I am actually impressed I finished Dawnguard so soon after I finished Borderlands: The Pre-sequel (same day actually).
The Dawnguard add-on brings around 39 new quests which is including the main and side quests. It focuses on the conflict between the newly formed Dawnguard, a faction of vampire hunters and the Volkihar vampire clan led by Lord Harkon. The root of their conflict? Harkon’s obsession with a prophecy that may allow vampires to walk in the sun. Choose your side. Will you help Harkon meet his goal of blocking out the sun, or will you join the Dawnguard and thwart Harkon’s scheme?
Finally, getting back into Skyrim and playing the official addons that I didn’t get a chance to play or in Dawnguard’s case, didn’t finish. I am really hoping that Dawnguard won’t have any issues this time round, last time I didn’t have a backup save that was before starting that. Hopefully no more game-breaking bugs this time round. Anyways, been really looking forward to playing the Dragonborn addon since it was released around in Feburary, 2013. I know, I am really slow. Don’t judge [especially you Desmond *mini glare*].
Also please note that this review will contain spoilers to much of the story for the main quest-line for Dragonborn. I try to keep this to a minimum but there are some points I wish to discuss that end up revealing parts of the story.
I finally got around to playing, or at least start on the Dawnguard DLC. I was extremely eager to get started on this DLC, only to be severely disappointed. So this will be based on what I have done so far and my general impressions.
Warning, there are spoilers included in this post. Read at your own risk.
So in Hearthfire, you are allowed to purchase 3 different plots of land in different holds. As well, adopt children.
It is fine overall. However I felt that the manors could have been more unique. The only thing that differentiates them from each other, other than their location is their “unique feature”. It is a nice touch but, I felt that more could be done to make them unique. Such as different architectural styles would be nice. All the manors look and feel the same to me, so different building styles would be great. Since you are a Thane, hence someone with influence in the hold, I think you should be able to hire some guards from the hold to protect your manor. Or at least be able to build walls to provide protection and prevent wildlife or bandits getting in easily. Maybe be able to build some kind of fort, maybe even be a Jarl of your own hold (okay maybe not)?
I totally forgotten to make a review for Skyrim. So without further ado, we shall review it immediately!
So, right off the bat the first thing I noticed was how amazing the graphics looked. It was extremely highly detailed and literally HD. The game models were a lot more better looking and humanoid compared to the blocky versions of Oblivion. Although I never understood what was with Elder Scrolls and the protagonist always starting off as a prisoner of some sort.
