  1. That last one might be a fact, is it the Daily Double?
    Also, how in the Spiral did you take that screenshot at the top, if you did at all?

  2. Daily Double? Hmm...

    No, the first picture is one from KingsIsle. If you ever see their screens, they have several special buttons, some that I assume will give them the ability to move the camera around for pictures.
