Polygon Weekend: Steamy Off-Topic (July 13-14)

Today's header comes to you from PaddyStardust (heh)

The light emanating from the box which sat upon the table cast a sickly glow on the proceedings that evening. Seconds felt like minutes, minutes felt like hours, and in turn days seemed to stretch on and last forever. It was a gamble what would happen within the next sixty seconds, and for all he knew the result could be as crushing as it could be amazing.

He waited, watching the second hand on the clock tick, tock, ever creeping closer to the top of the hour. It was the Summer Steam Sale, and by God would he get that copy of Revelations 2012 if it killed him having to wait all night for a flash sale to do so.

Tick, tock. Tick.
