E3 2017 Predict-a-ton!
 
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.

@Mop it up

I'll do that for you. It was unclear. My fault.

Shadowlink said:
Does the '2 new 3DS retail games' prediction get locked out after yesterday too? Or are we counting the Pokémon titles as one game?

I'm counting that as one game. So we need to see one more 3DS game new before I'll count points for it.

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.

Starting out I thought I was going to be playing a little carelessly with my picks, but I think I ended up playing more conservatively than usual...

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.

I tend to do fairly badly on these, but I went for less high value ones this time. Hopefully it pays off.

@Zero

No editing! What did you do an hour after you posted? What formula did you use?

@jacksrb

Thanks for submitting jacksrb! Unfortunately Your B04 was already revealed after the game started but a few days ago so it is disqualified now for further use.
Posted: 06/13/17, 00:31:33
@DrFinkelstein

Alright, that's it.

Posted: 06/13/17, 00:44:42
In other important news… it seems that B01 is damn near verified as FALSE! There are amiibo-like figures but they aren't amiibo? It has amiibo functionality but it isn't new Rabbids amiibo.

Also, C04 is going to be interesting. The trailer was released for BG&E2 but is it for Switch? Were platforms confirmed yet?
Posted: 06/13/17, 00:46:07
@DrFinkelstein I thought you could edit up until the end?! I don't read instructions!

I forget what I did. I think I removed more stuff because I looked at it and thought no way is all of this coming.

The formula was basically remove things based on a pattern instead of trying to think about it.
Posted: 06/13/17, 03:59:29
@Zero

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?
