Morrowind 10th year anniversary and Skyrim Dawnguard DLC

10 years ago, The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind was released by Bethesda. That game has brought joy and happiness to my life since day one. It may not look pretty by today's standards (without mods, of course), but Morrowind was still the best, most complete and immersive game I have ever owned. And mind you, I've played many games over the years. I simply cannot quantify what that game means to me. And remember: it's never too late to give Morrowind a try.

Ahem. Anyway, as I wipe a tear from my eye.... the new Skyrim DLC has been announced by Pete Hines (finally)! It's called Dawnguard, it's due for summer 2012 on Xbox... and yeah, that's pretty much it. More details to come at E3. However, last week's update brought with it some game files referring to "Snow Elves" and "crossbows". Well, the Falmer were once the Snow Elves before they were driven underground. And I don't think I need to explain the crossbows part....

Dovahkiin looks pretty intimidating in this picture, doesn't he?

As per the agreement with Microsoft *cough* corporate bastards *cough* Dawnguard will be released on Xbox 360 at least 30 days before PS3 or PC. But PC gamers have mods... so the only ones who are really losing here are the PS3 players. Sorry PS3 players.
