Merry Christmas from Tiny Cartridge! ⊟

Since no Christmas morning is complete without someone giving you clothes you didn’t ask for, here’s a special Animal Crossing: New Leaf tee designed by Das Fuzzlez. And here are two other Tiny Cartridge shirts, and an ugly Christmas sweater, for good measure. Joys be thine.

How’s your Christmas going? What were your standout gifts?

Beautiful Nativity Scene ⊟
Might actually be literally, really, for seriously, dying right now. Angel in the back is all, “I can’t even do this, guys. Dead.” The tiny arms under Luigi…
Merry Luigi-mas, y’all. Props to Secret Octopus for the pic.

More gift ideas for the holidays!

We updated Tiny Cartridge’s holiday gift guide, for those of you still looking for presents to get others or yourself. Along with suggesting 3DS/PS Vita games, handheld accessories, chiptune music, art, toys, and Year of Luigi junk, the guide now includes some of our favorite shirts and non-gaming books. Books are kind of like the portable gaming version of a TV series.

And remember all those rad Bit Bazaar-exclusive holiday cards we featured last week from Attract Mode (pictured above)? You can now buy the full pack online — it includes pieces from Kris Mukai (Pokemon), Kyle Fewell (Gravity Rush), Babs Tarr (Metroid), and Kelly Smith (Okami). While it’s expensive at around $18 (includes shipping) for the full pack, that’s kind of a steal when you consider you’re getting limited edition art from some really talented folks.

Gravity Rush holiday card by Kyle Fewell ⊟
So happy to have an excuse to post some Gravity Rush/Kat art here. This is one of several holiday cards Attract Mode will be selling at the Bit Bazaar Winter Market, a “unique celebration of the art and craft of indie games, web comics, and good food,” going down at Toronto’s Bento Miso this Saturday. Why does everything awesome only happen in NYC, California, and Toronto?

Christmas notes from your Animal Crossing mom

I was reading tweets last night from someone visiting her family for the holidays, suffering that special sort of anguish that only your parents can deliver during these reunions, and trying to escape into the cheerful Christmas community in their Animal Crossing town.

Why can’t more moms and dads be like the ones that send these sweet letters — picking out perfect presents and giving the family hamster the funeral he deserves?

Merry Christmas from Animal Crossing! This card comes straight from the mayor’s assistant Shizue, spreading a message of joy and cheer to all the rhinos, squirrels, and humans of the village. Nintendo also put out a couple of Animal Crossing wallpapers for your phone or PC, but neither are as great as the ones we posted yesterday.
Did Jingle bring you all the Jingle series furniture you wanted? Did you change your clothes and get more furniture from him? We hope you decked out your house in just the theme you wanted, and we hope you have a lovely holiday in the “real world” we hear exists somewhere outside of the internet and video games.

O come ye, o come ye to Mega Man

This is a really cute Mega Man Xmas card put together by Capcom, featuring music from the “Mega Man Christmas Carol 2" fan game! Yes, there are two holiday-themed Mega Man games. If that’s not a Christmas miracle, I don’t know what is.

Oh, well, that, yes.

Scribblenauts Unlimited (PC), more last-minute gifts

If you’re in need of a quick and cheap gaming gift, the PC version of Scribblenauts Unlimited is a ludicrous $7.49 on Amazon. There are also a ton of other crazy discounts for PC games like the Batman Arkham Pack ($9.99), Dead Island ($5.99), L.A. Noire ($4.99), and a number of bundles on Amazon’s Digital Holiday Deals page — I just grabbed Telltale’s The Walking Dead for $12.49 myself.

If you buy Scribblenauts Unlimited for a friend (or for yourself), they can spend the holiday right tomorrow by hanging out with Santa, and swimming around the ocean on a red-nosed reindeer-shark with Cthulhu, just like in these pics from Sandrya and Monotone Metamorphosis.
