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.

Fingers crossed I'm not in the negatives this year! Going pretty conservative except for that Wario pick.

Oh, and a question about C6: Do all three of those titles have to be announced to get points, or just one? Because I think Pikmin 4 is more likely than the other two, so I wouldn't choose this if it has to be all three.

@Mop it up

For those who want to pick it, Any of the three will get points for that one. Landing all three will not net you any more points either. Do you want to officially add that to your selection? I can retain that info when I calculate the scores, for better or worse, or we can leave you as you are. I'd prefer people not edit their posts, like the OP stated. Since there was uncertainty, I can count it later for you if you'd like.

Thanks to Fink and Ploot for making the game this year! I'd somehow been doing it for fifteen years (since the final Spaceworld in 2001), so it is nice to just be a player for a change.

I'm trying to be conservative with my guesses...but maybe it will backfire and Nintendo will surprise us with tons of new info. (...ha!)
Posted: 06/06/17, 20:57:39
So do those of us that originally guessed B04 get points?
Posted: 06/06/17, 21:42:06
@ludist210

Yep, per my understanding of the previous rules we've done, and how I am choosing to play this here, those who voted that before the news broke get those points. Those who vote after simply can't pick it.

When they announced this direct I knew it was going to be a potential issue for the game. But alas, it's a 4+ point item and it is still anyone's game!
Posted: 06/07/17, 00:10:21
@DrFinkelstein Yeah, I was going to choose it for Pikmin 4, but I didn't want it to be in there in case it had to be all three since I know I can't edit it. I won't touch the post, but if you could somehow count a guess for Pikmin 4, I'd appreciate it.
Posted: 06/07/17, 01:56:36
Does the '2 new 3DS retail games' prediction get locked out after yesterday too? Or are we counting the Pokémon titles as one game?
Posted: 06/07/17, 02:15:41
I think I already have negative points. Story of my life.
