Skyrim DLC for PS3 Update

Aggravation over  Skyrim PS3 DLC release eats at gamers. Dawnguard for PS3, is still a hopeful dream as well as Hearthfire, these are both available for Xbox 360. Recent tweets given by one of the people from Bethesda may shine light to what seemed like a lost cause.

There has been earlierrants on Twitter to Bethesda as they continue damage control over the lack of DLC availability for the Playstation 3. As reported by Product Reviews website, Pete Hines, the Vice President of PR and Marketing at Bethesda sent out a recent tweet response to a Twitter member, which claims that a PS3 version of the DLC is still being worked on. Pete Hines tweeted:

“@NazDaBaz_MTW not cancelled, still working on it. The process of “trying things” just isn’t a quick one.”

With reading this statement, the only thing we can hope for is that PS3 owners get to experience the full effects of Skyrim soon.

Resident Evil 6 Demo…All or Nothing?

Today I downloaded  the demo of Resident Evil 6, and right away I have to say that my inner child kicked in and it was on from that point. Resident Evil 6 has aesthetically pleasing graphics, great crisp sound, and as far as the demo would let me looked to be a great interface. Now one of the issues I ran into on several different occasions, was the controls. I don’t know how many times I got planted firmly on my back because of a concussion shot from a sniper, or getting knocked down by knife wielding lunatics! The controls when you start are nice  and hold up to a Resident Evil title, but then you get into the cover system, and it looks like it needs much more polish and fine tuning.

Now let’s get into the Gameplay. Wow what an experience, they have a hail of bullets, the enemies use cover, and the AI is intelligent when it comes to tactics. I managed to get flanked on several occasions while i was busy shooting one B.O.W. I was getting knifed by another. Throughout the entire demo I was held in suspense, waiting to see what was lurking around the corner and what could be hiding in the corridors and windows. I would like to say that as long as the game  stays along with the demo gameplay, this will easily be rated an 8 or 9 by the famous video game sites.

Now the only hang ups I had in this play through would be the cover system, while it is an excellent cover system it is not excellent cover controls. When I referred to being planted on my back by snipers I was trying to take cover behind the sandbags and instead of going back into crouch after firing, Chris  just stood there like a deer in headlights would fit the description. While cover is an excellent addition I would have to implore to Capcom to please fix the cover transitions, they are breaking the immersion factor.

So in short I would say that resident Evil 6 is a great game despite the minor hang-ups with pleasing graphics, excellent sound quality  I would rate this a must buy come release day.

Capcom announces DLC for Resident Evil 6

Capcom has announced three new gameplay modes coming to Resident Evil 6 as post-launch downloadable content:

  • Survivors Mode will let players respawn as enemies when they’re killed and attack humans. Killing two characters will allow players to respawn as a human, and the last man or team standing wins.
  • Predator Mode has one player take the role of the Ustanak, a “fearsome B.O.W.” that other players will have to try to kill. Players will have to try to kill the Ustanak before time runs out, “or at least survive until the end of the session.”
  • Siege Mode will have two teams (one human, one enemy) and a single non-playable character. The human team will be tasked with protecting the NPC, while the other team will try to kill them. If the NPC is still alive when the game ends, the human team wins.

All three modes will support up to six players and will be played using maps from Mercenaries mode. For now, we have heard these are a timed exclusive for Xbox 360 and at this time I can not speculate or confirm what will be for the other platforms. The three modes will be trackable on ResidentEvil.net, the stat-tracking service Capcom announced last month.

Resident Evil 6 will hit Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on October 2nd with a PC version to follow later. Capcom will release a new demo later this month, featuring content from three of the game’s four campaigns.

So you want to build a home.

So this article is in response to many requests I see on forums, chatroom, blogs and much more. This article will help guide you through Skyrims latest addition known as Hearthfire. Lets face it the DLC instructions are not informative at all, you start the game and wait. Wow thats Earth-shattering Information. *SARCASM*

This guide will start from right after you have downloaded Skyrim for Xbox 360. So Keep your hands, feet and head on the couch at all times and Here is the Guide.

First things first you are going to need to buy one of the three plots of land that are available, once you purchase the land you will be issued a title deed. Here are the locations

  • Helijarchen Hall— which you can purchase in Dawnstar from the Jarl’s Steward. The land is located West of Blizzard Rest and south of Fort Dunstand, and will cost you 5,000 gold. Then you will have to use the drafting table to create your blueprints for the small house, don’t worry It gets much bigger! Once you have acquired the materials and went through all of your crafting options at the carpenters workbench you will see the next set of available options.
  • Lakeview Manor— which you can purchase from the Jarls steward in Falkreath. The land is located North of Pinewatch. Like Helijarchen Hall this location will also cost 5,000 gold. It is unique to the other 2 building sites because it has the apiary(beehouse)
  •  Windstad Manor— which you can purchase from the Jarls steward in Morthal, and this building site is located South of High Gate Ruins. Now this site is unique from the other 2 building site because it features the fish Hatchery, and this site will also cost you 5,000 gold.

So after reading all of this information your probably asking “dK Which spit of land should I purchase?” Have no fear readers you can Buy all 3 building sites, thats right you can have all the benefits of each piece of land. So Now you have the locations of where to buy and where to find, onto the next stage…BUILDING

  1. Set the foundation using the drafting table, and selecting the small house blueprints.
  2. Move to the Carpenter’s Workbench make sure you have the required Quarried Stone and Sawn Logs, aside from your starting materials stone and clay can be mined from nearby sources around your plot of land, but logs can only be purchased from a Saw Mill.
  3. Once you have completed the Small House more options will appear such as adding the Main Hall which consists of a cellar, dining hall, a back room, and 2 bedrooms upstairs.
  4. Now we move onto Wing construction, and no not wings you can fly with, not yet anyways.
  5. West Wing — Now the west wing contains either  Enchanters Tower, More bedrooms, or the Greenhouse.
    North Wing– The available options are Trophy Room, Storage Room, or Alchemy Laboratory
    East Wing — Here your choices are Library, Armory, or a Kitchen
  6. Now after the main hall has been constructed you can choose to remodel your small house into the Entry Hall

An Example of a finished home!

Now I’m sure your probably wondering do I have to do all of this myself? The answer is simple, Yes! But if you act now and read further we will throw in your very own Steward!! Thats right readers they allow you to appoint a Steward to buy raw materials, and equip it with furnishings.
Followers can be appointed your  House Steward. Housecarls can be appointed Steward and doesnt take away a valuable follower(I chose this option) now your probably asking yourself What else can the Shiny new Steward do? Well, your shiny new Steward can be used to purchase Bards, Carriage drivers, Cows, Chickens, and Horses. And help fend off any assaults or Raids on your home.

So im sure by now you are completely pumped up about the adoption sytem, and let me tell you.. I didnt find it that awesome, but others just may. Once your house is finished, the option to move in with your spouse or adopt a child is available. With the children after you adopt them you can give gifts, play games, or instruct them to do chores. There is also an option for the kids to keep pets.

The Children that can be adopted are:

  • Lucia – Child found in begging near the Gildergreen in Whiterun.
  • Blaise – Child found working as a stable boy at Katla’s Farm.
  • Sofie – Child found selling flowers in Windhelm.
  • Aleson – Child found working for the miners in Dawnstar.
  • Samuel – Child from Honorhall Orphanage in Riften.

Lucia

REMEMBER Occasionally the home will  be infested by skeevers, Giants have been known to attack, and unsavory characters have been known to lurk around that must be dispatched.

Is Skyrim Hearthfire worth your money?

A Closer Look into Skyrim Hearthfire

Skyrim Hearthfire Release Info

Is Skyrim Hearthfire worth your money?

With this official add-on to The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, you can buy land and build your own home from the ground up – from a simple one-room cottage to a sprawling compound complete with an armory, alchemy laboratory, stable, garden, and more. Use all-new tools like the drafting table and carpenter’s workbench to transform quarried stone, clay, and sawn logs into structures and furnishings. Even transform your house into a home by adopting children.

So, Hearthfire was released on Xbox 360 today, and I am a huge Skyrim Fan, so this purchase was necessary. So does Skyrim: Hearthfire Build the house of your dreams, or does it make you want to scream?

This is setting the foundation for your new home.

Once you set the foundation the real fun begins, you have to use the drafting table and carpenters bench to construct everything. Then you will need to mine, or buy the raw materials for building the rest of your house. To some this could come off as menial and somewhat irritating, but to others this will do exactly as it is meant to, Immerse you into the game further. I myself at times found myself frustrated, and entertained all at the same time.

Your house now has 4 walls and a doorway

As you continue to track down materials and run back and forth from the shops, lumber mill, clay and stone deposits, and the crafting bench your home starts to take form. I think the concept in this Expansion is worth the money alone, but add in the ability to appoint a steward to your home, and this job becomes easier. Not to mention the bandit raids, and skeever infestations.

Now we are adding the roof for our house

Now the small house is completed with garden and animal patch

This isn’t the final house but its the start of the main entrance once you get more advanced into the home building process. Now we will move onto the family aspect of this magnificent addition. So do you think your ready to become a parent in Skyrim? Do we really want more responsibilities of taking care of a full-fledged family? Would you trade in your alchemy lab for a kid’s bedroom set? Trust me you will find all this out once you make your choice to adopt a child.

and this is the Child system
