Felt like going to the bathroom inside a Poké Ball ⊟
The neat Tumblr/Pokémon GIF from ChipSprites popped up in my dashboard (if you’re viewing this on the site, it looks much better in its original resolution, without it being stretched by our gallery’s auto-resizer), and it reminded me of this photo I took a while back!
Would you believe that I shot this while in the bathroom at Tumblr’s Manhattan office a while back? I’m not sure if the look was intentional (doubtful), or if it still has this design, but I felt like I was inside a Poké Ball!

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!

Hopefully I won’t ruin everything and the Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers dude won’t revoke my internet access privileges (screenshot via anxietytowardsawonder).
I knew I liked the new heart animation on Tumblr’s updated dashboard, but I couldn’t really explain why until I saw this GIF/post from Max:
"The best thing about today’s update was it making me feel like every change in Red Hearts is ostensibly the equivalent of gaining or losing health in [The Legend of Zelda], wherein pleasing the community is equivalent to slaying Octoroks.”
It makes heart-ing (or even un-hearting) stuff feel 10x more satisfying than liking Facebook posts or putting a star in the corner of a tweet.

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.
Style Savvy: Tumblr bloggers
First off, hello, everyone visiting from @tumblr! Thanks for stopping by the site — if you like having silly posts about video games in your dashboard, give our “Follow” button at the top a click. We promise your dashboard will be a lot more fun with us in it!
Okay, back to this screenshot from Style Savvy: Trendsetters! I can’t believe Tumblr found its way into a Nintendo-published 3DS game. This scene doesn’t specifically name the service, but come on, we all know what she’s talking about. Here’s a clip of the exchange.
I was wondering when I’d finally see a video game take on these clever GIF tricks that play on Tumblr’s photo set borders (click the image if it’s not animating for you).
I learned last week that these have been popular on people’s dashboards lately, so I wouldn’t be surprised if there are a lot more similar game GIFs out there that I just haven’t seen yet, like this Super Mario World one.
If you’re not on Tumblr or aren’t familiar with its GIF culture, this probably doesn’t make sense, but it’s still a fun Charizard animated image for your Sunday.
