A few of us will all be in the same place during Nintendo's E3 show, so we decided to make it interesting.

To make our E3 experience more nonsensical and competitive, the quintet of NWR friends that are conjoining in an undisclosed New Jersey bunker on Tuesday June 13 are putting their pride on the line with some good old-fashioned E3 bets. Here are your challengers:

  • NWR Director Neal Ronaghan
  • NWR Features Editor Justin Berube
  • NWR Associate Editor Casey Gibson
  • Third Rate Minion/Friend of the Site Alex Wanschura
  • Third Rate Minion/Friend of the Site Tony Wanschura

The rules are as follows: winner will pick a game of their choosing that the loser has to stream. Ties result in split points, though tiebreaker goes to those who are under the actual answer. Anything else will be sorted out in random fighting games. Without further adieu, your bets.

I've got a four point spread on a Neal vs Justin match up, who wants this action?
