Skyrim, Hearthfire, Dawnguard, PS3: Thought For The (Fri)Day
Hearthfire is said to be the next Skyrim DLC pack. But whatever happened to Dawnguard on PS3? Do we even need it anymore? Want it?
Skyrim’s new DLC is rumoured to be one Hearthfire, if rumblings across the interwebs are to be believed.
“What about Dawnguard?” you cry, obviously, “we really wanted to do that vampire thing that they got on Xbox 360 and PC!” you add, breathlessly. Well… umm… we might just have been forgotten about there.
There’s been no word on Dawnguard PS3 for quite a while now, with the last we heard being something like ‘it’s not good enough on PS3 yet so we’re not bringing it out yet’. We paraphrase.
But Hearthfire will surely start picking up the pace soon enough – does it mean Dawnguard is going to be quietly forgotten and left to die?
On one hand, we hope not. We want the full experience on PS3. We want everything. Well, we even want mods, but that’s unlikely to happen. But we want all the official releases.
On the other hand, Dawnguard is a bit ass, by all accounts. It’s buggy – downright broken in places – and retains little of that endearing quality that allows you to overlook these issues, as in the original Skyrim release.
Well, the original Skyrim post-lag patch.
God, this is like an abusive relationship. Skyrim PS3 does so much wrong, but we love it all the same. Maybe Hearthfire can fix that. Who knows?
