I convinced Harold to stay alive as he's important to those quirky tree hippies.”— Brandon Fox (quirky tree hippies, pure gold)
Good morning, afternoon, evening, night or other, and welcome to the Weekly Saturday Polls!
My name is Yessie, and I'll be your waiter this evening. Actually, that reminds me of a conversation I was having with a friend the other day. He recently went to a rather upscale restaurant; you know, the ones where they give you a giant plate but only a cubic centimetre's worth of food. Sparing the details, he payed quite a bit that evening... I don't terribly understand the whole fancy restaurant deal. I mean, you can buy a whole meal at some crappy fast food joint like McDonalds for a few bucks and you'll receive a ton more food than if you'd emptied your savings account for some piece of raw fish the size of your thumbnail drizzled in whatever sauce the chef could find in the kitchen. Really makes me wonder. Is there anything about high society that makes you sigh in disbelief of the self-absorbed vacuousness of the wealthy? Tell me about it in the comments.
Last Week's Results
Anyway, you didn't come here for my restaurant reviews. Moving on to last week's results, you were spoilt for choice with two polls. The first poll was regarding your favourite Fallout 3 side quest.
The results are as follows:
- Coming in third, with seventeen votes, was the Wasteland Survival Guide! The one-stop quest for jumping off Megaton balconies, drinking the water around Cromwell's feet and purchasing land-mines to give to Moira. What fun.
- In second place was You Gotta Shoot 'Em in the Head with 20 votes! Makes getting head-shots a real swift kick in the groin for anyone who chose "Bloody Mess"...
- And in first place, with 28 votes, was Riley's Rangers! Clearly the community shares my love of killing Mutie bastards.
The second question asked Which cancelled Fallout title would you want to see released? The results are as follows:
- In third place with 22 votes was Fallout for Playstation! It probably would have introduced me to the series long before Fallout 3 had it been released...
- Coming in second with 25 votes was Fallout Extreme! Because post-apocalyptia can always get more extreme.
- And in first place, surprise surprise, with an impressive lead of 327 votes, was Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel 2! ... aw, you didn't fall for it? Alright, it was Van Buren!
Speaking of which, who were the six people who voted for BoS2? Leave a comment if you're one of them and I'll remember to blacklist you from the Polls (kidding). Moving on, this week we have to more polls for everyone. The first comes from a little ol' user by the name of... well, they're anonymous, so we'll just call them 126.96.36.199. Vegas to gamblers is like Charlie Sheen in a drug factory. You're spoilt for choice with all the unique and interesting casinos around the Mojave. Some are upscale, like the Ultra-Luxe, others such as Gomorrah are a bit shady. All of them cater to a specific type of person. Which are you? Drumroll please...
Which casino in Fallout: New Vegas do you prefer the most?Thanks!
And as though that's not enough for you, there's more coming! This question comes from another anonymous user, who goes by the name (or numbers, rather) of 188.8.131.52. Now, this is kind of a tricky question as its hard to exactly write up potential answers for it, but just bear with me here. There are plenty of places in the series that are pretty hard to navigate... I know I've gotten lost more than once. Perhaps you have too? Let's hear it...
PLEASE NOTE: You can vote for difficulty in literal navigation, or difficulty in terms of strong enemies etc.
Also, we have an extra question from Old World Relics:
If you were in the Fallout Universe, which settlement would you want to live in and why?
You can answer that one in the comments. Maybe you want Rivet City, the safest place in Washington. Or perhaps you'd want the glamour of living on the Strip. Tell me about it below.
So that's a wrap, ladies and gentlemen. Tell me your favourite casino and which area you had most difficulty in navigating. Maybe you're into the glamour and "fine" dining of the Ultra-Luxe? Perhaps the emptiness of the Sierra Madre suits your needs? I'm personally fond of the Atomic Wrangler... modest, yet somewhat inviting. Its entirely your choice, folks. All you need to do is tell me.
And I'm off for the week. If you can't get enough of Yes-Man, stick around and listen to my stories. If after 19 weeks you're sick of me, well I don't blame you. First on the agenda, it seems as though Jspoelstra won the extra poll last week. Surprising, I thought Jspoelstra was going to beat Jspoelstra, and for a while Jspoelstra and Jspoelstra were tied for third place. Oh well.
Second of all, I asked you ladies and gents to go ahead and give Old World Relics a big thank you before voting on the polls again. I'm rather unhappy to say that nobody did... I had to go ahead and thank him on behalf of ya'll. But don't fret, he wasn't too fussed. Just be mindful that we all need to look out for each other in the community, alright guys? Which brings me to my second gripe... nobody wanted to design a Frank Horrigan-styled mascot. Not even a scribble. Well, one anonymous user gave some suggestions which I'm grateful for. But I was hoping for at least a stick figure from one of you. I s'pose you're not the artistic type?
Last but definitely not least, make sure you all tune in for next week's poll. You probably won't realise it until the week after, but its going to be a very special edition.
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!
