While taking a quick glance through my friends White Dwarf (I don't buy it anymore and quick glance just about covers it now, with the miniscule amount of worthwhile material in there).
I noticed something that may be a small ray of light at the end of the tunnel, Guy Haley is leaving as editor, thank god.
Now I know this dude probably has other influences affecting what goes into White Dwarf, but since this person took over WD has taken a nose dive into the brown and smelly stuff.
Lets just hope that the next editor has a bit more of an idea what WD should be and turns it away from the blatant catalogue it is nowadays, if only they could get fat bloke back eh.
So do you think its a good thing Mr Haleys leaving or do you think its just gonna be more of the dire same.
I'm not sure if Guy Haley is still editor. Didn't Owen Reese take over?
Either way it will be, sadly, more of the same. There is no way that GW top brass are going to allow their chief advertising tool to become just a (for want of a better term) ideas/gamer magazine whilst their share price is touch and go.
Unless things improve (a lot) soon, gamers will just switch off and leave the Dwarf to die.
Although that would of course be a good thing for LO.........
Also, could anyone tell me if the 'mass protest' mentioned in a seperate thread in August actually got off the ground?
I agree that they should get their fingers out quick though.
tangomegadeath, I actually had a lot to do with this protest but because of some personal tragic events in my life it did not seem important in comparison, however after time to deal with those events maybe its time to re-kindle the protest, what do others think?
You are absolutely right - in the grand scheme of things it's really quite trivial. This is after all a hobby (although a very absorbing one) and real life will always take precidence.
I'd be all for it though.
We need to make a stand about this. A mass protest from those with the real disposable income would really shake them up.
Your point about really needing a £4 a month magazine is a good one when you consider sites such as this. I suppose the only upsides to it are having one place for official updates (although standard bearer has previously spoken against using the mag for this purpose - just before updating Blood Angels) and that satisfaction people still feel when holding something 'real' in their hands.
How many times did I use the word real in that?
