"Not E3" 2022 Predict-a-ton!
 
To start things off, I must apologize for the lateness on this game’s release. With E3 officially dead, the whole cadence of the month has been a bit off. As of this post, Nintendo hasn’t even announced they’re doing anything at this time frame. However after watching some of the other presentations, I realized we should still give it a shot in case Nintendo surprises us with a Nintendo Direct on a very short notice. Thus, the ‘participation’ period for this year’s Predict-a-ton is from now until a Nintendo Direct starts, whether that’s this coming week or later. I sure hope they do one for Tuesday or Wednesday this week (which is my suspicion). I suppose there’s no harm in keeping the game alive until the next Direct, so long as I cancel out anything that ends up becoming determined ahead of time. So enough rambling, 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 instead!

Please post your predictions as soon as possible, as we simply don’t know when the next Nintendo Direct will be. It could be in 24 hours, 72 hours, or 4 weeks from now… but don’t wait!

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. With this very non-standard year, this period will mean a standard Nintendo Direct and/or any Treehouse/sub-(but general) Directs that get announced during a core presentation. For example, if Nintendo had a Nintendo Direct on Tuesday, a Treehouse Live on Wednesday, and then announced an Indie-one next week, we wouldn’t finish tallying things until that last direct was finished.

Oh sweet, I love these! Especially since I crushed it last year! Thanks for making another, but I'll have to submit my guesses a bit later when I have a minute.

A couple of options I didn't choose were very tempting, but settled on just the above. Thanks for doing this!

Thanks for doing this again, Fink! Hopefully, they actually have a Direct. Dropping that Fire Emblem demo out of nowhere seemed like a bad omen...

Yup that's all I'm predicting this year. While I would love to finally see Metroid Prime 4, I've been burned too many times at this point. Maybe next year.

My picks. And yes, I corrected the missing '2' in the B01 category. I think people understand what I'm going for though.

I can't believe BotW2 trailer is only worth 2 points, next one has to be a name and story trailer - I'd go home happy with that alone!

Thanks for coming through with the annual 'thon, Fink! It's still a good format. ^__^

Tempted to gamble 50P for Pikmin as a bonus title but I'm starting to think it's going to skip the Switch now. So I'll play it safe.

Rumor is the next Nintendo Direct is June 29th!

When is your voting here @GameDadGrant?

;)

Unless you did via the Google Forms page. I haven't checked those results in a bit.
Posted: 06/20/22, 05:08:51
I'm with @GameDadGrant, I'll be making an INFORMED prediction closer to the expected date!
Posted: 06/20/22, 16:38:51
DK and Earthbound (Grezzo remake) games both seem like gambles that are within the realms of possibility. Pikmin would be so welcome though, I'm baffled by Nintendo's clear enthusiasm for the franchise and then long, long periods of silence.

@Infinitywave

Have there been any rumblings of an Earthbound remake? I feel like people have been talking about another Donkey Kong for years now, but Earthbound seems totally out there.

I'm going to rub some salt in the wound and predict that there will not be a June Direct.
Posted: 06/24/22, 02:14:17
Rumors seem solid there will be but are now leaning more towards something smaller than we usually see in June...
Posted: 06/24/22, 20:09:42
I do want to post here, but I don't want to jump the gun until we actually get one confirmed. It bothers me that we haven't had one yet this late in June...
Posted: 06/24/22, 22:06:48
My thing is if there was a June Direct we wouldn't have had the Xenoblade one until afterwards so they could announce the Xenoblade Direct during the June direct.
Posted: 06/25/22, 00:22:03
@pokepal148

I don't think that really matters. They're clearly changing things up and they've done many game or topic-specific directs which weren't announced in core Nintendo Directs.

It's crazy though that we're a few days away from finding out if Alanah Pearce was actually right.

It's probably only fan rumblings. We know Grezzo are working on a mystery RPG. They already did such a cool job bringing a 2D classic into the 3D modern era while still having bags of charm and retaining the original gameplay, so people are speculating about Earthbound.
Posted: 06/25/22, 13:47:14
Multiple places/sources are now saying Mini Direct focused on Partners, like the infamous ones we had four of in 2020 instead of the good stuff.

welp
