Official US Release Date for Tale of Two Towns

The long awaited game for the DS, Harvest Moon Tale of Two Towns (originally called Twin Villages in Japan), will finally arrive soon. The release date is on September 20th, 2011.

The 3DS version's release date of the game is yet to be announced, though Gamestop has estimated it to be September 30th. Both games will be fully developed on the same day, however, Natsume is waiting until more 3DS consoles sell. If you haven't known about the 3DS, Nintendo reduced the price from $249.99 to $169.99 due to poor sales.

I am anxiously waiting for my copy of Tale of Two Towns DS version. I have preordered this game around late-June 2011. This is actually my first video game preorder ever. I usually wait until after the release date to buy the game but Natsume is giving out a limited special edition Alpaca plush if you pre-order at Gamestop.

Harvest Moon... a Chick Game?

So I checked my YT Insite's statistics today and here is what I want to share with you.

I get an average of 1600 views each day. A whopping 75% of my viewers are female and only 25% male. What does this tell you? Well, I still think Harvest Moon is for both male and female gamers...it just appeals to chicks more.

Honestly, I do not know any guy around my school who likes Harvest Moon. When one of my guy classmates saw my youtube channel, he loled at my Harvest Moon addiction. I asked if he knew this series. He said yes. His friend introduced it to him but he didn't like it. And my old friend who I used to play HM FoMT with loves harvest moon, but she's a girl. And my childhood friend who introduced me to Harvest Moon a long time ago (I think 4th-5th grade?) also was a girl.

Well..I give props to guys who admits to liking Harvest Moon!

Okay, let's see...most of my viewers are between the ages of 13-17. I'm 17, so I fall into that category. And there's a small percentage of 18+ yr. old viewers.

Most of my viewers are from the U.S., Canada, and the U.K. A small handful of them are from Indonesia, Germany, Mexico, Australia, Malaysia, Brazil, and the Philippines.

Also, my views are decreasing ever since I stopped posting Harvest Moon videos, but my goal is to revive my channel again. Here are my view counts.

School, Retarded GameStop Employees, & Weekend Video Updates

Friday~ Friday~ Gotta get down on Friday! For the weekend, weekend~
So first week of school is over. My senior year is not as busy as junior year really, I even played my DS today when I havent used it for a year while my younger sis, who just became a junior, spent an all-nighter doing homework for APUSH, and has a project due Monday. (It also happened to me jr. year).
I got my school schedule & felt like posting it up.


Woohoo! ART FIRST PERIOD! FUN FUN FUN. Last year, I had honors physics first period. It was hell. I am not a morning person and I ended up failing that class, but I don't care since its an elective, not a requirement. Calculus...my teacher gives very clear explanations. Mr. Mikasa (Japanese American I believe) was so funny today. He used an analogy of a baby sucking a man's nipple with extraneous solutions! AP stats...okay one of the main reasons why I took that class was to hear my teacher's British accent. APES was fun..we had a quiz today but later on me and my classmates were playing with a teacher's snake. English...teacher is nice but I still hate the subject. I was never good at English (math was easier for me) so I hate to take it every year. Cant stand the essays! But its good that I don't have any essay assigned this weekend, just a simple quickwrite. AP Gov is very useful .And I like all my teachers thus far. (I hated 4 teachers last year.) All my AP classes combined this year is not as intense as APUSH. YAY. So, whenever weekend starts, I will try to update this blog and post one video up every Friday.

So back to the video games. I went to Gamestop literally right after I left school. (It's just a bus ride away) I walk in and this dude somewhat my age who looks to young to work there asks me if I need any help.
I said, "Yes. Do you have Luminous Arc?"
He goes to his coworker behind the counter and asks, "Hey. Do we have..." and he looks back to me and asks, "what is it called again?"
I enunciated "Lu-mi-nous Arc".
He says, "Yea...do we have that game?"
The behind-the-counter guy who sort of reminds me of that fat comic book guy from the Simpsons asks, "DUrr, whats that game called again?"
Oh my gosh...I repeated it 4 times.
He checks the safe behind him and says yea we do have it. Why would they hide that copy away their customers? They could've just but the cover at the DS section...and it was only $7.99.

Here are some pictures of my buys today.

Also Gamestop is having a BUY 2 GET 2 Free Sale on PS2 games ending 9.11.

A Trip to Gamestop

Other than being home all day on the laptop, I went to GameStop to return this game--No More Heroes 2, new and sealed. I would love to play Suda's work, but since I do not own a Wii, I have no use for it. (Though I might buy it again later, after I get a Wii U). I really wanted to play this game because the creator of Harvest Moon, Wada, took part in this project and the trailer looked stunning. The reason I bought it in the first place was because I thought I could borrow a friend's Wii. Well, after buying it I realized I do not know anyone who has a Wii. Really sad..apparently my friends are not gamers.

I also cancelled a preorder for Animal Crossing 3DS for the same reason. I was thinking of getting a 3DS, but there is not much games in it's library, So after getting $19.13 back for NMH2 & the AC 3DS preorder, I bought Rune Factory Frontier for the Wii. Again, no Wii. So I will just resale it to someone at amazon who doesn't have access to Harvest Moon games.

Also there's about 2 days left until school starts and I haven't even finished my summer homework. In fact, I shouldn't be blogging!! But I will start writing and finishing up that paper for that one class tomorrow and finnish reading that summer book...then I'm done. I'm estimating it takes two days. So I will be at the library all day tomorrow for sure. NO MORE PROCRASTINATION!
