    Regarding your lastest post: Yesterday I pretty much informed everyone who posted in the thread, but hadn't predicted yet, that the deadline was coming tuesday. I also spammed some walls of users that posted in certain sales threads.

    Counting only users who predicted for all platforms: 2009 had 23 participants, 2010 had 17, 2011 had 26, 2012 had 33. I spammed a lot at least in 2011 and 2012. At 19 now I think we're doing fine. I know for sure there are a couple of users waiting till the final moments.

    on 04 November 2013

    Also each year many former participants seem to have left the site, so that it's hard to grow our 'installbase' :p

    on 04 November 2013

    On that excel sheet you sent me there are 38 participants for 2012 (41-3). Also thanks for messaging people, you've asked me to take over this feature, but you're still putting in as much work as I am

    I just want to see 30 participants, 11 more to go.

    on 04 November 2013

    Perhaps if you'd like more participants you could say at the start of the first post that predicting for One and PS4 is still open. As well as putting 'predict One and PS4' or something in the thread title.
    Last year I accepted a late participant, but then put a star behind his name. I think accepting fmjasinski would be just fine.

    on 06 November 2013

    His WiiU number is low, he clearly didn't look at Media Create.

    If I had only made the thread sooner, I was just so busy in October.

    Hey, just wanted you to know I submitted my predictions on your 10 Week Countdown 2013.

    I saw your post, I only ask for a message if you edit, just so I don't miss it (you can write on the thread wall too, I'm reading all the posts).

    "I just want to point out Seece is one of the most respected members in this forum"



    Maybe, but he is certainly not RESPECTFUL. at least not with me.

    Think about why? No offence, but you're strongly opinionated, and you demand that view things in the way you do.

    Anyway, I'm happy that you voted on the 10W countdown, but lets not derail the thread talking about Vita TV. Like Seece said if VGC counts it they count it, I can't un-count it.

    on 29 October 2013

    "but lets not derail the thread talking about Vita TV"

    that's why I came here instead. and I merely try to make others think with logic. whatever way you see, it's obvious seece has bias towards me. did you notice how fast he was to ridicularize me when i made the 10W countdown prediction? he posted right after me.

    on 29 October 2013

    Your prediction.....it's kinda extreme, that's why Seece commented, he's good at pointing things out. You expect 3DS to sell nearly 50% better then everyone else, and your WiiU prediction is 300% larger then the average.

    Anyway, what seems logical to you, is annoying to others. Your thoughts on Vita TV are you opinion, nothing more. You're classifying it on traits you give the largest value to, one being not able to play a lot of Vita games. Others, also logically, base their opinion on other traits, like being a standalone console (meaning you don't need another console to play it, like the GBP).

    While limited, it's still designed to play Vita games, it's named Vita, and it's still a Vita console.

    I mean in a less extreme situation, the GBA micro couldn't use the e-reader accessory. Plus it's common for a redesign lose backward compatibility as in the case with DS, PS3, and Wii.

    Also P.S. there is a video of the guy making the N64 Portable, no Rumble Pack or memory card ports.

    on 29 October 2013

    you do need a tv and a ps controller

    on 29 October 2013

    So what? It's still its own system, it doesn't require a PS3 to play it (so it's not a peripheral).

    on 29 October 2013

    and why exactly are my numbers extreme? my numbers are optimistic. if you compare to non gravity's and think man's predictions, of course it will look huge since their numbers are amazingly low.

    also, if seece is so good at pointing out things, why didn't he point out non gravity's numbers for wii u? sounds exactly like bias to me.

    anyway, the point I'm trying to make is that we are bound to see many different predictions on that topic and people should show some respect. you didn't see me bashing the other users predictions, did you?

    on 29 October 2013

    chill out man, fine optimistic, still they are far from the average.

    Seece wasn't bashing you

    on 29 October 2013

    he wasn't bashing me, he was ridicularizing me.

    on 30 October 2013

    Michael is right, I wasn't bashing or (ridiculizing, is that even a word?) it's BANTER, and I've told you before you need to stop taking all of this so seriously, it means nothing in our day to day lives so don't get so hung up about it, it's nothing remotely personal. If I see whacky predictions I'll give my opinion, and I didn't even look at non-gravity's yet. And one last thing, if I see anyone saying it will only sell something silly like 1m this holiday I always tell them that's not going to happen.

    Is it going up this weekend?

    I have a test on Monday, can I put it up Monday Night? After Monday I'm going to have a lot more spare time on my hands, so I will be able to spare enough time every week for this.

    on 26 October 2013

    Yea, I can see why people wanted this up sooner, I promise for Monday, I'll start editing what you gave me a little bit this weekend, and maybe if I'm lucky I'll have it up before Monday, but no promises before Monday

    on 26 October 2013

    Actually, I think I can get the thread up tonight, just want to know how you uploaded....wait nvm, I figured it out. I think I can copy the table as save it as a file on its own, then photobucket.

    So the thread will be up tonight, we will be voting 360,PS3,3DS,PSV,WiiU,PS4,One

    on 26 October 2013

    Wait that didn't work. Anyway, as soon as you e-mailed me how you converted tables into a jpg so I can uploaded it to photobucket, I can get the thread up. Got all the initial post work pretty much done now.

    on 26 October 2013

    Wait, I'm spamming my own wall, but you already told me how to convert a table into a jpg.....looks like I'll have to copy the files and snip it on my tower (it's plugged into my TV, so it's awkward to use as a computer).

    I'm going to make the first post tonight after work, I can't make the 3rd and 4th posts showing peoples predictions until monday because I won't be home all weekend (I will have my laptop though). What I'm going to do to make the tables into pictures is take a screenshot and merge the pictures. For the first post this is fine because I can fit everything on my screen, but for the bigger total votes pictures....I'll need to do your technique (or find another way)

    Anyway, ranting aside, expect the thread up soon.

    Hey Michael, could you please predict a score for

    Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies ASAP please otherwise you'll receive a penalty point. Thanks!

    I'm confused, for the prediction league? Oh right I'm suppose to change Mario Party yes?

    Are we changing Watch Dogs too?

    on 24 October 2013

    No not changing anything else now

    on 24 October 2013

    And I'm afraid because Ace Attorney scores are out now I can't add your prediction, would be unfair to other users :

    on 24 October 2013

    I think we're just far away. I like FF13 and Nier more than any of Square's offerings prior to 1999. Only thing that's in that tier is FF4 but I played the DS remake so I'm not counting it.

    We are opposites. Nier annoyed me so much, I sold it right after I beat it. It's just nothing compared to Drakengard (same devs). Nowhere nearly as dark, and you're not rewarded as well for playing towards the other endings (which involve different levels and maps in Drakengard, not the same game 3 more times with different endings).

    Prior to 2003, I think Squaresoft was the best. I love FF 1-9, Chrono Trigger/Cross, Super Mario RPG (newer Mario RPG's are just garbage in comparision), XenoBlade, Secret of Mana, Front Mission 1 (3 and 4 are okay too), etc etc.

    LOL, just like how you enjoyed FFIV on DS, I love SE's modern handheld games, but mostly the remakes of older games. Still Dragon Quest IX is fun, Bravery Default looks cool.......ahh, but I still love the remakes more

    on 04 October 2013

    XenoGears* I do love XenoBlade too though.

    on 04 October 2013

    I thought DQ9 was just a bad game. It had some good elements but the story was awful and it got to the point where I just wanted to get it over with. Pales in comparison to DQ8.

    As far as SE's modern handheld games, Crisis Core is my favorite big time. Also think TWEWY is vastly overrated.

    on 05 October 2013

    Oh, I really did love Dragon Quest VIII, I haven't played much of either DQ VIII or IX, they've both been on my TDL, but keep getting pushed down (getting a 3DS XL and playing IX with a larger screen). VIII - I beat the demo disk, only to find out the first hour of the game is the demo. Loved it, but just haven't been able to replay that hour lol.

    Now we're starting to agree, I gave TWEWY a solid 5 hours, thought it was okay, but nothing special. I haven't played Crisis Core yet, only had a PSP for a year, but it's on the top of my PSP TDL, and I think it looks great.

    Are you interested in Drakengard 3? Are you a Kingdom Hearts fan?

    on 06 October 2013

    I'm about done with Drakengard now, for the purpose of Drakengard 3.

    I like Kingdom Hearts, but I do think the internet greatly overrates the series. Mostly in the story department (because it's awful). I see the game as fanservice for FF fans, because that's the main reason why I play the series.

    on 06 October 2013

    So you're interested in Drakengard 3? Good.

    I'm not a fan of Kingdom Hearts. Like you said it's fan service, and I never was big on Disney.

    Since I recently beat Shadow of the Damned. Vanquished is probably the most likely candidate of games I'm going to tackle next its either that or Saints Row 4.

    Vanquish. It's pretty short and easy, but if you want to get a full 1,000/1,000 beating challenge mode......it's damn rewarding when you do it.

    on 26 September 2013

    I doubt that I will go for the 1,000/1,000 since I rarely go for full completion of my games unless they are super easy. The only game that I got all the achievements for that was somewhat challenging is Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection and maybe Eternal Sonata but that was mainly time consuming since I needed a third play through to get all the achievements instead of two.

    on 27 September 2013

    Oh, I try to get 1,000/1,000 if it's a fun game, isn't too time consuming, or just fun an easy. So I have 1,000 in stuff like Fallout because it's easy, but Vanquish is short and fun, so worth a hard challenge for 1,000......

    .... I wish 360 games could get platinum trophy's..

    Don't read GamrReview articles. I was perma-banned when I critiqued the writing style of Brent. Some articles are rushed, poorly written, and omit important information. Got banned when I critiqued his article negatively, despite praising another article by a different author at the same time. Brent's a sore loser, and can't accept constructive criticism, so he instead banned me and deleted all my recent posts to cover up his unjustified ban. Don't read GamrReview, not until they control their mods.

    GamerReview is a bit of a flop website anyways. It's full of trolls, and the only people that use it are vgchart members. I see vgchartz members show there true colors on that site by attacking other platforms and games and the mods dont do anyways.
