Polygon Daily: Off-Topic: Pre-Loaded Armless Dragons (Thu 17/1)


Welcome to Polygon Daily. What is Polygon Daily, 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 happy campers.

Tuesday's header was from Vortex released on the SNES\Super Famicom. Congrats to those of you that guessed correctly! I know someone asked and yes it was pretty terrible. I rented it when I was a kid and it was no Star Fox, let me tell you, despite having the Super FX chip.

Here's the rules:

  • Place #PDGuess in front of all your guesses. 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. The Polynaut with the most points at the end of the month, wins.

  • I won't tell you the answer until the next Polygon Daily and I won't be giving any hints. Not even Shaun knows the answers to these headers. 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.

Should I move past the 8-bit and 16-bit era of gaming? Seems a lot of these are rather difficult and zombie said this would be a cake walk.
