Outside of getting my shit kicked in for trying to challenge the Black Knight early once, it's been surprisingly easy compared to previous Fire Emblems I've played, and I'm playing on Hard/Classic.

@el_tajij that's more that the GB forums are mostly dead, but yeah I'm excited. Just trying to figure out how I'll fit this game on top of the pile of other interesting ones I've started recently.

@notsosneakyguy: So far of the newer shows...

  • Cop Craft: He's a loose cannon who doesn't play by the rules (and slightly racist against elves) but he gets results. She's a noble elf(?) knight with amazing sword skills. They fight crime.
  • To The Abandoned Sacred Beasts: What if the Civil War ended with a bunch of soldiers who could transform into mythical beasts? Granted the show is not as well paced as the manga, but still has some charm.
  • Dumbbell Nan Kilo Moteru?: Roughly "How much do you lift, bro?" A show about highschool girls getting swole that uses actual workout routines.
  • Vinland Saga: Haven't seen yet but it's based off a fantastic historical fiction manga about vikings set during the rise of Canute the Great.
  • O Maidens in Your Savage Season: Drama/comedy about schoolgirls trying to figure out their growing changes. Not quite my thing but I've heard good things about it.
  • Fire Force: Apparently it's from the mangaka behind Soul Eater about a bunch of magical firefighters in an alternate world where people can spontaneously burst into flames. Also not quite my thing but I've heard good things about it.

During this year's Anime Expo, Granblue Fantasy creative director Tetsuya Fukuhara let slip a few interesting tidbits in his panel and an interview:

  • More news about GBVS on August 3, including a new mode or two that isn't just 1-on-1 fighting.
  • GBVS was intentionally designed to be easier to pick up a la Street Fighter 2 compared to the beautiful yet brutal animefighters like BBTAG or DBFZ, but with mechanics to add a little extra strategy so it's not just a beginner's first fighting game.
  • The base game of Granblue Fantasy will be released in Western markets after the release of GBVS (as "Granblue Fantasy Mobile") to take advantage of the expected hype that GBVS sparks. Unknown if there will be a separate server for the dirty Western peasants with newer characters/events/weapons unavailable or if they'll just branch out from their current one, considering most of the current game is already in decent localized English.
  • When asked about their favorite characters in the game, Fukuhara listed all dudes and Kimura listed all ladies. Don't know if that means anything but it's a fun bit of trivia.

More coverage of the panel can be found here. Didn't expect them to tease a release of the official English version of the mobage stateside, but I guess with GBVS, Relink, and the anime being released stateside they're slowly finding out there's an audience for it here.

I maintain the only good Zoids thing was the Chaotic Century anime. Other than that I couldn't really care, and have resigned myself to the franchise being mostly for the yutes.

@liquiddragon: I dunno how to review Ergo Proxy. It starts out good, then they meander around for like half the series on a hoverboat, and then they remember they have to write an ending and it becomes a whole mess of tangled plot points at the end. It's not bad, but it is an acquired taste.

On the other hand, it does have some deep philosophical references and the ending theme is a Radiohead song so that's cool.

@darthtraitor: Uh...sure, I guess? I do like Irish coffee on occasion. Seriously though, not sure a relatively dead forum on a video game website is the best place to ask.

What I can give you are the basics you need to consider before moving forward: Do you have a good location with an open space in mind, in an area with potential customers who would be interested enough to either walk into your shop or drive there? A good name for your shop-to-be? A business plan you can present to get financing? Knowledge of what permits you'll need to open up shop in your chosen locale and keep it open, especially if the place is selling/serving alcohol on the premises? Do you have a concept for the design of the coffee house itself? What equipment and staff you'll need to run the place? A plan to market the shop around the area once you do have all those other things in place? The energy to keep it running 7 days a week (at least until it gets off the ground and you can hire an assistant)?

I'd be down if anyone wants to play on PC. I still play on occasion.
