Poll Results: The Sign of the Nightblade and N64 Rocks

Welcome back to the ShoddyCast and here again we have our weekly poll results! This week we asked what class you thought you’d be starting your adventures in ESO with and then asked which Nintendo home console was your favorite. So grab a drink and sit your butt down and let’s take a gander at the results.


Sign of the Nightblade

What class will you be playing first in ESO?

So we asked this question quite a while ago, probably soon after starting the website, but there wasn’t really enough people to consider it a proper poll. Now we have you great people so we can actually see some results this time. Before I continue, I wanted to mention that Tamriel Foundry has a nice lineup of all the base skills for the 4 classes. Take a look and get an idea of what to expect from each class and maybe get a build in mind. Please notice that there are no skill morphs listed which will really change each skill, plus there’s no magicka/stamina costs, cast times or durations.

I have to say I’m quite pleased with the results on this one. All of the classes are well represented and there isn’t a big difference between the least and the most chosen class. This means the game will have a nice balance of classes in the beginning and we won’t have an overabundance of one particular class. Of course, this will probably change given the relatively small sample size compared to the 3 million+ that will play this game. People also tend to change their minds before game launch (myself included) or just don’t have their minds made up yet.


Nightblade narrowly takes the cake on this one, making it the most popular class choice among ShoddyCast followers. Not shocking as it is the stealthy class and TES fans love their stealth. I foresee a lot of Nightblade archers running around Tamriel at launch, with their poison arrows and such and I’m alright with that. My main choice has been a Khajiit Nightblade by the name of Dar’Turok. He will still be the main character you’ll see but my true main will be completely different. In fact, it will be a woman High Elf Templar. Doesn’t get much more different than that.


So please, take a look at the articles posted on Tamriel Foundry and get a feel for the skills available to your favorite classes. It will give you a head start on your journey through ESO.

N64 Rocks

Which Nintendo home console is your all time favorite?

Most questions like these are pretty biased. It usually comes down to which console you played first as a kid as all the warm and fuzzy feelings bubble up inside you and you can’t help but pick it. My first Nintendo was actually my dad’s when he brought home a Nintendo Entertainment System. Yep, the original NES. Josh won’t remember this because he was still a good 3 years before being born, but this was a good time. Duck Hunt and Super Mario Brothers dual cartridge was probably the most used in the bunch, plus I had the gun that went with it.


Growing up, I had actually skipped SNES and got a Sega Genesis which I loved as well. After that came the N64. It’s hilarious to go back to these games that you thought had the best graphics you’d seen and then realize what crap it actually was. Sure it has the dumbest controller of all time, but it didn’t matter honestly because it was about the experiences. I’ll still argue today that Ocarina of Time on N64 is one of the best games ever made. Hopefully at least 2 of you will back me up. Turok 2: Seeds of Evil was pretty badass too though and Josh is old enough to remember me lighting those gorilla looking guys on fire as they waved their hands in the air. Good times. Haha.


So sure the poll is biased but one thing we can take away from this is that Wii U really does suck.

    This was a poll, Nintendo is a company.

    I love Ocarina of Time, I even have an emulator on my Xperia Z so I can play it at work. Sure the poll is biased but its still fun, and Nintendo may not be making the best consoles these days but I dont think that is a bad thing, they are the first to be as innovative and do it right, they have created their own niche genre of console gaming that can’t even be compared with Sony or Microsoft consoles, which was smart since they couldnt keep up with them or compete, so they made their own market.

    You want both of your main chars to be in the same faction, Kyle? Won’t the quests get a little boring for you?

    I’m torn between going for a tanky dragonknight and a duel wielding sorcerer. I’ll decide when I play in open beta.
