Natsume's latest title, Hometown Story, is now available for the Nintendo 3DS. Designed by Yasuhiro Wada, creator of the Harvest Moon series, the game features more than 100 characters in the player's hometown with whom to meet and interact.
I want to play it, but with so many games to play this month, I'll wait for a couple of months.
I hear bad things about this game.. I'm going wait for reviews.
Let me start by saying that I love every Harvest Moon game and Rune Factory. I received this game today and I've been playing it for about 8 hours now. It is absolutely terrible. It's NOTHING like Harvest Moon. The graphics are bubbly and boring, the camera angles make me run into walls constantly, the music is making my ears bleed. Seriously, there is no soundtrack. The same song plays non-stop as you have people shopping in your store. And your store is open from 6am-12am with no way to close it during the day, so if you run out to talk to people or collect items, your customers are sitting there waiting for you to cash them out. There's also no way to give gifts or even hold an item outside of your store unless you run out of your store while holding it. I've also been playing for, like I said, 7 hours nonstop and still haven't even been able to increase my store size once. AND there is nothing to do other than sell items and talk to people...you can't farm, you have no animals, you can't mine or chop down trees or fish or anything. There is also about a 2 minute tutorial in the beginning and then they throw you to the wolves. They don't even tell you what some symbols mean in your daily ledger. It's a complete disaster, and seriously, shame on Natsume for shipping it like this. Horrible game. The only reason I've played it for so long was because I was waiting for it to get better, which it never did. I feel completely ripped off for having spent $40 on this. This is literally the first review I've ever written on Amazon because I'm so upset about it. I've wasted months waiting for this to come out...and it's absolutely a slap in the face. Doesn't deserve to be mentioned in the same category with Harvest Moon.
CAPITALISM, HO! opps wrong game sorry
