SMYN E3 2015 Yes/No Contest

Gamers! Fans of Show Me Your News! E3 2015 is less than a month away! It’s that time of year again, so we are holding an E3-themed contest that has a very simple premise!

THE CONCEPT

– You will be presented with 50 questions regarding what may or may not occur before or at this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo. These are questions that will be definitively answered “YES” or “NO” by the time the expo comes to a close.
– All you have to do is answer each question with “YES” or “NO,” as well as answer the tiebreaker question with a number.
– The podcast hosts will reveal their answers on SMYN’s annual live call-in show, a la talk radio. This will likely take place on June 6th, with more details to follow soon.
– The fan with the highest percentage of answers correct, as determined by the hosts at the end of E3, will be asked to be a guest on the post-E3 episode of Show Me Your News.

THE RULES

– You must submit your answers VIA EMAIL to smynshow(AT)gmail(DOT)com for them to be valid. This is new this year! Please let us know in your submission who you are, or how you want to be referred to.
– In order to be a guest on SMYN, you will need a working computer microphone and have no qualms (parental, etc.) with having a Skype call with us. This does not mean you cannot enter the contest, but if you win and are not able to be a guest for either of these reasons, we will have to consider the fan with the next highest score.
– Submissions must be entered a few hours before we go live for our pre-E3 call-in episode of SMYN. This will occur likely around Saturday, June 6th. Therefore, the sooner you submit your answers, the better chance you have of the deadline not passing you by. However, once you submit your entry, those are the answers we will stick with for your official submissions. Any resubmissions that you make will be disregarded, as it would become complicated for maintaining our records. Therefore, before submitting via email, feel free to DISCUSS THESE QUESTIONS WITH OTHER FANS in this thread HERE.

So with that, let’s reveal the questions involved and see who is blessed with an eye towards the future, after the jump!
