I found myself over at Geek Related recently reading the new that Pathfinder had pulled even with 4th edition sales according to a recent sales report by ICV2.com. Generally happy with Paizo's success I purused some back articles on the site to see what else they had written lately. I came across an interesting piece from the middle of September entittled, "Mike Mearls Admits D&D 4e Blows." Finding this somewhat hard to believe as Mearls in basically in charge of 4th edition, I have it a read. The article was short and mainly made reference to a recent interview that The Escapist had conducted with Mearls himself on the direction of 4th edition D&D.
As our regular readers here know, no one here at The Labyrinth plays 4th edition, and as a result we can fall a bit behind the most current news regarding the most recent edition of D&D. That having been said, I'm a little embarassed that I am only reading that interview now. I like to keep up on the comings and goings of the hobby and I think that the interview really has some important info about where D&D 4e is heading. Whether you love WotC and 4e or not you have to admit that whatever they do has effects on the whole industry for good or ill so when Mearls speaks I feel like we should all listen.
