Hahaha "ths sun". It ain't a real Harvest Moon game without dialogue typos, eh.

The renovation to animals sounds really interesting at least. Added depth to raising animals would be nice - provided it doesn't become a massive time sink that prevents you doing other things. :>

The added personality sounds really interesting and looks like it'll add more color to the game.

ashantiqua definitely worth trying, although I don't know if this game in particular is the best place to start with the series. It's quite drastically different to previous games, with the landscape shaping and all.

My personal favourite is Harvest Moon 64 and it's supposedly the game that came closest to the creator's vision for the series, so I'd recommend that.

Absolutely, you'd be surprised how enjoyable a farming sim/RPG could be. Personally, I'd recommend Harvest Moon: Animal Parade or Magical Melody for consoles, and Harvest Moon DS for handhelds. I haven't played them but the Tale of Two Towns and a New Beginning are pretty good from what I hear.

I'd also recommend HM64 as well, but if want something a little easier (and cheaper) to get a hold of theres HM: Back to Nature for the PS1, which you can download from PSN, or Friends of Mineral Town which is a GBA port.of it.

Theres also the upcoming Story of Seasons, which while technically not "Harvest Moon" is made by Marvelous AQL, the company that makes the Bokujō Monogatari (Farm Story) series, which is what we in the west know as Harvest Moon. The Lost Valley is actually Natsume's own take on the series, which they've been localizing and publishing up until now (and also own the name)

I don't really feel this game... it seems to lack the spirit of the Original games. Natsume should stick to Localization. Xseed is bringing us Story of seasons at least so I won't complain. I think they did an amazing job with Rune Factory 4. I just feel bad for people getting tricked into buying a Harvest Moon game that isn't Bokujou monogatari.
