E3 2018 Predict-a-ton!
 
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! E3! Nintendo has been quite free to share big news throughout the year ever since Iwata started the Nintendo Directs, but E3 still packs a major news punch! Last year I hosted the Negative World E3 Predict-a-ton and with alignment from InfinityWave, I’m doing so again this year! Let’s do this!

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 instead!

Please post your predictions by the end of June 11th. 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.

This one's obvious but NO editing. Your initial vote is your final 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.

Wave Race

I guess I'm kind of off the amiibo train... They've been harder to find at traditional stores like Target, Walmart, and Best Buy lately, not to mention TRU going out of business. At least I hope they don't do a whole new series of them. Getting all of those was a nightmare...

I must say, I really wish Wave Race would be real, but I can't use it as a Bonus. I just don't have the faith. I also wonder how close I am to locking down the B02 regarding Fortnite. I guess someone said there's a Fortnite icon on the Switch servers... if that's true... and I don't know a legit source about it, then it's clearly true. Still, until Nintendo announces it or it is otherwise public knowledge and not a rumor, it's stuck in the open category.

@DrFinkelstein

Fortnite seems like a lock. Someone on Reddit said that an update file for it was uploaded to the eShop just now...expecting it to be announced during the Direct.
Posted: 06/06/18, 06:41:38
If it was just on reddit and not officially, I guess it needs to stay in the listing but anyone who hasn't yet voted might be wise to do so with it.

@DrFinkelstein

If Fire Emblem is gone, I guess I just won't make a bonus prediction, so ignore that on mine.
Posted: 06/07/18, 02:10:03
@V_s

Sorry for the hassle and switch. I wouldn't be able to count the game already announced despite my ignorance. The likelihood of more games in the series heavily favors it to be a detriment to the game and not on equal footing for what the question is meant to do. I'll remove your vote as planned and not replace it.

The Metroid Prime 4 one though, does it have to be specifically gameplay? I'm sure we'll see it in some form, not sure about a gameplay trailer, but certainly at least a cinematic trailer of some kind to show off what the game will be about.
Posted: 06/08/18, 20:07:56
@Brick

If we can reasonably discern the actual gameplay (as in, more than a split second or less of actual in-game playable footage) then it'll probably count. I'm looking for proof of how that game will be enjoyed beyond cinematic and teasers.

@Abdooooo

Looks like you've voted in both. There are many differences between them. I'm curious as to why you did so. Which one do you want as your actual voting set? I gotta stick with one, even though I have the two avenues for voting.

@DrFinkelstein
Oh, so the MP4 gameplay has to be some sort of visual representation? Gameplay details divulged in text or verbally doesn't count?
Posted: 06/09/18, 15:33:20
@r_hjort

I'd count it as long as it was specific. If Bill Trinen says, Metroid Prime will have shooting and exploring like the originals, that's not quite enough. But anything meaty would be fine in video, or text. I'd almost not want to count still images unless it was clear about anything unique/specific about it.
