Harvest Moon is getting another remake, A Wonderful Life. What are your top 3 Harvest Moon/Story of Seasons games and do you want to see any more remakes?
>>
>>2901183
It's not an RPG.
>>
>getting hyped about harvest moon after souldew valley
Nope don't care
>>
>>2901228
Natsume remakes are soulful as fuck.
A shame they don't have the rights of Harvest Moon
>>
>character customization
>farm customization
>not being limited to planting on 3x3 blocks at a certain location
>mining and fishing worthwhile
>characters say more than 1-2 lines for each friendship level
Basically all the stuff SDV showed us could be done with a game like this. Hopefully they've learned from it somewhat.
>>
>>2901231
The fomt remake was incredibly soulless and low effort. This one looks better though even if I wish everything wasn't so bright
>>
>>2901183
Top three favorites: 64, HoLV, 3oT.
Most desired remake: Actually AWL. I hope it adds a lot of new content to fill out the game after Chapter 1. It's a shame that it's not getting all of the DS content, but DS technically doesn't take place in the same time period and isn't supposed to be the same game.
After AWL, I'd prefer an all new entry, rather than another remake. No game needed it as much as AWL.
>>
>>2901294
I liked Stardew Valley, but didn't like any of the characters. I agree that the ones in SoS could use some work too though.

>not being limited to planting on 3x3 blocks at a certain location
You aren't in some of the games. The latest, Pioneers of Olive Town allows tilling anywhere on the farm.

>mining and fishing worthwhile
I feel like mining has been important in most of the games, since upgrading your tools often (always?) required metals. Fishing could be better, but not sure how. Don't recall fishing much in SDV, but it's been a few years.

>>2901588
I'm actually really glad about AWL too. Something about it just got the atmosphere right. It's one of those titles I think about playing a lot, but end up dropping again quickly. Modernised controls would help. Just doesn't look like we're getting those. In the trailers, you could still only water one tile per action, for example. I'm also worried that it's looking a lot like the recent pastel, flat-looking titles.

>3oT
Glad to see I'm not the only one. Even compared to PoOT it seems really full of content and with clear progression that takes a while. PoOT's town development tasks are laughably easy so far. Glad to see the games on PC finally, but they've not put their best foot forward yet imo.
>>
I'd really like a remake of Save the Homeland. I liked a lot of it, it seemed to be the most radical shift in the series until Rune Factory and it's just a weird, janky HM game.
>>

>>2901228

>>
>>2902153
Sprites. That's the only thing of value that left. Anyone who calls it soulless is just a shitposter or nostalgiafag. The remake offers a much smoother gameplay experience, a better localization, more features, and gives the Mineral Town cast their own characters designs which they should have had from the start.

Updated and future-proofed the chart.
I wonder if players are expecting to pick the same waifu in AWL again, or choose a different one.

Has anyone played the Natsume Harvest Moon games after the split? The first one looked really terrible, mobage tier. After that I stopped following them.

>>2902324
Interesting. I have it on Steam, but haven't had time to play it yet. Will give it a spin sometime.
>>
>>2902341
I havent played the Natsume-made games myself, but I've heard nothing but bad things about them. One game got some "not horrible, just mediocre" reviews, but that's not enough to make me interested. The games are all hideous, and the quality of Natsume's localization leaves no faith in their ability to write or code.
>>
>>2902346
Shame, but unsurprising.
>>
>>2902165
In what way?
Stardew Valley has 131x more active players
Stardew Valley has gotten 41 new mods this week while Rune Factory 2 this month and they werent even good mods that add anything to the game it was just a mod that changes the noise cicada's make and another that slightly changed how you place furniture.
Stardew Valley has more soulful look with its pixel art graphics instead of generic anime 3d game from ps3 of Rune Factory 5.
Stardew Valley has more intresting characters and world that have people coming back for 8 years and keep bringing new players in breaking its old all-time peak while Rune Factory is months after launch and any discussion araund it died and 80% of the playerbase left to go play something better.
>>
>>2901657
I did not know about it. I will actually check it out, how different is it?
>>
>>2902401
Changes off the top of my head:
>you can keep playing past the "ending"
>you can marry any of the original girls or three newly added ones
>a few new non-marriageble characters have been added
>town layout has changed, added new areas/buildings
>festivals added
>there are new "endings" and chains of events to experience
I'm fairly sure there are additional crops and animals too, although farming is still not the primary focus of this entry.
HoLV is very satisfying, character-driven Bokumono experience, imo. It's one of my all-time favorites in the series, even as a big fan of the original.
>>
>>2901231
>Natsume remakes are soulful as fuck

Just started a new save of Trio of Towns on Citra, can't be arsed with my 3DS anymore. Damn, the start is especially slow. No stamina, expensive ass animals. Need to get a cow or something, get some regular income aside from crops. Farming is hard, lads.

>>2902798
Pioneers of Olive Town is decent but not great imo. Not as much content as Trio of Towns, way easier main missions, and worse waifus I think. Personally bought it full price because I want to see more PC ports and I love the series, but objectively the price is a bit high.

Oh man, I’ve these games look comfy and appealing to me. I’ve wanted to try one of them out ever since I saw the debut trailer for Story Of Seasons: Pioneers Of Olive Town, but I missed the launch so I wanted to wait for one of the new farm games coming next year, Summer 2023.
I’m not sure which game to choose. Harvest Moon: The Winds Of Anthos or Story Of Seasons: A Wonderful Life
that of which I know is a remake of what was once called a Harvest Moon game.

Naturally going by names alone, I would choose Story Of Seasons. The name sounds more straightforward and clear on what the game is about. You go through the seasons, farming and living a comfy life with others.
Harvest Moon for some reason sounds like they could mess with the formula a little too much. A possibility with adding too much of a fantasy angle or perhaps the involvement of magic. I would be willing to try.
Decided to skip on Harvestella.
Anyone have any advice for a newcomer? Not really interested in playing older titles. I’ll just look forward to newer ones or remakes of older ones and make sure to purchase one of them day one to give this whole genre a go.
>>
>>2903031
Don't really understand your reasoning. Why would you need to play a game at launch? Why does the name of the game matter?

Anyway, don't buy a new Harvest Moon game. Natsume makes those, and they used to only do the American and European localisation. They suck from what I heard.
Up until A New Beginning, the games were all called Harvest Moon in the West. Then the devs split with Natsume, who kept rights to the title. That's why sometimes the "main line" of games is referred to by the Japanese title, Bokujo Monogatari, or Bokumono for short.

Pioneers of Olive Town isn't a bad starting entry. It's on PC so you have free choice of controller, the controls are modern and tasks easy. It's also on sale right now.

A Wonderful Life likely won't control as nicely as PoOT. For example, in PoOT, your watering can can be upgraded to water up to more than a 3x3 range, allowing you to water I think up to 15 tiles at once with one click of a button. In AWL, unless they change something from the trailers and original gameplay, your watering can only ever waters a single tile. That really eats into your time.
>>
>>2902324
The character designs are all uglier than their originals, not a single one is more appealing. The graphics just look horrible in general, like a cheap mobile game. It was 0 effort put into this game. They removed fun stuff that added immersion for living on a small disconnected town like using the phone at the inn to ring the TV shopping network or carrying the basket to harvest crops. Wild dogs are removed so fencing is basically useless and just a vestigial feature. Its lots of small stuff they completely whiffed on from the original while adding almost nothing that makes it feel so lazy and cheap

That's entirely subjective. I like the new designs. I like that the blacksmith boy is no longer dressed like a village farmboy. I like that the chicken farming boy is no longer a skinny nerd in a welding apron. Marie, Karen, Cliff, and Popuri are all particularly cute in their new, setting-appropriate designs.

Man, I forgot how much I loved Trio of Towns. Just unlocked Kasumi, best waifu in all the games. Helps that she's a teacher like myself. Haven't even played through two seasons and already having a blast. Hopefully the series will recover to this quality after/with AWL.

While none of the games since have topped 3oT, I do feel it's worth saying that I feel none of the game since have been bad. For all the complaints PoOT got and its true shortcomings, I enjoyed my time with it. Recent Bokumono hasn't fallen as low as it was in the DS era.
>>
>>2903453
Not bad, no, just not great. And it's been over six years. The games don't seem to have evolved greatly on a technical level, so it is a bit disappointing that they seem to lack content compared to the last handheld title. But yeah, I enjoyed my time with PoOT overall.

One thing I liked about AWL is that it seemed to have a more somber tone because of it's slightly duller colour palette and the way things were textured and modeled. It's not gloomy but combined with a few in game elements like Marlin treating you like shit and stuff like that couples marriage problems or that guys wife dying or the ending it gave the game more morose feeling that I appreciated; made the goofy elements better imo. Seeing the remake have saturated colour and even more cutesy kind of puts me off.
>>
the new style of graphics they're using looks straight out of a mobile game, even the older games look better.
i don't know why this is. at least the AWL remake looks a little bit better

I always took the title to be ironic. Kind of funny and sad in poetic sort of way. Still, even if you had a shit life you could probably admit there were some good moments on your death bed. I wish there was a Harvest Moon like game that really did just say you're a poor farmer that was dealth a shitty hand and you have to make the best of it; not in a difficult gameplay sort of way but more in a story and aesthetic sort of way. Make you appreciate the little moments of goodness when they happen.
>>
>>2903596
This is exactly what I'm worried about with the new art style. It does look a but more restrained and muted in the trailers than it does in PoOT for example, but still clashes imo.

>>2903684
Really good summary. It is interesting that the series started out with a pretty moderate tone. In the early games, marriage candidates would just marry someone else if you weren't fast enough. It's not until later that the series became this feelgood safe space. Though AWL is probably the most severe example of the darker or more challenging aspects of Bokumono.
>>
>>2904013
>AWL is probably the most severe example of the darker or more challenging aspects of Bokumono.
Darker meaning seeing how they could shit out a clearly unfinished game and call it a full release
Challenging part being avoiding to fall asleep while waiting for your main character to die
>>
>>2903118
It's 10 years old 3DS game, and Special was first released on Switch. By the time PC version came out everyone interested else bought it for console or emulated it. Stardew Valley was released for PC and lives so well due to modding, still, even when put against RF2 it's worse game.
Also remember, niggas didn't even knew about Harvest Moon or Rune Factory before SV came out.
>>
The question is why a remake of a Harvest Moon game instead of expanding upon the last title that was released for the mainline series
>>
>>2904099
It's the era of remakes and reboots. Less risky, cheaper to produce. Sometimes it's worth it, often it's not.

>>2904034
There's no need to be upset.

>>2904168

HM64 does a way better job incorporating realistic melancholy and tragedy into its village, without making the whole village feel disconnected and depressing.
Also, it's not supposed to be a bad thing that marriage candidates "would just marry someone else if you weren't fast enough". Other couples would naturally get together if you neglected to pursue someone eligible while encouraging their alternative romantic interest. It was a great thing when other couples were experiencing first time romance, child-rearing, and other lifestyle changes alongside the protagonist, instead of there being twenty single young men and women in the village who do nothing with their lives if you don't pick them.
>>
>>2904099
Of all the times across videogame history to ask "why remake", this is one of the few times that a remake genuinely ought to be done. AWL is a fondly remembered yet objectively bad game with massive potential for improvement.
>>
>>2904310
There definitely is space for improvement with AWL since it was on the empty side but they didn't need to gut the aesthetic.
>>
Friendly reminder that the Doraemon SoS games are secretly top-tier entries.
>>
>>2904925
Aesthetically, Doraemon looks superb but I know nothing of the franchise and it's the only reason I skipped it. Is the gameplay solid enough to warrant a playthrough? I found the other SoS games frustrating and shallow.
>>
>>2901183
oh damn nigga, You know im dickin the fuck out of ceilia
>>
>>2904970
I think non-Doraemon looks more aesthetic. Doraemon taints the aesthetic with its nerdy looking main character in my opinion but some may think the opposite.
>>
>>2904925
What's special about them?
>>
>>2904925
From what I read about the first one, it was the same as other SoS games except with less features.
>>
>>2904970
>>2905383
>>2905391
It doesn't change up the formula much, but in terms of aesthetics and the town, the first one at least is definitely one of the better entries since the split from Natsume. People got needlessly upset over not being able to marry, but that feature has become a drag on the series.
>>
>>2905425
literally all the SoS games are superior after the natsume split
before that they were making really shitty and tedious games trying to salvage the garbage mechanics of AWL
>>
Best Harvest Moon game
>>
>>2905463
That is a Harvest Stella game.
>>
>>2905463
Worst Rune Factory game, actually
>>
>>2905425
Not that Natsume has anything to do with the quality of the games beyond the localization, but like the other anon said, most of the games after the split ended up being better regardless. SoS and 3oT are better than every handheld game after FoMT up to ANB, combined.
>>
>>2905585
>>2905429
I'm aware of that. I'm saying, of the titles released under the new SoS label, the Doraemon spin offs rank high, at least for me personally. They may not be as feature-rich as the other SoS games, but the aesthetics and the town go a long way in giving the games character. Now, how they rank against the classic HMs is another matter.

I rest my case.
>>
>>2909412
Don't forget that Rune Factory has more in-depth relationships, character events and generally a story/plotline. So its just "Harvest Moon" but more.
>>
>>2909412
Rune Factory largely has shallower farming and ranching mechanics than SoS, which balances out the amount of content between the two series, with Rune Factory bolstered by its combat, dungeon-crawling, and crafting. Still, there's a lot of content variation across the series' titles. SoS has had a lot of features unique to single titles, like the puzzle mining and extensive questlines of HoLV, the achievement-based note collection and land acquisition of MM, etc.
Reducing content to bullet points and making up more for RF when some like "monster taming" is barely more involved than buying livestock in SoS is a careless way to measure the fullness of the series.

>>2909415
>Don't forget that Rune Factory has more in-depth relationships, character events
It literally doesn't. The quality of character depth and events varies from title to title, but overall Rune Factory absolutely does not exceed SoS in this regard.

SoS on the 3DS that is. Great game but the character portraits did not click with me

>>2912726

>>2912729
The character portraits in SoS do kinda suck. They're worse than the official artwork for sure, and not even consistent with it. It's actually not the character designer's fault; she likely had no part in making the in-game portraits for every character.

its a remake of an older much worse game
>>
>>2903684
>>2903707
Most older HM games always have this melancholic feeling, imo. AWL had this the best:
It forced you to actually invest time and effort into it -no room for fuckups-, meaning you (the player) grew an actual emotional connection to the characters.
You need to work hard, and there's a lot of room for mistakes, and there's a time limit -- just like real life. In the end you'll see your life's work laid out before you, and no matter what, hopefully it was a wonderful life, the bitterness of regrets balanced by the sweetness you truly earned.

Tbh, that makes it one of the best game of the series for me. Older (pre-DS era) HM was also a bit gloomier back then.

>>2902566
Innocent Life is really nostalgic to me as well. It was one of the few games where I actually wanted to "stay" and know more of the world. Played it all the time on PSP.
It was less farming sim (eventually, you don't even need to farm anymore), and more adventure, but it worked really well.

You haven't completed AWL
The only message it communicates to you through its setting and gameplay is that suicide is quick and painless while you sleep the years away as literally nothing happens

AWL opinions aside, based Innocent Life enjoyer.

>>2914604
RF3 and RF4 were pretty good when it comes to combat, anon. It's fast paced, responsive and has enough weapon types that play completely different, it's way better than most ARPGs in the market. For a top-down handheld console game it was pretty amazing what they did.
>>
Is trio of towns the best one or i got memed?
>>
>>2914791
It's a good one, for sure. "Best" is subjective.
>>
>>2914604
If I can actually move around and dodge enemy attacks, and attack when I want to, it's a good action combat system.
>>
>>2914791
It's the most modern one afaik, most other SoS games either came before it or are remakes of games that had 1990s game design choices (boriing and shallow)
>>
>>2914832
Pioneers of Olive Town is the most recent one.

This rando’s YouTube channel went over some of the pre-release footage of A Wonderful Life remake so you wouldn’t have to watch the Japanese stream. https://youtu.be/YjmvV9m7KHc

What are we thinking? I think it looks fine/decent/pretty good. Coming from someone who hasn’t played a single farm-sim but wants to get into them with this one.
>>
Has Rune Factory 5 on Switch been redeemed yet? I heard at launch it was a broken mess.
>>
>>2919438
It's fully playable. The performance issues were highly exaggerated at launch, although it doesn't run beautifully.
>>
>>2919438
What >>2919459 said, but honestly, you should get it on Steam, less bugs and better controls
>>
>>2919356
Pretty sure you're the same guy from a few days ago. "We" are thinking the same thing as before. Other games in the series are very likely to be better. Those with nostalgia for AWL will probably like the remake no matter what, unless there's something completely shitting all over the original. Play Trio of Towns for a relatively modern SoS game which is very well-liked. Runs nicely on Citra if you don't have a 3DS.

Fuck that game. The most stressful, uncomfy, farm sim I've ever played.
>>
>>2920344
I've only ever heard great things about ToT wtf
>>
>>2921801
No idea what the guy is talking about. Relationship decay is a regular occurrence in farming sims. Fertilising crops and thereby improving the seeds gained from them is one of the main (though implicit) goals. Literally complaining about farming in a farming game.
>>
>>2921801
Autistic reminder that the acronym for Trio of Towns is "3oT", becuase "ToT" is already used by Tree of Tranquility.
>>
>>2903116
>>2903335
As the other anon said, half your complaints are just subjective and I actually like the new ones, too. Also you're wrong about a number of things. For instance, yes there IS a reason to use fences, it stops grass from spreading so you can have a dedicated section of your farm for grass to feed your cows and shit. They also added things like being able to walk on your crops so you dont have an empty spot in the middle of your 3x3 spread and a breeding mechanic for animals. It's fine if you don't like it, but it's not low effort or soulless.
>>
>>2920344
>wtf dude why do i have to farm on a farming sim
Do you have brain damage?
>>
>>2922145
Ah I wondered why people would sometimes use 3oT. I'll use that from now on, thanks
>>2921851
I have 3oT and SoS to play, which should I play first?
>>
>>2922649
3oT came out after SoS and it's generally considered to be the stronger of the two, although they're both good entries. I don't think it would be hard to go back to SoS after 3oT, so if you think you just want to play one now and you'll play the other later on (becuase this isn't a series typically played back to back), I'd tell you to go for whichever game looks more appealing at a glance. If one game has a character you think you're particularly interested in meeting, go for that game.
>>
>>2922649
I agree with a lot of what >>2922727 says but I'd straight up advise playing Trio of Towns first.
>>
>>2922992
As the person who wrote the original reply, I almost said this too. If you don't have a preference, play 3oT.
>>
>>2920344
>relationship decay
I didn't know this
fuck that

I haven't touched this series in years. Played the shit out of FoMT and the gamecube games when I was a lad. However I see that all the new games have that overly rounded 3d paw patrol aesthetic. Very depressing sirs.
>>

>>2909429
Maybe they fixed things in 5, but I found the farming pitiful in RF4. Your farm is the fucking unused backyard of a castle. It's like they want to cut farming out of the franchise but can't because it's expected.
>>
>>2925162
RF: Oceans also barely had farming in it, it's a shame the gameplay in that one was so jank because it had some good waifus
>>
>>2925162
>but I found the farming pitiful in RF4
The fuck are you talking about

you can upgrade it to be bigger than the town
How does anyone even play RF4 without farming?

I want them to remake the Harvest Moon games from the Wii era. They were all pretty good.
>>
>>2904065
This sounds like cope. I don't have a horse in this race either.
>>
>>2927368
I missed all of them. Which one is your favourite on Wii?
>>
>>2927712
Animal Parade and Tree of Tranquility are closely related, having the same bachelorettes. Tree of Tranquility is the better of the two. Something about the aesthetic and the layout was max comfy. I have to go back and replay them because I'm having trouble recalling either of them in detail.
Rune Factory Frontier is probably one of the most professionally done game in either series. But....runeys. Having a plot line to convince a fat bachelorette to stop being fat is a bonus.

Animal Parade
Friends of Mineral Town
Harvest Moon: Hero of Leaf Valley

I would like a remaster/remake of Animal Parade with faster load times, more events & areas, and more dialogue.
For Hero of Leaf Valley, I would like for there to be a remaster with a story quests profile where you can rewatch all of them. Some of the story quests were beautiful and would be nice to rewatch (e.g., Aurelia's The Tale of Blue Bird).
>>2920344
>>2921801
I didn't like Trio of Towns because it doesn't make sense for there to be three communities with completely different biomes and cultures side-by-side. I like for there to be one big community that you can get close to. I liked Harvest Moon: A New Beginning and Story of Seasons more than ToT.
>>2930147
Beautiful. I remember liking AWL, but it felt a little too slow for me. I hope the remake makes it a bit more streamlined. It seems hard to strike a balance with how long one should live before the tragic, bittersweet end.

Innocent Life should be revisited
>>
>>2931178
I don't think Marvelous can't handle it and make it good. If Innocent Life were remade, I think it would need to have gorgeous visuals to make the most of its exploration-based gameplay and atmospheric strengths. If Marvelous were to make an all-new Innocent Life game with their usual clunkiness, I'm not sure how they would make it worthwhile and still different enough from a normal Bokumono game to have a different name, without rehashing the story of the original.
I'd love to play a beautiful remake that expands on the mechanics and purpose of farming, and adds a lot of character-focused content. Cooking is already an important part of Life's development, so it would be great if, like in Shepherd's Crossing 2, Life could share his cooked meals with other people in town. Life ought to have a lot more interactions with other people, both human and robot. I wish he could have bonded with Vita and Forte more, and they grew alongside him. There were also so many people in town who are never relevant at all, whom Life could have learned something from. The original game has so much obvious potential to be made better.
>>
>>2930147
The utter state of weebshit production values. Top kek.

Josh has been playing the new remake a little. It is less farming-heavy, as expected, but still looks leagues faster to play than the original, which is nice. I liked AWL for its atmosphere, but the controls were really sluggish.

If anyone plays the original Story of Seasons please for the love of God patch that shit. 60FPS if you’re on Citra or the 30FPS fix if you’re on real hardware, otherwise enjoy 20FPS on your farm at all times.
