The wait is over Skyrim fans, DLC is finally here!
Bethesda will be releasing a new Skyrim add-on each week on PSN for the next three weeks. The first DLC to be released today, is Dragonborn. Dragonborn will be 50% off ($9.99) during launch week only, so grab it soon.
“To begin Dragonborn, you must travel to Solstheim. This can be done at any point after installing the game add-on content by travelling to the Windhelm docks and locating Gjalund Salt-Sage, a sea captain that will take you to the island for a small fee. The “main” questline of Dragonborn will start soon after you have started the main game’s quest “The Horn of Jurgen Windcaller”, after consulting with the Greybeards for the first time. After having started this quest, you will soon run into a group of Cultists when traveling around theworld that will discuss Dragonborn’s questline.”
The release of Hearthfire and Dawnguard are not far behind, with availability in North America beginning on February 19th and 26th, respectively. For a full list of release dates and pricing, including European availability, please visit Bethblog.com

These early exclusives really irritate me. What’s your take on them?
To quote the game’s vernacular, Skyrim isn’t a flawless game, but it certainly is legendary. I’m utterly amazed by how it consumed my life for nearly two months. I’ve been meaning to write the review for a while, but the game offers you so much to do that I couldn’t help but to think I was missing something that should be here. I’m confident enough now; I’ve platinum’d the game, completed nearly all quests and side quests I could find, and replayed most quest lines with a second character.
Skyrim is an incredible game, but it has more flaws than anyone would care to admit. However, the most impressive achievement of the game is being one of the most enjoyable experiences in video game history, regardless of any shortcomings. I tried to condensate this review in a simple post as I usually do, but there’s too much to talk about and it would get confusing, so I’m dividing everything in tabs, some generic and others more specific to RPGs. I don’t think I need to tell anyone that Skyrim is awesome, as that’s pretty much settled after winning just about every big prize in the business for 2011, so I hope my more in-depth comments shed some light for those of you who haven’t experienced it yet. Since most people have already beaten the game, just feel free to compare to your personal journey.
Via Twitter, Bethesda announced that the next Skyrim patch (Patch 1.4), available this month, will address the PS3 framerate issue that has been bugging PS3 users since the 2011 game of the year winner was released a few months back.
Its about time, I say …
