Impressive to see how patching has evolved, really. Now they're literally changing the game as opposed to fixing bugs.

Despite the crap Bethesda gets for having bugs or issues at launch, which many think is to be expected for a game this size, they've always been good at providing a lot of support. Both Oblivion and Fallout 3 received patches that actually provided slightly upgraded graphical tweaks for the console versions, which is almost unheard of in console gaming. Fixes, new mechanics, etc. They seem to find ways to work in things other companies would only add into DLC that you have to pay money for.

Agreed.

And when BethSoft has you paying for stuff... it's usually a good deal. The only one I was not a fan of was in Fallout 3. I think it was... Project Steel? The continuation + Pittsburgh one. I mean, it was a fair DLC, don't get me wrong.

Just... don't ever, ever make me pay to continue playing a game. That really pissed me off.

That is really cool, and it's nice of them to do it for free.

Just passed the 200 hours mark; and the quest list is getting mighty short now. I've been pretty consistently able to wring out extra drops of gameplay by planning epic slow travel voyages and riding through regions I skimmed through before. Last night I rode from Markarth through the Reach to Falkreath, found three new locations, and completed a small quest. 333 locations discovered, I've read online there's about 350 or so overall.

Also discovered that I'm a stone cold idiot: the Apothecary's Satchel in your home is meant to be used to store all your ingredients. I unloaded 70 weight of alchemy crap I had been carrying around and suddenly realized why it always seemed I was short on space.

Might need to upgrade the difficulty to Master, as well. With a set of enchanted armor, even Dragons are a breeze again.

I updated my Xbox with the new stuff. The underwater visuals are amazing now and the new kill cams are pretty cool. I shot an assassin in the ass with an arrow in slow motion. The game seems a little sluggish, though; I went into a bandit fort and it lagged really bad and the load screens take longer.

The bandit hideout was Faldar's Tooth, which was pretty intense. There must have been eight bandits just on the outside and they yelled "Release the dogs, boys!" and then there were wolves, too. I summoned a Dremora and called Odahviing, who killed most of the bandits and then went over to Goldenglow Estate and started setting it on fire. Oh, Odahviing...

Skyrim froze today for the first time. (It made me feel nostalgic for Morrowind.) I think that patch screwed it up.

DLC announcement tomorrow maybe?

It could end up being a completely different project, but keep your fingers crossed for it being Skyrim related.

I finally got my Smithing to 100 and made some dragon armor. Wearing that and armed with Chillrend, I am now an unstoppable tank.
