Gamestop can be so cruel to our wallets. We try to resist their silly preorder bonuses that come with games, but at times it's too hard
to ignore the temptation.
The most recent battle of wills comes with Gamestop's bonus for Harvest Moon DS Cute.
If you couldn't tell from the picture above, it's a plush cat! That may not seem like a big deal for many of you -- after all, what's another cheap stuffed animal? -- but here at DS Fanboy, we love cats
(especially the "lol" kind). Maybe not as much as we love pugs, but we digress.
We like the Harvest Moon
series anyway, so normally preordering this game wouldn't be an issue. Yet, since two Harvest Moon
games are coming out pretty close to each other, we were hoping to spend our money on Island of Happiness
is essentially the same game as Harvest Moon DS
, except that the main character is a girl rather than a boy (plus, a few other minor
additions). Island of Happiness
, on the other hand, is a completely new game with a Lost in Blue
meets Harvest Moon
We probably won't waver in our decision to stick with Island of Happiness
, but if you're a fan of the franchise and haven't played Harvest Moon DS
yet, this preorder bonus might make the purchase a worthwhile one.
