I tend to like flexibility. From that perspective, and wrt Blue, I've really liked the Blue Yeti Pro. Onboard USB if needed, but I can run through my audio gear with the XLR output. I don't know how it compares with the Snowball, though.
In the same sort of vein, for the most part I like the Blackmagic Design Intensity (Thunderbolt). It's outboard, so can capture on the move. However, it only does 1080p30, so if you had the goal of capturing 1080p60, this would be an issue. I've run into this mirroring the output in series to a monitor that only supported 60, and breaking out the interlacing didn't work.
That being said, even if you just use a headphone mic and software capture, getting past that first time can be key. ;) GLHF!!
