Guard That Dawn!
says: Computer and Video Games

JDL: The new Skrim DLC, Dawnguard will focus on a story that involves the vampire lord Harkon who is trying to use the Elder Scroll to…. blot out the sun.

Chris: Geez man! Was someone at Bethesda watching the Who Shot Mr. Burns episodes of The Simpsons again?

JDL: Players can become a vampire hunter and slay Harkon using crossbows (which take longer than the standard bow to reload but can stagger enemies) and armored trolls as followers.

Chris: It’s like Van Helsing, but better!

JDL: Players that end up becoming children of the night can become flying vampire lords and they can gain access to a Sith-like power known as Vampiric Grip that suspends enemies in the air while draining their health. Unfortunately, vampires will be attacked on sight, so players need to stick to a human form.

Chris: It’s like Underworld, but better!

JDL: And it seems no matter what alignment players choose, they’ll have access to new shout called Soul Tear which lets player steal souls and create undead companions.

Chris: Need more info? Here’s a list of Vampire and Werewolf perks, respectively.

Power of the Grave – 50 point bonus to health, magicka and stamina as a Vampire Lord.
Detect All Creatures – Requirement: Power of the Grave
Mist Form – Turn yourself into an invulnerable cloud of mist while regenerating your health, magicka, and stamina.
Requires: Detect All Creatures
Supernatural Reflexes -You move quicker, while enemies move slower.
Requires: Mist Form
Blood Healing – Killing a person with a power attack bite restores all your health.
Requires: Power of the Grave
Unearthly Will – Night powers and Blood Magic cost 33% less.
Requires: Power of the Grave
Poison Talons – Melee attacks deal 20 points of poison damage.
Requires: Unearthly Will/Blood Healing
Night Cloak – A shroud of bats feed on enemies within melee range.
Requires: Poison Talons
Vampiric Grip – Blood Magic: Can pull a creature to you from a distance, and do choking damage once it’s close.
Requires: Power of the Grave

Gorging – Feeding heals twice as much health.


ME3 DLC BS?

says: Computer and Video Games

JDL: Mass Effect 3’s Extended Cut DLC is available for free through Xbox Live.

Chris: And what a whopper it is weighing in at a whopping 1.9GB. Once again proving the PS3’s inferiority, European PS3 owners will have to wait an additional week for the free content. Wamp-wamp, so sad!

JDL: The add-on content expands on the endings of Mass Effect 3 and “provides more of the answers and closure that players have been asking for”.

Chris: An ending that needs to be explained? Ack, that doesn’t sound like part of a good game.

JDL: Agreed.

    Those are some pretty sweet deals going on right now. Might have to bust out the wallet.

    Those are some sweet deals. I’d rather play video games on days I”m bored or something. It’s better to be outside playing sports. I’d rather go play airsoft with my buds and use my wingun to kick their butts! I get awesome deals from http://www.airsplat.com/ and great tips from teh reps.
