On Skyrim DLC

Joystiq follows the VGA GotY win for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim by asking Bethesda's Todd Howard about plans for DLC and other post-release support. He explains, without offering too much detail:
Howard couldn't yet share plans for DLC, but he says it will be focused on "ways to make the game better, not just have more, because the game is so big. So we're going through ideas right now, and processing everything people are doing in the game, and trying to think of ways that we can improve it." There will be multiple releases (as with Bethesda's past games), but Howard says they "don't have a timetable. They won't be quick, and they'll have a lot of meat on them."

I'm a thief, archer, paladin.. all in one! That's TES. No reason to role-play, imo, because the replayability sucks.

I do everything, accept everything. I'm a nicest and evilest possible character. I murder, I steal, I heal, I give. Anything not to miss out on any content. Ten years ago I would've gone for either thief/assassin or knight/paladin, until I realized it's a waste of time.

In Morrowind and certainly Oblivion I would agree with you, but the perks system and certain faction choices add a lot of roleplaying ability to Skyrim.

I have a "main" who did the Imperial side and everything but the Dark Brotherhood and I have an archer side character doing the Dark Brotherhood, Thieves Guild and Stormcloaks stuff.

I did all that with my main, except for the Stormcloak line of course. With a bit of discipline I might've done the same thing as you but the Stormcloaks weren't worth it. I'd rather just run around as a demi-god doing absplutely everything except for that questline. In this way you'd get enough points to invest in perks that are worth it. Yesterday I invested an hour in lvling my lvl 40 main to Smithing 90 from 35. Didn't feel like rerolling a char. I needed that daedric set!

I don't feel like I'm missing out on that Stormcloak questline. I'm not playing for the short and miserable main-quest anyway.
