Updated February 26, 2019: Even though Red Dead Redemption 2 is "Temporarily out of stock" at the moment, you can still secure the $35 price by purchasing it. Amazon will ship it when it gets more copies.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is a cinematic action-adventure game set in the Wild West. The title takes place in 1899, a time which brought stability to the United States, but also resulted in a drastic shift for many individuals who lived close to the untamed frontier.
Beforehand, the federal government chose not to heavily intervene in these territories, going all the way to California. However, the need for consolidation and some form of control — especially when states like Montana and Utah were admitted into the Union — triggered an end to the uncontrolled lawlessness that prevailed during those times. What many people considered "true freedom" was coming to an end.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is currently on sale at Amazon for $35. It's unclear how long this promotion will last because it usually retails for $60. If you haven't played Red Dead Redemption 2 yet, then this is the chance to jump in. You don't need to buy the Deluxe Edition or Ultimate Edition if you don't want certain cosmetic items in the multiplayer experience.
In our review, we said, "Despite some minor issues like stuttering in interiors, awkward camera angles in smaller houses, or the relatively slow start to the open-world story campaign — Red Dead Redemption 2 simply overrides its small perceptible flaws with what is nothing short of a truly spectacular experience. Simply put, it is one of the best games ever made, setting a new standard for open-world titles going forward."

Review: NASCAR Heat 5 is still the complete package for fans
It's not long since NASCAR Heat 4 arrived, or at least, that's how it seems, with the new title arriving much earlier in the year than its predecessor. It's got some shiny new paint jobs and some neat new features, but many would be hard pressed to tell it apart from last year's game.
