    EDIT:

    DAMN!



  • I slept in. I will be watching now and catching up.



  • 1: N

    2: Y

    3: Y

    4: N

    5: Y (I'm counting Jack Black. He spoke the last words before the start of the Psychonauts 2 gameplay, and they were "And now it's time to rock. Shall we start rockin?" which was the "presentation" of that game.) If there are any serious challenges to this ruling, I will send it up to the council.

    SIDE BET ACTION @Sazime : It was NOT Michael Ironside.

    6: N

    7: N (I didn't hear anything, but stream was a little chaotic. If I missed it, let me know)

    8: N

    9: N

    10: N

    11: Y (Gears was in a montage)

    12: N

    Tie Breaker: I counted 12. Might go through again just to make sure, but for now that's the official number.



  • Looks like I'm 8/12



  • I missed questions 4, 5 and 12 so 9/12 correct for me.



  • 6/12

    These were some bad bets not bad beats. No way in hell were they gonna say "John 117" lmao.



  • @dipset they didn't have to say it

    Feel free to do the next bets so I don't have to.



  • 10/12!
    I'm satisfied with that :)

    I underestimated their excessive Gamepass marketing though lol



  • @tokyoslim

    That's a saying in gambling "It wasn't a bad bet, it was a bad beat". I didn't mean your bets were bad, I meant that MINE were.



  • @dipset Ah sorry. Thanks for clarifying.



  • I only got 6/12, lol. I'm definitely not in tune with these Xbox thingies.
