I've actually seen more "real" people posting about winning these Taco Bell giveaways then any other contests.

that's cool. With how many they've given away I figured it's gotta get to a "I know a guy who knows a guy that one" saturation.

If I buy a physical copy of Forza, does it come with a code for a PC download?

A guy I am friends with, won the Xbox One X last year. Got it from the promotion about 2 weeks before it was publicly released for sale. He was sending me pictures of it and the Forza game and I was pissed as hell.

Dante's Inferno is a good God Of War rip-off that is a fun game to spend a few hours on.

Got the Battlefield pass, thanks! Haven't played the game but would like to give it a try when it goes free*.

*With Gold subscription, of course--I know I'm paying for that.

Not a bad month. Dante's Inferno was a lot of fun at the time. Not sure how it holds up now. And it seems like they have given away just about every AC game now

Race The Sun really looks like a POS though. Looks like a forgettable cell phone game.

Race the Sun was also a PS+ freebie way back when.

Also, this today:

Just Cause, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate HD, and Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 are coming to Xbox One Backward Compatibility today

http://mjr.mn/BackCompat

I have both of those Castlevania games, so maybe I'll actually get around to playing them now

Well this is a big FU for people that already bought the game. PUBG is free (to keep) for a limited time.
