While Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town has done a great job of incorporating new ideas while maintaining the standard farming practices, Harvest Moon: One World has gone a different route, and it somewhat pays off.

 

More Thoughts From Me #262: Welcome Outriders

blank Yesterday I checked out the Outriders demo for the Playstation 4. I heard the game described as “Mass Effect meets Gears of War” online somewhere. I have some thoughts on that and what I played of the demo so far. Outriders is an action game set on a far off planet where some humans have found a lot more than they bargained for thanks to a strange anomaly. The game is sort of like Mass Effect but its mostly like…

 
 

The State of State of Play

blank Let’s be honest – this week’s State of Play was just okay. The recent general Nintendo Direct wasn’t much better. What happening with these update videos, and why do they keep disappointing? My first instinct was that this was an expectation problem. If you’re hoping to see your first glimpse of God of War: Ragnarok, you’re not going to be overjoyed by the biggest news being a piece of DLC for a year old game. But shouldn’t that be obvious?…

Can Harvest Moon and Story of Seasons Coexist in the Same Launch Window?

blank Once both Harvest Moon: One World and Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town launch in March 2021, the next few months are going to be very interesting for both franchises. In my opinion, as someone who has invested dozens upon dozens of hours into these types of games, it's pretty difficult to have multiple different games on the go, and when you do, one will always take precedents. So the real question becomes - can Harvest Moon and Story of Seasons coexist in the same launch window?
