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.

None

Am I too late for this? Anyways, I don't expect many surprises today. I feel like they will talk a lot about the three big 2017 games (FE Warriors, Mario Odyssey and Xenoblade 2) and not much else. My gut is telling me Retro's Switch game will be revealed and the only 2018 game they talk about and it is likely Metroid, with an outside chance of Donkey Kong or new IP. We won't be getting any Smash/Mario Maker news at this event.

Happy E3 everybody!

Metroid Prime 4. Time to start eating healthier and exercising more. I have to live at least a little longer. Lol.

Is it too late to change my entry?

@anon_mastermind

Looking at your timestamp, I can allow it. You posted before the big news push but I can't allow B04. That was confirmed last week.

Funny yet true!

@DrFinkelstein

Do I get double bonus points for doubling down on Metroid?
Posted: 06/14/17, 00:56:34
Are the Nintemple Posts being included with our game here, or only if they cross-post? What about JKR?

@Shadowlink

I'm tracking both worlds together and separately. When I share the results I'll share the top person for NW but also let you know how Nintemple did; and vice versa. Right now, based on knowledge I have, a Nintempler is in the lead and Negative World has a five-way tie. But, only 11 of 55 possible entries are known and official right now. Official meaning either known negative points and known positive points. I don't have everything presumed negative, though maybe I should. Then I could see who would win if nothing else gets announced… hmm…

Funny enough, I am the only player of all 27 participants who has 0 points. lol. So I've had as many negatives as positives. I didn't vote on Metroid so you better believe I'll be going down.

@legendofalex

You get points for D01 and S10. So 60 points!

@DrFinkelstein

Just so you know, the new core Pokémon game on Switch is CLEARLY Pokémon Stars
Posted: 06/14/17, 01:35:07
@Shadowlink

Eh, I don't think we can call that. Perhaps that category could be better written to be more vague but with all that Pokemon Stars talk, I don't think it counts. Plus it says 2017, which we know for sure this Switch Pokemon game will not be for.
Unfortunately, it's out!

@DrFinkelstein

Bah. You and your "rules".

Next thing you'll tell me is Prime 4 doesn't count as Retro's new game.

THEY'RE CLEARLY PULLING THE STRINGS. WAKE UP SHEEPLE.
Posted: 06/14/17, 05:16:07
I totally forgot about this. Oh well.

Agreed. Also it's a conspiracy set up by the Alt-Retro, which is a team of extremists who want to keep the man down (or maybe lift the man up? One or the other).

Looks like B08 is so unlikely I should consider it a -1 value. Capcom sent a message out today that they have no plans to bring the game to the West for Switch, let alone the special console editions.
Posted: 06/15/17, 00:34:19
It looks like Pikmin 4 was mentioned, but not shown, so I'm guessing it doesn't count?
Posted: 06/15/17, 00:40:25
@Mop it up

Where's the mention? But yeah, the wording is that it should be shown. Bah! What idiot wrote that one!?
