Nintendo's E3 Predict-a-ton 2010 (win XP!)
 



Zero asked me to prepare a prediction quiz for the biggest show of the year, and I was happy to oblige.

The time is nearly upon us. Nintendo will be taking two hours on June 15th, 9am PST, to unveil their future offerings that are highly likely to include a lavish new Zelda game and a very fancy new portable system. But how well do you know your Nintendo stuff?

-=-=-=-=-=--=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-



To play!:
======

Choose as many statements as you like (eg. A01, A03, A09, A13, B02, B03, B04, C5... etc.)

They're split into four groups depending on how likely they are. You'll either win or lose those points depending on how the show plays out. Too many wrong guesses and you'll end up with a negative score!

As this is an official quiz this time around there will be XP to play for too. Every point of your final score will count as 1000XP. This might sound generous but the victor in the Fall Media Summit quiz was jacksrb with +10 points, so it's not as easy as it sounds. However, the top three predictors will also get a big XP boost, so there's plenty to play for.

Please post your predictions by the end of the 14th!

No editing.

If there are any solid leaks in advance of the show, those statements will be locked down so it might help to get your guesses in early.

I'll get my votes in later.

I just want to make it clear that although some of these may be open to interpretation, Y-Alpha is Judge Judy and executioner here so whatever he decides the "correct" responses are at the end, those are the correct responses. This is all for FUN, so let's not cause any drama if he judges things in a way we don't like, MMM-K?
Posted: 06/08/10, 00:33:38
A) 1, 2, 3, 4, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12

B) 3, 6, 9, 10, 11, 12(Hopefully!), 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 21, 24, 26

C) 1, 5, 6, 10, 12, 13, 15, 18, 20

D) 6

Fun idea Y-Alpha! I'm probably being too hopeful here, we should see some surprises outside of Zelda Wii and the 3DS. Project Sora and Retro's next game seem like pretty easy contenders.

Yep. Y-Alpha answered this question on the last page.

Also, I forgot to say so in my sign-up post: thanks for doing this! I had fun with the last one, so I appreciate you doing this again for E3.

Right you are. I was say my chances are lessened since this one is for actual XP [I like the reward system y'all came up with, BTW].

But I feel a little better seeing all the people that think everything will happen...bwa ha ha...
Posted: 06/08/10, 16:52:00
I'm wavering between going with what I think will win me the most XP (yes, I'm coming for you Secret_Tunnel!) or going with what I want to happen and hoping by some magical voodoo powers me picking stuff on an Internet thread actually affects what happens in the real world.

Here goes!

A- 01, 02, 04, 05, 07, 08, 09, 12, 13

B- 02, 05, 06, 07, 09, 10, 12, 21

C- 01 (I believe, damnit!), 03, 06, 10, 15, 18, 19, 21

D- NONE.

Yeah, I probably overpicked yet again, but whatever. I BELIEVE.

Fuck, I didn't see the bonus question, so I'm breaking the rules and editing.

I CAN DO THAT I OWN THE SITE SHUT UP I CAN DOWHATVER I WANT.

My pick: Advance Wars 3DS.
