Geeklife: 2013 Predictions *FAIL*

As I look back to the start of 2013, nGeeklfie wasn’t here, I had an older website dedicated for Nintendo news, but I wasn’t able to keep up with every flash at its time. Well anyway one of the articles that mostly got attention was 2013 forecasts, and having the old website down wasn’t going to stop me from doing it again over here, that is why today I decided to bring up my 2013 predictions to see what’s right! And what’s not!

Without further ado (mainly because this is a list and not a person) the first thing is looking at 2013 predictions, since the website was actually only Nintendo news, the predictions relate to that. Today I will post and count the right and wrong of my 2013 predictions, and just by reading the title, I think you know my grade. 2014 predictions will not only be Nintendo of course, it will contain everything geeky from games and all the way to comics and mangas.

  1. Mario Kart U, Sport Related Mario Game reveal and we’ll have a demo for both
