Let’s face it.

Nothing in life is probably more awesome than having your own handheld game console. You see, playing video games is not just about having fun; it’s also about strategizing things in a clean way. You also see, playing video games is not just about being relaxed; it’s also about organizing things in a clear way.

Thus, it’s only right for you to give it a lot of thought before purchasing one.

You won’t need one that only fits a specific aspect of video games instead of your own need, would you? You also don’t want one that only fits a specific aspect of game consoles rather than your own preference, do you?

That being said, here are some tips for you when buying a handheld game console:

Make sure that your games are compatible with it.

Just like how some programs are only allowed to run on desktop mode and how some applications are only allowed to work on mobile mode, some games are also only allowed to run on a specific type of handheld game console. If you’re looking to play games like Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization, which was released last year in October by Aquria and Bandai Namco Entertainment, Inc., then you’ll need a PlayStation Vita. If you’re looking to play games like Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, which was also released last year in November by Game Freak and Nintendo Co. Ltd., then you’ll need a Nintendo 3DS.

Make sure that your console is compatible with you.

Just like how some tools are only used by those with certain skills and how some materials are only used for those with definite purposes, some consoles are also only used by those with specific preferences on a handheld game console. If you’re looking to play games in 3D-like mode, just like that of 2013’s The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Two Worlds by Nintendo EAD and Nintendo Co. Ltd., then you’ll want a Nintendo 3DS. If you’re looking to play games in PC-like mode, just like that of 2013’s Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance by PlatinumGames, Inc. and Konami Digital Entertainment, then you’ll want a Shield Portable.

Voting and Peer Pressure: Sticking to Your Decision

November 9, 2016 • savervote


Some people’s choices are influenced by peers or popular opinion for varied reasons. Those who do not want to stand out tend to make decisions based on how people around them choose. There is nothing wrong in discussing politics and election related topics with others. But it can be a problem if it means giving up your right to explore options and ideas before electing leaders into positions that could potentially impact not just your future but millions of others.

Peer Pressure and Influence

Positive and negative peer pressure is all about influencing thoughts, decisions, and behaviors. It is the results, however, that separate the good and the bad of peer pressure. Negative peer pressure can lead to decisions and behaviors that are contrary to your beliefs, core values, and instincts. The outcomes usually do not bring a sense of satisfaction of fulfillment in your life.

Most, if not all, people are exposed to positive and negative influence on a daily basis. If you take a closer look at the people around you, there will be those who inspire positive behaviors in you while there others that may try to influence you to think or act against your own principles. Finding ways to avoid peer pressure when making important decisions is critical.

Handling Differences in Views

Here are some ways to deal with differences of views and opinions without giving up your right to choose freely.

1. Follow your internal compass. Stay true to yourself can help you stand up to even the most intense form of peer pressure. You can avoid negative influence when you honor your values and have a clear idea of the principles you live by. You acknowledge your own individuality and respect yourself enough not to give in to negative influences that could make you betray your own belief system.

2. Review and reflect on your choices. Decisiveness is not about acting rashly. Before making any decision, take time to consider the consequences. Some people will try to influence your decisions to suit theirs. You do not have to jump in any bandwagon to please others.

3. Think of what matters to you. Ask yourself if giving in peer pressure can help you sleep well at night. Think of the things that you stand for and the things that matter to you. Consider how your choices can impact you and others around you.

4. Maintain boundaries. There will always be people around you who will try to challenge your beliefs and decisions. You do not have to engage in ugly conflicts and arguments just to prove a point. Stay respectful but maintain your personal boundary. Stick to your decision without putting pressure on others to accept your views.
