    No farming? No HM game would be the same if it didn't have any farming elements in it >_> .

    It isn't the same without harvesting during the time of the Harvest Moon.

    I knew a good wiiware game was too good to be true. Harvest Moon implies "Harvesting". It's just a spinoff.

    I suppose you haven't played Lost Winds, World of Goo and Mega Man 9 then? Or the Art Style series, Bomberman Blast and Maboshi? Granted, I haven't played the latter three yet, but they're supposed to be really good. There's plenty of good WiiWare games, afaic.

    There are more than those, check the essential thread. Haven't updated it in a month or so though but there are quite a lot of good WiiWare games, sure it gets a lot of cheap crap but then so does Live Arcade & PSN.

    This game...dunno.

    When I heard the news, I was very glad. It's way weather worn -- at least the main franchise is. I think offering more HM as a downloadable game folks won't have to invest a lot of money into sounds like a good match for the series. Of course, we don't know the extent of what we'll be getting. Still, it was good news to me.

    Oh yeah.. I actually forgot about all the good titles [​IMG]
    my bad!
    However, the art style series, and maboshi are turndowns for me [​IMG] atleast maboshi... it was too plain for me... tetris or lumines fills my need for those "simple" games...
    but the rest
