Polygon Daily: Off Topic Threaded Goodness (Mon 12/3)


Todays header is brought to you by the letter 's' which stands for 'spookyxelectric'

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.

It's Monday! What does that mean? GLOOM. Halogon last night was fun, but also a bust. Why? Because we forgot to install the software to run the HD capture device.


We had the Polygon/Vox Video Crew on last night as well, Jimmy & Tom had fun with you guys - Paddy controlled my Xbox. I sat and just played Revelations 2012. It was not worth the effort.

It's the start of a new week, I'm glad for that after the awfulness of last week, and whilst I'll never forget, we march on. Have a good day folks, I'll be in the comments across the site if you wanna hang.

And thats it for today Polynauts, of the mothership known as Polygon. Tune in tomorrow for more Polygon Daily news updates. 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 suscribe to our @PolygonAll Twitter feed for all breaking news, and @Polynauts for Community updates throughout the day. Now, it's Monday, so why not wipe that frown off your face with an Orange Mocha Frappuccino!
