Boys and girls of every age, wouldn't you like to see something strange? Come with us and you will see, the Weekly Saturday Polls with me!
Alright, so I sort of changed the lyrics to fit in with the Saturday Polls. Nobody will notice... my name is Yes-Man, and contrary to popular belief, I am not really the robot from the video game. Although I will pretend to be if you mail me cash. So I hear that Bonnie and Clyde's guns are going up for auction, eh? I never understood why people shell out millions of bucks for a grade-A dust collector. And how they can justify it, when there are starving kids overseas. Honestly, when are you ever going to need Bonnie and Clyde's guns? Just to put it on the mantle and start conversation? It had better be a million-dollar conversation, I tell you what...
Last Week's Results
So, last week we had two questions, like usual. The first was a pretty cool one about what your favourite New Vegas location was. I tell you what, ladies and gentleghouls, it was a darn close vote.
The results are as follows:
- In third place was The Divide with thirty votes. I'm surprised it got that far considering the game pretty much constantly reminds you how much of a sinkhole it is.
- Coming in second, we had the Big MT with 43 votes. That's Big Moutain, not Big Empty, for all you lobotomites out there.
- And in a close first place was the Mojave Wasteland with 48 votes. Mojave? Mo problems.
The second poll was about which tutorial character you liked the most. It really wasn't much of a competition, but here are the results regardless...
- Striking out at third was Easy Pete with twenty-nine votes. To quote one user - "Doesn't give you enough dynamite".
- With a home run in second was Sunny Smiles with 148 votes. To my knowledge, she got most of her votes due to being an attractive young lady in a tight leather jumpsuit... which is entirely legitimate.
- And knocking it out of the park at first was Doc Mitchell with a staggering 265 votes. He must have reprogrammed us to like him when he was rootin' around in our brains.
I got two more polls for you, guys. The first comes from a friend of mine, Frankie, who had a rather creative idea. Now, for some of you this will be difficult, because a lot of gamers aren't familiar with Fallout and Fallout 2. But try to vote the best you can.
Ever wonder what it would really be like if you were in the Fallout universe? Personally, I'd be one of those crazy people who mutters gibberish on the roadside. But for you adventurous types, you'd need some help surviving out there. Drumroll please...
Which wasteland drifter would you take with you in a real-life post-apocalyptic experience, and why?Thanks!
And we got another poll. This might only apply to people who are familiar with the lore of Fallout, but our poll-suggestor extraordinaire MJ567 has a rather interesting idea. We all know that the Fallout world and the real world are different - but it's not sure when the Divergence from reality actually took place. MJ has written a pretty cool blog about his suggestions, but we want to hear yours. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the Divergence, you can read more about it here. Anyway, let's get on to the poll...
Anyway, there you have it. Tell us your choice in real-life Wasteland companion, and you thoughts on when the Divergence, well... diverged.
When voting on the first poll, please remember that you must vote for a drifter. You can't select "Other" and then choose Fawkes, because he's not a drifter. A drifter is someone who travels from place to place without any real destination in mind, such as the ones listed. You can choose other drifters such as the Lonesome Drifter from Fallout: New Vegas or (and this is stretching it) John Cassidy or Herbert Daring Dashwood. But please don't vote for someone who isn't a drifter just because you like them. And make sure to give a reason! Perhaps you choose Tycho because he's a total badass, I dunno.
Anyway, that's it for the polls. You can stick around and hear me prattle on about uninteresting stuff leading on to next week, or you can leave me a comment below. Either way I'm still going to talk about pointless stuff.
First off, look what I saw while checking up on a different Wiki a few days ago:
That's right! Someone up there must like me. And by up there, I mean Wikia. Because apparently, my polls are being advertised across Wikia's network. That's pretty kickass, I think. Didn't know I was so popular, but... well, I guess my pointless drivel and constant bad jokes are popular.
Wiki-wise, my close amigo and fellow Team Awesome member TwoBears has recently reached one year on the Wiki! Go there and tell him how amazing he is. Right now.
Until next week, have fun everyone. If you have any crazy ideas for a fun poll, just tell me about it on my talk page, or catch me in chat. I'll be here every Saturday so be patient!
