Polygon Daily: Off-Topic Magical Pushback


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 Illusion of Gaia\Illusion of Time, released on the SNES\Super Famicom. Today marks the last header entry of the month, so by the time Friday's Polygon Daily is posted, I will know the winner for this month. This month's winner will receive at least one game, to be announced with the winner (at least, as there were a few people showing interest in sweetening the pot). There's been rumours of an additional prize of a 'Pick your pose Paddy' where the winner gets choose a (non-obscene) pose for a Paddy image, which will ultimately end up in the vast repertoire of Paddyshops. I haven't heard from Paddy on that one. Surprise Paddy! (blame Shaun)

With all that said, I've opened a poll to see if you all want to keep doing this on Tuesdays\Thursdays and having a monthly winner that receives a game or other sort of reward (XBL\PSN credit, etc.). Recommendations are also open to the floor, as we could always look at revising the format.

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.
