    There is some mildly cool loot in Dawnguard plus some new quests in Skyrim itself. The crossbow is fun too. Being a vampire is better than being a werewolf but it is still fairly meh.

    Personally I'm not really interested in becoming a vampire or a werewolf.

    Eh, I guess I'll just wait when Dawnguard is dirt cheap to get it. I'll see if I can use my GMG credit along with the deal to get Dragonborn, that seems like a better waste of my time for now.

    I honestly have no idea what you mean. I never claimed 200+ was awesome. I said it's not unplayable, which is something I've seen americans claim before.

    Oceanic WoW servers are still physically located in the US.

    Being a werewolf is fun if you have some better werewolf mods and a warzone mod installed.

    It's more for RPG reasons rather than funness. Although you could say I find being a werewolf isn't fun for RPG reasons. If that makes sense. *shrugs*

    I treat it like berserk for non-orcs, but I have to clean up afterwards.

    Oh gawd, Greenmangaming ran out of stock for the Dragonborn DLC just when I was about to buy it. :cry:

    I hope they restock the darn thing before the sale's over, I was looking forward to buying something!

    That's ancient, ancient news. :p

    Though I was surprised. I thought they promised more substantial DLC, but guess not. And it's not like they wouldn't have made tons of dough... though I guess they're going full blown now for Fallout 4 and doing the pre-production stuff for TES VI as well.

    I didn't play Dragonborn so far, but lets be honest: The DLCs for Skyrim were mediocre at best.

    Dawnguard was an interesting idea, but lacked some polish (I still see lots and lots of NPCs dying from vampire attacks in cities). Could have been a lot more. :(

    Hearthfire was a nice addition, but user-mod level content.

    Dragonborn looks nice for those who like Morrowing, but the price is way off for me. I don't spend 20€ on DLC. I'll wait until it is on sale.

    I sort of hoped they would add an improved civil war quest line via DLC. The potential here was toally awesome. Could have been some sort of dynamic warzones-like stuff going on as the player continues his adventure with dynamic quests and a main quest line that goes past "conquer forts X, Y and Z". :(


    Still, played a bit yesterday and remembered why this game is so awesome: Just wanted to walk to riften and ended up spending 2h exploring a necromancer infested tomb and a falmer cavern. :D

    Yeah, I remember this clearly. They made it seem like they were going to do some pretty heavy stuff that was more like expansions than DLC. It turned out being exactly like Fallout 3 and New Vegas DLC.

    I haven't even felt the need to buy the Skyrim DLC yet, even though Skyrim is one of my favorite games of the past 5 years. I think I'm just not the target audience for Bethesda-style DLC. I don't really want more "land" that feels "detached" from the main game. It seems I wish they'd build on the inside more. They need a lot more type of randomly accessible loot and equipment. I'm aware their DLC has it, but not enough, and too predictably placed. They need more monsters to inhabit Skyrim. Increase the content of what's already there. Maybe I'm crazy, but I never really liked going random places that feel like they're not even part of the main game. Stuff like the Historical simulator of the chinese war in fallout 3, and the UFO, and going to Pittsburgh... um... I just didn't like it somehow. Especially when the areas felt contrived and linear. The last DLC they released for Fallout 3 was a better example... Even though it was still away from the main game, it contained a large zone that managed to feel thematic and strong by itself. I've yet to play the New Vegas DLC.

    When they said "more substantial DLC" for skyrim, I expected there'd be new zones, but I also thought they'd increase the content of what's to be found in the awesome land of skyrim they'd already created.

    I'm really disappointed. I really, really wanted them to add some sort of "Return Winterhold to its former glory" questline. I thought that was the most interesting potential questline and biggest dropped ball in the vanilla world.

    That being said, the DLC they provided was decent.

    Fallout 4 is just rumors based on nothing. Their next major production seems to be some kind of a survival horror game.

    Not "based on nothing"; there's some decent evidence to suggest it (some actual, some circumstantial). Plus, The Evil Within is not being developed by Bethesda Game Studios (the current developer of TES and Fallout), but another studio.
