First of all, thank you to InfinityWave for having developed and refined the very game I’m presenting to you today. I don't believe we did one of these last E3 and I don't know that IW was planning to do another… with only a week till E3… I put one together myself (with some Ploot assist). So, let’s-a-go!
How To Play: ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-
Here are four sets of statements. Pick all of them you think will come TRUE. (choose as many as you like eg. A3, A6, B5, C9, D10…)
Make your choices in a prudent manner! Each category is more valuable but also becomes increasingly risky. A correct pick means you WIN those points. An incorrect pick means you LOSE those points. This means you might even end up with a negative score, but you may just succeed with the highest total on the forums!
Please post your predictions by the end of June 12th. It proves to vote early though as any statements that are confirmed ahead of the presentation will be locked and no-longer viable for new pickers. With tomorrow's Pokemon Direct… that might affect this game!
This one's obvious but NO editing. Your initial vote is your only vote, so make it count!
For the purposes of this challenge, ALL information that comes out during the course of the show will be taken into account. That includes the Digital Event, Treehouse streaming, press meetings, online news... everything that happens before the doors close at the end of Day 3.
Hmm... I seem more conservative than in past years but I think in general I have a sense we will more likely be getting more details of existing games for this year and early next rather than a bunch of game announcements for mid to late 2018.
A: 02) More details on Nintendo Switch’s Online Service 03) Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Trailer 04) New amiibo revealed 05) Details on the upcoming Zelda: Breath of the Wild DLC. 06) New Nindies Announced (at least two) 09) At least 2 new Switch retail games from Nintendo 10) At least 2 new 3DS retail games from Nintendo
C: 05) Something new from Retro Studios (finally!)
I'm 100% positive there will be no "real" Metroid game. if Metroid/Samus is mentioned at all it will be as a side-note or in some kind of spin-off/mini-game. Or mayyyybbbeeee a port or VC title.
i think Retro's game will be Donkey Kong or another mascot platfomer.
A) Expected : 2pts 01) Super Mario Odyssey dated for November 02) More details on Nintendo Switch’s Online Service 03) Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Trailer 04) New amiibo revealed 05) Details on the upcoming Zelda: Breath of the Wild DLC. 06) New Nindies Announced (at least two) 08) Upcoming ARMS post-release content shown 09) At least 2 new Switch retail games from Nintendo 10) At least 2 new 3DS retail games from Nintendo
B) Rumored : 4pts 01) Mario + Rabbids to have Unique amiibo 03) Remake/Sequel to Motion-Controls-prominent Wii title 08) Special Edition Consoles for Monster Hunter XX Coming to Switch or 3DS in North America 09) Assassins Creed Coming to Switch 10) FF7 Remake Coming to Switch
C) High risk: 6 pts 05) Something new from Retro Studios (finally!) 06) Kid-Icarus / Paper Mario / Pikmin 4 Switch Titles Shown
D) MEGATON : 10 pts 01) New ‘True’ Metroid Revealed 08) ‘Mother 3’ Officially Announced
I tend to do fairly badly on these, but I went for less high value ones this time. Hopefully it pays off.
No worries. My intent is to have people not edit solely so there isn't any editing post news. Now that the Rabbids amiibo (or lack there of) information is out there, I wouldn't want people changing answers. They I've handled it is that I've been logging answers in my spreadsheet as they were seen so if someone edits before I see it, oh well, if they edit after, too bad. If they edit before I see, but vote for something already known, it's disqualified. But if their timestamp is before the knowledge was known (i.e. today's Rabbids reveal) then I can leave it.
Anyway, that was a whole lot of words for nothing really important.
We have 21 participants from Negative World and 6 from NinTemple. However due to some overlap we have 24 total users participating this year! Can we round this out to 25? Anyone? Anyone?
