Polygon Daily: Off-Topic of the Future (Thu 13/12)


Welcome to Polygon Daily. What is this thread you ask? It's your daily Community Off-Topic thread where you're given the floor to talk about anything that's caught your eye over the past 24 hours. Just be sure to stick to the Polygon Community Guidelines, and we'll be golden folks.

Tuesday's header was a screenshot from Lagoon, released on the SNES/Super Famicom and Sharp X68000. Congratulations to those of you that guessed correctly! Here's a potentially easy one for today.

Here's the rules:

  • All guesses must be prefaced with #PDGuess. It makes it easier for us to search and go through all the answers. This also allows you to append your guess to the end of a normal comment. Keep in mind, we will be searching ONLY for #PDGuess when we do our search, so it's imperative you put this tag in front of your answer.

  • You only get ONE guess, so make it count. If you guess multiple times, only your first guess will be counted, even if you get it right later on.

  • Guesses will be taken up until the next Polygon Daily is posted.

  • No cheating. I can make this A LOT harder if necessary... :P

  • At the end of each month we will tally up the scores and see who has the most points. That Polynaut will win a surprise.

  • We won't tell you the answer until the next Polygon Daily and we won't be giving any hints. You guys can work together with this, as it's not the first person who gets the right answer gets a point, but each person who gets it right that day. However, at the end of each month... THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE.

And that's it for today, Polynauts. Tune in tomorrow for more Polygon Daily action!

If you're looking to create a header like the one used up top, then check out the Polygon Daily header thread - which still contains some unused Polynauts Central headers and we'll use those eventually out of appreciation for your hard work.

And remember however to subscribe to our @PolygonAll Twitter feed for all breaking news, and @Polynauts for Community updates throughout the day.

Good luck on your guesses!
