There's now a good reason for you to indulge in fast food--at least this one time, in order to get a good prize. McDonald's is giving away 14,000 Xbox One consoles as part of the ongoing partnership between the two companies.

According to Shacknews, you can easily get an Xbox One console, which comes with the Forza 5 Motorsport. All you need to do is make sure that the Southwest Chicken Premium McWrap or the Bacon Habanero Ranch Quarter Pounder is part of your order.

Winning is so easy that the report states that you can win a prize (though not necessarily the Xbox One console) with every raffle ticket you have.

There are other prizes up for grabs, including one month of Xbox Live Gold, one month of Xbox Music Pass, an episode of Enlisted 101, Bones, or Raising Hope, any one of Aqua, Ms. Splosion Man, or The Maw from Xbox Live Arcade games, or downloads of The Wolverine.

Unfortunately, Lazygamer adds that you need to be in the U.S. to avail of the promo, as it's not open anywhere else.

Fallout 4 additional details

The Fallout 4 watch continues, this time with new clues following the Winter Has Come affair.

IncGamers reports of a new hidden page discovered, which was riddled with a few more clues, one of which includes the line "SY684> OVERRIDING PROTOCOL VT-15812 WITH KEY'7667". There was also a warning that stated that an unknown enemy had been detected.

Another coded message can be seen, saying, "REV FEAR - MGSS LHM'H EVHV KBIM'R QIUBMU. CB'LZ YYG MN HBM ZQSUB ZZAY". Once translated the message now reads, "They don't know what's coming. It's a key to the great game."

For now, the Survivor 2299 web site has become a hotspot for speculation, both for fun and for real for some, with regards to how it can actually be a teaser site for Fallout 4 from Bethesda. But so far, all the clues have all been speculations by hopeful fans since the developer remains very much tight-lipped and non-commentaries.

The Elder Scrolls Online video details character progress in game

The Elder Scrolls Online is one of the awaited games coming out for next-gen console Xbox One and PS4, and on PC as well.

So far, the progress of the game has been revealed in a new video, which details the process that your character goes through. Nick Konkle, lead game designer, discusses these new systems by which you can play the game, gain experience, and become a master in particular areas of the game.

"Elder Scrolls games have always had very open-ended progression systems, and this one is no different," said Konkle. "There's a huge number of choices, and you can choose to focus on one or spread yourself amongst all of them. And of course, if you spend enough time, you can eventually master them all."

*The rumoured battle between GTA 5 developer Rockstar Games and Lindsay Lohan: Here's why it's started.

To level up, you can gain experience, find sky shards, or participate in special quests. Leveling up lets characters get points, either for attributes or skills. For attributes, you can choose to go with magicka, health, or stamina, which can influence your character's strengths in a major way. Skill points let you customise your character by focusing on which particular skill you want to master.

Morphing is also explored, and is explained to be the way by which a player can make use of a skill - by "leveling it up or morphing it. Check out the rest in the video below:
