Polygon Daily: Off-Topic: In The Year 7DD... (Tue 1/1)


Happy new year and 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. Or fireworks. Just be sure to stick to the Polygon Community Guidelines, and we'll be golden folks.

The final header for 2012 was a screenshot from Heretic II, released on the PC (Windows, Linux, Mac, and Amiga). We'll be taking a break this week, but given the results of last week's poll, next week we'll start another month of the header contest and see how we go after that. If you guys have any recommendations for January's header contest, feel free to give them voice!

December's header contest winner is Mintycrys with 5 points! Minty has won a copy of Torchlight II and Fortune Summoners, as well as torturing Paddy (I'll leave that part up to Shaun).

Minty, please contact me via Steam, so I can send your prizes.

I feel like I sold my soul to the devil to create this.

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.

Happy New Year Polynauts!!
