Geek Binge’s E3 2015 Predictions Challenge

By  | 

Welcome to our second annual Predictions Challenge!

E3 2015 is right around the corner, and we wanted to predict dumb shit and win something because we’re competitive and bored. The gaming staff has come together to share their out on a limb, left field shots based on nothing but blind luck and no skill. These E3 predictions are scaled, and based on the Taco Bell Border Sauce packets. A mild prediction nets you only one measly point, a hot prediction scores two, and a scorching on-fire prediction gets three.

We aren’t clairvoyant here at Geek Binge, but we do love E3 and one of us will win. Last year it was our boss and Editor-in-Chief Matt, and this year the pressure is on him. This post will be updated with the winner, with all the predictions and scores tallied (if someone remembers to do them).

The scoring system we use to weigh the predictions.

Click here to listen to these predictions in podcast form! Our gaming show, Screen Bytes, is worth subscribing to, as well, while you’re at it. I mean you got this far, right?

  • Best tips for studying:(1) Outline with an emphasis on brevity (one page max for each class);(2) If you’re out of time for outlining, Cruchtime is a great product;(3) Create a schedule and STICK TO IT;(4) Focus your studies on actual test questions published by your professor; and(5) Use LIAF to help cement the basic issues.I’ve found that group study is a great addition — IF you’ve already mastered the basic components. Group study before that point can actually detract from your overall success, as it’s easier to procrastinate. Good luck!!
