Will I be able to do this match-up justice?
No. We all know that, and anyone who thinks I will should now slap themselves.
Sorry this didn't get up earlier, but... Harvest Moon happened. The one where you get to kill things, up until you reach Misty Bloom Cave and notice that it's surrounded by water, so you'll need to wait until winter, except it's freaking SUMMER.
Yeah. That one.
