Xbox 360 Will Get Skyrim DLC Before PS3, PC

However, it'll have to fix its problems first.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim was released today for the PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. If you aren't sure which version to get, maybe this will help: Skyrim's first two DLC packs will be timed exclusives to the Xbox 360. Gamers will get them on the 360 a month before they're released on the PC and PS3.

The press release states that, "When the last dragon has been slayed and the last book opened, Xbox LIVE will be your destination for exclusive access to The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim add-on content. 30 days before you find it anywhere else, the first two content drops for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim will be available exclusively on Xbox LIVE." The first DLC will be released for the Xbox 360 "when the last dragon has been slayed" and on the PC and PlayStation 3 a month later.

However, Bethesda will have to fix a few problems the Xbox 360 version is having. The 360 version has scaling texture issues and may not run smoothly when installed to the system's hard drive. Bethesda has assured gamers a fix is in development and will be released in its next title update.

"Skyrim uses a lot of dynamic streaming systems, including textures. We've seen a few reports of certain textures temporarily scaling down on the Xbox 360, and not scaling back up," Bethesda said on its official forums. "We have verified that this issue does not occur when playing off the disk and when the game is fully cached (not installed). Skyrim makes heavy use of the Xbox 360 caching system, and caches over the normal course of play while in menus or interiors. This cache can be wiped when other games are played or when the user manually removes it."

Blaster Master Review Rewind

My earliest years in gaming was a magical time. Every new game I discovered pioneered a fresh mechanic I hadn’t seen before. I'll never forget the moment when my brother's best friend came over with his NES games to show off Blaster Master. I marveled as the story elements unfolded while melancholic music played in the attract mode. Pressing the start button then transitioned me to the opening shot of an armored vehicle speeding off while the triumphant music swelled to a crescendo as I journeyed into the unknown. Never had I witnessed anything like that at the time. While everything I just described is nothing spectacular these days, Blaster Master still has a few gameplay elements that still hold up quite nicely.
