Going to jam a few Elder Scrolls morsels into this post.

Bethesda just dropped the name of the new DLC for Skyrim called Dawnguard. From the Bethesda blog "Coming this summer to Xbox 360. More details at E3.." Kind of wish DLC like this wouldn't drop only on the XBox but that is often the way of things. Looks like we will find out more about this exclusive XBox DLC at E3.

In other elder scrolls news it looks like Morrowind turned 10 today and to celebrate Morrowind and Oblivion are half off on Steam this week. Awesome.

I'm tempted on the Morrowind. It was my favorite of the series (never played the first two, so I can't really talk), and with the mod's you can run now it looks pretty nice.

For those of you who haven't played it, it's a lot like Skyrim or Oblivion... but wierder and less balanced.

Just an FYI about the DLC-- it is almost definitely timed-exclusive. Everything Bethesda has released since Oblivion has had timed-exclusive DLC on the 360, but it always makes its way to the PC and PS3 soon enough.

It's a really crappy practice though. I guess it's hard to argue with the bags of money Microsoft gives them for that temporary exclusivity though. To be honest, it's why I always buy Bethesda games (at least the first time around-- I own Oblivion on all three platforms now) on the 360. I know I'm supporting the practice and am part of the problem because of that, but that extra month with the DLC is all too tempting.

Eh, with a game like Skyrim (single player, lots of time to waste, mods galore) I'm not chomping a the bit for DLC. Now, I'll probably get it, but if I'll probably wait until its on Steam Sale no matter when it comes out.

I dislike exclusive content either direction. I agree that Skyrim comes packed to the gills with already existing content, its just lame everyone but XBox misses out on it.

Well at least for a little bit anyway.
