My fellow Forumer and all around tequila drinking studdette Riot Monster has recently created a wonderful series of E3 predictions that can be seen right here.
Having perused through these I came to the conclusion that while they are informative, they lack a certain je ne se quois
. I believe that this is due to the fact that for all intents and purposes her predictions are reality anchored. My predictions as well as my revelations are not shackled with such trivialities as reasonable assumptions or truth. What follows below are things that if they did happen would be:
B. No Brainer.
C. Not in a million years.
D. Kick ass for all parties involved.
Now sit, please. As I give you a private reading, a glimpse into the future. Let me look unto my crystal ball, concentrate, and chant the gypsy incantation that will part the fabric of time and space and show me what may be, what could be, what will be and what never was. Yes, its all become clearer now. I see...

*Nintendo will finally unveil their new IP called Wii Shake this Nunchuck like an Idiot
. The game will be demoed by the master game maker himself Shigeru Miyamoto. He will explain that the inspiration for his new game came to him in a vision while he was using a pepper shaker on his food. He thought "Wouldn't it be fun if we had a game where you could just isolate the shaking mechanism by itself as the focus for a game? Through different scenarios, shaking the nunchuck like an idiot would be a fresh experience as well as a universal one that old and young gamers alike can enjoy"
