Better late than never, right? Bethesda has finally started to release the downloadable content for Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim on PlayStation 3. The latest installment, Dragonborn, is now available via PlayStation Network for $9.99. That's only a temporary price, mind you, as all three add-ons will be offered for half off during their launch weeks on the platform.
Hearthfire is due out next Tuesday with Dawnguard set to follow the week after. I suppose it's nice that the content Xbox 360 and PC owners have had access to for several months has finally made its way to PS3. However, as someone who played the game on Sony's home console, I can't muster much excitement for their release on the system. Even with the discount, it almost seems like too little too late.
I love both Bethesda and Skyrim, but it's been out for well over a year and the game's luster has faded somewhat since then. Moreover, having already suffered through the numerous issues present in the grievously inferior PS3 version, the DLC troubles feel like icing on an already sour cake. It's difficult to feel not the slightest bit disrespected for supporting a multiplatform game and feeling spurned for playing on your preferred console.
But hey, if you're just looking forward to spending more time with Skyrim then more power to you!

Throughout the many competitive multiplayer matches of Leviathan: Warships I've played, I've shown a great deal of restraint. No matter how many vessels I lost, I refused to utter the words of defeat that so many ha...more

Review: Might & Magic Heroes VI: Shades of Darkness
I like the Heroes of Might & Magic series, but it has never been perfect. It's a very niche set of games that aren't quite role-playing titles or full-fledged strategy games. They are almost their own weird hybrid ge...more

Review: Call of Juarez: Gunslinger
Call of Juarez is a series I've always wanted to enjoy. It's hard not to admire its attempts at clever storytelling, and the commitment to creating a wild west first-person shooter in an age where everything's about blasting ...more
