It’s getting colder outside, and Starbucks is full of Christmas decorations. It’s not even Thanksgiving, and those jingle bells are starting to seep into commercials. We know. Hey, at least it didn’t start before Halloween. Heck, it probably never will, because stores can make money from both holidays. Maybe you’re avoiding the car commercials and those stupid giant bows, and the green bean casserole ads (no one ever eats that anyway) by playing Red Dead Redemption 2. Sure, the game starts off in the snow, but there is so much to distract you from the impending holidays that you’re likely to forget what century you live in. Still, everyone needs a break from something.
If skinning deer, cleaning your guns and deciding on your facial hair length is getting to be a bit much for you, we’ve got some great ways to distract you for a bit. Here are the best deals on Xbox One for the week ending November 11.
