Take a breath, and remember to only worry about things you can control.  Everything else you just have to deal with as best you can.

Except we can control the outcome of the election...

Exactly.  So exercise that control to your full extent.  Worrying beyond that isn't going to help.

I wouldn't worry about that, to be honest. Nintendo has always had every previous system be backward compatible, and I'd expect the same of the NX, if you're interested in getting it.

I am interested in the NX, if it actually ends up being what it sounds like it is going to be. I wonder though...  since Nintendo apparently doesn't consider the NX a successor to the Wii U, if the NX actually will honor backwards compatability with games for that system. Of course, time will tell...

One other thing is that it may be backwards compatible, but only for the 3/DS instead of Wii/U games.

That'd be just fine with me, as well. I have no actual interest in buying a 3/DS itself, but I know there are at least several games for it that I would like to play.

Journal-wise, I've finished Rayman Legends (my take on it is in the Completion thread). Now, I'm going to focus on Dead Space 2; Deus Ex: Human Revolution; and some other, lighter/smaller games. Since I'm off all next week, I'm looking forward to taking a good chunk out of them.

Oh man I forgot about this title! Looks really promising, as Secret of Mana was one of my first rpgs growing up. That game actually taught some basic rules of rpgs like leveling up, buying new equipment to increase defense, item conservation and most important of all, grinding.

And this game is being made by the Zelda Tri Force heroes team, so combat will be silky smooth.

"Wheels can take you around
Wheels can cut you down
We can go from boom to bust
From dreams to a bowl of dust
We can fall from the rockets' red glare
Down to 'brother can you spare?'
Another war
Another wasteland
And another...
Lost generation"

"Between the Wheels" by Rush is my favorite song from one of my favorite bands.  And the album it's on, Grace Under Pressure, is my absolute favorite Rush album.

There's a meme about how Trump is like that guy who'll say anything to get into a girl's pants and is trying to fuck the nation. 

I feel like the current sociopolitical climate in the US is festering me into the very thing I despise- a loathsome, hateful misanthrope.  The fearmongering is getting to me, the conspiracy theories are getting to me, the thought that people who buy into all that could compromise my safety and well being, etc.  I don't consider myself a violent person and I only reserve genuine hatred for a small handful of people who have directly hurt me and/or someone I truly care for, but there are now a handful of politicians (and I count Trump as one) who I want to punch in the face.  The fact that I'm directing hostility toward people who are so distant from me, who don't know me, frightens me because I feel like I'm losing my grip with reality.

I have a feeling I posted earlier in this thread about wanting to maintain my resolve to NOT let the fearmongering cloud me, but it's getting really difficult now what with the sociopolitical climate really trying to browbeat me into submission.

I'm curious, though.  What is foreign opinion of Clinton in general?

The Dutch generally prefer the Democrat candidates, as the country as whole tends to lean to the left (even most of our right wing parties could be considered a little leftisch by outsiders). However, these elections are different from usual: whenever I flip through Dutch newspapers I read about people being worried, worried that Trump will be voted into office. Clinton, while not perfect, is an experienced politician who understands her actions have consequences. She's less likely to make big mistakes and if she does, the damage will probably be limited. Meanwhile, Trump is just spouting whatever he thinks will make him more popular, regardless of how his decisions could change the international political and economical landscape. The thought that he might gain actual power scares people.

I find this to be pretty damning, although I guess some would agree with the statement
