I'm thinking about getting either Dark Souls 3 when it comes out or Street Fighter V. Which should I get? F.DS DECIDES!

Dark Souls 3 because unlike the latter, it's probably good.

Going to assume by the fact that you are even asking this question, you are new to Souls? I will say Dark Souls 3, but with the preface that you should play the previous Souls games (including Demon's Souls) and Bloodborne first if you haven't, as DS3 has many references to those games, and they're all great and well worth your time anyway. (You can skip Dark Souls 2 if you don't have time for it; it was made by a different team/director and typically seen as not quite up to the same quality, which I personally agree with) At the very least, you should play Dark Souls 1. I can't comment on SF because I haven't played one of those since SFII, but I would have to imagine if you wait on it you could get a better deal when the turbo ultra deluxe pony edition comes out.

as someone who has very little good to say about SF4 or marvel vs. capcom 3, i've been pleasantly surprised with SF5 thus far.  capcom actually followed through on the "back to basics" approach here, whereas SF4 ended up being a weird jumble of classic SF and guilty gear/blazblue style gameflow.  this is from the perspective of somebody who's played in tournaments since 2001, mind you.

if you aren't the kind of person who drives 3 hours and pays money to press buttons next to dudes who haven't showered in 2 days, i strongly recommend waiting on SF5.  the launch has been a disaster with the majority audience, as the game offers nothing to do besides play story mode and get bodied online.  they're going to add more modes & features at some point in the future, so that would likely be the point you want to jump in.  plenty more characters will be out by then too.

I'm not that good when it comes to fighting games. But I've had a blast with SFV. I've played some online games with random people and enjoyed those. But mainly I've played with a  friend who is much better than me. But I've still had a great time with it. The Souls series is great, though. I would say go for that. Unless you have friends you enjoy playing fighting games with.

Yay, new iPhone 7 coming out and guess what, there's no headphone jack. You'll have to connect Apple approved Bluetooth wireless headphones if you want to listen to your music now. Another $100. I like Apple products, but I'm getting really sick of this blatant rip-off. I don't care if the phone is thinner. If anything, I want it bigger, so at least the battery life is better.

This is why I dislike Apple. I'm not really a big fan of their products, but I'll admit that they make some quality stuff. But the fact that they make the only hardware that runs their software means that they can pull stuff like this, forcing you to buy extra equipment if you want to use their software at all. If a manufacturer for hardware that runs Android, Windows, or whatever software competing with Apple tried this, they would lose business. But that's just me, no hard feelings towards anyone who likes Apple.

That's actually the only merit of Apple products for me. You don't have to worry about compatibility when they're the ones making everything you use.

Although obviously, it is not enough of a merit to compensate for the fact that you have to pay 1.5-2 times (or even more in some cases) the price for hardware with similar specs and then it comes with an OS which is far less versatile and customizable than, say, Windows.

That may be true, but I'd say Windows is significantly more annoying to do anything in once you get used to the Unix way of doing things. A lot more things "just work" on OSX.

I would say that osx is significantly more annoying once you're used to windows too.

The same is true with the opposite to some degree, at least for me.

The nearby barcade has a deal on Fridays where the first 100 people get 20 free tokens. They normally open at 3, and I get off work at 3. It's perfect. This month, they're opening at 11 because of a basketball thing.

Now I have to decide if I want to take a lunch break at 11 to go get tokens. They serve pizza, so I could actually eat there. It's actually not bad.

Well, highly customizable systems are inherently more annoying once you get used to a system that doesn't expect you to spend a lot of time and effort customizing things.

Having gone from Windows to Mac and back again, I think both are fine but one of them is about ten times more expensive for no particularly good reason, so...

Well, highly customizable systems are inherently more annoying once you get used to a system that doesn't expect you to spend a lot of time and effort customizing things.

Okay, I should probably clarify this: when I said annoying, I meant for programming. Unix is a highly customizable system, arguably more customizable than Windows, and I prefer it over Windows when it comes to programming. I also favor OSX over Windows for programming, because it's basically Unix at the end. For everything else, I prefer Windows.

A lot of libraries are designed for Linux/OSX first and Windows second, and trying to get them to work on Windows can be a nightmare. My current setup is an unholy mess of Windows as the OS, Cygwin on top to replicate the Unix command line, and a Debian virtual machine for anything I can't get working on Windows.

Highly customizable systems don't have to be more annoying if their system defaults are good enough for your needs. Both Windows and OSX are 95% good enough, and the remaining 5% isn't worth the cost for me.
