the Elder Scrolls

Every day the internet produces an astounding amount of goodies and gems. Most hilarious, some amusing, but all worth at least a few seconds of your time. We here at Nerd Bastards try to bring you the best bits of news and nerdery the webz has to offer, with a bit of snark thrown in. But sometimes not everything makes the cut. Monday through Friday we’ll be bringing you our inbox leftovers, our forgotten bookmarks, the nerdy bits that simply slipped through the cracks. You can submit items to Nerdy Bits by emailing us at

Well reality, it’s been nice but you’re going to be taking the backseat soon. Bethesda has released the trailer for Dawnguard, the first DLC for Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. From the two and a half minute slice that we get (Bethesda says they’ll release more details ‘soon’), I have to say it looks pretty sweet. It’s all vampires vs vampire hunters this time around, and we are talking the good nasty mean vampires, not the sparkly ones.

Dawngaurd will hit X-Box Live this summer, a steal at just 1600 Microsoft points. PC and PS3 users will have to wait a little longer. Check out the trailer after the jump.
