Scrye Magazine Acquires Gamingreport.com

I've used Gaming Report for years as it is the primary source of RPG news on the internet. I was amazed this morning to discover they have now been taken over by Krause Publishing (the publishers of Scrye Magazine amongst others).

I'll be interested to see how this effects things but have a sneaky suspicion they may try and not only keep it a primary source of news but also try and make it into the RPG/CCG equivalent of the brilliant BoardGames Geek. Atleast, that's what I'd try and do if I'd just purchased it.

What's your gut feeling on this? A change for the best? For the status quo or do you worry GR will go down hill?

My gut feeling isn't great. It's more of a 'wait and see' thing I guess.

The site has always been very good but there are obviously things that could be done to improve it. It all depends on how the Scrye crew decide to take things.

I personally liked it as an independent news service. Now I'm not saying that Scrye will be biased but I'd like to see what new features they bring in and what the extent of their news coverage ends up being (big fish as well as little fish).

So I guess my jury is current out on the subject.
