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!

Review: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim: Dragonborn

It's no secret that I'm a gigantic fan of The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind. For whatever reason, be it the more engaging than average world, the giant mushrooms, the increased freedom, or the ability to customize items and sp...more

Review: New Nintendo 3DS XL

Nintendo has an interesting history in terms of portables. Outside of the rare add-on like the expansion pack for the Nintendo 64 or the Game Boy Player for the GameCube, they play it rather conservatively when it comes ...more

Review: Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn (Patch 2.5)

Final Fantasy XIV has come a long way. Although there wasn't any real endgame content to speak of when A Realm Reborn launched in its 2.0 incarnation, Square Enix worked hard to deliver in 2.1, and has continued to deliv...more

Review: Citizens of Earth

The Fifth Element came on TV the other day, and it really got me thinking about mise-en-scène versus characterization. It’s one of my absolute favorite movies, and is an exemplar of sci-fi in cinema without being...more
