DLC still uncertain for PS3 users

Sony has declared that it's rolling up its sleeves and getting stuck in with Bethesda to ensure PS3 users eventually get access to Skyrim's downloadable expansion, Dawnguard. The announcement comes after Bethesda cast doubt on the idea of ever getting it working. 

"We have a big, broad dev support team that works closely with Bethesda -- and with all of our partners - to work with them to solve that any sort of issues they have along the way," Sony's Adam Boyes told Kotaku. "Of course, I always want everything to work always for everyone. I can't promise any kind of resolution or timeline but can say that everyone involved is trying their best to get this stuff working."

Fans continue to be unhappy about the situation, and it's pretty embarrassing for the Elder Scrolls publisher. Still, it comes to something when one of the biggest problem gamers have is that they can't buy extra content on top of a $60 purchase. This industry!

Our ongoing look at what it would be like if the late heavy metal icon Ronnie James Dio continues his exploration of Skyrim. I like to think, in a decade or so, people will look back on this video series the same way they on that Ken Burns documentary about that thing that he did. 
As Ronnie James Dio continues through the land of Skyrim on his stolen horse, we turn our magnifying glasses of journalistic criticism and nitpickery on Metallica and U2. What is the relationship between these two bands of musicians?Watch our dumb video to find out. 
In our ongoing attempts to break YouTube by uploading the dumbest things possible into it, thereby short-circuiting the Mother Brain and freeing us all from our virtual imprisonment, we've started the second chunk of our adventures in Skyrim as heavy metal legend Ronnie James Dio. This is a bad video made by dumb people, but those dumb people had fun making it, so there's that.
Usually I just poke fun at Skyrim modders for rendering photo realistic horse vaginas, but I may finally play Skyrim just to play this mod aiming to recreate the first four levels of the tragically abandoned classic MediEvil.  MediEvil 3 and Bushido Blade 3. C'mon, guys. Needs to happen.
