A Comment about Dragon's Crown
If you are unaware of the issue, you can go here
I am (or should be) the Dragon's Crown target audience. I played the shit out of Tower of Doom and Shadow over Mystaria in my youth at the local arcade. It fills my heart with sadness every time I visit my hometown and see that old arcade all boarded up. If there were an arcade around here, I would still be playing the shit out of those games, and, as it is, I have to settle with emulating them on my computer.
In addition, I absolutely love Odin Sphere and Muramasa. I could (and have) played those games all day long, hacking through all manner of monster and having a great old time.
When I heard about the release of Dragon's Crown by Vanillaware in combination with the designers of the old D&D arcade games over a year ago, I should have been filled with a glee too immense to contain. And I was...kind of...until I started looking at screenshots...and ended up somewhere closer to apprehension.
I don't want to look at that shit. I am a heterosexual male with a healthy libido, but, man, I don't know...should I be hiding this game from my wife? The way that witch's breast jiggle as she's channeling a spell...it's, like, pornographic? It leave me speechless. What if I had a small child? What if I don't want to be horrified by haunted mega-breasts while I chop up some goblins? I don't get the allure.
Bottom line - it detracts from the game. A lot. A lot a lot. I should be out there in the rain right now waiting to get my hands on a copy, but, as it is, I am not. That is all.

I’m sure I’m not alone in the fact that this last month and a half as been quite crazy. I remember about mid-March when the pandemic really started getting serious in the US, and I decided to still go to Piranha Pig Con (pictured above), and then visit my wife’s family out in Virginia.
I don’t have to explain to you how chaotic this last week has been, and I’m sure you don’t need any more statistics at this point. What I’d like to do, though, is briefly explain how Cephalofair Games has been affected by recent events, and what we will be doing moving forward.
