Polygon Daily: 'Speed-Run' Compatibility Enabled (Mon 22/4)

Regular Polygon Daily headers will resume tomorrow.

Today sees the first addition to the Polygon Daily layout for a while, and that update comes in the form of Speed Run. Every day we'll be embedding the latest Speed Run episode for those who don't venture outside of this thread so that you can catch up with the latest news from the games industry. Take a trial run today and drop your thoughts below.

I know we have quite a few lurkers who read the daily off-topic thread, and some have mentioned on other places they have trouble finding a place to jump in if 100, 200 or 500 comments have already been posted.

Here's my advice for those lurkers reading: Jump in, and start a new comment chain.

We'd love it if you dropped in and said hello.

With that said let's crack on with the daily news, and remember: 'Speed Run', 'Speed Run', 'Speed Run'.

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.
