Or it's just another lie by Todd Howard.

How is it a lie, exactly? As far as I know of, no one confirmed there being non-human children added. I was simply speculating.

Didn't Bethesda say that they wouldn't release unsubstantial DLC?

Hearthfire sure looks underwhelming. Well, lets hope there's still another DLC that actually adds something more than just building a house and adopting a child. preferably two more.

On the bright side, this ends the contract of Microsoft's 30 day exclusivity on dlc.

Building a house is the perfect way for a Dragonborn to retire in my opinion. Though I hope smithing goes up when you build the house.


Well we were dumb enough to think it was gonna happen.

Thought I'd give Dawnguard a shot. I'm a vampire at the moment. Seems pretty good so far.

I see the news of Hearthfire has hit Newgrounds. I, for one, am excited about it. It may be minor but it's pretty damn cool that you can customize your own house to your liking. My Paladin shall have a modest home with a chapel in the basement. That is, whenever the hell it ends up on PS3. Still waiting to join the Dawnguard, Bethesda....

Chapel in the basement? You played Knights of the Nine in Oblivion, didn't you?

Ha, sure did. Paladin is my favorite RPG class, next to Nightblade. There doesn't seem to be a lot of Paladin types left in Tamriel anymore, however.

400 MS points, which is 5 dollars.

Is there really nothing new in Hearthfire except building a house and adopting kids??? It seems way too lacking. I'm quite shocked if it doesn't at least include some new quests!


The trick is to use the drugs once to get there, and maybe spend the next ten years trying to get back there without the drug.

Oh, well that doesn't sound *too* bad for $5, I guess. I might be interested when it comes out for that price.

Some people can sink hundreds of hours into roleplaying and stuff like Hearthfire so technically they released a DLC with infinite hours, it's just not for everyone. I for one am glad that Bethesda is actually trying to appeal to a different kind of gamer for once.

So, I've come across something that maybe one of you guys can explain to me. I'm just northeast of Sunderstone Gorge right now and looking at this circle in the ground with this....stuff coming out and reaching all the way up to the sky. It's kind of like blue and orange...wind, I guess. And I stood in the middle of it and it did nothing. And there are these stacked stones on either side that remind me of Stonehenge. What's the deal with this?

If you've done the quest where Alduin resurrected a dragon, then you might have stumbled on an interrupted resurrection. Just go walk somewhere else (not fast travel) and the dragon should come back. I'd get out Skyrim, but I'm a bit busy with Dark Souls atm.

I don't see how role-playing in a single player game would be very entertaining. I'm not saying I'm not looking forward to it, I quite like the idea of building my own house in Skyrim. I remember when I bought my first house in Whiterun, I decorated the shelves and desks with skulls, gems and other rare, decorative items. But most of the time they'd end up on the other side of the room! So now having full control will be much better.

All I mean is it feels weird for a game like Skyrim that they're releasing a DLC without any new quests or special items. Oh well let's just hope it doesn't only take 10 minutes to build a house.

I really wish that Bethesda would add an unarmed skill tree with the next DLC. I also really want the ability to grapple when I'm fighting bare knuckle.

Only recently got this game. Bit late to the party, I know. Just finished the quest where you infiltrate a Thalmor's party then got attacked by a dragon - bad news since I'm wearing some wizard robes and I'm not even a good mage. I died a few times trying to flee, but then the next time I spawned a dragon landed next to me and just died automatically. I was able to loot it and absorb its soul, but then another dragon (presumably the one that originally attacked me) was still there. This game is strange.

So, a naked courier just came up to me and gave me two letters of inheritance, one from Ragnar and one from Ainethach...er...wut? I'm going to Karthwasten to look for their corpses in case they have anything on them. I have no idea how they died or why I got letters of inheritance from them...or why the courier was naked.

Couriers have randomly generated clothing, sometimes they end up generated with a lack of it.

Better yet they should have made fist weapons. They could have even worked off of the one handed tree. They have the shortest range and generally a damage comparable to the daggers, but they are by far the fastest and use the least stamina. That would make it fair.

Well, we know there's more DLC to come. So perhaps the Dovahkiin will go to another province and learn the arts of unarmed combat.

Going back into the world of Skyrim again, but with a crap ton of mods. Using Climates of Tamriel, a custom ENB, and the official high res texture pack makes the game look more like a high res fantasy game. It looks fantastic (only a loss of 2 fps), but I will be switching back to realistic lighting once it updates to 4.0.

The Monster Mod (I had V6) has been updated to V9 and the new creatures can be somewhat scary when enter a dungeon (climates of tamriel also affects indoors so dungeons are darker). At least there's variety now instead of bandits, draugr, or falmer. Also, immersive armors, jaysus swords, and morrowind/oblivion weapons and armor just adds even more reason to explore the dark dungeons again.

SkyRe makes the game even more challenging. I love it! Deadly combat, balanced magic, thief tools, magic duels, apocalypse spells, phendrix spells of witchcraft and sorcery, and deadly dragons make the combat a hell of a lot more fun! UFO is also a must if you want even more companions.

The newest mod that I'm getting into right is Interesting NPC's. It adds about 90+ npc into the world of Skyrim, but they all have a pretty cool backstory. It also adds a couple new dungeons and quests as well.

Guys, get this game on the pc!
