Latest Farming Video Game News

June Mobage Events, E3 Details, and DoraeSoS JP TV Commercial | Posted at 01:14 PM on 07 June 2019

Happy Farm'n Friday! Last weekend we finished converting the flowerbed sprinkler heads into drip irrigation to direct water to where it's needed. It was a pretty simple process for anyone else who was considering doing the same. We had to buy a few new spray heads, some 8-port manifolds to cap the top of the spray heads, and some bubblers and spray stakes to direct the water to where it needs to go; we already had plenty of drip tubing with our setup in the front yard for watering dahlias and other crops. The downside is we have these octopus-like units sticking up here and there, but it saves me time and saves water.

We also harvested enough broccoli rabe to use in one of my favorite broccoli-based dishes, Beef and Broccoli with Fried Ramen. It's also a good recipe to use to upgrade packages of inexpensive instant ramen into something quite delicious.

I'm still tootling around in Rune Factory 3. I found the weird shadow monster in Oddward Valley, though it ran away and dropped a super-spoiled dish. I tried to give it back to Sakuya, but she didn't want it, so I carried it around for a few days. Eventually I tossed it into the shipping bin, and soon afterwards bumped into Blaise complaining that a shadow carried away his fried fish. I'll have to head back to the valley to see if the mysterious monster appears again. I've also taken an interest in Carmen the fisher woman. We almost went out together for a quaint day of fishing when suddenly her big brother barreled in like a hurricane to put a stop to it! Oh my, Carlos is a bit overprotective of his little sister! I think I reassured him that my intentions were not evil when I had to bring him two Lover Snapper. I can't dislike a guy who reminds me of Michaelangelo the Ninja Turtle, so whatever it takes to appease him is fine with me.

June BokuMobage Events

Mobage is still making adjustments to the social events in Bokujou Monogatari for Mobage, the browser-based online game with a Bokujou Monogatari theme. During the melon-milk themed Hungry Animal event, May 11th to May 20th, they had two special fields for players to grow their snacks to feed the random hungry animals, but this time the second field was restricted to only growing the special nuts that are used for gotcha pulls to win wigs, outfits, and other goodies. This limited the number of snacks players could grow to feed their animals, so the event prize tiers were harder to achieve. Then during the steampunk-themed Big Crop event, Mobage handed out prizes based on the players' ranking half-way through the event and then again at the end of the event.

During June, the events are:

Additional Games at E3 2019

E3 starts next Tuesday (wooo!) and XSeed Games has revealed the games they will be promoting on the show floor. In West Hall, XSeed will be showing:

The publisher also hinted that they have a secret "Grand New Title," revealed today to be GranBlue Fantasy Versus.

Bandai Namco hasn't revealed what they will be showing yet. Also, My Time at Portia publisher Pathea Games will be in attendance at their own table in South Hall.

Farming Simulator publisher Giants Software does not appear on this year's list of participating companies.

I'm REALLY hoping Keita Takahashi's Wattam will show up somewhere during E3, as the Ps4 totem-stacking game is finally scheduled to be released sometime this summer. He was just at BitSummit in Japan earlier this month though. We'll hope and see! I WANT TO STACK POO DANG IT!

Natsume revealed their E3 game lineup last week, and this week revealed their E3 promo goodie will be a squishy sheep keychain! In prior E3 events, show attendees could snag a Natsume E3 exclusive Harvest Moon promo item by playing all the games located at their booth.

DoraeSoS New Commercial

With the new Doraemon Bokujou Monogatari being released NEXT WEEK (woo woo!), Bandai Namco has released a new television commercial to promote the game, featuring actress Hana Sugisaki. They released a making-of video too, showing the behind-the-scenes work the crew did to film the commercial.

Until next time!
