If it's in Whiterun, you buy the furniture from the same guy that sold you the house - the Jarl's Steward (?).  I never bothered buying a bigger house as that one had all that I needed, but I'm assuming that the set-up was the same

I never really bothered with the house at all. I did buy the one in Whiterun but I rarely used it. I'd come home every now and then and just throw some dragon bones and scales on the floor, look at Lydia for a while, ignore my wife and leave again.

the house in whiterun is handy for dumping stuff and it's thebest located of all the houses. I use the one in Whiterun for dumping weapons and armour all the one off stuff I don't want to sell and I like the secret room. Set foot in the others only once only bought them cos I had money to burn.

That'll be Lydia and her orgies. The wife downstairs is oblivious to it all, she just stares at the wall all day long.

Nah, I killed off Lydia ages ago.  These are Whiterun guards that are sniffing about.....

Oh look, it's for the Xbox

Getting an idea of just how far up Microsoft's backside, Bethesda have crawled......

Kind of got my obsession back at the weekend and spent a stupid amount of time on it only to download an update for the game this evening and it's done nothing but freeze on me. Think the obsession may just have been killed.....

Thinking of getting it on Steam though......

More a case of how far into Bethesda's wallet Microsoft have crawled I'd imagine.

I'm still waiting for the GotY edition somewhere down the line. There's nothing about this DLC that's likely to change my mind about that.

Sounds like something that should be free, it's probably already a mod anyway. 400 points isn't much but why get this when I could get The Walking Dead instead?

I'm getting really frustrated by this game, just because it's so bloody broken. I want to love this so much more, but for the second time a questline has bugged out and won't let me continue. First was the companions, which broke on the penultimate quest because I'd already cleared out the place I was supposed to go to and now the imperials one doesn't want to let me start one of the quests for apparently no good reason.

The worst thing is I can't stop but going back for more!

Some potentially bad news for PS3 owners regarding Skyrim's DLC.

Clicky

I have to agree with the first sentence of that article

quote:

I can't help but consider at this stage that it might have been a whole lot less work, stress and heartache for all concerned if Bethesda had just decided to steer clear of the PS3 this generation.


Their PS3 releases have been an absolute PR disaster for Bethesda.

Or it's a case of how easier it is to program on the 360? How many cross platform games have been better on the PS3 compared to the 360?

So, bought Hearthfire, so far it's like a high end Farmville, bit slow building as getting iron is a pain in the arse, but the first house is shaping up nicely.

weird side effect though, since installing it I'm getting attacked by dragons all the time. Seems to be everytime I quick travel, anyone else had this problem?

This - not to pick on the PS3 or anything but Bethesda have openly stated they are having issues creating the extra content on the PS3 due to the original bugs that still haunt the game today.

Shame really I feel sorry for PS3 owners over things like this, not the best is it.

Some possible light at the end of the tunnel for PS3 owners regarding the Skyrim DLC.

Finally got round to finishing the main quest to this. Was fairly underwhelming to be honest, and very anti-climatic. Nothing changes one bit?!? No one thanks you or anything just the same old miserable buggers wandering around.

I was a bit miffed so I decided to go on a killing spree in Whiterun.

Still I have a ton of sidequests still to get through so may go back to it...

Skyrim - "Dragonborn" DLC imminent? - 16/10/2012 3:25:31 PM

Anyone catch the latest DLC gossip?

quote:


Although Bethesda has announced nothing as yet, fans on the official forums have been tinkering around inside the files of the latest Skyrim patch and found references to something called ‘Dragonborn’. Many of the files are preceded with the phrase ‘DLC2’, which is also thought to refer to the second story-based download (the recent Hearthfire was more of a mini-expansion). As fans will know Dragonborn is the title of the game’s main hero, so it could refer to something else in this context – although the fact that Bethesda was previously caught trademarking the name for downloadable content does seem a bit of a smoking gun. Either way, files named ‘DragonMounted’ definitely seem to refer to something that’s not possible in the current version of the game: riding your own dragon. Other details hint at a return to locations from The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind. There are references to places such as Solstheim, Telvanni, Castle Karstaag, Raven Rock, and Miraak Temple.
Previously fans discovered what seem to be versions of areas from Morrowind and Oblivion already in the game, but not visible when you play it.
The final titbit from the files appears to be references to new categories of armour, named Bonemold, Chitin, Nordic, and Stalhrim.
It’s not known when the downloadable content is due to be released but previously Bethesda has favoured a December release, just before Christmas, for its major downloads.

So, will we (and by "we" I mean 360 players- sorry Hobbsy!) find ourselves flying high above Morrowind in the next installment?  I bloody well hope so!

They'd best get cracking with releasing all the planned DLC for this. At this rate I'm never going to be able to hold out for the GotY edition.

That genuinely sounds like a kick ass bit of DLC.

I haven't played Skyrim in fecking ages - I just havent had the time, sadly. I'd love to be able to reignite my sordid sweaty lust affair with it with the DLC. Sadly I'nm on PS3 so it wont be happening any time soon. Shame, as I'd read back this thread and some of the adventures I had and it really reminded my how much fun I had punching cabbages and haggard old women.

I have acquired a copy of Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. Should I play it? I imagine it might seem a bit antiquated now, yep?

EDIT: So...that's a no, then?

You should absolutely play it DC!  OK, so it's been eclipsed somewhat by Skyrim, but it's still a hell of a game; huge, engrossing and totally addictive.  As an RPG it still stands as an equal, if not better, game than most other RPGs on the consoles.  You'll soon see hours of your life being dedicated to it.

Cool, well that's all the encouragement I need. I've actually had the 5th anniversary edition since last year with all the DLC - got it fairly cheap - but then couldn't be arsed playing it. I'll just have to tolerate the withering looks of despair and pity from my wife; although she does love her fantasy novels so maybe I can get her into it.
