Lost texts of Skyrim: the Dawnguard Diaries

Mike and Ed demonstrate that a problem shared is a problem doubled

Once upon a time, two not-quite-legendary heroes of Skyrim set out to review the game's Dawnguard DLC pack, a decent enough add-on which tasks the Dragonborn with either aiding or averting a vampiric plot to overthrow the sun. The original plan was to write up the whole thing as a two-part diary piece - the parallel tales of myself and Mike "Woe Unto The Quitter" Channell, playing the parts of devious Vampire Lord and Dawnguard avenger respectively.... read more

This was fun to read and I think probably fun to write. I got as much of a gist about Dawnguard from the review you eventually chiseled out for us, which I guess is a good thing, but this diary idea could've worked as an online feature piece - maybe in two parts? Cheers for posting it as it stood at the end of the experiment, anyway.

I'd like to see more of these. Pick a game you haven't played through yet that you really want to (better an RPG or open worlder) then go through it and relay your experience back to us in a series of blog posts. Would be a fantastic read I think.

Loved this article, but I suspect most readers wouldn't have had the patience for a 50,000 word review of Dawnguard. It would be nice to see some in-depth reviews of certain games, even by a different reviewer a couple of months down the line, they would still be of use to those of us who have a "buy it when it's cheap" list.

To be honest, I wasn't expecting the Spanish inquisition...
