As the year winds down, we take time to reflect on the games that we played the past year and the games that we'll be playing into the new year. Here are our picks for this week's Weekend Video Game Warrior article, what are yours?

I'll be spending my weekend playing some Disgaea 5. I haven't played a Disgaea game before, and this one looks really fun! The level cap is 9999! That's insane, this should keep me busy for the next, oh I don't know, fifteen years!

This weekend, I'll be continuing my two Christmas games (Monster Boy & Puyo Puyo Tetris), but I've also just picked up Cat Quest on the eShop for like $5. Had my eye on that one for a long time, so it looks to be a fun weekend for me!

This weekend, I will be playikng a lot more Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. I want to find that Golden Mushroom spirit! This game has me so hooked, and although I am nowhere near a great player, I still can't get enough of the online. Wario was always my main, but I'm really liking the Mii Swordfighter. I will also play some Red Dead Online, and mess around with the NPCs of Blackwater. Finally, I will play Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu, as this was a Christmas present that I've been waiting to open for weeks now!

This weekend I'm going to finally finish off Assassin Creed Odyssey's story and make the transition into the post-game. I'm 50 hours in and still having an absolute blast! I'm excited to see what other fun and wacky journeys await me while I continue working toward its platinum trophy.

This weekend, I'll be swinging through more of Spider-Man. This game had grabbed my attention quickly. I'm a sucker for open world games. I'll also be unwinding after work with my never-ending playing of MLB the show. And for good fortune, I'll be still shooting at the challenges and legendaries in Red Dead. I do still hope to squeeze a match or three of Overwatch at some point.

This weekend I'm still in the process of befriending a giant "doggo birb floof" in The Last Guardian and still enjoying countless hours of fun in Oregon Trail online... I mean, Red Dead Redemption online. Watching this little relationship unfold with the beast Trico is really cute, and getting into all sorts of trouble on RDR2 online is always a good time!
