Now, with this little list here (I went through and checked some of these, they were listed on Amazon for those who are disbelievers), it appears to my eye that we are indeed scraping the bottom of the barrel as far as ideas go. The last quarter of this year looks the same as well, so I am not sure what to think.

The ugly rumor going around is (as always) this is a sign of a new edition by 2008. I am not wanting to start a debate on the value/merits/needs of something like that, but I want to call out to some of the older gamers who were around for TSR and verify that indeed, this is almost the exact release schedule that they had when 2E (AD&D) was dying out back in the day before being bought out by Wizards.

Do you think that this is just not acceptable as far as releases? MM IV wasn't that great, PHB II was ok, it could have been more, I dread to think what Battle book is going to be like next month... Anyone have these concerns or is it just me?
