VC Guessing Game - 2012 Finale

#1WarioFan63Posted 12/20/2012 1:21:02 PM
New this week:
Wario Land II for GBC on 3DS

Coming Soon to 3DS:
December 27: Mega Man (NES)
December 27: Super Mario Bros. The Lost Levels (NES)

Newcomers, I'm sure most VC followers are aware that NoA doesnt typically reveal VC games in advance and we're usually left in the dark about the release schedule. The idea is that we have a guessing game to see who can predict what'll come out every week. We try to have some fun out of not knowing!

Here are the rules.
-You can vote for a maximum of three different games. The less you vote for, the more points you get.
-You can vote for both the 3DS and Wii VC.
-If you don't think anything is coming for either service, you can vote for "No Games".
-If a game has already confirmed prior to Thursday's PR, you cannot vote for that game anymore. In this event you can vote for "No Other Games".
-No Games/No Other Games must be your only vote for that week. You can't say "No Games!" and then vote for one or two games.
-No Games/No Other Games votes also cover both services. You can't say "No Games on Wii" and then vote for games on 3DS. You either vote for games or no games at all.
-This is for the North America region only. If you vote for a game and it comes out in Europe but not America, it won't count.
-This is only for the 3DS and Wii VC. WiiWare, DSiWare, or other eshop votes will not be accepted. If you vote for a classic game and the next week a 3D remake of it shows up, it won't count.
-This is not a topic for venting your frustrations. Please don't post if you're gonna say "something nobody likes". Thank you.

Scoring:
-If you vote for 3 games, you will be awarded 1 point per correct guess.
-If you vote for 2 games, you will be awarded 2 points per correct guess.
-If you vote for 1 game, you will be awarded 5 points if it's correct.
-If you vote for No Games/No Other Games, you will be awarded 1 point if it's correct.

Leaderboard Key:
Bold indicates the top contestant(s)
Italics indicate anyone who scored the previous week.

The host's guesses will be in this post as part of the Current Results chart. Current Results show what's being guessed that week and how often. They may get reposted near the end of the guessing week to see where everything stands.

And for the final shot in the dark for the year...

Shantae (GBC)

Also; Is it just me, or is NoA ludicrously incompetent when it comes to releasing VC titles? :T

Making yourself "The official _____ of the ___ board" isn't giving you any bonus points, bub. Stop kidding yourself.

I used to think they were just really incompetent, but then I learned about how annoying it is to get a company to agree to release their game on VC, with licensing and everything. Which, since they never know what they can get right away, makes sense why they haven't release all their first party stuff.

Although, they are still a little slow about it.

I talked with WarioFan about it but does anybody want this game to continue?

Its just not as fun as it used to be.

Yeah sorry, I meant to pop in here the other day and talk about it but I was wondering how many people think this should go on.

It was exciting back on the Wii board when stncldrwg hosted it and there were so many games coming out and there was a lot more mystery to the release dates.

As much as I love predicting the VC schedule, it's not so much like it was in the old times anymore. I didn't really decide on it before this week so I wasn't sure if I was ready to call this one a sendoff yet. If there's some amazingly overwhelming demand for this to go on I'll regroup and keep going.

At the very least I wanna get the final results posted.

Shock Troopers 2 on the NeoGeo came out a few days ago on the Wii along with NES games SMB Lost Levels and Mega Man 1 for 3DS.

Congrats to Lhunthangion for being 2012's top dog!
