Polygon Daily: Off-Topic Parallel Parking (Tue 5/2)

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 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.

Last month's final header was from Remember Me, not yet released on PC, XBOX 360, and PS3. Congrats to those of you that guessed correctly!

It looks like Mintycrys wins again for this month. Up for grabs this time around was 2400 MSP. Minty, shoot me a message on Steam, so I can give you your code.

As some of you noticed on the last header, I MAY have done a little image manipulation. Expect this to happen on the easier headers when it comes to games from this generation or the previous generation. Don't worry, though, I'm not going to render the image unintelligible, just enough so you guys can't take the easy way out.

We're also entertaining the idea of changing the format for next month. Rather than have headers, we're going to change them to haikus. This obviously requires some thought, planning, and writing (as well as me not screwing up on syllables) that I didn't have time to prepare for this month. If there's interest in changing to this format, please please please sound off below. If this is a more preferred format, I can look at starting it at the half-way mark for this month.

Oh and uhh... good luck with today's guesses!

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 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.

And that's it for today Polynauts. 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.

And remember however to subscribe to our @PolygonAll Twitter feed for all breaking news, and @Polynauts for Community updates throughout the day.

I was considering joining the Youtube embedded auto-play crowd and exposing you all the wonders of Stalaggh. You know, play the card that exposes the complete opposite side of the spectrum (evil) for this feature. Except I don't hate you guys and wouldn't force aural trauma on you. :P
