Selam, nǐ hǎo, halløj, guten tag, selamat pagi, and welcome to the Weekly Saturday Polls!
I'm sure many of you can top my record attempt at greetings in different languages. Anyway, as you probably know I'm Yes-Man, but you can call me Errol Flynn, because that's way cooler. So, the new Batman movie has been released. Although there has been some sad news regarding a particularly tragic shooting, overall the reviews have been great regarding the film. Personally, I've always preferred the Tim Burton Batman films to the Christopher Nolan ones, and although Heath Ledger was a great guy, Jack Nicholson will always be the Joker as far as I'm concerned. What do you guys think? Are you happy with the realistic take on Batman, or do you prefer the zany comic-book style that Burton gave us? Tell us what you think in the comments.
Last Week's Results
Moving on, let's review the results from last week. Two more polls last week, the first of which asked which Wasteland drifter you'd want accompanying you through the Wastes. Unfortunately, a lot of people didn't understand the whole drifter aspect of it, so I got a few Fawkes or Boone votes... Anyway.
The results are as follows:
- In third place was the badass Tycho with 21 votes. He may have been the first Ranger in Fallout, but he's the third in the polls.
- First time in second place is the Other option with 22 votes. Unfortunately, most people voted for characters who weren't drifters. Read the question next time people!
- And in first place was Cass with 43 votes. Let's be honest, guys - we were all voting for her because she'd be smoking hot in real life.
The second poll concerned the Divergence. This was a bit more straightforward. Let's hear the results...
- The third most popular theory is that the Divergence never occurred, as far as 34 of our faithful voters are concerned. Though we're not going to go delete the page just yet, mind you....
- The second most popular theory is that the Divergence occurred in 1949, with 104 readers behind it. I personally think that this one fits in the best, but whatever...
- And the most popular theory is that the Divergence occurred after World War II, according to 225 voters. Bit too early for my liking, but hey, I'm just the poll guy.
Two more polls this week. Trying to work through my long list of suggestions that pile up each week.
First poll is from anonymous user 22.214.171.124. Clearly the more eccentric Fallout series characters get on some of our nerves. Some of the time they're essential, making it all the more annoying. As we know the law of the Wasteland is... well, there is no law. I think you know what I'm getting at. Drumroll please....
Yes-Man/Saturday Poll - 12?Thanks!
The next poll is about more death. Grim stuff.
Anonymous user 126.96.36.199 is less the homicidal type and more the enemy-killing type. He's suggested the next poll for us. Next time Sticky annoys you, take it out on some muties - it's better for everyone.
Anyway, here's the poll.
So there you have it. Tell us which character you'd most like to ice, and then which enemy you like putting six-feet-under. Perhaps MacCready's foul mouth gets on your nerves. Personally I think Swanick's frantic cheering is annoying as hell.
Anyway, that's all from me this week. It's a bit of a short edition, but I don't really have much to say. As tradition, I'm going to prattle on for a while. Feel free to stop reading if you have important life-or-death stuff to do, because this is just filler.
First off, sorry about the delated update. Just got caught up in chat with some users I haven't seen in ages. First time I've been in chat in ages, mind you. Lost interest a while back, too many new users and a lot of my old pals that joined the Wiki around the same time as me started to drift away, so I was stuck with a bunch of people I didn't know too well most of the time. Was a nice blast from the past chatting to folks like Valoopy, ButteflyKiss and YefPatterson, even if it was for a moment.
Before I forget, I was asked a question by Capt.Lee. Although it didn't work for the poll format, it was still a cool thought to ponder. Perhaps some of you might want to tell me what your ideas are. Anyway, he asked me "What do you think would have happened to the Mojave if Benny had succeeded in killing the Courier and ousting House?" It was a peculiar thought, because so much would have changed. Who could stop Ulysses, the Think Tank, or the White Legs from having their way with Vegas? What would happen between the Legion and NCR, and the fate of Hoover Dam? How would Benny do as the leader of Vegas, and could he keep the casino families under control? There's a lot that could go wrong if the Courier had died in that hole. So tell us - what's your theory on life in the Mojave if Benny's plan hadn't failed?
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!
