    The Alien bet is trying to bait me, but I need to answer without emotions...



  • Avengers Trailer? NO
    Obsidian doing Bioshock? NO
    Samus reveal herself? YES
    Alien: Isolation sequel? NO

    First character in MK XI: Raiden

    DC Superhero game? NO
    Ghost of Tsushima, Death Stranding, and Dreams? NO (I'm taking the AND into account. Death Stranding is the strongest possibility. Dreams might. Ghost of Tsushima? No way)
    Microsoft Studios announces a game? YES
    New TLoU Pt. II Trailer? NO

    Shadow Drops: 2

    New Smash character? YES (1st DLC post Piranha Plant)
    Bluepoint's game shown? NO

    Non Gears 5 Gears game? NO

    GOTY Winner: Coming down to Red Dead Redemption II and God of War, I'm going to do a stupid thing with betting, and that's ride off emotion: GO GOD OF WAR!!!

    EDIT: Final, FINAL BET: CTR Remastered announced.



  • This post is deleted!


  • A lot of us already got some points if one recent OFFICIAL tweet is to be trusted but I don't wanna spoil which one.

    We can maybe replace that bet before the weekend?



  • Yeah I would like to participate, but I feel like I would have an unfair advantage because of leaks.



  • In the news thread there are, well, news about that remastered CTR. Sooo, a leak? Confirmed one? @Brannox
    Edit. Aah, that was just some extra bonus bet of your own.



  • @sentinel-beach I think it's speculation and not confirmed, but I wanted to hop on it. And correct, because it's not part of the initial set, I tacked it on at the end. As such, it SHOULD NOT be counted on the off, OFF chance it happens. I'm not expecting it.



  • Everyone could change their bets because of leaks, naughty dog tweeting they won't be there could be a lie. I don't want to change the bets because it wouldn't give us any time to make the bets.
