Microsoft isn't really involved at all. If they were, Sony wouldn't have managed to get all the timed exclusives and whatnot. That being said, I also wouldn't be surprised to eventually see a PC version after the game has had enough time to move some consoles.

Dedicated fans have the least reason to be upset other than some empathy for the original published/developer. They already know which of the two is the "real" game in the series so the name on the box shouldn't make much difference as long as they get another instalment.

Except, it isn't about the dedicated fans as much as the regular fans that don't read about this kind of stuff and will simply buy the game titled "Harvest Moon." True fans of a series want as many people as possible to enjoy their favorite franchise so the franchise continues to thrive.

I've been sharing this story with every customer at my job that seems like they would enjoy the Harvest Moon games.

I suppose I should post something here since I haven't updated my gaming status in a while.

Playing Wildstar a lot still. Got my main up to level 31 now, currently doing the Bio-Domes on the moon, which is my second favorite area in the game (my favorite is the Squirg swamp). Best part of the Bio-Domes is how perfectly the team managed to blend nature and crazy advanced tech in both visuals and sound design.

Also working through Borderlands 2, Witch and the Hundred Knight, and Dynasty Warriors 8.

Finally, I decided to start playing Valkyrie Crusade (iOS CCG) again for the first time in a year. Falling right back into it and loving the changes that have been made since I last logged in.

I watched an LP and it looks fantastic, sadly I can't afford it right now though.

Great, now I'm reminded of the hours I spent with Battlefield 2142. :P Kinda miss that game. Wonder if it's on Steam?

EDIT: It's not available anywhere. :T

I get genuinely upset when people say that 2142 was when the series started to go downhill. I thought that game was just as fun, if not more fun, than Battlefield 2.

My biggest beef with Arkham City is the thug chatter... you're trying to listen to plot-important dialogue, and thugs keep interrupting with inane chatter. Or you're trying a specific challenge repeatedly, getting more frustrated each time, and the same three conversations playing over and over aren't helping.

i also feel like the straight-up combat sections get more and more tiresome the more thugs the game throws at you at once. The stalker sections are still amazing, though. And the catwoman bits make me wish Rocksteady would give Selina her own game. Arkham games meet Thief? I would play that in a heartbeat.

I only just started getting into the series, but I imagine Dynasty Warriors would be a pretty fun game to play when you're not feeling good.

Meh, I'll wait for the pre release hype train to slow down before I get too excited about this. Looking at Titanfall and the crazy amount of hype that got, followed by the astonishing vanishing act not long after release. Heck, I had to type "game about mechs" into wikipedia just to remember what it was called.
Titanfall is still doing very well....idk where you're hanging out to be comoletely oblivious to it aside from sony-preferred areas.

I work at Gamestop, and all of our regular customers who bought Titanfall have since traded it in.

I'm still somewhere in the middle of Chapter 5. I just couldn't stomach the boredom, and the knowledge that there's two more chapters of that is not helping motivate me to finish.
25  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: BEST game you bought on a WHIM and LOVED <3 on: July 06, 2014, 10:55:38 PM
Depending on your definition of buying on a "whim," you could say that's how I buy most of my games. For example, I picked up Valkyria Chronicles when I saw it on sale while browsing for some games to play on my brand new PS3 and that became my favorite game of all time. But I had heard good things about it before, so I can't really say I didn't expect to love it.

However, if you only count games I hadn't heard a thing about before, or had no previous experience with the franchise, series, or characters, then that narrows down the list quite a bit:

Dark Cloud 2 - Even though I don't remember the exact details around my purchase of DC2, this was still back when I didn't really pay a lot of attention to games media, so I hadn't heard anything about it. I recognized the name from somewhere, but that's about it. So I bought it and at first didn't like it. The main character was some annoying kid in overalls running around a city with an incredibly annoying piece of music playing. But the longer I played the more I loved it, and it's one of my favorite games on the PS2.

Golden Sun - All I had seen aside from the boxart for this game was artwork of the world map. But it brought back feelings from retro SNES RPG's, so I picked it up and was happy that the turn based battle system had that classic feel down quite well. The psynergy puzzles were just surprising cherries on top.

I'll post again if I think of more good examples.

I'm double posting because my last post was well over a week ago and thus an "edit" seems improper.

I gave some more time to Battle Princess and I feel a bit warmer toward the title. In a mindless "90's fantasy anime" sort of way, the tone is very satisfying if your in the mood for that.

As for the mechanics, they are growing on me too. You really can't approach this game like you would a typical side-scrolling rpg-lite hack and slash. Once I figured that out, things began to feel MUCH better.

Is anyone else playing/enjoying (or even hating) this by chance or am I the lone princess here?

I bought it, but I haven't played too much of it because I find it incredibly difficult.
27  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Zelda Musou on: July 04, 2014, 02:37:12 PM
The game is going to have a genuine plot, so perhaps the TP focus is based around when the story is supposed to take place in relation to other titles? Just a guess.
28  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: A Game Journal Reborn on: July 04, 2014, 09:52:03 AM
The thing that bothered me with Lost Odyssey was that battles were both long and horribly frequent.

At least with Persona 2 you could just spam fusion spells and have the battle over in at most 2 turns.

The battles were also only rewarding for a brief period of time, since experience in the game scales with your level.
29  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Zelda Musou on: July 02, 2014, 11:23:57 PM
Anyone else wondering what sort of soundtrack this game is going to have? Would love to hear some battle remixes of non-battle Zelda classics. Imagining just blasting through waves of Gerudo to a bombastic version of Gerudo Valley and can't stop smiling.

Allow me to chime in with my obligatory comment about how I never thought much of any of the Mana games anyway. Secret of Mana was pretty good, but still manages to fall pretty low on my favorite SNES RPGs.
