The Jpn title for that harvest moon game is "牧場物語シリーズ まきばのおみせ"

so I am not sure if the translation for that title is correct

Google translates it as "Show me your meadow Harvest Series".

If that helps. :p

・Mamoru-kun wa Norowarete Shimatta! (Mamonoro in short)(shoot'em up)360
・Ketsui Kizuna Jigoku Tachi EXTRA(shoot'em up)360

Looking forward to the former, and very cautiously to the latter. Mamoru-kun is an adventure-esque shooter developed by G-Rev makers of Under Defeat, Senkou no Ronde etc. Ketsui is one of CAVE's best arcade shooters, but the port team working on it royally fucked up on their last work, Dodonpachi Daioujou for the 360, so definitely going to have to wait and see.

Am I the only one that thinks an M rated Harvest Moon would be awesome?

Grow five corn to trade to the mayor's daughter on New Year's Day to get a rare stone that can be used on the 51st level of the cave with haunted chickens to acquire a bullet to be used in a gun that is gotten via selling your cow to a wandering merchant that comes to your town at 2 a.m. on the night of the fourth full moon following the start of your fifth year of marriage in order to kill the bad guy. What a game.

I believe the correct translation would be "Farm Store" or something similar?

I didn't think the Harvest Moon games on Wii were terribly successful, but I guess they're cheap enough that they don't require selling 100k+.

Well, I mean you could try to start off like normal, play like a good guy, but you could poison neighboring crops, try to force the town to rely on you. And then you can expand into other businesses as you become more and more influential. Maybe as an MMO.

No no.

Make it like Little King's Story in concept where you command everyone to do your farming for you, and send those who refuse to the chopping block! ^_^

"Farm Tale Series: Farm Store"

牧場 can also be "ranch," if you prefer.

It supposedly officially translates as Ranch Story, I'm sure that was confirmed at one point.

Yeah I know "Supposedly + Officially = Oxymoron" but still. :p

Edit: To guess on some of the other Wii games in the Game Index:

The "2009" and "NEXT" should be both Power Pro games.

But what is the game that shows "Wii" and "Wi-Fi" in the name?
