I also loved Rune Factory 3. It had some great improvements although it was probably the shortest Rune Factory I played.It may have something to do with the fact that I spent quite a while in the bonus dungeon by the record room.
I like the fact the artwork went back to the Rune Factory 1 and Frontier style. I am already eagerly awaiting Oceans.
Since the main character is half sheep half human does that mean one of his parents...messed around with a sheep?
