I'm still waiting to see the thieves den on the 360 marketplace. I called xbox support and they said that the servers in all markets do not get updated at the same time. But, its been 3 weeks at least.

That's weird. I was able to download it the day it was released. I didn't know that the different servers effect what is available.

I'm running a new character (My son erased my level 37 guy ), so I'm trying to get into the Dark Brotherhood (again). I killed a citizen, and received the message (Your action were viewed from a force...), but I still haven't been visited by anyone while I sleep. It's been about 7 days of gametime, still nothing. Shouldn't the DB guy had visited me by now? Am I missing something?? The first character I had was a breeze, and I didn't even know about the DB at that time, lol.

It means you have the detect life effect on you. All creatures should glow pink - even the undead like a zombie.

I download it and played it for a few mintues during lunch, looks pretty fun. It took me awhile to get to the cavern, but this looks like a good download.

I just got to the new DLC, and so far my favorite thing is being able to pick up dropped torches. Sweet!

I'm in love with the new DLC. So much good stuff down there. I've already raised my armor rating from 40 to nearly 70 just from this alone.

Not to mention all the things I'm not taking back to my house. You can make a killing, money-wise, with this DLC. Hell, I've been fooling around in it for nearly 4 hours, and still have not got the damn razor yet or even gotten close to it.

Two BIG thumbs up for it. Everyone should get it.

Damn it, my Marketplace points are down to 150. I'll have to buy another card tomorrow, since this is out and Street Fighter II Hyper should be out later this month.

Why not just buy them straight from the Marketplace? No tax purchased that way and you don't have to leave the house.

I get a discount when I buy the cards where I work, so it's cheaper. Plus I have store credit, so I don't even have to spend cash.

They do charge tax when you purchase the points on the Marketplace, at least they do in NY.

Level up?

I just reached 100 on each of my "major" skills, the ones that allow you to level up. Does this mean I am done leveling up? I peaked at level 45? If not, how do you continue to level up?

Thanks.

From what I gathered, some people choose to get arrested in order to lose points, and relevel.

Are the 360 downloads the same as for the pc?

Reason that I ask is that when I saw Mehrunes' Razor up for download on the 360 marketplace, the size was under 1 mb. On the page listed above, which is for PC, it states it is almost 3 mb. I know they wouldn't be the same size, but would think they might be close in size.

Has anyone got the Thieves Den and this new one? Both state that they give new spells to the game. I haven't played Oblivion in a while, since I beat it, but if these are both worth it and add a significant new amount to the game, I might be tempted. Or at least to start a new game. I'm assuming that in a new game, any downloaded content would be available from the start?

I have both. Once you complete the theives den there will be a bunch of merchants/trainers available to you with new spells. I haven't noticed anything like that from Mehrune's Razor yet. I "completed" the quest but didn't explore every part of it or gone back since so I probably just missed it.

The Thieves Den spells didn't really wow me and to be honest I can't think of any spell that sticks out enough for me to recall it. I'm kind of upset that the ship is all broken up and not as cool as I had previously thought. The trainers in the Den are ok but I haven't even touched a bow so the one is useless to me. I'd be more bummed out if the Tower download hadn't kicked so much ass. I'm still coming down off of that great purchase. My buddy bought the Razor download and we chatted the other night while he played. It sounded like fun and I might just cave in and get it.
