The 360 timed exclusive thing is a bit shit, but I guess I don't care *that* much as long as I can avoid hearing all about the DLC before it's even released on PC.

Vampires? Oh what I wouldn't give for Skyrim to have those secret vampire clans, with their own quest lines from Morrowind. If you got infected by a vampire from a certain clan, you could join it (if you could find it).

Corrected. You're welcome. Also yes. Also they won't. Also it obviously refers to Meridia's quest line and the entire business of her not liking dead things at all. Look at the Dovahkiin's eyes. Dawnbreaker was one of my favorite swords that I played with that entire game. His eyes are basically the same as that sword's glowing mini-sun in the middle.

This would be in line with Oblivion's expansion where you not only had a main game Deadric statue quest for Sheogorath but also the expansion let you travel to his realm. Perhaps we shall travel to Meridia's realm or help and fight against an undead invasion or something.

Morrowind, obviously I meant Morrowind. IDK why it didn't come out that way. Thanks.

Now that you mention it, the eyes do look like Dawnbringer. So, a zombie expansion for Skyrim it is, then. Gee, haven't seen zombies before. :/

Shivering Isles was great, though, so I'll hold out hope.

Breaker. Dawnbreaker. Also if I'm correct and this is an expansion dealing with Meridia and defending (or aiding) a undead invasion of sorts on Skyrim (or her realm The Colored Rooms) it does not rule out a vampire overhaul or Vampire led undead army. A skeleton invasion would be nice. There's plenty of space to work with Skeletons and the Draugrs in the ancient tombs. Zombies are not the only undead in the Elder Scrolls universe.

I sure hope Bethseda as Patrick calls it in this article has something cool up their sleeve too.

For anyone asking about the PS3 version of Skyrim, it's perfectly playable after 1.5. I've started my third character recently, and at a total of over 250 hours between them all. Still love this game.

@AlexW00d: Not true. All those mentioned games were better on a 360, Assasins creed had a terrible framerate and pop in.

We need a DLC dedicated solely to M'aiq and his adventures around Tamriel.

@Saganomics: I'll have her try that, thanks!

Why is it that a photoshopped picture of some regular dude with slightly off color eyes gets me excited?

I really need to calm down about Skyrim or something.

''The DLC is slated for release this Summer on the Xbox 360, with any plans for release on the PC or Playstation 3 still pending due to a previous agreement to release the first two major expansions to the game exclusively on the Xbox 360 for thirty days.''

Fuck....

EDIT: GIVE IT TO ME NAO

I never completed most of the boring content in the actual game, why would I want more?

@Rolyatkcinmai: You must be mistaken, it says Xbox 360, not PS3.

Can't wait.

how long till pc guys just mod all the new shit in there for free?

#165 Posted by AiurFlux (902 posts) -

I absolutely despise anything like this that's tied to backroom political bullshit where one company shelled out a fortune to get early access. Playstation 3 users get fucked over since the games launch, with it still being moderately fucked up, and they're just getting shit on again. PC users, the ones most loyal to the franchise, don't get access to this at a time when they should. And why? Because Micro$oft decided to throw money at Bethesda/ZeniMax/Satan/whoeverthefuck else just to toot their trombone and have it a month early. Decisions like this are terrible. They hurt the fucking players just because of greed. And the thing that REALLY pisses me off is the canned bullshit PR response to the criticism that Bethesda is getting, written by Bethesda community manager Matt Grandstaff;

And I quote, "We have been committed to fans on all platforms. We continue to work on new updates adding new features and with PC specifically, we’ve put more effort into the Creation Kit and Workshop than previous modding tools. We’ll have plenty more to share on our support for Skyrim soon."

I want to shove my computer up their collective asses. Todd Howard can be first on the list. I should not be punished because I don't own a broken fucking console with 7 year old hardware that shits itself every year because it gets a little to hot and the components decide to melt.

really looking forward to this. I really want a piece of badass armour for my nord to wear plus skyrim is just badass and an exuss to go back is just awesome.

#167 Posted by Maurdakar (75 posts) -

Yes but PC gamers get this for free. Also mods. Come to think of it, I get every game for free.
