About the big to-do around the blogs this past week.
Since WotC pulled their pdfs, I'm no longer giving them any of my money.
If I were in the States with easy access to second-hand WotC minis, I'd likely have picked up plenty, but I'm not, so I didn't. Still not giving any of my money directly to WotC if I had. And since they're discontinuing the minis line, I won't be giving them any of my money that way in the future.
If I play any of WotC's RPGs (and yes, I did have fun playing Gamma World the other day, thank you very much) friends have bought the rules, not me.
I'm playing D&D, but the version I purchased 26 years ago (plus my own house rules, of course).
I've always been pretty good about putting together gaming groups, or getting into ones that already existed.
So all the speculation about WotC D&D dying, or Pathfinder taking over as the 800lb. gorilla (not playing that one, either), being good for the hobby, being bad for the hobby, being good for the industry, being bad for the industry, whatever, doesn't really affect me one way or the other.
The only thing keeping me from gaming at the moment are time constraints. And so I don't waste any time worrying about the 'health' of the industry, or moves by the big corporations in it. I may have some opinions about what they do, and ideas for what I'd like them to do. But the goings-on within the industry give me no reason to lose any sleep, or gnash my teeth, or anything like that.
I'm a selfish gamer, but as long as my personal gaming is good, that's all that matters to me.
