Rune Factory: Oceans has some pretty fast load times. Darth Paper Boy
That more or less covers this week's news as far as I know. But don't just take my word for it.


This week we celebrate the RF3 release properly and show this one off. If I remember, it was done kinda soon after RF3's release, so it turned out pretty well I think. Unfortuantely, the artist didn't actually do much more art... though if you're a fan of Raven/Toona, the rest all feature her!

Rune Factory 3 release! And other stuff! Darth Paper Boy
Seems like, for once, Natsume managed to get a release out without major push backs! Wow! For those in North America, go seek out your game... or wait for the mail. Depending.

In other news, Rune Factory Oceans has gotten a few updates. Some new characters have been announced, and you can read more about it here.


I think it's time to do another of these, and this time a little bit interesting. These are chocolates made by the appropriately named "happydesserttime" and feature not only the most recognizable group of girls, but also some of the ever present barnyard animals. I think this is not only our first edible art update, but also the first one readily up for sale! Check it out!

Buncha news Darth Paper Boy
Though I mostly stick to art, apparently I gotta make some more interesting posts now. Anyway, starting with the most important (to the site anyway)...

All of our content is being converted to wiki
Well, that's not entirely true. It already was. It's just hasn't been shown on the front page or anything. The wiki can be found here and it's still a bit ugly since most of it was just ported straight over. We've got a buncha templates ready already and improving just takes a bit of effort. It is completely open to editing, so please join in!

Harvest Moon/Rune Factory related news
Notably, Rune Factory 3 is up for pre-order now, Rune Factory Oceans has apparently been announced for PS3 and Wii, but there's little information except Famitsu and a siliconera post, HM64 isn't coming to the virtual console though BtN is being looked into, and the PC HM game is apparently having a beta, but for Japan only. How unfair.

In the art department...
'cause I have to. Anyone who was interested has probably noticed that the Rune Factory Art Book scans haven't been coming as often as they should. Or at all. This is mostly because of a combination of laziness and a slew of random computer problems preventing me from scanning. The latest of which has decided to destroy my harddrive completely.

However, fans may be interested in the artist of the series's blog right now. He's gotten into posting art more often, as well as posting about some Western HM things. Though I can't read it very well, it sure seems interesting.

And finally, ClassicTyler has uploaded all of the music from HM64, Tree of Tranquility, and Animal Parade to listen to on Youtube. Quite a lovely listen.

Grand Bazaar is here! HMFarmer
For those of you who don't know, Grand Bazaar has been released in North America today! After the pushback, fans should be pleased to know it's finally here.

Rune Factory Artist Spotlight #8 Darth Paper Boy

More Rune Factory art! This time we've got a pretty good landscape sort of thing going with a character from the upcoming (eventually-ish) Rune Factory 3! I feel ashamed for not remembering her name... but the picture is quite nice anyway. Most notable is the use of color I think.

I've finished scanning thelast text heavy pages to the forum, but still no translations have happened. I guess they're neat to look at at least.
