Polygon Daily: Off-Topic Team Break (Fri 7/12)


Todays header is brought to you by Nerubian Assasin The Writer

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 Friday, soon it will be the weekend, or the weekly festival of video games as I like to call it

In fact, here's some stuff relating to the thing I just said, so let's read it.

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 if anyone fancies joining Natalie on this slightly ominous list I've made, you know what to do.
