Polygon Daily: Off-Topic: Eve of a New Age (20-21/12)


Note: Due to possible technical difficulties, Friday's Polygon Daily appears to be delayed! Why not relax in the ruins of yesterday's pre-end of world Polygon Daily post!

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 Mega Lo Mania, also known as Tyrants: The Fight Through Time, released on the Amiga, Atari ST, Sega Genesis/Mega Drive, SNES, PC, and Sharp X68k. Congratulations to that one guy that guessed correctly! :P

Today should be easier, I guess?

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. There might be a surprise for that individual.

  • 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.

I don’t think the missus would appreciate that. Think of the pounding you will get.

And that's it for today, Polynau̵͉͈̱̤͙̻͖͙͎̦͈̰͎̬̭̪̥̣̿̈́̇̎ͨ̓͑̉ͫ̈̆́ͯ͋̓̄̒͘ts. 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 Pơ̞̜̞͕̑͛̂ͫ̌ͥ̒ͭlynauts Central headers and we'll use those eventually out of appreciation for your hard work.

Sorry about the delay on today's PD. Some weird stuff has been going down tonight.
