From Destructoid: "That wasnt exactly what I thought Id hear from Yasuhiro Wada when I asked him what types of games he enjoys playing. Friday afternoon, just outside of San Franciscos Financial District, I sat down with him, along with Akibo Shieh, founder and CEO of Aksys Games, to discuss Little Dragons Café. The game, releasing later this summer, is a lifestyle-shop sim where players control one half of a set of twins as they try to keep a café in business while raising a dragon that is the key to waking their mother from a deep slumber. That may sound outlandish, but it's par the course for one of gaming's most resilient creators."

San Francisco's poop problem is costing it a lot of money.
The city has been dealing with an epidemic of dirty streets filled with feces and syringes, one that is now putting a major source of revenue in jeopardy. As reported, the city's trouble with its homeless population and dirty residents is now leading the lucrative convention industry to find other places.
"It's already hitting San Francisco in the pocketbook," Joe D'Alessandro, president and CEO of the San Francisco Travel Association, told NBC Bay Area. "We don't want San Francisco to be seen as a dirty, unsafe, unfriendly city, and we need to do what we can to counter that."
D'Alessandro said conventions are put off by the city's dirty streets and unsafe atmosphere. Conventions are a major source of tax revenue for the city, as San Francisco hosts between 40 and 60 major conventions a year that attract as many as 650,000 people in a year.
