I honestly think their move to remove the headphone jack had to do with a push towards wireless headphones than anything else.
I personally wouldn't buy the Apple wireless headphones, since there are many other far superior choices on the market for less $ like Jaybird X2 for example. Also wireless headphones aren't locked to Apple or Android phones, they are universal between platforms, regardless of the type of phone you're using.

I agree with you Beamer on not much benefit to the consumer with the 3.5mm audio jack removal, however since they include the adapter in the box I don't think it is such a huge deal either for people that wants to use their 3.5mm jack peripherals.

Or what happens if someone wants to switch to Android? All their headphones are now worthless to them.
The few lightning port headphones I've seen comes with an adapter to 3.5mm jack
I really don't see why this is such a huge deal about the connectors.
Android phones change from USB to USB type C
Is that such a big deal to people also?

Motorola has dropped the headphone jack a month or two ago on their latest phones, but I don't remeber seeing anyone flipping out about it.
Apple does it and people screaming bloody murder
Keep on hating

You may not remember but there were, at least about the type c connector. I don't can't recall if any of the numerous threads on the issue were motorola specific, however they didn't announce a $159 pair of earbuds as the best solution for replacing your 3.5mm headphones.
A lightning port headphone as well as an adapter to use your 3.5mm headphones is included in the box with the iPhone7
So I am not sure what the problem is.

I use Bluetooth headphones so for me personally makes no difference what so ever.
The only people that the headphone jack removal can cause problem is those that want to use the headphone while charging the phone. I understand if they are upset, but again Apple isn't the first one to remove the audio jack, but sure is the first to get shit for it.

Dawn of War I was a real jewel and I loved how it played. A really fun RTS. You could play at any pace you wanted and enjoy the game.

Dawn of War II is a what happens when some middle manager gets word of market research that shows how many people are playing MOBAS, and decides to remold DOW game play to be more like that, small maps, restrictive lane like 'on rails' type progression across the map, and lastly micro managed maniac clicking twitch fest boss fights.

Looks like III is even more lane like and fast paced. Yuk.
Agreed
I didn't mind DoW2 but DoW1 was superior in every possible way.
Not sure how I feel about DoW3 yet. The gameplay vids didn't really wow me

bf1 needs a few years of patching to catch up with perfection
Which game doesn't? However I think bf1 is enjoyable right out of the box.
The graphics and sounds just adds to the enjoyment for me. The busy graphics makes you feel like you are in a middle of a big battle with explosions going off all around you, bullets whizzing by your ear, etc etc.
It's a blast imo

I still use my G25 every now and then. I just have to be in a racing game mood to set it all up because it pretty much takes all my space away at the desk so can't really play anything else but racing games.
So most times I just use the controller instead.
It's not as good as the wheel but doesn't take up as much room either

I'd hold off on the season pass.
There isn't a huge rush to get it, nor there is a big discount to preorder so.
I did like the beta, although I've only had a very limited time to play it.
I am going to grab the game though. It's fun.

I am not sure about 21 accounts, that sounds nuts by the way.
The max I've ever had was 3 accounts and that works fine as of today.

CCP decided multiboxing is evil, that kind of ended that dream for me.
I am not sure when that happened, but as of right now you can run multiple accounts on the same computer no problem.
As long as they are not test accounts.

One never quits eve, just takes vacations
I've been playing eve on and off since it came out. Every year or so I get an urge to play it and I re subscribe than a few months later I get into some other game.
The free option may be enough to scratch the eve itch

Either way I think this is a great change for the game and it's player base.
This game has come a long way and if veteran players can get a glimpse of what changes have been made since the last time they've played it may make them re subscribe again.

I feel like, with every BF game, the response is always "this is garbage. The last game was so much better, I'm just going to keep playing that."

Yep that or the default "this game is a re skin" comment.
I don't know, I have Battlefront on the console (kids playing it) and this game is a lot more fun imo.
I didn't care for Hardline but I think I will be picking this one up.

It is reskinned Battlefront.
I remember reading the same comments about BF4
Re skinned BF3 etc etc.
Every BF game since 3 is a re skin
Re skinned maps and vehicles too. Nothing new
