Instead of let the best "man" win, let the best "man, woman, asexual super mutant, artificial intelligence, or any other weird creature in post-apocalyptia" win.”— Paladin117
Are you thinking what I'm thinking, B1? I think I am, B2... it's time for the Weekly Saturday Polls!
I'm your host B1, er, Yes-Man. Come to think of it, most of you guys won't understand the reference. Extra points if you do. Anyway, you've probably noticed the quote at the top of the page. It's a new thing I'm trying out, created by The Gunny and recommended by Energy X. I figured that if a user says something amusing in the comments, I'll make a list of quotes and put them at the top of the page. There's a total of six quotes which automatically cycle through every so often. If you say something I like, then you might find your quote show up some time next week. In other news, I didn't get many suggestions for Poll names last week, so for the time being I'll keep it as Weekly Saturday Polls. Thanks to everyone who suggested a name.
Last Week's ResultsEdit
Time to look over the results from last week. Two questions were asked, with the first being Who is your favourite Fallout series antagonist? Due to the size of the poll, there are some joint winners.
The results are as follows:
- In joint third place, each with a total of eight votes, are President Eden, Caesar and Colonel Autumn! One Legion in the hand is worth two Enclave in the bush.
- Coming up in joint second places were Elijah', Mobius and The Master, all of which received 11 votes. Silver medals for a blob, a brain, and a... well, bastard.
- And coming up first, with 27 votes, is the man himself Ulysses! He shares his position with no man, not even the Courier.
The second poll was regarding What is your favourite Fallout series Heavy Weapon? The results are as follows:
- Saddled with the bronze medal, with eighty-six votes, was the Gatling Laser; adored by smart-stupid mutants and Enclave soldiers alike.
- Taking home a silver medal was the Fat Man, with 128 votes. Super fun, so long as idiots don't get a hold of it and kill everything within a five mile radius.
- And winning the gold medal with a total of 146 votes was the Tesla Cannon! I can't think of anything witty to put here, so this will suffice.
Two more polls again for your reading pleasure. The first comes from Sector 36, who's question I've postponed for a while due to it's similarity to another poll we had a few weeks back. There are a varied selection of disc-jockeys in the world of Fallout. Some people love them, others would much rather prefer to listen to the dying screams of a Raider than suffer through another Public Service Announcement (no, Three-Dog, they're never important). Yet all in all, you must have a favourite... right? Drumroll please...
Who is your favourite Fallout series radio host?Thanks!
Our second poll comes from our good friend 126.96.36.199. There's always a quest that takes forever. For me, it would have to be that one in Fallout 3 where you have to repair Three-Dog's radio dish (mostly because I avoid it at all costs). Sometimes, you start the quest as a weak little drifter who struggles to take down radroaches, and by the time you're finished you're a veteran Wasteland warrior that strangles Deathclaws bare-handed. Which quest was it for you? Lights, camera, poll...
Apologies for the lack of Fallout/Fallout 2 quest options... I've yet to play them.
As for the additional question tacked on the end this week, I think I'll go with something speculative which everyone can enjoy while we wait for Fallout 4.
What is one thing you want to see in the next Fallout game?
Notice the emphasis on the word ONE. You can only choose a single thing - I don't want to see long wish lists that clog up the comments. That's what the forum is for, ladies and gents.
So there you have it. Tell me your favourite Disc-Jockey, the longest quest, and what you want to see in the yet-to-be-announced Fallout 4. Perhaps you like Margaret as a reminder of when you slaughtered Three-Dog. Or maybe Wayne Newton soothes your ears. And don't forget the insane rantings of Tabitha. It's all up to you.
PLEASE NOTE: Don't vote for favourite radio stations, just the host.
That's all from me this week ladies and gents. Feel free to stop reading now, as the rest of what I write is merely a stream of consciousness. Lemme think, lemme think... what's going on in the world these days? Well, Australia are embarrassing ourselves in the Olympics. Rather poor effort with only a handful of gold medals. Oh well, better luck next time...
Wiki-wise, most of you won't care all that much, but today is the last day to revote on the talk-page rules. I personally think the rules work better in theory than in practice, but the community is divided between keeping and abolishing the whole thing. Archiving rules are the icing on the cake for me, but it's not good icing... it's like that really sweet butter cream which looks good but when you bite into it, it's all sugary and gross, then you wonder why you had to spoil the perfectly fine cupcake with it... Now I'm hungry, so I'm gonna go get a bite to eat.
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!
