Once again this year, Hasbro has dropped the ball with D&D. First came the very small, very lack-luster press release for fifth Edition, than came the total non-response of the 40th birthday of The Game, and last week the Release of the Red Wizards Encounter material without the 3.5 or 4e material in "box".
I realize that at this point this may all sound like complaining on my part but I must wonder what is going through Wizards of the Coast and parent company Hasbro's head when it comes to the Dungeons and Dragons brand. now, it isn' tlike D&D was ever a heavily promoted/marketed/pimped brand since WOTC took over, but damn you'd think there would be something more, something bigger ... a bloody f-ing commerical at least stating that D&D still exists, that hey we should go play it!
Today out of pure coursity I googled the D&D Kre-o line since I've heard nothing of it for months and find ... its out, in the wild. What?! No press release, no mention anywhere that I know of, no bloody commericals? Transformers, Star Trek and GI Joe Kre-os get commericals (if rarely) so ... WTF?!
