Harvest Moon: Island of Happiness
« on: August 30, 2008, 07:32:51 pm »
Well, I'm enjoying the game far too much to not talk about it with other forumites who might have gotten it.

I managed to work around the Stylus only type controls.

I'm rather like the backstory and the changing environment. I played Friends of Mineral town intensely. The entire playable area seems so static and non-changing. It's great how the island here grows with you.

This game made me grow a beard and grow 6 inch fingernails because I played it too much. I have no idea why I love it so much.

im not playing this game until someone tells me how to manage inventory properly...

at first it was a bit annoying but then i picked up my 1st supply of turnips and then i noticed that you have to put every turnip to XYAB to trow it in....there just HAS to be another way...cant you change the controls to clasic?

i also dislike that you put everything in your rucksack automaticly...
and your stamina runs out 10 times as fast...but i guess you gain it over time or something

I really liked Friends of Mineral Town, you think it's better that or at least just as fun?

I've been hearing a lot of complaints about the fullness bar. But it has never bothered me. I eat so many grasses just to have enough stamina to do what I want to everyday that my fullness bar never falls below 75%.

The stamina bar, on the other hand, has been a pain. Has anyone encountered any power berries or anything similar yet?

Edit: That was weird, I must have accidently locked it.

I discovered that awhile ago.

Ended up restarting my file. So now in summer year 1.

I'm finding it difficult to decide on which wife. Shall I go for the Witch Princess just because it's "hard" to do. It seems most people go for Julia. Chelsea just seems to easy to befriend once unlocked.

Decisions decisions. What did you guys decide on?

I had no trouble getting in good with the Witch Princess, the others seem impossible to me though.

Chelsea huh?

She seems harder to unlock than some other girls, but rather easy to get afterwards. Apparently there isn't a gift that she won't love. Even weeds.

I'm thinking Sabrina might be the hardest. She's obtainable after shipping a lot of ore. To me, mining is very difficult in this game. One of the more difficult tasks in the game. Perhaps her.

Though, I think I'll aim for chelsea anyway. Then I'll go through all the events to have the other girls marry their respective others and keep them all in town, rather than them moving out when I ignore them.
