I noticed there wasn't any games to give away. If anyone wants Stellaris - STEAM Key...

Just reply "I want" and I'll leave it up to @Norton to draw for it. I will PM Norton the key and he can post the winner at his Leisure tonight.
What a great looking game. I'd be in, but too much of a backlog of others to play!

I never even thought about that. I have humble bundle monthly ,so the keys are piling up. Even though this giveaway is finished, I could certainly be counted on for a group of keys in the next giveaway/challenge.

Some one take it, or I'll give it away to Vanguard beta guys. noon central time zone tomorrow and if its not gone I'll give it away somewhere else.. I'm trying to play it forward but this is downing me :confused: likwe really downing me like you wouldn't believe.. I try and pass on the goodness but know one wants it? :fear:
@Norton noon tomorrow or I RE-claim it and pass it to someone that wants it.... :confused:

or @Norton let me know if you want to pass it along in the next challenge? either way I'm good.

I've been asked why from another group why I haven't accepted it and I said I passed it along to a crunching challenge. I'm paying it forward is all, since I have no rig to crunch ATM... I got a very expensive trip to Australia I need to worrie about ATM and crunching can wait fir now.. SO TAKE MY GAME! :kookoo:

It's 1 AM in our time zone ,so he is almost 100% sleeping . we have a massive snowstorm coming tomorrow and he works at like 5 AM , i'm going to assume his days going to be pretty busy just like everyone who wants to get something done before The store makes traveling impossible.

This giveaways finished, it ended about a week ago, but if you want to donate it, send him the key ,and he'll hold onto it until the next giveaway. There's normally like one or two a year unfortunately you just missed the most recent one.

Can also send it to me through private message and I'll hold onto it until next giveaway.

Dont let it get you down. Im sure everyone appreciates the effort (myself included), but everyone may just have something going on, it's possible the game isnt their cup of tea, or now that the contest is over, they unwatched the thread and just arent seeing the generosity.

Whatever the case, dont let it get ou down. We all appreciate the effort. :toast:

In the past, when there's a full PC to give away & games, norton or I will include it in an email or a private message to the winner, or I'll install it during the build process when I build the computer. Plus there's all the challenges that Norton does during the year for WCG and f@h. It will definitely find a home

Benchmark Scores It's not to bad.. More importantly, it works!!
project cars was supposed to be good.
forza, but i dont know if its platform specific.

i gotta hit the sack,
Project Car does get my vote and it very good fun with a steering wheel and pedals :) Very much like Grand Turismo on the Playstation or Forza on the Xbox..

Forza Horizon on the other hand is completely different and is more 'arcadey' but massive fun. Can go anywhere do anything type thing.. The latest Forza Horizon I believe can be PC or Xbox, but I'm unsure if the PC version is very fluid in comparison to the Xbox version... That said, it's one of the main reason I bought a newer Xbox One for just playing Forza Horizon... :)

Na it can always carry over to the next challenge.. I thought someone would want it but it's all cool.. Norton can keep the key till someone wants it.
