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.

Everything is tallied. I just need to write it all up.

We spoke a lot about it on the third podcast this week but I had to tweak one of them after seeing some news from the other day. Mario Tennis' new characters will count for A07.

@DrFinkelstein

I feel all smug and snarky that I got to be part of that podcast so I know the results.



Spoiler: I didn't win as usual.

I'm pretty sure I have positive points for the first time ever.

@DrFinkelstein Wasn't this revealed months ago? Or maybe I'm confusing it with leaks and datamines, this stuff tends to blend together for me...

@Mop it up

I wasn't aware it was... it's tough to tell indeed. Ultimately it won't matter much since there is nobody within two points of the lead score(s). To my knowledge, characters coming later via DLC wasn't a confirmed thing.
Posted: 06/16/18, 22:09:15
Yeah, I think you're right. Lousy leaks, ruining everything. This is what happens when Mario is no longer a plumber!

@Mop it up

I don't know why people like to leak. If it's for the e'fame', I never know, nor care, about who they are. They're just telling us what's in our Christmas gifts before we unwrap.
