Nintendo makes it easier to post your Animal Crossing: New Leaf photos on Tumblr, Twitter
Nintendo has created a new site that will let you post in-game screenshots taken in Animal Crossing: New Leaf (and in Tomadachi Collection: New Life) directly from your 3DS to Tumblr or Twitter.
All you need to do is load up i.nintendo.net in your 3DS’s built-in browser, login to the appropriate service, pick your photo, add a message, and post. Yeah, it’s not as convenient as an in-game tool, but it’s another sign that Nintendo is embracing Tumblr.
Because I’m sure you don’t already have enough handheld games to play…
Just tryin’ to help a bro feel better. Even when we’re alone in Persona 4, though, social conventions get in the way.
At least take your hands out of your pockets while I’m hugging you, Yosuke. We’re having a moment.

For those of you who forgot (e.g. me), this releases today! A game you can put into your PS Vita and play! Amazing.

I keep forgetting that Persona 4 Golden is going to release for PS Vita soon — we’re just a month away, in fact. I checked Amazon to see what’s the haps with the
craps premium edition that comes packed with a crazy amount of great stuff, and, uh, the haps is that I’m not getting it…

Dreamcast cake, photographed by Adventure Time writer/artist/composer Rebecca Sugar. Today marks the 13th anniversary of the US release of the system! Jonathan “Persona” Kim celebrated by rounding up a collection of Dreamcast stuff of which I’m very, very jealous:
Persona also shared this model sheet for a Dreamcast shown in Skullgirls, drawn from memory!
My Dreamcast day was indeed spent playing a Dreamcast game, but on an Xbox. Does that count? This occasion also seems like a good time to link to my interview and impressions of GunLord, a game released this year for Dreamcast and Neo Geo by NG:DEV.TEAM.
Four Swapnotes for the new year, plus a very special message from Mare Odomo (click for larger images). These awesome sketches from Cory Godbey, Ashley Davis, Jonathan “Persona” Kim, and Hef helped me get over Nintendo not sending its Japanese New Year Swapnote — and its special stationary — to the rest of us.

A Persona 4/Mother 3 mash-up, found on Danbooru (sorry, I have no idea who the original artist is, though I’d definitely love to know and give proper credit). Like JC and Eric, I adore fan art, and because I’ve been asked to pass along a taste of my usual stomping grounds during my tenure, here are a few recent favorites!
Hope no one minds more Persona, which happens to be like my all-time favorite JRPG, btw. Like this lovely, and massive, piece (be sure to click the image for the full-sized version) by “Celery” that features every major character from Personas 1-4. I have no idea why everyone’s holding a household appliance; I’m assuming it’s a meme that I have zero familiarity with:
Via some random Japanese image board comes a ton of anime/game character mash-ups, including Yukiko and Chie from P4 as Morrigan and Hsien-Ko from Darkstalkers:
Though my absolute favorite costume swap would have to be Peach and Samus:
Speaking of princesses, Peach gets plenty of attention, whereas Rosalina from Super Mario Galaxy gets hardly any (well, she is new after-all). Expect for the following, and it somewhat confirms many people’s suspicions since day one:
As for the Mushroom Kingdom’s greatest champion, check out “Mario, Patron Saint of Brooklyn” by Butt Johnson:
Sticking with Nintendo, and back to Pixiv once again, a pretty neat-o Pokemon piece from Tomioka Nirou that’s also a bit different from the norm:
Time for more Darkstalkers and yet another random Japanese image board. Most are from Udon’s Darkstalkers Tribute book, though I’m not entirely sure about this one (Update: readers are saying it’s by Alex Ahad —jc):
Finally, here we have a bunch of Street Fighters setting aside their differences and lending a helping hand. Some will find the following endearing, some almost offensive. Hence why I find it rather fascinating:
BTW, I should mention that in addition to my own site, I also try to curate the best in video game fandom and artistry over at the Life Meter Comics blog!

A comic about Project Needlemouse, Sega’s new 2D Sonic project (click image for the full strip).
Here is a trailer in which Sega, the snake that it is, tries to make up for the lack of actual gameplay footage by luring you in with nostalgic audio cues:
Whisper “Say-gah!” into my ear all you want; I’m not uncrossing my arms until somebody tells me that Sonic’s shitty friends are sitting on the sideline for this (Not counting Tails. I like Tails.). Even then, no guarantees.

“Cut It Out, Mega Man” by Persona. Click these cropped panels for the full comic and its unfortunate ending!
I love the idea of video game characters in an office environment, trapped in their cubicles, overwhelmed by Excel spreadsheets and playing old games in an NES emulator whenever their boss isn’t around.
