    Shawn Layden will enter the stage with a Sly Cooper t-shirt on. They will reveal more details about the Sly Cooper movie-turned-TV show, along with a new Sly Collection with games 1-4. I'll be excited briefly, until we see gameplay footage that shows that they've changed the art style to that weird more "realistic" one from the show/movie trailer. I'll buy it anyways.



  • @Kneefoil Just to be clear, for these forum bets the Brim to Brim Bomb Bets are just normal bets for us. That is, you want to answer what you think will happen to get the point.

    I also have no clue who LanDi is.



  • @Tragosaurus the "bad guy" in Shenmue



  • I'm seeing some weaker Final Bets here, meaning they could actually happen. Or maybe I (and a few others) just took things to the extreme too much.



  • @Sentinel-Beach Like who

    @Faaip @DisturbedSwan Please spice up your bets



  • So many low MvC Infinite Bets...



  • Is this the final time Spider man can be shown, because isn't it suppose to come out before E3 of next year?



  • @The_Andredal It just says 2018 so I'm guessing no.



  • oh ok, i thought it was spring 2018. Well that means this is the last big showing of God of War then. Since that said spring

    Oh right, I just copy/pasted my bets from another place where I made them. So for those brim-to-brims I typed the opposites of what I personally expected while watching still the video.
