Skyrim’s Hearthfire DLC can now be purchased on Steam for $4.99. Hearthfire is the DLC which allows you to build your own home, use new crafting tools such as the drafting table and carpenter’s workbench and you can even start adopting children.
Bethesda said as soon as information is available for Skyrim add-on content, it will notify the pubic on its blog. We’re assuming this means the PS3 version of the DLC.

While it wasn’t one of his best segments, it’s posted below. I thought the slow-mo bit was better, actually, I laughed my ass off , but maybe I’m just weird.
