    Sweet. I could never get into the Harvest Moon series tbh but the Rune Factory games were good. Hopefully there are more dungeons this time around.

    I gotta hurry up and finish both Frontier and 2. I wonder if XSEED will publish this again? If they do, it's most likely going to come out in a year or so after it's Japanese release.

    I loved the first two games. Hopefully, I'll buy a wii soon and buy frontier.

    I could never get into harvest moon games, but I adore Rune Factory games. Now, where's my Luminous Arc 3....

    Ugh. Another one? They really like to milk the Harvest Moon series...

    I did like the first one (not played much of the second yet), if nothing else they are usually great games to base a hack on.

    Loved the first one the second one I didn't bother with as I was busy with Frontier. I would hope there is more to this game though.

    Loved the first, loved the second, and I know I'm gonna love the third. Just hope it does have more dungeons. I would love it even more than the other games if it has, like 20 dungeons or something unlike the previous one with about, 10 (counting Palermo Shrine and the sealed ones). Maybe they could make something like, start as a kid, grow up, get married. Think Sims but with a story and about five generations maybe.

    I think I'm giving ideas?

    I'm going really fast as I just woke up and feel a little lazy, but here are the main points:

    "This game's keywords are "Farm" "Adventure" "Love".....and... "TRANSFORM?!""

    "Your farm has an underground?!"

    "Transforming into a monster is...!?"
    -He does this using a belt, apparently.

    "Turn your crops into adventure partners!"
    -"Active Seed"

    The game is currently 80% complete.

    So yeah, those are the interesting parts.

    Awesome.
    RF1 and 2 are good games, didn't bother with Frontier much though.
    And transforming stuff? Sounds awesome.
    SUPER RADISH ARMY, GO!

    agree with PV and also the fact that FoMT had a unique approach (ie. mines) while IoH just brought new graphics and a few additions but still it is the next best to FoMT
    this on the other hand has only one prob and tht is repetitiveness of gameplay but that is not bad as it seems, gives a little change but requires something more
