Now, do NOT get us wrong: we love the idea of Skyrim's new "Hearthfire" DLC. To us, it's best described as a cross between Skyrim and The Sims.

In "Hearthfire," DLC (initially?) exclusive to Xbox 360, you'll be able to build your own house, decorate and renovate it, and hire people to take care of it... and you.

"Hearthfire" will be available on Xbox 360 from 4 September at the cost of 400 Microsoft Points.
