E3 Forum Betting Special 2018



  • It is that time everyone. E3 starts, right now.

    I haven't been here since the PSX betting post and I didn't see a post about E3 yet so here it is. We will all give our own responses to the bets in the Easy Allies E3 2018 Betting Special video. Post your bets here before the start of the EA conference, I'll throw them all into this Google doc and then tally up the forum winner after EZA post their Results Show. All the the bets are pretty straight forward and exactly what Brad and Ian did. We will still give our responses to the bet Benzilla nuked, we will have to answer BOTH of the bets for the one that Ian used Babality on, and we will ignore Don's bet for Don's Dirty Deal (whichever of us is the closest gets the point). Don't forget to make an outrageous final bet as well.

    Dreams:
    Will the Star Fox racing game have powerslides and hidden shortcuts?
    Will a character from the Star Wars prequel trilogy appear in Kingdom Hearts 3?
