Xbox release then another month till its available on PC...Least Im not on PS3. Dont they realize the proper way to do expansions is to have the next one ready to go the instant I finish the last one. So unprofessional.

I think they should have their whole company working on fixing the PS3 expansions, rather than release more and more for 360 and PC before the first one on PS3 is out...

They're still making money though, it's not like because it's not working for PS3 they aren't making anything. People on Xbox and PC are still paying them and so they are still making a profit.

Got hearthfire finally for PC off of steam. Not as good as an expansion or anything but worth the $5? Yeah, sure, why not. Built 2 houses complete with every addition you can put on plus the stable, cow, fishing thing, etc.

For kids theres a little girl in the orphanage who has the very creepy comment "Kill one person, and you can solve so many problems. I wonder at the possibilities." Yeah, shes a future serial killer, I took her as one of my adopted kids.

The materials needed for building a house and its contents, for the most part, are about as easy to get together without becoming tedious as possible. It takes some time but it ends up being a pretty big place and theres lots of stuff to put in it. So yeah, Hearthfires no big deal but its nice.


I haven't checked it out yet. Can you build your house anywhere on the map? I have a few places I'd love to make a house. I noticed there are some other house building mods on the workshop but I suppose those aren't as good as Hearthfire since the mods were created by the public vs Bethesda?

There are only 3 locations you can build homes. One each in Falkreath, Morthal, and Dawnstar.

It's better than any mods out there I know of, mainly because of the interactions with your kids, and the few dynamic events. Plus this just blends in more seamlessly with the rest of the game, as an official add-on would.

The whole thing is meant more for 360 gamers who don't have the ability to mod their games, but even on PC it's still a decent buy. Just something nice to have in the background during your campaign to beat the game.

Oh, in the towns where you couldn't build originally. That kinda stinks. I was hoping for complete freedom; build whatever model you want, wherever you want.

There is a "team" working on the PS3 problem but in more recent interviews Bethesda leads have stated that its not a question of when the PS3 expansions will be available but IF they will be available. Ever. Ominous for fans playing on the PS3.

Expansions are like free money for games makers. A lot of times its just a matter of spit polishing something that didnt quite make the release date or even a portion of the game that was intentionally held back to bring out as an expansion when it could have easily been in the original release. The cost to make expansions is low and if they cant get it to work on the PS3 well thats a revenue stream they will have to do without. But this is money they wont be getting. Bethesda cant be happy about that. There are probably people whos jobs are on the line over this problem with the expansions on the PS3 and if it could have been fixed by now it would have. But to come out and say publicly they may not be able to fix it at all, to me that says they are admitting defeat and will probably move forward with expansions for just the Xbox and PC until the next Elder Scrolls on the upcoming xbox 720 and PS4 late next year. But I could be wrong on every count.

OK. I finally upgraded my PC after putting it off for a long time.
Moved all my Skyrim video settings from Medium to Ultra. Maxed everything, read a few guides online about tweaking the vid settings to get the most out of the game. then downloaded Bethesdas free High Resolution Texture pack for the game. A 3.5 gig DL.

yeah, the game looked damn good before...now it looks better.

Games like this make me regret ditching game design and animation so soon right out of high school even after I focused most of my days during grade 11 and 12 on doing just that.

I made the poor decision of buying just before I have my final exams.
Needless to say, I haven't studied much.

Who thinks leveling monsters are a bit stupid? Maybe certain ones but not everyone. Everything in Skyrim is a kinda though but not really a challenge. I remember in Morrowind there where places I feared to go at low levels and even at higher leves I was still a little weary about new places. In Skyrim I charge about slaying willy-nilly without a care.

Just outside of Whiterun (or Whitehold, whichever is by Dragonsreach) I ran into 2 giants and 2 mammoths. The mammoths didn't really concern me, but I was crushed to death by one blow from a giant. I'm less than 10 hours into the game though, and just kind of traipsing around, no methodical levelling.

Besides giants, I would agree with you. Oblivion had levelling monsters as well, it makes the whole world accessible from the get go at least. Have you tried changing the gameplay settings to raise the difficulty?

On a side note, one thing I miss already compared to Oblivion is the lack of "extra" characters, like in the Imperial City, for example. It feels rather empty, unless I just have not been to the metropolis yet. There is absolutely no shortage of things to do though mind you, my quest tab is filing up ridiculously quick!

Yeah giants are pretty nasty in the beginning. I remember I was galavanting around at level 5 and I ran into a giants nest and I thought, "yeah! time to spank some giants!" ... needless to say I didn't hit the ground before the reload screen came up.

You can change the difficulty!? Where??

I've never really noticed a lack of people in city's. Well Whiterun didn't have very many people in it, it seems but that the city I've spent the most time.

Talking about quests, and this is a fairly minor issue in my mind but it still bugs me, is that they seem to force you into all the factions like the thieves guild, mages guild, companions ect. Just talking to the wrong guy starts a quest to join these places. I dunno it just bugs me.

If you haven't found it yet, it should be found by pressing start, then finding gameplay settings, and you can take it from there. You are even allowed to change gameplay settings in the middle of a battle!

Obviously you don't have to participate, but yeah, it's there, just doesn't bother me. I ended up joining all the guilds in Oblivion, just to score the swag, and to check out some more plot. The Dark Brotherhood gave me what I ended up wearing for the entire game.

I found it, the only time I've been in the settings was to turn off subtitles and music.

:P

Yeah I ended up doing all the guilds in Skyrim, I like an empty quest book.

Finally some sort of news. Dragonborn is supposed to be released on Feb. 5th on PS3. They are reporting that Dawnguard and Hearthfire will be released some time in February as well. All 3 will be able to purchase for 50% the first week of each release.
