  • The Avengers game needs to explicitly be called Avengers somewhere in the title or there is dialogue calling them the Avengers. I'm playing that card.



  • So DMC5 demo news has leaked, but it comes out tomorrow. Does that count as a shadow drop I wonder?



  • I mean technically speaking the show will end just around midnight depending on where you are.



  • @brannox So it appears I only missed on Samus, Microsoft Studios, and was too small in the shadow drops (And again, I was joking about CTR, so I'm not counting it either way).



  • This is the results in my opinion, what does everyone think?

  • @iboshow Samus was seen in Smash commercial(which many probably bet on) so I would say YES on that



  • I bet on Samus reveal for either MP4 of Trilogy Switch release, but I wouldn't mind getting the points on a technicality.



  • @iboshow I think you have to give it to either Raiden or Scorpion. They both enter the frame at the exact same time. The Kunai through the award graphic is not part of the trailer, and neither a Kunai nor a bolt of lightning is a character. As much as we associate them with the characters, it would not have counted if we'd seen different characters in the trailer.

    But anyway, I think that's 12 points for me! Not bad :)



  • @hazz3r I went frame by frame and Scorpion appeared in the frame first


  • Global Moderator

    I enjoyed the show a lot this year, also Im quite happy with 14 points (if I counted correctly). Could prolly have picked a couple more if I just thought one step further. oh well :)



  • If everyone is okay with my answers I'll update the spreadsheet later today and announce the winners



  • Looks like we have a 3 way tie with @Alex840 @Brannox & @Tearju-Engi . Congratulations. What did everyone think of my betting special.
