    So here is yet another HM game, which is what like the 5th not including the Rune Factory games or the Puzzle one. Personally I'd prefer it if they released less and focused on working on one GOOD game instead of these broken poor games the DS has had.

    Looks seems to have improved, giving a more Rune Factory look. I really hope that this is the one that will bring the series back to its greatness on the DS.

    Amen to that. But the games seem to sell no matter what, so, guess they don't care too much.

    Well, Harvest Moon is always nice to have and play, and it'll always be at least a good game, but somehow, I think this is a bit too much for one generation of a handheld..

    This one, by looks, seems the best so far, but it's all actually the same game......This one might be the same as Rune Factory, but without monsters....

    I sure, will check it out, but I don't know...

    Actually that would do for me, I did enjoy Rune Factory but the dungeon crawling parts bored me after a while.

    Found all of the HM boring..

    But Rune Factory had me going for weeks.. Such a good game.. And not many games attract my attention for all that long..

    I reckon I should make a section of the all the games that have kept my attention for more than 10 hours.. [​IMG]

    And how can you have Rune Factory without monsters?? Thats what the game was about!! [​IMG]

    I would play it though

    That's why we're talking about Harvest Moon and not Rune Factory.....

    Harvest Moon is a calm game with kinda "life simulation" and NO MONSTERS.. [​IMG]

    I found first Rune Factory really entertaining, but I didn't play enough to get annoyed by monsters..
    I'm going to play RF 2 when it comes for sure....and this Harvest Moon, because it looks very pretty...But how it'll turn out....who knows? We'll have to wait and see..

    "Harvest Moon : Welcome to the Wind Bazaar!"

    Man. That's a bad name.

    EDIT: Holy hell! When I do force myself to read, I read nice stuff!

    Wireless Co-op! Up to four players! Doesn't mention if it's multi-card or download play, but my bet is on Multi-card.

    And apparently you can use the windmill.

    I hope it's actually decent. Oh well, Shining Sun and Friends should be good, by the way.

    Haven't tried Island of Happiness yet, so I'll get around to that soon..

    But I really wish they would port the first Harvest Moon game over to a newer system.

    This one looks good. Please leave the D-Pad on this one also. Stylus control sucks.

    It would make me overly happy if they'd actually call this one "Yet Another New Harvest Moon."

    Mebbe i'll start a petition for this.

    Never got into these games. ...what i SHOULD say is, i've never checked out these games. Are they decent?

    The last good one was Friends of Mineral Town on the GBA. The series use to be very very good on SNES, GBC & N64. The next Wii one out next week is said to be a return to form.
