Polygon Daily: Off-Topic Alchemical Bacon (Thu 28/2)

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 stuff that's caught your eye over the past 24 hours. Let's keep the frequent big topics off in their own discussion posts, though, to prevent each day's Polygon Daily from overflowing. Also stick to the Polygon Community Guidelines, and we'll be yaokgood.

Tuesday's header was from Mafia 2, released on Windows, OSX, Xbox360, and PS3. Congrats to PaddyStardust, Nipah, spookyxelectric, xMP44x, Thabass, and Mintycrys for guessing correctly!

Today is the last header of the month and I'll announce the winner next Tuesday. I'll be taking a hiatus for at least next month in regards to the header contest. I'll also post how I've been recording the scores, as I think there may be some confusion on how the contest works.

Them 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 include this tag with 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.

  • Even if the first person guesses right, everyone still gets a chance to post their guess. It's not about being first, it's about having the most correct guesses by the end of the month. This makes it fair to people in all time zones.

  • 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.
