D&D 5e news roundup

Posted by WJWalton on Wed 11 of Jan., 2012 07:56 PST
Not unlike their last two edition announcements, Wizards of the Coast has attracted a bit of media attention with their news of a new ruleset. Here's what I've found so far:

New York Times
CNN - Geek Out! Blog
Forbes (and another)
Yahoo! Buzz Log
Huffington Post

In the "places you'd expect to find news about the new edition of D&D" category, we have:
Wired GeekDad
Nerd Trek

...and in the "unusual places to find news about the new edition of D&D" category, we have:
Hispanic Business
Perez Hilton's blog.

Whether you like the idea of a new edition, hate it, or are still on the fence, coverage like this still manages to generate interest in the hobby, and can get more new people interested and bring some wayward players back. If I have missed any, please let me know!
