      Tie-Break: 20

  • 1: Will there be any spoken or on-screen appearance of Master Chief's full name, "John-117" during the presentation? Partials such as "John" or "117" do not count.

    3: Will a new Fable be shown?
    4: Will the word "Batman" be spoken?

    6: Will the price be revealed?
    7: There will be a self deprecating joke about "showing real gameplay this time". It has to be an attempt at a joke and not an apologetic statement. I will consult joke experts if necessary.

Assassin's Creed Valhalla, Dirt 5, Yakuza: Like a Dragon, Madden NFL 21, Chorus, Scarlet Nexus, Bright Memory Infinite, Call of the Sea, Scorn, Second Extinction, The Ascent, The Medium, and Vampire: The Masquerade-Bloodlines 2.

  • Heart pounding...




  • 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.

  • I got 8/12

  • 10/12, nice! Only got Fable and The Initiative wrong. My Tie Breaker's stronger than @DemonPirate's, so hopefully I won something cool.

  • @sentinel-beach Winner gets the first month of Game Pass for $1
