>husbando looks like a guy from a dating sim
>waifu looks like a girl from a little girls' game
SoS/BM confirmed otome only. Only doing waifus because girls want to be the little boy too.
If those are both from Wes(?) village, I wonder if the candidates from the other towns will be as stereotyped as them (for lack of a better word) I'm betting on an Iroha clone
I think they might be shooting to make all the female faces as uguuuu as possible this time around or something.
Well thats fucking stupid, the girls look dumb as is I get its japan but come on make a strong and mature female character for once im never the SJW type but after a while you just get sick of the same steamy shit shoved in your face.
What we seem to know so far from Famitsu.
>Lulukoko Town: Mysterious, exotic, resort-type seaside town. You can get southern fruits and ocean produce
>Tsuyukusa Town: Nostalgic, Asian-influenced town with a river and a bridge. Paddy crops. You feel like you want to wear a kimono there
>Wes Town: This is the first town you are invited to (implies that there is some kind of unlock order). IT IS A MINING TOWN
Wes town, like "west town" so maybe like an American wild west kind of setting.
Awful to say, but strong and mature characters don't sell the same in Japan. Gotta blame the market for not taking more risks.
Shame since I want some more bulky male characters in too.
The new game style reminds me of how the art tried going through some "cutesy" period during Sunshine Islands, Grand Bazaar and the older HM titles. I don't hate it but man they had something going on with Story of Seasons / Connect to a New Land.
Same for the guys, I want some mature looking ones for once, with a decent personality instead of going "uh so what would girls like?" "I don't know it's probably fine if we barely give them any personality"
I want the minimum age to be bumped up because 3+ like the EU version of SoS is a disgrace. Little kids don't get how to properly play this anyway and the nice thing about RF is that it felt less like it was made for little kids.
We'll never have an SoS game where it's 16+, and the relationships feel like more then just handholding and oops a baby somehow. Not to mention interesting and varied marriage candidates that aren't just a bland character design with an overused trope stapled on top of it.
It would be glorious to have some variety in the way people are, like there can be all they faggy guys so why not some butch girls maybe some girls that look older that you can marry, more personality types and what not.
That's probably the reason why I can't play through RF. The RPG stuff and characters still seem a tad cliche, which I guess is a consequence of the setting but it felt weird.
Although it had its own problems, Animal Parade had some very nice relationships. It felt not too adult, yet still mature enough, I loved it.
Let's be honest though, romance is just one part of the games. They'd have to spend more time than they are now concentrated on a single game in order to have something close to a good dating sim, unless the farming suffers.
Basically. It's the same reason why FE Awakening and Fates added waifu / husbando stuff with a high degree of variety but with mostly fluctuating quality in terms of how well written the supports are which can range from crap to mediocre.
To be fair with FE13 and 14, they have dozens of marriage candidates altogether and there's enough of those that make for interesting characters despite having a 10th of the lines the average marriage candidate in SoS has.
I'm not saying the supports in those games (or rather just fe:a since I'm waiting for the english release for fe:Fates to learn anything about it) are fantastic, but for the amount of time they could give to each character it turned out pretty decent if you ask me.
Basically, yeah. When you have multiple writers and lots of characters, shit has to get done. And sometimes, the rush makes people not put as much effort. Funny enough, that's the opposite end of the spectrum, with gameplay being put above one part that people who want the dating sim to be deep, suffer.
>there can't be qt muscles
I bet you don't like Dante either.
Im not american believe it or not, not everyone on 4Chan is.
Alot of the marriage candidates in SoS and most of harvest moon are pushing it with how they look, Lillie looks 14 for Christ sake most look near 16-18 only one looks mature not even you the player character looks above 16-17.
Do you mean Cliff? He'll leave in first year winter permanently if you don't do a certain event in, I think fall. The only other moving out I can think of is Kai who comes and goes each summer.
The thing is no one wants bara per say, we just want less troupe filled characters, we want variety in the marriage candidates,candidates are always underweight childlike idiots. I want some smart characters, some slightly fat ones, some strong ones some mature ones not just same old, same old that gets boring theres nothing wrong with a woman who can take charge or a man who is more rough and tumble round the edges.
Look we dont live in the middle east 14 year olds dont get married unless there some slut who gets into child pregnancy.
>using cutesy anime style as means of determining how old a fictional character looks or is
>disregarding the fact artstyle can convey these things differently and are subject to different interpretations
There was a goofball in NeoGaf last I heard who said some character in Dragon's Dogma with big tits and a mature build / design looked like a kid for whatever reason. There's no use trying to argue semantics with artstyle.
A lot of anime moms in anime/manga/games look young as heck when they could be canonically 50 (i.e. Natsuhi from Umineko).
This is a very prudish country -- polls show that about 2/3rds of Americans think porn is bad, for example. I'm not squeamish about that sort of thing though. For example, if there was a nudist Harvest Moon announced, I'd probably be fine with it, but most in this country would probably flip their shit.
Then maybe they should try a different artstyle, also better personalitys.
America is the country of ashamed of there bodies, like yes there are plenty that dont care mostly younger people who do post nudes and dont fuss over nudity in media, but alot of the older ones seem to absolutely hate there bodies which they shouldent all bodies are beautiful its natural and natural aint always bad.
I think I see why America has so many SJWs crying about "objectification" and "sexualization" (read: exposing the body).
Maybe that's it. Maybe there'll be more cameos -- maybe even some of the original cast?
Different thing, anon. Take a social issues class, they explain it way better than I could. Don't bring in that topic here though, c'mon.
I don't think they'd bring in the original cast, honestly. I'm expecting more of a remake or something of an old game, if anything.
Many americans are prudish, so they think sexy is bad because it's a sin (conservative religious types) or problematic (tumblrites).
>social issues class
Anyway, I think it's looking like a ToTT type game?
God damn, this thread is so choke full of normals it hurts.
Please remember that this game is made by the jp and mostly for jp. No one cares about what you want or about the fact that you're socially conditioned to prefer older people.
Man, this might be the first game that the Protag has relayives that are ACTUAL CHARACTERS IN THE GAME.
And, for the life of me, did they change the art style again? It seems more of like an otome game than the previous entry. Very shōjo-esque.
You should go for Karen. Save her from the horrible fate of being married to Rick that pathetic loser. He's also a childhood friend and they're just not supposed to win their love, it's unnatural
I hate the fact that you have to çuck someone so you can marry and breed. I liked Mary, but Gray was really a bro and I'd hate to ruin their budding romance just because I just happen to fancy the same girl as he does.
I think so, been ages since i played. But Kai comes first summer and leaves last, doesn't he? She travels with him.
I didn't even know Bianca could leave after summer. Her event to stay is so easy, i don't think i can possibly avoid it if i tried
Marvelous is all about taking steps backward
Appealing to women, in general. Might or might not include homoerotic relationships.
Yeah, I get it, it's more popular for women, and they're facing stiff competition from mobile games, but they're alienating the male audience in the process. Also, I liked the pastel chalk coloring in SoS. This artstyle is like ANB all over again.
Tough luck. Gay marriage is still not mainstream in Nippland. Adding that to the game basically means that they're making a statement, and that's something Marvelous wouldn't do in fear of backlash (and in turn, poor sales).
That would also make every bachelor/ette a potential bisexual, which will not really sit well to some people. That might be why all clothing and hairstles are unisex, so that you have something close to gay dating while Marvelous can skirt around the issue.
>there needs to be some diversity
Kill yourself tumblr whale
You can be "gay married" start as a girl and customize her to look male. All the stuff is useable by either character.
Not to mention children are important to the game so they can't have you go fagging it up and not reproducing.
I've been trying to get arthur to marry me for 3 in game years. I'm about ready to dump him and pursue Dylas.
He's fucking thirstier than Dylas is. The only one thirstier than him is fucking Kiel.
Not even them, but really anon?
You don't want things to be more diverse, instead of flower girl, quiet girl, and genki girl? You got issues, dog.
At least things are looking up, with how much more homo stuff there is now. Maybe in a couple of years. I honestly just want to see more interactions between spouses in general for SoS, since it still seems like there could be more.
Why the fuck would i want that, im fine with chocolate but thats a bit much.
All i want is some varied body shapes and personalitys and to have a bit more to dialogue, the men and women in this game are so cliche its boring.
What Marvelous really needs to do is copy Rune Factory, specifically the cast
Yeah because I found it wasn't for me about 20 hours in and then just turboed to Licorice because that was the only thing I had any interest in.
Entire 2nd year I pretty much woke up, took care of my 1 cow and 1 chicken, watered Cabbage, Soybeans, and Flax, and then went to bed unless I needed to reup one of those fields.
Never bothered unlocking the last 2 traders, never decorated in town, only got into making clothing to see her different dialogues with it.
Even if it took me 5 years of waiting for her events to pop
Would not have put up with that in SoS
>Gray was really a bro and I'd hate to ruin their budding romance just because I just happen to fancy the same girl as he does.
If he isn't a bro after you ntr him, he wasn't a bro in the first place. Until he puts a ring on it, she's free game.
The time is coming. ANB had a ton of fujobait. Looks like this new game is going full otome. I predict within the decade they'll just have everyone be bi and go with it because fujobucks.
And don't forget the chronic indecisiveness where she just zones right out and the functional high where she doesn't remember a thing while working.
>You will never get so comfy with Clorica that she she shares with you her secret stash
>You will never use some of that stash to develop the most wonderful and elevating strain that then blows her goddamn mind
>The two of you will never have the best baked breeze-shooting/cuddling/lewd fun imaginable, occasionally inviting others over to join the fun and make things more interesting/kinky
So since I finally got CFW working on my 3DS.
Which of these games are worth pirating?
Harvest Moon The lost Valley?
Rune Factory 4?
In SoS does editing the areas in town do anything beneficial for you, like raise FP or something? Or is it mainly just so you can kinda create the town the way you want it (which is cool in its own right).
I've had it happen a few times were people were confused I actually still bought games instead of downloading them.
I mean for fucks sake if I want my niche farming simulator to continue existing I should buy it. If I don't I sure as hell have no reason to complain about no RF5.
Google Edit Combos. You can make trade countries pay more for each product you ship, discounts for every thing you buy from TCs and easy FP increase for wild animals, townspeople, or livestock.
I used to pirate games before, when I didn't have the means to earn money. Now that I earn money, I spend a part of it on games I like. Even I bought some games I used to pirate (when it goes on sale. Thanks Steam).
I actually don't get people who still pirate even though they have the capacity to buy a game. They have a myriad of reasons, but I think they're just excuses to justify not parting some cash on a game.
Exactly, and I don't mind it when people use it to try a franchise out without spending big buck on it, but so many people find it justified.
I used to pirate games too, and still do once in a while but overall when I have the money, I'm buying the actual game.
Unlike the music industry your average game doesn't have 30 concerts or commercial deals etc. Sure bigger franchises sell merchandise directly and that's great but with something like Harvest moon or rune factory you really should buy it because that's all they have.
Characters aren't interesting coming from Rune Factory and limited dialogue compared to RF.
Tons of the game's content boils down to cosmetic decorating which doesn't interest me.
Day-to-day maintenance of animals and crops gets tedious
Felt no desire to make fancy dishes or upgrade crop levels because everyone will respond to them the same as half-star items.
That's not to say it's a bad game for people who want the slow and steady farm life, but anything I wanted I could get pretty damn quickly even playing on the higher difficulty. It didn't help that I couldn't find a high level goal I was really interested in. Once you have your flax dynasty you can buy practically anything. So I just set the goal of acquiring delicious Licorice and called it a day once I was done.

Top jokes, good sir
mmm that sounds vaguely familiar.
I should feel ashamed.
I've played RF3 so many times I should know what's up lmao.
Zaid lives in the desert with Karuna right?
Haven't played RF4 too much. Got to some point and couldn't progress.
Have to play them again fugg.
>mfw the second marriage event happens the morning after the firefly festival on its own
I-I'm not worthy of such good fortune.
Of course, even the world knows that /rfhmg/ never lies.
Trust me, many brave pioneers have left for Gensokyo and Balamb garden using this super secret trick the government don't want you to know about
I disagree. In RF3, i had pretty much everyone at max before the first summer was over. But in RFF, only a single girl is 4 fp 3 hp, while the rest is anywhere between but below despite daily chats and favorite gifts.

In fucking bundles.
What this anon says.
That fat fucking nigger Reggie says "hurr da small one won't sell cuz the nips with shit taste want the big one"
Fuck I hate that fat faggot.
I just want my n3DS small G-d Dammit! ;___;
I notice that the graphics of SoS and ANB look the same. Different 3DS games have a different look and feel to them (somewhat), but SoS and ANB both look like they could be different parts of the same game, if that makes any sense.
I see you have no dedication although i still would love a new 3DS exclusive story of seasons game.
The bundle is with a VC code and 3 plates. That's not much more than standalone. If they find it not worth marketing, and give a chance to get it at all, then why wouldn't you just get it and sell the extras?
I wanted a N3DS so bad, I got a black JP one. And when I saw the AC bundle, I got that one too. Works out well with since the black N3DS model isn't out here yet anyways.
Have you used an XL before?
how would you say the screen compares size wise?
I have both the Zelda 3DS and 3DS XL
I know they bumped up the screen size a bit on the n3DS.
Will it be eye rape?
Also the AC has 3 plates?
I thought it only had two?
Isabelle, and that big town scene.
This Seeds of Memory trailer should be in the OP:
On the subject, what does everyone think of SoM?
This spits on the face of harvest moon.
I tried the MH N3DSXL from my baby brother's friend, it's very heavy.The screen is alright, I guess?
I say just play with what feels comfortable. The reason I absolutely love the N3DS is because of how perfectly it fits in my small hands.
And oops, you're right. I got confused that my black N3DS came with a black cover, so forgot that the AC one doesn't come with the white.
Welp, Looks like the Harvest Moon name's been killed. Hopefully most people realise that SoS is the real farming game. And why even use that Celia pic instead of something that's actually from Seeds of Memories?
I knew that it's not the same series anymore, but why iOS?
Like another anon said, Seeds Of Memories is an apt title -- memories of HM the way it used to be (and still is over on the SoS side).
I tried growing a tree in RF4 and now that its at 100% its hit 0hp and looks pretty dodge, did I fuck up?
>I knew that it's not the same series anymore, but why iOS?
Why do any video game companies make IOS games? There is a market for it. You have Farmville or whatever it's called, so maybe they're thinking they can grab on to it's coattails.
Perfumes are for use on the bee hives, it upgrades the quality of honey.
Be warned though, bee keeping isn't all that intuitive. If you want to make honey, best to start in early spring, because bees die out during winter and you have to start over in spring.
maybe I too would have enjoyed it had I not been born with tits that desire other tits and a cripplying need to fill the lonely void with farm waifu witches.
someone should at least translate ds cute. fucking /u/. step up your game already.
I heard there was a bug in Frontier that majorly slowed down the HP gain in general, and you might have it. I'm barely in .Fall 1, and even have Kross at 5+ FP, with four of the waifus at 9+.
Might be. In a previous version of Dolphin, the HP rate was extremely slow, barely nudging it past 1 during an entire season.
This new version however, feels trice as fast compared to that. Might still be an emulator issue or even iso issue. But i like it anyway. Gives the game some proper sense of time passage instead of turboclearing because i've become too good at these games.
I've been fishing relentlessly every day since I got my fishing pole. I'll never lose another fishing contest again, and I'll make sure that Fritz won't win a single event in my SoS world.
So I had a pair of gold boots with the same water-walking trait as water shoes. But when I upgraded my new boots with some the trait didn't pass over. How many times will I have to upgrade with water shoes, or is it possible?
Harvest Moon is dead
Long live Story of Seasons
>Harvest Moon is dead
Not to me -- I just started playing FoMT, for example.
But as a series, the last good game with the HM title is (arguably) ANB. (if you can get past the issues)
I would've had a shred of respect for Natsume if they'd just shelf the name Harvest Moon. But no, they're milking the name until it runs dry. They're hoping and praying that consumers will not notice the difference.
Fuck them butthurt faggots.
The style of the overworld isn't great to me but the sprite work is really good. I think a lot of the low detail has to do with frame rate issues too, they sometimes have tons of shit on screen and the game slows down a lot.
Their hair is longer towards the top of their head, not that long but still.
I'm more concerned that the cow has blonde hair, I hate having to constantly reroll for black hair so it looks "more like a cow" in the newer games.
He has a fiance. She's a model, because he can't marry anyone who isn't at least as beautiful as he.
buttblasted fag mad because he's uglier than flowers.
Are you okay? I'm just parodying. Learn to take a joke.
So I grew Pineapple, scything and raising it in level over and over for the Summer Harvest Festival only to find it couldn't be entered because I "must use a plant you grew in your own garden." This isn't the first time it's happened. I grew it in the right extension field, could that be the reason it happened? None of the pineapples I grew were eligible for entry.
After some research apparently you can't enter fruit. The last time this happened it was a strawberry.
Another harvest festival lost.
>mfw SOS's zoom button
Literally what is the point if it doesn't even change the angle. You can't see shit
Speaking of the zoom function on SoS, what does everyone have theirs at? I use the second higest, you can still see plenty of the surroundings and you are able to see the details of everything, best of both worlds.
I forgot how fun "Tides of Destiny" is. Put it down for a few months after getting Etrian Odyssey Untold 1 and just started back up today. I like the farming mechanics in it, I know a lot of people don't, but I like taming monsters and then getting back to the barn and seeing what they can grow.
You will be a shipping god, and no one can stop you.
>that yuge UI
Almost as bad as the Nintendo Wii games.
So an unknown number of people may think that HM has jumped the shark at Lost Valley and this "SoS" is some kind of HM ripoff. I hope this doesn't cause SoS to fail in the West.
It's easy to cheese the game with golden linen cloth and golden cotton cloth. I propose a no silver/golden/black/white cloth challenge (final name pending).
Details are as follows:
>maximum one stack of silver/golden/black/white linen/cotton cloth each. other cloth colors for linen/cotton are exempt
>no selling of silver/golden/black/white linen/cotton cloth. the rest of the colors are exempt
>animal-based cloths are exempted from the rule
You use a wand on certain spots in the soil. They make sprouts. Then you get monster buddies to grow the crops for you. What grows depends on what monster is there, with more than one crop grown per monster (at least sometimes). And like the failtastic Runey system, you need to keep the island stocked with certain kinds of spirits, but unlike the Runeys, there's only one kind as far as farming is concerned, and they work like the compost bin in RF4 (such a noble role) instead of a suicidal ecosystem.
Doesn't sound that bad. I kinda like it. It's trying something different. Gonna give it a shot when i'm done with Frontier.
I'm easily pleased anyway. I don't mind the runey system in frontier, so i doubt i'll suffer any irritation from Tides
I just started it last night and it was kind of rough to get into.
However I'm intrigued by the structure of the game, which is
you spend the first part of the game wooing a girl and getting married, then have children. After the time skip you play as your child and I'm told the "real game" begins.
That alone is enough to make me grit my teeth and slog through the terrible voice acting, the slow animations, and ITEM NAMES in all caps.
This could be the place as there's that trailer above. But anyway, on Firefox, videos often crash and go to this static saying "An error occured. Please try again later."
I like the camera to be free like it is in Tides, although I really like an even more free camera like in Mario 64.
>decide to marry Kiel
>got Leon recently
>that sexy deep voice
>he keeps making remarks suggesting he might dick me at any moment
>urges of slut rising
How do I keep it together so I can marry pure Kiel?
So "Seeds of Memory" came out:
Anyone gonna try it? I really don't like the Natsume brand of HM lately, and it looks ugly, but I'll probably still grab it to have a HM game on my tablet other than the emulated games.
Kiel/Vishnal/Arthur flirt aggressively early on and Kiel gets super goddamn mopey and passive-aggressive after you reject his advances.
>I know you have a lover, but did you also know that I-
>Oops! I can't believe I was about to say that!
Finally got Elise's paddy to myself. Feels good.
Not even dating any of the girls yet, and I feel like I've already beat the game just because I have all the fields.
Congrats, soon to be mom/dad.
I could definitely be hitched right now if I wanted to, I already got Angela at red, but I've decided against picking her. Agate and Elise are my two favorites, and I'd like to see all of Elise's heart events before I pick one... Of course, I can't see those until this coming winter, which sucks.
But I know if I start dating Agate I won't be able to bring myself to break her heart, so I've kept that ring in my wardrobe for safekeeping.
In the meantime I'll work on obtaining five star crops and befriending the animals.
Very poorly. I went a bit overboard, since the lease on this field lasts for so long.
Yeah I like her a lot, and if I had more save slots, I'd have a file where I marry her, but I've only got two shots.
I started with the intention of going /u/ with Elise, but Agate reminds me a lot of my irl sweetheart and I'm tempted to change course entirely.
I'll probably start my second file once I unlock tropical on my main, and marry Fritz, since he's the only husbando who isn't boring as fuck/a shit.
Does the PAL version of Harvest Moon DS have all the bugs fixed? I know the jap version got the bugs fixed and the NA version remains forever fucked but I can't find conclusive information on the PAL version.
Also, I heard there is an emulated version of Harvest Moon DS that had all the bugs fixed. Anyone know where I might find it?
Thanks in advance. I tried to find this stuff myself and was unsuccessful.
Played it for about an hour so far, not as bad as I thought it would be but I can't see this being a really addictive game, the npc's are flat and boring as fuck so far.
>finally reach bottom floor of Rune Prana
>no tricks or traps, just outclassed beyond belief
I have to make new gear for 3 people. All those fucking rune crystals.
>beat the siren boss only to have the loot drop in the pool
How does one avoid this?
No, that's how the original is.
>after you beat the whole fucking game
You realize the there is two halfs, the 1st generation and 2nd generation. You spend the rest of the game as a child, and the 1st generation can be beaten way faster than the 2nd can.
Reminder that 2 is the best rune factory title for plot
Reminder that 1 is the best rune factory title for waifus/MC
Reminder that 3 is the worst rune factory title in all areas

I'm doing this for my NG+ since I just finished the main story on my main save.
The question is who to court this time.
Yea. You get a minor perk when you start a new file after you finished the main story.
>followed by something subjective
I agree with you but I've corrected enough papers with that same mistake to allow someone to repeat it, sorry.
Debating whether to play Frontier or just restart 4, but having to wait for RNG again would be fucked.
It was a main feature (and storyline) in ANB. As in, you're building a town from scratch.
Might be a variation from the previous games since you only get a set area to work on, and no room for customization.
I think the town-building mechanic in ANB is kind of nice.
>you can't hear Forte yelling "final shot" during climax
>no special gallery to unlock upon marriage or dating
I remember talking about that sort of thing just after RF4 came out here.
>Returned to the franchise because I liked SoS art style and basic farming like old HM instead of all the bullshit of DS games
>New game is back to the bullshit and DS games art style
Why would they do this to me. Does Marvelous hate me?
Aside from EU getting the EU version of SoS, and the new game announcement, it's pretty much been the same -- Dolce bumping, waifuposting, all that good stuff.
Marvelous hates all of us
I agree though, the whole thing about harvest moon/SOS going "back to its roots" or whatever really made me think they were gonna go back to the simplicity and good mechanics the older games had
Yes, they had much more basic gameplay, but they were still enjoyable, and the characters pretty good.
Melody is still my favorite wife.
It's a shame, I was excited for the new game until I started reading more about it.
You fertilize everyday until it works. It's more noticeable for some plants because they can get more of it before you have to harvest them.
Ideally you don't want to speed up their growth so they can get more fertilizer.
Also, make sure not to harvest the crops that your leveling together with the ones you're not. It will round down the star points.
I was under the impression you just fertilized once like in the harvest moon games. worked from 1/2 star to 1 star anyway
>Also, make sure not to harvest the crops that your leveling together with the ones you're not. It will round down the star points.
Does that really happen? I've never seen anything like that with animal products.
This is how fertilizers work, use it everyday. And like the other anon said, don't stack your fertilized crops with the non-fertilized ones.
There's a "secret" star point stat that is reflected in the star levels. Each star level (1/2 star) is 30 star points. Fertilizer only gives 5/3/1 star points (see the above-linked google doc), so you have to apply it multiple times to go up a star level. The game averages out the star points of all items of the same star level, so if you fertilize one plot of a crop that you have multiple plots of, and they are all the same star level at harvest (you didn't have enough time to grow the one a star level), then you will lose at least half of the progress you made on the one. This is why you should make seeds of the one you are fertilizing first, before you harvest the rest of them.
Thanks I could of sworn I didn't see anything about it i guess I'm just blind.. Anyway the new models look really good I hope they have better customization options this time around
