--E3 2014 Predict-a-ton Challenge is open!--
 


Nintendo. Digital. Event.

Can such a generic sounding package contain megatons? And can you, dear reader, predict them?

This year's E3 presentation livestreams on June 10th at 9am PT, 12pm EST, 5pm BST. With only a few days to go, now's the time to unleash your Nintendo Nostradamus and enter the 2014 Predict-a-ton!

-=-=-=-=-=--=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-



How To Play:
======

Here are four sets of statements, grouped by megaton-osity. Pick whichever you think will come true. (choose as MANY as you like eg. A01, A03, A13, B02, B03, C5...)

But choose wisely! These predictions are increasingly valuable and increasingly risky. Correct picks win you points, incorrect picks lose you points. Can you score more than 0? Many have tried and failed. Last year's winner was infinitywave with a suspiciously record +24 points.


Please post your predictions by the end of June 9th.


No editing.


Any statements that are officially confirmed in advance of the presentation will be grayed out and you won't be able to pick them after that, so it might help to get your guesses in early.


For the purposes of this challenge, all information that surfaces during the course of E3 will be taken into account. That includes the Digital Event, Treehouse streaming, press meetings, showfloor revelations, interviews, online news, and any additional announcements before the doors close.

@DrFinkelstein I also think there's a good chance a Metroid game will be at least mentioned, but I'm just being careful!
Posted: 06/06/14, 20:47:53
Yay, lots of entries already!

I keep the challenge more focused now, just ten statements per group, but I try to make sure those options cover a lot of possibilities.

Going to be an interesting show. Nintendo is creatively very strong right now and has had a lot of experience with both their machines. This should be the time the best software shows up.

@Mop it up

What would you hope for in a Metroid game at E3? Prime? 2D Super Metroid style? Other M style? Something crazy like Metroid Racing?
Posted: 06/07/14, 04:04:58
@DrFinkelstein

Metroid prime 4.

With 40% more scanning.
Posted: 06/07/14, 04:26:47
@DrFinkelstein Well preferably it wouldn't try to mimic a past game, but I have no real preference. I think the Prime series has run its course, I wouldn't mind seeing a different type of 3D Metroid. A side-scroller on 3DS would probably be ideal, the DS didn't have a proper Metroid title so the handheld line is due for another good Metroid game like what we saw on GBA.
Posted: 06/07/14, 04:30:52
@Mop it up

I wasn't intending to put your answer in a box but having a simile-game could help frame direction. The GBA Metroid was good (at least the one I played, Zero Mission I think it was...whatever one was an Ambassador entry). I'd want another Prime game, but not with that story or whatever. Same kind of gameplay, seen in glorious HD and with atmosphere not yet seen on Nintendo's console. In tandem, I'd also love a 3DS side-scroller.

Sorry for the lack of editing in the above post. I thought I deleted more stuff. That's what I get for editing on my phone while on vacation.
