The lights are on
I love Skyrim. Bethesda’s exceptional RPG was my personal 2011 game of the year. After a hundred-plus hours in-game and a year of real time, though, I’ve moved on. Here’s what the DLC the company is teasing can do to convince me to return to the frozen north of Tamriel.
Craft Some New ExperiencesIn what I’m sure is an indication of a deep character flaw, I am an absolute sucker for using crafting to break a game wide open even if it means hours of grinding out skill points over a forge and bellows. Skyrim scratches that itch like none other. My double-enchanted, super-improved dragonscale armor took basically forever to make, but I’m pretty much invulnerable to anything extant in the world with it on. I’d love the chance to make it even more ridiculously imbalanced, or cosmetically unique, or just something new and interesting to craft. Skyrim’s design makes breaking the game great fun, and more of that would be a powerful lure to get me back in.
Explore The PastMuch of Skyrim, particularly the main quest, hammers home the point that some seriously awesome stuff went down in bygone eras, with dragonborn through history waging war against the eternal foe and the twin tragedies of Dwemer and Falmer playing out across centuries to their ultimate conclusion. Let me step into the past and live those epochal moments myself, and I’m back on board.
Dragon MountsSo what if it’s the current rumor? Flying free on your own personal dragon would be incredible. Just think about how much damage you could do to a town that annoys you with the guards’ outmoded ideas about “property ownership” and “not fireballing racist Nords in the face.”
Let Us All InSeriously, guys, a not-insignificant fraction of Skyrim players do it on platforms other than Xbox 360. No offense to the Microsoft crowd, but the rest of us would like to not be treated like second-class citizens this time around.
Xbox 360 Avatar SupportImagine being able to wear your favorite Halo helmet and have a Companion Cube follow you into the darkest of catacombs!
Haha, just kidding. That would be terrible, like everything involving Xbox avatars.
What does DLC have to do to get you back into a game that came out a year ago?
I want to go back to Cyrodil and see the effects of the war. I want to go to Morrowind.
This article says it all.
Yeah, I feel bad for the Skyrim PS3 owners, they kinda got jipped on the game. I have heard nothing but negative feedback about PS3 version. Before I got it for PC, I was contemplating it for a long time weather to get it for the PS3 or PC, I made a good choice. But still, I hope the future installments from Bethesda will take care of the issue.
GET DLC FOR PS3!!!!
Sorry for yelling, but this is very frustrating...
Oh, and dragon mounts would be cool too...
xbox 360 wins hahahahahahahahahahah
I so agree about not treating us like second class citizens.
i agree with this, just beat oblivion again and wanna play skyrim but it just..lacks charm i guess
I mostly agree with what you said. About exploring the past, if you mean archeologicaly or historicaly, it would be great. Not time travel, not again, please. Not ever.
And I loved everything else you said. Well, except for the avatar support. I don't want a companion cube in Skyrim, or a Halo helmet. Although I'd have no trouble for a skin to be available, as long as it's only cosmetic and I don't lose game experience by not using it.
Cant wait for the dragon mounts
I am still enjoying Skyrim. I certainly mean no offense to people who like to "break" the game by making God items and mastering all things, but for me, the richest experience is more along the lines of traditional RP. I taylor my own experience, I do not master all things, even if it means I struggle at certain points (my traditional Knight character has to buy all of his potions ect.) If the DLC can give me more material that makes sense for at least one of my characters, I'll be very pleased. Bring back Chrysamere!
skyrim is awesome game but
it need one thing it need
co-op be awesome
It would've helped if my skyrim had DLC at all, but being that us ps3 owner don't count, I've long since returned it, didn't even complete it, with all the bugs, glitches & such. Really wanted to follow through on that skyrim experience, loved 'oblivion', & loving 'dishonor', but I'm not wasting anymore of my hard earned 'recession' cash on this game, they had their chance, it's passed. Its all about assassins creed 3 right now.
Up the cap level from 81 to 100.
riding Dragons would be cool.
The problem with Elder Scrolls games is once you play for so many hours, you will most likely never come back to it. But to what the guy said yes I would like dragon mounts, maybe some new weapons too!
