The Game Awards 2018 Forum Betting Special



  • 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.

    I feel like all of my bets are super negative, so let me clarify: I think this will be a really cool show with a lot of cool announcements, I just don't see most of these specific things happening. I would really like to be wrong, though!



  • @capnbobamous that's why I gave the 2 point incentive for yes because this is supposed to be us going wild and having fun.



  • @iboshow Fair enough. I did get a little hopeful with a few of them, like Bluepoint and DC, which to be honest I would be kind of surprised if they came true.
