This week, Polygon launched the Red Dead issue because, well, Red Dead Redemption 2 has finally arrived. There’s a lot to read up on, and once you’re caught up, there are plenty of ways to save some money on the game.

Several retailers are discounting Xbox One S and Xbox One X consoles by $100 when you purchase Red Dead Redemption 2, essentially making the game free and saving you a handful of cash. Here are a few of the best bundles:

Nintendo’s Labo Robot Kit is discounted for the first time at Amazon. The kit costs $59.99 (usually $79.99,) though you’ll also want to check out the Variety Kit and Vehicle Kit if you’re looking to complete your Labo collection.

It’s almost Halloween, and if you’re not quite feeling the spirit, checking out some scary games is a quick, effective remedy. Fanatical’s “Scream Sale” is happening now, dropping prices on games like Vampyr, Strange Brigade, Alan Wake, and many more.

Less scary, but still worth your time is Humble’s latest themed sale: the ‘Very Positive’ sale. These games have earned top marks from players on Steam, and the sale includes discounts of up to 75 percent off on the likes of The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth, its Afterbirth DLC, Astroneer, House Flipper, Kentucky Route Zero, Thimbleweed Park, and more.

If you feel like your game library is missing something, but can’t quite put your finger on what, you should probably check out Sexy Brutale, the puzzle-heavy, murder-mystery game with an amazing name. It’s $10 at Green Man Gaming (usually $19.99.)

If you need to travel for the holidays, you owe it to yourself to grab this 26,800mAh power bank that can charge your Nintendo Switch, and other products, while you use them. We’ve worked with RAVPower to give Polygon readers 35 percent off.
