Are you looking forward for the friends of mineral town remake?
why did they go with that artstyle? its not bad but its generic as fuck
>>470078535Why Friends of Mineral Town? Why not the PS2 port of Wonderful Life with the extra content so we can finally play a version that doesn't run at 2 fps?
>>470078852Because much like VtmB, marketers constantly scour the internet looking for cult favorites to milk as potential sequels. FoMT just happens to be one of the most praised (whether deservedly or not) games in the Harvest Moon series, so of course the suits are going to use it as the base.
>>470078535That's supposed to be Popuri? They sucked all the SOUL out of my waifu.
>>470078652I'm will not defend the artstyle but popuri looks cute. What they did to Karen on the other hand it's a shame.
>>470079348Did she fucked the chickens?
OLD GOODNEW BADUNGA BUNGA
>>470079348That's what the kana says. Where did her tits go?
Please don't ruin Mary
>>470078652At some point their art direction started going in a bad direction, i wonder why.
>>470078535I can't believe this is the same artist as Harvest Moon 64. How does your style actually get worse with experience?
>>470079582i don't know, popuri looks like those generic characters you see on the front of those notebooks for girls, old popuri kinda looks like a dragon ball character>>470079870poor mary was so was never cute... i don't think they'll be able to ruin her
Those japanese lessons really helped
>>470078535Somewhat, there are a lot of ways it can go wrong gameplay wise, not to mention that it's being developed by some team unrelated to harvest moon.
>>470078535>mfw still like popuri even in her new artstyleShe cute bros.
>>470078535I'm only buying it if i get to marry the girl MC
>>470078535I like it.
>>470080067What do pic related says?
>>470078535I hate it.
>>470079909Story of Seasons on 3ds had great 2d art.
>>470078535>Furigana>Simple sentencesIs this good for learning?
>>470078535Can you fuck her mom in this one?
>>470080403Love me some big dick, see me in the barn later for some action.
They really fucked up the redesigns.
>using the modern HM art style>but keep the MCs the same so they clash horribly>they've already fucked up Karen and heavily altered PopuriI'll probably end up getting it because I'm starved from some classic HM game, but I don't see this panning out well. If they destroy my Ann, there's going to be hell to pay.
>>470080532The mom doesn't look as cute in this version.
Nah the game looks really cute, you're just rabid nostalgiafags, except nu-Karen, i can't defend that.
Side by side comparison.
>>470080849There's no art yet, but here's new Ann's model. You decide.
>>470081163I unironically prefer new Popuri more, not a fand of hair bands.
>>470081419Of course I forget the picture like some kind of chump.
>>470080551anon this is a game for children
>>470081163See, that's not so bad. It's a change, for sure, but you can still identify her as Popuri.>>470079582I wouldn't even have known that was Karen unless they had said so. She doesn't look anything like a boozer.
>>470080403Really, thanks. Something you ought to have is a partner! I am not very sure about the second half, what do you think about the translation?
>>470081560looks fat with that dress
>>470079870I don't think anyone has to worry much about Mary, Elli, or Kai, at least judging from the backs of their models. They look pretty similar to their original looks, except Mary's got pig-tails now.
>>470081574Anon, no child plays Harvest Moon games, this is mainly for adult men, old women and or the autistic.
>>470081560>dressBad sign already.
>>470078535Not particularly. The original was a simple masterpiece and it's still worth replaying if I'm ever in the mood for it. I don't really like the new designs or visuals. Other than a little bit of QoL and some new content there's not much they could do to improve it in my eyes. Plus with Natsume owning the original localization it might not even be possible to bring to the West unless they rewrite and rename absolutely everything or work out something with them.
>>470081821>pigtailsSo not only they will not ruin the design, but actually improve it? I can't wait for this game.
I'm waiting for the new SoS entry>>470082041They already renamed it to Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town
>>470078535Popuri is loose by all the dicking from Kai
Shit, they made him handsome now.
>>470081069hope they include the modern cow as an easter egg just like in ToT you can get the classic one
>>470082120AWL was comfy, but I've never managed to make it past Y4. If I could live in any vidya location Forget-me-not Valley would be it.
But what about gay marriages?All Std.Valley fans want gay marriage, they need to make this as good as Stardew.They should literally just sell the series to Stardews devs
>>470082376I miss those big ass glasses anime characters had in the 90s/early 2000s.
Game really looks like Magical Melody
>>470078535THATS NOT POPURIFUCKING HACKS
>>470082489I will only accept lesbian marriages. Gay marriages are for faggots.
>>470082489>Stardews devsThe whole thing was made by one man with a little bit of Chucklefuck doing whatever it is that they do. I followed Stardew since it was announced and it took forever for him to finish the game which is why it's as good as it is. Probably wouldn't be reasonable to expect much more out of him for a while.
>>470082249My family is openly racist and because of that when i was younger i thought that Kai was a wife beater, that's why i ended up marrying popuri in my first playthrough. Around blacks never relax i guess.
>>470081163>"let's remove popuri and put strawberry shortcake on her place"I refuse
>>470082120AWL was so damn comfy, I can hardly stand it.
>>470083307How did you feel about it's remake Harvest Moon DS?
>>470083695HMDS - the definitive kino HM experience
>>470083695Amazing potential squandered by countless bugs, a few gamebreaking, and locking certain mechanics and other cool shit behind stupidly high amounts of grinding and filler. Marrying a FoMT cutie ending your game is really shitty, too. Plus you can't really capture the serene peace and beauty of Forget-Me-Not Valley with pixels.
>>470081069You're rightShe looks CUTER
>>470083695HMDS was the most complete HM for me, lots of content and marriage candidates above all, shame on the bugs but i know they got patched on a 1.1 version.
brehs, I'm feeling that farming game itch.. replay Rune Factory 4 or replay Stardew Valley?
>>470084026>game releases in Japan>has some bugs>Japan quickly gets a revised version fixing those bugs>Natsume in their infinite wisdom decide to use the initial version to translate>NA version releases with bugs that were fixed in Japan, and it's own exclusive bugs, some game breaking, because of Natsume's incompetenceReally glad they dropped Natsume. Too bad about the brand name thing though.
>>470082489And you should sell yourself to Phillipino drug dealers, yet here you are
>>470078535I just 100% Light of Hope. 270 hours on a single save game just to get all the crops and cooking down. I have zero interest in this genre anymore. I don't care if it's the real Harvest Moon. I'm done. Fuck this.
>>470083695Gameplay wise it was closer to FoMT than AWL. Basically FoMT but in Forget-me-not, but it didn't translate very well since Forget-me-not wasn't designed for 2D or that style of gameplay. It's always nice to see the peoole of Forget-me-not though. And there's a lot of weird filler and bugs. Like >>470084026 said.
>>470084653>Light of Hope
>Probably no more rival marriages because waifufags will reeeee they could possibly get cucked.Why don't they just let you play eugenics simulator with the leftovers and decide who marries who? Push Cliff towards dating any other girl that isn't Ann or something. nuFEfags sure loved it.
>>470084653The mobile game? Why?
>>470078535Look how they massacred my waifu
>>470085242It's on Steam for like $5.
>>470078535what's the point of remakes that have decades of graphical improvements, but they decide to piss it all away for a terrible artstyle?
>>470084653>I don't care if it's the real Harvest MoonDon't worry it's not
>>470085364I meant Mineral Town.
>>470085173Would be nice, but I'm pretty sure Nip waifufags go ballistic nowadays at the thought of a love interest interacting with any male that isn't a self-insert. Dating sims are some kind of sacred territory and HM has always been half dating sim.
>>470083307>that one time when you just wanted to play AWL all weekend, but your mom makes you go to some abstinence church retreat for teens and yanks out the power cord to your PS while you're saving and corrupting your year 4 save file it still hurts
>>470078535I'm looking forward to my death.
>>470085745I can't remember which company it was, but there was one that died over including used goods in an eroge. Something about snapped discs.
>>470086743That's bullshit. They're not used goods, they're just more experienced and can provide more fun sexytimes than pure maidens.
>Pop Funko 3d modelsI hate it
>>470084653Why the fuck did you put so much time in a shitty Chinese-knockoff-tier fake game made by Natsume?
>>470086743>>470086931Kakyuusei 2. Took me forever to figure that out. But it was NTR that angered the Nips which is definitely understandable. NTR has no place anywhere.
>>470088484And now NTR is probably the most popular type of eroge in Japan. How the times change. I wish they would change back.
>>470084653>>470085293>I have zero interest in this genre anymore. I don't care if it's the real Harvest Moon. I'm done. Fuck thisSo you purposely bought Blarvest Bloon and for some reason put 270 hours in it and now blame Harvest Moon for it?
>>470086743>To start, the biggest bomb of the entire game and what makes the game such a huge legendary deal is THE MAIN HEROINE, Saimon Tamaki (or Simon Tamaki). Look at her damned "main heroine" atmosphere look on her design and one can identify that she definitely is the main heroine focus for the game.Oh,that and she's childhoodfriends with Rouma.>She is a legend because the game starts with her and her childhood+sexfriend Rouma having sex, and then she breaks the news to him that she broke up a while ago with her boyfriend. Apparently she went through alot with him. We are never made clear whether Tamaki had sex with Rouma first or her boyfriend (still need further clarification on their relationship).>As a main heroine of the standard eroge era, she was a infamous legend for being "netoried" away from her boyfriend by Rouma's enjoyable sexual acts. SHE WAS ALREADY IN A RELATIONSHIP OMIGOSH WHAT BLASPHEMY IS THIS OF A MAIN HEROINE!?!? Ahem. While having anal sex with Rouma was a first, we are never shown any visible hints that she had Rouma as her first (redundant repetition for effect). Keep in mind, this is one of ELF's earlier works in its growing stage and is the reason why we have such confusion over the purity of heroines (b/c ELF at that point still hadn't gone down the complete NTR/Netori road).>Normally, main heroines in standard eroges are pure and ready for the protagonist to defile. However, there are times when this tradition is broken; Kakyuusei 2 was one of these times. At this point in time, ELF company was still a developing group... it hadn't yet decided to go 99% down the NTR/NETORI themed road. And thus the reason why Kakyuusei 2 is one of their "prototypes" in a way; quite popular actually, Kakyuusei 2 was. >On a side note, other heroines like the teacher heroines and musician heroine are only half confirmed to be virgin or non-virgin
>>470081574Love me some cucumber, see me in the barn later so I can harvest some.
>>470086743>>470088484That was a special case, Kakyuusei 2 took many people by surprise, that's why the backlash was that strong. At least that's what I heard. There has always been plenty of NTR and slutty girl porn in Japan.Too bad it happened so long ago, it would have been fascinatingly hilarious to watch the entire shitshow happen live.
Who is this game even for? "Let's ruin the demake of a great game that also happened to be great so we can bank off the nostalgia of the very few people who will recognize what we're doing right away? It's not like anyone knows we've run the franchise into the ground already!"
>>470088661I don't get either perspective on NTR. Cuck or cucker, either way your wasting your time with a whore.>>470088878>there's pasta made specifically for itIs it obscure or not? Google failed me trying to figure out the snapped disc thing.
>>470089335It's a comment by a sperg on vndb. I cut half of it because it was 4k words long
>>470078535What the fuck did they do to my wife?
>>470086931But aren’t used goods pretty much roast beef city? Also wouldn’t you want to make your own slut-bitch instead of using someone else’s?
>>470082586Me too, i like that cute nerd look
This thread will probably be dead when I wake up but here you go.
I've never played Harvest Moon/Story of Seasons, would this remake be a good introduction?
>>470089728And silhouettes of the new designs for the others so far.
>>470078535Yeah actually. Between this, RF4, and RF5 getting announced I'll probably get a Switch.
>>470089650>>470089728>Don't mind the girls' redesigns.>Carter and Jeff are what upset me most.Guess I'm gay now.
>>470089774Play the older titles if you can. 64 and BTN are your best bets.
>>470079348Next they'll remove her acceptance of weeds.
>>470079582Why does the Japanese keep making tomboy characters more girly in recent years
Here's the real question: Will it include the AWL link connecton content?
>>470089435I think it's just genetics. Some girls are just roast beefy. Some madlad should document trying to get an innie to be roast beefy to prove otherwise.
>>470089880Both Carter and Jeff look like teenagers who are always hanging out around a store after school let's out now.>>470089975Ann's new design at least indicates she still has some pants but I agree that she still looks a bit too girly.
>>470090092That implies effort unfortunately, so no. Sorry bud.
>>470090092Maybe. Wasn't it just the cabin and Van? It would make sense to keep the cabin and change the unlock requirements, and Van would still work as a special merchant that show up occasionally.
>>470089784>Elli practically unchangedPhew.
>>470090301She's gonna have "ayy lmao" face and we both know it. Know that I, too, hurt brother.
>there will never be a more mature Harvest Moon/Rune Factory with a more contemporary artstyle and darker undertones/side-storiesWhat I would give for no fuccbois and sexier girls.
>>470085745They realise these aren't real people right?
>>470090673Maybe we're the people that aren't real people
>>470090673Whoa we got a Harvard level genius over here
>>470090943I wish I wasn’t real
>>470090673Don't get between a neet and his png image.
>>470091008You aren't. At least not in the way that you think you are.
>>470089784Mary's change is actually really nice but I'm still apprehensive about Ann. Who's the one all the way to the right?
Hope i get to murder that corrupt faggot Thomas again by sicking my dog at the cuck
>>470092480That was in DS, dude.
>>470092157new candidate, 1 for each gender
>>470090621? But HMBtN and 64 had lots of dark undertones and side stories. From lynch mobs to suicides to alcoholism and abuse
>>470092831no, the goddess and Kappa are alr revealed
What if they change the story so the childhood friend is the newly added girl?Maybe they will change the story for the girl version to be similar to boy version as well.
>>470093225That story element wasn't in FoMT, anon.
>>470094058>filename says btn
>>470094132because they cut the singing part from BTN
Looks like a soulless mobile chink game made with bought assets.
>>470079582https://www.siliconera.com/2019/07/11/story-of-seasons-friends-of-mineral-towns-character-designer-talks-about-the-remake/It does make sense why they changed it, I never knew BTN/FoMT just reused 64s character designs in different rolesStill don't like them though
>>470089435LmaoHow can you believe that when a fuckton of porn actresses have innies>>470090102 is right, it's all genetics
I see that Natsume is shitting on the carcass of Harvest Moon, once again,
>>470081163No bodice no buy.
>>470097853It's not Natsume.
>>470092634I want one with a different artstyle, one that compliments those undertones sooner than contrasts. HM's/RF's/SoS's childlike artstyle really don't do the series any justice.
>>470089650They ruined the Harvest Goddess. Please don't tell me they butchered Elli's design too.
>>470083307We won't have a lovely wife like these girls because modern Girls are garbage with no ethic and they hate being feminine
Will this game finally end the mess with the Harvest Moon and Story of Seasons names?
This thread made me want to play another HM aside for BtN or FoMT.Which is the best one between DS, Sunshine Islands, and Hero of Leaf Valley?
>>470099193Even if they were alike what makes you think they’d marry you? desu
>>470099893Pretty sure its still SoS over here when it comes out so no.
>>470082376But will he still be racist?
>>470100228>Even if they were alike what makes you think they’d marry you?I'd presume that the idea operates under the assumption that either:>They will strive to improve themselves due to there being higher quality women available>They would have a better quality upbringing to offset their comparatively shit oneOr some combination thereof, though that's assuming genetic factors aren't largely in play.
>>470100096Leaf valleys probably the most unique of the bunch, DS even the patched one has a very questionable translation, and i cant remember sunshine islands at all.
>>470094058I thought this was meant to be your future wife
>>470082489>>470082815Whats up with the stardew talk lately?
>>470100826There was a steam sale like, 3 days ago
>>470100770That's why I said they might change the story a bit.
>>470100385Indeed anon. I think Marvellous chose to do this remake just because out of spite to Natsume. It's the most well known Harvest Moon after all. Once the most unwary fans realize Harvest Moon is called Story of Seasons they'll drop Harvest Moon for good.I hope
>>470100890Oh, ok. Makes sense. Thanks anon.
>>470101642I fgiured Back to Nature, 64 or even the SNES one (I really need to play that) would be more well known.
>>470101812BTN has too many competitor, but FoMT is literally on top 5 games in GBA.
>>470100770>the new girl drop hints that she's your childhood friend>no regular heart event with her, instead you get flashback scene with her, with red heart event shows that you promised to marry her in the future>From her heart events too, you learned that you actually played with all the other girl in town, though not to the extent with your real childhood friend (that's why everyone claimed that they are the girl from back then)>rival marriage is still in, but if you don't marry her, she will stay alone.
>>470101812The snes one is the definition of comfy, I really recommend you anon!Pic related me and my bitches
>>470103218I hate that you could have two kids in the first one then that wasn't brought back for a while.
>>470080403Thanks nig.You need to have sex!
>>470103531I never got to play HM64 and BtN because the artstyle compared to the original snes game was off to me and I still have to play SoS.I loved the first one but the game is way too short for its own good. It was nice seeing your child but suddenly the game ends after that.The Snes game is the definition of short and sweet. Everything in that game was all around good and I kept wishing it had more things to do. Star Night Festival had a great music.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e9NXmfYHAEg&list=PLirSddeMOYZ6JRokWiQLgPnWR3rL2mNTm&index=14
>we needed a 4th version of this gameIsn't back to nature, friends of mineral town, and boy and girl all the same game?
>>470089650>>470089728this cant be real, looks like some shitty deviantart thing.i know most of you retards fap to shadman but if you cant see how this is trash you might actually be retarded for real
>>470104571The first one felt like a demo in a sense. There's a solid game there, but it never reached it's potential which they hit with the 64/BtN/FoMT. Somewhat like a tech demo, or a genre demo.
>>470078535is it coming to pc like the anime story of seasons game?
>>470104975Blame the zoomershttps://www.siliconera.com/2019/07/11/story-of-seasons-friends-of-mineral-towns-character-designer-talks-about-the-remake/I personally think the new Karen is cute
>>470078852>that doesn't run at 2 fps?the gamecube version>>470079582>went from looking like a slut to looking like a slut
>>470097663>designer for every BokuMono game except ToT and APOh, so that's why those ones were good
>>470079582>Went from semen slurping drunk to a normal human bean
>>470078535I hate remakes like this that change the game from charming pixel art to cheap shitty 3d. For example secret of mana and superstar saga.
>>470100826heres my stardew valley review
>>470102487>canon girlUgh, no thanks
New Pops is a qt but I'm not digging the new Karen. Not like I'd ever marry Karen though.
>>470105791But Karen is cute, CUTE ! Or was at least
>>470082869This guy knows what's up
>>470105791most people went for karen because she was the easiest one
>>470080403"Really, thank you. Lovers should take charge, don't you think?"
>>470081636Maybe more context is needed to translate it better? Motsu without context could mean multiple things.
>natsume makes rip offs with a shitty art style>/v/ puts it on full blast>original devs make a remake with a shitty art style>/v/ eats it up???
>>470106535>Wake up>Shove a giant rice ball or dumpling or w/e it was in face and scarf it down in like two bites>Time to do some farming!
>>470106901natume rip'offs play like shitalmost as bad as stardew valley
>>470081163thanks i hate it
>>470106901At least the game is the same, art style aside. That's the difference
Looks like a 3DS game from 2012. Sick of this low poly garbage with shitty lighting
>>470105776Nobody's forcing you to marry the canon girl, Just look at Mist, Mana and Shara.
>>470107549They all fucking sucked, too. A game that takes its romance options seriously shouldn't highlight only one.
>>470107715Childhood friend ain't that much advantage these days.
>>470106559>本当に、ありがとう。>持つべきものは恋人、ね!>Really, thank you.>It's great to have a sweetheart, isn't it!Play more eroge, dekinai-san...
>>470108460He just "localized" it like all shitter companies do
>>470080501Hell yeah man.Start studying now and if you learn a decent amount of vocab/kanji/grammar, you can use the game to continue learning.
>>470078535no because they screwed my girl ann over and she no longer looks like a tomboy with braided her and overalls instead they replaced her with a souless girly girl design so instead i have bought a copy of the original on ebay which i will be playing instead on my gba
>>470081996>thisthe director doesn't get her character at all and just decided to make her some generic girly girl like there isn't already enough of those in fiction and video game and even in the harvest moon mineral town games.
>>470108532True, pretty sure he's never heard the saying 持つべきものは友 and just guessed.Honestly though, they eigo version will probably pull some dumb shit exactly like he posted because translation quality control in general has done a full 180 and sucks ass lately. What fucking happened?
>>470109997>What the fuck happened>Implying it hasn't always been shit with large liberties takenIf anything it's gotten better over the years. WD flatout rewrote sections and inserted jokes that didn't belong not have any parallel on the original text and people defend it to this day. Thank fuck they died in the 90s
>>470089928no pls nothat's my master plan to marry her
>>470111276WD had some audacity at least, to put things like pic related in their games.
I think I'd have liked a less vibrant-coloured artstyle but I don't think it's that bad. The portraits and characters themselves are good but the town and everything looks more cartoon-y than a regular farm. Kind of like comparing Story of Seasons to Rune Factory colours. I could just be remembering the original FoMT wrong though and it was actually pretty bright. Can't wait to save and reset until I win the chicken fighting competition in the first year.
>>470083695Will the remake allow me to marry a grill from FOMT without it being a game over while the girl version don't have this issue?yes I'm still mad after all these years
>can't play as dense Harem romcom characterdamn it marvelous
Ann is the only legit loli left is the height ratio here is any indication.
