Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Freyashawk's View of Rune Factory

Tides of Destiny is the latest in the Rune Factory series of games, produced both for DS handheld systems as well as the Wii and now PS3. Rune Factory is a spin-off of the popular and highly educational Harvest Moon series. In all of these games, friendship and honour are worth more than money or financial success. As these games are based on an agrarian model, players are encouraged to do the maths to decide which items are most cost-effective while making certain to grow those that appeal most to other Gifts. You can find guides for all these games on my Harvest Moon Forever site as well as IGN.
