--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.

I had a premonition last night in my sleep that someone who looks like someone who works at Valve will make an appearance during one of the press conferences. Good luck proving that one wrong.

Shouldn't bonus picks not come with a penalty, hence why they're bonus?
Posted: 06/10/14, 04:33:06
@Brick

If there's no penalty, then there's no risk in making the prediction.

High risk, high reward. It's the name of the game,

....
It's going to be close this year..I can feel it. Although if someone goes all out on Metroid 4 they could either be the ultimate champion..or the player with the lowest 'negative' score.

BONUS; Star Fox returns!
Posted: 06/10/14, 17:12:20
@Shadowlink

lol then that's not technically a bonus

Whatever, I'm thinking it's time for Star Fox to finally return. We haven't had one since the GameCube on, Assault (not counting the 3DS remake of 64).
Posted: 06/10/14, 20:11:51
Boy, if Metroid sneaks in here somehow.. I had a pretty good base score! SHOULD'VE STUCK WITH STAR FOX. 3 years and nothin' though, kinda wears on ya..
Posted: 06/10/14, 21:26:01
Welp, whoever guessed Star Fox has won this thing.
