Oblivion Mehrunes Razor

Oblivion gets it's fifth download to date on xbox360, for 250 points ($3.12, €2.47) you can explore the largest dungeon in all Cyrodil, earn the Mehrunes razor (with the ability to kill foes instantly), discover 17 new magical items.

"The lost Ayleid City Varsa Baalim has been unearthed by a rogue Telvanni arch-mage, in pursuit of a fearsome Daedric Artifact, Mehrunes Razor, which he believes will give him the power he needs to topple the Imperial reign - but what horrors lie in wait beneath the Valus mountains; and can you overcome them to claim Mehrunes Razor as your own?"

The download is small by comparison to the others and it's the most expensive todate. Originally Bethesda in response to uproar over the cost of horse armour responded:

"we’re still trying to find the right spot, so we’re putting a much larger plugin out for less than the last one and we'll see what happens"

Well they bucked that trend very quickly. Mehrunes' Razor weighs in at a skimpy 844kb and costs 250 points . This time around they've put out a very small plugin for much more than the last one. You've done well Bethesda, don't bite the hand that feeds you.

Thieves Den weighed in at 2.31mb cost 150 points $1.87
Wizards Tower 7.56mb cost 150 points $1.87
Orrery 9.87mb cost cost 150 points $1.87
Horse Armour 2.56mb cost 200 points $2.50

Can't help but feeling this is a major (like really really big; absolutely huge actually) rip off.

Charging money for horse armor? What in he double hockey stick stupidity is that.

The Elderly said...

The armour should have been included in the game, they took some stick on that one.

I haven't downloaded the mission yet (still busy trying to get back in favour with the fighters guild). Just hope it's worth every cent, because if not i'm got the perfect vehicle to launch a tirade.

the gamer pictures and themes, now there's a rip off!

I'm sure there must be away of transfering the (free) PC material to the Xbox..

The Elderly said...

as far as the xbox is concerned there's not much left they can't do. The 360 they've found a hack using windows media centre (not media connect), not sure if a pc plugin or mod would work on the 360 though.

gnome said...

Why not..it's the same game engine after all.. It should work.

The Elderly said...

the pc plugin is 2.89mb and also requires a region specific patch to work. The 360 plugin (presuming we've been patched already) is only 844kb.

Unless they put more grass in the pc plugin we have a problem already.

gnome said...

Hmmm...
So, that's why not.

The Elderly said...

hmmmm maybe we could squash the pc file?

gnome said...

..perhaps..
