, by AceTrainerTim:


"... Don't tell me you got down with the horse again."

"You know what happened last time!"

~Entry three, by Penguinist Trainer:


(Guy thinking to self)

Why is it that every time I pick up a girl at a bar she always turns into a cow in the morning??? To make matters worse she opens up the morning conversation with..."I'm Late..."

Now, I will announce the amount of points each entry received!

caption contest:

gained 9/10 points!!! This caption was very funny, and realistic! I think I even lol'd when I read it! It did not get full points because it did not say who was saying it...the horse could have been saying it! However, that factor did make it a bit more funny, so only one point was subtracted from it.

gender swap:

gained 5/15 points. The edited version was very basic, and barely anything was changed. The face stayed completely the same, just the hair was chopped off. However, it gained 5 points rather than 2 or so because the crotch was shaded a bit more in the edited version and that's...realistic. ^_^'' So...yeah good job on that. :3

signature:

gained 10/10 points!!! This graphic, although not a banner, was very well put together and very cute! :3 I love the little HM in the corner and love how the black fades out from the bottom to top. :3 very nice job here!

caption contest:

gained 6/10 points! It was pretty funny! However, I didn't quite understand why it was in two different quotes...why not just make it all on one line? So that caused it to suffer some points, sadly....also it wasn't as funny as Honsy's XP

gender swap:

gained 15/15 points!!! You changed colors, faces, hair! You did a really good job on it and I am so impressed with it!

signature contest:

gained 7/10 points! The theme and idea of it were very very good, but the way you put the pictures together could've been cleaned up a bit more. Also, where you have 'club' and 'join now' it's a little clumped...like it says "harvest moon club join now.' A dash or something could have been put in between 'club' and 'join' to separate them just a bit more. However, it was still very good!



caption contest:

gained 6/10 points! The idea that you put across was funny and enjoyable to read. However, it was not portrayed in the clearest way, and punctuation was a bit overused.

gender swap:

gained 7/15 points!! The pictures are a bit blurry, and the bodies were just switched, no other edits were really made. This was a really good idea, but would have gained more points if it had been done just a bit more clearly.

signature contest:

gained 7/10 points! Your picture was pretty well made, and the idea was great XD The pictures were a bit distorted and blurry, though... :c


Winners tiiiiiime!!!

Winner of the caption contest:

HONSY!!! congratulations!!!

Winner of the gender swap:

ACETRAINERTIM!!! Congratulations to you!

Winner of the signature contest:

HONSY!!! Congratulations!!!


I hope you all had an amazing time in this contest, and again, congratulations to the winners!!!

Either way.

Thank you everyone for partcipanting :)

And a special thank you for Riolulu

I'll make a user bar in a little while for everyone :)

AceTrainerTim
17th June 2009, 6:52 AM
The highest score you can get is 40/40

Although, it was directly to you, nor very clear.

Um.. as for winners... I think Honsy should get it, as of riolulu style of judging, which was a winner of each round instead of an overall winner.

So I'll soon make a user bar for Honsy if he wants to use it...

And as for riolulu's user bar, Lol its not very Harvest moonish but it matched your current sig, so I made it like that, although Plusle and Minin look blurred...

Oh well ;D At least every one is happy... Although its unfortunate that MaxUnlimited did not partcipant in the previous contest. But not to worry, there will be more contests.

EDIT: In other news [and to get rid of that one-liner I just made DX] I am obsessed with More Friends Of Mineral Town now...I just picked it up and bought a new rucksack [one that holds more than three items] and am now working on making both Cliff and Gray like me at a red heart level. Then I will decide who to marry. My original goal was to marry Gray, so he's at green heart. However, when I met Cliff, I just loved his shyness XDDD So now he's at a purple heart. I can't decide!! D= any help here?

Other than than getting married in that game, I other goals are to put my horse and dog at maximum hearts [my dog is at 4 and my horse is at 5] and get a cow. [yeah, i still don't have one -___- ] so...yeah I have some work to do, but it's fun!!!

A new game Rune Factory 3, is beeing made, estimated 80&#37; development has been completed, but theres no specified console as of now.

And also, new Harvest Moon for DS = estimated 75% development complete

I understand about the one liner thing.

The only new thing going for me in the world of HM, I'm currently trying to marry Denny and Vaughn in my two files of Island of Happiness.

Also, I'm currently trying to get ahold of a copy of Rune Factory 2. I love the series and I want to continue playing it.

So, that is pretty much it in the world of Harvest Moon at the moment.

The problem is, They are both adorable, and I like both their personalities. Cliff is cute because he is shy, but when he's not, he's fun-loving and has a personality similar to my dream-guy. *floats* But, Gray was the one I was going for originally, and he is a bit cuter, and I like the challenge he presents, how he's all mean and "baaaah humbug but when I talk to him he opens up to me and is super sweet. ;)

So I like both!!!

and and that's super cool with the new HM games. ;) I'm thinking about getting a rune factory next year. Not this year. Too many games to play this year! D:

and to answer the topic:

Classic is better, as I've herd on Otaku, your wives used to cook you dinner and wait for you to go to bed before going and have lots of realistic things to say. But they are getting less and less real and more and more robot-like. D: So...yeah

May I join?~desu I really love Harvest Moon.~desu I have been playing since I was six or seven, and I am now fifteen.~desu. The first Harvest Moon game I played was Harvest Moon 64 for the Nintendo 64.~desu. I rented it from bBockbuster, and then decided later that I wanted to own it permanently.~desu In that game it took me 7 years in-game to marry Elli, and I racked up a total of 10 years in-game.~desu

Here are all the Harvest Moon games I own, those I owned, and the ones I plan on getting.~desu

I plan on getting:

1) Harvest Moon: Animal Parade
2) Harvest Moon: Welcome! Wind's Bazaar
3) Harvest Moon: Shining Sun and Friends

I Own:

1) Harvest Moon: Tree of Tranquility (currently playing)
2) Harvest Moon: Island of Happiness

I have owned:

1) Harvest Moon 64
2) Harvest Moon 3
3) Harvest Moon: A wonderful Life
4) Harvest Moon: Another Wonderful Life
5) Harvest Moon: Magical Melody
6) Harvest Moon DS
7) Harvest Moon DS Cute
8) Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town
9) Harvest Moon: More Friends of Mineral Town

I really enjoy playing Harvest Moon: Tree of Tranquility right now. I'm glad I didn't sell it. In my first file I didn't even make it to Summer of year 1, now, in my second file I'm flourishing. I'm in very late Fall of Year 1, and I expect to be married to Toby by Winter Year 1 or Spring Year 2. I have 2 chickens, a silkworm, a lamb, and a foal. I have a level 2 house with the most expensive double bed. And, I have completed all of Toby's heart events, except for the request event. And, I have completed 1 rainbow. I also semi-completed Ben's, because of the second and third rainbows being one, in a sense. I'm also nearly done with my third Rainbow recipe. I have completed both Darren's and Ben's rainbow recipe. I have found one powerberry.~desu

May I join now?~desu

I'm actually not sure, since I started playing Harvest Moon right before they moved onto the newer games. I would say both, since I really enjoyed Harvest Moon 64, which was my first Harvest Moon game, and right now, I am enjoying Harvest Moon: Tree of Tranqulity.

In my Harvest Moon: Tree of Tranqulity I am now on the first of Winter Year 1, and all I need is one more ingredient to finish my third Rainbow recipe. I also got my first duck. And, I won the Harvest Festival with a shortcake that I bought at the Flea Market.

I need help in Harvest Moon Tree of Tranquility. I cannot get to Toucan Island yet, because I have not yet finished Collin's Rainbow Recipe. But, one of the requirements is a banana, which, can only be found on Toucan Island. How do I obtain a banana?

Sorry, I already got the answer from a Harvest Moon site I belong to. (Fogu.com/hm)

Now, I have a duckling and a calf. I named them Opal, and Maple, respectively. Now, I have three rainbows complete. And, I am working on befriending the panda and the mother bear. I am in the middle of winter.

And, I have completed Toby's request event, and he is at nine hearts. I have now met all of the requirements to get married, except I don't have the blue feather. I even activated the event where Hamiliton tells you about the legend of the "Blue bird of Happiness." The strategy guide said that the day after you activate this event you will get a cut scene with the blue bird of Happiness flying towards Caramel Falls. However, I never got that scene. And, the day after Hamiliton's event was the winter thanksgiving festival (Winter 10), and I am now on Winter 15th or 16th. Does the cut scene to obtain the blue feather not happen in Winter? Or do I have to get a level 3 house? And, I already bought the manual/book on parenting and the rattle.

Thank you.

It's in the back of the Pineapple Inn of Toucan Island. Go to the west end of the island when you first get off of the boat. And, then continue upward, right-going east. Soon, you will find a path you can go up.

Here's something that I've been pondering over.

Is there a relationship between the Harvest Moon Gourmet and the Phantom Gourmet? I'm not sure which came first, but I noticed how both of them are decked out in a purple wardrobe and seem to be culinary experts.

If there is no relation, does the color purple have any significance to food?

It was just something that I noticed and was curious about.

Thats fine.

Harvest Moon ToT is, as I've been told very good.
As for a review.
http://au.wii.ign.com/articles/917/917081p1.html

http://au.gamespot.com/wii/action/bokujomonogatari/review.html?tag=tabs;reviews

Even if the review scores aren't that good, if your a true Harvest moon fan, you'll like it.

Ok, thanks. I have noticed to ignore the review score over the years, lol. I got a good portion of family and friends addicted to harvest moon now.
Thanks, I'll have to check it out later when it's not three in the morning.

Hiya~

I may join...but I'm not sure yet. I don't wanna join unless I'm gonna be active. But I do have a question.

See, I've been playing More Friends of Mineral Town for, like, years now. And I really, really like it (I'm gonna be a mommy in a couple months XD) I'm kinda wanting to play another. But, like, I really wanna pick out a good one. And I'd like some recommendations from the bestests.

See, I don't like the whole "ending" thing (I have A Wonderful Life), but I liked the wide spread areas, as well as the interesting character designs (there weren't that many stupid ones, like, Taro from the island one X[ He was stupid looking. I don't have that one, btw). The game was also pretty simple to understand. Like, there were only 3 makers, instead of like, 27. And it was all really straightforward and easy to understand.

I'm leaning toward the Island of Happiness or whatever it's called. But, it seems overcomplicated (sun points, water points or whatever) but I'd also like to know if it shows how many each plant has of those points or how many it needs or whatever. Or how easy it is to understand. But I'd also like to know which one had the mine that you fought crap in. Which one was that, srsly?

Help would be appreciated, thanks.

I highly recommend Island of Happiness and you fought stuff in Magical Melody if I remember correctly. Also if you have a psp or thinking of getting one I also recommend Harvest Moon Boy and Girl, a remake of an older Harvest Moon: Back to Nature.

Since you are replying, you are accepted in the club, but please, please, this is for everyone no one liners.

You can play both genders.
Honestly, I didn't like IoH, for these reasons.


This DS version of the Harvest Moon series relies entirely on the touch screen for interactivity. You must use the stylus pencil to move your character's direction, pick up items, and interact with the other people on the island. The buttons and directional pad are only used for equipped tools


The difficulty level of the game has increased. Your crop profits depend heavily on the unpredictable weather, relationships are harder to build, and new building construction can be incredibly expensive. The old way of upgrading farm tools has also been redone, as increasing your tool's strength comes from attaching Wonderful Stones to it


Instead of collecting 101 Harvest Sprites like in Harvest Moon DS (and DS Cute), Island of Happiness encourages you to develop the island in order to lure various people to move in. There are over 90 people to "collect", with 70 of those being faceless characters that require you complete tasks to unlock.

Which is like a ds version of mFoMt, in a different town and with different people, and if you really liked a guy from Mineral Town you can even marry them, through connecting up to your GBA game. Plus I don't think DS cute ends, I'm not sure about Ioh though....

Sorry for not coming to this for a while. To be honest, I had even forgotten about it.
But here is what I have to report on Harvest Moon, ever since I have been gone:

.... moooooo......


Yeah, that about covers it.
I lost my DS for quite a while (in fact, I found it yesterday... good timing), and when I did find it, I played Ninjatown. But I have the urge to go kill things in Rune Factory now.....

7th July 2009, 2:17 PM
So I have Rune Factory 2 now. I've kinda left it alone though, the series is kind of slow IMO, and fighting monsters is just another chore. Any tips on how to make this more fun?

Not much time, so doing easier topic. ;D
If you plan to get Animal Parade, Who are you going to marry?
Definitely planning on getting it. They have a cute bachelor/ette set, and their island looks positively amazing. D:

Male (ToT): Candace, Harvest Goddess
Female (AP): Chase, Luke, The Wizard (TBH I want to try each bachelor...)

It's going to be hard how to use my 2 files. My sister's going to use one for herself also, so... ugh.

well, I still rather enjoyed the game. Sure they were kinda lazy and could have done a better job on the graphics but I think it's great considering the lack of PS1 out there.

The only reason I like IoH is because it was something different. It is harder and takes longer to do things, but it's easier to get the people than what you think.

Me and Toby are getting married on Spring 1, in Harvest Moon games that is New Years' day. :o However, that will be my Wedding anniversary. So when one more year passes in the game. Is there an option for New Years' Day or does the game just register New Year's Eve? If the game just register's New Years' Eve can I just pick the option for our wedding anniversary?

The reason I am asking this is, because I remember in Harvest Moon 64 I married Elli, and our wedding anniversary was on her birthday. And, then I think in another game it was our child's birthday along with our wedding anniversary.

Also, in Harvest Moon Tree of Tranquility; I know have a calf, my horse reached adulthood, my duckling reached adulthood, a level three house, and a kid (a goat).

I would imagine that you would celebrate it on the same day just at different times. Have your anniversary around noon-ish and the new years celebration later. But this is just a guess, I've never had that problem before.

Usually, on big holidays like new years, it just postpones your wedding. By coincidence, me and Cliffs wedding also fell on New Years, and was postponed to Spring 2nd. At least, that's how it worked in MFoMT. However, on birthdays and stuff, I think it just stays that date.

K.

DS Cute seems to be just a fusion of AnWL and MFoMT. Am I too far off there? And this whole, sprite saving thing seems asinine and retarded. Is it?

Also, does it have the same overall feel of MFoMT? Like, is it as fun? More fun, less fun? Anything irritating I should know about?

Zincspider
8th July 2009, 2:59 AM
Well, seeing as it is a Girl version of DS which was a DS version of AWL, but with the addition of MFoMT bachalors, I have to say:
No

I didn't enjoy DS nearly as much as FoMT, as the controls were weird, and collecting harvest sprites was the most annoying thing I ever had to do. Having to play the dang wash minigame on all your animals each day, to get the full effect, was a washout too.

So, it's a decent game, but not nearly as good as FoMT, or MFoMT. Cute or not.

I recommend getting Tree of Tranquility, in the beginnning it is kinda hard, however all you have to do is farm, and fish and soon you will flourish.

And after every time it gets harder! They made AM/AP a bit harder cus now we have to ring bells with weak little fary people that have been sleeping for who knows how long.

Congratulations on your Harvest Moon wedding!

And Golde, I second how Magical Pokemon and Chihaya said ToT is tiring for the most part, but it's probably the small stamina bar in the beginning and how fast the time passes. You'll have about the time to do one chore an afternoon (the morning is almost strictly watering crops and raising animals, but maybe I was just too big a work nut):
-get to Toucan Island to fish
-harvest stuff around the area
-go mining
-talk to all of the villagers / go to your pet of choice
It's not like Harvest Moon is a rushed game though, you can choose what to do first. Personally I was on a rainbow-crafting rush at the start to get more villagers and places. xD

If you want to play as a male character I suggest Harvest Moon Ds. However, if you want to play as a female character this time I would suggest Harvest Moon DS Cute. In both of the games the gameplay is expansive. (Meaning, there are tons of stuff to do, even after you beat the story line.) And, the controls, in my opinion, seem to be easier, and I think you would enjoy playing one or both of those games.

CUTE. There are a ton of glitches in the normal DS one. I'd think It'd be worth it to play as a girl if you aren't one, but it's your decision.

MFoMT is my favorite HM game, as it is with many others, and I enjoyed Cute almost as much.

I know what you mean, I hate the controls in IoH. It's kept me from going any further than year two. >> Which stinks, because other than that I love all the aspects of the game. They need to at least give us a choice in Sunshine. (It's wierd seeing everone on Fogu say "Sunshine" because that's my name. (: )

I actually picked up my old Cute today, and I am so close to getting married to Gustafa, I can taste it. This will be my first marriage in any game, besides AnWL, where it forces you to marry, and it's really easy. So I am really excited. :D

I just need to get him up about 11,000 more LP (Easy, hot milk is easy.)and get 22 more sprites (Not so easy.).

I really hate the sprites in this game. I've wasted half of the Autumn season trying to get the hidden patches ones, and not one so far. GR!

On the touch screen you just have the DS' buttons within the menu's. (D-pad, A,B ect.)


There are a ton of glitches in the normal DS one.
I think, it depends on which cartirage you get. (Like old version, new version)

I actually like a mix of both. At first when my tools are normal and not upgraded I find it easier to go with animals. And because of that I seems to get a lot of animals. Then later on in the game when my tools are up a few levels I start to grow crops. Thus giving me a healthy mix of both.

I'm the same way, but for me normally later on I start growing more crops than having animals because I find it more tedious to milk 7 or 10 cows a day. Where as if you have your watering can lvl high enough then it makes having multiple plants a breeze ;420;

As much as I love animals, I have to agree with Waterluu, it is tedious milking 7-10 cows daily (espeically w/ the touch screen).

I usually have and equal amount of ducks, chickens, cows, and sheep, four of each. I have yet to go farther into the game where you'd have to get 10 of each.

IMO, crops yield better profit faster. I perfer them, but I just cant play HM without some animals. (:

I tend to start the more agricultural route, mainly because it's cheaper. But then after a full season has gone by, I'll start bringing in animals to my farm. By then, I've typically upgraded most of my tools, bought the "extra tools" (shears and such) and I've got more than half a full stock of food, so when I bring the animals, they are not so much of a burden as they would be in the very beginning.

I do both, but considering how you don't have enough money for a chicken (or a coop) at the start of a game, agriculture always comes earlier. Later on I'll get full livestock, until I don't feel the need to earn that much anymore.

Both. Normally just starting off with crops first, then slowly upgrade to chickens or ducks, then cows. Although, in recent games, I'm been copping more with livestock more often, because of the weather point things. When it rains lucky you, no watering for the day, but now rain to much and bad crops -.-'

That's crazy. And, yeah, I checked my guide and it said there was no way to upgrade it, so I fixed that problem by getting a large cabinet.

And, in Harvest Moon: Tree of Tranquility can your spouse help you out with farm work, or is that only in Harvest Moon Animal Parade?

I have built a chicken house and the log and stone holders (All out of stone!) I have my house upgraded to the 2nd level with all the kitchen stuff. And all my tools are golden (except for the fishing rod)! I'm just in awe with how far I have gotten in the game so far. I just hope that it does not get boring soon..... *prays*

I have built a chicken house and the log and stone holders (All out of stone!) I have my house upgraded to the 2nd level with all the kitchen stuff. And all my tools are golden (except for the fishing rod)! I'm just in awe with how far I have gotten in the game so far. I just hope that it does not get boring soon..... *prays*

I think I should start working on my wife to be but I just can't decide who to choose! It's annoying me because I like all the girls! >.< I should have gotten cute because in that game there are only two cute guys >.< (Rock and Skye by the way)

lmao! to me this game is easy to play and is done really well compared to some of the other ds harvest moon games
I felt the same when I first got the game about who to choose as a wife, so I decided to go for someone different than what I normally go for and married the mermaid.
the only part about the game that I dislike is that it becomes even more difficult to find more sprites after you've found at least 40 of 'em ;325;

That's crazy. And, yeah, I checked my guide and it said there was no way to upgrade it, so I fixed that problem by getting a large cabinet.

And, in Harvest Moon: Tree of Tranquility can your spouse help you out with farm work, or is that only in Harvest Moon Animal Parade?

And, what is the Shining Baumkuchen found at the very bottom of the Mt. Gelato? I don't really understand what it is.

Yeah, it is. I wonder if they can change it to a larger storage instead along with translation... and Owen's oversized head.

The spouse and kids can help you in Animal Parade only, iirc. I'm ttly going to make Chase a househusband, watering the plants and stuff. For some reason I feel cruel if I'd send him and the kids to the mine...

Shining Baumkuchen is supposed to be a dish you can't really eat (since the description calls it "too pretty"). All the villagers love it, so it would be good to give it to your ideal spouse (if you weren't married yet) or someone who is not easily impressed with gifts.

Hint
Effect/How to:Have you noticed that your buildings get torn down during hurricanes? Not Anymore! Just put your cat or dog inside the building, and it will never fall down! Since your dog and cat can't die, the game won't allow the buildings to fall on them

This hint actually does not work. During the Winter I had my dog in one of my bird houses and I thought Yay now the chickens are safe! A few days later the guy comes in and tells me that all four of my chickens are dead. I go looking and find out that my dog is missing! I ran all over the farm just to see if I took him out by mistake but I had no such luck. However, my dog was not dead. A few days later I had another Bird House built and he was inside it. I was so happy to have him back xD

This cheat is for both versions of Harvest Moon DS. However, I never heard of this cheat, and the only similar cheat I heard was for the Greenhouse in Harvest Moon 64, and that cheat actually worked.

I'm really close in-game to getting a gold level fishing rod. And, my fishing experience is at it's maxium. So hopefully I'll be able to catch the Wood Fish soon. I have around 15000 to 16000 gold, and the refined gold needed for an upgrade.

I need your opinion my house space has gotten smaller since I added the large cabinet, so should I upgrade my house to level four?

Well, if you have enough money, and need the space, why not..?

Plus for the hint, I didn't submit it, I forgot who did :S.. lol So, if it doesn't work, I'll remove it from the list. Thanks for this, although unless if anyone can prove it works, maybe I'll leave it on.

How ever, in Harvest Moon DS, I control my weather, so I never have to deal with storms and such. (Saving before going to sleep, in the morning check the weather, if you don't like the weather the next day, reset.)

In Harvest Moon Tree of Tranquility are you able to get rid of the stumps that are left after you chop down the tree with your ax? If so, how?

In my game I now have my fourth rainbow, and I only need the perfect honeydew to complete the fifth and final one, because, thanks to the strategy guide, I started my ingredient hunt for the fifth rainbow in Winter of Year 1. And, I'm ready to obtain my first Ostrich chick.

It is the fourth installment of the Rune Factory series, and it is being workd on by Marvelous in Japan right now. (I think it is 85% complete) And, it is the third Rune Factory game on the Nintendo DS.

I don't. I find the accessories useless, since they don't offer any magical properties. I just sell the gemstones, however right now I'm not mining since I don't need too, as I already found the Lapis lazuli needed for the last Rainbow Recipe. I mainly focus on fishing. I have maxium experience coupled with a gold fishing rod.

In Harvest Moon: Tree of Tranquility how do you get Goddess level tools?

Basically my secret is selling wild grasses I picked in the fields, along with my crops. In the winter months I actually dig in the excavation site for jewelery to sell.

In Harvest Moon Tree of Tranquility I have encountered problems.

1) It is Summer 2 around 10:00 a.m. and today my goat did not give milk to me, but it is in perfect health. I tried to milk it a few more times when I turned on the game this morning. And just to make sure I went to bed without saving, and the next day it gave milk to me. What might have been wrong?

2) In Harvest Moon: Tree of Tranquility who is the seventh arrival on the island? The startegy guide does not say who the seventh arrival is. It only says that the sixth arrival is Taylor, the eighth arrival is Perry, and the ninth arrival is Paolo. And, when the seventh arrival message popped up it told me to check the Brownine Ranch District, I checked but I wasn't able to find the new person. Who is this new arrival?

Hm... I haven't played ToT in a while, I think it may be Gray (since I don't recall any other Brownie Ranch people to meet after the inital opening). You know, the generic Gray/Blue from Harvest Moon. He's not a bachelor in this game though. Check in front of the Brownie Ranch Coop / Barn.

As for the first question, I haven't a clue. o.o

Thank you, I appreciate it. But, I already got both of these questions answered on Fogu.com/hm

Which of thse games are you going to reserve, or at least obtain?

Main Series:

1) Harvest Moon: Animal March (Wii) (Release for America Fall to Winter 2009 or early 2010)
2) Harvest Moon: Sunshine Islands (DS) (Release for America Fall to Winter 2009 or early 2010)
3) Harvest Moon: Welcome! Wind's Bazaar! (DS) (No American release mentioned yet.)
4) Harvest Moon: My Little Shop (WiiWare) (Release for America Fall to Winter 2009 or early 2010)

I'm going to reserve 1 through 3. I can't get number 4 since I don't have WiiWare or Wii Internet acccess.

Spin-offs:

1) Harvest Moon: Rune Factory 3 ~ A Fantasy Harvest Moon~

I'm not going to get this game, since the Harvest Moon: Rune Factory ~ A Fantasy Harvest Moon~ series is too hard for me.

All information on these games can be found here:

Are you talking about Harvest Moon: Magical Melody Wii?

The reason the game belongs on two consoles is: Because, Rising Star of Europe took so long in releasing the game, that, by the time it was ready to be released the Nintendo Gamecube was dead. And, so they ported it off to the Nintendo Wii.

And, now they (Natsume) are shipping the Wii version to North America.

Go into the mines. Now save. Hoe until you find a the stairs/black grass and reload. You can then walk to the same spot where you found the stairs/grass, and it will be there. Save again and then go down the stairs and repeat the process. But do not walk out of the mine. If you do, the mine will reset. So.. Save, find, reload, get/go down, save, find... ect.

The black grass heals your stamina, while saving and reload reduces your stamina usage. You can bring other things that restore stamina, like other grasses, dishes and thoughs XL medince things... lol

1) All you have to do is raise Taoru's friendship level...I think. (Sorry, I haven't played Harvest Moon: Island of Happiness in a while.)

2) Actually, all of those characters are originally from Harvest Moon: Save the Homeland. This new Harvest Moon game for the PSP is called: Harvest Moon: Sugar Villiage and Everyone's Wish, and it is the sequel to Harvest Moon: Save The Homeland.
