We’ve compiled a selection of handheld gaming gifts, which you can start browsing right here! You’ll find plenty of games from this year for both PS Vita and 3DS, and some accessories, art, zines, toys, and other items that would make anyone* rejoice!
So check out our gift guide and get your holiday shopping done. Then wait for Luigi to emerge from a pipe into your house, ready to deliver your presents before flying away in a big green boot pulled by a team of Parakoopas! He is the Luison for the season.

TinyCast: Number one in the hood, G ⊟
I just wanted to thank you all for listening to the TinyCast and helping us take the top spot in iTunes’ New & Noteworthy chart for podcasts about Video Games! Our placement fluctuates every day or so, but it’s up there right now, so idgaf, we poppin’ bottles and plannin’ the parade.
It’s been fun to produce these, and we appreciate you sticking around while we figured things out over the last dozen episodes. We’ve improved the show a lot since we started, updating our recording setup for better quality audio, adding killer intro/outro music from Crying, putting the damn thing on the iTunes Store, and getting more comfortable with each other.
If you haven’t listened to the TinyCast yet, please try it out — I think anyone who enjoys our site will have fun with it. Still, it’s odd to see that enough people like it to propel the show to the top of this (admittedly specific) list.
We’re hoping to get a picture of just who accidentally stumbles upon our little website day after day, and so we’ve created a tiny survey. I promise the questions aren’t very hard, and you won’t spend more than a few minutes of your life answering them!
After the survey closes next Sunday (October 13), one lucky participant will receive a Tiny Cartridge sticker pack and maybe something else nice. Thank you so much for helping us!
A Tiny case for an XL system ⊟
I’m always amazed when anyone likes our site enough to make stuff like this. Like, I’ve been scared to venture into producing and selling Tiny merch (with the exception of our Tiny Sticker Pack) because I’m convinced no one wants to actually spend money on our stuff.

What do you think of our podcast? ⊟
The #Week of Tiny is over, and we’re still picking and contacting winners for the giveaway, but maybe you could help us out one more time while some of you are still in a commenting mood?
We’re interested to hear your impressions of TinyCast so far — if you haven’t listened to it or if you stopped listening to it, why? What do you like about it? What do you hate about it? What do you wish we’d do with it? Basically, what would make it a better podcast?
By the way, if you hadn’t seen it yet, we’ve finally set up our podcast RSS feed and we’re now on the iTunes Store! If you have a moment, we’d really appreciate it if you loaded up our podcast in iTunes and left a kind review!
TinyCast 005 - Underground Games
Tiny Cartridge • TinyCast
In this latest podcast episode, the Tiny Cartridge team previews 3DS games played at Germany’s Gamescom show, including Pokemon X/Y, Sonic Lost World, and more. We also sing the praises of two recent downloadable games, SteamWorld Dig and Spelunky, and discuss the recent awesomeness of the PS Vita.
Find out which 3DS title was worse than Sonic Lost World at Gamescom, what you should do before deciding to play Spelunky in bed, and how you can unlock the mysteries of PS Vita’s Near feature (maybe not)! By the way, um, we recorded this before the 2DS was announced… Sorry about that.
Win this stuff during the #WEEK OF TINY ⊟
The Tiny Cartridge birthday celebration rolls on! If you’d like to get in on our week-long giveaway, all you need to do is answer our daily questions in the comments or with a reblog — we’ll pick our favorite responses this Sunday.
Tonight’s question: "What do you want us to cover more?" Give us specifics about what games or trends are coming up that you want us to keep an eye on, especially if it’s something we’ve ignored so far!
What prizes will be giving away? Three Mercenary Kings (Early Access, image via F12adventures) codes donated by Tribute, Tiny Cartridge stickers and buttons, amazing Mega Man posters from Adam Sidwell, a Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate minipack (3DS and Wii U copies), a Pokemon megapack (hella DS/3DS games, the Nope x Mare Odomo-designed badges and shirt, and more), and anything else we find in our closets between now and Sunday.
Why does Tiny Cartridge suck? ⊟
We’re giving away a bunch of stuff as part of our birthday festivities! If you’d like to get in on these prizes, all you have to do is answer our #WEEK OF TINY questions to help us make the site better.
Tonight’s question: "What can we do to improve Tiny Cartridge?" Comment or reblog your answer about how we should stop posting dumb GIFs, or should reblog more, or should eat butts, whatever — we’ll pick the best responses at the end of the week and reward them with free games and more.
The Week of Tiny! Get some free stuff! ⊟
To celebrate our little site’s fifth birthday, we’re giving away some fun stuff we’ve accumulated over the years. All you have to do to enter is answer the #WEEK OF TINY posts/questions we’ll post over the next few days.
Today’s question: "What do you visit/follow Tiny Cartridge for?" Leave your answer in our comments or a reblog to enter — make sure they’re substantive/not forgettable, as we’ll pick out our faves/winners this Sunday.
So what are we giving away? For starters, a Pokemon Megapack (7+ DS/3DS games, shirts, and more), a Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate Minipack, Tiny Cartridge pins/stickers, and whatever else we manage to find in our closets. You can’t even find/buy a few of these items anywhere.
Yes, we’re counting comments from our birthday post yesterday, and the contest is open to all countries (though some games are region-locked). Make sure to use a real email address when commenting so we can contact you — naturally, we won’t share it with anyone because we aren’t terrible people.
Five Years of Tiny Cartridge ⊟
Though it feels both like we’ve always been here and like we just started doing this, today is the fifth anniversary of Tiny Cartridge, a site founded when three people sought the freedom to post even more pointless DS stuff that wouldn’t fit on the niche DS site they worked for.
So much has happened in the past five years: we’ve made countless awesome friends, met childhood heroes, appeared in several games (well, Tiny did), and built a huge community with the best readers anyone could ask for. All these wonderful things happened because we decided to start a Tumblr half a decade ago, to write about and share the things we love.
And during that time in our personal lives, we’ve bought houses, traveled all over the world, produced four actual human babies (two from co-founder Alisha, and twin girls from JC this year!), enjoyed exhilarating highs to make us forget the depressing lows, and basically just had the best time ever — a lot of that is thanks to the beautiful women in our lives, Alexis and Mary.
Thanks for tuning in and being a part of it all. We have a Week of Tiny planned that we hope you’ll enjoy. Please look forward to it!
Another Tiny Cartridge shirt for New Leaf!
This stylish tee comes from Michael Pang, who even snuck Petite in there — reminds me of Nintendo hiding Mario in the Year of Luigi 3DS XL. If you missed it, here’s the other Tiny Cartridge shirt QR code from Olga.
And don’t forget that you can spend your weekend listening to us talk about Animal Crossing: New Leaf in our new episode of the Tiny Cartridge podcast!
TinyCast 002 - Spike Spiegel and Sidephones
Tiny Cartridge • TinyCast
Here’s something for your weekend — we’ve returned for another special podcast (made less special by there now being two Tiny Cartridge podcast episodes)! You can grab the MP3 off the SoundCloud page, but there are services like SoundDrain if that doesn’t work. Sorry we are terrible at this.
While we spent the bulk of this episode talking about Animal Crossing: New Leaf again, we did go over other recent 3DS releases in the first 18 minutes, like Project X Zone and Mighty Switch Force 2. But yeah, most of the time we talk about our latest experiences in Animal Crossing and the new things we’re discovering/experimenting with.
Let us know what you think! Do you want more of these? Are there any topics you’d like us to cover? Do we need a new name for this? How can we make it better (iTunes)? Oh, and we have episode notes, links, and hella dream codes after the break.
