E3 2017 Predict-a-ton! RESULTS!
This year was quite a positive one for the ol' Nintendo. Gaming fans young and old… Nintendo or otherwise… found things to love. At the center of all that was the main man himself… Super Mario! Surprisingly though, it's releasing earlier than expected! We also received news on where Metroid has been at, so those folks won big! Yet… we still don't know what's going on with Retro… a mystery remains. We hope they're okay! The 3DS didn't have too much to show for itself though Metroid: Samus Returns certainly was a big deal. That Rabbids/Mario cross-over was some legit noise! This was E3 2017.

This year's results were just such a surprise. The event was light on new Nindies and those Rabbids figurines are not amiibo. Beyond Good and Evil II got it's great unveiling but was never confirmed for Switch. A new Switch Pokemon game was confirmed but it's not Pokemon Stars (as we know) and it's not for 2017. A lot of these were half right in some respects, but half right doesn't earn points! I hope you all had a really great week last week and I hope this has been a fun game for you. Again I want to thank InfinityWave for his inspiration and for Ploot for the assist in creating the thing.

Have a great summer! Until next E3… see ya!

Man, we stink! Wii Stink! Honestly, looking at the winners, I can't help but feel that the results were rigged...

Haha, where'd you get that picture from?
Posted: 06/19/17, 05:04:08

lol, it is a bit curious… but they legit won man! I think this was Paul's first go at this too.

The picture was being shared by GoNintendo's Twitter account. I'm presuming it's the chap's pic who is named on the photo.

Posted: 06/19/17, 06:01:05
I didn't get negative! Yes!!!!! Look at that green 0, F Yeah!!!!
Posted: 06/19/17, 08:09:07
Well done to the top places!

But also well done to the bottom of the pack too. I hope you never lose that wide-eyed, yet utterly blind, optimism.

Hmm, my formula put me around the middle. Which is still not good, but better than I usually do.

Will have to work on the formula.

I didn't believe enough - Metroid killed me. And Retro MIA again. Stupid half right guesses ;). Good E3. Good game. And the winners are ok people I guess - good luck next year peeps 😊

Damn, should've had the guts to predict Metroid!

To not place. At least I finally had a positive score this year.
Posted: 06/20/17, 03:20:30
I like how just turning in a blank vote would put you in the top 1/3.
Posted: 06/20/17, 19:04:42
It was a pretty straight-forward E3, I probably should have scaled things back.

I know why they're not being counted based on the wording of the predictions, but I'm still considering a few more of my guesses to be correct as I envisioned them. Moral victories!
Posted: 06/20/17, 20:05:10
Maybe next year you can taste that sweet sweet green, let me tell you, it feels amazing.
Posted: 06/21/17, 04:14:16
Hey, I did alright again! Betting on Metroid definitely was the way to go.
Posted: 06/21/17, 06:36:58

Fink, can we change the zero results in the OP to a more neutral colour, say blue or black?

DH is labouring under the misapprehension that this is a positive result because of the green. He's getting a big head

What do I get for calling Prime 4, Samus Returns, AND the Screw Attack symbol like a year ago?


So this was when Federation Force came out:

Predictions galore people. Take notes.

Nothing. Because you didn't call it. You just posted a bunch of nonsense text messages.

EDIT: Now I contemplate further, if Carlos gets nothing, and DH gets nothing, doesn't that make them equal? That seems wrong. DH really should be ranked above Carlos' insanity.

Given the circumstances I suppose he can keep his green zero.

Not in the negatives! That's always cause for celebration, much less the fact that I tied for 6th place. I'll take it!

Thanks again for doing this, @DrFinkelstein!
