Weekend Warrior – Simply Smashing
As we dive into this weekend, most of the Game Informer editors are looking forward to using their favorite gaming characters to beat up other ones because Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is out today! When we aren’t feverishly fighting our way through that game, a ton of us will be trying to finish Red Dead Redemption II. Those who have finished the game promise it's not a long ride for a short drink of water, though.
If you are doing anything fun this weekend, let us know in the comments below!
Leo Vader (@leovader) – I'll be playing more Red Dead Online! Hopefully all the free money they gave out will be enough to get a long scope rifle for hunting. I'll also be playing more Just Cause 4 and trying out that new Hitman 2 escalation. Best time to be a gamer!!!!
Brian Shea (@BrianPShea) – I’ve beaten the main story of Red Dead Redemption II and now it’s time to make my way through the epilogue. Of course, my progress will be slowed significantly by the launch of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, which I’m absolutely loving already.
Imran Khan (@imranzomg) – It’s pretty much the end of the year! Right now, I am just in cleanup mode both figuratively and literally. The rest of the time will be taken up by unlocking Smash characters, which, at this pace, I should be finished doing so by the end of December 2019.
Jill Grodt (@Finruin) – It will be a bitter-sweet weekend, but I’m going to try to cram in as much gaming as I can in between packing up and doing some last-minute sightseeing. Really looking forward to trying out the new Super Smash Bros. (especially after Joker was announced as a DLC character at The Game Awards last night). Besides that, I want to check out Throne Breaker and spend some time not progressing in Red Dead Redemption II’s story.
Suriel Vasquez (@SurielVazquez) – Kirby and I are headed to the Black Armory to play some Keeper Draft with Dutch.
Kyle Hilliard (@KyleMHilliard) – I’m STILL playing Red Dead Redemption II. It’s only getting better as I go, but man… I have been playing that a long time. I also legally have to play Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Otherwise I have some steak dinner plans, some children’s birthday party plans, and cleaning the house plans. It’s going to be a killer weekend.
Elise Favis (@elisefavis) – I’m nearly done with Red Dead II, so I hope that I can wrap it up this weekend. Though I’ve been a bit distracted with Hitman 2 because it’s so, so good. I’m having fun smacking people with a fish and killing them in ludicrous ways. I never thought I’d commit murder while wearing a flamingo costume, but here I am.
Javy Gwaltney – JAVY SMASH
Ben Hanson (@yozetty) – This weekend is, you’ll never guess, all about Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. I’m excited to hopefully unlock a lot of characters tonight and then tomorrow I’ll be playing with friends and having the best time ever under the sun. Have a good weekend!
Jeff Cork – I’ve been playing a ton of Smash this past week, so I haven’t been able to make any more progress on Red Dead 2 or my weekly Overwatch challenges. That changes NOW! And then I’ll get back to Smash. Who am I kidding?
