School is in full swing. The slew of holidays for the beginning of the school year are over and it’s time to hit the books. Well, hit the books and maybe do a little gaming! The return of big series like Game of Thrones and Westworld isn't happening yet, so you have some good console time. Everyone needs stuff to talk about on Monday!
PS4 may have Shadow of the Tomb Raider, but Xbox One has some insane deals right now! Plus, you’re probably still working on Destiny 2: Forsaken. You’re going to need a break from that, of course, and Xbox One has a Microsoft Publisher Sale happening right now. There are also some great deals on Star Wars films and The Purge movies. If you’re feeling like a fight, there is also a deal on the Rocky films, with a caveat. So grab your controller and a bag of Cheetos. (We won’t tell anyone you ate them.)
